X-Men Update: Fox ‘Definitely Pursuing Long-Running’ Series


An X-Men series is currently mutating at Fox, network co-chairman Dana Walden confirmed Thursday.

“We’re in negotiations with Marvel,” Walden told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to announce something soon. It’s something we’re definitely pursuing.”

Regarding a potential conflict with Marvel, which is based out of ABC/Disney, Walden said, “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.”

Walden, meanwhile, noted that the project is being developed as a “long-running series” versus a limited series.
