The Marvel has done an absolutely fantastic job portraying our favorite Avengers over these last 8 years, and has also done a great job recreating fan-favorites such as Spider-Man and Daredevil. But what about the X-Men? Fox gave them a trilogy (give or take a few...) of failures now a decade ago believe it or not, but much more recently, First Class, Days of Future Past, Deadpool, and Apocalypse have done amazing.
Now picture this: The Avengers and The X-Men join forces in a two part series... Infinity War. It's every fans dream to see this team-up on screen in their lifetime, and many people think that with recent Marvel and Fox meetups, this could possibly happen as soon as Infinity War. Yet sadly, that is almost 100% IMpossible. Let's go over the obvious reasons.
Too Many Characters
There are a whopping total of 67 different characters being considered for Infinity War which most likely are just the entire cast of Avengers we'll have by then, and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Plus Thanos and his gang of baddies. So there is absolutely no room for a whole team of X-Men to have any screen time, let alone anybody else at that point in time. Besides, the two teams would have had to of been mentioned in each other's movies a few times by now right? But I have an idea who they might be able two squeeze in we'll talk about later.
The X-Men have just been recast and personally, I love the new faces. So if the X-Men were to be brought over, they would have to keep this brand new cast or else everybody would be extremely confused and the X-Men timeline would be hopeless once again.
And I doubt Marvel would want to squeeze in that Dark Phoenix/Shi'ar movie we're bound to get in the coming years.
Too Complicated to Explain on Screen
The X-Men suddenly appearing in the same movie as the Avengers all of a sudden would be terribly hard to explain in two movies all focusing on the Infinity Stones and Thanos. To be brutally honest, we won't see The X-Men join the Avengers at all, not in Infinity War, Phase 4, or even later unless they get rebooted again and I doubt Deadpool would be to happy about that.
But speaking of reboots, one team could easily join the Avengers by Phase 4.
The Fantastic 4!
The Fantastic 4 have been done dirty ever since their 1st movie screen appearance. So if we could get them back over to Marvel Studios to get a Spider-Man treatment we'd be set! I doubt they'd be able to be fit into Infinity War, but The Inhumans being cancelled in Phase 4 at the moment gives us some hope! I'd love to see how Marvel does an entire PHASE based on the Fantasitc Four. Just kidding, the Avengers will still exist and so will the GotG, but 3 teams in the MCU would be neatly executed. So? What do you think? Does this Fox theory make sense? Let me know!
