Again within the “golden age” of each the MCU and the “X-Males” franchise, the notion of a crossover felt thrilling. The MCU had steadily confirmed that it may convey all of its core heroes collectively right into a related universe. Though it now seems to be moderately quaint in comparison with the trendy MCU, 2012’s “The Avengers” was a giant deal when it was first launched. Marvel followers by no means anticipated to see a big-screen journey with Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and The Unbelievable Hulk that surpassed their expectations.
This was the identical time frame when the “X-Males” collection was additionally discovering its footing. After the disappointments of 2006’s “X-Males: The Final Stand” and 2009’s “X-Males Origins: Wolverine,” the franchise confirmed new indicators of life with 2011’s “X-Males: First Class.” Matthew Vaughn’s prequel movie proved that the “X-Males” saga had a future, and 2014’s “X-Males: Days of Future Previous” efficiently discovered a approach to unite each the youthful and older generations of “X-Males” characters. Presently, the chances appeared infinite. How cool would it not have been to see Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine,Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier, and Ian McKellen’s Magneto work together with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark, Chris Evans’ Captain America, and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor? It could be disappointing, now that these alternatives are dwindling. It seems that each Downey Jr. and Evans have left the MCU for good, and Jackman has stated that he’s not going to return to play Logan once more.
