If there is one thing that fans are already looking forward to following Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox, it would be some major crossovers featuring the X-Men and Fantastic Four. However, it looks like Fox already planned it before Marvel Studios even came up with crossover events. Not surprisingly, Fox's abandoned project almost pit the mutants against the superhero team.
It was previously reported that X-Men: First Class screenwriter admitted that he and former writing partner Ashley Edward Miller were commissioned to pen a screenplay for an X-Men movie that included Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and many more. Now the description of the planned movie has been revealed by The Hollywood Reporter. Check out the full description below.
"Johnny Storm [goes] nova while trying to apprehend the villain Molecule Man. Johnny blows a hole in Manhattan and sparks the superhero registration act in response to the carnage.
"The heroes are split on opposing sides, and among the key matchups was a Wolverine vs. Mr. Fantastic battle that ended with Reed Richards pinning Wolverine down, extending his hands until they're one molecule wide, and using them as scissors to cut the mutant's arms off (!!!). Eventually the heroes make peace … leading to a post-credits scene that teases what's next: A Skrulll invasion."
As Stentz had confirmed, The Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass was already being considered to helm the major crossover. However, the project was scrapped as Fox decided to pursue X-Men: Day of Future Past.
