Fox, say what you will, has two of Marvel’s big film properties and has no plans to release them back to Marvel. Wth that being said, word came out that Bryan Singer has confirmed plans to have the two groups cross-over in a film.
Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but X-Men director Bryan Singer already wants the rebooted First Family in his mutant sandbox.
In a recent interview, Singer—who’s busy filming next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse—revealed that there’s been initial talks of a live-action X-Men and Fantastic Four crossover.
“Those ideas are in play,” he says. “That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it.”
So there you have it. plans to cross Marvel’s first family with Marvel’s Mutant family. Will need to see if this ends up borrowing from any story line in particular (X-Men Vs. Fantastic Four for example) or be something else entirely.
