The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has once again left audiences on the edge of their seats with the latest post-credits scene from “The Marvels”. Fans witness Monica Rambeau’s awakening in an unfamiliar reality, hinting at a rich tapestry of alternate universes just waiting to be explored.
The New Reality: A Different Take on Familiar Faces
In a surprising twist, we are greeted by a CGI-rendered Beast, originally portrayed by Kelsey Grammer, who elucidates Monica’s sudden shift to this reality, postulating a tear in space-time as the culprit.
This cameo not only thrills fans but also stitches the narrative closer to the X-Men mythos, with the mention of Charles Xavier, hinting at his significant influence in this universe.
“All we know is that Binary found you. My theory? You somehow crossed through a tear in space-time. You are now in a reality parallel to your own. Which, of course, is impossible.”
Setting the Stage for the X-Men’s Arrival
This scene is a game-changer, presenting a reality where Maria Rambeau is not Captain Marvel but the potent hero Binary.

This creative decision deviates from the known paths and paves the way for intriguing possibilities within the MCU. With the X-Men seemingly established in Monica’s new world, we’re left to wonder if this universe is a continuation of the utopian timeline from the X-Men’s cinematic past or perhaps a new branch altogether.
A Multiverse of Possibilities
“The Marvels” does more than entertain; it intricately sets the foundation for an X-Men integration that’s both nostalgic and forward-looking. As we anticipate Avengers: Secret Wars to conclude this saga, we may be witnessing the dawn of a new era for the X-Men within the MCU, promising a fresh start in Phase 7.
