    Even though I'm happy with the movie we got I'd love to see the original version. I have the feeling that the ending was better.

    The dude wrote the same film twice, and directed the last version of it himself. How many tries does he need to achieve mediocrity?

    But don’t you see? Dark Phoenix’s coat wasn’t the right shade of red that Kinberg wanted; Psylocke/Selene was wearing the wrong tank top that day; Kid Omega/Red Lotus...I mean Ariki...was imbued the wrong hair power; Cyclops/Mystique died the wrong way; Xavier hid the wrong secret; Magneto/Xavier moved the wrong chess piece; etc.

    Kinberg’s script was perfect but X3’s Brett Ratner and Dark Phoenix’s *checks list* Simon Kinberg ruined everything.

    I'd laugh if they released the original version of Dark Phoenix and it did even worse than the current theatrical version and was even more savaged by critics.

    I would be more inclined to laugh at the masochists in line at the theater.

    THIS TIME!!

    What if it is considerably worse? Would they still say it's better than the theatrical release and try to convince themselves of the fact?

    What if it's a masterpiece and every critic love it? And they go and say "Why didn't they release this version in theater?".

    I think a Snyder cut of JL is more likely than ever seeing this. Disney wants people to forget about this version of the X-Men for the on-coming reboot. They won't invest money into making a new cut of a movie that tanked this badly. Much the same can be said of a new cut of JL, but I think there is more demand for that right now with its ongoing campaign than this will ever get and JL is a more infamous production. This movie will be largely forgotten by history.

    Maybe they could release a combined cut of the original Fant4stic and the original version of Dark Phoenix cobbled together from all the existing footage out there which they can call the Kinberg cut.

    If they did do that, then Trank can tweet again "4 years ago I had mediocre version of this which received terrible reviews. Now it's even worse!" :o

    This will be even less successful then Dark Phoenix and even less people will care. Congrats to the 4 Kinberg fans on the planet who created something even more irrelevant culturally then his film, I didn't think it was possible. Crap doesn't fall far from the tree.

    Well then they can always release it ahead of next year's Oscars and see if it could've been a contender.

    Kinberg will probably be President of the Academy by then, so there is a chance.

    Dude, I wish Spider-Man 3 had been great. I really do. However, as much as I did NOT hate it, I didn't jump up and shout, "Give me the Raimi CUT! Studio interference forced Venom into this film! I want the true version!"
    Would it have been better? Probably. However, it doesn't exist, and, unlike Park Phoenix, which is bombing, it made a ton of money back in the day, so there was no need to re-release it. Dark Phoenix didn't even pull in HALF of JUSTICE LEAGUE'S opening weekend.
    Not. Even. Half.
    Justice League actually had 2 directors who had different visions of it. Now, Snyder's vision was crap, and Whedon's was half-baked Avengers-lite, but there were two distinct films vying for screen time and direction. An argument could be made for a director's cut from Snyder (for whatever reason someone would want that crap), especially since there is an extended cut of BvS which, although still pretty bad, is marginally less bad than the theatrical cut.

    Kinberg helped write the movie. He directed the movie. He has been outed as having done DAILY rewrites on set, keeping the actors from having ANY chance to really settle into their characters or have a clue as to what is going on. He directed his script and now people expect a director's cut of a film under one director who also wrote it...?

    Nope. This was the director's cut. Best case, you get deleted scenes of the original ending. The studio will be more than happy to cut and run, make a boxed set with all the X-movies, and throw this film in there. I mean, it can still be used as a coaster while you watch the good movies. No need to ruin a perfectly good end table, after all.

    You spelled Razzies wrong, which coincidentally is usually the around the same time Oscars are announced.

    JLaw wasn't especially bad in this, at least not to the point where it sticks out from her bad performances in the previous instalments, but I can see her getting a nom.
