Summary

  • Kelsey Grammer returns as Beast in The Marvels, teasing the future of the X-Men franchise in the MCU.
  • Monica has seemingly found herself in the X-Men universe, setting up crossover potential between the MCU and the Fox X-Men universe.
  • Beast’s appearance suggests he could return in Deadpool 3 and/or potentially have a role in Avengers: Secret Wars as the Multiverse Saga develops.

The Marvels features a major character debut in the MCU multiverse, one that carries some very exciting ramifications for the future of the franchise. As seen in the new MCU, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) joins forces with Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani) after their light-based powers become entangled. Fighting the Kree Supremeor Dar-Benn (Zawe Ashton) as she seeks to destroy other worlds for the sake of her own, the latest MCU offering is action-packed and lots of fun. However, one of its most exciting moments is focused on the return of a classic Marvel character and the tease of a whole new team entirely.

As seen at the end of The Marvels, Monica Rambeau sacrifices herself to repair a rift in the space-time continuum that was causing another reality to bleed into the primary 616 reality. However, Captain Marvel was unable to save Monica who subsequently found herself trapped in the wrong universe. As such, The Marvels’ post-credits scene saw Monica waking up in the presence of two new heroes, one of which is bound to generate all kinds of excitement from MCU fans concerning all that his appearance undoubtedly means for the future.

Waking up in a hospital bed, Monica found herself being cared for by none other than Hank McCoy’s Beast of the X-Men. Voiced by actor Kelsey Grammer who played Beast in Fox’s original trilogy of X-Men films, Beast’s brand-new appearance is incredibly exciting. The presence of Hank McCoy essentially acts as a major tease for all that Marvel Studios is planning not only for the rest of the Multiverse Saga, but also for their very own X-Men franchise which is currently in development.

Grammer’s return as Beast suggests that Monica is now in Fox’s X-Men universe. Furthermore, it seems Monica was taken to the X-Mansion as evidenced by the iconic “X”-shaped doors in the background combined with the classic X-Men themes from X2: X-Men United and Days of Future Past as confirmed by The Marvels‘ credits. This is very exciting considering the influx of multiversal incursions in the MCU, along with Deadpool 3 which is set to release in 2024.

When Beast Could Return In The MCU

Deadpool 3? Secret Wars?

As far as when the X-Men’s Beast might be seen again in the MCU, it seems very likely that he could return in Deadpool 3 which is rumored to feature several heroes from the Fox universe beyond Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Likewise, the MCU’s Multiverse Saga is set to culminate with Avengers: Secret Wars in 2027. If the movie is anything like the comics with its multiple incursions resulting in the end of the multiverse itself, it stands to reason that Hank McCoy’s Beast and his reality will likely be featured as well.
