It’ll be fun to see what direction the X-men universe will head to in the final movie by FOX. Surely Marvel must have plans for the franchise, now that the film rights are back home, prolly with both stand- alone iterations aswell as crossovers with MCU’s other superheroes. Technically speaking, the X-Men are not superheroes, they’re mutants. There are various meetings in different forms and under different circumstances involving the two groups in Marvel’s comics.
In this trailer we find out how Jean Grey (played by Game of Thrones- star Sophie Turner) gets her alias – Phoenix.
This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

Patrick Stewart is retiring from the X-Men franchise. He says that his role in the new mutand superhero movie – Logan – is the last time he portrays professor Charles Xavier. The actor made the announcement at a SiriusXM Twon Hall where he appeared alongside his costar Hugh Jackman and Logan director and co-writer James Manhold. Hugh Jackman also reconfirmed that Logan is his last appearance as mutant Wolverine.
“A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie,” said Stewart. “And I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and — this is an admission — but at one point [Hugh] reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing. Then, the movie ended… and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.’”
Logan takes place in the year 2029, where mutant births have become extremely rare. The defenders of mutant kind, the X-Men, are long gone, and the only remains of them are an old and struggling Charles Xavier and a weary Logan. Logan’s vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn’t seem to work at all. When a young mutant needs his help, Logan has to unsheathe his claws once more. His job isn’t over yet.
Production recently wrapped on Game of Thrones Season 7 and now that actress Sophie Turner’s latest visit to Winterfell has run its course, it’s time for her to begin a new semester at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
Turner was on the red carpet at the 70th British Academy Film Awards last night, where she laid her plans for 2017.
“We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men,” Turner told Hey U Guys, “we’ve just finished shooting Season 7 of [Game of] Thrones, and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts. And then we go on to Season 8.”
Turner’s comments seem to confirm that the next installment of the X-Men film franchise will begin in shooting in May as previously reported, though 20th Century Fox has yet to officially announce the sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse.
