Well that would be cool!
Recently Bryan Singer, director of several of the X-Men films, including the upcoming X-men: Apocalypse, sat down to promote the extended cut of his last X-men movie, Days of Future Past and answered some fan questions.
Quite possibly the most intriguing question was whether or not we there were any plans for a crossover between the X-Men and Fantastic Four movies’ as both of their film rights, though Marvel comics, are owned by 20th Century Fox studios.
“Those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it.”
Though he obviously wouldn’t give specifics away he said:
“It deals with time. That’s all I’m going to say.”
Singer then dialed it back a bit and explain the rational behind the possible franchise mashup by saying:
“We’ll have to see how the films turn out. To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, you have to see how the films evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that.”
We all know that the next X-men film is an inevitable hit so the ball is probably in the Fantastic Four‘s court more than anything!
So we’ll just have to see how Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell fare in their superhero movie opening in less than a month on August 7, 2015 and keep our fingers crossed for a mutant crossover!
