Want to hear a bit of news that is complete speculation but also very exciting?
Ok, so Marvel.com have put up a post featuring their biggest stars from SDCC – it includes Captain Marvel, Dr Strange, Mantic (from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2), Ego (Starlord’s dad… probably), Luke Cage (coming to Netflix), Ghost Rider (Set for Agents of SHIELD) and right in the middle… Legion.
Well, here’s the thing, Legion is actually an X-Men TV show, which Marvel co-produced with FOX. It stars Dan Stevens and tells the story of Professor X’s son.
Which to us means it’s bound to be a FOX show. Yet, Marvel have clearly said it’s part of the MCU.
Interestingly, at SDCC Scott Derrickson, the director of Doctor Strange, did also say that Doctor Strange will begin the “Marvel Cinematic Multiverse”.
What does this mean? Well, to us it looks like maybe, just maybe, X-Men and the MCU are, as is oft rumoured, finally becoming one body. Even if they do go down the DC Route of having many universes.
But we doubt it, we reckon this could be the start of us finally seeing The X-Men and The Avengers meeting on the big screen. Now, wouldn’t that be something indeed…
