Chris Evans and Co. Want the X-Men in Marvel Cinematic Universe
After getting Spider-Man back, a lot of Marvel fans want the X-Men to join MCU as well. Check out what Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony Mackie had to say about the mutants.
During their panel at Wizard World Philadelphia, the cast of Captain America: Civil War was eager to have the X-Men be part of the MCU fold. When asked about the X-Men they would like to work with Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon in the MCU, was quick to name Halle Berry. Halle played the role of Storm in the X-Men franchise, but Anthony doesn’t even care which mutant she plays as long as she joins the MCU. “She can be Wolverine. She can be Cyclops. She can be whoever she wants,” said Anthony.
Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) chose the mutant Mystique while Chris Evans (Captain America) would like to work with Michael Fassbender who plays a younger version of Sir Ian McKellen’s Magneto. They were also excited about Deadpool.

Fox recently released X-Men: Apocalypse. The reception for the film has been mediocre at best, which comes as a disappointment considering it’s the ninth installment in the series. Even though I’m a fan of the X-Men franchise I didn’t enjoy the movie, and the box office haul is under what Fox predicted. Not to mention that the timeline is a mess! Fox needs to decide what it wants to do with the mutants. There are plans to continue the main franchise along with a spin-off titled New Mutants. Hugh Jackman starrer Wolverine 3 is also set to be released next year.
The studio saw unexpected success with Deadpool, which goes to show that the audience is still interested in the franchise. However, Fox needs to provide them with something fresh in order to keep them engrossed. With numerous superhero films out there, the competition is tough and Fox needs to make the right decisions or else the X-Men franchise could share a fate similar to Fant4stic Four.
MCU already has its own versions of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. That is why, if Disney wants, they can also add Wolverine and Storm to the MCU because even though they are mutants they have been known to be members of the Avengers. Let’s see what happens.
What do you think? Would you like to see the X-Men be part of the MCU? Let us know.
