I’m sure this is a no brainer but Kevin Feige has confirmed that he’d love to see the ‘X-Men’ films being made by Marvel Studios. While the House of Ideas was able to work out a deal with Sony Pictures to include Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I don’t think Feige or the rest of us actually think there is much of a chance that we’ll be seeing our favorite mutants battling with or against The Avengers at any time in the near future.
Fox is just making far too much money off of them.
Specifically referencing how well things worked out with Spidey, Feige was asked if he’d want the X-Men back and while he skips over how the studio could use them he does say that:
“Well, the answer would always be “yes,” I think, to getting them back. But I think they have a solid plan over that at Fox for a while.”
Let’s be honest, while it would be hard to stick with a fully working back story for characters such as Magneto there are a full contingent of ideas from Marvel’s Ultimate Universe which is what much of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is based on that could be used.
Not that we’ll see it happen as he does point out that Fox has quite a big plan ahead of them. With ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ (which will most likely branch off into a new trilogy ) after that comes ‘Deadpool‘, ‘Gambit‘, a potential ‘X-Force‘ film, and who knows what else that they have in the works. I can’t see Fox allowing the mutants to change direction at this point. That isn’t even mentioning any crossovers that could carry over with the ‘Fantastic Four‘ if the film is successful.
The mutants aren’t really as needed by Marvel these days either as we’ve seen ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ introduce the race of Inhumans to us and also place a future ‘The Inhumans’ film after the ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’ films. Clearly they are lined up to be the race that Marvel is set to use instead of mutants in their cinematic world. With the heavy leaning towards space that we’ve been given with Thanos, Asgardians, and everyone in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ it only makes sense that we’ll be getting use of the Kree and their creations on Earth in an expanded role.
Do you wish that film rights for the ‘X-Men’ could be taken over by Marvel Studios or are you perfectly happy with how Fox has been handling the franchise so far? How do you think Marvel Studios would even go about including them all at this point? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
