Marvel Studios Talking To Fox About Galactus?

And I thought this type of trading was reserved for the Marvel Masterworks trading cards from 20 years ago. By the way, does somebody have that Magneto hologram card I need to complete my set?

IGN received word earlier today that Marvel was in talks with Fox to re-claim the rights back to their Galactus and Silver Surfer characters in exchange for what seems like an extension to the movie rights to Daredevil that Fox currently owns. There’s even talk that Marvel will help co-finance the flick.

The talks most likely reflect Marvel’s focus on the cosmic side of its movie universe given the Thanos cameo we received in Avengers and the announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy is coming in 2014. Of course, there are some wrinkles to this considering that Fox is on-board to rebooting the Fantastic Four franchise and losing two prominent characters of that side of the Marvel universe seems to be slowing those talks down.

It’s too early in the game to say where this is going, but it’s darn fun to watch. I propose a fantasy comic book movie character league should be started with the hopes of trading characters of different publishers together for each team. My dream of a Batman/Groot crossover is coming.
