A little over four months ago I watched the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson. For the most part I really enjoyed the live-action Beauty and the Beast for its beautiful cinematography and its dazzling songs and characters. Then a couple of days ago I decided to watch the classic animated version of Beauty and the Beast for the first time and I can honestly say, I was blown away.
Disney makes amazing animated films (The Lion King, Tarzan, Mulan, etc.) and Beauty and the Beast is not an exception in the slightest. I was riveted as the movie told the classic fairy tale of how Belle learned to love the cursed Beast in such an impeccable fashion.
And the songs. Oh my goodness, the songs had me singing and smiling and covered me in chills. I LOVE Disney songs for all of the above reasons and Beauty and the Beast has some rather magnificent melodies to listen to.
By the time end came around with “Beauty and the Beast” playing I was sitting in a pool of tears. I don’t know what came over me (it was probably Disney magic) but I just couldn’t hold the waterworks in. I’m a sucker for love stories and I love happy endings and so this was a double whammy.

Since Disney bought Fox my mind has been racing with the possibilities of a X-Men/Avengers crossover and even though that might not completely come to fruition I definitely think that Marvel Studios should take this opportunity to do what they did with Spider-Man and bring some awesome X-Men superheroes to the MCU. But which X-Men characters? While I don’t know much about the X-Men there are a few characters that I really do like and that I think would be very cool additions to the MCU. I’m going to list them here and I hope you enjoy!
I don’t know much about Beast but I do know this, he’s always been one of my favorite X-Men characters. His skills are very, very impressive and I think it would be really interesting to see this character become part of the MCU. I mean, can you imagine Spider-Man or Black Panther conversing with this incredibly unique looking character? It would definitely be interesting to watch. And another thing that makes this so perfect is that in certain comic books he becomes part of The Avengers so that’s just another excuse to bring him into the MCU.
Jean Grey is one of the most prominent X-Men characters (I know this because even though I don’t know anything about the X-Men I know who Jean Grey is) and I think it would be rather exciting to bring her to the MCU. Now, some of her abilities are rather similar to Scarlet Witch so that might not be a great idea to bring her into the fold but I think it would still be awesome to see her fighting alongside The Avengers.
