J.J. Abrams Said It's Possible The CLOVERFIELD Film Characters Will Crossover
Following the release of The Cloverfield Paradox, J.J. Abrams hopped on Facebook Live for a Q&A regarding the franchise and fielded questions from fans about what's coming up for the future. When asked about the possibility of the film's characters crossing over with each other in a future film, Abrams guaranteed nothing, but said it's something they've discussed (via Dread Central):
“We’ve talked about versions of things like when we did 10 Cloverfield Lane, we were thinking Michelle – the character Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays – it’s such a sort of weird origin story of this kind of incredibly, I think, awesome heroine, that idea of following her story is really cool. And then at one point, we were like, ‘You know what would be really cool? What if they crossed paths with Gugu [Mbatha-Raw]’s character Ava?’ You start to think of ‘what ifs.’ And I think the bigger ideas that we’ve had about where this thing goes haven’t necessarily been those ideas, but they’ve kind of been fun theoretical offshoots.”
I'd say that's too unrealistic to have characters like Michelle and Ava team up, but I gotta remember what franchise we're talking about here. Ultimately, I'd say it comes down to what the fans want...so I want to hear your opinion. Should the Cloverfield films have crossover elements?
