When it was announced that Disney and Fox are going to be merged, the first thing that broke the internet was the idea of having X-Men in the MCU. And, since then we’ve been asking the question about their incoming from every person on the planet. Meanwhile, the franchise that has been an important part of every superhero fan out there is going to going to say goodbye to us. Yes, we are talking about X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the last movie of the franchise, as it is going, to sum up, the stories of all these 20 years. But, what is going to happen after this? Well, director Simon Kinberg tried to answer this question.
We all are concerned about the future of X-Men after the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix. As many fans fear that Disney is going to hold these characters for some years and will make them return when all the memories of recent actors will fade away. ComicBook.com asked the same question from Simon Kinberg and here’s what he said,
“The easy answer is, no, I don’t know the answer. And I don’t know that Marvel or Disney knows the answer yet either. I think everybody is still figuring it out.”
After this, the director went on to talk about his approach for Dark Phoenix, as he stated,
“Even long before the Disney of it all, three years ago, I started writing the script [for Dark Phoenix]. I approached this movie as the culmination of 20 years of storytelling, of living with the X-Men for all this time, and watching this family come together. And this movie is the movie that challenges that family and tears them apart in a new way, and so I imagined it as the culmination. And I even pitched it to the studio as this is the culmination of this cycle of X-Men stories, which there will be more X-Men movies in the future, no doubt, but this particular cycle with this cast, it felt like it was time to do kind of what Game of Thrones has done, what Endgame has done, really see them challenged in a new way, and survive and go off into the sunset.”
