I’m not sure why, but I am finding it incredibly difficult to get remotely excited for the latest X-Men film, titled Dark Phoenix. Sophie Turner stars as the titular force of raw power that is threatening the entire team, as well as the world.

Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy return, leading the latest batch of X-Men against one of their own.

X-Men: Apocalypse was Fox throwing pure garbage at the screen, which is probably why most aren’t too eager for Dark Phoenix.

Simon Kinberg will be writing/directing this time around, which might mean something fresh behind the lens, but I feel at this point, most are just waiting for Disney to completely absorb Fox and start over.

Which is sad, because X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past are two incredible films that managed to take advantage of both the old and the new cast.

I’d love to someday see Fassbender’s Magneto integrate with Marvel’s Avengers, but I doubt that day will ever happen.

Are you pumped up for Dark Phoenix or do you just want Deadpool 3 already?
