Hoping for better than pic related is shilling now?
Fox just throwing shit at the wall was kind of interesting to look at and it worked with Deadpool and sort of worked with Logan. Now we're getting New Mutants and maybe that'll work or maybe that'll be shit.
But interesting experiments aside, the actual X-Men movies they're doing are shit by now. Apocalypse clarified to me that Fox has nothing left to do with X-Men. Their take doesn't work anymore. They've run out of material; they've overdone Xavier and Magneto and Wolverine's Origin story to fucking death. Now they're trying to find a way to make their perfectly serious take more weird and varied. But it doesn't actually work.
I don't even know if I'll even go to see Dark Phoenix anymore. Maybe out of a sense of morbid obligation.
Yes, it'll be sad for the weird side-projects they did, but in terms of the actual X-Men movies, I could not be more happy to see a proper reboot without all of the shitty baggage Singer attached to the franchise all the way back in the early fucking 2000s.
