Is ‘The New Mutant’ first X-men movie in MCU? Disney CONFIRMS

Last 24 hours have been a rather roller coaster of emotions for Marvel fans

First fans were lead to believe that the upcoming The New Mutant movie would be a part of MCU. ‘Disney delineated it as an MCU movie: “There’s a seriously electrifying new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it comes in the form of the latest from Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment…” (sic) read the original excerpt from their D23 newsletter.

Fan started treating it as confirmation of The New Mutant being the first  X men movie for MCU and got excited about a new era.

But all this came to a halt when Disney backtracked on their previous claims.

That reference was simply a mistake. Since then, Disney has rescinded the previous confirmation by removing any mention of The New Mutants’ connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Previously, Kevin Feige had casually mentioned The New Mutants as being a part of MCU, but then he’d clarified that he had not been hinting at any link between the two. That had bot stopped the fans from fantasizing about the glorious day when X-Men would officially be a part of MCU.

While they might have taken the confirmation back, they still haven’t said it is NOT a part of MCU

Thus, it is still up in the air if The New Mutants is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At this point, the lack of reshoots seen to dissuade fans’ from that notion.

Director Josh Boone has expressly said that version of the film which will be released is the movie he had envisioned it to be from the beginning- speculations of reshoots and re-writes that surrounded the film due to the delays which pushed back its release by more than two years.

Nothing is set in stone at this point, and this could be an opportunity for both X Men and MCU alike. If the movie does well and meets the Marvel standards, it just might pave a path into the famed MCU itself.
