X-Men: The last fight is pretty terrible. This is a universally recognized fact, which is why the film criticized by director Brett Ratner 2006 has been removed from the chronology of the series. Now, Simon Kinberg, the architect of Fox's X-Men franchise, who wrote and produced The Last Stand, has a chance to retouch with the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix and … well, frankly it's even. a lot.
My apathy is born of two things. First, the fact that with Disney's takeover of Fox in its final stages of completion, Marvel will soon again hold the X-Men license, which will inevitably trigger a reboot that will cancel all that franchise. Secondly, is it just me or Kinberg – who makes his professional debut as a director – repeats some of The Last Stand's mistakes?
This was the first thought that struck me when the new poster was filed for Dark Phoenix before a trailer revealed this morning. This new promo piece showed the front of Jean Gray of Sopher Turner and
It was just the poster, but what about the trailer? Look!
Hmmm … I've always hated the way X-Men movies, with the exception of the brilliant first class. apparently hated or embarrassed by the comics on which they were based. They plunged everyone into a dark leather and softened the more imaginative aspects of the property. This included the cosmic side of X-Men, which was an important factor in comics and was simply never discussed in the movies.
And despite previous promises, things once again look very terrestrial here. Not to mention the fact that once again a transport of mutant prisoners has been attacked, there are the X-Men who are fighting against Jean in a small suburb, an X-Man using his powers to approach her as she is caught in a cloud of debris, another dies apparently under his hand. Kinberg had promised us to do an adaptation of the comic book this time around, but it seems rather than he just adapted The Last Stand!
In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN are facing their most formidable and powerful enemy: one of theirs, Jean Gray. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is about to be killed when she is touched by a mysterious cosmic force. Once back home, this force makes her not only infinitely more powerful, but much more unstable. By struggling with this entity in her, John releases her powers in a way that she can neither understand nor contain. Jean escapes control and hurts those she loves most, she begins to unravel the fabric that keeps the X-Men together. Now, with this crumbling family, they must find a way to unite – not only to save John's soul, but to preserve our planet from aliens who wish to turn that force into a weapon and rule the galaxy.
X-Men: The Dark Phoenix also sees the return of James McAvoy in the role of Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender in Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence in Mystic, Tye Sheridan in Cyclops, Nicholas Hoult in Beast, Kodi Smit-McPhee in Nightcrawler and Alexandra Shipp like storm. Andrew Stehlin in the role of Red Lotus, Kota Eberhardt in the role of Selene and Jessica Chastain in the role of the mysterious villainous villain of the film. Its release is scheduled for June 7.
