Fantastic Four & X-Men Exist In Different Universes
About two weeks ago saw Bryan Singer confirm that talks are underway about a possible Fantastic Four / X-Men crossover movie.
While Singer admitted ideas are in play, now it's learned the Fantastic Four and X-Men actually exist in two different universes -- meaning no mutants in FF, and no FF in X-Men.
Fox producers Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker sent the NY Daily News the following in an email:
They exist in parallel universes. The Fantastic 4 live in a world without mutants. And the X-Men live in a world without the Fantastic 4.
Whille the Fantastic Four and X-Men do exist in different worlds, the producers still did state they would like to see the characters together on the big screen one day.
Crossing them over would be challenging, but we sure would love to see all those actors together, the way we had them on stage at [San Diego] Comic Con.
Singer previously mentioned if the crossover ever happened "time" would be involved.
Regarding no FF and X-Men shared universe, Hollywood producer Adi Shankar recently brought up a good point, which is that Fox missed the boat on showcasing how differently the public would treat the Fantastic Four (super-powered individuals or heroes) compared to the mutants (i.e. bad) of the X-Men.
