Something is definitely brewing between Disney/Marvel and Fox Studios regarding the comic book movie properties of Fantastic Four and X-Men, which Fox owns the movie rights to.

An earlier report stated that Marvel Comics was putting their Fantastic Four comic books on hiatus because of the new Fox Studios Josh Trank Fantastic Four movie. It was also said that Marvel Comics wasn't promoting their X-Men characters as much anymore because they don't own the movie license.

Now it's being said that Disney/Marvel has not developed any merchandise for the X-Men: Days Of Future Past movie.

It's also suggested the reason being is because of the upcoming Disney/Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

It does seem odd there are no X-Men movie toys as the aisles are littered with Avengers, Iron Man and Amazing Spider-Man toys.

Below you can check out tweets from Rob Liefield, creator of X-Force and a well-known comic writer and artist.

Liefeld also comments that we might see Spider-Man in Avengers 3. He might not be too far off as Disney and Sony do have a mutual deal over the film and merchandise rights. Perhaps the recent comments from Max Landis aren't too far off.
