In a recent interview with Collider, Hugh Jackman has once again proven himself to be someone who’s got his finger on the pulse of Marvel fanboys, as he expressed interest in seeing Wolverine and Spider-Man appear alongside the Avengers.
“I literally asked [that] question the other day to Tom from Marvel who works with all the other studios,” Jackman told Collider in a recent interview. “He works with Sony and Fox, that’s his job to liaise.”
“I said, ‘Man, can this happen?’ and he goes ‘Look, it’s not gonna be easy because you’re working with different studios and they’re their properties.’”
“But I believe,” continues Jackman. “Maybe I’m optimistic, I understand at Marvel they’ve got The Avengers, they’ve got a lot of big things going on.”
“But at some point I just find it almost impossible that there’s not a way to bring Iron Man, all the Avengers characters, Wolverine, the X-Men characters, Spider-Man, and somehow get them in together.”
Of course, everybody knows that it’s highly unlikely considering how protective and territorial Sony, Fox, and Marvel are with regard to the lucrative licenses that they are currently enjoying, but Jackman believes that the three studio shouldn’t have any problems working together since it will benefit them all equally.
“I don’t see the impediment,” says Jackman. “You’ve got three studios, just split it three ways in terms of the cost, and happy days it’s all coming together! I would love to. I’m in for it, I’m totally up for it because I think that would be really exciting for fans across the board.”
