In the comics, Multiple Man (a.k.a. Jamie Madrox) is part of the X-Men universe and gained his mutant powers at birth.

Tulsa's Allan Heinberg, who scripted the summer's biggest hit in "Wonder Woman", will now take on a character in the "X-Men" world as a film project in which James Franco will star.

Multiple Man aka Jamie Madrox has the power to create and control clones of himself instantly. He is a mutant who has the ability to create "dupes" - ideal replicas of himself - and absorb them back into himself, gaining their memories, knowledge and skills.

Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox is now developing an X-Men spin-off for Franco, which would see him play Multiple Man-a mutant with the ability to instantly create clones of himself.

According to the Hollywood Reporter James will be playing the mutant Multiple Man. It remains to be seen where Multiple Man might fall in this schedule.

Which, of course, is why 20 Century Fox has the rights to the character, and why Kinberg, who's at the center of all things X for the studio, and his Genre Films company are on board to produce the star vehicle for Franco.

In James Franco's next movie, The Disaster Artist, he plays enigmatic and freaky The Room director Tommy Wiseau. He first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1975 in Giant-Size Fantastic Four #4, and originally clashed with the superhero group after his unchecked cloning drove him mad.
