X-Men producer wouldn’t mind having the mutants ‘mingle’ with The AvengersPosted 11:47 am on Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Here’s something I never would have expected. Lauren Shuler Donner, producer of the X-Men films, is interested in having X-Men characters “mingle” with the Avengers. The main problem is that it’s the studios that decide whether a character will have an appearance or not. Since Fox owns the rights to the X-Men films and Marvel owns the rights to the Avengers, it’s highly unlikely that they will come to a conclusion.
Here’s what Lauren Shuler Donner had to say about having X-Men and Avengers teaming up together.
I would love it. I would love it. I personally have close ties to Marvel because of Kevin Feige, because Kevin worked for me. But to take our characters and mingle them in the way that they were written, yeah, absolutely.
Since she is pretty close with Kevin Feige, they both may be able to sway the opinions of the execs to do a crossover. But would you really want a crossover with the current X-Men roster? The only way to make it work is to do a reboot…or to have Fox let go of the rights to Disney.
