Deadpool, X-Men and Fantastic Four WILL Join The Avengers In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
It's confirmed that Deadpool and the X-Men will be join the MCU. Here are all the details.
With Disney having officially completed its buyout of 20th Century Fox, the question on everyone's lips is just how this will affect the makeup of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And according to Disney boss Bob Iger, the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool will all be coming home to join the rest of their super-powered buddies…
"We have the opportunity to expand iconic franchises for new generations of fans just as we have done with Marvel and Star Wars," said Iger. "We're also looking forward to expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe to include X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool."
None of which should come as a surprise, given how long Disney have been trying to unify all the Marvel properties, but it's massively exciting nonetheless. An Avengers and Fantastic Four team-up? Deadpool meeting the Guardians? Dr. Doom versus Loki? Consider us well and truly sold.
