This is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill. Please stay calm and take a seat.

One of the worst things about Marvel superheroes being scattered in different studios is that we won’t get to see them together anytime soon. Thanks to the deal between Sony and Marvel, Spider-Man will now join the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We also wait (and hope) for the Avengers and the Guardians to join forces at some point.

Some of us would love to see the X-Men and the Avengers together, but sadly that won’t happen anytime soon.

What can happen, however, is a superhero meet up with the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, both are property of 20th Century Fox.

And who better to make it happen than Bryan Singer himself?

Singer has proven to be ideal for the world of the mutants, outdoing himself with the latest X-Men movie, Days of Future Past. He is currently filming X-Men: Apocalypse, but he made some time to chat with Yahoo! MoviesHe shared the potential plans for a crossover.

“Those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it,” Singer said.

How exactly could these two teams come together? It has happened in comicverse multiple times. Like that one time in the 80’s with Fantastic Four vs the X-Men, in which the conflict ignites when the mutants are looking for an effective medical treatment to save Kitty Pryde. This leads them to Reed Richards and things don’t go well.

Singer didn’t give clues on how the crossover would happen.

He, however, did give the following hint: “It deals with time. That’s all I’m going to say”.

Of course it will.

There’s one condition on this project, though: whether it happens or not depends on the success of Apocalypse and the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.

“We’ll have to see how the films turn out. To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, you have to see how the films evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that”, Singer explained.

Are you as excited as I am? Let’s hope Fantastic Four wins the hearts of critics and fans (because I am convinced Apocalypse will do) and this epic crossover happens!

Fantastic Four, directed by Josh Trank, will be out on August 6 in the US and August 7 in the UK.

X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for a May 27, 2016 release.
