Watch This Before You See Dark Phoenix

    This summer, the superhero world will face the end of an era one that doesn't have anything to do with the Avengers. Fox's X-Men series is finally coming to a close with an adaptation of an iconic Marvel story: Dark Phoenix. Here are a few of the things you need to know before you see the last of the X-Men movies. And there are spoilers ahead! But it's spoilers from the trailer. Regardless, be forewarned!
    The Dark Phoenix Saga, as it's come to be known through years of reprints and adaptations, is perhaps the most famous and widely referenced storyline in the history of X-Men comics though it has often been taken very loosely when adapted to the screen.
    The setup for the story began in Uncanny X-Men #101 in 1976, with the X-Men embarking on a mission to space, during which Jean Grey encounters what seems to be a deadly solar flare. In that moment, instead of dying, she reaches the full potential of her Omega-level mutant powers, which allow her to transcend her corporeal form.
    Jean later returns to her body, though when she reunites with the X-Men she has a new look, a greatly enhanced set of powers, and the name "Phoenix." For a while, this became somewhat of a status quo in the X-Men comics, as Phoenix seemed to be able to hold back her own darker urges and maintain a power level that allowed her to remain a valuable ally to the X-Men. But that wouldn't last for long.
    The Dark Phoenix saga proper was kicked off three years later in Uncanny X-Men #129, when creators Chris Claremont and John Byrne decided it was time to truly activate Jean Grey's full potential, not just as an incredibly powerful being, but as a supervillain.
    This begins with the evil mutant Mastermind dominating Jean's mind, projecting visions into her head that eventually lead her to assume the evil identity of "The Black Queen" and rebel against the X-Men. Jean briefly joins the Hellfire Club before realizing the deception that put her there, strikes down Mastermind, and then eventually chooses to abandon all ties to her former identity as "Jean Grey." Phoenix defeats the X-Men and takes to space, but her journey through the cosmos leaves her so drained that she consumes an entire solar system to restore her power, inadvertently causing mass genocide on nearby planets. Make sure you watch this before you see Dark Phoenix!

    Can somebody that knows a little bit about moviemaking and Production Studios why I keep hearing this was the final X-Men?
    Is that being said because they have nothing set up yet because I remember when X-Men the final stand came out they said that was the last X-Men movie?
    I'm confused... and isn't the comic/ thriller New Mutants supposed to come out soon

    Why do we love super hero movies? I watch because I want to be one of them. I want to be able to save animals from humans, who are their common enemies & exploit them, watching their suffering in labs, torturing them to produce useless medecine, (like Premarin, for whimpy old women who can’t handle menopause).
    All the super hero movies are about saving humans. WHY? Humanity is destroying the planet. Not animals, who are at the mercy of humans.
    Would I kill people at a dog fight? You bet your ass I would. The promoters & the spectators, I’d get rid of every single one of them. Why bother with jail or fines? Waste of time & money.
    The pieces of shit who kill elephants & other animals for sport? These assholes hold a very special place on my NEED TO BECOME EXTINCT list.

  • Toranpu Donarudo The Blasian

    The reviews are right. This film was not good. Not terrible though. The actor that played jean grey was terrible. The writing/script was below average. The plot was convoluted, read the source material (that's amazing). The actors that played magneto, xavier, beast, raven, were again very good. This phoenix movie was better than x3. That is extremely easy to do though. Definitely one of the x movies to skip

    This new batch of young actors playing the next x-characters, are x-cruciatingly bad actors. They suck. How can any movie they make around them be anything fun or exciting if literally every one of them is this bad.

    I dont understand people saying Turner's a bad actress. She's amazing! Just look at her list of acting jobs. From Sansa to vengeful teen to Jean Grey. She's better than overrated Jennifer Lawrence.

    10:45 Mr. director sounds so sour about this franchise falling short of the MCU in terms of popularity. lol I DO hope this is a good adaptation though, as this saga is one of my most beloved ones in the comics.
