Patrick Stewart and Kevin Feige have been talking about how to introduce the X-Men into the Cinematic Universe of Marvel; actor must not return to role
Much was celebrated after the Disney have bought the Fox, last year, and acquired the franchise rights as Deadpool and X-Men. Even so, little has been disclosed so far about the introduction of mutants to the Cinematographic Universe of Marvel (MCU) – so far. According to Digital Spy, the boss of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, and actor Patrick Stewart, who plays the Professor Xavier oldest in the franchise X-Men, has been talking about how to introduce the team to the MCU.
Charlies Xavier from another time
During the interview, it was revealed that the two stars discussed the future of Professor Xavier US X-Men after the events of Logan (2017). In the film, the team’s mentor becomes a worldwide threat because he has a degenerative mental illness. When he has seizures, his brain becomes a lethal weapon and everyone around him suffers from the possibility of sudden illness.
The transformation of the Teacher in this weapon, but the film tells that there was a “Winchester Incident”, where the hero accidentally had a seizure that resulted in the death of 7 X-Men and injured another 600 people. The events took place a year before Logan.
With that, it is very likely that Charles Xavier be played by an actor other than Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy, considering the events of the Cinematographic Universe of Marvel take place on another timeline. Taking into account that there was a confusion in the timeline of the universe during Avengers: Ultimatum (2019), a new teacher can “appear” at any time.
