Dark Phoenix Discussion (Spoilers): Truly The Worst X-Men Movie Ever?

Dark Phoenix Discussion (Spoilers): Truly The Worst X-Men Movie Ever?

Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.

"The movie is about Jean evolving from this character into something else, and that's what Sophie did". At the beginning of Dark Phoenix, set in 1992, the X-Men are ascendant, until Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is overcome by the eternal cosmic power of the Phoenix Force during an outer space rescue mission. The inclusion of a nonsensical and unnecessary alien subplot slows things down enormously, and there is little in the way of catharsis or a sense of an ending here - if it is to be the end of this iteration of Professor X, Magneto, Cyclops and the like, they've gone out less with a bang than a whimper.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. It is said to be the last chapter of X-Men series.

How tough was it to get Michael Fassbender to come back? "Dark Phoenix" is as far from "new" as a movie can be. "Dark Phoenix" wastes Jessica Chastain by writing her as a by-the-numbers antagonist named Vuk, who is completely forgettable.

First there is the infamous 2006 film "X-Men: The Last Stand", of which this movie is practically a remake.

News on Halo Infinite has been coming in a drip feed, and we're honestly not expecting to see the game launch until at least 2020. Even more gameplay footage is expected to be revealed during Microsoft's E3 conference, so tune in at 9pm on June 9.

However, it looks like the company's new operating system could be called " Oak OS ", as revealed by Globaltimes today. What this may mean for Huawei, though, is that the company may have to create its own app store - not an easy feat.

Did he always know he wanted to end the movie the way it ends?

Dark Phoenix will be released in theaters on June 7, 2019.

However, I don't think that could have been the reason the film was reshot. His caretaker relationship with Professor X is the movie's unsung highlight: We know from their interactions in previous films that Professor X rescued Wolverine from himself and helped him find a goal, even though the cynical and surly lug never wanted to admit it. With the future of this team hanging in the balance of Disney's recent acquisition of the studio, one can only hope that the world of the X-Men will triumphantly rise from the ashes.

It's a character study to end all character studies, a flawless send-off to this version of the Wolverine character that ties up the underlying story of the "X-Men" series in an equally cathartic way. And Dafne Keen gives a rage-filled and emotional performance as Wolverine clone/daughter Laura, aka X23.

When we had a chance to speak with Kinberg himself earlier this week to talk about the how Dark Phoenix evolved during the production process, he was candid about the parallels between his original ending and those of other Marvel movies, but pointed out that the reshoots took place long before the public had a chance to see Captain Marvel.
