The first proper “X-Men” film to take place (at least partially) in the MCU is “Deadpool 3.” It’s bound to contain plenty of multiverse-hopping as the Merc with a Mouth (Ryan Reynolds) will team up with fan-favorite Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). On top of that, there are rumors that a ton of other “X-Men” movie cameos could take place, and many fans suspect this will all be possible thanks to the TVA from “Loki.”
It all started innocently enough when Ryan Reynolds interacted with a Miss Minutes (Tara Strong) account on X. That’s all it takes these days for fans’ imaginations to run wild, and it actually makes a lot of sense. From what we can glean from “Loki” Season 2, Episode 1, the TVA has heavily militarized its hunters to take down Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino). If they’re on a mission to eliminate all branched timelines, it would add up for them to target the Fox “X-Men” movie universe, with Deadpool and perhaps a few friends trying to make it into the MCU.
The specific X-Men reference in “Ouroboros” doesn’t really hint at much in terms of how the superhero team may enter the franchise. It’s more of a visual tease, but it sets the record straight that one way or another — the X-Men are coming. And “Loki” would certainly make for an interesting welcome wagon.
