Recent years have seen the Marvel Cinematic Universe expand in a number of ways, with The Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox only opening up more storytelling opportunities for the franchise. A pivotal moment for the franchise came in WandaVisionwhen the Fox version of Pietro Maximoff appeared in the series, as Evan Peters had played him in the X-Men films. Previously, the X-Men franchise had to keep its distance from the MCU due to different studios owning the rights to these characters, though these issues are no longer preventing these opportunities from occurring.
Similarly, last year’s Spider-Man: No Way Home featured the returns of former Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who had played versions of Peter Parker in films produced by Sony. With Marvel Studios and Sony having come to agreements on characters crossing studio lines, it seems like anything is possible in the future of the MCU.
