Captain Marvel Skrulls

How Marvel Studios Can Use THE SKRULLS For Captain Marvel

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has explained to Marvel fans just how the rights between them and Fox regarding the Skrulls work – and how they were able to implement them for Captain Marvel. It’s a rather exciting concept, as most thought Marvel couldn’t use the Skrull race and that’s why they had used the Chitauri instead for The Avengers.

Gunn began using Twitter to explain the issue to fans, saying that only certain Skrulls used in Fantastic Four are restricted for Fox’s use – and that both companies can use the race in general.

He continues to explain that this is how they got to use The Watchers in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, albeit not Uatu who interacted significantly with the Fantastic Four in the comics.

The Guardians director also answered a fan who suggested Fox just give Marvel the film rights to Fantastic Four, actually siding with Fox in the discussion.

It certainly seems like an interesting legal loophole, and should continue to open new doorways for Marvel.

Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019.
