The great snap by Thanos is most remembered for its massive destruction and terror as it wiped out half of the galaxy’s population. However, now it is believed that this universe-shattering snap might also be Marvel’s method of introducing X-Men characters into the MCU.
After the merger of Disney and 20th Century Fox, many questioned when and how fans might get to see everyone’s favorite X-Men characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, said it might take some time. Although, a new theory claims it could be as soon as Marvel’s upcoming film, “The Eternals.”
According to We Got This Covered, it’s rumored that “The Eternals” could introduce the ancient race of immortals into the franchise. Specifically, it’s believed that the film will reveal that the Eternals created the X-Gene, which is believed to be the starting point for a possible X-Men reboot down the line.
As far as Thanos’ snap from the end of Avengers: Endgame, it’s said that this will be used as the explanation for the X-Gene being activated across the globe, which will create the mutants.
It’s already been revealed that the snap has major consequences for the MCU going forward in the upcoming film “Spider-Man: Far From Home” film. In the movie’s trailers, it’s noted that Thanos’ snap weakened the walls between the dimensions, which is what allowed Mysterio and the Elementals into Earth-616.
This idea could also be plausible for the fact that Kevin Feige has already confirmed that Fox-owned Marvel characters will find their way into the MCU down the line. This new theory plants the seed that can grow in the future when the time is ready for the film company and the MCU.
