I would feel better about Dark Phoenix…

…if I thought it would wipe the board. This Dark Phoenix trailer is mega-spoilery, so watch out if you care about that sort of thing.

Anyway. Wipe the board. Cleanse the entire franchise with the sanctifying flame. No further attempts to reconcile the continuity. “Let the past die: kill it, if you have to.” Because I’m sorry but I can’t keep track anymore. I’ve lost the thread, and I spent the entire trailer wondering where Wolverine was (I know where Wolverine is, yes, but I still wondered).

Seriously, they might as well: Disney/Marvel is going to fold the X-Men into the MCU anyway. They need something to drive the next waves, and the X-Men (and the Fantastic Four) can provide that. But since there’s no way to reconcile the MCU and the existing X-Men continuity, well… screw it. Have Dark Phoenix burn it all to the ground.

PS: Then bring in Deadpool for an endscene and he’s wearing Mouse ears. …OK, now I’m being gratuitously cruel here and I don’t know why. I mean, I quite liked First Class and Days of Future Past.

    The lead is an aggressively airheaded lefty, so no, not gonna spend my money there.

    Fox doesn’t want to wipe the board, and they still hold the reins while the merger deal isn’t finalized.
    If it were the Sony/Marvel arrangement in “Far From Home” then Marvel would have some leverage. It isn’t.
