Report: MARVEL Will Attempt to Shutout FOX, Declare War on X-Men/Fantastic Four

Rumor has it that Marvel is planning to shutout FOX in an attempt to regain the movie rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four.

According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel is planning to cancel two Fantastic Four comics, both the mainstream 616-Universe and Ultimate Universe, which Marvel sold the movie rights to 20th Century Fox when they went into bankruptcy some years ago to hurt the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

It seems as though rumors concerning the FOX shut-out courtesy of Marvel are true for the X-Men as well, though in a different field.

The X-Men comics are some of the highest selling Marvel series being published so their cancellation is out of the question, but if Rob Liefeld is to be believed, they could be doing something else to hurt the X-Men films.

While some may question why Rob Liefeld has any right to say anything, it should be noted he's been involved with the previously announced X-Force film, him knowing some of the inner workings of the studio may not be totally out of the question.
