Marvel has made a few allusions to the Fox X-Males universe inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the outdated X-Males animated theme in Ms. Marvel, a Patrick Stewart cameo as Professor X in Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity — however the first full on MCU film for a Fox alum shall be subsequent 12 months’s Deadpool 3, which is rapidly shaping as much as be a full-on return for an enormous chunk of the corporate’s outdated Marvel solid.
