Fox plans to follow in the footsteps of Disney and Warner Brothers in expanding their comic-book universe and making it a more cohesive world.

The screenwriter of ‘Wolverine’, Christopher McQuarrie, spoke to Screenrant about fleshing out the X-Men universe, saying, “You know, Bryan [Singer] and I have talked about it a bunch of times – and in fact, right after I got back from shooting [Jack Reacher] I had a meeting with Tom Rothman – just a general meeting – and I said to Tom, ‘You know what I’d really love to do, is I’d really love to flesh out the X-Men Universe for you. You have this great wealth of these Marvel characters, and the X-Men franchise has only focused on a small handful of them – there’s many more.'"
 
He added, “And I thought that it’d be really cool to create a ‘bible’ – you know, a series of outlines of interlocking movies where you could do kind of what they did with ‘The Avengers,’ where you’re creating multiple movies that could come together as one movie here and there. And… you know… I never heard back [laughs]. But that would kinda be fun – to do something like that – where you could kind of become the curator for something like that."

It looks like Fox might finally be doing that, especially following Warner Brother’s plan for a Justice League movie and Disney’s success with ‘The Avengers’.  They currently have Bryan Singer returning to the X-Men universe with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and they have also hired Josh Trank [the director of the critically acclaimed ‘Chronicle] to oversee the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise.
