MCU fans had to wait a lot to get an introduction of X-Men in its universe and it was until Professor Charles Xavier got his neck twisted by Scarlett Witch in Doctor Strange 2. Another moment that hyped up the introduction of X-Men in the MCU was when it was found Kamala Khan has genes of “Mutants”. According to various rumors, the X-Men origin movie will be titled ‘The Mutants’ and will be announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.

Rumors of X-Men movie introduced as ‘The Mutants” in the MCU
According to a report by Deadline, Marvel Studios might announce a larger exploration of the entire “Mutants” community before shedding light on its iconic X-Men characters with a new project, “The Mutants”. As the news got over the internet, the fans who waited for the same X-Men characters that existed before will be introduced in the MCU got a little disheartened.
Fans’ reaction to the rumors
“they’re throwing away X-Men,” a user said claiming the “name isn’t inclusive”.
LOL they’re throwing away X-Men.— YellowFlash (@YellowFlashGuy) July 20, 2022
Because the name isn’t inclusive. https://t.co/yEGNwQUjwR
A user voiced the title to be the X-Men and said, “IF IT IS AN X-MEN MOVIE, USE X-MEN”.
If it is a movie about MUTANTS in General, and doesn't have a Sequel— Águia (@Batata28779592) July 20, 2022
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”.
If true, I have mixed thoughts on this. On the one hand, it feels stupid to change the X-Men title if it still focuses on the team. On the other, it already helps separate it from the Fox films & could work if set more on the mutant characters outside the hero & villain teams? pic.twitter.com/Gjb9fAzOwp— FrequentUser99 (@FrequentUser99) July 20, 2022
“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.
We will see cuz to me, it comes from a place of them being unsure about the title and just put in The Mutants cuz that's what Kevin had said at the end of SDCC 2019.— Terrell Thaddies (@TerrellThaddie1) July 20, 2022
I think that it works cuz of the way that the MCU is going
Most of the fans would agree with this!
Not my X-men.— Matt North (@TestTubeJesus) July 20, 2022
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.
