X-Men Becoming Star Wars?
Published by Courtney Russell / October 8,2015

Universe buidling seems to be all the rage now in Hollywood seeing that now studios such as Disney's Marvel, Fox , Warner Brothers DC and other big names are now expanding on their stories and characters in a bid in combining them into one shared Universe, much like what Marvel and Disney did with the Avengers, Antman and Gaurdian of the Galaxy. One of the biggest and most successful of these is Star Wars, and that’s the model that 20th Century Fox as a roadmap for their own superhero realm. Much like Star Wars X-Men are looking to combine the past with the future culminating into one big anthology. The question is can they stay true to the continuity, one of the biggest issues that comic books themselves now face?

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter about his latest project, Ridley Scott’s The Martian, producer Simon Kinberg, who is all over Fox’s superhero universe, had some interesting things to say about how they’re approaching this world.

He said: "It's almost like the way the Star Wars movies now are. The Episodes are the mainline movies, and then you have the stand-alone movies. The X-Men flagship is [Michael] Fassbender, [James] McAvoy, Jen [Lawrence], and Nick Hoult, and then we have the stand-alone movies."

With Fox deciding on their new model we can surely expect the universe to broaden as more characters are given their own standalone films.
With actors like Hugh Jackman's character Wolverine coming close to the end of their run. Which characters can we expect Fox to focus on next? Now  seeing that the 2016 Deadpool movie will also have cameos from some already established X-Men such as the metal muscle clad Colossus. 

After Apocalypse hits in May of next year, the Channing Tatum-fronted Gambit is slated to hit the following October. And not because Apocalypse is the last in this latest X-Men trilogy, producer Simon Kinberg doesn’t deny the possibility of making more films, and he says: "I would love to keep making movies with that cast."
The future is still undecided and all we can do as fans is wait to see more of these awsome stories being made on the big screen.
