Hugh Jackman Thinks Avengers X-Men Movie Crossover Will Happen
Hugh Jackman has been making the press rounds for his latest movie Chappie where the actor recently said he would be up to appear in the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool movie.
Now Jackman offers he thinks it's possible that one day an Avengers and X-Men crossover will happen.
“I’m surprised by what’s happened with Spider-Man joining. You’re in a very complex world where big, big sums of money are being spent for different franchises and so getting them together is difficult," Jackman told Yahoo. “Two years ago I’d have said you’d be a real optimist to think it’d ever happen, but weirdly now I just think it maybe could. I think there is the possibility that it will happen.”
Jackman lets it be known that he would like to be featured on screen with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Iron Man.
“I can’t think of him as anyone else," Jackman said. "They are inseparable…. I would love to do that.”
Back over a year ago, Jackman made similar comments about a potential X-Men and Avengers crossover noting that he would love to kick Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man's ass.
As Jackman notes Spider-Man is surprise, maybe the powers that be at Marvel and Fox will see the mutual benefit an Avengers and X-Men shared movie would bring to the table.
"Chappie" premiers March 6th.
