Not wanting to let the dust settle after Captain America: Civil War, three of the film’s biggest stars in Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie have declared that they want to see the X-Men make the jump over to the MCU. And we fully support them!

At Wizard World Philadelphia (courtesy of when quizzed during a Q&A about which characters they would want to see make the jump into their world, the three seemed pretty united in getting the mutants on board.

“Looks like it’s time to get back some of those X-Men,” said Stan, before singling in on someone in particular; “Mystique. We need that Mystique.”

Evans added “I’d love to work with Fassbender because he’s Fassbender. Him and McAvoy, one of those guys would be great to work with.” We can only imagine how phenomenal it would be to see the X-Men appear alongside Cap, Iron Man, the recently reunited Spidey and everyone else, but it would be truly special to have Fassbender’s Magneto on board; he has constantly been a highlight of the latest X-trilogy.

Mackie was way more to the point with his answer, simply saying “Halle Berry” over and over again. It’s unconfirmed whether he means he wants Storm in the MCU, or if he just really fancies Halle Berry. More on that as we get it.

What do you think, now that Spider-Man is back home, and reports that we could see Namor in the near future, what are the chances of Fox giving up the X-Men to join the MCU?

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
