Following the drop of the new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, fans were quick to anticipate Miles Morales, the X-Men, and Fantastic Four being introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In the trailer, Nick Fury gets in touch with Spider-Man and introduces him to Jake Gyllenhaal’s character, Qunetin Beck aka Mysterio. When the two first meet and shake hands, Mysterio tells Peter, “We could have used someone like you on my world.” That’s when Nick Fury explains, “Beck is from Earth just not ours. The Snap tore a hole in our dimension.” Spider-Man then questions, “You’re saying there’s a multiverse?”
Fans were quick to jump onto the idea that the trailer fully embraces the idea of the Marvel Multiverse introduced in Doctor Strange with Dormammu and the Dark Dimension. Many fans were excited about the prospect of Miles Morales joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe along side the X-Men and the Fantastic Four.
Wait Marvel officially has a multiverse…that means…in a few years…we might have a live action Miles Morales movie…

Spider-Man: Far From Home is going to be an extremely important movie for the next phase of Marvel Films. Multiverse sets up not only Miles Morales but a way to bring in Fantastic Four, X-Men and big villains. Let's Go#spiderman #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/hujyJKevxM

Some were even claiming that Miles Morales is already present in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
I bet Miles Morales is responsible for the Iron Man graffiti. And the fact Mysterio used the word “Multiverse”. I’m geeked. We prob getting a Miles Morales movie soon.

One user specifically pointed out that Miles Morales is referenced in an Easter egg from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Others began brainstorming just how Miles Morales should be introduced into the MCU.
If the MCU is really gonna jump on this Spider-Man Multiverse wagon it needs to go one of two ways: throw Tom Holland into the animated multiverse COOL WORLD style, or have a 5 years later Miles Morales show up in the MCU played by his voice actor Shameik Moore in live action pic.twitter.com/KQl5kj6awN

Peter becomes new Iron man and miles morales pops up at the end of the movie to be the new Spider-Manz

While most people seemed excited about the prospect of Morales joining the MCU, others were much more hesitant.
Me knowing that if the multiverse thing was real, the MCU would butcher Miles Morales but everybody wouldn’t care since it’s the MCU: pic.twitter.com/MJ20wZ7ZBz

I am not a fan of Miles Morales being in MCU, cause.. Peter will be replaced by him and dead…. well one day he might, that is why I am not prepared of him coming to MCU.. #SpiderManFarFromHome

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige did indicate the MCU would feature different incarnations of Marvel’s characters while also introducing completely new characters that you might not have heard of unless you are a comic book fan following the release of Avengers: Endgame.
Do you think this is how Miles Morales, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four will be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe? What do you think about the full-on embrace of the multiverse? Do you think this is how Kevin Feige will move forward with the MCU? What do you think this means for the MCU?
