    Thereís plenty of room for improvement in the Fox-men but Iím Pretty easy to please-give me some good fight scenes and Iíll be entertained enough.
    Thank you for your positivity!

    I'm definitely going to see it. It looks like it will be an amazing train wreck! Pretty much every mistake in X3 only this time there is a space shuttle too!

    I recommend keeping expectation as low as possible and you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Not really. Fox has been supbar for most of the X-men films and Apocalypse didnt inspire much confidence

    Not really. Not only have I hated the concept of the franchise being stuck in prequel land for the past 4 movies but weíre once again bowing out on the note of Dark Phoenix. And all that isnít even taking into account that none of this even matters considering this is the end of the line anyway. It feels less like a send off and more like someone finally pulling the plug on this zombie universe where Deadpool came to be the best thing of it.

    This is the best idea, for any movie really.

    Yes because the spoilers I read in 4 chan make it look like a fun well designed action movie. I don't care about it not being true to the comics or anything about shipping

    I am excited to see this because it allows me to go to the cinema and see the characters I love. I may not be IN LOVE with what Fox has done with these characters, but it still offers me some level of escapism.

    While they have never been true to the comic book stories, and as someone else mentioned, focused FAR too much on CELEBRITY status vs CHARACTER popularity...I have liked the tone of these movies.

    As I was talking with a friend about the films. I mentioned how this potentially could have gone over better if:

    Jennifer Lawrence was cast as Jean Grey in First Class instead of Mystique.
    Nicholas Hoult was cast as Scott Summers in First Class instead of Beast.

    That way getting here, to Dark Phoenix, we would have had time with Jean Grey to really feel the emotional depth of the character's change. (Also, Sophie would have made a great Emma Frost....even though I'm really excited to see her play the Dark Side of Jean).

    The best I can muster for an X-film as a Cyclops fan is cautiously optimistic. After the important scenes in Alocalypse were left on the cutting room floor for more Magneto/Xavier waangst and a Wolverine cameo I'm still having trouble managing anything more than guarded pessimism to be honest. I want to see them finally do right by Scott and Jean, and the relationship between them, but all I have to go on is the rapport between the actors playing them as I see in the promo blitz, and that looked good even in the last film. Then the idiots in edits stepped in.

    I'm optimistic, I liked what I've seen in trailers anyway. If it's playing at the theatre I live near by I'll probably find the time to watch it.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    I have always supported all X-Men movies. Huge fan of DOFP and Deadpool but after Apocalypse that was terrible I don't want any of this anymore. Tired of Magneto and Mystique.
    I hope it will be good but I won't watch it and I am not excited for it.

    I honestly haven't enjoyed any of the "First Class" X-films outside of Days. So I'm skipping this unless I have a friend who REALLY wants to see a movie this weekend (we already saw Godzilla). I'll happily watch on a plane or on cable tv, but I have no desire seeing this cast together again on a big screen.

    Very excited for it, I've already booked my tickets for Thursday night as my friends couldn't do Wednesday (it's coming out on the 5th here in the UK). Regardless of any misgivings I might have on the direction (or lack thereof) the mutants have had on the screen for the past 20 years, an X-Men movie is still THE highlight of the year in my book.
