Simon Kinberg Offers An Update On Possible FANTASTIC FOUR/X-MEN Crossover Plans

Despite past claims that the worlds of the X-Men and Fantastic Four will be kept separate for the time being, writer and producer Simon Kinberg talks here about the chances of bringing the two teams together. The good news? It definitely sounds as if the idea is on the table...


Simon Kinberg is a very busy man with producing and writing credits on everything from The Fantastic Four to X-Men: Apocalypse and Star Wars. Playing a role in both of the Marvel Comics superhero teams owned by Fox obviously means that he will potentially play a major part if and when the characters are brought to the big screen together. "To be honest, I’m so focused on each of the movies right now - I’m so focused on, now we’re post, on Fantastic Four, and making that the best movie it can be," Kinberg told ComicBook.com in a recent interview when they asked about the possibility of a crossover between the two properies. "And then we’re in prep on X-Men: Apocalypse, so those are kind of full time jobs. I love the characters, I love the characters in Fan Four, and I love the new cast. Obviously I love the characters and cast of X-Men. So, hypothetically, the notion of putting them together is really intriguing, and there’s some really fun stuff that the comics have done in the past. So it’s not out of the realm of possibility."

This is a much more positive update on the chances of a crossover than the last one we had, but with X-Men: Apocalypse taking place in the 1980s and The Fantastic Four presumably in the present, it could be some time before the timelines sync up and this becomes a reality...
