    Marvel Studios May Drop The ‘Men’ From X-Men
    David James Sep 21, 2021 8:34 am



    It’s going to be a big deal when mutants finally arrive in the MCU.

    Many of the most popular comic-book characters in the world are among their numbers, and I’m hyped for MCU takes on Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, and Charles Xavier. But Marvel Studios is in no rush and has many existing characters and storylines to work with before cracking open this franchise. When the superhero team does finally arrive, however, there’s a good chance the X-Men might not be the X-Men.

    Marvel Studios’ new President of Physical, Post Production, VFX, and Animation, Victoria Alonso, has hinted that internal thinking is that the name ‘X-Men’ isn’t sufficiently inclusive:

    In an interview with Nuke the Fridge, she said:

    “I don’t know where the future is going. It’s funny that people call it the X-Men, there’s a lot of female superheroes in that X-Men group, so I think it’s outdated.“

    She’s right, but Disney will be keenly aware that the X-Men brand name is known around the world and carries a lot of weight. Conversely, it might be easy to drop as Fox X-Universe movies don’t actually use the phrase “X-Men” very often. Dark Phoenix even specifically called this out, with Mystique saying to Charles:

    “By the way, the women are always saving the men around here. You might want to think about changing the name to X-Women.”

    So what are the alternatives? If Marvel followed the same pattern as The Avengers, we could see solo movies establishing each key mutant before bringing them all together for a team-up. Perhaps that could simply be called ‘Mutants’, covering all MCU newcomers, both good and evil.

    Then again, Alonso also teased that her future animation projects might see a full-on MCU musical so it seems silly to try and second-guess what they’re going to do:

    “I’m especially thrilled about ramping up our studio’s animation efforts, which is a personal passion of mine. Look forward to more singing!…”

    Marvel Studios’ animation department is off to a very strong start with What If..? so let’s hope future efforts match this quality. And, in the meantime, let’s start getting hyped for X-Men, no matter what the team is eventually called.

    From wikipedia: Psaki graduated from Greenwich High School in 1996. In 2000, she graduated from the College of William & Mary with a degree in English and sociology.

    Obviously not a business degree.

    If you graduate from a US high school and a college and think companies wont raise prices if costs rise it is more than fair to say she is just retarded.

    But look how Bond started out -- played by Barry Nelson in a 1954 CBS television production of Casino Royale:

    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."
    Erwin N. Griswold

    Taxes: Of life's two certainties, the only one for which you can get an automatic extension.

    In which Bond was American and Felix Leiter was British. But there was one bright spot. Le Chiffre was played by Peter Lorre.

    It also stayed within a mile of Ian Fleming's plot, unlike the Broccoli series.

    Bond drove a Bentley. Ian Fleming never put him on a Vespa. Vespas were for evil Bulgars

    Good point, I was referring however to the rolled-up sleeves. James Bond would never roll up his sleeves. It's just not proper.

    They're trying to train progs to explode their heads at the mention of his name like Pavlov's dogs, so GOP primary voters will vote for him like Pavlov's dogs.

    I wholeheartedly hopes she pushes for EVERYTHING! Don't fall for the crumb, sister! If they offer you that crumb, you sink that whole bill, ok?!
