Is the name X-Men outdated? Will Marvel rename them for the MCU?

-Twitter has been ABLAZE today over Wegotthiscovered new clickbait article alleging that Marvel/Disney may drop the X-Men name for something more gender neutral.

-The claims come from a 2019 interview with Marvel Studios’ President of Physical, Post Production, VFX, and Animation, Victoria Alonso where she stated "“I don’t know where the future is going. It’s funny that people call it the X-Men, there’s a lot of female superheroes in that X-Men group, so I think it’s outdated."

-Fans are pointing out that The X-Men has been a general team name since the beginning with a strong female presence for majority of its run while others are pointing out that they could simply drop X-Men for something such as Generation X, X-Force, or Mutants.

-Since reclaiming the film rights to their once most popular title, Marvel is taking their time reintroducing the audience to the X-Men with no set date for a new film or how they'll be introduced into the MCU.
