MCU Rumor Reveals When X-Men Reboot Will Release
The Marvel Studios Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con was an MCU fan’s equivalent of Christmas Day. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige made some huge announcements about future phases of the MCU, revealed a few new titles and teasers, and dropped the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. What hasn’t been revealed or discussed, however, are the X-Men in the MCU.
Mutants returned to Marvel’s fold when Disney acquired 20th Century Fox in 2019. But even though a new animated movie X-Men 97 the series is in preparation and Dead Pool 3 is on the way, the Marvel faithful have been eagerly awaiting the MCU’s live-action take on Professor Xavier’s gifted youngsters.
Since Ms. MarvelThe Kamala Khan finale established that Kamala Khan is a mutant, and Comic-Con is usually where Feige reveals future plans for the MCU audiences have come to expect from Hall H X-Men news.
When this did not happen, many assumed that Feige had this information until D23. However, there may have been another reason at play and one that gives some idea of the MCU’s X-Men movie release date.
When will Marvel Studios’ X-Men movie be released?
According to journalist and former Naissance. Movies. Death. editor Devin Faraci, via Cinema Sangha the reason mutants weren’t announced at Marvel’s Hall H panel is because Marvel Studios can’t make their X-Men movie until at least 2025 due to “the contractual situation with the original Fox stuff:”
“Despite the introduction of mutants at the end of Ms. Marvel, there are no mutants in phase 5. I know why. I know why there are no mutants. I know why this is going to take time. There could be individual mutants, there could be other characters that show some interest. The reason is that the contract situation with the original Fox stuff is going to be in effect until 2025. So if they don’t want to use these actors, they have to wait for that contract to expire.
Whether this information is true remains to be seen. However, if that’s the case, it’s worth noting that Marvel Studios has apparently stayed within the parameters of the contract so far.
For example, Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was possible because he was portrayed by the original Fox franchise actor, and the same goes for Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool once Dead Pool 3 is released.
Ms. Marvel is not a breach of contract insofar as Iman Vellani is the first to star in his live action, as is Tenoch Huerta as Namor the Submarine, should Marvel choose to embrace his title as the first mutant of Marvel in black panther 2.
When asked if Marvel Studios would even be able to announce its D23 mutant-related projects and castings in September, Faraci acknowledged that Marvel had “like nine free places in phase 6” but no one is “I will see mutants up to phase 7:”
“If they’re going to have stuff coming out in 2025 at the end of the contract, then they’ll announce that. But I think they can’t actually go into production until the contract is up. So this isn’t even a release – it’s the same with Superman, so they’ll be in phase 7, so you won’t see any mutants until phase 7, there will be mutants that appear after the multiverse saga ends .
Does this explain why Ms. Marvel is a mutant?
If these contractual limitations are true, it will no doubt be a disappointment for fans anticipating news of an X-Men project. But that doesn’t mean Marvel audiences won’t see mutants at all.
After all, the MCU’s Phase 4 has already featured a cameo from Professor X and a semi-cameo from Evan Peters’ Quicksilver in Wanda Vision. And, since this is the multiverse saga, other familiar faces could easily reprise their roles, especially since Avengers: Secret Wars is a multiversal story.
Finally, as noted by Faraci, new mutants can also be introduced. In fact, this contractual issue may have contributed to the decision to make Ms. Marvel a mutant as opposed to an Inhuman.
The true test of this rumour? Marvel Studios’ D23 panel on September 10.
If Kevin Feige doesn’t announce an X-Men movie or any other X-Men related projects until 2025, it looks like X-Men fans will have to wait for the conclusion of the multiverse saga before a new Wolverine or Magneto comes along. make their MCU debut.
