FOX is Bringing X-Men to Television with the Producers of 24

SuperHeroHype

Jan 26, 2015

Back in October, a rumor popped up that FOX was looking to bring the X-Men to television in some form, and now TV Insider brings word that the network is in fact working to bring them to the small screen, pending the approval of Marvel Entertainment.

“It’s in negotiations,” Fox entertainment chairmen Gary Newman said. “We’re cautiously optimistic, we had a good meeting with them. That will not be on a fast track creatively. This is just the deal, now we have to find the creative.”

Newman went on to reveal he didn’t think the series would be ready to air before the 2016-2017 TV season.

The Hollywood Reporter adds that the network is in preliminary conversations with “24” producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto to develop the live-action series. Screenwriters Patrick McKay and JD Payne will pen the pilot episode with Katz and Coto set to serve as showrunners.

I'm betting Marvel will never do it. Their relationship with Fox sucks and this would be giving them a ton of power with very little in return. I don't expect anything to come of this.
