In an interview with Screen Rant, Kevin Feige was asked about the long-awaited introduction of the X-Men into the Marvel Universe. While he was not shy about raising the issue, the producer confirmed that there are “lengthy discussions” taking place regarding the mutants’ entry into the MCU.
“You know how much I love the X-Men. I can’t say anything until officially announcing it, but rest assured, we’re having long discussions on this.
Recently, screenwriter David Hayter, responsible for ‘X-Men’ 1 and 2, was asked if he ever thought of a story if he was asked to write the new mutant films for the MCU.
In response, he made it a mystery, but made it clear he would like to be hired for the job.
“If I had thought, I couldn’t say it, because it wasn’t worth doing anymore. But if they called me [para escrever o roteiro], of course I would.
However, it’s hard to imagine Marvel wanting to repeat the formula from previous films, and Hayter was very realistic in saying:
“I mean, that would be amazing, but I don’t expect that to happen. If I were Kevin Feige, I would say, “We need new voices, new ideas and new faces. I think they want to move away from the versions made by Bryan Singer for several reasons. But if they ask me, I’ve already made it clear to Kevin that I can work on any Marvel production. I would be happy to do this for the rest of my life.
Released in 2000, the first “X-Men” film revolutionized comic book adaptations for the cinema and served as the inspiration for several successful productions, such as the MCU.
Starring Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin and Famke Janssen, the film became a classic for fans and is still praised today, despite the bad sequences.
With a budget of $ 75 million, the adaptation directed by Bryan Singer has been a critical and public success, raising $ 296 million worldwide, in addition to gaining 81% approval on Rotten Tomatoes.
In all, the main franchise also includes’ X-Men 2 ‘,’ X-Men: The Final Showdown ‘,’ X-Men: First Class’, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse ”and“ X-Men: Dark Phoenix ”.
