Do the stars of  X-Men: Days of Future Past want to see a crossover with the Avengers? That’s one of the questions James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman field in their SiriusXM Town Hall hosted by Jess Cagle (premiering May 23 at 7 p.m. ET on EW Radio). Because you really need to see McAvoy’s answer to get the full effect, you’ll want to watch the sneak peek below.

He likens the situation to a boxing match — if the audience interest is there, someone’s going to make it happen. “I would like to see us fight them, though. I’d like us not to team up. I’d like to see us fight them and, you know, annihilate them, as we surely would,” he says, laughing. “Be like, ‘Hey, Robert Downey. Oh, here you go. There’s your ass.’ ‘Sorry, I’ve got a bunch of asses in my hand. I think they belong to you Avengers?'”

In the second clip, McAvoy steals the scene again by massaging Stewart and punching Jackman. Enjoy.

The SiriusXM Town Hall with the stars of X-Men: Days of Future Past premieres May 23 at 7 p.m. ET on EW Radio (SiriusXM 105).
