Last year we had heard whispers that FOX was considering bringing the X-Men brand to television just like Marvel and DC. Now today The Hollywood Reporter announced that 24 producers Evan Katz & Manny Coto will join Patrick McKay and JD Payne as showrunners of the show. The site does go onto reveal a deal with Marvel must be made because they have the television rights to the X-Men brand, while FOX has the film rights. They also go onto say that FOX isn't making this project a priority so we may not see anything about the show until 2017 if Marvel signs off on it. Back last year when the rumor first arouse it was also mentioned that FOX may use X-Factor (Obviously will need to change the name) as the team for this X-Men TV Series.
