With the Disney-Fox deal closing soon, people are wondering how soon Marvel Studios can begin developing movies with their newly-acquired Fox characters. Well, according to Kevin Feige; it’s not as quick as some people online have been claiming.
Kevin Feige was on Variety’s Playback podcast, and revealed that they’ll be able to start within the next six months.
Has Feige received the go-ahead to start developing stories based on Fox-owned Marvel properties? "No but we've been told it's looking very, very good and could happen in the first six months of next year."

This means the people claiming there will be some kind of X-Men hint in Avengers: Endgame or a Doctor Doom post-credits stinger don’t really know what they’re talking about. If Marvel Studios can’t even begin to start developing things until the first half of 2019, we’re probably not going to start seeing hints of the Fox characters in the MCU until 2020 at the earliest.
