Fans have embraced Bryan Singer's "X-Men" movies (so far), but what about "The Fantastic Four"?

The new reboot comes out on August 7 and the franchises are tied not only through Marvel but also producer/writer Simon Kinberg. Bryan Singer recently talked to Yahoo Movies about "X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut" and spoke more about "X-Men: Apocalypse," but he also weighed in on the idea of an X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover. Long story short, it sounds like if both "Apocalypse" and "Fantastic Four" do well (with the burden really F4) then it may happen since there's "a mechanism" to do it, involving time, and "those ideas are in play."

In Yahoo's video, Bryan answered a series of fan questions, including if there would be another "X-Men" movie. Bryan emphasized focusing on "an expansion of the universe" with, potentially, "individual characters having their own films." But he said he's sure we haven't seen the last "X-Men." Right after that, he addressed the "Fantastic Four" crossover idea:

That would be a natural mashup, because they're both ensemble films and there is a mechanism by which to do it. I don't want to give it away. It deals a lot with time. That's all I'm going to say. We would have to see how the films turn out. How this film [Apocalypse] turns out, how Fantastic Four plays, to really understand what kind of desire [is out there] and how that would really work. I think to just say you're going to do it is kind of a mistake. I think you have to see how the films evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that. But there are those ideas in play."

Do you think an X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover sounds like a good idea, depending on the characters in focus?
