The acquisition of 21st Century Fox by The Walt Disney Company in March 2019 has produced many of the business news and headlines. Although there were a lot of talkings took place among superhero movie fans but that one conversation that was one of the biggest topics was what the deal meant for Marvel Comics’ famous mutants, the X-Men.
As many superheroes are now under the Disney banner, so we can expect the arrival of X-Men. Well, there are some possibilities and circumstances that may possibly bring X-Men into the universe shared by the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Here are some of the fascinating storyline possibilities that may possibly help Marvel ease the transition pleasantly.
Before reading ahead, readers must take note that the post comprises of some spoilers from the past Marvel movies such as Spider-Man: Far From Home and the latest Avengers films. If you have not seen any of them then you should stop reading it further.
So, the first thing which we believe can bring some possibility for bringing X-Men back is the snap effect. Yes, you heard it right. Well, as we saw in in Avengers: Infinity War that with just one snap Thanos eliminated half the population being turned to dust which was then being suddenly snapped back into existence five years later in Avengers: Endgame.
Well, you can expect anything from when such a massive amount of energy which rippled through the very fabric of the universe of which we have also seen some of the aftereffects of those snaps which were heard ’round the universe in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Secondly, though we were expecting multiverse in Spider-Man: Far From Home which obviously didn’t happened there but in various other Marvel movies mainly Doctor Strange as well as Ant-Man have already made it clear that the worlds we’ve seen in the films also be present among numerous for the MCU’s heroes as well as villains. In the recent time, Marvel has also declared plans to bring Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to theatres in the year 2021, and the title is pretty enough to suggest that we are going to be introduced to a number of new universes within the MCU.
On the other hand, instead of shaking up the studio’s universe, the best choice may possibly be just going to the low-key route and disclose that mutants have been in the MCU all along.
Also, one of the bizarre potential ways to present the X-Men as well as mutants as a whole into the MCU may possibly involve some of Marvel Comics’ most inexplicable and intricate characters. If the reports are to be believed then the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is going to put the genetically manipulated hero Rocket Raccoon front and center, whereas previous installments of the franchise have pointed towards the cosmic hero called Adam Warlock which may possibly also be in the mix at some point. Introducing the High Evolutionary, it will offer a chance to do just that while all together offering an easy narrative path to its movie mutants.
