MCU News: There Will Be An ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ Film in Phase 6, Suggests A 'Close' Marvel Source

According to the latest source, which is close to Marvel, it’s been speculated that in Phase 6 of the MCU, there will be an ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ film! Yes, you read that right.

The rumors are suggesting that Marvel Studios is, as of now, busy in planning to introduce the X-Men into the now-famous cinematic universe, which was started back in 2008 by the head Kevin Feige.

Specifically speaking about the source, then the website, We Got This Covered, has, in its report, mentioned that the entry of the X-Men will be clashing with the return of the Avengers—but the new ones.

Because, as we saw in 2019, Endgame finished the entire Infinity Saga, while also ending the arcs for various core members of the Avengers as well. And now, in the future, we will be seeing a completely new group, consisting of some old and some new faces, like Captain Marvel, Thor, Lady Thor, Doctor Strange, Scarlett Witch, Blade, etc.

As per the above-mentioned entertainment website, the 'close' source also revealed that this rumored ‘Avengers vs X-Men’ film, however, won’t be coming before the mid-2020s. It implies that only upon the beginning of Phase 6 of the MCU, this flick will be arriving.

But this much long time period also makes sense, when considering the fact that after the events of Endgame, a new team of Avengers has to be created now, gradually, with each new film which will be coming now, starting from the next year.

There’s another prediction, too, about Phase 5 (not officially announced yet), that before the debut of X-Men, as a team in Phase 6, we may get a look at the MCU version of Wolverine himself. And his movie may appear as early as Phase 5!

It is to be noted that, last month in July, Marvel Studios revealed Phase 4, while introducing exciting upcoming films and shows, along with new characters also. And this month, fans are hoping to get an official announcement about Phase 5 as well, in the upcoming D23 Expo, which is Disney's own annual event.
