I'm Sure This Has Been Asked A Million Times Already, But After Playing For 3 Years, I'm Just Curious As To Why They Haven't Been Added! The F.F. Are The Patriarchs Of The Marvel Universe, And It Would Be So Cool To Have Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Girl, The Human Torch, And The Ever Lovin' Blue Eyed Thing In Our Line Up!!!

    FF is currently in Fox's hands. Marvel doesn't exactly have the rights to put them anywhere especially in games. You can talk about X-Men, but their comics are so popular that it isn't possible to remove the X-Men from the comics. I'd say we can talk about adding the Thing and Human Torch, but other than that there's not really anything we can do.

    Yeah, it has been discussed ad nauseam. But there is a chance since Disney is currently trying to buy Fox Studios.

    Fox doesn't own them. They own their movie rights. The F4 and any character tied to them can be used in this game.. I mean we've got X-Men in this game. They aren't here because Marvel has put a boycott on them across all of their games. I remember when Marvel Heroes got ported to the consoles earlier this year and an article came out from Gazillion saying that Marvel banned then from using the Fantastic 4 and Silver Surfer after a certain time. They were in the PC version, but were told to stop selling them on the PC version. So yea. If this deal with Fox goes through, we could see them by end of next year... I hope.

    Fox had the rights to Blade, yet MCOC was still able to release him

    Maybe it's cuz the movies were so bad, they're waiting until a Marvel version comes out, which they anticipate might be somewhere down the road

    Marvel picks (or at least approves) who is added, and they don’t like FF currently.

    Honestly, I don’t miss them. I only miss Doom.

    Well, it's a long and sordid story. Lol. Constantin/Fox currently own the Movie Rights. They were awarded them by default due to a contract date not being met. Due to this, there has been a history of shaky ground concerning their use. Many games pulled them out, and some are still hesitant to use them because of the whole vibe between Marvel and Constantin (Fox). There are rumors of Constantin possibly liquidating and selling them back. For now, they still remain with them. Although the Movie Rights only belong to them, there is shaky ground. Plus the fact that MCOC usually accompanies contracts with Major Motion Picture Releases from Marvel, and without Movie Rights, this seems less likely to happen.

    Marvel will not do anything to help F4 popularity until they have the movie rights back. Fox has failed big time with them and has to continue making movies to keep the rights.

    Why does everyone think they don’t have the rights. They don’t have the movie rights. Video games and comics they do. It’s why x-men comics and spider-man comics are still published. The reason is marvel are cry babies and won’t use them until they get the movie rights back.
  • Dhc volts right . They do have the game rights But they cant make movies out of them now. Marvel, before its studio division came to life used to license out there charachters. Licensing is not selling mind that.
  • Marvel has more than 5000 charchters and it cant bring them all to mcoc .
  • Fox has movie rights of FF and xmen, but xmen are bigger and still make some money. However, Marvel has gone so far as to discontinue FF comics (for now) and not release as many xmen toys in an attempt to hinder any movies made to try and leverage their rights to get the movies back

    actually, Blade was at New Line. Those rights have since elapsed after the TV show got cancelled.

    Fox has all the movie and TV rights to X-Men and some merchandising rights.

    Constantin Films have the F4 movie production rights. I believe Fox has TV rights and some other ancillary rights.

    Fox had Daredevil and Elektra and they lapsed back to Marvel.

    Universal had Hulk, but Marvel got them production rights back, but Universal still has distribution rights. Hence no solo Hulk film since TIH because why would Disney give Universal/Comcast money for nothing?

    Deadpool's rights were with New Line (for some crazy reason he wasn't part of the X-Men rights), but were bought by Fox.

    Sony/Columbia had Ghost Rider. Those rights lapsed back to Marvel.

    Sony has Spider-Man, but cut a deal with Marvel to allow Marvel to make the films and Sony to distribute.

    Sony has a bunch of Spider-Man related characters, hence why they're making Venom and a Black Cat/Silver Sable movie called 'Silver and Black' and they're looking at making a Morbius movie allegedly.

    Lionsgate had the rights to The Punisher. They've lapsed back since Punisher: War Zone.

    Namor's rights are said to be 'complicated', but some have lapsed back.

    Black Widow, Deathlok, Captain America and a bunch of others were at various studios, including Columbia and Paramount but lapsed back.

    Darn shame that Thing and Torch aren't the Rock and Fire guys in this game. Korg is a cheap knockoff.
