RE: What's currently going on at Marvel.
As long as it isn't Super Deadpool (from the end of Wolverine) I think I'll be fine with this.
Seems like Disney has quite the queue of movies to put into production.
BTW, how would a X-men 4 work? Some of the most iconic characters are dead, along with a plethora of other mutants dead/powerless.
Maybe they'll do what they did w/ Incredible Hulk and just forget the previous movie all together hehe.
