The directors of Avengers 4 are convinced that Deadpool and the X-Men will eventually join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With Disney successfully purchasing the rights to Fox’s film and television assets, Disney can now bring characters previously owned by Fox into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This includes characters from Fantastic Four, X-Men and Deadpool stories.
Insider reports that the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, Joe and Anthony Russo, were at Business Insider’s Ignition Conference, and were asked about the chances of those characters appearing in the MCU. “I’m sure of it,” Joe Russo replied. "I'm certain, with [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige, who also has been on an historic run in the business, that he is going to incorporate those characters under the large Marvel umbrella.”
The first trailer for Avengers 4 is expected to premiere sometime this week.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers 4 stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Brie Larson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Evangeline Lilly and Josh Brolin. The film arrives May 3, 2019.
