As part of their new Dear Hollywood series, the heads over at CinemaSins have made a video arguing for something that fans have been craving for many years; a complete Marvel crossover film between Fox, Sony, and Marvel Studios. Even though the chances of such a film are slim to none, that won't stop fans from asking for it. "The only people who don't think a Marvel crossover film is a good idea are the people who can actually make it happen,", said Jeremy. What are your thoughts on a crossover film(s)? Do you agree with the video below? Sound off below!

All studios who own Marvel properties should join together and make a Civil War adaptation. Make it a 3.5 hour epic movie.

Also, i thought it was already stated that spiderman would be joining the avengers in Avengers 3??!!? it'll happen , but idk when.

Yeah, Marvel! Stop being stupid! Why don't they just do a DC crossover as well? Everyone's been asking for it. Batman vs Avengers vs Spiderman

@StingyFox

though the x-men universe cant fit into the mcu
the x universe has too much problem, and depths as is. it wouldnt fit into the crossovers, but spiderman can.

@FastFurious789

Yeah that's definitely true.

it'll never happen. Everything that the cinema sins guy said can be refuted. Sure they love money but having Spidey in avengers will not in any way improve avengers box office. everyone who watches spiderman already watches Avengers. Note: i said avengers and not cap or thor or even iron man. The marginal income from spidey in avengers is close to zero.

Next, opening up xmen to avengers just makes the two universes incompatible. this aint a fuccking comic book. in avengers there is no acknowledgement of mutants existing. Same with spidey films there are no hints that the avengers exist. there are many more reasons. Spiderman in x-men is just another mutant. there is nothing fantastic about 4 in the x-men universe. once again, you can do it in the comics as there are only less then half a million comic book fans or even less. With movies, people want grit, realism and consistencies. the audience of the movies is largely non-comic book readers who dont give a shit and will never pick up a comic book.

For Marvel, Sony and Fox's sake, a crossover should be set in an alternate universe. Same actors, same setting they've laid out for each franchise, just pretend as if they've co-existed all along. None of them have to worry about it affecting future films/story, unless they want it to.

Problem is who would direct it.

I like their videos, but they have been saying some dumb things about Marvel Studios.
AlexanderLykins - 6/4/2014, 8:04 PM
Not going to happen. With Feige at the helm this is literally impossible.
AlexanderLykins - 6/4/2014, 8:05 PM
I'm okay with that too.
TheDarman - 6/4/2014, 8:07 PM
I agree. I think Sony, however, has always had a shred of pride when consulting Marvel about a possible crossover. Sony has never said "just take him for a film and have him play with the Avengers". I'm starting to think Sony might do just that. Look at the post-Avengers bump that Iron Man got. Iron Man got a whooping 94.8% increase in its box office from its last film. In comparison, should Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 top out at around $710 milion (which I think it likely), The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would make around $1.3 billion. Marvel would, then, also be able to use Spider-Man which they've never been able to use before and, perhaps, increase their profit margin. I don't know if it would make more money than it would otherwise because I simply don't know and neither would the studios. But if it makes more than The Avengers, Marvel would at least have reason to question if it helped.

The X-men universe is in the 70s right now. Next movie will be in the 80s. Eventually they can do a modern day Avengers crossover.
Stryker and Trask were Hydra. Take it from there.

Or they could do a 3-part 3-studio Civil War, which each studio taking a movie a piece.

Nah just kidding. Not gonna happen.

If it were nothing but fanboys running these studios then I'd understand

But as it stands, Marvel has nothing to gain from this, and would actually be helping boost the profile of X Men, Spider Man and FF, all properties they'd like to have back. Not to mention, Arad has already stated Spidey would have to be a main character (LOL) not to mention what demands Fox would have

Business is the main thing keeping this from happening, in additional to ego and logic

if only it were that simple and they were that rational
0megaDaGod - 6/4/2014, 8:10 PM
As it stands, with the decreasing interest in the TASM franchise and Sony's increasingly fragile financial situation, we might be closer to Spidey's rights returning than we think

Preach!
