There's been a lot of talk within the comic book film fandom as to when exactly the mutants will make their much-awaited arrival to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and while Kevin Feige and company have kept mum about it, the current assumption right now is that it won't happen until Phase 5 at least. However, the recent trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness pretty much confirmed that a beloved X-Men actor will be crossing over to the billion-dollar franchise.
In case you're not aware yet, Patrick Stewart is rumored to be making his MCU debut to reprise his role as Professor X in the upcoming MCU flick. Stewart has since denied his involvement in the project but the trailer's subtle tease is a piece of evidence that is hard to ignore. Now, fans are wondering if Charles Xavier's cameo also means that we'll get to see Wolverine in the film.
Well, according to a scoop from The Illuminerdi's Joseph Deckelmeier, Doctor Strange 2 will indeed see an appearance by Logan himself but to those hoping for a Hugh Jackman cameo, we hate to burst your bubble but the said Wolverine who will show up in the film is not the Wolverine we all know and love. He didn't exactly go into detail about the nature of the character but it would be safe to assume that it might be the Logan canon to Earth-616.

With so much happening in Multiverse of Madness, it'll be interesting to see what kind of role Logan plays in the film and how it would affect the course of the MCU moving forward. One thing's for certain though, Marvel Studios is set to plant the seeds for the mutants' entry to the MCU and it's definitely going to cause a major shift in the franchise.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits cinemas on May 6, 2022.
