When Kevin Feige announced the initial MCU Phase 4 titles in late July 2019, he ended the Comic-Con panel by saying that he didn’t even have time to talk about mutants. That was hot on the heels of Disney’s Fox acquisition that gave Marvel the rights to X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four. More than two years later, Feige still didn’t find time to talk about the MCU’s X-Men. But Doctor Strange 2 might tell us everything we need to know, potentially solving the MCU’s big problem with the mutants from X-Men.
Already, there have been many rumors teasing X-Men cameos. Multiverse of Madness, and that’s quite understandable. It is believed that everything and even the kitchen sink will be in this sequel. But there’s a rather crazy Doctor Strange 2There is a plot rumor that the MCU has found that suggests a brilliant way to get its mutants.
We will explain how before we continue. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might bring the X-Men to the MCU, we’ll have to warn you that You might find some spoilers below..
The MCU’s mutants problem
Marvel wanted the MCU’s mutants to be present as far back in the original. Iron Man. A deleted scene with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). The former would have mentioned the mutants. Fox was making mutant films back then. In the world of superhero movies, the MCU was meaningless at that time.
Some fifteen years later, the MCU is bigger than Fox’s X-Men franchise ever was. Disney also owns Fox properties so that it can use mutants in films like Doctor Strange 2Other MCU projects. However, it is not easy to incorporate the X-Men within the MCU timeline.
Marvel must find a way for the mutants to be included in the story. We haven’t had any X-Men in the MCU so far, even though mutants should populate the universe by now.
Marvel doesn’t have to stick to the comic books. Marvel has the option to create alternate origin stories that feature all mutants in the MCU. Marvel could use MCU events such as the Infinity Stone snaps, which we assumed was always true Infinity War EndgameThis is how mutants arrived. The same goes for the failure to emerge in EternalsThis could be the event that triggers mutants’ X gene.
Then there’s the multiverse, which is where Doctor Strange 2Here it is. That’s another easy way that mutants could land in the MCU.
Now, we have some supposed plot leaks that this is exactly how it’ll happen.
Rumours of Doctor Strange 2Mutants
Rumours dating back as far as early 2020 suggested that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessMany mutant cameos will be featured. The list included the most obvious choices: Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool, and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. However, new claims have been made last year that Professor X would be appearing in the multiverse as the leader for the Illuminati. Patrick Stewart will allegedly play Charles Xavier. Other rumors suggest that James McAvoy could also play the younger Charles.
According to recent reports, Charles will be joined in the fight against Wanda by a number of X-Men who hail from Fox Universe (Elizabeth Olsen). Wanda is, in fact, a mutant as depicted in comics. She’s the daughter of Magneto.
A trusted insider told us that Wanda would do something at the end of the day. Doctor Strange 2This brings the mutants to MCU. We have no idea what, but the speculation is that it’ll involve a powerful spell of some kind.
Wanda uses a “No More Mutants”spell to eliminate mutants from comics. Marvel can adapt or reverse the iconic event to meet its MCU demands.
Wild animals Doctor Strange 2The plot twist
This brings us to the next Doctor Strange 2There are plot leaks which give us an absurd explanation for the MCU’s inclusion of mutants.
A Twitter user goes by the name Moth CultureThe claim that the “No More Mutants”The MCU already had a spell. Wanda removed all X-Men characters from the timeline to stop Wanda reuniting her with her children in a different reality.
As a consequence, Doctor Strange 2The movie ends with Wanda undoing all that happened. The mutants were then ReturnTo the MCU. The Fox movies will therefore be remade to work in the MCU.
Deadpool, unlike Wolverine, might also be the mutant that remembers the past.
This may sound insane, but it is possible. We’ll explain it all in the future.
Meanwhile, we’ll have to wait for more Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness plot spoilers to see whether Wanda’s “No More Mutants” spell might indeed be part of the sequel and whether she’ll bring the mutants to the MCU.
