NEXT WEEK: Newsarama’s Chris Arrant help us run down the must-read Comic Books for 2018!

Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez shared so many insider nuggets as our guest this past week. He even dropped the rumored FIRST Marvel/FOX film post merger. You won’t believe who’s in it and who will be playing the role of a certain Canadian-clawed mutant.

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover In The Works?

Will Hugh Jackman Reprise the role of Wolverine in a crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man?

“The muscles were flexing to take these third and fourth tier characters and lift them,” Gomez revealed when asked how the Disney/Fox merger would impact the MCU going forward. “It’s going to be a little easier with X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool.”

But then Gomez dropped the “inside baseball” bombshell of exactly what the bigwigs at Disney were planning to unveil

“The big win is a Hugh Jackman Wolverine with Spider-Man. Why? Spider-Man is the number one superhero merchandise generator ever. So combining those two characters…and Hugh is willing to do it.”

There’s been some debate on Secrets of the Sire as to whether Hugh Jackman needs to hang up the claws. Co-hosts Michael Dolce and Hassan Godwin have debated back and forth whether this merger, combined with he storyline in Logan, is the perfect opportunity to cast someone new in Jackman’s iconic role. But Gomez revealed the thought of Jackman reprising the role is just too good an opportunity to pass up at this point.

“[Wolverine] will have to evolve into another actor at some point, but there are a number of opportunities in the [Marvel] cinematic universe [waiting] to happen.”

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover

Hugh Jackman’s turn as Wolverine may not be over

About This Clip: Disney/Fox Merger
Jeff Gomez gives insight into a potential Disney/Fox merger saying it’ll be “huge for fanboys” and how that might dictate Marvel’s plans for the MCU in the coming years. With a bunch of movies getting new release dates including Deadpool and The New Mutants, what does this say about the direction Fox is heading?

“In the twilight of Fox they are doing interesting things with the franchises.”

This week on Secrets of the Sire: With word that 20th Century Fox has “talked” about teaming up with Marvel Studios, we broke down our top Marvel/Fox crossovers we wanted to see including Deadpool/Spidey! But can an R-Rated character exist in a PG Universe?

Plus! We went spinning the racks on the rumors that Keanu Reeves might be taking the red pill and reprising his role as neo in the Matrix. And we welcomed Victor Dandridge of Vantage InHouse Productions as he gives us our Con survival guide! With San Diego Comic Con just around the corner, learn the ins and outs of #conlife with the man who’s made it his career!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast where our guest Victor Dandridge gave the ultimate scenario for Deadpool to exist outside the R-Rating:

Deadpool Vs. Spider-Man

Host Michael Dolce: “The pairing was so successful that in 2016 Marvel actually went ahead and gave the dynamic duo their own series. With a solid, wise-cracking performance by Tom Holland in Civil War under his belt and Ryan Reynolds fulfilling his dream role as Deadpool in the Fox smash this past winter, this could happen. And it might just be the most anticipated – and most difficult – team-up to take place, what with the R-rating attached to the latter.”

Victor Dandridge: “I think it could work if Deadpool knew he was in a PG-13 movie.”

Host Michael Dolce: That could work! Break the fourth wall the whole time! Oh, one of our periscope viewers just had another interesting suggestion…”

PLUS: We launch our our Plan 10 Kickstarter right on the show! That’s right, the sequel to the Ed Wood classic begs the question: “Why raise the dead to destroy humanity when our cell phone culture is doing a fine job on its own?” It’s a fun book with a unique twist that pits aliens vs humans vs technology.

With word that 20th Century Fox has “talked” about teaming up with Marvel Studios, fans of the Avengers, X-Men and the Fantastic Four franchises may soon get their wish to see all their favorite Marvel characters on screen together.

Below is an excerpt taken from the article I posted on Inquisitr.com.

Deadpool Spider-Man

Deadpool Vs. Spider-Man

The “Merc With A Mouth” has met “Your Friendly Neighborhood Wall-Crawler” several times in the Marvel universe with hilarious results. In fact, the pairing was so successful that in 2016 Marvel actually went ahead and gave the dynamic duo their own series. With a solid, wise-cracking performance by Tom Holland in Civil War under his belt and Ryan Reynolds fulfilling his dream role as Deadpool in the Fox smash this past winter, this might just be the most anticipated – and most difficult – team-up to take place, what with the R-rating attached to the latter. But a fan can dream, right?
