10 Ways The X-Men Could Be Integrated Into The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Full Reboot

Marvel X-Men MCU

Now, the easiest and most likely way to bring the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is to completely ignore everything that came before. 20th Century Fox’s franchise would be become completely standalone and unrelated to the X-Men in the MCU, just as The Amazing Spider-Man films are now that Tom Holland plays the famous web-slinger.

This would be exciting for several reasons — the timeline in Fox’s X-Men series is pretty messy and seems to be unsavable, so finally having a coherent universe for the X-Men to live in is very appealing. In addition, we would get a whole host of new cast members who can bring justice to characters that haven’t had their potential fully realised yet on screen.

    problem with three is how would you explain decades long history with other characters? just pull a foxmen and pretend it doesnt exist in the comics?

    Nah they could easily say the mutants were in hiding, in the foox animated series no one even knew about mutants until night of the sentinels.

    Go back to that show, it perfectly displays how the mutants can pop up in the mcu.

    Sure people know about them, but like spiderman no ones talked about it yet, like spidey existing in the mcu and all they had to do was visit his corner of the universe.

    same with the xmen, cap could know logan from ww2 but not know he was a mutant, just a canadian super soldier with unknown origins.

    they could easily set xmen first class up for a 90s film, do weapon X and tell wolverines story which should take place at the same time as weapon X, then after a trilogy of double of those two franchises, you combine them into uncanny xmen with xmen gold and blue, night of the sentinels, xmen coming out of hiding, the world learning about mutants and then the true mcu is born.

    The template is in the comics, you just have to realistically match xmen events with events in the mcu, and it should fit in like a nice puzzle piece.

    40s magento is a kid wolverine meets cap on a black ops mission in WW2, we haven’t seen everything that happen at that time, so whos to say logan didn’t show up and cap saw him as an ally but cap wouldn’t know what a mutant was.

    skip all the way to the early to mid 90s, prof X is a teacher of the school for gifted youngsters and forms the first team of xmen, x men first class which consists of cyclops jean grey beast iceman and angel they go up against magneto and in the sequel another first class villain. at the same time weapon X could be taking place with saber tooth deadpool etc, then the sequel to that could be alpha flight and at the end hulk fights windigo and wolverine. Post credits scene is wolverine meeting prof X mirroring iron man meeting nick fury.

    modern day we open with a girl mutant named jubilee at the mall sentinels come after her she meets the xmen, mutants get exposed the rest is gold.

    I only ask that they recast most of the actors but leave Deadpool alone, maybe in a side universe

    I like the idea of dropping the MCU in the middle of the House of M story… it’d basically turn the whole MCU on it’s head to learn that all this time Scarlet Witch was just playing a trick on the world by hiding the mutants, just as Thanos starts messing with the fabric of time/space.

    I think it’s fairly obvious they will recast overall. It gives them a chance to do the characters correctly. Currently there are two Quicksilvers now and Josh Brolin would be two characters, rebooting solves both problems. Deadpool could be the single exception since he can break the 4th wall and potentially make this whole thing a hilarious moment in a film. But even Deadpool’s cast should be recast since they were poor choices. They could make Domino much better. They can also still integrate xmen history (such as wolverine and cap meeting each other) with all new cast
