Ever since Disney completed their acquisition of Fox in 2019, worth more than 71 billion dollars, Marvel fans have started speculating when will X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, and other characters which Fox previously owned officially join the MCU. So far, we got official announcements that Fantastic Four will be introduced in the franchise in 2025, shortly before the next Avengers movie — The Kang Dynasty. Ryan Reynolds will return to star in Deadpool 3 a year before that, and Hugh Jackman will also come out of his Wolverine retirement and reprise the role in that movie.
Patrick Stewart was a special guest star as Charles Xavier in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Still, apart from those special returns, it’s unknown when the new generation of X-Men will join the mainstream Marvel Cinematic Universe. No brand-new X-Men was announced yet, and looking at the schedule; it looks like X-Men aren’t set to become the crucial gearwheel of the MCU’s machine for at least a few more years now.
Still, that won’t stop the fans from speculating which stars we could watch in which role once the next X-Men movie arrives. Of course, the main question is about the new Wolverine because it’s still obvious that Hugh Jackman is returning to be a special guest star, not the MCU’s main Wolverine. We know how many characters there are in X-Men’s roster, and plenty of young and talented stars could eventually reach the peak of their careers by joining some great blockbuster franchises such as MCU.
One of those young and talented stars is Millie Bobby Brown. At the age of 19, she’s already gained huge recognition. She is best known for playing Eleven in Netflix’s series Stranger Things since 2016, for which she received two nominations for Primetime Emmy Award. She also starred in 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, its 2021 sequel Godzilla vs. Kong, Netflix’s Enola Holmes, in which she played a titular role in 2020, and the sequel Enola Holmes 2 in 2022. She only has 13 credits as an actress on IMDb, and she’s already one of the most-known actresses of her generation.
Therefore, the critics and audience predict a long and successful career for her. If she ever gets the chance, it wouldn’t be a surprise if we’d eventually watch her in some superhero blockbuster, and the fans already have a good suggestion on who she could play if she ever joins the MCU. The editor of fan-arts known as @cap.ironwidow on Instagram has given his followers one splendid work on how Millie Bobby Brown could look like Kitty Pryde in the MCU. You can see the art below:
Katherine Anne “Kitty” Pryde is a superhero created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. She was first introduced in The Uncanny X-Men #129 in January 1980 and has been commonly associated with X-Men since then. She can become intangible, allowing her to walk through walls and other solid objects or even hide inside the ground. Sumela Kay previously played the character in X-Men and Katie Stuart in X2 in cameo roles.
In 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, Kitty becomes a vital member of X-Men, portrayed by Elliot Page, who reprised the role in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. In January 2018, it was announced that Kitty was supposed to get a solo movie. Still, those plans were ultimately abandoned with Disney’s acquisition of Fox and Fox’s X-Men franchise ending.
