Ever since the first rumors started, Marvel fans have been ecstatic about the Disney and 20th Century Fox deal. Disney as we know is the company that owns Marvel Studios as well as Lucasfilm, among others. Recently, they have acquired the rights to the rest of the Marvel characters previously in Fox’s ownership, including the X-Men. The Disney/Fox deal finally brought the X-Men franchise, Deadpool and the Fantastic Four back into Marvel’s hands. Meaning, the “Avengers vs. X-Men” movie you always dreamed of could happen. And after all these years, the Fantastic Four could get a good movie adaptation. Wolverine and Hulk could face off in an epic battle of raw power and Deadpool could drive Steve Rogers nuts with his foul language. But most importantly, the X-Men could possibly have a chance to appear in the second Infinity War movie.
We still don’t know how (or even if) the X-Men will join the MCU, but we’re extremely hyped for the X-Men’s homecoming. We are certain that every Marvel fan out there can’t wait to see how Marvel will introduce the X-Men into the MCU, but until that happens all we can do is enjoy these 15 amazing Photoshop edits of X-Men characters in the MCU.
15. MAGNETO VS. IRON MAN
Back in 2012, Marvel ran a six-issue mini-series with a rotating cast of teams. Dubbed by Marvel as the “fight book” this tie-in to the superhero mash-up, Avengers vs. X-Men, puts the focus on raw combat and features a fight between Magneto and Iron Man. In an insane battle, Iron Man gains the upper hand by siphoning magnetic energy from Jupiter and Magneto counters his attack by pulling in other interstellar objects. Yes. That’s how powerful these two are.
Now imagine if you could see a battle of these proportions on the big screen. Tobias Draper, an artist from the United States, created this amazing poster for a possible Avengers vs. X-Men showdown, a movie we thought would never be possible. Well, things are looking up now.
14. KING AND QUEEN OF WAKANDA
Black Panther is set to hit the theaters in February 2018 and we couldn’t be more excited about T’Challa’s first solo adventure. Black Panther made quite the impression with his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War. The promotional posters and the trailers for the Black Panther movie have the fans extremely hyped. If you’ve been doing some research on the King of Wakanda in preparation for his upcoming film, you must have come across the fact that he was once married to Storm.
Storm was the Queen of Wakanda and the most influential mutant in the world. However, Storm won’t be making an appearance in the Black Panther movie, because Disney has just now acquired the rights to the X-Men. Still, ArkhamNatic‘s amazing poster shows us what we could have once the X-Men join the MCU.
13. WOLVERINE VS. HULK
Due to the nature of their powers Wolverine and Hulk make perfect sparring partners. The Hulk is way too strong to go around using just anyone as a punching bag. On the other hand, Wolverine’s claws would be lethal for most, but not the Hulk. And since they can beat the crap out of each other without killing one another, Wolverine and Hulk have engaged in some pretty brutal showdowns over the years.
Not to mention that both of these heroes have somewhat of a temper and can easily be provoked into a fight. Up until now they have been kept at safe distance on the big screen, one being part of Fox’s X-Men franchise and the other part of the MCU. However, now that the X-Men are finally back home, we might get a chance to see a fight between Wolverine and the Hulk.
12. IT AIN’T EASY BEING RED
Marvel’s Red Team consisting of three New Yorkers — Spider-Man, Daredevil and Deadpool — is a common theme of awesome fan art. However, although Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Charlie Cox’s Daredevil are both in the MCU and apparently in the same city, they still haven’t crossed paths. Deadpool, on the other hand, is an entirely different story given that he used to belong to 20th Century Fox.
But when has a small detail such as intellectual property rights stood in the way of talented artists? Yet another awesome edit by GOXIII brings together two sulking heroes. Both Spidey and Deadpool look quite miserable all hunched down, it’s a good thing they have each other during these difficult times. Too bad Daredevil couldn’t join them, since he’s been known to brood quite often.
11. CAPTAIN AMERICA VS. THE SENTINELS
While bringing the X-Men into the MCU sounds awesome at first, once you think about the implications this move could possibly have you start to realize that it could do more harm than good. Fans are already discussing the inexplicable absence of Marvel’s Netflix heroes from the larger MCU stage. Thanos invades the Earth, the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy come together to stop him, yet the Defenders are nowhere to be found. Are we to believe that defending small portions of New York is best these heroes can do?
But if Marvel is having trouble incorporating its Netflixverse into the MCU or explaining its absence, how will they possibly explain the fact that the Avengers and the X-Men have been around for years and haven’t once run into each other? Alex Cerrato thinks it would be cool to see Captain America fighting the Sentinels and we agree.
10. INFINITY WAR
The Avengers: Infinity War trailer is fresh out of the oven and we couldn’t be me more excited about it. The third Avengers movie is jam-packed with heroes, old and new ones. While we have yet to see Hawkeye, Ant-Man, The Wasp and Valkyrie, our hopes are high that they will appear in the movie. Because, can we really have too many heroes in one place? Heck no, the more the merrier. Which is why we’d be absolutely thrilled if another Marvel superhero team joins the fight in the Infinity War sequel.
This image shows us just how amazing the Avengers and X-Men team-up could be. Fighting Thanos is no easy feat and even the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes could use some help. A superpowered group of individuals such as the X-Men would no doubt be of great help.
9. AVENGERS VS. X-MEN
Heroes fighting heroes seems to be a popular concept recently. It started with Captain America: Civil War with Iron Man and Captain America leading teams in battle against each other. The DCEU followed suit and released Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. So, why not an Avengers vs. X-Men movie next? Now that Disney’s and 20th Century Fox have finally reached an agreement, we could see the X-Men in the MCU very soon.
Someone out there must be incredibly hyped about the possibility of an Avengers vs. X-Men movie that they decided to recreate the cover of the first issue of the Marvel mini comic book series Avengers vs. X-Men. Using the characters from the MCU and X-Men franchise, this artist made the movie poster we’d all love to see for real.
8. DEADPOOL ON TEAM CAP
When Captain America: Civil War rolled out, many were wondering which side of the argument would Deadpool be on. Known for being an amoral jerk who doesn’t give a rat’s bottom about anyone, had Wade Wilson had the opportunity to participate in Civil War he’d probably run rampage without a care in the world.
In the comics, Deadpool wasn’t on either side of the issue, but officially he was in favor of the Registration Act. Deadpool’s unique skillset made him the perfect asset for the government to hunt down powered individuals. However, the artist known as GOXIII edited a screenshot from the epic Civil War fight and put Deadpool alongside Captain America. It is doubtful that the Cap could offer Deadpool more money than Stark, so is it possible that the amoral jerk somehow grew a conscience?
7. HULK VS. ILLUMINATI
One of the best Hulk storylines, “Planet Hulk”, was partially adapted on the big screen in the MCU’s latest movie Thor: Ragnarok. In the comics, the “Planet Hulk” storyline starts off with the Illuminati tricking Hulk into going to space because they consider him to be too dangerous. At the end of Planet Hulk, Hulk returns to Earth demanding answers and the event known as “World War Hulk” begins.
In case you’re not familiar with the Illuminati, here’s the rundown. They were a secret organization consisting of Mister Fantastic, Iron Man, Professor X, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt and Namor. David Andrade, an artist from Mexico, created this amazing edit of Hulk fighting the Illuminati, among which is James McAvoy’s Professor X from Fox’s X-Men franchise.
6. THE MCU WE WANT
If you’re a Marvel fan and want a cool wallpaper for your computer here’s an image you can use. The entire MCU and hopefully the-soon-to-be MCU all in one awesome picture is definitely a sight for sore eyes. The level of detail on this image is absolutely stunning. Can’t see Ant-Man? Take a closer look at Hawkeye’s arrow. Wondering where Coulson is? Zoom in on Hulk’s left shoulder.
The amazing artist known as Timetravel6000v2 is known for creating mind-blowing edits, but this one definitely takes the cake. He managed to bring together all of our favorite heroes — the Avengers, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Defenders and many more — all in one awesome picture. We probably speak for everyone when we say that this is the MCU we want.
5. AVENGERS: AGE OF DEADPOOL
Avengers: Age of Ultron may not have been the spectacle we expected it to be, but fear not. Straight from the studio that brought you movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Thor: Ragnarok comes a movie that will blow your mind like nothing that come before it, “Avengers: Age of Deadpool”. Witness your favorite heroes face off against a deranged Merc with a Mouth in a battle of grand proportions.
Sadly, this is just GOXIII’s fan-edit of an Avengers poster, but wouldn’t it be cool if it were real? Bringing Deadpool into the MCU, in any capacity, would most certainly provide lots of entertainment. We could easily see Wade Wilson teaming up with either the heroes or the villains.
4. EXPECTING SOMEONE ELSE?
We got to see a bunch of characters in the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer. Our heroes have formed smaller groups with some very interesting combos such as Tony Stark and Doctor Strange, as well as Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy. However, here’s a team-up none of us expected to see but we’d all be down for it if it ever happened.
The Cap, Iron Man and Sorcerer Supreme are seemingly welcoming a new recruit and it’s Wolverine. The Turkish artist known as Erathrim created an awesome poster for the upcoming Infinity War movie with Wolverine at its center. What may have been just wishful thinking not so long ago, can now actually come true. Perhaps this could be one of the promo posters for the Infinity War sequel.
3. WAR BUDDIES
Both Wolverine and Captain America are super-soldiers and they are both old enough to have fought in the Second World War. Captain America: The First Avenger, which tells the Cap’s origin story, is set during the Second World War at which time Steve Rogers was injected with the Super Soldier Serum and became Captain America. Wolverine also fought in the Second World War, however, due to the two characters being in separate movie universes their paths never intertwined.
In the comics, these two have crossed paths at some point during the Second World War. The amazing artist GOXIII edited this scene from X-Men Origins: Wolverine and made our dreams come true with a Captain America and Wolverine World War II team-up. Now, this is a movie the fans would pay good money to see.
2. MAGNETO FAMILY REUNION
While the prospect of merging the MCU with the X-Men does sound like a dream come true, this is where things get a bit complicated. Currently, Disney doesn’t have the rights to mutants, however they introduced the mutant siblings Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (who happen to be Magneto’s children) in Age of Ultron, without referring to them as such. However, X-Men: Days of Future Past also featured Quicksilver, but played by a different actor and set in a different time period.
Obviously, there are many ways around this problem and if X-Men and Avengers do come together in a movie we trust Marvel will know what to do with the characters. This edit by mayfuite gives us an idea about what the Magneto family might look like in the MCU.
1. UNITED WE STAND
While the most well-known X-Men and Avengers crossover is the “Avengers vs. X-Men” event, these two amazing superhero groups have met on other occasions too. What’s more, they’ve also been known to work together instead of fighting each other. In summer of 1996, Avengers and X-Men came together to stop Onslaught. So, why couldn’t these heroes unite once again, but this time on the big screen.
An artist who goes by ArkhamNatic on DeviantArt created this cover poster for a possible Avengers and X-Men team-up movie. The poster is based on the X-Men: Days of Future Past cover with MCU characters edited in. Titled “United”, this movie cover sure promises an interesting film. It would be fun to see the relationship between Deadpool and Captain America. Steve would constantly have to warn Deadpool about his language.
