Scoop: Mutants Have Always Been in the MCU
Written By Mikey Sutton • Editor-in-Chief • Owner
There is no spoiler warning needed to announce that mutants will exist in the MCU. After all Disney has the X-Men cinematic rights back, and it's just a matter of time before they appear.
However, according to a source, we have seen them for years. I am told that the Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver will be retconned as mutants in the MCU, the daughter and son of Magneto, who has long been missing, kidnapped and still being held in prison by Hydra on the island of Krakoa. Apparently, the Scarlet Witch learns this information from witch Agatha Harkness.
I am told this was spilled during conversations prior to WandaVision entering pre-production, and I'm unsure as to what is being kept. The seeds for the X-Men have been in the MCU for years; now it's time for them to bear fruit.
