Bryan Singer Is Working On X-Men/Fantastic Four Crossover Ideas


In the words of the great American philosopher Ron Burgundy, “Boy, that escalated quickly!”

By that, I mean the chances of Fox doing a crossover between its two super hero franchises, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. In just a bit more than a year, we’ve gone from Simon Kinberg saying that definitely wouldn’t happen to rumors about a mystery 2018 flick that could possibly be a crossover to Bryan Singer pretty much coming out and saying he’s working on ideas for it.

At least that’s what he told Yahoo Movies in a recent interview promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past – The Rogue Cut. Singer said he’s already been talking to the Fantastic Four team (hopefully excluding Josh Trank … just saying) about how it might come together.

"Those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it."

The director clarified the “natural mechanism” part of it by saying that time is involved. It’s also worth pointing out that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the past, and the Fantastic Four reboot gives the team its powers via an interdimensional travel experiment gone awry, so there should be any number of ways to make this work.

And heck, some of those concepts could mean that Kinberg could still be write. Maybe the two teams aren’t sharing a universe after all, and they’ll just figure out ways to drop in on each other. It’s an idea that will no doubt fire up comic book fans, especially if Fantastic Four is any good. Fingers crossed.
