    The "Dark Phoenix" trailer put together with "Avengers: Endgame". This is fantastic. More resonance and promotion for my beloved X-Men.

    It's a nice time to be a true X-Men fan.

    I don't care if X-Men, Star Wars, Star Trek, the MCU, Dr. Who or whatever no one owns fandom so please stop with the " True Fan" nonsense.

    You know I'm right, Jack Napier79.

    There's no need for gatekeeping. Everyone's allowed to like what they like and still call themselves a fan. There's no threshold for being a "true fan."

    I wasn't accusing anyone. We're all true fans. Re-read my original post

    It's referred to all of us.

    I'm really not getting that implication there from your original post. What is true vs. untrue? Why even put in the qualifier "true" to begin with if you mean all fans? Are there false fans? Who makes that decision?

    Yeah, I'm with Joker on this one. No one owns a fandom and so no one dictates what a "true fan" is, no matter the spin.

    I don't own the fandom. You're seeing things that aren't there.

    Enjoy the movies. They are adult, brilliant, deep superhero movies. Real masterpieces. You're gonna miss them in the future to come.

    Logan and Deadpool were adult. Dark Phoenix and all the others are for the family.

    Deadpool was funny and mostly played for laughs. Nothing wrong with it, even.
    In "The Last Stand", watching Phoenix dissolving Xavier in a very scary way is not family-friendly at all, as well as the vast majority of themes and sequences featured in the X-Men movies.
    Blood is not the only type of "violence".

    Doesn’t change the fact that deadpool was rated r. It still was adult compared to the main x-men movies. And most people started watching the x-men movies at a young age. I was around 9 or 10 when I saw the first one.

    The US is crazy. X-3 had piles of corpses. Deadpool had a mountain of them. Yet if we had seen five seconds of Ryan Reynolds' dick or Famke Janssen's tits, it would have been X-rated.

    Sex is a part of human existence that virtually all humans will engage in at some points in their lives (pour one out for the virgins: men, women, and the technicolor rainbow in between). You imply it is occurring, it's instantly R.

    Murder is one of the absolute worst things a human can do. But you can imply it in G-rated films, and show it in PG. It's messed up.

    Scott’s death was offscreen and Xavier’s “death” was a fake-out. Pretty much all the on-screen deaths were in the final battle and they were all background characters, with the exception of Jean.
