**Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home SPOILERS to follow**
With the release of the new Spider-Man: Far From Home movie trailer, Marvel seems to be hinting that they’re going to start using the Multiverse in their Marvel Cinematic Universe. First of all, I don’t believe it, considering Mysterio is the one introducing the concept. Second of all, a lot of people online seem to think this is how Marvel will introduce the X-Men and Fantastic Four into the main MCU.
I think that’s bollocks.
Bringing alternate reality versions of the X-Men and F4 into the main Marvel movie universe is a weak cop-out, especially since both teams can be introduced naturally within the existing world framework.
These are just some ideas I’m kicking around in my head. Considering this is my blog and I don’t have any corporate overlords or advertisers pulling my strings, I can write whatever nonsense I want to write. And today, I want to share my ideas for how to organically introduce the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially in the wake of Avengers: Endgame.
Join me after the jump for my ideas! And beware of Endgame spoilers!
The biggest draw of this week’s comics would have to be X-Men and Uncanny X-Men. Both are fresh of Battle of the Atom, and both get right down to business of telling entertaining X-Men stories. And the fact that both issues focus on lesser tiered X-Men is just a hoot. Let Wolverine have his solo titles, I want to read about Karima Sharpandar and Benjamin Deeds!
Not that the rest of this week’s comics are anything to scoff at. Avengers started to wrap up Infinity, while Wonder Woman is still in the early stages of her next story arc. One of the biggest issues this week is Batwoman, where new writer Marc Andreyko takes over from the bombastic team of J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman. Unfortunately, Andreyko’s Zero Year tie-in leaves a lot to be desired. But like I said, both X-books are strong. Comic Book of the Week goes to Uncanny X-Men for an issue focusing on new recruit Benjamin Deeds, and his oddly The Graduate-esque team up with Emma Frost.
Comic Reviews: Avengers #23, Batwoman #25, Uncanny X-Men #14, Wonder Woman #25, and X-Men #7.
