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?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
