Fun Fact: Did You Know X-Men Are Not Human Beings Under U.S. Law?
In the X-Men universe, mutants have fought tirelessly to be treated as equals to their homosapien relatives, and to live their lives as they see fit - but the fact that the X-Men and their brethren are not human has regularly worked against them. Interestingly enough, this is something even the current law in present-day America recognizes.

The Reason Fantastic Four Is Refusing To Show Any Footage Yet
The Fantastic Four reboot is a pretty crucial project for the folks over at 20th Century Fox.

What Miles Teller Thinks About All Of The Fantastic Four Hatred
Maybe this is just Teller’s way of psyching himself up, like a star quarterback reading the press clippings from the opposing team. The thing is, the proof will ultimately be in the finished movie. And The Fantastic Four has nowhere to go but up.

How Guardians Of The Galaxy May Have Inspired Fantastic Four To Completely Change Course
One of the key reasons why James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has been able to do so well at the box office is because of the sheer lack of competition that existed in movie theaters this past August. Sure, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles put up a formidable fight in the Marvel movie's second week, but after that point a first, second or maybe even a third screening of the film was seen as preferable for audiences over whatever new stuff was coming out.
