The deal between Disney and Fox is in the last stages of finalization. While it’s safe to assume some folks over at the House of Mouse are already hard at work on how to best integrate Fox into the whole of the company, the X-Men coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is really the biggest part of the deal for us nerds. Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey, recently spoke with Newsweek and said while she wants the crossover to happen, she doesn’t think it is going to be easy.
“I don’t know. I feel the complexities of the X-men being shunned by society and segregated is not something that happens in the Avengers universe. Of course, I want to see them crossover but I don’t think the themes through X-men will collaborate well with the Avengers. It’ll be very different. If they do it, I’d love to see how it turns out.”

Turner is correct, the transition to the MCU is going to be a new challenge for Feige and company. However, I believe it’s not unreasonable to expect that they’ve been formulating a plan since before Fox even accepted the deal (that is pure speculation on my part). The same team that brilliantly brought Spider-Man into the fold a few years ago should have no major issues doing the same with the X-Men, and if we are looking back at the MCU in a loving way, us fans have no reason to doubt Marvel’s capabilities to pull off this crossover.
