AVENGERS: Kevin Feige Talks Chances Of X-Men Crossover

Avengers X Men Comic

Kevin Feige Discusses Possibility Of Avengers And X-Men Crossing Over

Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige opens up about the chance of the Avengers and the X-Men crossing paths in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Feige’s comments about the subject are far from the first time the question of the two superhero teams uniting on the big screen has been raised. Indeed, fans have been clamoring for just such an event for as long as both film franchises have been around. Unfortunately, lack of foresight on Marvel’s part led to the company giving away the movie rights to X-Men and other properties like Spider-Man before the emergence of the company’s phenomenally successful Avengers franchise.

Of course, Feige is more than familiar with these issues but appeared no less hopeful about there someday being a crossover, saying that he hopes to one day recreate “the experience” that fans had when seeing all the character unite in the comics.

Per CBR.com, the source of this story:

The Marvel boss went to discuss one of the most notable long shot acquisitions in the studio’s history: a certain Wall-Crawler who has made his way into two mainline Avengers movies.

“Spidey in Civil War and in the upcoming Infinity War is yet another dream that I didn’t even dare to talk about publicly because I thought the odds of it were very slim,” Feige said. “So, no plans beyond that right now for any of the few remaining characters that aren’t already in the MCU, but I always say ‘never say never,’ who knows what can happen in the future?”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
