Wolverine in the MCU

Any day now, we’re going to find out if the Disney-Fox deal will actually happen, possibly resulting in Disney buying a large chunk of Fox. When and if that deal goes through, there’s going to be a lot of questions about all kinds of moving parts, but all anyone on the internet seems to really care about is the prospect of Fox’s Marvel properties finally interacting with Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, there’s one Fox/Marvel player who says to count him out of the whole thing: Hugh Jackman. Jackman recently revealed that even if the Disney-Fox deal goes through and creates the opportunity to see Wolverine in the MCU, his time as the character is still over.

X-Men in the MCU

As rumors abound about Disney buying Fox, there’s one question on everyone’s mind: how many people are going to get laid off due to this deal?

Also: does this mean that Fox’s Marvel properties will find their way into the MCU? Fox owns the rights to the X-Men, a fact that no doubt sticks in the craw of many a MCU purist. If this deal happens, would the X-Men be able to be part of the MCU? Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige certainly hopes so. Below, Feige reveals how eager he is to have the X-Men in the MCU.

mcu future

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is promising something that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never really had before: a finale.

From the outside, the MCU’s future may seem uncertain, as the comic book movie studio keeps hidden the slate of superhero films that will hit theaters after the climactic Avengers 4. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any superhero movies to follow up the Avengers sequel — far from it. Instead, the MCU will look vastly different after Avengers 4, which Feige promises will be the “finale” of the current era of the MCU and the beginning of a whole new, possibly cosmic, era of films.

Hulk movie

Stop trying to ask Kevin Feige when a solo Hulk movie is going to happen. It’s not going to happen.

But it’s for reasons beyond the fact that the green-skinned monster’s last solo outing, The Incredible Hulk, did lackluster numbers at the box office, that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s slate is packed for the next 15 years, or that Feige is probably just annoyed people keep pestering him about it. It’s a deeper issue that has to do with the Hulk’s confusing movie rights between Marvel Studios and Universal.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 release date

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is building up to something big with the climactic Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, and it’s up to the films following it to pick up the pieces. One of those films is James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy 3 which, in addition to being a sequel to two of the most beloved Marvel movies, is reportedly supposed to launch a new cosmic phase of the MCU.

However, the MCU has so many moving pieces that it’s hard to predict what movies will be released when after the next two Avengers films. But Gunn has a hint for fans concerning when Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will hit theaters.

star wars and marvel moving to Disney streaming

guardians of the galaxy vol 3

There’s no question that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, but it won’t be until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits our theaters sometime in 2020 that the MCU will be forever changed.

Director James Gunn has hinted that the third film in his Guardians of the Galaxy series will kick off the cosmic universe in the MCU, expanding the films that follow will go beyond just battling aliens on Earth. But this won’t just be a short stint on the other side of the galaxy — the cosmic universe may take up the next 10 to 20 years of the MCU. That’s the equivalent of all first three “Phases” of the MCU!

marvel cosmic universe

Guardians of the Galaxy was a universe apart from the rest of the Marvel movies. While the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were subject to the control of the #ItsAllConnected mantra, with tons of world-building and cameos implemented into the separate films, Guardians of the Galaxy had the freedom to be a wholly separate story unto itself.

But as the MCU expands, so does Guardians of the Galaxy‘s role in it. The third film in the Guardians of the Galaxy series, helmed again by director James Gunn, will play a pivotal role in introducing the Marvel cosmic universe. But Gunn assures that although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the first in this cosmic era, every film that follows it won’t follow the Guardians template.

captain marvel movie 1

Concept art of Captain Marvel shown at San Diego Comic Con proved that the finished film was still a long ways away. While fans on the internet had to make do with grainy snaps of concept art shown by Marvel Studios at the convention, it seemed that we would have to wait a few more years before we could get a real peek at Brie Larson as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel.

But artist Andy Park has posted a less-grainy concept picture of Larson in costume as Danvers, this time where we can see the full length of the costume when it’s not concealed by attacking Skrulls.
