Could this be TRUE!

Superhero Collaboration

Marvel and Fox are rumored to be in early talks for Superhero Collaborations.

With the fact that so many characters from the Marvel Universe been owned by so many different studios like Sony, 20th Century Fox, and Universal the idea any of them could one day share on screen time with each other was never going to be easy if at all a possibility - let alone team up for billion dollar-grossing films like The Avengers and this summer’s Captain America: Civil War. 

Within the comics universe we often see cross overs between the likes of the X-Men and Fantastic Four and yes these teams have also been seen with the Avengers. But as most of these characters are the properties of different studios when it comes to the movie universe then duplicating these 'team-ups' is very difficult. However, now that Sony has worked with Marvel and ultimately, Disney, to allow Spiderman to appear along side the Avengers then this may have paved the way for the same to happen with other characters.

A supposed nonstarter may now be more of a question of: Why wouldn’t 20th Century Fox explore the possibilities that might come from taking advantage of Marvel’s extraordinary success? The question seems more like a "when" rather than a "Why" especially after the critical and financial failure of the studio’s recent Fantastic Four reboot.

New rumours have started to emerge that began with 'Fatman' on Batman producer Matt Key, when he was a guest on a recent episode of 'Collider Heroes' that sounds as though 20th Century Fox may be open to a discussions with Marvel about a potential collaboration sometime down the road. Key said:

“I’ve heard from a few of my sources, my little birds, that Fox and Marvel have… kind of talked, but not really, but like there’s interest from Fox, like, ‘Ooh, y’know, what they did with Sony and Spider-Man is actually pretty cool, like, maybe…’ We’re years away from that ever possibly happening… but I think that’s what it would take… Fox joining hands with Marvel…”

The rumour actually isn't that crazy! This would potentially increase the longevity of aging franchises like X-Men, and definitely improve the commercial viability of characters like the Fantastic Four. Fox could easily place their heroes in Marvel’s expert hands and still reap some sort of financial return instead of investing in expensive reboots or restructuring of the Marvels first family!

Captain America: Civil War's success demonstrated just how eager we are to see our favorite Marvel heroes duke it out. If Captain American and Iron Man on opposite sides can take in a billion dollars at the box office, think how 'kewl' an Avengers vs. X-Men movie might be to both studios!

Remember this may be nothing more than a rumour, but hey what a FANTASTIC thing this would be if it were true.
