Now that Fox is part of Disney, the X-Men will eventually be joining the Marvel Studios family for future movies. Kevin Feige sounded excited about the X-Men coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although there’s no set timeline for when that will happen.
For now, the current X-Men film franchise is ending with Dark Phoenix this summer, not quite two months after the premiere of the MCU’s Avengers: Endgame. One of those Endgame stars is Karen Gillan, who said before Avengers 4 opened that her Nebula would be someone fans would root for.
Karen Gillan was asked which X-Men character she would most like to see join the MCU, and her answer came immediately:
Hey, from her perspective, the priority is having someone who can empathize with that awful blue makeup experience! (Cast David Cross too, so he can blue himself like Tobias on Arrested Development.)
