Marvel Phase 4 offers a line-up of movies that can serve as balanced platforms for the introduction of these heroes. With Professor X set to debut in Doctor Strange into the Multiverse of Madness. The X-men and Fantastic Four might make an entrance sooner than we know.
Marvel’s Fantastic Four Plans
Marvel President Kevin Feige, has been pretty tight-lipped about his Fox acquisitions. Movies like The New Mutants and The First Family set to air sometime next year. It isn’t certain at what point fans would get to see the X-men in the MCU.
However, a leak from Marvel Scooper Roger Wardell has sparked the rumour about X-Men coming to Earth 616 from an alternate universe. He also went on to reveal, the Office star, John Krasinski is set to be cast for a lead role. Another big casting decision he revealed is Breaking Bad star, Giancarlo Esposito.
Apparently, Krasinski is being cast to play Mr Fantastic, Richard Reed and the big surprise is his wife actor Emily Blunt could play Susan Storm. Variety reported the actors have been in talks with Marvel Studio about the roles for quite some time now.
Most definitely, Krasinski has been in talks with the Studio Execs about directing a Marvel film in the future. “I would love to do it,” he said while speaking to ComicBook in March. He further said, “I think to be a part of the Marvel world would be amazing. The fact that people would even consider me for that level of a part would be amazing. I genuinely have had no conversations or don’t know anything that’s happening with that. I’m awaiting Kevin’s announcements of what the hell’s happening with that as much as you are.”
Future of the X-Men in MCU
Giancarlo Esposito is another big addition to the upcoming X-men cast. The American actor stars on the raving TV show, Breaking Bad. Esposito who has couple of stellar including The Mazerunner, Esposito would be an exciting addition to the X-men team.
Previously played by actor Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender, Esposito will succeed Magneto’s mantle. Fox Studios’ last X-Men release the Dark Phoenix busted at the box office.
After the Disney Fox deal went through fans are excited to see their favourite characters once again. Another report suggests that Marvel Studio is planning a Weapon X Disney Plus series to introduce into the MCU.
Certain sources still claim that there are a couple of heavy names Marvel Studios is recruiting to make the X-men’s introduction a notable crossover. With the MCUs management hammering heavy on enforcing cast diversity, fans might just be in for a treat.
