Fox now confirms the speculations for the X-Men Live-Action TV Series
Last week’s announcement from Fox was exciting with the whole X-Files being considered for a reboot. But now, the network is planning to revive another TV show but instead of it being a cartoon, this one is going to be a live-action series.
X-Men TV show was first aired on Fox network as an animated television series with a total of 76 aired episodes and 5 seasons. The original run was from 1992 ? 1997 and it was one of the greatest cartoon shows during that time.
Fox Network is now planning to make an X-Men live-action TV series
Report from The Hollywood Reporter suggests that, the network (Fox) is now having a preliminary conversation for the X-Men live-action TV series. As stated on that source, the producers of the live-action TV series are Evan Katz and Manny Coto (TV series 24). X-Men live-action was going to be written by Star Trek 3 Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne.
So far, there?s still no comment yet from Fox network about Katz, Coto, McKay and Payne?s involvement for the show.
According to TV insider, the network is now in negotiation with Marvel and Newman confirms it during an interview, ?It’s in negotiations, 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.? 20th Century Fox, the network?s sister company, currently owns the film rights for the characters of X-Men not for a TV show.
Meanwhile, screenrant recently reported that the description for the show is going to be something like Fringe that is set in the X-men universe?weird combination but I guess that could work. Screenrant also mentioned another rumor that Quicksilver (Evan Peters) will also be included in the cast.
Let?s just hope that the two companies will find a way to work together and bring the X-Men into the small screen with a live-action adaptation. I?m sure that will make a few comics fans happy.
