With the deal between Disney and Fox expected to conclude later this month, Marvel Studios will soon have the freedom to bring the X-Men into the MCU. The prospect of finally getting to see the mutants sharing the big screen with Earth’s mightiest heroes have got fans incredibly excited.

In fact, sources have claimed that an all-out X-Men vs Avengers vs movie is “on the cards.” Though there is currently no specific details on the nature of this battle, Marvel Studios will reportedly “begin building to it” once the merger is complete. This implies that the X-Men franchise will see a few more projects as stepping stones leading up to the big moment of crossover. This would make sense for the Avengers as well, since they can surely use a rest after two big hits in two consecutive years.

Could we be seeing an Avengers vs X-Men movie in the future?

In any case, the Disney/Fox deal isn’t even final yet, so Marvel’s plans could always change. It’s unlikely that we will see more about this until at least after Avengers: Endgame. Coming on April 26th, this film marks the ending of the current era. Moreover, it is also expected to serve as the conclusion to the stories of a few veteran heroes from Phase 1, so any new Avengers movies after that could possibly see a very different line-up compared to the current one.

The same holds true for the mutants. Kevin Feige appears to be intending to recast the entire roster of the X-Men universe, except one major figure who is still going strong: Deadpool. This begs the question: what’s to become of Deadpool’s co-stars? It seems like recasting Cable, Domino, Negasonic and the rest would be too soon at the moment, but at the same time, maintaining the current X-Men universe just because of the Deadpool films wouldn’t work either.

Only the future will tell what’s going to happen, but just as Avengers: Endgame is concluding the current phase of the MCU, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is expected to do the same for the X-Men when it airs on June 7 this year.
