    I know Inman and I like him, he is a comicbook nerd, so he tends not to like anything that is different. But it wasn't too long ago that he was excusing all the terrible crap DC was releasing.

    Well then that makes him as credible as Robert Meyer Burnett if you ask me. Lol. Not that I even care about anyone else's opinions.

    Anyway, still hope we get a trailer in the next week or two. I mean, why not?

    the weird i noticed was that a few weeks ago he said Ava Duverney was a good choice for new gods but in the video he doesnt like the choice. Do u think he lied or did he change his mind?

    I think the longer they hold off on releasing a teaser or a trailer, the better. Considering the director of this is not the most-loved, he should put out the best footage he can so he can shut his naysayers up.

    So there can be no more excuses from his fans if it does suck.

    Also there’s still eight months to go. Plenty of time to build up hype.

    I know, I'm mostly speaking selfishly. Lol. Pretty sure at this point they'll just wait to release it with Deadpool. I was just thinking about when the teaser trailer for Ragnarok came out. That came out April 10th and Ragnarok came out November 3rd. I guess an extra month to release it with Deadpool isn't a big deal.

    November movies that have released a trailer... Fantastic Beasts, Ralph Breaks the Internet, The Nutcracker.

    Fox needs to step it up, imho.

    What are the chances that this movie will be Rated-R?

    Fox is starting to carve out space in the comic-book movie franchises for R-Rated Film. Their last two films, Logan and Deadpool, are the #1 & #3 highest grossing X-Men films ever. I wouldn't be surprised if they go full-throttle into R-rated Comic-book films. It seems to be working out for them so far.

    I would say 0.01% chance.

    Although I want to see the trailer soon, I understand all this delay in showing a first trailer, after what happened in apocalypse with leaking images, trailer with bad effects being placed for all to see, they must be more concerned about quality before showing to the public, anyway I think we'll see something in April.

    IMO, DP 2 is most likely. Fox xmen film first trailers usually debut 5-6 months before.

    DOFP first trailer was the earliest - 7 months (halloween 2013 - Movie release late May 2014),but thats the outlier .

    They're probably approaching Dark Phoenix the same way they did with Fant4stic. They'll keep things a secret as much as they can, then release a good trailer to impress people. And in this case, impress visually. This movie has everything to look beautiful. They certainly have the time.

    Well, but Kinberg isn't just a co-screenwriter. He's the producer too and the closest thing FOX has of a Kevin Feige, in a sense of him being the one "overseeing" everything. He has much more power and influence than just a simple co-writer. When he talks about XMA for instance, it seems that they made creative decisions together.

    Plus, like 80% of the movies he wrote was pretty bad. Can we say it was all bad execution? No, right? So the fact that he's writing his own script is what makes, for me and other people, the most concerning thing. The point some people are willing to give the "benefit of the doubt" is the point that is making other people go "****, he's directing his own script".

    The power of money. Though Hans Summer isnt eXactly a CBF gold. He scored Bvs, Tasm2 and now this.... What a glowing line of cb films.:o
    Because people are more hyped for Aquaman than this?

    True. I have no idea why people are skeptical of Aquaman i'm sure it'll be a great movie. I can't wait for it.

    DC is just more popular than the X-Men in general especially in the movies.

    With the current streak DC is on, X-Men may pass them soon enough.

    As if X-Men is in a winning streak, all they really have is Deadpool and its spin off. Dark Phoenix might not even outgross Aquaman. While Shazam could possibly outgross the New Mutants neXt year. And there's still Wonder Woman 2. And unlike DC, they don't have to deal with the Disney takeover neXt year.

    No they don't. They need to make a good trailer with good cgi. That Phoenix fire needs to be on point. If it takes a few more weeks or months even. Then so be it. Waiting isn't hurting anything right now. A bad looking trailer would.

    That's not stepping up?

    Not the only that they need a good trailer but they also need good timing. You can't just eXpect to drop a trailer at any moment without considering what day or month or year it is.

    What makes you think I actually want a bad looking trailer? I only think the timing is right since other big November releases have released theirs. You're assuming they don't have something decent ready to go... maybe they're just waiting for Deadpool 2 to be released.
