AVENGERS 4 Director Weighs In On The Arrival Of Fox Characters In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Avengers: Infinity War director Joe Russo talks about the introduction of Fantastic Four and X-Men characters into the MCU, and how he believes Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will handle that...

While we all wait patiently (or not) for the first Avengers 4 trailer, it's important to remember that we're now probably just eighteen months away from finally seeing characters from the world of the X-Men and Fantastic Four arrive in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

It's been a long time coming and while it's too early to say how Marvel Studios will go about introducing these heroes and villains, bringing in mutants and Marvel's First Family is bound to shake things up.

Now, Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo has shared his thoughts on the matter and has some predictions for how Kevin Feige plans to handle their introductions.



"It could be a little time, with the integration of Fox and all the Fox characters," Russo explained. "I haven’t talked to [Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige] directly about it, so I don’t know what his plans are. But my guess would be they’re gonna integrate some of the other characters and take their time doing that."

It would certainly be interesting to see Marvel slowly introduce these characters rather than just rebooting the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises, but common sense says those movies will soon follow as there's no way the likes of Wolverine and Galactus are sitting on the shelf for long.
