    It was Franklin Richards who is a mutant and probably counts as both.

    I'm assuming that she means both.

    Rumor is Jean will lose control and impale Mystique, Magneto, Professor X, or Beast. (I think we all know who people will vote for...)

    People are so annoyed by her character at this point I doubt it will have much emotional effect.

    Hmmm. Madelyne Pryor? Mastermind showing up? Very curious how they're gonna do this. My first thought is Mystique goes completely villainous and Jean kills her. Thus the funeral scene.

    She seems like a mix of Skrulls (shapeshifiting), Shi'ar (after the Phoenix) and even a dash of Emma Frost in there (with the blonde hair).

    So the movie synopsis... Set in 1992 and they're national heroes. Professor X and his ego again...oi. That's 8 years before the events of the first X-Men movie.

    And everybody still looks the same age :p.

    It's actually kind of nice to see the public accepting the X-Men though, even if it does fuel Xavier's ego :sweat:.

    Scott's willingness to kill or die for Jean is the emotional core of the movie, he will start to be a leader, and he's the one unwavering 'Team Jean' mutant.

    This time jump seems so unnecessary to me.

    That's true, if Dark Phoenix is still a 2 parter -- that will be it with the 'vintage' era started by First Class. Where will they go then, the present like Deadpool and be kept in an AU or get rebooted into the MCU...

    It depends. I would imagine Feige would reboot them around the same time as Fantastic Four. Between the Cosmic heroes and F4, this will essentially replace the Avengers facet of the MCU.

    Now if FOX allows Donner and Kinberg to keep X-Men under the FOX umbrella, we may or may not see a reboot. The X-Men can come into our time. However, Feige seems more interested in them, than FF.

    I am conflicted about it. The X-Men franchise is finally starting to come into its own and expand, Dark Phoenix in this case is bringing them into the cosmic area of their comics. The MCU is just starting to move to the cosmic full tilt. To reboot the X-Men and bring them into the MCU now -- ugh, I don't know. I'm sure Feige is going for Mutants now that the TV side has mined a lot of Inhumans already. But in the same vein, it's more the characters associated with FF like Silver Surfer and Galactus who could be a big boon to the MCU than Mutants. It's kind of mystifying we're in a MCU where S.H.I.E.L.D. is an outlaw nearly dead organization again and we could be heading to a MCU where the Avengers disband. It seems like the trend is to focus more on solo movies than team movies.

    That definitely sounds true to the Dark Phoenix storyline, and Cylcops growing into a leader is good to hear ;).
