Kevin Bacon Ready for Marvel Cinematic Universe Debut


Key Takeaways:
* Kevin Bacon has shown interest in making his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut.
* Bacon previously appeared in X-Men: First Class, which was not part of the MCU.
* Marvel Studios is open to introducing older characters from non-MCU Marvel films.
* Bacon might reprise his role as Sebastian Shaw if Marvel decides to make a new X-Men movie.

Kevin Bacon Eager for MCU Debut

Famed actor Kevin Bacon has shown enthusiasm about making his debut in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU), despite being part of the non-MCU X-Men: First Class movie. In an interview with Inverse, Bacon explained his eagerness for a role in the MCU utilizing the concept of the Multiverse.

A Multiverse Potentially Expanding Marvel’s Character Pool

Marvel’s recent release Spider-Man: No Way Home highlighted the studio’s willingness to reintroduce older characters into the current MCU. This new development opens the doors for many stars, who were part of Marvel’s extended non-MCU universe, to potentially reprise their roles.

Bacon, who portrayed the villain Sebastian Shaw in X-Men: First Class, expressed his interest in this possibility by saying, “I was in one side of the Marvel Universe. Do I still have an opportunity to get into the other side? It’s a multiverse, right? I love that stuff.”

While Marvel Studios has not yet confirmed whether Bacon will return as Sebastian Shaw in the upcoming X-Men movie, the actor’s enthusiasm and the studio’s track record suggest this may be a possibility.

X-Men: First Class – A Logical Starting Point for MCU’s X-Men

Marvel has demonstrated its openness to bringing back older actors and characters. Examples include Hugh Jackman’s upcoming reprisal of his role as Wolverine in Deadpool & Wolverine and Spider-Man: No Way Home’s use of villains from earlier Spider-Man movies. If Marvel decides to make a new X-Men movie within the MCU, X-Men: First Class offers a logical starting point thanks to its detailed exploration of the characters and dynamics within the mutant world.

X-Men: First Class primarily focuses on the relationship between Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr (aka Magneto), two pivotal characters from the X-Men world. It shows their transition from friends to enemies and Xavier’s establishment of an institute for mutants to learn and control their powers. While it didn’t include popular mutants like Wolverine, Jean Grey, and Cyclops, X-Men: First Class serves as a vital foundation for understanding the mutant world and humans’ perception of it.

Bacon’s Sebastian Shaw in Future X-Men Movie?

Given Kevin Bacon’s evident readiness and Spider-Man: No Way Home’s recent introduction of former villains, the idea of Bacon revisiting his role as Sebastian Shaw might not be farfetched. This would align with Marvel’s current trend, and fans may soon see Bacon as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Presently, X-Men: First Class is available on Disney+. As Marvel Studios continues to exploit the Multiverse concept, fans are hoping to see more familiar faces from non-MCU movies, and perhaps even Kevin Bacon, making their debut on the MCU stage. This represents an exciting new era for Marvel fans, marking a merger of the past, present, and future of Marvel’s expanded universe.
