Y'know what's funny? There's the obvious similarities between this movie and Captain Marvel: the 90's setting, the shapeshifting aliens, the crazy-overpowered female protagonist, etc. But there's other things Dark Phoenix didn't do, but in a lot of cases almost did, that would have made the two movies even more similar. -As everyone knows, the finale was going to be some kind of space battle, but was reshot to be a train fight so it wouldn't be too similar to CM. (And let's not forget, CM also had a train fight but it was just a 1-on-1 deal earlier in the film.) -Apparently the aliens were originally going to be Skrulls (I guess Chastain would be playing Queen Veranke, or maybe someone they just made up.) -Captain Marvel played around a lot with the 90's setting, showing off contemporary fashions and music and such. The other X-Men prequels did much the same with their settings, but DP largely doesn't. -And of course, DP was supposed to come out last year but was delayed. If it had come out as planned, it would have beaten CM by a while. I wonder how that would have affected the two movies' reception.
