This is also huge news for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Fans speculated just how the X-Men storyline with tie into the recent events transpiring in the MCU.

In 2019, Marvel acquired the rights to 20th Century Fox, which distributed the live-action film series.

In the comic book universe, the band of mutants eventually did cross paths with their fellow Marvel superheroes, The Avengers. However, the previous animated series and the film adaptations never expanded on this, though characters like Quicksilver made an appearance in both the X-Men and the Avengers series

Since Marvel does intend to also reboot the Fantastic Four franchise, it's almost a given the same will happen for the X-Men.

But, for now, the revival of the 90s cartoon show is something to look forward to!
