In a recent interview with Collider, actor Hugh Jackman was asked what it would take to get Wolverine to finally meet up with the Avengers in a future film, to which he responded:
“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.”
Obviously knowing about the issues with the characters rights, the actor then suggested that the profits just get split 3 ways:
“(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.”
While fans have been saying it for years, its still nice to see that even the actors themselves want to make this happen. Maybe one day these studios will put all the greed and politics aside and just give the fans what they want, a TRUE Marvel Cross-Over Film.
