All X-Men Movies Ranked Best to Worst, By Rotten Tomatoes Rating

X-Men Dark Phoenix tells the origin story of Jean Grey, played by Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.

All of which is to answer the question, should you stick around until the very end of the closing credits for any surprises or hints about what the future might hold for the X-Men?

It's truly the end of an era with Dark Phoenix. Despite how cringe that "X-Women" line is, the women of the X-Men are iconic and some of the most powerful in the Marvel universe, and we have yet to see them be done justice in this franchise. Built around a neatly constructed tension and the looming spectre of dissension in the X-Men's ranks, the interpersonal relationships between the characters prove to be way more gripping than the lion's share of the combat or depictions of each mutant's powers.

First there is the infamous 2006 film "X-Men: The Last Stand", of which this movie is practically a remake.

From there, we flash-forward to 1992 and the film's central plot springs into life courtesy of an audacious search-and-rescue mission in space.

They talked for a short while before we moved onto gameplay of Kashyyyk, a point that takes place about three hours into the game. That is changing with Fallen Order , which gives players a glimpse into the life of a Jedi after Order 66 and the Jedi Purge.

On top of more melodrama than a 1950's Joan Crawford movie, there's Jessica Chastain as Vuk, an alien who is able to inhabit everything about a human being except their eyebrows. It re-adapts the famous comics storyline wherein powerful telepath Jean Grey (here played by Sophie Turner) fuses with an alien entity that amps up her powers, previously seen in 2006's mostly bad X-Men: The Last Stand. X-Men also introduced the movie going world to the character of Wolverine.

Kinberg explained that he initially wrote the group of mutants, led by Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), being split apart rather than coming back together as they do in the theatrical version of the film. Unless you were always dying to know how Wolverine got that leather jacket he wears in a bunch of the other movies, you can safely skip it.

Sophie Turner (L) and Jessica Chastain are pictured in a still or Twentieth Century Fox's "X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX", out June 7, 2019.

Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for X-Men Dark Phoenix. This makes sense, although I'm still disappointed McAvoy's "another superhero movie" wasn't, like, Superhero Movie. But more than changing the setting of a big battle, Dark Phoenix tweaked its ending to something that would appeal more to fans who had just flocked to Marvel Studios' other cosmically powered female superhero.

We made a decision to take a look back at the reviews for all 12 movies in the cinematic universe of X-Men. I kind of wonder if this movie came out first, if Captain Marvel would have been accused of plagiarism. While a lot of the action feels like a case of déjà vu and the dialogue laboured, both his fight sequences and his interactions with the other characters carry a weight to them that is distinctly lacking across the board. There is even an element of "Shazam!" in the opening scene, which gives Jean Grey a backstory similar to that of the "Shazam!" antagonist. OK Marvel, let's see what you can do! X-Men: Dark Phoenix is in theaters now.
