As Fox Network co-chairman Dana Walden revealed during today’s Television Crtic’s Association Press Tour, the network is actively pursuing a TV series based on Marvel’s band of mutant superheroes.
“We’re in negotiations with Marvel,” Walden revealed to the press. “We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to announce something soon. It’s something we’re definitely pursuing.”
Walden also clarified that an X-Men TV show, which he described as a “long-running” series, could (and would) only include characters from Fox’s X-Men Movie Universe.
“The characters from the X-Men franchise are with Fox on the feature [films] side, so we won’t be including Marvel charcters that are at ABC with Disney.”
