Back in late May, Hugh Jackman made mention how he wanted to kick Iron Man and Robert Downey's ass on the big screen.

Now Jackman is back at it again, promoting a shared movie universe.

Hugh Jackman recently spoke to Collider and stated he asked a Marvel liaison between the three studios about that every question. 

Mate, I ask the same question.  I literally asked the same question the other day to Tom from Marvel who works with all the other studios, he works with Sony and Fox, that’s his job to liaise.  I said, ‘Man, can this happen?’ and he goes ‘Look, it’s not gonna be easy because you’re working with different studios and they’re their properties.’  But I believe—maybe I’m optimistic, I understand at Marvel they’ve got The Avengers, they’ve got a lot of big things going on, but at some point I just find it almost impossible that there’s not a way to bring Iron Man, all the Avengers characters, Wolverine, the X-Men characters, Spider-Man, and somehow get them in together.

While the liaison seemed not as sure, Hugh Jackman seemed much more optimistic.

(smiling) I don’t see the impediment!  I’m like, okay you’ve got three studios, just split it three ways in terms of the cost, and happy days it’s all coming together!  I would love to… I’m in for it, I’m totally up for it because I think that would be really exciting for fans across the board.

Hugh Jackman stars in The Wolverine out July 26th and X-Men: Days of Future Past out May 23rd, 2014.
