Marvel quashes plans for a movie crossover of X-Men and Avengers

Hugh-Jackman-Wolverine-Chris-Evans-Captain-America-570x427Marvel Studios has ”no plans” for an ‘X-Men’ and ‘Avengers Assemble’ crossover movie.

Although President of Production Kevin Feige thinks the idea – championed by ‘Wolverine’ star Hugh Jackman, who wants to team up with Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man – would be ”fun”, it isn’t on their radar for the immediate future.

Speaking during a Jameson’s Done In 60 Seconds Google Hangout online Q&A for Empire magazine, Feige said: ”There’s certainly no plans right now. Enough amazing things have happened in the 13 years that I’ve been at Marvel, I never say never to things like that. But I don’t think it’ll be any time soon.

”’The Avengers’ have so many stories to tell. It’s not like creatively we need or want to include the X-Men, but as a fan I think it would be fun. It’s Phase 27!”

    There are a lot of constraints to making this crossover. Top one being that different studios own the right to both franchises.
    Fox owns X-men, Disney owns Avengers. The profit sharing formula is cumbersome at best.
