After months of speculation, one fan seems to have the answer for how the mutants will finally join the MCU after Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters next month, with fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Spider-Man: Far From Home arriving shortly after in July. After those two conquer the box office, a new age begins in the MCU. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has remained tight-lipped regarding many of the specific story directions that the MCU will go in after these next two films but one thing is for sure and it’s that the X-Men are finally joining the MCU.
Given the history of mutants in Marvel comics, many fans have spent months speculating how mutants could naturally be introduced in the MCU without having been even mentioned over course of the last eleven years. A new theory via Reddit from username “k0binator” presents a way for Avengers: Endgame to easily spark the origin of the mutants thanks to a scene from last year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Check out the intriguing fan theory in the post below.
Fans who can’t wait months for another MCU adventure are in luck. From now until the highly-anticipated team-up movie hits the big screen, fans can see a very different kind of MCU movie in Captain Marvel. The 1995-set origin movie introduces fans to Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, who will be featured in Avengers: Endgame, as teased by the film’s latest trailer.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Avengers: Endgame and the arrival of mutants to the MCU as soon as more information becomes available. How do you think mutants will be introduced? Are you excited to finally see mutants join the MCU or would you rather the X-Men stay in their own separate franchise like Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
