Kevin Feige Removes All Doubt Over 'Avengers' and 'X-Men' MCU Crossover
Fans have hoped for some time that the X-Men might make the leap across to the MCU at some point, ever since the deal with Sony saw Spider-Man leap into the Marvel pool. Kevin Feige has given a resounding response to Variety when fronted with the question.
“It’s an impossibility at this juncture. We certainly have enough films to keep us busy for a number of lifetimes.”
Fox's franchise is on a knife's edge at the moment, it seems. The studio wants to make another film starring Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender, though there's no indication as yet that any of them are interested in returning. All three have seen their stars rise exponentially over the course of their work on X-Men.
At the same time, Bryan Singer looks likely to depart, and the franchise itself is looking at a rumoured soft reboot.
