X-MEN Reboot THE MUTANTS Reportedly In Development At Marvel Studios
We've been waiting a long time for some kind of update on Marvel Studios' plans for the X-Men, and a new report indicates that Kevin Feige is heading up a new feature titled The Mutants...
Fans have been curious about Marvel Studios' plans for the X-Men ever since Disney acquired the rights to the characters via the takeover of 20th Century Fox's assets back in 2019, and now we finally have some idea of what Kevin Feige and co. have in store for the uncanny heroes.
According to The Illuminerdi, Marvel is moving forward on a new feature titled The Mutants which will finally introduce the X-Men to the MCU. Details are few and far between, but Feige is said to be heading up the project as producer.
No word on any potential writers or directors, but we know Avengers: Endgame filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo are huge X-Men fans and have said on a few different occasions that they'd love to take a crack at the team if the opportunity should arise. Recently, the brothers revealed that are working on a new superhero project that they're very excited about.
Is there any chance? Pure speculation, of course, but you never know!
This is obviously a major story, and while the source has been spot on with their scoops on a regular basis, it's best not to get too excited until we hear from the trades as these things tend to be subject to change - especially in the earlier stages of development.
