Saw them earlier, they’re nice.

Yeah, let's explore the dark side of "hero" (mass-murderer) Magneto...
bkmeijer2 - 4/29/2019, 2:54 AM
Magneto is a hero now? Interesting

@MalseMarcel - didnt he help kill Apocalypse?
WeaponXCII - 4/29/2019, 8:04 AM
@MalseMarcel - Well, he's changed sides basically every movie after the first one only to shockingly return to status quo at the end, so I definitely don't blame you for being confused.

Just a question to anyone with an encyclopedic knowledge of Marvel comics...

Do people ever mistake any of the many blue mutants for Kree?
LeBronStan - 4/29/2019, 6:17 AM
@Hawknaba - No, but I confuse Atlanteans with Kree alot
GoldGuy - 4/29/2019, 7:29 AM
@Hawknaba - Not in any comic I've read, but maybe it helps that most blue mutants have a defining feature. Beast has fur (Kree don't), Nightcrawler has a tail, and Mystique is scaled. Even Apocalypse has those weird, purple lips.
Hawknaba - 4/30/2019, 2:15 AM
@LeBronStan @GoldGuy - Cheers for the info
PeenWeinersteen - 4/29/2019, 4:55 AM
Nice posters. I’m looking forward to this.
Ryguy88 - 4/29/2019, 5:17 AM
Is Chastain actually going to be playing a made up villain in this?
Reeds2Much - 4/29/2019, 6:15 AM
@Ryguy88 - Safe bet is she's the Phoenix's "human form" interacting mentally with Jean.
RolandD - 4/29/2019, 7:29 AM
@Ryguy88 - They’re all made-up characters.
Ironnick - 4/29/2019, 9:11 AM
@Reeds2Much - Yeah, that’s the vibe I’ve been getting from the trailers and other promo stuff. Honestly, I think it’s an interesting way of portraying the Phoenix Force.
Ryguy88 - 4/29/2019, 11:43 AM
@RolandD - "all words are made up"
RolandD - 4/29/2019, 11:46 AM
@Ryguy88 - 😂
RolandD - 4/29/2019, 11:47 AM
@Ryguy88 - Reminds me of when DC had “imaginary stories,” that we call Elseworlds now. LOL
RolandD - 4/29/2019, 11:49 AM
@Ryguy88 - Seriously though, that would suck if she is made up just for the flick. My hopes are low for this regardless.
Ryguy88 - 4/29/2019, 5:18 AM
Or shes a shapeshifting Mr. Sinister that we will never see fully fleshed out.
WeaponXCII - 4/29/2019, 7:53 AM
Unfortunately they're only going to explore the dark side- or really any side- of the same three or four characters....
PeenWeinersteen - 4/29/2019, 11:53 AM
Negativity?!? You mean the negativity perpetuated by mcu fanboys and not so good editors making flanebait articles?
Cbmfilmjunkie - 4/29/2019, 1:34 PM
It's going to be a great feeling to care about the XMen again in a few years.

Sucks we'll never see Wolverine and Cap share the screen together.

I understand and i respect that for a lot of people this are good movies, but in almost 20 years, Fox didn't move anywhere with this franchise, they make nothing new, every single movie change a few minor things that are cool, but the overall structure of the movie and the story are similar to what has been done in the past.

- Trying to adapt/tease Phoenix 4 times? check
- Trying to adapt/tease Weapon X 6 times? check
- Use the bad guy/good guy Magneto story forever? check
- Use 3 or 4 characters in a franchise with dozens, if not hundreds of cool, fan favourites characters, in EVERY MOVIE? check
- Change the narrative, timeline and the already poor character development from one movie to another? check

Yeah...sorry, if you like it, good for you i honestly hope you enjoy it, but for the rest of just boring and stupid at this point.
I don't want to be a hater, i really don't, in fact i want great awesome X-Men movies, but Fox just keeps droping the ball in every movie, except for like...2 or 3 wich moves a little aside of the regular snyder/kinberg aproach like Logan and Deadpool.
If Marvel, in 11 years, can do something like Endgame, there is no excuse for Fox to lose time with the same 2 or 3 stories for 20 years...
