Marvel Leak Reveals How X-Men and Fantastic Four Will Be Introduced to the MCU

It's been a while since Disney's completed its acquisition of 20th Century Fox and yet the House of Mouse has still to announce its plans to bring the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and all of Fox's mutant heroes into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While Marvel Studios has yet to reveal its plans for Fox's mutant characters, a reliable source of information claims to have new information regarding the studio's casting decisions.

Taking to Twitter, Marvel insider Roger Wardell reveals the studio's plans for the X-Men and for the Fantastic Four in the MCU. According to the leaker, the mutant heroes are going to be introduced as part of the Marvel multiverse – possibly in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

"MCU's Fantastic Four and X-Men will be primarily based on their Earth-1610 counterparts," Wardwell wrote on Twitter.

While we remind fans to take the report with a grain of salt, we wouldn't be entirely surprised if Marvel really does introduce the X-Men and the Fantastic Four by bringing them in through the Marvel Multiverse. Using the multiverse would conveniently explain the mutants' absence during all of the major events of the MCU.

That's not all, of course.

Wardell also claims that A Quiet Place director/actor John Krasinski is being eyed for a lead role in the MCU. While we've yet to confirm what that role might be, the long-standing rumor is that Krasinski is being eyed to play Reed Richards, the leader of the Fantastic Four.

Let's wait and see whether any of these rumors come to fruition.
