So before we start let me warn that if you haven't seen Captain Marvel there will be some spoilers for the movie.
So we know the X-Men and Fantastic Four are now owned by Disney and going to be appearing sooner or later in the MCU. It is easy to figure how the F4 may make their appearance but what about the X-Men? Never once have we ever heard the term 'Mutant' before. In fact the Inhumans in Agents of Shield seem to have taken the role of oppressed minorities with super powers role.
Now in Civil War Vision says that since Tony began his journey the number of enhanced individuals (anyone with superhuman powers) has increased. Now before Iron Man the general public have been ignorant of enhanced humans until the events leading to the first Avengers film revealed the existence of superheroes.
But in the comics and the X-Men films it is established that mutants have been around for centuries. Growing in number with each generation. So where are they in the MCU? Why haven't they been mentioned? How will they appear in the MCU? The answer may have been given to us in Age of Ultron.
As we all know Wanda and Pietro were mutants until recently when they once more suffered a case of 'Origin Retcon' in the comics. In the MCU they were humans given their powers through experiments performed on them by Hydra using Loki's scepter which is actually the mind stone.
But as we find out they are not the only ones, as we find out in Captain Marvel, Carol got her powers from energy taken from the space stone. This could be how we are going to get mutants.
So lets say something happens in Endgame that causes Earth to get hit with some Infinity energy that causes a large number of the population to spontaneously develop powers and abilities. Of course this would mean they would have to alter the origins of certain characters like Magneto, Xavier and Logan if they have them in the MCU at all.
While this would be a serious change to the mutants history compared to the comics it would be the best way to bring them into the MCU.

"When you're small, energy's compressed, so you have the force of a 200-pound man behind a fist a 100th of an inch wide. You're like a bullet. You punch too hard, you kill someone. Too soft, it's a love tap. In other words, you have to know how to punch."
