Wolverine and Deadpool are the only characters suitable for R ratings due to there violent nature, But the majority of X-Men always appeal to all ages.

Correct. The core X-Men movies need to be PG-13, they should be. But the Wolverine movies should have always been the R-rated "adult" alternative. Not just now, with the "final" one, and just because their low budget/experimental Deadpool made money.

Sophie Turner is only in her early 20's yet she looks 30 already. Goddamn, some women age way too fast.

Cool. Another rushed Dark Phoenix script from Simon Kinberg.

Weird that this is supposedly shooting in a few months despite no director or official release date.

Right. There has been absolutely no announcement about Singer or no Singer.

I am glad they're continuing to use the new young cast. Scott, Jean, Storm, Nightcrawler have some good young actors now, I'd like to see them grow into their roles. And hey, maybe Jubilee will get more than 30 seconds of screentime in this movie.

I suspect that, after the rather lukewarm BO intake of 'Apocalypse', they're doing some light damage control... something tells me Ms. Turner was not supposed to spill the beans on this quite yet!

Didn't Singer say he wouldn't be directing this one? Now I'm worried they're bringing him back since there has been zero publicity on this so far. I want to say Singer said he had a movie lined up for later in the year and he's doing the X-Men pilot for Fox because he had an opening.

Even without Singer it'll probably still suck since Kinberg is writing it but hopefully they'll bring in someone without a black leather fetish.

Do I dare hope that Vaughn could be coming back to the X-Men? First Class rocked. But then again, there's a new Kingsman coming out. :/

Maybe after Kingsman 2, we can get another Vaughn X-Men movie...

Yeah, they'll never get Vaughn back. I would have loved two more from him though

Can you imagine? I'd have love to have seen his "Days of Future Past."

He said something about "blah blah, Apocalypse wraps up a trilogy and I'm very happy about that," which kind of infers some hand washing of the franchise. But not necessarily.

It'll be pretty ironic if their big "Phoenix Saga, Take 2" movie is rushed out with another B-list director like Ratner. X-Men 3 for Fox all over again. I bet they'll "win" back Singer. That's probably important to them.

Ratner > Singer

The Last Stand > X 1 & 2

Oh, I agree. And that was with being rushed to meet a seemingly impossible deadline. With some proper pre-production, Ratner could have done an even better job.

I'm actually surprised they are carrying on with this version of the X-Men.

With Deadpool signaling a fresh start and Logan closing the door on Jackman as Wolverine, this would be the ideal time to start fresh with the X-Men.
