So rumors have been spreading about the very real possibility of a cross over of the two cenimatic properties. When asked at the SDCC panel the responses where a little vague but positive:
When asked about the potential for a Fantastic Four/X-Men crossover,Miles Teller, who plays Mr. Fantastic, said,
I think Bryan is a great director and I love the X-Men films. I don’t know how that would work. If someone can come up with a world where that works and it’s not just trying to combine a bunch of franchises to make money, then I think that’s great.
Jamie Bell, who plays The Thing,said:
To be honest with you, I think the X-Men franchise is a good template for how to keep something feeling new, fresh and good.
Neither the actors nor Singer would confirm or deny the validity of the rumor, it will probably depend on the outcome box office wise of the upcoming FF reboot which releases on August 7th. More as it develops.
