Will There Be Any More ‘X-Men’ Movies After ‘Dark Phoenix’?

39;Dark Phoenix' closes latest 'X-Men' cycle

As most of you know, Dark Phoenix is most likely the last X-Men film with the current cast and adapts the famous "Dark Phoenix Saga" comics arc, with Sophie Turner filling the role of Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix while Jessica Chastain plays a mysterious and otherworldly character.

Sophie Turner starrer Dark Phoenix opened in the cinemas this week. In the context of the modern media landscape, this could be forgivable, but because of the wealth of stories that the X-Men offer, this lack of originality becomes a grave transgression. "I loved the way that Civil War had its big action action set piece where everyone's facing off more towards the end of the second act rather than in the third, so that after that huge battle, you're left with Winter Soldier, Captain America, and Iron Man". When five X-Men - Colossus, Magik, Namor, Emma Frost, and Cyclops - are imbued with the Phoenix Force's powers in 2012's line-wide event Avengers vs. X-Men, the so-called Phoenix Five initially use their new powers to turn Earth into a paradise but soon threaten the world with tyranny.

How tough was it to get Michael Fassbender to come back?

Dark Phoenix is now in theaters.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix suffers from a rehashed plot, as The Last Stand already covered this, so I have no reason why Simon Kinberg and Fox chose to make this. Civil War came out in May 2016 and Dark Phoenix didn't start filming until June 2017. Longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner - who's been credited on every X-project since 2000's origins movie - actively disowned DP in a now-deleted tweet.

Why he wanted to create Genosha in the film. That backstory is embedded in Jackman's and Stewart's textured and heartbreaking performances, discernible even to one hasn't seen a single other "X-Men" movie. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" revolves around mutants including Professor Xavier Charles and Magneto divided over whether to save or destroy Jean Grey as her powers get dangerously out of control. Unfortunately, the film is boring in spots, especially after such a great classic X-Men-like opening scene with the rescue mission. No, the problem with this series has always been the characters running around the monsters - the human element that somehow takes up so much of the filmmakers' concern and yet remains so very boring. If you want to say a proper goodbye to this series of "X-Men" movies, you're better off spending your time on "Logan" again than "Dark Phoenix" for the first time.
