Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige made a cameo appearance in Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men #21.
This week’s latest X-Men comic features a brilliant meta cameo by Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, the head honcho behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men #21, a rad party is being held at the Hellfire Gala, with the Children of the Atom in attendance. It’s a boisterous and busy party, so much so that regular, non-X-Men attendants are having a hard time getting a drink from the bar. Lucky for attendees, Cyclops is there to quench everyone’s thirst.
Shortly after Cyclops gets a fan a drink, he’s approached by Marvel’s Kevin Feige and is asked “So… what’s your story?” Cyclops responds by letting the Marvel head know that it’s “complicated”.
This cheeky cameo has fueled tons of rumors that suggest that the X-Men will be joining the MCU soon. Now that Disney and Kevin Feige hold the rights to the X-Men, their inclusion in the franchise is practically a done deal. We’ll have to see what comes of this cameo but realistically, it’s probably just a fun tease to spice things up for fans.
X-Men #21 is set to be Jonathan Hickman’s final X-Men comic.
What are your thoughts on Kevin Feige’s cameo? Are you sad to see Jonathan Hickman leave the superhero team behind?
Here is the official synopsis for 20th Century Fox’s final X-Men film, The New Mutants: X-Men: Dark Phoenix:
Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), Illyana Rasputin (Anya Taylor-Joy), Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton) and Roberto da Costa (Henry Zaga) are four young mutants being held in an isolated hospital for psychiatric monitoring. Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga), believing the teenagers are a danger both to themselves and to society as a whole, keeps a close eye on them as she struggles to teach them how to rein in their mutant abilities. When newcomer Danielle “Dani” Moonstar (Blu Hunt) joins the other patients in the facility, strange occurrences begin to take place. The hospital’s patients are plagued by hallucinations and flashbacks, and their new mutant abilities–and their friendships–will be tested as they battle to try to make it out alive.
Directed by Josh Boone from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee, The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga.
