By Muuka Muyumba

Monopolies aside, fanboys and girls were a-twitter with the news of the X-Men and Fantastic Four potentially being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After this weekend’s bofo debut of Thor: Ragnarok, it is clear that Disney and Marvel have a great grasp on their Avengers characters.
