If you remember the 2005 Fantastic Four movie, directed by Tim Story, in a scene (at minute 54:22) Sue Storm walks on one of the streets of New York, where she comes across a newsstand, where she sees the People magazine cover with her face and the question Who do you work for?
Do not lose sight of the cover, there are also two familiar faces, those of James Marsden (takes a look at his next superhero role) and Rebeca Romjin (The mystical Rebeca Romjin).
Do the names sound familiar to you? Right !, James Marsden was Cyclops and Rebeca Romjin played Mystique in the first three X-Men movies, filmed between 2000 and 2006.

This is not the only idea that Fox had to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four on stage, since in 2010 the studio wanted to adapt Civil War with these two teams. Screenwriters Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz were in charge of adapting the plot of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven.
Mr. Fantastic and Wolverine would star, who would engage in a fight where the mutant would be seriously injured. At the end of the film, the heroes would make amends, letting the sequel be seen on the horizon, which would be an adaptation of Secret Invasion.
