If the rumors are to be believed (and at this point it seems like a safe bet), Disney is about to purchase 21st Century Fox for a whole lot of money. And while that means a lot of things for a whole host of Fox franchises, for many Marvel fans, the only thing that matters is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be gaining some key new characters.

From Wolverine to Deadpool to Doctor Doom, here are the iconic Marvel characters you can expect to see make their MCU debut if a deal goes down between Fox and Disney…

In related news, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently emphasized that Phase 4 of the MCU will be a significant departure from the prior films. “22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before—intentionally,” he told Vanity Fair. That seems like the perfect opportunity to welcome the X-Men and Fantastic Four into the MCU and make this Marvel Universe whole.
