Though X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy and many other comic characters and stories belong to Marvel comics, it is a known fact that the licenses for the cinematic worlds belong to different studios. Disney acquired Marvel Entertainment, X-Men, Deadpool, Daredevil and Fantastic Four are owned by Fox, Sony owns Spider-Man and many other individual studios own properties like Ant-Man, Iron Fist, Blade, Punisher, etc.
This division of ownership is why the numerous worlds cannot collaborate easily. But Marvel President Kevin Feige has a goal. His new goal is to collect all Marvel comic characters under one roof. This would not only revive the comic reading experience but Feige hints that this merger could pave way to an amazing cinematic universe experience. Is he hinting a X-Men, Deadpool and Avengers reunion?
Talking to YouTube channel Perception, Feige revealed that he wants to replicate the comic book experience on the screen and that will be possible only if all the characters are under one head.
"My goal is to replicate the experience that comic book fans have reading the books up on the screen, and we've been able to accomplish that beyond my wildest dreams over the last ten years. And certainly, including Spidey in [Captain America:] Civil War, in the upcoming [Avengers:] Infinity War, is yet another dream that I didn't even dare to talk about publicly, because I thought the odds of it were very slim," he shared.
Adding, "So no plans beyond that for the few remaining characters that aren't already in the MCU, but never say never. Who knows what can happen in the future?" he told the channel in a telephonic interview, Screen Rant reports.
If Feige accomplishes his goal successfully, then fans could see Hugh Jackman return as the Wolverine. The Logan actor revealed his interest in reprising his Wolverine role if there is an X-Men and Avengers reunion.
While Sony and Marvel are collaborating for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Fox and Marvel are collaborating for numerous TV series, it doesn't seem far that the studios will join hands for some jaw-dropping movie experiences.
MCU is concluding its Phase 3 with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. So if the plans are set, the mighty collaborations of the comic world's best superheroes and the worst super villains will take place in Phase 4.
For now, Marvel has Spider-Man: Homecoming releasing on July 7, Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, Black Panther on February 16, 2018 followed by Avengers: Infinity War on May 4. The Avengers sequel features Guardians of the Galaxy.
