X-Men star Lucas Till would love to be a part of the extended Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Lucas Till first made his appearance in X-Men movies via X-Men: First Class (2011), playing the part of Alex Summers, the sibling of Scott/Cyclops, one of the leading characters who had featured in almost every X-film till then.
He starred in a couple more movies in the role—X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)—before his character bit the dust, a decision that was commonly thought to have been made looking at Till’s career path.
The star had just landed a starring role in CBS’s revival of MacGyver, and the idea of freeing from the strenuous schedule of shoots long enough to feature in a Hollywood blockbuster seemed impractical.

That doesn’t mean he’s going to rule out the possibility, however. Speaking in a new interview with Reel Talker, the actor admitted he would love to reprise the role, even if he’s not entirely sure how his return would fit into the story.
I would, yes. Hands down, I would love to. But storytelling wise, I don’t know how that would work. I’m dead.
That’s not much of a concern these days. With the prospect of the multiverse, Marvel could follow the Katie Cassidy on Arrow route and determine that if they wanted the actor enough, the latest Havok could easily be an alternative Earth version of the old one, who’s got the same face and looks, but not the same fate.
This may feel unlikely—but the last few weeks are evidently unprecedented in that regard. Last week’s episode of WandaVision, viewers were surprised by the emergence of Evan Peters, who starred as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019).

MCU‘s own Quicksilver, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson had previously featured in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)—and was dead in the actual timeline. His sibling, Scarlet Witch, is the main protagonist of WandaVision, and her reality-warping abilities are creating havoc in the MCU as she copes with the grief of Vision’s demise.
Meanwhile, Till has been quite occupied away from the superhero scene. Besides MacGyver, he starred in Monster Trucks (2016) and Son of the South (2020). Moreover, he lent a voice in the CBS animated show, Michael Jackson’s Halloween.
