'X-Men' cast on crossover potential with Disney-Marvel

Popular movie and comic book franchise 'X-Men' is due back on the big screen this week.

Stars like Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy return with 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and that's got Lawrence saying one word over and over.

"...we get so excited about these characters - excited, excited, excited. It's exciting," Jennifer Lawrence said.

While 'X-men' stars are looking forward to Fox's latest project they don't see it joining forces with any rival studios for a big budget blockbuster in the near future.

That's after Disney and Sony reached an agreement for 'Captain America' to combine stars from films like 'Iron Man' and 'Spider-Man'.

"I don't know about that. I don't ever think they're going to want to share their money-making gravy trains. I don't think they're ever going to want to share that. Do you?" James McAvoy said.

"No," the actress replied

"No. Maybe when people get really tired of superhero movies, they'll do it as one last ditch desperate attempt to kind of milk the cow dry. But I don't know, I don't think I'd want it anyway," MacAvoy added.

Lawrence said: "Watch that happen like next year."

"Yeah I know, coming next summer...I think there are so many characters in the 'X-Men' universe that we could go and explore before we have to go and mash up with those guys [Disney's Marvel characters]. And with them as well, there's a ton more they can do," the actor said.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' rolls out in cinemas in Singapore from 19 May.
