Really the Worst X-Men Flick?: Watch The Ultimate Dark Phoenix Debate

Really the Worst X-Men Flick?: Watch The Ultimate Dark Phoenix Debate

It released the last movie in the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix as a direct sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse. Ororo Munroe/Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver (Evan Peters) receive less attention.

How did they come up with the way Sophie Turner was going to look at Dark Phoenix? Captain Marvel was not a ideal movie, but it definitely benefited from having two women working on the screenplay.

Since the colossal disappointment "X-Men: Apocalypse" (a movie so forgettable it seems that even the X-Men have left it behind), the formidable blue antihero has abandoned her former Mystique alias to go exclusively by Raven. And, sadly, it's the lack of those very emotional ties, that very history of character interaction, that hamstrings Dark Phoenix so badly.

On the final page of the issue, the Watcher concludes the tale, noting that the thing that makes humanity unique in the universe is its its capacity for triumph even in the face of death, saying "Jean Grey could have lived to become a god".

'So he was on wires for this scene, and we decided that we wanted to have the Macarena play on the sound system, and the stunt guys would kind of puppeteer him as a surprise.

And as an aside regarding the two patriarchs of the X-Men universe, it must be said that both Magneto and Professor X are ridiculously young considering the former was a grown man during the Holocaust. Because of his seizures, he occasionally becomes an accidental weapon of mass destruction himself, a fact that we learn caused him to do something awful to numerous other X-Men. Avengers: Endgame is finally out-of-the-way, as it is no longer in the top five. The bleakness works because it feels earned. There are also dystopian sci-fi elements here, although those are more common in the superhero genre.

Interestingly enough, Simon Kinberg - who wrote and directed "Dark Phoenix" - was the writer of "The Last Stand" and had hoped to give Jean's iconic comic storyline a more faithful adaptation.

X-Men Dark Phoenix is now playing in cinemas. As they leave to head toward an uncertain future, his daughter turns his grave marker on its side to make it an X instead of a cross.

Since her character is fighting between two personalities (Jean Grey and Dark Phoenix) throughout the film, Sophie Turner had to find ways to fully embody someone living with mental illness. There are real stakes and real loss, including a major member of the X-Men team.

Why he felt ready to direct and why he wasn't intimidated by the scale of the film. 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.
