Following one fateful Instagram comment from a Marvel Studios colleague, Michael Waldron, who co-wrote Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, might have been outed as the writer for an X-Men project.
When Waldron was discussing friend Jennifer Kaytin’s Instagram post, in which she responded with a response that appeared to imply he was working on an X-Men project, the news came out.
