They never made a good X-Men movie, and by that I mean a movie that did justice to the source material. Logan is a Wolverine movie. I’m talking about an ensemble movie about the actual X-Men.It just might be worse than X3. It’s crazy to think.
Still, Fox has two of the best films in the genre and one of the only three “masterpiece films” in all of comic book cinema, so there you go. They did alright.
People here talk like they churned out nothing but pure shit and it’s pretty fucking baffling.
DoFP is an excellent film, as much as it pains me to say such a thing about a Bryan Singer work.
Deadpool though. Granted they had to be forced into doing that.
Which is precisely why I don’t count it.
On this same note, originally the role of Storm was between Zendaya (now MJ in the MCU Spiderman films) and Alexandra Shipp (the current Fox Storm). At the time i'm sure Zendaya was disappointed but I bet she's not anymore.
Call it whatever you want, it’s not a good X-men movie.DoFP is an excellent film, as much as it pains me to say such a thing about a Bryan Singer work.
Just because it isn’t a faithful translation of the comic panels doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a good X-Men film.
People literally want an MCU envisioned X-Men film, and they forget that the first couple X-Men and Spider-man films pioneered this shit without needing to be 1:1 adaptations.
People wanted the 90’s era cartoon X-Men in a live action film and that shit just wasn’t ready for prime time. I appreciate what Singer (*shudder*) was going for with a more grounded, “what if” scenario with strong thematic relevance. It worked for several of these films and there have been more hits than misses, in my view.
I love a good reverse Eric Stoltz/Micheal J Fox story
Apparently, she didn't take the role because it wasn't a "big enough" role.
https://www.cbr.com/actors-who-were-almost-x-men/Fox was interested in casting Zendaya for their young Storm.
Ultimately, it came down to Zendaya feeling like the role wasn't big enough and passed. Audiences gave mixed reviews about Alexandra Shipp, who was ultimately cast in the role. While it was nice to see the '80s punk version of Storm, complete with mohawk, come to life on the screen, the character wasn't given much to do or say, leaving viewers underwhelmed.
With how much people were speculating New Mutants to go straight to Hulu or something, seems Disney is doing the opposite. Although that may have been out of their hands due to contracts and whatnot.
Wish I could find the tweet that RT'd that gif, but it was something along the lines of, "You're watching the Disney Channel, up next is Duck Tales!"
As far as I'm concerned, it was.
Definitely not (unless someone resented the Fox universe in its entirety, then wanting that would make more sense to me).
