    I don't see Marvel merging their cinematic universe with Fox anytime soon, and I think the Marvel Studios movies have been much better. I guess I'd prefer their own take on the characters, so part of me hopes the Fox movies fail, although the odds of them letting these franchises go is slim given how superhero movies have dominated the box office. X-men has a big advantage in that they have thousands of characters and a movie like Wolverine doesn't require the main character to stand on his own the way Spider-man or the FF would, hence all of their movies of the Avengers-type advantage. Honestly, I think Days of Future Past could be awesome and the time travel angle allows them to bring back all the characters who were killed in X3, which I wish they would just ignore really. I'd also expect the Origins characters to show up.

I don't see Marvel asking for any merging simply because they've had nothing but relative success in terms of their movies.

I think Fantastic Four is going to revert in the near future, I don't see Fox getting that off the ground. I don't know what the time table is for a reversion is though.

I would like to see the properties not owned by Marvel revert back, but that's unlikely at this point for the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises.

But I think the most likely scenario is for Fox and Sony to start reverting the production of the movies to Marvel while still holding the distribution rights. This was the same thing that Universal and Disney did, where Disney/Marvel would make the movies and Univeral would distribute them. This gives the distributor a guaranteed source of revenue without having to worry about production costs and the risks of a movie bombing. This gives Disney/Marvel a better quality control process.

    I don't like the idea of another FF franchise. I think they might just embarrass themselves. No doubt Millar will have them go dark and that probably won't work well with the FF. The people remember those movies being bad.

I don't think so. Millar is a very commercial creator, he knows what will sell. And if he thinks a darker FF story will sell better, then he will do it. But I don't think that's the case. Millar is also very willing to take chances. He started off on Superman Adventures. He worked at Wildstorm, then the Ultimate line, then Marvel, then back to creator owned work.
