MCU X-Men: 10 Characters Who Must Appear (And Who Should Play Them)

Do we REALLY need Wolverine?

Marvel Comics

Out of all the superhero teams found across the universes of both Marvel and DC, it's fair to say that the X-Men have one of - if not the - largest rosters ever to grace the pages of either publisher.

With that said, there are numerous characters to have starred alongside Marvel's mutants who we'd love to see in the films - far too many for one list alone. So, if you're wondering why none of the most famous X-people are here (the Wolverines and Cyclopses of this world), it's because it would be a waste of time to include them, seeing as it is highly likely that they will appear when the mutant populace joins the MCU within the franchise's next few phases.

But what about those mutants who aren't nailed on to appear on the big screen? With the X-Men dating all the way back to the 1960s, there are dozens of different, fan-favourite characters who haven't had a spotlight. Here are some of our picks for the slightly lesser known, or yet to be well-done, characters which should be chosen to feature in Kevin Feige's version of the team.
