Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are on red alert after new Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney At Law dropped an X-Men easter egg. 

Chatter about an X-Men reboot first started last year when it was reported that filming for The Mutants is underway at Marvel Studios, with Marvel CCO Kevin Feige producing.

The project is still very much under wraps, and at the time of writing no plot details, writers, directors or cast members have been revealed.

While the film does have a tentative title, the studio could decide to move away from The Mutants as development continues.

The decision to title the film as The Mutants, rather than refer to the X-Men, could potentially be because the previous name for the superhero team has been considered to not be inclusive.

And while many wait with bated breath for the superhero reboot, the MCU has appeared to introduced Wolverine in the second episode of She-Hulk as a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it easter egg.

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed on a web browser that there were two very interesting ‘Related Articles’ listed down the side.

One was an explainer titled, ‘Why there is a giant statue of a man sticking out of the ocean’, making reference to the end of the Eternals.

However, the other more notable headline was, ‘Man fights with metal claws in bar brawl’ – can you guess who that was about? Most likely, Mr James Howlett, aka Wolverine.

Of course the tidbit went down a treat for fans, who took to social media to share their excitement over the MCU morsel.

One penned: "She Hulk is FEEDING us with Easter eggs! Wolverine in the MCU…"

"He hulk ep 2. Easter eggs. Wolverine mentioned in ep 2. A man fights with metal claws in bar brawl and hulk is going to zakar. World war hulk movie loading," another excitedly penned.

A third remarked: "Wait am i the only who noticed the references of eternal and wolverine in she hulk attorney at law episode 2".

"Wait a minute.... is it about WOLVERINE," a stunned viewer questioned.

It’s not the first time that the MCU has dropped easter eggs nodding to Wolverine. In fact in Moon Knight, viewers were introduced to Madripoor, an X-Men hotspot.

Not only that, it also introduced us to the Princess Bar, one of Wolverine's favourite watering holes. Perhaps it was here that he aired out his claws and got in a scrap?
