This is a topic that's near and dear to my heart. I have always wanted to see my favorite mutants on the big screen with my favorite Avengers and Spider-Man and everyone else. The childlike collector in me is excited for Wolverine's claws to meet Cap's shield like on that famous Mike Zeck cover. I want to see Storm and T'Challa meet for the first time. Or even catch the meeting of the mightiest minds in Marvel: Xavier, Beast, Reed Richards, Peter Parker, and Tony Stark. Sadly, it won't ever live up to my imagination (RIP Tony), but I have a lot of high hopes for the eventual inclusion of the Marvel mutants into the MCU. So, for today's Blog of X I am diving into a few possibilities that might allow the filmmakers to bridge the comic and the film worlds. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Also let me know how you would do it!
For me, I feel like there are three main ways in which the MCU could introduce mutants: They can CHANGE HISTORY in the MCU, they can BRING THEM FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE, or they can make it so mutants WERE ALWAYS HERE, we just didn't know it. Let's discuss them each of these options in greater detail.
