Simon Kinberg would love to bring the X-Men/Avengers universes together
As superhero films continue to play a major part of our cinema-going experience each year, studios will constantly be on the lookout for bigger and better ways to keep us excited. Unfortunately some of our fanboy dreams will remain just that as the rights to the heroes we'd love to appear on screen together are held by different studios. While speaking with CraveOnline during a press-junket for DEADPOOL's upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release, DEADPOOL director Tim Miller said that he "would love to, someday, in part, heal the rift between the world of X-Men and the world of Avengers." X-MEN franchise producer Simon Kinberg added:
I think we all would, and I think there's so much crossover in the comic it would be neat to one day see those characters share a movie. It would be fun to all team up [Fox and Marvel] one day, somehow, together, if that would work.
Both Miller and Kinberg are close with Marvel's Kevin Feige, and Tim Miller even included a reference to the Marvel Studios president in DEADPOOL by using his name for "Feige's Famous Pizza" as a way to "try and bring these worlds together." Obviously the idea of the X-Men and The Avengers teaming up is all just a pipe-dream at the moment, but as the case of Sony partnering up with Marvel in order to bring us a new version of Spider-Man shows us, anything is possible.
