Kevin Feige Is Waiting On The Phone Call That Will Let Him Bring The X-MEN Into The MCU

Despite some potential complications due to Comcast, Disney is set to earn the rights to Fox's Marvel properties, and Kevin Feige is eager to get his hands on their collection of beloved Marvel characters.

Unless Comcast happens to offer a more appealing deal, it’s likely the merger between Fox and Disney will be completed, and Fox’s Marvel properties will fall under the Marvel Studios umbrella.

Yet, even if Fox doesn’t take Comcast up on its offer, fans will have to wait paitiently, as the regulatory process for the deal with Disney means we won’t be seeing Marvel Studios produce any X-Men or Fantastic Four films any time soon. However, it seems fans hoping to see the Fox properties join the Marvel Cinematic Universe aren't the only ones waiting for the deal to go through.

At the recent Produced by Conference, the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige discussed the future of the MCU, and revealed he is also waiting for the final word on the multi-billion dollar deal.

“I’m just sitting, waiting for a phone call to say yay or nay,” Kevin Feige explained, before saying, “But obviously it would be nice to have access to that entire library.”

In all, this isn’t a surprising response from the producer that routinely expresses his love for Marvel comics—and who once worked on a few of Fox’s Marvel films. But is his readiness a sign that he already has plans for the characters? Probably not, but we can be sure the producer will develop some ideas for in the future.
