Disney+ Is Adding Another Fox X-Men Movie In November

By Russ Milheim Updated:
Disney+, X-Men, Wolverine

Disney+ has been one of Marvel Studios' biggest assets in the last year. The service provides a one-stop location for nearly all of its films, excluding the two MCU Spider-Man movies and The Incredible Hulk. It's not just MCU films either; former Fox films are on the service as well including several of the X-Men and Fantastic Four films.

This allows Marvel to expand the MCU in a massive way. This year has already seen four Disney+ shows air, including WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and What If...?Wanda's grief-stricken adventure even won the studio some Emmys.

Both of these features are only set to grow exponentially in the future, especially given Marvel's intense future slate scheduled over the next few years. November alone will be bringing a new Disney+ show, in the form of Hawkeye, as well as some more films for the service. But which ones?

Disney+ Brings X-Men & Marvel Announcements in November

In an official release, Disney revealed some of the projects arriving on Disney+ this November.

The first addition is X-Men: First Class on November 5. This is far from the first Fox movie to arrive on the service, with other titles such as X-Men, X-Men: Dark Phoenixand X-Men: Days of Future Past being among a selection already in Disney's library within the "Marvel Legacy" collection:

Then there's the Marvel Studios' 2021 Disney+ Day Special on November 12, which promises to unveil a plethora of announcements regarding Marvel's upcoming projects, including first looks at some of them—likely shows such as Ms. MarvelShe-Hulk, and Moon Knight.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will also arrive on the service on November 12, with Hawkeye premiering on November 24, 2021.


A Big Month for Marvel & Disney+

November is bound to be a huge month for Disney+. While X-Men: First Class might not be the biggest draw for the general audience, what will be is the addition of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the highly anticipated Marvel Studios special.

Unlike last year's Disney Investor Day that was streamed live, it seems like this year's event—specifically focused on Disney+ shows/events—will be pre-recorded. It's a shame as it being pre-recorded certainly makes it feel like less of a big deal instead of it being streamed to the world simultaneously in the waking hours.

As for the addition of more Fox/Marvel films, X-Men: First Class is the last film in the franchise that was missing, aside from the  New Mutants spinoff. The service also still does not have either of the Deadpool films.

If only Marvel Studios could catch that pesky Spider-Man, its collection could be complete.

Marvel's next original Disney+ project to air will be Hawkeye on November 24, 2021.
