Marvel ‘Would Never Say Never’ to Crossing Over With ‘X-Men,’ ‘Spider-Man’
Don’t rule out seeing Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Man on the same screen one day — just don’t expect it to happen soon.
Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige, the mastermind behind the on-screen exploits of Earth’s mightiest heroes, answered fans’ questions during a recent Q&A session hosted by IGN. One of the questions centered on the possibility of the Marvel Studios-owned heroes crossing over with the Fox and Sony-licensed characters, such as the X-Men and Spider-Man.
“I would never say never,” he replied, a hopeful answer on the surface. But there’s more: “I would say, not any time soon would we be in a position to team up with other studios who [have] a few of our characters, because we have so many characters ourselves.”
Even without crossing over into each other’s territory, all of the Marvel properties seem to be following the Avengers approach these days: Fox’s upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past will merge actors from the original trilogy with those of First Class, while the Amazing Spider-Man films are seemingly building toward a Sinister Six confrontation.
