It’s not likely we’ll see Cyclops face Captain America on the big screen in the near future, if ever in our lifetimes, due to the division of Marvel’s movie rights. Still, James McAvoy happily played out the hypothetical scenario of an Avengers vs. X-Men film in an interview with MTV.
Clearly, the Days of Future Past star has his biases, so his decision to back the Children of the Atom against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes isn’t a surprise.
“There’s like 40 of us, and like five of them,” he said. “And one of them’s a half-man, half-robot: You just turn off the power and he’s done.”
“Another one’s a guy with a shield who’s a bit strong. I mean, come on,” he continued. “Guy with a bow and arrow? We’ve got guns and stuff, [Wolverine’s] got claws. I could just go like ‘sit down,’ and they’ll all sit down … I could be like ‘take your clothes off,’ and they’d all be taking their clothes off.”
In short? “It would be a disaster,” McAvoy said.
