Comic-Con is around the corner with all the hype going towards DC people have forgotten that FOX will be holding there panel this Saturday. Seeing that Marvel have dropped out this year 20th Century Fox has got to cover our fanboy needs with their upcoming projects and details on the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Deadpool will also get promoted this year so in this article I will be looking into the panel giving my in-depth opinions on the event with some speculation thrown in.
Now with marvel studios confirming that they will not be attending this year so it means that FOX will bring out the big guns with their X-Men and Deadpool Hall H events.
MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB
Let’s go into some of my comic con predictions for the 20th Century Fox panel.
Deadpool Footage and Plot Details
This is a no brainier from the panel seeing that the Deadpool movie is coming around the corner and with Ryan Reynolds confirming his appearance at Comic Con in this amazing tweet.
I think that here we will get the first trailer for the movie which makes sense to get the public more interested in the Chimichanga loving mutant. They also will most likely reveal some story details because right now we have none which does baffle me because the movie is so close we can taste it.
So expect massive things from the studio regarding Deadpool at the Hall H presentations and maybe Reynolds will come out in the red costume.
X-Men: Apocalypse Teaser And More
Another pretty obvious movie choice is the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse which has been teased for some time now with Bryan Singer posting set photos every day it seemed throughout the filming period.
I do not expect that much this year seeing the film will not be out until summer next year so maybe they will just release some images from the film of the new outfits and mutants – some footage would be nice also.
Plot details would make me happy as well because the movie is being sold as the biggest threat in X-Men film history.
Just give us anything 20th century fox.
X-Force Movie Announced
Seeing that FOX is pushing their own shared universe with New Mutants and Deadpool a standalone X-Force film would make sense for us comic book fans because the characters are there missing Cable of course.
This movie could be sold as the extreme version of the team with somebody like Matthew Vaughn directing with the balls to the wall Deadpool this could be the best thing for the franchise – but with New Mutants coming soon that could push back the movie until 2019.
Let’s pray for this fellow nerds.
Fantastic Four/X-Men Crossover News
This is my last prediction for the upcoming Comic-Con panel that will be held this Saturday and that is some news on the rumored crossover movie for both the X-Men and Fantastic Four – I think this year we will get the confirmation and date announced on the show floor.
It seems like FOX are willing to get the film made with the likes of Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios already setting up their shared universes so it’s quite obvious that this crossover event will happen.
Let’s pray that we get some news revealed at Comic-Con because the fans deserve it right now also boosting the band for the fantastic four which is needed for the upcoming sequels.
I would also some clarification on how the teams exist in the same universe maybe plan a time jump after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse.
Whatever happens expect some big things from San Diego Comic-Con the panel is shaping up to be the best in years?
