With the X-Men franchise doing the best business it has ever done and the Fantastic Four series getting booted back up all at the same studio with the same writers, it would seem like an easy thing to do to have the characters team up in a movie together. And it seems like the writer agrees also.
Speaking with ComicBook.com on Sunday, Simon Kinberg, who wrote the latest X-Men movies and the Fantastic Four reboot, talked about the possibility of a crossover and how it is possible, but maybe not right now.
"To be honest, I'm so focused on each of the movies right now - I'm so focused on, now we're post, on Fantastic Four, and making that the best movie it can be," Kinberg said. "And then we're in prep on X-Men: Apocalypse, so those are kind of full time jobs."
He added though that it doesn't completely discount the possibility of having the crossover in the future.
"I love the characters, I love the characters in Fan Four, and I love the new cast. Obviously I love the characters and cast of X-Men," Kinberg said.
"So, hypothetically, the notion of putting them together is really intriguing, and there's some really fun stuff that the comics have done in the past. So it's not out of the realm of possibility."
With both properties at Fox, it has to be on their mind to have a crossover of some sort. This is becoming a trend in Hollywood with The Avengers, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and even the Jason Bourne franchise. It would allow Fox to take two of its bigger properties and put them together into a massive movie that could net even more money.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set to open in theaters on May 27, 2016 and Fantastic Four is opening on Aug. 7, 2015.
