8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie

Previous1 of 9

X-MenSo it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big-screen as soon as possible.

There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focus on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.

Did I miss your favorite character? Well, let me know in the comment section why they should be included! So hit Next to see the eight mutants I think Fox should bring to the big-screen next!

    Personally, I’m pretty sick of Mystique and Magneto.

    Bishop, X23 and Collosus/Kitty Pryde sound the most interesting to me. I’m most interested in an X23 film though. Perhaps in a few with Ms. Keen playing her again!

    I don’t think Fox should rely on stand alone spin offs, X-Men, New Mutants, Deadpool and the eventual X-Force are enough X-Men movies for me.

    Mystique – Kill Jennifer Law… sorry, Mystique, kill Mystique, or just put her aside;
    Bishop – He will be in X-Force, or at least be mentioned, then we can have a Cable movie with him as the villain;
    Emma Frost – I don’t think we should get a movie about Emma, but i would sure like to see her again as an antagonist to the X-Men;
    X-23 – It depends, will there be an older version of her in X-Force?
    Multiple Man – no;
    Magneto – After a few years, sure but he has to stop appearing on all X-Men movies, First Class was his movie though;
    Colossus/ShadowCat – They’ll probably be on the next X-Men film(or New Mutants);
    Beast – He is in the X-Men movies, also probably in New Mutants.

      X-23 is a must. Cast Sofia Boutella as X-23 (having taken up the ‘Wolverine’ mantle from Logan). During X-Force she should either be introduced to us/Deadpool as a member of the team that Cable acquired from the future (aka ‘Logan’ is canon, Cable went to the future & retrieved the 24-30 y/o) or part of the movies plot is Cable and Deadpool putting the team together, so we actually SEE the first meeting and recruitment of X-23/Wolverine/Laura.

      Now if fans go wild for Sofia’s X-23/Wolverine, then you green light a spin-off. Keep her tone similar to ‘Wolverine’ and ‘Logan’ in that she is a street level, realistic, human mutant and not the big, wild, tons of powers, stop the world from ending type.
