CelebnMovies247.com reports that last month brought news that Marvel was rebooting Fantastic Four, also formerly owned by Fox, but nothing was said about the X-Men.
Then, just yesterday, the news was revealed that a new Wolverine movie “Old Man Logan Elseworlds” was in the works.
The Mutantkind (X-Men) is Among us, Well Almost in The MCU:
X-Men are heading back to the cinema, or possibly streaming since COVID is nowhere near going away.
Kevin Feige has been doing press to promote WandaVision‘s arrival on Disney Plus this week, though, and he’s finally opened up about where he’s at with introducing the Children of the Atom into the MCU.
While speaking to ScreenRant, the Marvel Studios president reiterated his passion for the characters and revealed that “discussions” are well underway behind the scenes.
You know how much I love the X-Men. I already said that’s where I started. I can’t tell you anything before we actually announced it, but rest assured, the discussions have been long and ongoing internally.
Why Marvel is Taking Time Reintroducing X-Men in the MCU:
It makes sense that it’s taking a lot of time for Marvel to work out what to do with the X-Men. Though, Fantastic Four can be easily brought into the fold with another reboot. And it is no secret that the X-Men corner of the MCU will no doubt be huge and maybe even a franchise in itself.
The studio has the potential to produce countless movies and TV shows of all kinds based on Xavier’s gifted students. It’s going to take a lot of planning from Marvel to make sure they’re handling the IP in the most fruitful way possible.
What is Up With Deadpool 3?
Right now is stated that Deadpool 3 could be the first X-related project out the door, but the delays in the project are caused by Ryan Reynolds’ popularity. He is in demand these days. Also, Reynolds is overseeing the writing of a script for the threequel – which will be R-rated and take place in the MCU.
The MCU is expecting Deadpool 3 to be sort of a heavy lifting intro of the X-Men franchise.
That means Marvel will be focusing on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Fantastic Four.
