With Phase 4 on its way, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is preparing to expand again. But there is still a little uncertainly as to what direction the series will go. Massive changes have occurred, and right now it's difficult to predict what's next for Marvel. The Avengers are still in play but having lost Cap and Tony, there is a feeling that the the star power of the franchise has faded.

However, the introduction of new heroes and worlds is bound to bring in a lot of attention, and a group that MCU fans desperately want to see are the X-Men.

One of their biggest and most successful properties, the X-Men are an embodiment of what makes Marvel so fun, yet in all of their career in film they have belonged to another company, unable to interact with some of the Marvel Universe's most famous characters.

Once Marvel can create their version of the mutant super-team, viewers are inevitably in for a treat. Right now one of the most exciting things to speculate on is who will be taking which role within the cast.

The X-Men are filled with beloved and iconic characters, and any of the following actors would be sure to do them justice.


Hey, I'm Michael, lover of all things geeky, in games I always play as sneaky, favourite lion king character is Rafiki. In all seriousness, I am a Bristol-born boy, who moved out to Surrey to get his Bachelors degree in Drama and Theatre Studies before moving on to gain a Masters from the Guildford School of Acting. I adore all things pop culture, and will talk your ear off about anything ranging from my favourite wrestler (AJ Styles) to my favourite show (Avatar the Last Airbender)
