Will Chris Pine play Cyclops in the MCU’s X-Men movies?
It’s pretty obvious that Chris Pine would make a beautiful and amazing Cyclops, but will he be playing the role in any future movies?
For now, the answer is no. Marvel has not revealed any plans to bring X-Men into the Marvel films.
While that is a possibility, we have yet to hear any such news. We also don’t know if Chris Pine showed any interest in the role or if it was even offered to him in the first place.
Well, we can always have hope!
It is already established that he can wear the look as well as anyone else. Hopefully, the manufacturers take fan requests seriously and get there!
We will keep you posted on developments. Until then, our fingers are crossed!
