Marvel Studios Plans a Female-Focused X-Men Reboot with Mr. Sinister as the Villain


Marvel Studios is in the early stages of rebooting the X-Men series. The new direction focuses more on the female mutants, making it different from previous adaptations. Mr. Sinister is set to be the main antagonist, promising a fresh storyline for the iconic franchise.

The reboot idea comes after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, which opened the door for Marvel to reintegrate X-Men into its universe. Marvel’s Kevin Feige has hinted at making significant changes to distinguish this new series from the Fox versions. For now, we won’t see Magneto, ensuring a new flavor to the story.

Meetings with potential writers have already begun. While no script exists yet, insiders like Daniel Richtman reveal that the focus is on showcasing female characters more prominently. Eric Martin from ‘Loki’ is among those interested in contributing to the project. He believes the richness of X-Men’s characters offers great potential for deep, character-driven storytelling.

There were delays in reintroducing the X-Men due to contract stipulations with Fox. These might have restricted the use of familiar mutants like Wolverine and Storm until 2025, unless Fox veterans like Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer are credited. This could explain why only Professor Xavier has appeared in the MCU so far, with Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.’

Despite these challenges, Marvel continues to expand its mutant universe. New characters like Kamala Khan have been introduced as mutants, and Sabra is rumored to debut in ‘Captain America: Brave New World.’

As we wait for more details, the excitement builds for what could be a groundbreaking chapter for the X-Men under Marvel’s guidance. We’re hoping to hear more official updates by early next year.
