X-Men producer wants an Avengers crossover film

— Posted by Ryan


 

I think it can be said with confidence that “The Avengers” is the reigning Marvel movie champion, but when you’re at the top, the only place to go is down. With a movie so monumental, what future film could be a worthy challenge? How about an Avengers and X-men crossover? That’s what X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner would hope to see.

 

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.

I admit I would love to see it happen but just because the producer is on board, it doesn’t mean it’s a more significant possibility it will happen. They have the studios to deal with, the actors, directors, etc. Also by the time this “could” actually happen, many of the actors will have aged quite a bit, so we won’t have the familiar faces we’re used to. I would love to see the Marvel Universe expand like it did in the comics but “The Avengers” was a film that was established by individual Marvel character films. To crossover another super team into their world would take a lot of planning for it to maintain the credibility of the film’s predecessors. I would hope to see it someday but not without proper planning.

When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

    I think Avengers is overrated. It was not a bad movie by any means, but it’s not like I ever want to watch it again, or would claim people are missing out for not having watched it.
    I don’t care about this Cross Over in the slightest. What I’d really want to see is a Spider Man movie that gets Venom right. Also a Lobo movie that captures the dark humor and atmosphere of the comics would be great.

    I thought they should’ve had a Wolverine easter egg in Avengers.  Maybe show Wolverine in silhouette in a bar in Alaska watching it on TV or his claw marks on the wall or something like that.
