    Default X-Men: Dark Phoenix Movie Speculation and News

    May as well get the ball rolling with the thread for the next core X-Film. As we all know by now, the next film is apparently subtitled Dark Phoenix, and is scheduled for release on November 2, 2018.

    CBR's full release.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Ron White says you can't fix stupid. I beg to differ. Stupid will usually sort itself out, it's just a matter of making sure you're not close enough to become collateral damage.

    My wish list

    Professor X
    Moira (Still has 1 film left on contract)

    Cyclops
    Beast
    Storm
    Nightcrawler
    Jubilee
    Angel
    Monet

    Dark Phoenix

    If the idea of the movie is centered around Jean trying to change the fate she had in the original timeline, then it could work.

    Ooh! Cool news

    Yeah, I know people are sick of Phoenix at this point or whatever but, dangit, I'd been waiting for the Phoenix do be right for literal decades and that scene in X-Men: Apocalypse was well worth the wait, so I'm glad that they're continuing that plot thread. Hopefully they're really taking the Apocalypse reactions to heart and will double down on the newer, younger cast.

    Except nobody remembers that timeline except Wolverine, who we know isn't going to be in this movie.

    I don't think this movie can work thematically, there isn't enough Cyclops/Jean romance set-up and nobody cares enough about any of the new young X-Men Apocalypse mutants to give high stakes.

    Really hope Jean's character gets some shine before everything hits.

    Isn't Angel meant to be dead?

    He also seemly died in a plane explosion in the original horsemen story. But he came back.

    They already established that he had a healing factor in The Last Stand, so that makes for an easily explainable return.

    Well that would work for me. Angel should get a chance at being an X-man. I still doubt it will happen. X-films typically kill minor henchmen characters, and they will probably want to bring in some new mutant characters.

    Three possibly awesome X-Men movies in one year. I have a reason to stay alive a bit longer now.
    I expect New Mutants to be good since the writer/director loves them and knows their history. Deadpool should be good because, well, Ryan Reynolds. Dark Phoenix is the real question mark here. How much of the Saga will they be able to use? I'm hoping for Mastermind and a new Hellfire Club to be responsible for twisting Jean's mind. The Shi'ar are out completely unless Fox wants to take the X-Men down the GotG route... which I think would be a mistake. I just hope Jean divests herself of the Dark Phoenix personality and 'kills' it at the end. I certainly don't want Jean to 'die' at the end, just cleansed. Hell, maybe the Dark Phoenix personality surviving can lead into Sinister and Maddie... and Inferno! I'll stop fanboying now.

    Despite all the red flags that should be concerning Fox, I'm still trying to remain optimist about the Dark Phoenix film. I would hope they would at least try to stretch it out to two films, but I'm not sure they would go down that route. I can't help but be disappointed by the fact that they are jumping right into the Dark Phoenix as opposed to establishing Jean more as a character. Even in the original trilogy we got to see Jean on the side of good for two films before loosing it in the third, here it seems we're going straight from reintroduction to the character, to her being evil. I know this is all premature speculation, as we know next to nothing about the film other then release date, but hopefully when Fox divulges more info at some point, it'll make me more optimistic.
