"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (2009)

Could another superhero be joining the already super-sized Avengers team? Maybe if Hugh Jackman had a say in it.

The “X-Men: Days of Future Past” star told IGN that he would love to see a crossover between “X-Men” and “The Avengers.” Jackman said his dream superhero movie would involve Wolverine appearing in a future “Avengers” pic.

“I would love to see him as part of ‘The Avengers,'” Jackman told IGN. “Because there’s a great dysfunction among that team, and I think Wolverine would fit right into that. He’d like that.”

What’s more? The clawed mutant wants to battle a certain angry green giant.

“There’s no doubt he’d get in a fight with Hulk at some point,” he said. “Those two bad, rage-filled characters are going to square off at some point. It would be quite fun. I don’t know how much fun to shoot it would be, because I’m sure I’d be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal.”

Jackman said the same thing last year after “The Avengers” hit theaters, and we can’t deny that “Avengers vs. X-Men” would make for an epic bigscreen adaptation. The only flaw in his plan? Fox still retains the rights to the “X-Men” characters (and “The Fantastic Four”), while Disney/Marvel have control of “The Avengers.” Even Wolverine’s adamantium claws might not be strong enough to cut through studio red tape.
