Not sure if that is a good sign or bad.

Looks like yet again they have butchered the actual story.

However as a swansong for the Fox X-Men universe I hope it works.

New X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer is out. Looking good. I sure hope they get it right this time. No way they'll be able to make it as epic as the source material as the Dark Phoenix saga was insane in the comics. I just hope they do a better job of it than they did with X-Men: Last Stand (though that is setting the bar awfully low). This trailer does look promising though, and has an element of the cosmic about it, so that's something. Fingers crossed.

Looks good, though I'm finding myself a little uninspired by X-Men films at the moment, there's been a bit too much messing with timelines and characters. I think I need to rewatch the more recent ones. I'm not even sure I've seen them all to be honest.

If you thought the beginning was potentially spoilery then DO NOT read Empire's breakdown of the trailer because that actually gives it away. FFS!

I've read a lot about the spoiler nature of the trailer, and how it's intentional. Personally I think it may be a red herring but who knows. Or really cares?

I happily watched the trailer and didn't think it was a spoiler. For me the bigger spoiler is that I have already seen this film and I know what happens.

Well yes. Perhaps this time though Charles and Eric will survive, who knows. Or, erm, at this point cares. Sorry to repeat myself.

Whenever the deal is finalised if it isn’t already. So anytime they want to, but I’d guess they’d want to leave something of a cooling off period between this and their take on X-Men. Especially if they’re going to go down the full hard reboot route with an all new cast. I don’t envy the guy who gets to be the new Wolverine. He’ll have some big shoes to fill there with Jackman considered by many to be a definitive take on the character.

The final trailer for this is out, and it's looking good, hopefully the Fox X-Men franchise can go out with a bang.

That does look rather good.

Well that was interesting, a good movie, but not great. I'll not spoil it, but it makes the same mistakes as X-Men: Last Stand did, without being as bad as that movie.

I'll spoiler the rest of my thoughts on the movie, though I won't cover anything specifically plot-wise, however if you want to go in cold with no preconceptions you might want to avoid.

Spoiler:
It just didn't go all out and go big enough with the whole Phoenix saga thing. If you've read the comic and you're expecting it to go anywhere near that? You'll be disappointed. If you watch the movie on it's own merits though? It is very good, the cast are great in it, and it does touch more on the cosmic than Last Stand did, so it at least touches on the epic greatness that Dark Phoenix deserves to be, but it is still Phoenix Lite. To truly do the source material justice the only option is to wait years until the MCU decide to tackle the X-Men franchise, and only after it is very well established should they even try to do this storyline again, and they will be able to go big enough with it to do it well, and do the material justice. After all in the comic it is pretty much all set in space and on other alien worlds, and the cinematic X-Men franchise is nowhere near the place it needs to be right now to pull that sort of thing off.
