Hugh Jackman has made no secret of his interest in teaming his Wolverine up with Chris Evans’ Captain America, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and with the news last night that Spider-Man will indeed be added to the Marvel Studios fold, he reiterated his desire to face off with The Avengers.
In an interview with Geek.com, Jackman shared his hopes of a potential Wolverine/Avengers collaboration.
“There’s so many forces at play there, man, beyond what anyone would want,” Jackman said. “The thing I’ve always loved about the comic-book world is how the fun thing was how a writer of a comic book could just pull all these characters together and what became a Friday-night discussion of ‘it would be cool to see Batman fight Wolverine’ and bang, Monday morning they’re working on it, you know. But that’s an idealized world.”
While all of the X-Men teaming with The Avengers is probably a pipe dream, I wonder if Fox wouldn’t consider “loaning” Wolverine for a guest appearance providing Marvel Studios would reciprocate as well? Iron Man in the next X-Men film perhaps?
