Is Wolverine Joining the Avengers When He Comes to the MCU?

With Avengers: Endgame now out of the way and numerous storylines and character arcs having wrapped up, what comes next for the MCU? Well, with the ink finally all dried up on the Disney/Fox deal, Marvel now has their hands on the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four and what better way to move forward than to bring us new takes on iconic heroes like Wolverine?

Clearly, that’s something that Kevin Feige is planning, but what exactly lies ahead for Wolvie and the rest of the mutants? Well, it’s a bit too early to be discussing exact plans just yet, but according to sources close to We Got This Covered, Marvel will be looking to the comic books as they so often do and plan to have Logan join the Avengers.

The plan is to first introduce Wolverine into the MCU on his own and as a member of the X-Men before he joins up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. That’s not to say he’ll leave the mutants behind, though, as we understand that he’ll play a role on both teams – again, just like in the comics.

Given that Kevin Feige’s already said that it’ll be at least another five years before the X-Men enter the MCU, we imagine we won’t hear anything official on this for some time yet.
