I was going to post this but wasn't sure which thread. I thought it was official until I read the credits. Very well done.

I loved Rogue from watching the 90's cartoon growing up and I felt like she was WAY underutilized in the movies. Maybe they were planning on her gaining her flight and super strength later on, but it just never panned out  :'(

Totally agree. Her backstory and development are cool elements of her character, but then we never saw the finished product, so to speak.

The 90's cartoon was also what got me into X-Men.

It kind of makes me sad that we won't get another X-Men film with the original cast. I was hoping that after Days of Future Past they could of cranked out one or two more, and bring back Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler.

And redeem James Marsden's Cyclops for being a complete pansy.

They'd have to change her story pretty drastically though since those powers came from Carol Danvers, and Marvel owns her.

Agree about Alan Cummings, what a great performance. But disagree with the rest. I think they need to shut down the whole machine and just start with in the Deadpool universe.

Outside of the DCEU, FOX seemed to totally not get more of their characters than any other of the companies, including Sony.

They got Professor X and Magneto, as well as Beast, Nightcrawler and..........at the very very end, Wolverine.

But that's about it. They completely missed the point with Cyclops, Jean, Sabertooth, Mystique, Havok, Angel (both of him), Apocalypse, Jubilee, Pyro, Ice Man, Psychlocke, etc etc.

Start over, and find writers/directors that are more interested in the characters than star power and explosions.

:iagree: for the most part.

I think they did ok with Colossus... but totally under-utilized him.  Famke did good with what she was given, and I just can picture the new ginger-chick (too lazy to go look her name up) as Jean/Phoenix.

Every other character has been either filler, or totally mis-used - with Cyclops v1 and Mystique v2 being the worst offenders

Deadpool Colossus was almost eerily accurate. American Colossus who just walks around with TVs missed the point. Looked good though.

Agree on Colossus.

The new actor playing Jean is from Game Of Thrones.

I can't disagree with that... there were some stupid moments with him.  I just didn't like the 'thickness' of him in Deadpool - he felt like a video game character.  To me, he's always been a taller/slender stature.  The girth of him in Deadpool is what I always though of Juggernaught to be.  I think the way he was physically portrayed in the x-men franchise is what I was trying to insinuate was done "ok".

So Josh Brolin, who is currently Thanos in the MCU, has officially been cast as Cable.


Well that was a totally unpredictable conclusion to that cast hunt.

I was just about to post about this Adami lol.

The reports I'm reading is he signed a 4 picture deal with the X-men franchise. Not only will he appear in Deadpool 2, but very likely in other X-men films and/or Deadpool crossovers. If Mr. Sinister is suspected to be the big baddie for next X-men movie, this makes a lot of sense.

Also, 4 movies. I think I have a idea of whats going to happen in Infinity Wars   :lol

Well he'll be in Deadpool 2, and probably 2-3 X-Force movies.

Not sure I even want him showing up in an X-Men movie, since those are currently the worst parts of the X-Men universe.

Just saw Logan over the weekend.  That was incredible, and I'm going to miss Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.  They gave him one hell of a film to go out on though.  Brutal, violent, and so much more real and less comic-booky.

Completely agree! Most unusual film of the series. Outstanding work also from Patrick Stewart.

I just finished the Death of Wolverine comic series - the 12 issue Wolverine from 2013, and the 4 issues.  Now on to the after event tie-ins.  Somewhat disappointed... there wasn't much of a connection between the 2013 series, and the actual Death of series.  His actual death felt rushed, but the last few pages/panels were very good.

And Entertainment Weekly has given us a first look at X-Men: Dark Pheonix!











That last picture...who is going to die in this??

And it hasn't been confirmed if whether we are getting Mister Sinister as a villain, who was teased in the post credits in Apocalypse.

Simon Kinberg, who is a long time producer for the X-Men movies, is directing this one, and has come saying that he's hoping to make a three movie story arc starting with Dark Pheonix. Those hopes and dreams may be going away with Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox. The future of the X-Men is still unknown, whether they will be molded into the Marvel Cinematic Universe or if the X-Men will continue have their seperate franchises. I'm hoping for the latter personally. What we do know is that we are getting three X-Men films in 2018 before (or if) anything happens

So New Mutants has been pushed back almost a whole year to 2019.

Deadpool has also been pushed up 2 weeks.


Weird stuff.

Gambit is one of my favorite X-Men but I've always felt he didn't need his own movie. Just put him in a X-Men movie.

I agree with this. Introduce him in Deadpool 3 or something and if the character gains a following then make a stand alone movie. This Gambit movie will fail.

Yeah, after multiple attempts of getting this film up in the air, I think it's time to take the horse out back and shoot it. This was a concept that was dated when Fox wanted to make Origin films....in which Origins: Magneto infamously became X-Men: First Class.

So The Hollywood Reporter indicated there was some concern about overlap between Deadpool 2 and New Mutants in overseas marketplaces.I guess the two films would have been in theaters at the same time in some countries. I'm assuming pushing it back 10 months will also avoid it being released with Dark Phoenix as well?

Eh. I don't buy that reason at all. You don't shift a movie 10 months unless you have major changes to make. I expect some reshoots and so forth.

They could have moved it to August, if that's all they wanted to do.

Plus the dates have been set for a long time now. They just now realized this?

Yeah, it's a strange move. I think you are right about reshoots. That doesn't mean the movie that got turned in was bad. I heard that Fox execs were happy with how New Mutants turned out. It could be like the Rogue One reshoots where Lucasfilm basically shelled out more money on it.

I'm honestly surprised that Disney hasn't pulled the plug on all X-Men related film in preproduction with Fox, like Gambit. I've got to assume they'll be working it into the MCU at some point in the near future. Whether that means a total reboot Or not remained to be seen. FWIW, I think it should be a total reboot of the core X-Men characters, though peripheral characters like Deadpool or the new.mtuants could be folded in after their next movies.
