A question that is always raised about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is when will the X-Men show up? The answer has always been whenever the lawyers say so.
Good news though! It seems as if that day is coming soon. Disney (who owns the film rights to the Avengers) and 21st Century Fox (who owns the film rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four) are discussing a merger and it looks like talks are nearly finished. If the deal goes through it is rumored that we will see the X-Men in Infinity War and certainly after that.
This is a very exciting time for superhero fans and already people have guesses as what this all means.
We can't help but wonder why this is happening now. The leading theory is that Disney is concerned about telling new stories after Infinity War and introducing the X-Men gives them new characters and storylines to explore.
It also explains why Marvel Studios President Kevin Fiege has been continually promising something new after phase three ends.
Fox acquired the film rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four in the 1990's. The Spider-Man film rights were also sold to Sony during this time, but we all know how that turned out. Now people are hoping Wolverine and friends make a similar entrance.
Personally, I'd like to see Scarlet Witch create all the Mutants at the end of Infinity War like a reverse House of M. If you don't know what means, then you will be in for a real treat.
