A question for comic book geeks. Isn't it kinda weird that the x-men and mutants storyline involved them being excluded and discriminated ?

But they are now excluded from the marvel cinematic universe? I know its a rights issue but mutants should come to the mcu

    I always felt that Marvel trying to relate mutant rights to civil rights was awkward. Comparing their plight to gay rights seemed more accurate to me. I hoped X-Men's Quicksilver being in WandaVision would finally bridge the divide between the MCU and Fox's mutant universes, but alas that was not the case. Its both a missed opportunity and a shame.

    From what I understand the Marvel tv show Wandavision is the start of them merging the two universes.

    Ever since Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, fans have been wondering when the X-Men will show up alongside the rest of Marvel’s roster in the MCU films. The X-Men previously starred in their own shared universe under the umbrella of 20th Century Fox. Their franchise consisted of 13 films, concluding after 20 years with The New Mutants in August 2020 following several delays and a poor box office performance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, as well as all its intellectual property, in early 2019.

    The two things aren't really connected.  One is a story element and metaphor, the other is the fallout from deals Marvel struck to avoid bankruptcy.  Marvel was almost bankrupt, so they licensed out all of the characters they could to studios in exchange for cash.  Fantastic Four, Hulk, X-Men, Spider-Man.  And all related characters.  

    They were left only with their least marketable characters - basically the Avengers related characters.  They finally began trying to make their own movies when Marvel Studios was born.  They PARTIALLY got Hulk back from Universal and kicked off the MCU with Iron Man.  They became a cash cow and Disney bought them.

    Every since, they've been slowly clawing them back.  They got FF awhile ago and recently bought a huge chunk of the FOX empire to get X-Men back.  Spider-Man is still in Sony's hands, but Sony has been willing to work with Marvel to let them use exchange for a share of the take.  And of course, that relationship has been filled with acrimony.  Universal seems completely content to have no Hulk solo projects happen and not allow Disney to get Hulk back.

    Mutants are coming to the MCU.  The question is when and how.  Alot of people think the current WandaVision TV series is how they're going to be introduced.  And since Evan Peters appeared as Quicksilver, that kind of head nods that it might be true.

    But don't expect a full-on mutants movie (other than a continuation of Deadpool) anytime soon.  They only recently got the X-Men back and already had alot of Phase 4 projects underway.

    Yeah its crazy how that happened. In the 90s marvel went bankrupt and had to sell their movie rights and even comic rights temporarily to survive. And as superhero movies have got more and more popular some of those companies held onto the rights because they seemed incredibly valuable, even tho in some cases the movies they were making weren't at all profitable. But now all the rights are coming back to marvel and hopefully they'll making an awesome cohesive mavel movie universe. The way they're integrating things btw, is by introducing the concept of alternate universes and bringing in tons of characters from other universes. They say even the marvel movies of the past will show up, like the 2000s ff movie characters having a cameo.

    Marvel just got the rights to them.  They had created a universe without mutants because of the rights issues.  In the world the X-Men inhabit, mutants have been known about for decades, going back to just after WWII.  That will be hard to integrate into the MCU, which is in the current year but has never had mutants before.  The plan is to integrate mutants into the MCU, but they have to figure out how to do it effectively.
