Is the name "X-Men" outdated? Marvel Studios' Executive Vice President of Production Victoria Alonso thinks so. During an interview about Captain Marvel's home video release, Alonso is asked about the future of the X-Men at Disney and goes on an interesting tangent.

"I don't know where the future is going," Alonso told Nuke the Fridge. "Its funny that people call it the X-Men... there's a lot of female superheroes in that X-Men group; I think it's outdated."

Alonso has worked as a producer on all of Marvel Studios' films, originally handling visual effects but has now grown to oversee the complete production of each film.

"I don't know where it's going to go. They just now have joined," she continued. "They have a movie coming out soon under that banner, their last film. We'll see what time will tell."
