X-Men in Marvel Cinematic Universe: Is it really happening?

They were in a skirmish in the comic books many-a-times — recently, in 2012’s Avengers vs. X-Men mini-series — but should movie audiences expect to see their favorite superheroes to cross the platforms in a movie?

Fans are surmising that their mutant heroes might cross-roads with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe after the recent deal with Sony that let Spider-Man cross studios and enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War movie.

When the directors of last two Captain America films who are also currently working on Avengers 3,  Ruso brothers- Joe and Anthony Russo were asked if there is a possibility of X-Men joining the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Joe Russo said: “As far as we know, right now there isn’t talk regarding the X-Men.

I don’t know if behind-the-scenes there were conversations or if there are conversations happening but we certainly haven’t heard of any.

“Sony and Marvel had a relationship through Kevin [Feige] and Amy [Pascal] and through us and Amy.”

He added: “That’s really how Spider-Man came about. It requires a certain alchemy and a very special situation for studios to share properties.”

But we still found a ray of hope as Russo made sure to cushion his bets slightly, saying, “I don’t know if behind-the-scenes there were conversations or if there are conversations happening but we certainly haven’t heard of any.”

Now it’s high time for Bryan Singer and the people over at Fox to become comrades with the Russos.

While fans will find this news to be disappointing, it doesn’t mean that X-Men won’t turn up later – as we all know, Marvel is famous for its secrecy.Fox must be looking ahead to reboot the X-Men franchise after Hugh Jackman’s last stint in Wolverine 3 and a deal with Disney looks like the way forward. Also in the pipeline at Fox is Deadpool 2, Gambit, New Mutants and X-Force.
