    Default Dark Phoenix

    Since there is a Gifted thread in this section.

    In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite -- not only to save Jean's soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
    Story sounds like an amalgamation of the two Phoenix stories in Claremont’s run. And after rereading the Phoenix arc I think I know who Jessica Chastain’s character is.

    I think what has been shown to us so far, it does look DP is mirroring X-3, although I Hope not. There may be some parrallels, but I want them to be very minor and portrayed differently. I am looking for a new film, a new, better, accurate one based on the comic story this time!

    I'm guessing that the Jessica Chastain character (Lilandra? Cassandra Nova?) plays a role similar to Mastermind in the original storyline; not so much the creating weird illusions (something the films already did with X2 anyway), but twisting Jean's mind somehow.

    Rumors say that she is a gray skrull-like shapeshifter. There is actually a character like that in the first Phoenix arc who was part of the Imperial Guard.

    So Iím guessing that Jessicaís character is someone DíKen set to manipulate Jean to use to his own ends. Basically itís the Phoenix Saga but they replaced the M'Kraan Crystal with the Phoenix Force as the macguffin.

    Maybe Chastain is the Skrull Empress? She was shown in the DP Saga.

    Doubt it. A Chameleoid seems more likely at this point.

    So I’m guessing that Jessica’s character is someone D’Ken set to manipulate Jean to use to his own ends. Basically it’s the Phoenix Saga but they replaced the M'Kraan Crystal with the Phoenix Force as the macguffin.
    Just a point of clarification that neither of those things are mcguffins
    Why yes, I AM a Mark Goodson/Bill Toddman production.

    Seems to fit the definition of a macguffin.

    I like the X-Men movies, yet I gotta admit they botched up the HFC in how they used them in First Class. I mean, a barely recognizable Shaw and Emma, plus random C-listers like Riptide and Azazel?

    It would have been hecka cool if for DPS we got the classic lineup of Shaw, Frost, Leland, Pierce, and Wyngarde. But alack alas! it's not to be.

    According to Daniel Richtman of CNBC, the Evil Mouse is going to kill the X-Men franchise.

    If he means killing the current one for their own than I say "Hallelujah" and hope Dark Phoenix is a nice send off for the main fox X-Men series.

    Hope X-23 happens on Disney+. An MCU producer was working on it and Kevin Feige seemed to have been excited for it.

    Fortunately, the source is not reputable.

    It wasn’t Disney that cancelled those projects but Fox because they are not going to have the rights for long, so why bother? Just like how Netflix canned the Marvel shows.
