Simon Kinberg would love to bring the X-Men/Avengers universes together

04.12.2016

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.

DEADPOOL will be released on Blu-ray/DVD on May 10, 2016.

Would be amazing

but also a nightmare from a practical and plotting standpoint. Unfortunately, there is just no way to reconcile the world of Avengers with one where mutants have existed for decades

Too much confusion!

Though each movie on its own merit has been fun for the most part, as a whole the X-Men universe is way too confused as it is. Don't think this would help. Reboot FF though and collaborate on that for sure!

I have a theory that, with Jackman's impending retirement, and, Deadpool aside, the hype surrounding X-Men (and Gambit) feeling somewhat muted (not to mention Kinberg fucked himself last year with F4), that more-or-less rebooting the series could be in the near future. I'm pretty sure for most fans the only draws now are Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy/Patrick Stewart, and Michael Fassbender/Ian McKellen. The rest of the X-Men have been cycled through and recast. It would be one way of retroactively

It would be one way of retroactively bringing the two series together. I just feel like Apocalypse is symbolic of the end of something, as is the rather tepid excitement for it.

Sabre does make an interesting point about the X-Men living in hiding being at odds with the more daring exploits of the Avengers and other "Inhumans."

X-Men works As stand alone universe.

the complexity of being a mutant is irrelevant in a shared universe...where there is a GOD and Aliens...

Yes because the relevance of mutant kind has been lost on the 616 for the last 50+ years. What the hell are you talking about?

Agree with both to an extent. Definately don't think its a question of relevance but more about where each franchise is now. One of the things I enjoyed that made X-Men unique in 616 is the fact that they are supposed to be the next natural evolutionary step and that mankind as we know it would eventually become extinct by natural selection, leaving only mutants. That creates a very different kind of fear and battle because it is within as well as without (your very own son or daughter could

That creates a very different kind of fear and battle because it is within as well as without (your very own son or daughter could be a mutant. YOU could be a mutant etc.). On the other hand while X-Men definately works in the Marvel comics, I agree with Sabre in that it's probably a bit late for the MCU and the story they have told so far, and the current confusing continuity of Fox's X-Men films for me would be all wrong. Suspect a mess if they try it.

Also this would likely put a final nail in the coffin of Inhumans which I would.like to see not least because we have already had X-Men. As it is Inhumans seems to be tenuously hanging on at the end of Marvel's slate.

If this were to happen, the biggest disappointment would be that Jackman's Wolverine never got a chance to interact with Hulk, Captain America, etc. That was one thing I was always hoping for before he would retire the claws.

That was my first thought when I read this...sure wait until Jackman announces he leaves Wolvie and then it happens. I would have SO loved to see Jackman with the Avengers. Only thing that would have been weird is Wolvie would have been towering over everyone or eye level with everyone except Hulk when he's supposed to be shorter than Widow lol.

I agree with Des1. I want more story rather than seeing if they can shove every single superhero into one or more films. It's starting to become a cluster. It's starting to get a tad saturated at the moment.

Meh....

I don't see how we're missing anything. There are some stories I'd love to see (a Hulk / Wolverine movie would be awesome), but if you're just talking about dumping 10-20 mutants into a big Marvel film, then I think it would just make it a mess. It's just too much. They built up The Avengers for years to make just a team-up of 6 super-heroes (assuming you're going to call this version of Hawkeye & Black Widow "super heroes"). Age Of Ultron was a cluster-f*ck because of so much going on.

I just don't see how you could make that work in a 2 - 2 1/2 hour movie.
