With the recent news that Marvel Studios and Fox had made a deal to swap characters for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Deadpool, speculation arose that the two studios might not be at such loggerheads as previously thought.
Could we soon see characters from the X-Men franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and vice-versa?
Nope. Not at all.
Kevin Feige told Variety yesterday that such a crossover is “an impossibility at this juncture. We certainly have enough films to keep us busy for a number of lifetimes.”
The Marvel Studios head also told the magazine that he watches the emergence of other superhero movies with great interest. “I’m a fan, and I want to see what other people are doing in the world,” he said.
