Too many studio franchises are trying to correct its male-dominated history by scoring woke points that don't add up.
In a since-deleted tweet, Donner denied having a role in the making of 'Dark Phoenix,' 'Apocalypse' and 'The New Mutants.'
Fox bosses moved the release of 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' to better serve James Cameron's 'Alita: Battle Angel', according to a new report.
Ever since the X-Men: First Class reboot, the X-Men film franchise has revolved around three core characters — Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique. X-Men: Dark Phoenix executed its premise with much more finesse than the preceding film, but it has absolutely no idea how to utilise Magneto and Mystique in its story. X-Men: Dark Phoenix brings the current 20-year X-Men film series to a conclusion (as ownership of the franchise goes to Disney) as they face their greatest threat.
It looks like the X-Universe is set for a big reboot under the watchful eye of Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios.
“The end [of Dark Phoenix] changed a hell of a lot. The finale HAD to change," says James McAvoy.
Superhero fans determined to see the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have to wait a little longer for that moment.
Now that the houses of Fox and Disney have joined, superhero fans are now chomping at the bit to see the Marvel characters previously owned by Fox join their compadres owned by Disney.
The first trailer for the next chapter in the X-Men series has been unveiled, revealing that fans are going to have to deal with the loss of a major character.
