Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige might have ruled out any potential team up between Fox and Marvel, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s given up on the idea of the the X-Men or the Fantastic Four ever meeting the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe entirely.
In a recent interview with Jeremy Lasky, co-founder of Perception, the animation and deign studio responsible for most of the technology animation in Marvel Studios films, as well as the studio’s recent logo redesign, Feige broached the possibility that characters not already in the MCU could eventually find their way there in the future.
“My goal is to replicate the experience that, you know, comic book fans have reading the books up on the screen and we’ve been able to accomplish that beyond my wildest dreams over the last ten years,” Feige said.
The Marvel boss went to discuss one of the most notable long shot acquisitions in the studio’s history: a certain Wall-Crawler who has made his way into two mainline Avengers movies.
“Spidey in Civil War and in the upcoming Infinity War is yet another dream that I didn’t even dare to talk about publicly because I thought the odds of it were very slim,” Feige said. “So, no plans beyond that right now for any of the few remaining characters that aren’t already in the MCU, but I always say ‘never say never,’ who knows what can happen in the future?”
