With the recent announcement that Spider-Man will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will it pave the way for a movie between Wolverine and Iron Man? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Spider-Man has been recently announced to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The all-new Spider-Man has been rumored to appear in “Captain America: Civil War,” alongside the recent announcement that Jeremy Renner’s character, Hawkeye will also appear in the movie.
Will it also be possible for the X-Men to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)?
On “Good Morning America,” Hugh Jackman admitted that he would love to see his character, Wolverine and Robert Downey Jr.’s character, Iron Man, team up in one epic movie.
“Now that Spider-Man has joined, the seemingly impossible is possible. I would love that,” Jackman said.
The “Chappie” star also asked the show’s host, “Can you speak to Robert [Downey Jr.]? Put in a good word for me.”
While fans of the two characters might not expect a movie featuring Wolverine and Iron Man, Screen Rant analyzed the reasons why superhero movie team-ups are becoming a trend lately.
According to the outlet, superhero movie team-ups “allow for bigger marketing, bigger ‘event’ status” that push more and more fans to anticipate its premiere.
The outlet cited that superhero films are slowly dominating the top charts, and that it’s no longer a surprise that studios are rushing in to “form their own annualized interconnected franchises ever since Marvel Studios proved that it can work.”
Hughman’s character, Wolverine is rumored to return to the big screen next summer in “X-Men: Apocalypse” and third installment to the “Wolverine” movie. According to the outlet, Hughman seemingly hinted that these two movies are connected.
Hughman’s interview on GMA isn’t the first time he opened up on the possibility of teaming up with Iron Man. Speaking to the outlet, Hughman admitted that he would very much love to do a movie with Iron Man.
“Why isn’t it possible? Because personally, I would like to mix it up with Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man and kick his ass,” he tells the outlet.
