    Yeah,given that Claremont was more just than a comic book writer at Marvel around '87 or so. He had a line of SF novels out around then.

    We've seen the crap called MCU TV Shows guy. You know junk like WandaVision or whatever it was called. Really forgetable stuff.

    It would also still be better than most of Marvel's films.
    You mean a X-movie that actually was a Rocky Horror/Claremont X-Men Comic Book Fusion?

    Yeah. The audience for comic books tend to have taste. That's pretty much why the New Mutants Moive Bombed.

    If Chris Claremont was in charge of the X-movies it would be worse than this



    We have to be real here he's a great comic book writer but he was and is wordy as all hell; it some issues were a chore to read through

    Claremont: Anything is possible. As with anything, thatís the ideal answer Ė and Iíd love to work on any X-project. If I had my druthers, Iíd be writing Uncanny X-Men but regrettably thereís another writer in the way. What one writer wishes rarely comes to pass, but Iím wide open to everything. As for what Foxís plans are, those decisions are made on levels that Iím far removed from.
    I can't find the article. The link takes me to something called "gamesradar."
    https://www.gamesradar.com/tag/x-men// The link-within-a-link to newsarama doesn't help.

    I actually wouldnít mind at all if they made Bobby black for the MCU version. In fact, I really like that idea.
