Shit, that's not righthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jer8XjMrUB4
Apocalypse is coming!
It's got all of the original X-Men!
There's Professor X
Wait a second, that's not Iceman, that's
Mystique, you joker
And there's a ton of other characters too, like the titular Apocalypse and Magneto and Jubilee and Psylocke and Nightcrawler and probably Wolverine, it is an X-Men movies after all.
Also there was that other movie with X-Men characters from earlier this year, the one with Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, I heard that was pretty good too!
Keep your spoilers marked, at least for a little bit, this ain't out yet.
god bless the x-men
Still, I've already bought tickets for myself and a friend. Was planning on going to the midnight opening, but apparently they aren't doing a midnight opening, but rather like an 8pm opening. I love the feel of midnight shows and 8pm is just not the same, and also it doesn't work in terms of scheduling. So we're going that Saturday during the daytime.
I'm very excited for the story itself but I'm almost more interested to see where things stand at the end and how it might set up for the future.
Lots of them
Currently there are 6 ongoing X-Titles and a couple of miniseries
They're doing just fine, Whippy
I can't get excited about X-Men movies honestly because they vary so wildly in quality for me
I see it, it is good or it is bad, and then I move on
That said, I am super excited about Jubilee finally being in one of these, even if she doesn't have a major role
Also, was that cameo ever confirmed or denied?
Like, 3 lines of dialogue.
I suppose it's better to be disappointed now
Apocolyspe however just looks super boring. I'm getting none of the personality of the earlier films in this mini-trilogy.
I've been overall into the X- franchise more than the MCU, as it has felt more willing to take some weird risks to me. Not all of those have paid off super well, but I enjoy that they have at very least gone for it. Plus, I really like the X-Men, moreso than I like, well, most of the Avengers. I've heard mixed things about this movie, but I'm still looking forward to it, especially since some of the reviews I've read have highlighted my favorite parts of the X-Men as the best parts of Apocalypse.
I'm in the same boat!
I actually want to see if they touch upon what happens to Wolverine after DoFP whatsoever, as we know it's Mystique who "saves" him from his briny fate in the Potomac.
And in merchandising it is absolutely true, they are straight up replacing X-Men on cover reprints on t-shirts and whatnot with Marvel owned characters
But in the comics it is not true at all, the X-Men still have half a dozen ongoings and are an active part of the universe and are just fine.
For reference: they just had their top writer complete a 3 year run on the two lead X-Men titles and followed it up with their big acquisition from DC, Jeff Lemire, taking over the lead book and Old Man Logan.
If there was a sadness reaction button, I would press it for this
The worst part is we're back to the old X-men problem of way too many characters and a whole bunch of cool ones getting really short-changed in characterization and screen time, which is a shame
But! It was fun, suprisingly funny ( I feel like these movies are always pretty funny but I'm always surprised by that for some reason), and good lord Oscar Isaac was better than someone buried under all that makeup has any right to be
I think I'd be most into a Mister Sinister flick? Like, his whole weird thing with the Summers/Grey families and all of that. Really give the new Jean and Scott and chance to shine.
I think they had the right idea doing it for X3, it's just the execution that got bungled
Like, remember, Dark Phoenix Saga is when she flies off into space and commits galacticide.
Really lean into the counter culture grunge bullshit of the era
Oh shit, that'd be great
I may change my answer to that, I love it
Her film debut would be in a film set a decade before she was created!
(Jubilee was created in 89 so she barely makes the cut)
Not real spoilers but whatever
And have like, all of the older X-Men assume that Wolverine did it, based on the condition of the bodies and what Jean and Scott describe. But then it turns out it was actually Laura.
Jean had like a dark more powerful side that made her lose control and was called "The Phoenix" but it isn't at all like the phoenix so presumably they are planning on taking another shot at it.
it was implied to be the phoenix force, but x3 was such an incomplete movie that it barely counts
Maybe they can give that character another shot in Deadpool 2 so he can fight Colossus.
Plus the version from X3 was so bad it would be ripe for Deadpool to make fun of.
