New xmen Apocalypse sequel

Bogus or not, fans eagerly try to decipher every little clue from these code titles. It’s heavily speculated that the plot will revolve around Jean Grey and her Phoenix abilities, which was hinted at in X-Men: Apocalypse. Actress Sophie Turner is attached to reprise her role as the younger Jean Grey from Apocalypse in the next X-Men installment, which will reportedly begin rolling camera in Montreal this summer, possibly in June. Kinberg himself is reportedly a front-runner to direct the film.

The Jean Grey/Phoenix storyline, though explored in the original X-Men movie trilogy (see X-Men: The Last Stand), is a fan-favorite and a logical, arguably safer, next place to take the newer films. As is the opinion of most fans, Kinberg calls The Last Stand a “Dark Phoenix movie that we didn’t get quite right” and continues to hint that the next X-Men movie will redo the Phoenix story:

I think of maybe a few mistakes we made in that movie — and every movie has mistakes — but the main mistake we made in that movie was taking the Dark Phoenix story, which is such a vast and profound saga, and making it the subplot of the movie as opposed to the main plot of the movie. I think if we were to make a Dark Phoenix movie in the future, it would be a Dark Phoenix movie about her struggle, and really should be the A plot and the primary of the movie.

Agreed. He doesn't fit into the street raised, rough edge image that Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage do. I'm interested to see how the Defenders will go.

Saw Logan last night. I can understand why it's not for everyone(it's not paced or built like what everyone has come to expect a superhero-comic book movie to be) but, it is the best of the Wolverine movies, period. I personally loved it because the concentration on the tortured Logan as opposed to the spectacle of Wolverine is exactly the Wolverine story I've wanted as a movie forever. Also, belligerent Xavier is an awesome thing I didn't even know I wanted.

Iron Fist is definitely the worst Marvel Netflix series but it's not all bad. The 1st few episodes are a drag but it picks up later. The ending is pretty disappointing. But overall it was okay. Agents of Shield is still worse. Can't wait to see what's in store in the Defenders

New Justice League movie trailer is pretty cool. It has a more fun tone to it. Going to be action packed. Fun popcorn movie, even for the haters.

Been meaning to check out Legion but haven't really had the time. Personally, I am waiting on American Gods to start up. That's likely to be the next series I get into.

ENTERTAINMENT - Movies
Spider-Man out of Marvel Cinematic Universe after 'Homecoming 2'?
Mark Daniell
Today at 12:43 PM

Tom Holland as Peter Parker in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming.'
Now that Spider-Man is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you may want to enjoy his web-slinging antics while you can.
At least when it comes to seeing him battle evil alongside Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the Avengers.
After appearing in this summer’s Homecoming, Spidey will show up in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War and then his own Spider-Man sequel in 2019. That’s where Tom Holland’s deal to play the web-crawler in the MCU ends.
He is contracted to play the hero in six films – three solo pictures and three appearances in the MCU.
Amy Pascal, the former chief of Sony Pictures, and producer on Spider-Man: Homecoming, hinted that Spider-Man could exit the MCU after those two films, making Spider-Man 3 something that would be set up outside plotlines being established in Marvel’s Phase 3 and 4.
“One of the things that I think is so amazing about this experience is that you don't have studios deciding to work together to make a film very often,” Pascal told CosmicBookNews at CinemaCon. “In fact, it may never happen again – after we do the sequel.”
Marvel has creative control of the web-slinger until 2019, but Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man and several hundred related characters, and is planning its own Marvel universe of films that will be kick-started with Venom and followed by stand-alone films on Black Cat and Silver Sable.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Holland revealed he has no idea how it will all shake out after his sequel to Homecoming.
"They give you options and those could be exercised whenever. Like a cameo in Avengers," Holland said of Marvel. "I'm unclear as to which movies though. I do know I have three Spider-Man [appearances in other] movies and three solo movies contracted.”
Despite the deals not lining up perfectly, our bet is that Holland’s Spidey will continue well into the 2020s. It makes no sense to have a third Spider-Man outside of the MCU, and we’re thinking that the wall-crawler could play a big part in Marvel’s cinematic feature.
“Once we get into 2021, 2022, 2023… We want to continue stories in unique ways with characters that we’ve established,” Marvel studio boss Kevin Feige told the Sun last year. “There’s facing the crossroads of how to adapt characters after they’ve had five or six or seven appearances. Then there’s choosing the new ones... and we certainly know what the handful of those are going to be.”

After the 2nd Homecoming trailer my concerns are reinforced...

Disappointing..Maybe it's just the trailer editing? Marvel trying to drum up excitement/momentum by using Iron Man/Downey (the face of the studio and cash cow) to get fans pumped?..

And WAY too many shots of Spidey in battle sans his mask..

:(

So Sony is letting Marvel get the character back on track and then gonna run it into the ground after? Sounds about right. Marvel should just **** Sony's day and kill him in off Avengers haha.

I think Marvel will provide the best Spiderman movie we've seen. What was the last 'bad' MCU movie? And what are you comparing that to?

It seems Marvel has the Superhero movie thing figured out and is just releasing blockbuster after blockbuster. With a character as popular as Spiderman making his marvel solo debut (with Iron Man no less) I'm sure it will be a crowd pleaser.

Imo some hardcore comic book fans (and especially Spiderman fans) are just way too picky.

Dr. Strange may not have been bad, but it wasn't very good.

I also did not like Age of Ultron and became bored during Civil War, but I'm in the minority on that last one I think.

That's fair. Everyone that has watched/followed the MCU has their rankings and favorites. My point was that even the AoU and Cap3 were still very entertaining movies in the Superhero genre and imho way better than any other Superhero movie other than the Nolan Batman Trilogy.

They have alot invested in the success of Spiderman and it's arguably the most popular character. I think the studio will deliver.

Strongly disagree on Dr. Strange and Civil War. AoU was poorly done though.

DC is so screwed up, right now it just needs to worry about making sure its headliner movies are at least halfway a success.

How many directors has The Batman movie seen so far? How many times has Aquaman and other DC movies been delayed?

I like Marvel & DC equally (my favorite superheroes are Batman & Spider-Man), but DC has really screwed up trying to play catch-up with MCU. Marvel laid out a well-thought-out plan years and years ago. In trying to build its universe, DC is like 10 years behind and feels like they're playing catch-up and rushing everything.

Hopefully Wonder Woman is good. Hopefully Justice League is good. But we'll see.

I don't think The Batman is indicative of DC being screeed up at all. Affleck was always going to direct it -- it's not like it was musical chairs. If he felt it was too much for him to do it justice, then I think it's a very good thing that he stepped down. Plus, the landed a fantastic "back up" in Matt Reeves.
