Kevin Bacon wants to bring the villain he played in X-Men: First Class to the MCU.

Kevin Bacon wants to go back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He played Sebastian Shaw in X-Men: First Class, which came out in 2011.

Bacon was asked about joining the MCU in an interview with Inverse. The actor responded, “I was in one part of the Marvel Universe. Do you think I can get a job? On the other side? It’s a lot of worlds. I like that.” Is it possible for me to still not be clear who would return from Fox’s Marvel movies and who would not?
