Marvel Studios Is Including X-Men Characters:

Marvel Studios has finally been able to include the popular X-Men characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There has been no indication of when the characters will debut in the franchise or when Marvel Studios will produce a real X-Men picture, but it’s reasonable to assume that this incarnation of the X-Men will look quite different from what we saw from 20th Century Fox. The live-action X-Men are entering a new era, and veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg is excited to see what Marvel Studios has in store.

Kinberg spent years at Fox working on the X-Men series, which includes numerous incarnations of many famous characters. He even helmed Dark Phoenix, Fox’s final X-Men picture. With Kevin Feige now serving as the de facto X-Men producer, Sinberg spoke with CBR.com on the future of Marvel’s mutants. “But there’s also a part of me that’s really curious to see what they’ll do with it, to make it different if I’m not a part of it, or even if I am,” Kinberg said. “Not to be overly dramatic, but it’s a little like Shakespeare, where a million people have performed Hamlet.” There have been several intriguing interpretations of Hamlet. I started with the original X-Men cast, then moved on to the First Class cast, then put them together in a movie, then broke them up again, and did something completely different with Logan than we did with Wolverine and the X-Men mainstream series. So there are so many different tones and cast-wise options. ”

“I’m interested in watching what they do with the X-Men,” Kinberg said, alluding to Feige and Marvel Studios’ take on the franchise. “I’m not optimistic about what they’ll do. I know it’ll be cool since everything they produce is clever, smart, and well-thought-out. I honestly can’t wait as a comic book lover and a Marvel moviegoer. So, sure, I’d be willing to participate. If not, I’ll be first in line and ecstatic to see what they come up with.” When Disney purchased Fox, Marvel Studios acquired the rights to both the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, and both sets of characters are in the company’s long-term plans. The Fantastic Four will be the first to appear in the MCU, at least in terms of solo films, as Marvel has already confirmed an F4 feature from Spider-Man director Jon Watts.
