X-Men Dark Phoenix

After exploring major events through respective decades on Earth, the next X-Men film, which is said to take place during the 1990s, could take the mutant superheroes to a place where no X-Men has gone before: space.

Bryan Singer, who is still on the X-Men: Apocalypse promotional tour – read our review of the film here – has talked a little bit about where the sequel could go. Given that First Class took place in the 60s, Days Of Future Past in the 70s, and Apocalypse in the 80s, obviously the 90s would be that next logical choice. But it should be interesting what major event of that decade the film decides to use to move the plot, but if what Singer says is true, then it’s quite possible that the X-Men could find themselves in the final frontier dealing and contending with a force unlike anything they have ever seen before. More on the story here below.

In an interview with Fandango, Singer confirmed that new X-Men sequel would take place in the 90s, and teased an alien element that would be introduced to the film franchise. Here’s the full comment:

“Another thing that’s been introduced in the comics is a big alien, interstellar tenant within the X-Men universe that hasn’t been explored. And to me, that might be kind of fun because I’m a huge Star Wars and Star Trek fan, and exploring the X-Men universe and being able to utilize that would be exciting, visually.”

This would be the first time that the all-powerful entity has been introduced into the film franchise. It was first teased at the end of X2: X-Men United. X-Men: The Last Stand, a film that most of us would like to pretend never happened, used elements of “The Dark Phoenix Saga.” However, with Days Of Future Past resetting the film’s timeline, it fixes some of those narrative problems giving way to the Dark Phoenix character being introduced more properly.

The Phoenix Force first introduced when Jean Grey is exposed to the deadly radiation of a solar flare. She then briefly attains her ultimate potential as a telepath and telekinetic, eventually becoming a being of pure thought. Having reformed herself upon return to Earth with the new costume, identity and power of “Phoenix” and helped prevent the complete destruction of the universe by repairing the damaged energy matrix at the core of the M’Kraan Crystal. She also falls prey to the villainous Mastermind and White Queen, the latter of whom was confirmed to be killed in Days Of Future Past. Through manipulation and control, began to plant the seeds of dissent within her fragile psyche by comparing her to a god and insisting she can do whatever she wants. She would eventually break free of his control, but by doing so she also became the Dark Phoenix, where she the obtained the power to consume stars and kill entire solar systems.

It remains to be seen if Singer will even go this narrative route, but judging by the quotes, it seems like the direction he wants the X-Men film franchise to take. Fox will most likely wait to see how well X-Men: Apocalypse performs at the box office before they can proceed with anything. We’ll keep you up to date should anything come up.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters on May 20, 2016.
