Looks good! I'm kinda sad to see this generation of X men go, the current crop of actors they have are pretty good. Lawrence, Fassbender and McAvoy have great chemistry. Hopefully it's a worthy sendoff and is closer to First Class and Days of Future Past than Apocalypse.

Looking forward to this one a lot. One last hurrah for the franchise, I guess, before it all goes back over to Marvel. Glad that Charles and Eric are still taking a central role, I kind of expected them to be somewhat sidelined after the end of Apocalypse.

It does seem the really great costumes from the end of Apoc have vanished though.

I would not have called them "really great" costumes. More bulky and wierd.

Best xmen costumes so far have been in deadpool movies


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

Nope I just hate the character. Likely see this on the big screen.

No one knows for sure at the moment, though I think it's really unlikely that the MCU will recruit the current lineup to join their multiverse. We're probably looking at a full on reboot with all new talent once Disney absorbs Fox. So yeah, this is probably going to be the last X-Men movie for this particular group.

I would assume a new cast, given that they likely want to weave the X-men into Phase 4, the current cast would kinda clash given how many world-ending threats they've had to stop that don't mesh very well with the current timeline of the MCU.

An easy way to bring it up is once they reverse the Thanos snap, an unexpected side-effect that it brings about is a sudden increase in mutants in the human population.

I really struggle to follow the X men films, didn't the other Jean do the Dark Pheonix thing already?

I have to say, whilst some of the films have been enjoyable I'd rather just watch all the early 90s cartoon series over again than sit through most of them.


“Good people are quick to help others in need, without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. The wicked will believe they are fighting for good, but when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need. And yet Evil is quick to condemn, vilify and attack. For Evil, proof isn’t needed to bring harm, only hatred and a belief in the cause.”

I'll probably see this either way, but in the age of cosmic MCU, I never expected this Dark Phoenix to be even more grounded and small scale than the last one. Seems like a misstep.

Sadly, as good as Fassbender has been, it’s true he just goes from good to evil in every movie. Which...gets old.

And @Morden; don’t remember, do you have something against Deadpool? If you like the old comics, the first one works. The second one is so damn good that it’s bad (doesn’t grasp the character, but is an incredible movie-his trailer w/Celine Dion says it all).

I would have liked the comic accurate costumes that Apocalypse ended with. Although that movie’s ending was awful because “Jean had to be all powerful”!! The only downside X-Men as a collective whole suffers from in EVERY media is that everything is all about Jean Grey. Always.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

The Phoenix retcon is one of the worst, IMO and really has nothing to do with the appeal of the original story. I like where they're going with this, even if I have little faith in the final product.

Then again, the X-Men franchise as a whole, as much as I love it, has to be one of the least tonally consistent properties out there. Trying to explain the details of any of their classic stories to a normal person is a quick trip to the loony bin.

I don't like the comic character of Deadpool and never did - I hear its true to the source material so i have zero interest in very watching it. So I don't.

Jean is the central goal of the male characters in Clairmont land IIRC

Yes, it was bad. This one will be slightly less bad, but still bad.

I look forward to the MCU finally doing an x-men movie that doesn't mostly suck ass, as nearly all of them have.

The chic who plays Jean Grey is really unattractive. Ms Bloaty McFace. The previous older Jean Grey was smoking hot. I can't stand to even look at this younger one.

I really dislike these X-Men movies. They were cool for a bit, but they just suck now. All over the place too. And I am really over Jennifer Lawrence. Not that I was really ever into her playing Mystique anyway. The vast majority of the cast blows. I can't wait till they are all re-casted by Marvel.

Dear Marvel; please go a different route with X-Men getting folded into your cinematic universe; go Ultimate X-Men. Wolverine is borderline evil who would leave Cyclops for dead in order to bang Jean, Xavier has no qualms about mentally vegetating people if he feels it’s justified, and Magneto is a brutal SOB. Throw in a Cyclops willing to kill if necessary, Blob who is a cannibal, and a Nightcrawler who doesn’t know right from wrong and kidnaps people...Ok, that last one might be extreme. But gimme the rest!

That would be an interesting contrast against the Avengers. Also give them a better basis for Deadpool's (occasional) existence in their universe.

Not only is that a horrible idea, but there's probably an as close to zero without actually being zero percent chance it would every happen for an MCU incarnation of the X-Men.

There's also probably a reason the Ultimate universe is essentially no more*, and it isn't just because the core base/nostalgia group of Marvel '616' people want nothing to do with it.

(Yes, technically in universe, it does actually still exist! Which is funny, because some day, a smaller 'new' core base/nostalgia crew might get to clamor for its return too!)

Or...let’s have the first MCU X-Men movie be an adaptation of Fatal Attractions, where Magneto removes Wolverine’s adamantium. The movie ends with Xavier mind-wiping Magneto, setting up for an MCU event with the creation/birth of Onslaught. Brings the X-Men in with a heavy story, followed by a major MCU event.

Maybe?

It is still a *very* convoluted story, even if you try to pare it down to its essentials.

The MCU might just have some 'Event' which triggers the X-Gene, and then we're off and running.

And one of the best Ultimate comics origins was the one for the FF, which I think the last FF movie cribbed from?

Probably safe to re-use it as it is so good AND no one actually saw that movie...
