In response to statements by X-Men/Fantastic Four movieverse consultant and Scottish comic book mogul Mark Millar that rumors of a crossover between X-Men and Fantastic Four movies were unfounded, the movie franchises have reportedly decided to elope. Ignoring the wishes of Millar and Twentieth Century Fox, the two franchises will travel Las Vegas later this month and crossover in an Elvis-themed wedding chapel.
"We're in love," explained the X-Men movie franchise when questioned on the decision.
The situation may have be exacerbated by a public statement issued by Millar, which experts say may have provoked the young franchises into rash action:
Ye twa movies ur nae aff tae git merrit 'n' hae a cross ower. Dae ye ken me, young jimmy? young lassie? Ah'ament aff tae tell ye again, damn it. Ye'r ne'er tae see him again, dae ye ken me! pure dead brilliant four insae guid fur ye, X-men. Ye baith hae promising futures oan yer ain, 'n' ye'r wey tae young tae commit tae something sae important. Ninety percent o' a' superhero movie crossovers end in divorce, ye ken.
Despite Millar's protestations, he franchises will go forward with the crossover, stating that true marketing synergy cannot be repressed by "lame" parent companies, adding, "you're not my mom, Mark Millar."
