[News] Mark Millar Confirms X-Men/Fantastic Four Movie Crossover


Last September Twentieth Century Fox announced that they had hired comic book writer Mark Millar as a consultant to help plan out the future of their Marvel movie franchise and to take better advantage of the licenses and characters they own.

Millar immediately began helping Fox plan years ahead and his first goal is to bring in the best talent possible, something that the studio was already beginning to do with the hiring of Darren Aronofsky (later replaced by James Mangold) for “The Wolverine”, the return of Bryan Singer (replacing Matthew Vaughn) on the next X-Men team-up and Josh Trank on the Fantastic Four. This is all leading to a larger framework that Millar teases won’t be announced for another two years.

In a recent interview, Millar responds to a question about whether or not the X-Men and Fantastic Four share the same cinematic universe.

“Without question I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies. I think the most exciting thing in superhero movies, until The Avengers came along, was when Nick Fury showed up in Iron Man. Even though it was a guy with an eye patch it was really cool – and I expect we will see more of that. I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies.” So, if they’re sharing the same universe, showing up in each other’s movies… sounds like a crossover – it’s just a matter of time. In fact, this is something Christopher McQuarrie told us that he pitched this to Fox not long before Millar was hired, but the idea was ignored at the time.”

Bryan Singer directs “X-Men: Days of Future Past” with newcomers Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Boo Boo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Adan Canto, Josh Helman, along with returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, and Daniel Cudmore.
