As Marvel is getting ready to wrap up its first decade of storytelling with Avengers: Endgame, so too is 20th Century Fox ramping up to be done with making the X-Men franchise such a sub-mediocre slog.
With Disney’s acquisition of Fox a done deal, Dark Phoenix may well be the last of the current franchise of X-Men films. And that sense of a tired, dire, overdue finale is quite present in the new trailer for the film. In this rehash of X-Men: The Last Stand, which already rehashed The Phoenix Saga, Sophie Turner likewise rehashes her cold, power-loving Game of Thrones schtick as a Jean Grey whose mind is consumed by space-firebird, or something like that.
We could possibly be done with this by June 7.
