Fans’ reaction to the rumors

“they’re throwing away X-Men,” a user said claiming the “name isn’t inclusive”.

A user voiced the title to be the X-Men and said, “IF IT IS AN X-MEN MOVIE, USE X-MEN”.

A fan had mixed thoughts and said, “it feels stupid to change the X-Men title if it still focuses on the team”.

“I think that it works cuz of the way that the MCU is going”, a fan said reminding what Kevin Feige said during the SDCC 2019. 

Most of the fans would agree with this!

Will the X-Men project be renamed The Mutants? 


As per the rumors of X-Men being renamed as The Mutants, the fans do not support the decision by Marvel. Since nothing is confirmed until Marvel finally announces its X-Men / Mutant projects at the SDCC 2022, fans are still hoping for a better appearance of X-Men in the MCU.
