10 Awesome Superhero Film Moments For When Marvel Owns Everything
Two words everybody: Civil War.
With three separate movie studios focused on building their own individual cinematic fiefdoms in Marvel Studios (the Avengers), Sony (The Amazing Spider-Man), and 20th Century Fox (X-Men and Fantastic Four), the odds of ever getting these Hollywood behemoths to come together in order to produce a movie featuring all of these iconic characters has long been a pipedream. Except the tide may be turning. Moviegoers were surprised to see a clip for X-Men: Days of Future Past at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It certainly wasnt on the level of some of the mid and end credit teasers that Marvel Studios has been making famous since releasing Iron Man in 2008, but it is the first real sign in years that there has been a potential thaw in the icy political dynamics that have continued to keep all these billion dollar properties separate. If The Amazing Spider-Man 2/X-Men: Days of Future Past connection is indeed a precursor to future cross-promotion, the sky is the limit for Marvel and Hollywood. The unencumbered freedom to mix and match heroes and villains from different series' and universes has led to some of Marvels greatest and most popular stories of all time. Giving any of these 10 comic book moments the Hollywood treatment (with the right batch of creators behind it, naturally), would provide these studios with a license to print money.
