Simon Kinberg would "love to see" a crossover movie featuring 'Deadpool' and 'Spider-Man' but admits he isn't sure how viable it would be

Simon Kinberg would "love to see" a crossover film between 'Deadpool' and 'Spider-Man'.

The producer of 'Deadpool' - which stars Ryan Reynolds in the lead role - would be thrilled for there to be a film starring both action heroes.

Speaking to promote the Blu-Ray release of the movie, director Tim Miller said: "Simon and I have been trying to build bridges [with Sony]."

Whilst Simon added: "I would love to see it [happen]. Both of us are close with [Marvel President and Spider-Man producer] Kevin [Feige], we respect and love Kevin. If it were even remotely possible, we will find a way because we'd would love to see it."

But they are not getting too excited about it just yet, as Simon told the audience: "I just don't know if it would be possible."

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed that a sequel to the critically-acclaimed film will begin shooting in the autumn and Simon has hinted that there may be an appearance from time-travelling mutant Cable in a follow-up film.

He said: "I think there are some stories that could be R-rated. I don't know what they are, I mean I think the mainline X-Men movies have their own tone, which is a more operatic tone. It's more dramatic, it is more PG-13 in a way. 'X-Force' I could see being R-rated, and who knows?"
