While Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce any mutant-related projects, the concept of mutation was introduced into the franchise earlier this year when it was revealed that’s where Kamala Kha, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, gets her powers from. According to recent rumors, though, Marvel Studios is certainly working on an X-Men project behind the scenes, which is rumored to be titled The Mutants.
As for Wolverine, his casting is one of the most hotly debated topics among MCU fans, as following up Hugh Jackman’s iconic performance as the character is certainly no small task.
The first two episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are currently streaming on Disney+.
