fox schedules six marvel movies

20th Century Fox has had their hits and misses when it comes to superhero movies, but there’s no overlooking the fact that the studio has some of the biggest critical and commercial hits at the box office outside of Marvel Studios. Despite the well-documented messy chronology of the X-Men series, Fox is on a roll this year on the big and small screen with the genre-transcending Logan and Deadpool, as well as the visual acid trip that is FX’s Legion.
