During an interview with USA Today, Avengers 4 director discussed the integration of Fox-owned Marvel characters into the MCU.

Disney’s pending acquisition of 21st Century Fox has fans eager to see how the Fox-owned Marvel characters will be used in the MCU, especially after the presumably game-changing events of Avengers 4. Co-director Joe Russo commented on the integration of Fox’s characters, suggesting Marvel Studios may take their time introducing them to the cinematic universe:

“It could be a little time, with the integration of Fox and all the Fox characters. I haven’t talked to [Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige] directly about it, so I don’t know what his plans are. But my guess would be they’re gonna integrate some of the other characters and take their time doing that.”
