20th Century Fox Reportedly Considering Some Sort Of Team-Up With Marvel Studios

It sounds like it's a very long way off from happening, but a new report points to Fox mulling over a Marvel Studio crossover after seeing the response to Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War...

Deadpool was an unexpected hit, but Fantastic Four was a huge flop and X-Men: Apocalypse proved to be a critical and commercial disappointment. It makes sense then that 20th Century Fox is at least considering teaming up with Marvel Studios, especially after they essentially saved Spider-Man for Sony Pictures by giving the wall-crawler a critically acclaimed role in Captain America: Civil War.

Talking on the latest episode of Collider Heroes, Matt Key,  a producer on Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast, had this to say about some interesting rumblings he's been hearing. "I've heard from a few of my sources, my little birds that Fox and Marvel have... kind of talked, but not really, but like there's interest from Fox, like, 'Ooh, y'know, what they did with Sony and Spider-Man is actually pretty cool, like, maybe...' We're years away from that ever possibly happening... but I think that's what it would take... Fox joining hands with Marvel..." Well, that's pretty vague all in all, eh?

However, these comments still leave us with a lot to think about. Might Fox consider letting the X-Men join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in order to save that struggling franchise? Could Galactus and the Silver Surfer show up in a future Avengers movie in order to set up a Fox prodced solo outing? Time will tell, but the studio at least considering a crossover may be good news for comic book fans.
