    So...not only did she kind of confirm she's in the movie, but it seems the story will carry over into the next film :eek:.

    Hopefully this solves the problem of them rushing through the Dark Phoenix Saga :).

    Well, it's not better than a trilogy, but I'll accept it.

    Their trilogies as a whole get messy. So I'm glad they seemingly admitted that and trimmed it to a two parter. Maybe it'll be a boon on pacing and tell a tighter narrative.

    She'll probably get five whole lines instead the original planning to give her three. Can't get over how stupid this concept is after Apocalypse bombed so hard.

    That's because much like SONY, they don't properly plan a trilogy. These franchises are designed to go on, even after a part three. So yeah, just like the Fast&Furious, Resident Evil, or Underworld, the X-Men films are shooting from the hip.

    I still wish The Hobbit was done as a 2-parter, and it seems WB just now realized It is a 2-parter. We could use more films like that.

    Apocalypse wasn't a complete bomb. It still made money even if it didn't gross much as its predecessor and I really do hope that Psylocke gets more dialogue and screentime. You know what's stupid? Having the Dark Phoenix story reduced to a subplot in The Last Stand and I'm actually glad that it's the main story for next year's film and its follow-up. It's not really a stupid concept to adapt The Dark Phoenix Saga.


    Which explains a lot of padding for the second and third films of the Hobbit trilogy and yeah, we do need more two-part films instead of just trilogies, tetralogies or others, hence making It into a two-parter than one long horror film was a good idea and I have a good feeling that they won't pull a Hobbit on that one.

    Honestly though, $tephen King's It was a massive novel. WB could very well be a trilogy, but personally I'd rather them bring back The Dark Tower as a series.

    Well, it's probably for the best that It's not going to be a trilogy and Sony are currently planning a TV series sequel to The Dark Tower film adaptation, which itself is a continuation of the book series, despite the mediocre box-office and critical response.

    We'll see. Back on topic. I'd really have to question what FOX's plan is according to X-men prime series. Will they continue the 90's timeline? Will they merge these films with the current Deadpool/X-Force facet of the universe? Seeing how Cable is a time traveler, we could see him show up. Besides we need to focus on Jean specifically.

    That can't be right if they were able to put Fantastic Four characters in they probably would have quite a while ago.

    I have a feeling that the Skrulls rumour is false.

    Remember, the Skrulls are co-owned by FOX and Marvel. They (FOX) only retain complete rights to Super-Skrull.

    But rights issues are pretty crazy in some ways, I still have doubts because there's never been a supporting character related to the Fantastic Four in any of these movies.

    Yeah, I think the closest was a name drop in Stryker's files in X2. Reed Richards I think..

    Alexandra Shipp claims the movie is faithful to the comic.
