The Fox era of X-Men comes to a lackluster end after almost 20 years as Dark Phoenix is a boring, lifeless rehash of prior X-Men movie plots and character motivations.
Jean Grey’s latent powers are unleashed in what is most likely the final chapter of the Fox X-Men saga, Dark Phoenix, arriving in June this summer.
The sixth entry in the X-Men series and making the rebooted series a trilogy, X-Men: Apocalypse is solid but never does anything that makes it anything besides just “OK”.
Tons of comic book news this week including the return of Howard the Duck and possibly casting for Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Jean Gray and Cyclops, the next projects for Chris Pratt and Keanu Reeves and much more in the News Shotgun.
Combining the best of the old trilogy with the Wolverine/First Class movies, Days of Future Past is a blast of mutant awesomeness as Wolverine travels back to the 70’s to stop a dark future from occurring.
After the disaster that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Logan is back in an adaptation of one of his most acclaimed stories as he heads to Japan at the request of an old acquaintance and becomes caught between ninjas, Yakuza thugs, mutant assassins, all while at half his normal healing. Is this the Wolverine movie we’ve all been waiting for?
He’s the best there is at what he does, but what he does best isn’t very nice.
It seems like every day someone new is getting added to the roster of the first class of X-Men.
