Watch how Hugh Jackman reacts to the news about Spider-Man crossing over to MCU
Spider-Man is going to share the big screen with his other brothers and sisters, and that my friends, is truly exciting! We will get to see Spidey battle villains alongside Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawk Eye and many other characters and superheroes that are in the MCU today.
Even Hugh Jackman (Wolverine in the X-Men franchise) admitted that he was excited when he heard the news in an?interview with Screencrush?for his upcoming movie,?Chappie.
He said, ?I think that?s really exciting news. I’ve always loved the very basic idea of the comic book world where on a Friday night you can have a couple of beers with a mate and go ?wouldn’t it be great to see Wolverine faceoff against Iron Man? and bang Monday morning someone is drawing it, y?know? I always thought that was cool.?
Hugh Jackman also shared his thoughts about copyright, adding, ??I mean, it’s a very complicated world with rights, and who buys what, at what price, when, and I think it’s great that they’re kind of melding in, y’know. I’m sure by the time all of that is resolved it’ll be past my use-by date, but y’never know.?

What does this mean for Wolverine and the X-Men?
Wouldn?t it be great to see the X-Men battle with the dark forces alongside the Avengers? That will surely give fans something to look forward to but sadly, that won?t be happening anytime soon, especially with Fox?s huge success with their last X-Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past and the one before that, X-Men: First Class.
Let?s just hope that one day; Fox will also collaborate with Marvel just like what Sony did a few days ago. It may seem?unlikely to happen but maybe, if millions of fans wish for it, Fox might consider the thought. Just like what Hugh Jackman said, “y?never know.”
