Further to our story yesterday about Hugh Jackman saying on the Chappie press tour that he reckons Wolverine could beat Batman (here), he’s been talking more and whetted a million fans’ appetites for what is truly the stuff of dreams…
Talking to Yahoo! movies, the Wolverine himself, said about the potential of the X-Men meeting the Avengers on the big screen: “I’m surprised by what’s happened with Spider-Man joining [Marvel]. You’re in a very complex world where big, big sums of money are being spent for different franchises and so getting them together is difficult.
“Two years ago I’d have said you’d be a real optimist to think it’d ever happen,” he continued, “but weirdly now I just think it maybe could. I think there is the possibility that it will happen.
“You know, I think as an optimist I would love it…”
True believers, however, will know that the relationship between Marvel and Fox is a very troubled affair, so we must say this is unlikely. But, you know what? If Wolverine believes, then who the hell are we to argue, bub?
Needless to say, should things ever develop, we’ll be sure to bring you details asap.
