Ever since Disney completed its merger with 20th Century Fox, Marvel fans have been wondering when the Mickey Mouse House might introduce the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Sure, Disney might not be ready to bring the X-Men back to the big screen just yet after seeing X-Men: Dark Phoenix lose so much money at the box office, but fans continue to hope that the Mickey Mouse House might make a little room for the mutants.
One of the best ways to remind fans that the X-Men is set to be part of the MCU is to bring X-men: The Animated Series to Disney+.
It isn’t that difficult. Disney now owns the rights to Fox’s various X-Men films and series. Adding X-Men: The Animated Series to the Mickey Mouse House’s upcoming streaming site would help satiate the clamor for the mutants' appearance in the MCU. Not only would it keep fans busy, but it would also help raise awareness for the X-Men brand while Marvel prepares to officially introduce the mutants.
We all know that it’s going to take a while before the mutants are integrated into the franchise. Marvel already has Phase 4 of the MCU mapped out, and it doesn’t seem like there’s any room for the mutants yet. Maybe Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness could help set up the mutant’s introduction, but even then, we can’t be entirely sure that Marvel’s ready to introduce the X-Men just yet seeing how difficult it would be to organically integrate the characters into the MCU’s current timeline.
