Fox Should Just End the X-Men Movies Now (one opinion, not mine)

08.15.18

The last week has brought some pretty big insights into what's happening at 20th Century Fox's movie division, ever since the studio was acquired by Disney. Those reports have revealed that Fox is still planning on completing work on its two X-Men films in production, The New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but for some fans, the question is quickly becoming: Why bother?

New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix are being positioned as the ending to Fox's X-Men movie universe, before the whole thing is incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some future point. But with both films going through production delays and reshoots, it seems like Fox is pouring money into a losing proposition. Fox should just end the X-Men movie universe now, and be done with it.

WWE Studios, Lionsgate Scare Up ‘See No Evil’ Sequel

Production on “See No Evil 2″ will start in the fall, with identical twin helmersthe Soska Sisters Jen and Sylvia (“American Mary”) set to direct. They are also among the directors that will contribute to the anthology series “ABCs of Death 2.” 

While the Soska Sisters swear that their “lips our sealed as to any details on the story itself, [they] can say that even those who think they know what they’ll be getting are going to be blown away.”

 However, Variety reports that:
“Kane will return as the reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight, who rises from the dead in the city morgue after his killing spree at the Blackwell Hotel and goes after a group of medical students who fight to survive.”
If you’re wondering how the sequel ties in with Gregory Dark’s See No Evil, don’t worry, there’s a loose overlap. In the first film, a group of teens are tasked with cleaning up the abandoned Blackwell Hotel, where Jacob resides and kills."
