The X-Men franchise has been a significant part of the Marvel Universe for decades. However, with the rise of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), many fans have been wondering whether the X-Men would be joining forces with Iron Man, Captain America, and the rest of the Avengers.
So, is X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Let’s explore.
What is the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a shared universe that encompasses all of the superhero films produced by Marvel Studios. It began with “Iron Man” in 2008 and has since expanded to include over 20 films that are all interconnected.
What about X-Men?
X-Men is a franchise owned by Fox Studios, which means it has not been a part of the MCU. However, in March 2019, Disney acquired Fox Studios, including its rights to X-Men characters. This acquisition means that there is now a possibility for X-Men to join forces with the Avengers in future movies.
When will we see X-Men in MCU?
It’s not clear when we’ll see mutants like Wolverine or Storm in an MCU film. Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has stated that it will take some time before they incorporate these characters into their films as they want to make sure they do it right.
What does this mean for future MCU movies?
With Disney’s acquisition of Fox Studios’ rights to X-Men characters and their integration into MCU movies, we can expect some exciting developments in future films. The possibilities are endless – from Wolverine teaming up with Captain America to Storm joining forces with Thor.
The Bottom Line
While X-Men hasn’t been a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe until now, there are strong indications that they will be soon. With Disney’s acquisition of Fox Studios and their rights to X-Men characters, it’s only a matter of time before we see mutants joining forces with the Avengers. We just have to wait for Marvel Studios to figure out the best way to incorporate them into their films.
