Whether or not 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has lived up to the hype of its cinematic brethren, there can be no arguing that 20th Century Fox's 'X-Men' franchise and Sony's 'Amazing Spider-Man' have looked to emulate the broad-spectrum success of 'The Avengers.' Might that mean that the 'X-Men' could spill into their own ongoing TV series after the events of 'Days of Future Past'? Writer-producer Simon Kinberg weighs in.

Remember that plot synopsis roaming the web a few months back stating the new 'Fantastic Four' reboot would imagine the crop of superheroes as government weapons? Director Josh Trank and 20th Century Fox have since come out to bash it for its falsity, but while we still have till 2015 to see the new vision for this comic book property, writer-producer Simon Kinberg won't leave us hanging.

We live in a world where every single video game, old TV show, cartoon and even toy line has become ripe for cinematic adaptation, and now card games are entering the fray. 'Magic: The Gathering' is one of the most popular card games ever made, so it's not surprising that 20th Century Fox is now working to bring it to the big screen on a scale that's already being compared to 'Lord of the Rings.'

Aside from the title, 'X-Men: Apocalypse' -- which already conjures a whole slew of presumptions -- little is known about the next installment of the 'X-Men' movie series following 'Days of Future Past.' But this could quickly change as Bryan Singer is hard at work on the script, and he's recruited the writers from 'X2' to hammer down the story.

Though Hollywood seems obsessed with bringing classic comic book heroes to the big screen (for good reason, they're usually the biggest films of the year), 20th Century Fox has decided to mix things up by optioning the rights to a comic book series that hasn't even come out yet. Mark Millar's 'Starlight' may make its way to the big screen under Fox's comic book guru Simon Kinberg's supervision.

'Elysium' Interview: Neill Blomkamp's Team on Creating a New Sci-Fi World

Although 'District 9' highlighted a world that most audiences had never seen – the sociocultural divide in South Africa, writ large as a genre parable -- Neill Blomkamp’s debut film offered them something that was possibly even more unique, and significant: It felt like the first science-fiction movie in a long time that was completely original.
Duncan Jones and Gareth Edwards’ projects, 'Moon' and 'Monsters,' respectively, came soon therafter, but the trio reminded the world – not to mention Hollywood’s money-counters – that it was possible to tell stories that didn’t come from an already-popular book series, toy line or canceled television show. And now, with 'Elysium,' Blomkamp faces the pressure of following through on that promise: working with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster on a big-budget adventure financed by Sony, the filmmaker must demonstrate that his first film was not a fluke, but the future of genre filmmaking.
