    Although this was not the worst film I ever saw, I believe it was a huge waste of talent, time and resources. The fact Kinberg went back to a story they had already done when they had all of the X-History ahead of them shows not only a disconnect along with a lack of insight, vision and creativity, on his part, but that of those he reports to as well.

    People have been following this series for 19 years, X-Men was there in the early Marvel movie days just after Blade (I don’t count anything else before Blade) and it was very exciting to see them on the screen, however along the way, the genre evolved and this particular series really did not. Yes Deadpool, DoFP and Logan are awesome, but they are also outliers. Deadpool and Logan had to be pushed by specific passionate people to even get out there.

    Again, I don’t think it’s the worst film or even the worst X-film, but the series should have went out on a high. Logan would have been a good period at the end of the sentence, or if that was too much of a downer for you, you could take Logan as a possible alt future and have DoFP as your ending. Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix should not have happened.

    Dark Phoenix has made $250M worldwide.

    That’s only $30M more than The Emoji Movie made.

    Thank you.

    That’s $3M less than what High School Musical 3: Senior Year made in 2008.

    Thank you.

    Dark Phoenix is ranked #99 among all comic book adaptations. That places it $6 million above 1983's Superman III in the #100 spot.

    Does anyone think that DP can earn another $1,044,303 to overtake The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen at #98?

    Didn't think so.

    FFH just crossed a billion. The MCU now has 9 billion dollar films, and Fox still haven’t hit $800m after 2 decades. EG has got closer to $3B than any Fox X-film has got to a billion. 12 out of 23 MCU films beat the best Fox effort. :dry:

    That’s only $10M more than what Batman & Robin made in 1997.

    Thank you.

    The hardest truth about how this series has NEVER connected with audiences. No matter how much I adore some of the films in this series.

    I think the potential was there after X2 to go big, but we all know what happened next. A bit of faith by the higher ups at the right time and things could have been very different. As it is, time for a reboot (despite some very good films), and hopefully this time we get to see many of the X-Men realised to the height of their potential.

    Did anyone think a Black Panther film would ever outgross a X-Men team film by over a billion dollars? (and be over 10 times as big domestically)

    and the fact that Bryan and Kinberg absolutely never got the message is even more frustrating

    Not only did they not get the message, they continued to go further and further the opposite way. Imagine if this franchise was continuing at Fox. How much lower would the numbers have to go before someone realised something was wrong. I dread to think what New Mutants would have made coming out after DP.

    Dark Phoenix has made $250M worldwide.

    That’s only $50M more than what the Yogi Bear movie made in 2010.

    Thank you.

    Dark Phoenix has reached $250M worldwide.

    That’s only costed Fox millions of potential revenue to be earned highly. But due to negative reviews and bad word of mouth, this movie not only costed some folks at Fox to lose their jobs, but also Kinberg left Fox afterwards so he wouldn’t have to get his ass handed to and getting his ass kicked by the fans, the movies-goers, the mouse, and Feige for tanking the X-Men name.

    Thank you.

    So many movies made that were ashamed of the source material. None of the X-Men films (aside from Deadpool) even resemble the comics. It's sad. I don't think it was until Spider-Man in 2002 that comic movies started looking remotely accurate again.

    That’s the same as what The Blair Witch Project made in 1999.

    Thank you.
