The Marvels Producer Explained How They Used Monica Rambeau to Bring the X-Men Into the MCU!

In a very recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, producer Mary Livano explained the mid-credit scenes for those who were confused about what was going on. The Marvels, as everyone knows, introduced some new faces to the roster, namely Binary and Beast. And Beast’s appearance, in particular, caused a stir since it indicated that the X-Men are finally coming on board in this mad multiversal universe. Thus, when asked about how the team arrived at the said decision, Livano revealed,

“The notion that Monica ends up in an alternate universe with the hope that it could tie in with the X-Men was something I always had on my to-do list.”

She further explained how they explored some plot points from comics that intrigued them, and one among them was Monica beating Carol and gaining the powers in an alternate universe,

“I love how in the comics, Carol Danvers as Binary spends some time with the X-Men in space, and I love the idea that in an alternate universe, it was Maria who beat Carol Danvers to the hangar back during the events of Captain Marvel, so she won and got those powers. That was something that was always really intriguing.”

And that’s where they drew inspiration to reach the aforementioned conclusion. People are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the X-Men and the myriad of new possibilities it will open. Fans can’t wait to see what comes next.

Another Storyline That Contributed to the Making of the Mid-Credit Scene

The Marvels team wasn’t set on one idea exclusively, they explored a bunch of different plot points especially from the comics to maintain the authenticity of the beloved characters. Another storyline that intrigued the producer while making the film, to keep the characters’ spirits unhampered was,

“Again, in Kelly Sue DeConnick’s run of Captain Marvel, there’s an incredible storyline where Carol essentially time travels and gives herself powers in the past, rather than the male Captain Marvel. That was always a really mind-bending, beautiful storyline that we wanted to bring to life in some way. So, we tried to capture that spirit with this and of course, it hearkens back to their conversation on the porch, when Carol goes to visit Maria.”

Last but not least, she herself is a fan, and bringing the X-Men on board was something she had desperately wanted for a long time, just like the rest. Now that it has been done so effortlessly, she can’t wait to plan what’s next. She said,

“But I’m so delighted that Kevin [Feige] and folks were stoked about the idea of Binary and the fact that she does fit into the X-Men universe. As a fan, I was just absolutely floored and delighted that we got to get Beast in there and have a big old X, right behind Binary. It was bananas.”

Having Kelsey Grammer return as Beast was truly something fans had been eagerly anticipating for a very long time. Consequently, they can’t wait to see what’s next that will catch them by surprise.

The Marvels is now in theaters!
