Recasting The X-Men For The MCU


Marvel will need a new X-Men cast if the mutant superhero team is indeed incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Walt Disney Company is currently in the process of acquiring 20th Century Fox – a sale that should complete in 2019, barring any injunction from federal regulators – which will give Marvel Entertainment the movie rights to both the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. That means both teams will eventually join the MCU, but not until 2021 at the earliest.

I wish but unfortunately the original cast while the best, is too old for franchising and this will not resonate well to the younger generation of movie goers, consequently, share holders.

I dont see what choice they have but to recast the lot. First Class was set in '63. Dark Phoenix set in '93 yet barely aged at all. No doubt the years they were set in is another stupid Bryan Singer decision. '63 i can understand, but to have a 10 year gap between each movie is retarded.

You could say the Infinity Gaunlet could mess up the timelines and bring them in but that would just create more problems with continuity and doubt Marvel would want to try bring most of Fox/Singer shite into the MCU. Besides, it will be many years before we even get a sniff of the Xmen in the MCU.
