Someone should make Hugh Jackman president of Marvel Studios, Sony, and 20th Century Fox. Why do we say that? Because he will give fans exactly what they want to see happen with Marvel Comics characters.
Earlier this year, Hugh Jackman went on record saying he wanted to see an Avengers vs. X-Men movie. Now, Jackman also wants to invite the Amazing Spider-Man to the party.
When asked by Collider what it would take to get all the Marvel characters together, Hugh Jackman said, "Mate, I ask the same question. I literally asked the same question the other day to Tom from Marvel who works with all the other studios, he works with Sony and Fox, that’s his job to liaise. I said, ‘Man, can this happen?’ and he goes ‘Look, it’s not gonna be easy because you’re working with different studios and they’re their properties.’ But I believe—maybe I’m optimistic, I understand at Marvel they’ve got The Avengers, they’ve got a lot of big things going on, but at some point I just find it almost impossible that there’s not a way to bring Iron Man, all the Avengers characters, Wolverine, the X-Men characters, Spider-Man, and somehow get them in together."
And while the various studio executives have been unable to make the crossover that everyone wants to see happen, Hugh Jackman has a very simple solution. Jackman said, "I don’t see the impediment! I’m like, okay you’ve got three studios, just split it three ways in terms of the cost, and happy days it’s all coming together! I would love to… I’m in for it, I’m totally up for it because I think that would be really exciting for fans across the board."
The Wolverine is set to be released in movie theaters on July 26, 2013.
