Yes Shane,like Fantastic Four 2015,the New Mutants
powers are afflictions not abilities,which totally
misses the point.
I`m not sure if you know,but in the U.K. there is a
father of a disabled girl who has created a comic
starring his girl and other disabled children called The
Department of Ability,who use there disabilities for
good.I know which i`d prefer to see turned into a tv
series/film.

*****

I won't apologize for it...I had no idea that a Dark Phoenix movie was happening. I guess I succeeded in decoupling my brain from the Singer X-franchise more completely than I thought.

In any case, Charles, I could not agree with you more!

I think the only good thing I can see about this is the possibility for more royalty checks for JB.

Spotted at this week's Licensing Show in Vegas -


Fox has dropped the "X-Men" part of the movie's name, referring to it simply as Dark Phoenix. When the Disney/Fox merger becomes a done deal,  I wonder how the X-Men franchise will be rebooted by Marvel Studios. Hope it's a FULL reboot that starts from scratch with the original 5 students.

Thoughts?

That's what I'd like to see. Would fans care enough without Wolverine?

They should've just made the X-Men 3 movie better in the first place... more like the comic with a flame-bird, a sacrifice at the end, but definitely not killing Cyclops or Prof. X.

I remember my first reaction to Hugh Jackman as Wolverine was he looked like Teen-Wolv... too young and pretty indeed, but he actually did a great job and that impressed me.

I think they've already done the early '60s founding of the 'first class' of X-Men, or did that now 'not happen' either? I can hear Jon Anderson of Yes saying "get it right!"

To me, Fox never did the X-MEN franchise justice... even with FIRST CLASS.

I hope Marvel Studios wipes the slate clean and starts the same was Stan and Jack did. End the first movie with the the graduation of the first class and recruitment of the new team (after credit scene).

And please, can we have Xavier, scion of a Boston family, NOT be played by a Brit?

It appears that Comcast is throwing a wrench into the works in regards to the possibility of Fox being purchased by Disney.

I wonder, had Patrick Stewart not been the most prominent bald actor with an intellectual vibe to him at the time the X-Men film was first cast, would another actor cast have been either an American, or someone from another country who played the character as an American? The decision to cast Stewart seems to have been based mostly on appearance.

Matt H. - And perhaps they cast Patrick Stewart because he could act his way out of a vault sealed in a swimming pool full of cement. Because even being British, he could do a passable accent as Professor Xavier.

James McAvoy may be a fine actor - I've seen him in roles where I didn't dislike him - but I think he is pure awful as Professor X. That doesn't necessarily reflect on him - badly directed in a bad production wouldn't make things any better - but honestly, I think he did a fine American accent in "Wanted", so I don't understand the pure London accent in First Class, DoFP, or Apocalypse.
