‘Dark Phoenix’ Director Teases Extraterrestrial Characters In The ‘X-Men’ Film

X-Men Dark Phoenix Sophie Turner Jean GreyAt the Deadpool 2 premiere, Dark Phoenix Director Simon Kinberg revealed some new details on the upcoming X-Men film based on the Dark Phoenix saga.

Kinberg, speaking with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, revealed that the film would be much more comic accurate than X-Men: The Last Stand‘s attempt at the Dark Phoenix comic book storyline. Kinberg also said that the film will introduce extraterrestrial characters:

“It’s much more loyal to the original comic than X-Men 3, which told the Dark Phoenix story. It’s a movie that involves extraterrestrial characters, which is not something that we’ve done in the X-Men franchise before, and is something that is a huge part of the Dark Phoenix saga in the comics.”

Kinberg added that his directorial debut will be, “a little less operatic” than the previous X-Men films and said, “It’s more intense and it’s more real and grounded, and hopefully more relatable.”

It will be interesting to see how Dark Phoenix turns out, with rumors of extensive reshoots planned, the film’s release date being delayed, and the X-Men rights potentially reverting back to Marvel Studios.

5 Essential Cable Stories To Read Before His Debut In ‘Deadpool 2’

Josh Brolin Cable Deadpool 2Now that it’s official Josh Brolin will be suiting up as Cable in Deadpool 2, it’s time for everyone to get a crash course on the character so they can say “that’s not how it happened in the comic” when they see the movie with their friends.

Nathan Summers, the future son of Cyclops and Jean Grey, first debuted in 1986, but he didn’t make his full debut as Cable until 1990. Rob Liefeld designed him to be a leader more prone to take action than Xavier and that character trait has persisted throughout his long history. Cable has fought alongside the X-Men in the past as well as fought for mutants survival against the government in a dark future.

Cable is the straight-man to Deadpool’s goofball and I can’t wait to see the two of them come together next year in Deadpool 2. Hopefully Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin have the chemistry to bring this legendary bro-mance to the bigscreen, otherwise Fox will be hearing from a lot of angry fans.
