Marvel leak says Mutants are coming to the MCU sooner than we thought

If this is Marvel’s plan, it’s pretty amazing.

Originally Published: 

We know the X-Men are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe eventually, but we haven’t heard anything official since Comic-Con 2019.


But according to a recent leak, the first Mutant could show up in the MCU before the end of 2021.

The report comes from Twitter user @mainmiddleman, who previously leaked a pretty big spoiler from Marvel’s WandaVision ahead of time.

@mainmiddleman claims Marvel is working on a Mutants movie that will focus on Professor Charles Xavier and Dr. Moira MacTaggert. They’ll face off against the Brotherhood of Mutants (Magneto, Mystique, Sabertooth, Toad, Pyro, the Blob, etc).

The same leaker reveals that the MCU’s initial X-Men lineup will resemble the first-class comics, which means we’ll likely see Angel, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Iceman, and Beast. However, it’s unclear if that team will show up in this first Marvel movie.

Before then, we could see some Mutants show up in the MCU. Allegedly, Iron Man’s decision to reveal his true identity back in Iron Man will be the main motivation for Mutants to reveal themselves.

Meanwhile, the Blip could turn humanity against those Mutants — suggesting Thanos may have activated the X-gene...

Is any of this true?

For now, we’d treat all these X-Men rumors with a grain of salt, even if this particular leaker does have a decent track record. Still, with Falcon and the Winter Soldier headed to at least one Mutant-related location, it does seem the X-Men could be coming to the MCU very soon...
