    Someone asked a question, "Who, besides Wolverine and Deadpool could support a solo trilogy?" Hence, this.

    Because it's highly unlikely that Disney will only want to use the X-characters to make X-Men movies so there's a decent chance some of them will end getting their own solo movies. So I was curious about which X-characters (beside the obvious two) could potentially support a trilogy.

    Even in the comics I have no idea, why people want solos. Guess im just out of the loop.

    Solo movies only make sense if there are stories to tell about that character that expands on their role, or who they are, AND it's engaging. Honestly if there's no "life outside the xmen" there's no reason for a solo movie.

    And btw you don't have to do much to get a "producer" credit on anything.

    I don’t know about never. God Loves, Man Kills is arguably just as brutal as the Netflix shows.

    Team series are a bad investment if all you care about is one character.

    You're going to have to clarify that a bit. I didn't find "God Loves, Man Kills" brutal at all. More like a by the numbers anti-racism soap box. I have rarely been more underwhelmed by a comic with a similar reputation.

    There’s so many options for the X-Men at Disney
    Theatrical
    Disney Play
    Disney XD
    Hulu
    Freeform
    FX

    I think they’ll be fine.

    Hi all, first time poster but long time lurker (I’m talking on here daily) and wanted thoughts on an MCU X-Men plot that I posted on another forum moments ago. I’ve been thinking about how to boot XMen into the MCU with OR without it’s current continuity which may end with Dark Phoenix and I think I found a solve and want thoughts on it.

    You can’t have a world that hates and fears them if so far there hasn’t been a single mention of mutants for obvious reason so why would one or two films later would I believe that they were always around?

    Xavier has always teetered the line of inspirational man and arragoant *******,which the former is what we’ve mainly seen in the current films outside of X3 and how he handled Jean and was pretty dismissive of everyone around him outside of his conversations with Storm. So what if something happened to drive him touse his abilities in combination with an amplified Cerebro to permanently keep himself and mutant kind a secret and alter the memories and current lives of everyone alive to fit that narrative. Think of it just as he does in small instances like when he freezes a museum or makes soldiers not see his team in the back of a truck, even just randomly poping up in the Oval Office during a press conference, but constantly and all over the world at the same time. Basically what Apocalypse wanted to do without direct manipulation of their behaviors and free will. The X-Men and other mutants in his school don’t feel completely threatened by it as they have been trained in protection against telepaths like we’ve seen in the comics. Let’s say the events of end of Dark Phoenix drives him to take that action should they move forward with intergrating rather than rebooting. If they reboot they can have the event be a mystery that reveals itself during their first team movie.

    In the time that has been happening, decades even, he has been in suspended animation or coma leading his teams telepathically. This means the X-Men could act as a completely covert division, arriving to mutants when their mutations start at puberty or if they are completely non human like, birth as he detects mutant brain patterns dispatches various teams. They can either shelter their families or save the mutant. They also fight and thwart plots by other mutants not sided with them.

    The moment that leads to the “world that hates and fears them” is Infinity War and it’s sequel, and whichever outcome be it the dusting/undusting or probable destruction of infinity stones as a surge comes with that as what disrupts Cerebro and the cover they had. No man should have that much power and use it and the fact that someone has is what drives the fear which leads to the active hate and segregation which we’re used to in the comics. I’m talking full blown “no more mutants” revolution worldwide. That’s the world I want to see on screen.

    The above plot can even be a movie in itself with the big moment being the middle twist. The X-Men teams themselves can take a stance and want to reveal themselves and their kind with the surfacing of superhuman beings like The Avengers driving a wedge between them and Xavier which we’ve gotten used to in recent years until his death in the comics.


    It also answers the decades old question of “Why would a world that loves The Avengers and Fantastic Four hate the X-Men”.

    It also gives an option to use Dark Phoenix as the driving force that caused it all or reboot entirely. Personally I want a reboot, but the above is what I see as the only way to not have a pubescent team which I don’t want as I don’t see the X-Men we know and love as that being the best version of themselves. Even mid 20s i’ll take as it gives the iteration of those rebooted characters longevity and can seamlessly team up/battle established characters.

    I don't see anything wrong with X-Men solo movies. Sony is making solo movies of Spider-Man supporting characters, especially the villains. Even Kraven and Morbius are supposedly getting onscreen treatment.
