Mark Millar Says X-Men and Fantastic Four will Share Same Universe

Shared Universes have been on the rise with superhero films. Marvel got it right and now DC wants in with Batman Vs. Superman. Well another wants into the trend. 20th Century Fox owns the rights to Marvel properties including The Fantastic Four and X-Men. 20th Century's Marvel Consultant Mark Millar seems to think a crossover will happen very soon.

In a recent interview with SFX, he stated when asked if they will be crossing over at any point

“Without question I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies. I think the most exciting thing in superhero movies, until The Avengers came along, was when Nick Fury showed up in Iron Man. Even though it was a guy with an eye patch it was really cool – and I expect we will see more of that.”

Now honestly do they need to crossover? Not for sometime in they to be at all. X-Men has a vast cast of characters already and it grows with each film. Where does The Thing fit in? I guess I should leave that up to Mark Millar. He's good with those kinds of things. 

Still very exciting to maybe one day see two great teams cross paths. Lets still hope for a big meeting between all of them and Marvel properties.
