    Shazam's box office is looking really good in comparison.
    Not to spit on their grave or anything, but maybe it's better if it bombs.

    If it were a massive sucess, it might force marvel to try and incorporate the existing franchise into the MU (which isn't impossible if Spider-Man establishes a multiverse).

    But a bomb basically gives marvel the freedom to start completely from scatch.

    The movie was going to bomb regardless of its quality due to the release date. Just look at how SLOP2 is performing.

    Agree! Magneto and Mystique actually felt like very real and dangerous threats, not just to the X-Men but to the world. Thats really where they need to be as characters.

    Feige kinda shot this down as he said months back its gonna be a couple years before he uses the X-Men. I do think he takes the 2 actors from it clearly ...Fassbender (Magneto) and McAvoy (Xavier) and just use them more or less. Those 2 were fine in the last 4 movies. They would be solid in the Marvel Universe of films.

    (I would say that Feige could use the alternate worlds to use these X-Men basically but I think they will wait to do the whole alternate universe take when they recast Tony Stark years ahead at some point)

    Personally I like First Class best it goes

    First Class, Deadpool, Logan, DOFP, X2, Deadpool 2, X-Men, The Wolverine, X-Men Apocalypse, X-Men Origins Wolverine, The Last Stand, and then Dark Phoenix.

    Sadly, either Marvel Studios seems to be putting the X-verse in their priorities.

    It's probably just as well. Since this "X-Women" bullshit started up I'm not looking forward to whatever Disney comes up with.

    Feige already said it was going to be 5 years or so before they did any X-Men movies. Actually Feige is probably kinda happy about this because now it makes his job easier. After the failure of both Apocalypse and Phoenix if they do an X-Men movie that is even half good it is going to seem great compared those two messes.

    I do think it will not be that long though and we will start hearing something about Marvel's plans for the X-Men by 2021 or 2022.

    That didn’t happen with Incredible Hulk.

    And I doubt he is happy. He always tried to give his advise on other Marvel films like with Amazing Spider-Man 2 and apparently this film’s script back when it was a two-parter.

    That seems to have been the plan originally.
    Can you quote the part that says that? Because I read in that article that they wanted to make a smaller in scope movie then Apocalypse not a big space Opera. Also crazy shit like if Disney didn't buy fox that fox exec's were praying to make a Sony/Spiderman like deal with Marvel. Everything about that article made me feel like the people behind the scenes on this movie are even more inept.

    I know that fact and i did posted a thread commending this... https://community.cbr.com/showthread...n-Anytime-Soon

    What i fear is that they might push the X-Men even further than 2025 thanks to the flop of DP and God knows when they will attempt to adapt the Phoenix Saga again.

    Also, what bugs me is the delay in the first place.
    When the deal with Sony for Spider-Man was achieved, they modified the roaster of Phase 3 so they can bring the MCU Spider-Man as soon as possible and they can't do the same with the X-Men or the FF at least?

    They've failed with the Phoenix twice already. It might be better if they never attempted that story again. The X-men have plenty of other villains they can bring out.

    Fox failed. We haven't saw Marvel's take yet and judging from Thanos, they might do it right.
    Question is if they try.

    I never want to see Phoenix again. Give me Proteus, Bastion/Nimrod/Sentinials, Mojo, Exodus and the Acolytes, Belasco, Shadow King, a real Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Mesmero, Mutant Liberation Front, ect. Just give us something new besides beating Phoenix and Magneto to death over and over and over again. I don't even want to see Magneto until the end of the 2nd X-Men movie at this point. Phoenix is even worse and just needs to be left in the comics.
