As we head deeper into the Multiverse Saga, it's becoming apparent Marvel Studios is laying the groundwork for mutants to finally appear. Ms. Marvel confirmed that Kamala Khan is one of them, while we've been hearing rumblings that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's Namor the Submariner is as well.
Deadpool 3 will feature Wolverine, though the expectation is that most (if not all) of the threequel will take place in the X-Men Universe, and not Earth-616.
Still, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has now pointed to that as taking us a step closer to finally seeing the X-Men assemble alongside the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the MCU.
"That's what Jennifer Walters just asked the robot in the final episode of She-Hulk. And I'll give you the same answer that he gave, which was, I don't remember, no answer. I think was what he gave, yes," Feige joked. "But Deadpool and Wolverine, you know, we're getting close."
Feige was also asked about possible Young - or New - Avengers plans, and suggested fans aren't wrong to be looking for clues about what the future holds in store for Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
"Well, I think people pick up what we're putting down sometimes. And we take our cues from the comics. And yes, you know, introducing as many characters as we can from the comics is what I've spent the last twenty-two years doing," he teases. "And those are among the many that we've introduced."
As always, the executive only gave away what he wanted to, and the future of the X-Men and Avengers is clearly something he's not willing to say too much about at this stage. With any luck, Feige will be a little more willing to divulge his secrets in the coming weeks and months.
