X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Looks better than Captain Marvel

I liked the trailer very much. Sure it looks similar to Last Stand, but that movie crammed too many good ideas into a short 100 minute runtime, not to mention heavy studio interference and aftermaths of Singer’s departure.

This movie seems focused only on Dark Phoenix, looks very character driven, and much more interesting than the bland and mediocre Apocalypse. The trailer was also edited very well, so much so that it turned my opinion from “Meh, I guess I’ll see it out of curiosity” to “Looks exciting, I’m looking forward to it!” Of course there is the possibility of me being completely wrong, but that’s the case with every trailer. And yes I agree with Zarius that it looks better than Captain Marvel. Now that looks like “Meh, I guess I’ll see it out of curiosity”

By the way, whatever happened to “New Mutants”?

I personally really enjoyed the trailer. Definitely 10x more excited for this than Captain Marvel, but I'm still looking forward to both. Really interested in how this can be fan edited into the X-Men Continuity Series too. Smile

According to a quick google search, it's supposed to be released on August 2nd this year, which would be almost 2 years since the trailer was released.

Trailer looks okay, seems to be exactly what a lot of people predicted which if you couldn't figure out, I'll tag it. 


Mystique is finally killed off. Seems Jlaw is getting her wish of exiting the franchise which is what it seemed she wanted to ever since post-DOPF. It was mostly implied in the first trailer, but almost completely confirmed here. If it doesn't happen though, I'd be very surprised.

Overall it seems almost beat-for-beat The Last Stand, which may not be a bad thing as it has room to improve. But heck it even has the same mobile-mutant-containment thing that Vinny Jones was kept in when Magneto breaks him out in X3. Seems like it's some kinda X-Men: Civil War with one side trying to kill her and the other to fix her. Could be interesting but I can already see the twist that Jessica Chastain is the Zemo of this movie, secretly influencing Jean (and others?) for her own agenda.

Bobson Dugnutt: That's certainly what it looks like from the trailer. But if what you guess turns out to be true, I would be very sad about that.


Not because I care about J-Law continuing -- she seems bored here, and if she wants out, that's fine. But killing off Mystique might destroy the very last thread of continuity that this series had. 

Yes, DoFP created an alternate timeline. For the most part, that's been a good thing. But I like to believe that some altered version of the events of X1 and X2 still happened, since they were good movies. If Mystique isn't even alive at the time of X1 and X2, I don't think I can believe any version of them happened anymore.

Of course, Kevin Feige is undoubtedly about to rewrite the whole timeline again, but as long as we're still in this cinematic universe with these recurring actors, I would like it if I didn't lose those two movies completely.

You may certainly be right, though. At this point, I'm hoping that it's a typical intentionally misleading trailer, and she winds up hospitalized -- even in a coma -- but still technically alive at the end.

I'm rather uninterested in this. Feeling basically the opposite of Zari and Masi, I think Captain Marvel looks much better (though I don't think there's much to gain from arbitrarily comparing the two films). I like Sophie Turner on Game of Thrones, but as Jean I am bored.

What I don't understand is why they didn't just let her go and replace her with Rebecca Romijn, who still looks similar now to how she did in 2000, and probably wouldn't look a day older under all of the blue makeup.

After all, this movie is set decades after "First Class". Most of the characters should be made up to look decades older than they did in the 1960s setting, and ideally a bit more like their counterparts from the original trilogy (for instance, subtle makeup effects to make James McAvoy look more like Patrick Stewart, etc), and there's no reason why Mystique shouldn't look like Rebecca Romijn's version by this point in the timeline.

Everyone would be happy that way. Jennifer Lawrence wouldn't be stuck in another movie she didn't want to be in, and audiences wouldn't be subjected to (probably) another phoned-in performance from her.

Seems like another Harrison Ford/Force Awakens death deal

The ironic thing about it is that Fox's X-Men movies are getting canceled anyway, so there's no need for Mystique to die for Jennifer Lawrence to avoid ever playing her again. This presumably wasn't known when the movie started production. I wonder if the story would be different if everyone had known?

To be honest I'm fine as long as it works in the movie. Harrison Ford would only play the character again if he was killed off, and it was beautifully written into the story. And Ford really gives it his all in that one. I really hope that similarly Mystique's death is written to complement the story well.
