Ever since the rights were bought back in 2019, Marvel fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the X-Men into the MCU. Although information is sparse, lots of rumours have trickled in suggesting how Marvel might being to integrate some of the mutants into the already existing universe. A new report has hinted at the arrival of one particular fan-favourite mutant: Wolverine.
According to sources at We Got This Covered, Wolverine is due to take up a large role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Alongside Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, he is very much going to have a leading presence. And now we may know in which movie he will be introduced or, at the very least, teased: Black Panther 2.
It seems Wolverine already has some kind of connection to the African country of Wakanda. Wolverine’s claws and, in fact, his whole body is lined with the metal Adamantium. Adamantium is associated with the metal Vibranium, which is of abundance in Wakanda. It is how the Wakandans are such a wealthy nation and have such advanced tech.

One theory regarding Wolverine’s introduction has him meeting with Shuri (Letitia Wright). Shuri is T’Challa’s sister and is the scientist behind the Black Panther suit and his tech. It could be that Wolverine is attempting to unearth his origins and his search brings him to Shuri. She would be a good character to explain the scientific process behind his creation.
Although it seems unlikely he would play a huge part in the film, Wolverine’s introduction could simply be a post-credits tease. We may not even have somebody cast in the role. A husky voice and the iconic claws appearing might be enough of a tease if Marvel simply haven’t got time to get around to finding someone for the role yet.

Either way, it’s exciting times. The X-Men are well on their way to joining the MCU and it’s guaranteed they will have an integral role over the next few years.
Black Panther 2 is scheduled to arrives in cinemas on May 6th 2022.
