Lauren Shuler Donner Talks Possible X-Men And The Avengers Movie Team Up
X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner (Deadpool, The Wolverine, X-Men 1-3, First Class, Days of Future Past) was asked by Crave if we could ever see key members of the X-Men join The Avengers lineup.
She’s very game while previously Kevin Feige has been very coy about answering that question. Although, he’s confirmed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were fair game mutant characters that were shared by both Marvel and Fox. Throw in Wolverine (with classic blue and yellow costume) in that mix and you’ve got a faithful mutant lineup added to the Avengers roster.
Lauren, how is X-Men: Days of Future Past going?
Lauren Shuler Donner: Not quite fast enough but it’s coming along. We have a great treatment and we’re just waiting for the screenplay.
Do you still have Jennifer Lawrence since she’s blown up?
Lauren Shuler Donner: Yeah, definitely.
Now that The Avengers has done so well, it seems like the other studios with Marvel properties can see the advantage of making a deal. Can you see a world where this generation of X-Men could be in an Avengers movie?
Lauren Shuler Donner: I would love it. I would love it. I personally have close ties to Marvel because of Kevin Feige, because Kevin worked for me. But to take our characters and mingle them in the way that they were written, yeah, absolutely.
There have also been some behind the scenes steps to connect The Amazing Spider-Man to The Avengers as well. A unified Marvel Cinematic Universe is the dream of most fans but the studios have to work things out with contracts and profit sharing before we’ll ever see Spidey or Wolvie fighting alongside Cap and Thor.
What do you guys think? Can this actually work IF they go forward with it?
