James McAvoy Is Not Sure That The X-MEN Would Be A Good Fit For The Marvel Cinematic Universe

It's only a matter of time before we see The X-Men characters introduced to The MCU, but Glass star James McAvoy, who also happens to play Professor X, is not sure it'd be a particularly smooth transition.

Now that Disney has secured the rights to 20th Century Fox's stable of Marvel characters, it's all-but certain that we will see The X-Men cross paths with The Avengers at some point in the future - but one star of the current franchise is not convinced the mutant heroes would be a good fit for The MCU.

While speaking to Yahoo! about his new movie Glass, James McAvoy was asked about a potential crossover, and the actor explained why he feels bringing those universes together may not necessarily work.


“I don’t know if the X-Men could go into the Marvel universe, I’m not sure. Maybe they could? But I think what’s different about the Avengers universe anyway is you’ve only got a couple of superheroes in the world. There’s a good amount, but there’s like a couple of football teams’ worth, you know what I mean? Whereas in the X-Men world you’re potentially saying there are hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of [superheroes] and the social implication of that is different.”

Of course, Marvel has been making it work for a long time in the comics, but McAvoy does raise some interesting and valid points about the MCU. We've gone 10 years without any acknowledgment of mutants even existing, so it might be a difficult sell if and when The X-Men do show up and begin mixing it up with Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

That said, if anyone can figure out a satisfactory explanation, it's Kevin Feige and co.!
