I am by no means an experiment on the MCU. I just watch pass the end credits and put things together. I am an absolute nerd when it comes to theories on the MCU. Overtime, I’ve learned that everything that is put in these movies is intentional. I’ve predicted a lot of things in that’s happened in the movies, along with the help of my sister. So here’s what I think is next.
There’s going to be an X-Men and MCU crossover
Technically, this was supposed to have already happened. I believe in the original comics, the X-Men teamed up with the Avengers to fight Thanos. But let me tell you why I think this is definitely going to happen. So if you’ve watched the Disney Original Series What if? and Loki then you would know about the infinite number of timelines. Now this part may get a bit confusing, as this was very tedious to put together. In the series WandaVision, there is this part where Wanda becomes the Scarlet Witch. This was a pivotal part in her timeline as she becomes more powerful than anything in that universe.
At the exact same time, and you can put them side by side, in Loki, there is a part where The Watcher pauses almost as if something has gone off script. Then he proceeds to say, We just crossed the threshold. Now, I don’t know what this means exactly, but from there he proceeds to go on a rant about protecting the time line. Now the Loki Variant, Sylvie, ends up killing a version of The Watcher, causing the timeline to open. From here there are an infinite amount of possibilities, including one where we have an X-Men/MCU crossover.
Now if you are familiar with X-Men, then you would know that the villain Magneto has kids. This is where everything becomes messy, but not because of the story itself, but because of production. Originally, Magneto’s kids are Wanda and Quicksilver. Now we were only introduced to Quicksilver and Wanda was nowhere to be seen throughout X-Men. Since Disney took over Marvel, this theory was completely thrown out of the window when they decided to have an entire different person play the MCU’s version of Quicksilver. HOWEVER, in WandaVision the original actor that played Quicksilver was portrayed as her brother. And when Wanda is finally pulled out of her delusion, everything that is considered to be a “her imagination” goes away. For example, the old Vision, and her kids go away as the veil of delusion goes down. Do you know who doesn’t go away after it’s all over? The X-Men version of Quicksilver. There is also a part where they expand on it a little bit when Agatha, the villain, says that this character is a real person and not just a made of version of the brother she’s lost. Now this left me with a lot of questions, but I believe that this is the actual Quicksilver from X-Men and not some doped version of her MCU brother. I believe that he’s been stuck there ever since X-Men: Days of Future Past, where Wolverine goes back in time to stop a few things. The reason I say that is because in the clip where Agatha finds Quicksilver and makes him her minion it, it shows the same exact house Wolverine found him in Days of Future Past. Thus sparks my theory for a crossover.
Dr. Strange is actually Mephisto
If you’re familiar with Spider-Man, then you would know about the new movie that’s coming out in December. THIS IS ABOUT THE TIMELINES!!! So, yeah, anyways, I’ve watched the trailers for Spider-Man and something seemed extremely off for me. Dr. Strange was sending off too many red flags. Now if you know Dr. Strange then you know that he does not play about the timeline. He quite literally threaten anyone who tried to abuse the time stone in his movie and in Endgame. With the timeline no longer being protected by The Watcher, it is now vulnerable to so many risks. Some that we’re going to be introduced to in the new Spider-Man movie. Now here’s why I think Dr. Strange is actually the demon Mephisto.
For one his nonchalant attitude and misuse of power is completely out of character for him. Now if you’re familiar with the comics, then you would know that Mephisto is basically the devil version of the MCU. He’s is also Dr. Stranger’s main enemy. No one would be as irresponsible and play with the timeline other than Mephisto, it’s literally his whole purpose, causing chaos. Also, I would like to add that Mephisto also appears in the Fantastic Four comics and is an enemy to Dr. Doom. This may be an opening to a timeline to a possible crossover. Fingers-crossed.
Did anybody else get confused at the ending of Shang-Chi?
Now this isn’t a theory, I just wanted to express my concerns. Yet again I am left with nothing but more questions because I am cursed with watching the clips after the credits. I could make my life much easier if I turned off the TV after the movie ends like a normal person, but curiosity killed the cat.
SPOILER ALERT (I know that this movie is relatively new so if you haven’t watched it, don’t read this part.)
So at the end of the movie Shang-Chi and Katy are pulled into a portal guided by Wong, Dr. Stranger’s friend. There they discuss where the Ten Rings could have originated from with Captain Marvel and Bruce Banner A.K.A the Hulk. As Wong disscets the rings, he notices that a small part of the ring serves as a beacon for something.
Actually I do have a theory now.
Maybe this beacon was for the villain in The Eternals. I haven’t watched the movie yet, but the trailers suggest that a powerful energy wave served as a beacon for the one thing they were sent there to fight. If it is, I would like to say whoever directed these movies is a genius. This was a perfect transition into The Eternals franchise. They also mention that the Ten Rings predates anything they’ve ever known before. Do you know what else predates anything they’ve ever known before? THE ETERNALS!!! Maybe this is their technology. This just made me even more excited to go watch it!
I might make this into a series, because I have a ton of Marvel, X-Men, and Fantastic Four theories that are just waiting to be shared.
