While the advent of Disneyís historic purchase of Fox means that Marvel finally got back all the cinematic rights to their characters, we learned this week from Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige (https://www.criticalhit.net/gaming/kevin-feige-the-x-men-wont-join-the-mcu-for-a-very-long-time/) that we shouldnít be expecting to see the X-Men debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe any time soon as theyíre not part of the immediate plan. As I mentioned in that article though, Marvelís plan isnít wholly set in stone, which is how we got Tom Hollandís Spider-Man.
Of course, Spideyís entry into the MCU was the perfect alignment of several unexpected factors (the failure of Sonyís Amazing Spider-Man franchise being the biggest) that allowed the plan to change suddenly but organically. On top of that, the introduction of the Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man into the MCU wasnít a disruptive event, because heís simply that: a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. While Hollandís hero brings a great new dynamic to the MCU tapestry, he doesnít make too big of a global impact on the average citizen in this world.
