While the Fox/Disney merger is officially in the books, it doesn't look like the X-Men will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe anytime soon.
In a new interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige indicated that Marvel's Merry Mutants weren't part of the studio's post-Avengers: Endgame five-year plan.
"It's all just beginning and the five-year plan that we've been working on, we were working on before any of that was set." Feige said in an interview with io9. "So really it's much more, for us, less about specifics of when and where [The X-Men will appear] right now and more just the comfort factor and how nice it is that they're home. That they're all back. But it will be a very long time."

While Avengers: Endgame will bring Phase Three of the MCU to a close, the next phase is set to kick off later this year with Spider-Man: Far From Home.
It's still not clear what Marvel and Disney's plans for the X-Men or the Fantastic Four are. However, it's worth noting that Disney will oversee the release of the last two 20th Century Fox-produced X-films, Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants, which will still be released under the Fox banner this summer.
Marvel Studios' next picture will be Avengers: Endgame. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives on April 26.
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters and Jessica Chastain. The film is scheduled to be released on June 7.
