X-Men: Dark Phoenix Has Officially Wrapped Production

Posted by October 14, 2017 Comment

We just got the trailer for X-Men: The New Mutants, but there are two other X-Men movies coming out in 2018. The last one, that is due out in November 2018, wrapped production today, according to director Simon Kinberg.

That's a wrap. #darkphoenix #xmenmovies 11.2.18

This movie, which is promising to do the Dark Phoenix story and get it right this time, is the X-Men movie that people are talking about the least. The reviews for X-Men: Apocalypse were not exactly positive. And while movies like Deadpool 2 and the The New Mutants are promising a very different X-Men movie experience, all evidence thus far points to this one following a formula that appears to not be working anymore. There were rumors that the X-Men were finally going to embrace outer space and get weird on us, but those were shut down. It’s yet another “grounded” X-Men movie.

Kinberg has a few more behind-the-scenes pictures on his Instagram of various cast members, but no hints as to what we can really expect from the film.

Ladies and gents, power incarnate, THE DARK PHOENIX. A bright and shining light. Miss you too @sophiet 💫
