Bryan Singer confirms ‘X-Men’ crossover with ‘Fantastic Four’ film ‘in play’ at Fox

Fox has found success with their X-Men films and are attempting a reboot of their Fantastic Four franchise, beginning next month, and now X-Men director Bryan Singer confirms a much bigger plan may be in the works.

An X-Men /Fantastic Four crossover could happen evidently as the X-Men: Apocalypse director said crossover ideas are definitely “in play,” though he stopped short of confirming plans outright.

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

 That natural mechanism appears be: “It deals with time,” he teased. “That’s all I’m going to say.”

Time travel is nothing new for the X-Men, which was a centerpiece of Days of Future Past.

“We’ll have to see how the films turn out” he said. “To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, you have to see how the films evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that.”

Fox currently has July 13, 2018 reserved for an as-yet-unnamed Marvel movie.

Comicbook.com published an article listing some of the recommended storylines featuring a crossover between the two super teams.
