The live-action X-Men films are now available on Disney Plus in Canada.
After Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, the X-Men film series fell under the control of the House of Mouse. However, while a majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films were included with the launch of Disney Plus, the live-action X-Men films have not yet been made available on the streaming service.
Now, Disney Plus has added X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X-Men: Apocalypse in Canada. Notably absent from Disney Plus is the most recent entry in the X-Men film series, Dark Phoenix, and the R-rated films Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan.
While Dark Phoenix will probably be added at a later date, Disney Plus’ family-friendly library makes it seem unlike that the R-rated X-Men films will ever be added. Meanwhile, U.S. Disney Plus subscribers will have to make do with a few of the animated X-Men projects for now.
Marvel Studios confirmed plans to include the X-Men mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during its 2019 San Diego Comic-Con panel. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn exactly what Marvel Studios has planned for the team.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

Here is the official synopsis for season two:
In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Game of Thrones star Iain Glen is on board as Bruce Wayne.
