Give the MCU the X-Men

This petition had 717 supporters

For years Marvel's been split among different companies. To save themselves from bankruptcy, Marvel sold their movie rights of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men to Sony and 20th Century Fox. However, Marvel Studios recently made a deal with Sony to bring their iconic Spider-man into their very successful Marvel Cinematic Universe in the film "Captain America: Civil War" and are planning to release a solo film starring the new Peter Parker this summer. So I propose that it would be beneficial to all that 20th Century Fox, who own the rights to the popular X-Men, make a deal with Marvel Studios to bring those characters to the screen. Being able to see such iconic heroes as Wolverine and Storm alongside the ludicrously popular Captain America, Iron Man, and the Guardians of the Galaxy would make fans very happy. In being able to see them all together would cause these fans to give more money to Marvel Studios and Fox becuase this is something people have wanted to see for years. Hugh Jackman, the illustrious Wolverine actor, who has portrayed Logan for seventeen years has reportedly stated that he would be open to donning the claws once more if it meant being able to be on screen with the Avengers. He also noted an interest in his Wolverine fighting Mark Ruffalo's Incredible Hulk, a rivalry between characters that goes back decades, to the very beginnings of the clawed crusader. Being able to see these two engage in combat would drive millions to the theaters to see this on the big screen, monetarily beneficial to Marvel and Fox. There would be no losers in this exchange and fans and the companies would have everything to gain by working together to make this happen. My goal is to reach a milestone where Marvel and Fox notice the fan outcry for this and actively move toward a deal to bring the characters together under one banner. I am ultimately a huge fan and the thought of seeing these characters onscreen together is enough to overwhelm me with joy as I'm sure it does many others. So please help raise this petition and share it with others so we could possibly see this come to fruition in the near future.
