FOX previously held the Alpha Flight film rights. In 2003 they were referenced alongside Department H in X2 and were also eluded to in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine; however, it is believed that the rights reverted in 2013 when they failed to further develop the property.

Evidence for this reversion belief can be found in Disney's trademark request on future film names from that year, which featured "Alpha Flight" alongside "Irredeemable Ant-Man", "Journey Into Mystery", "Strikeforce: Morituri", "Rocket Racoon", "New Warriors", "Guardians of the Galaxy", "Black Panther", and "Age of Ultron". - (Source)

It should be noted; however, that mutant members of Alpha Flight continue to fall under the umbrella rights still held by FOX regardless of the rest of the property.
