I am one of those people who is a huge fan of the Avengers Assemble films along with any other Marvel spin-off around, but while X-Men, Fantastic Four and The Silver Surfer are all Marvel property, they don’t seem be in the same universe as each other.


X-Men: Days of Future Past writer-director Simon Kinberg has said that the X-Men and the Fantastic Four take place in different universes.  “They are definitely different universes in that all of the X-Men films have never acknowledged a superhero team called The Fantastic Four who live in New York City,” Kinberg explained.


Kinberg also went on to talk about reviving the Silver Surfer, whose last appearance was in the 2007 Fantastic Four Sequel. “We’ve definitely talked about him, I’m a big fan of him. It’d be cool to do something with him.”


Kinberg is also attached to the 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse, which according to Digital Spy “will follow the cast of First Class as they face an ancient mutant villain from the Age of Apocalypse comic run.” Simon revealed that the film is “radical”, saying, “It’s equal parts anxiety and excitement when it comes to making these movies. It’s a big opportunity because it’s a bigger scale than the we’ve seen before and there’s some really radical things in the comic that we want to do in the film as well.”


Sounds Exciting right??
