Hugh Jackman Wants To Fight Robert Downey Jr.


iron wolverineBryan Singer and Joss Whedon may be butting heads over the use of Quicksilver, but Hugh Jackman wants to bring Fox and Marvel Studios together…by fighting Robert Downey Jr. The actor recently revealed he really wants the X-Men and Marvel Studios‘ movies to share a universe.

Fans have hoped there may be a possibility of all the Marvel movies from all the different studios could be in a shared universe and cross over in some form or fashion, and it looks like Hugh Jackman can be counted among that group. The actor recently spoke with Screenrant where he stated he asked all the Fox higher-ups why it can’t happen. He really wants to take a swing at Iron Man:

You know, obviously we have people from—one of the great things about this movie is that a lot of people from Marvel are here and it seems a lot more inclusive than it has been in the past. I don’t know what’s happening behind the scenes, but I think it’s fantastic. I actually just asked the other day, I said, ‘I don’t know what the legal situation is, but why don’t these companies come together? Why isn’t it possible?’ Because personally, I would love to mix it up with Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man and kick his ass. It’d be great. (laughs) There you go. There’s your quote. (Laughs)

So there you go. Its not just some of the fans that want a crossover, Jackman is amped up to assemble with The Avengers. It is an incredibly long shot and will probably never happen, but Hugh Jackman is at least asking the big questions. Incidentally Jackman is also comparing Days of Future Past to The Avengers in terms of size and epicness. What do you think about that? Do you hope Jackman twists a few arms?
