Dark Phoenix Discussion (Spoilers): Truly The Worst X-Men Movie Ever?

Jennifer Lawrence and Sophie Turner in Dark Phoenix Twentieth Century Fox 2019

"Dark Phoenix" follows Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as her power faces an unprecedented growth spurt at the expense of her mental deterioration. Instead, she evolves into something new and we see the bird outline of her phoenix form in the sky at the end of the film. I will say it was cool seeing Turner using the cosmic powers of the Phoenix Force. If there's one common thread throughout the comics' different depictions of the Phoenix Force, it's that it's nearly always corrupts.

Mystique, who has been poorly written in this series since the beginning, gets an unceremonious death that rocks the men in her life; Storm continues to have only two modes of combat, lightning and soft winds, despite being an omega-level mutant in theory; and Jean's entire storyline becomes a come-to-Jesus moment where Charles is forced to admit he is wrong in his actions and gets taken down from his pedestal.

The X-Men: Dark Phoenix actresses explained that they noticed their co-star wasn't in the best mood one day during filming, and so they convinced the stunt team controlling him with wires to make him perform the dance to the 1993 pop hit while he was suspended in midair.

"X-Men" is the longest running superhero franchise so far, spanning 19 years and 12 movies - if you count the three "Wolverine" spinoffs and the pair of "Deadpool" movies. This time more attention is paid to the story arcs of Raven Darkhölme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), whose love/hate friendship with Professor X can be the high point of an "X-Men" movie when done right.

Widely regarded as the most satisfying X-Men film - and aided by a 2003 release date that would hold off Marvel Studios comparisons for another five years - "X2" is now a classic in the age it helped create. Both movies are set in the 1990s, but "Captain Marvel" actually has fun with being a period piece and takes advantage of its '90s setting. Now we know why Jessica Chastain's role was kept a secret, probably because she didn't even know who she is playing.

E3 2019: Nintendo predictions, rumors and expectations
Ubisoft - The Assassin's Creed company will hold its briefing on June 10 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST (6 AM AET on June 11). Confirming earlier leaks, the upcoming Star Wars game looks like a mixture of Uncharted, Sekiro and Force Unleashed.

The Google Trips app is being shut down come August 5
Aptoide, a popular alternative to Google Play Store, has launched a large online campaign against the developer of Android . All offending software has since been removed from the Play Store or updated to no longer include the plugin responsible.

Dark Phoenix does have a few elements similar to Civil War.

Regarding Disney taking over, it's thought the X-Men will see a complete reboot. Probably not, but that doesn't mean that there haven't been good films in this franchise; they just mostly focus on the male characters.

It's truly the end of an era with Dark Phoenix.

It's a character study to end all character studies, a flawless send-off to this version of the Wolverine character that ties up the underlying story of the "X-Men" series in an equally cathartic way.
