Wolverine, the most iconic and beloved Marvel mutant, could he already be an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? The answer might surprise you.
As we know, the character went through the events of the saga of x-men through the twelve films produced by 20th Century Fox in the early 2000s. But with the takeover of the studio by Disney, it’s only a matter of time before the X-men make their debut in the world. Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Studios is thus paving the way for the introduction of mutants into their choral stories, and the first clear reference came in recent weeks during the latest installment of Ms. Marvel. At the end of the series we discover that the protagonist of the series, Khamala Khan, is actually a mutant, and that she has a strange genetic anomaly. This event undoubtedly marked a boundary, effectively confirming that mutants have always been an implicit part of the MCU. Nevertheless other clues can also be found in other Marvel series.
In the third season of dare the devil Bullseye’s character undergoes a mysterious surgery carried out by Dr. Kenji Oyama who installs a Cogmium steel reinforcement. Oyama, formerly known in the comics as Lord Dark Wind, is known to be the scientist who learned how to bond adamantium to human bone, and is therefore closely tied to Wolverine’s origins.
This brings us to a sensational new clue unearthed by the most attentive fans of She-Hulk. In one scene we see Jennifer Walters surfing the internet and at one point you can see an unmistakable title that reads:Man with metal claws involved in bar fight‘. So it seems to be there Final Confirmation Presence of Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But what version of the character could he show? As was the case at the start of 20th Century Fox’s previous saga, Wolverine may still be a wanderer in search of his past who struggles in his wanderings not to attract attention. It’s also easy to imagine how the infamous experimental Arma X project – from which he obtained his iconic vibranium bones – was nothing more than another attempt to reproduce in a new version the Super Soldier project launched during World War II.
After sowing such obvious references, it’s hard to think that Marvel Studios isn’t preparing to introduce the new incarnation of the characterwhich could make its official debut in Phase 5 or 6. It probably won’t happen anytime soon, but there seems to be less and less doubt that sooner or later we’ll get a new Wolverine.
