FOX Confirms Live-Action X-MEN TV Series In Development

An X-MEN TV series is in the early stages of development over at FOX Television!

There’s a whole lot going on in the X-Men cinematic universe right now and soon, that may be transferring into the world of television. With X-Men: Apocalypse and solo projects for Wolverine, Deadpool, and Gambit on the way, Fox to reportedly looking to create a X-Men TV series as a companion to the universe at large.

Said Fox co-chair Dana Walden at a Television Critics Association event:

“We’re in negotiations with Marvel. We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to announce something soon. It’s something we’re definitely pursuing.”

Why are negotiations needed, you ask? Fox was handed the rights to the X-Men cinematic universe, but they were never granted television rights by the mutants’ comic creators. Walden noted that despite needing a deal with Marvel, the show would stand as its own entity and probably wouldn’t relate back to other Marvel television projects.

Would you watch a television show based on the X-Men?
