After a clear lineup in the Ms. Marvel finale, Marvel Studios must prepare to announce an X-Men project at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
Warning! Spoilers ahead for those Mrs Miracle Final.
Marvel Studios needs to brace themselves to finally announce one X-Men Project at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Since its iron man Panel in 2007, the MCU presentations in Hall H have become one of the most anticipated parts of SDCC. The franchise has skipped the event a number of times, most recently in the last two years when SDCC moved to a virtual environment due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, now Marvel Studios is gearing up for a comeback as it has officially announced that the MCU will be at SDCC 2022.
After the end of the Infinity saga, the MCU presented its phase 4 plans during SDCC 2019. The first wave of Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series has been announced, as well as several films. The release of Thor: Love and Thunder means that all the projects released back then have already been released, making the franchise’s SDCC 2022 panel intriguing. If that’s not exciting enough, Mrs Miracle Finale’s mutant reference may have made it that much more interesting.
In which Mrs Miracle Finale, Bruno Carrelli (Matt Lintz) informs Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) has “some kind of mutation‘ in their genes that enhances their powers. While Marvel Studios has dropped hints about the existence of the X-Men in the MCU, this is the most explicit hint they’ve given to the mutants to date, suggesting that Ms. Marvel could be the MCU’s first mutant. If that’s not enough, the X Men ’97’s theme also plays in the background during this scene. This reveal is a perfectly timed prelude to Marvel Studios’ possible announcement of an X-Men project at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, which is just over a week away. This distinctive setup in Ms. Marvel can’t be ignored knowing how popular mutants are, and Marvel Studios is aware of that. With the SDCC coming up, it’s likely that they’ve already anticipated questions about it at the event, giving them the perfect opportunity to finally confirm the X-Men’s arrival in the MCU.
Will X-Men really be announced at Comic-Con 2022?
With all of Marvel Studios’ previously confirmed Phase 4 shows and films already out and only four films dated, another announcement from the franchise is pending. This means it will unveil its next set of projects, which are set to be released from late 2023 onwards. Depending on how far along in its storytelling Marvel Studios is willing to reveal at this point, it’s likely that the highly anticipated X-Men project will already be part of Marvel Studios’ next SDCC panel. In between Mrs Miracle‘s latest reveal and all the other mutant references in phase 4, it doesn’t seem like the franchise is going to wait long to officially introduce fan-favorite characters. For what it’s worth, Kevin Feige already named them in SDCC 2019, which means they’ve long since figured out how to integrate the X-Men into the MCU. They’re just waiting for the perfect opportunity to make it known.
Granted, it’s possible that X-Men Restart project can be announced in other ways. After all, there’s also D23 Expo and even Disney Investor’s Day, both of which have previously been used to validate forthcoming MCU endeavors. That being said, Marvel Studios know better than to miss the chance to make a big splash out of this big news during SDCC, especially in the aftermath Mrs Miracle‘s finale. So it makes a lot more sense for Feige and his team to reveal their plans for the mutants, including possible casting decisions, during the annual event in San Diego.
