Another Fan Poster For Avengers Vs. X-Men Tees Up The Crossover To End All Crossovers


Avengers: Infinity War, Justice League and Marvel’s Civil War – three mind-bogglingly huge movie crossovers that represent years of groundwork and intricate plotting. But they all pale in comparison to Avengers Vs. X-Men.

Originally dreamed up by Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker and Jonathan Hickman in 2012, the comic brought together a whole host of famous faces – namely Captain America, Cyclops, Hulk, Iceman, Iron Man, Magneto, Spider-Man, Storm – for what it turned out to be a crossover event like no other. And thanks to Disney’s newly-unveiled takeover of 20th Century Fox, a film version of Avengers Vs. X-Men may soon become a reality.

It’s yet to be formally announced, of course, and until Disney and Fox iron out the kinks, it’s best approaching any development with a heightened degree of skepticism. Because let’s face it: an acquisition of this size will likely take a full year to consummate – if not more.

But to keep us ticking over, one talented Reddit user by the name of ‘Kevin_from_work’ has rendered a beautifully simple poster for Avengers Vs. X-Men that features arguably the biggest character from each franchise: Iron Man and Magneto. It certainly acts as a nice complimentary piece to BossLogic’s inspired poster (also included in the gallery below), which beamed online earlier today just as the Disney-Fox merger was made officially official.

Now for the potentially million-dollar question: when will Avengers Vs. X-Men come to fruition? Assuming Marvel boss Kevin Feige places this fabled project on the fast-track – and chances are he won’t, given Marvel’s tendency to build up to landmark event movies organically – it could be with us as soon as 2021, just after the launch of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Either way, with Deadpool, X-Men and the Fantastic Four all bound for the MCU, Marvel’s Phase 4 is shaping up to be extraordinary. And we do mean extraordinary.
