X-Men: Days of Future Past was one of the summer's biggest hits bringing home over $745 million worldwide. It's sequel, [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267) is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016. The question is, where will the franchise go after Apocalypse? Well, here's my answer. It's going to lead to the long awaited MARVEL/DC Crossover. That's right, I said it.
As many of you know Days of Future Past was solely based on the Uncanny X-Men storyline "Days of Future Past." But many don't know that the Uncanny X-men series leads up to "The Uncanny X-Men and The New Teen Titian" series.
And here is how I think this will come to the big screen.
1. Possible plot for Apocalypse
This is what happened; After saving humanity and changing the future, Wolverine saw that Jean Grey was alive in the end of DoFP. This suggest that X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand never happened. This fits perfectly! In Apocalypse, Apocalypse will find a way to control Jean Grey during the confrontation between him and the X-Men. Believing that she can be saved this time, Wolverine will kill Apocalypse in hopes of his control over her to end. His hopes are brought down after he sees that Jean is "gone" and Dark Phoenix will have to die, again.
2. Possible ending to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
This is one of the most anticipated movie of all time. And this movie could play a huge role in having MARVEL and DC create a crossover movie.Since this is a sequel to Man of Steel, it would make since to have a Superman villain as the main villain; and what better villain to have than Darkseid. Batman and Superman will team up to defeat Darkseid. In the post-credit scene, Darkseid will be seeking to co-opt the near-limitless power of the Source with the help of Metron. Thinking that the energy associated with the Phoenix Force can help him penetrate the mysteries of the Source, Darkseid sets into motion a plan to recreate the Dark Phoenix by tapping into the memories of her former teammates, the X-Men, as well as drawing the residue of her power from a variety of sources, and then amplifying that residue, using energy streaming from the rupture of the Source Wall.
3. The Crossover movie
And here it is, the Crossover. This will involve the X-men and the Teen Titans.
With his help, Metron had pierced the Wall and his sacrifice effected a small rupture which bled a steady stream of energy. Both superhero teams are alerted to the dangers by the Titans' Starfire, who has knowledge of Dark Phoenix's immense destructive power. Despite their best efforts, each team is defeated and captured by Deathstroke the Terminator and Darkseid's shock troops. Darkseid brings the Dark Phoenix back to life. Both super teams work together, freeing themselves and taking Darkseid, Dark Phoenix, and Deathstroke in a climatic battle.
And there you have it folks, this is how I think a crossover movie will happen between MARVEL and DC. The odds are not in my favor (see what I did there) but I would love to see this happen.
