While speaking at a press event for Chappie, Hugh Jackman said that he thinks that Marvel might connect with Fox to make an Avengers and X-Men crossover possible, just as the studio had done with Sony to bring the Spider-Man franchise into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Here’s what he said to Yahoo Movies:

I’m surprised by what’s happened with Spider-Man joining. 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, but weirdly now I just think it maybe could. I think there is the possibility that it will happen.

Fox owns the rights for X-Men and Fantastic Four, but I hope that they'd come to an agreement to merge both superhero franchises into an epic crossover film. 

"You know, I think as an optimist I would love it,” he said. “That’s the best thing about comic books; you can just pitch these characters into each other.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1; X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
