Hugh Jackman Dreams of Joining The Avengers and Fighting the Hulk as Wolverine

In a perfect world, costumed heroes and villains would leap off of the pages of comic books fully realized in order to carry out their eternal struggles on movie screens, regardless of copyright issues.  The Avengers could welcome Wolverine and Spider-Man with open arms, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch could freely flaunt their mutant powers along with their heritage, and Deadpool could drop in anywhere he damn well pleases.  As it stands now, none of this is going to happen since various studios own the rights to different Marvel characters (and in some cases specific aspects of those characters).  That’s not stopping Hugh Jackman from dreaming, however.  In a recent interview for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jackman daydreamed about a future where Wolverine could join The Avengers and even fight the Hulk.  (Be careful what you wish for!)  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

When Steve spoke to Jackman during press for The Wolverine last year, he had more or less the same end goal of teaming up all the Marvel superheroes:

“Mate, I ask the same question.  I literally asked the same question the other day to Tom from Marvel who works with all the other studios, he works with Sony and Fox, that’s his job to liaise.  I said, ‘Man, can this happen?’ and he goes ‘Look, it’s not gonna be easy because you’re working with different studios and they’re their properties.’  But I believe—maybe I’m optimistic, I understand at Marvel they’ve got The Avengers, they’ve got a lot of big things going on, but at some point I just find it almost impossible that there’s not a way to bring Iron Man, all the Avengers characters, Wolverine, the X-Men characters, Spider-Man, and somehow get them in together.”

Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: Days of Future Past:

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
