The Coming Of The Beast
Introducing one crossover character might be the least intrusive way of merging the two franchises. While this is almost happening with 2014′s "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" — both films involve the mutant Avenger Quicksilver — Fox and Marvel could make the merging more definitive by having actor Nicholas Hoult reprise his role as the Beast in a future Avengers film. Instead of having two different actors playing two different interpretations of the character, Quicksilver-style, this rebooted version of Hoult’s character could both introduce the concept of mutants to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and allude to a special school upstate that he graduated from.
