In a new segment of an interview with TheHollywoodReporter, Avengers: Endgame screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely suggest they’d love to tackle the X-Men event House of M in the near future at Marvel Studios along with a nifty tidbit about how Nova almost appeared in Avengers: Infinity War that could be getting their own solo film soon.
While the duo have left Marvel behind (for now), McFeely does single out House of M as something that could interest him in the future.
“I think House of M would be awesome. But you’ve got to earn it,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The 2005 storyline saw the Scarlet Witch remake reality into one in which mutants such as the X-Men villain Magneto controlled the world. in the comic, the Avengers and X-Men must work to set reality back to the way it’s meant to be.
They also revealed there had been a desire to explore Nova in Avengers: Endgame.
THR: What was on that 60-page document you crafted before writing Infinity War and Endgame? Things like “Captain America catches Thor’s hammer”? Things bigger than that? Smaller?
MCFEELY: “Big and small. House of M.”
MARKUS: “House of M. I remember going through several scenarios of Nova. Thanos could come and kill all the Nova Corps, except one guy. Richard Rider, who then becomes … I think in that scenario he became the herald, kind of like the Hulk was [in Infinity War when he crashed into the Sanctum Santorum]. Someone who could come out and tell people. We had everything. Literally every variation we could think of or that was sitting there in the comics untapped. With absolutely no value placed next to them.”
MCFEELY: “We may have inherently said this is a five-star idea, this is a one-star idea, but we tried not to present that to the group.”
I think many are curious what the Scarlet Witch series on Disney+ titled WandaVision will actually cover and if it would attempt to tease House of M elements or be its own thing. An event like House of M would need to be directly tied to the X-Men, which Kevin Feige has said isn’t currently part of their five-year plan.
Concerning Nova, MCUCosmic recently revealed a rumor that a feature film focusing on the cosmic superhero is currently now in some stage of development at Marvel Studios. This could help bolster that previous claim.
