Here’s Why We’re Not Getting Lilandra or the Hellfire Club in ‘Dark Phoenix’

Yes, we know, we’re bagging a lot on Dark Phoenix before even seeing it, and it’s partially because we’re not getting big giant parts of the celestial being’s story.  Things like….Lilandra and the Shi’ar (although we may still be getting the Shi’ar?) and the other big one- The Hellfire Club.

Duncan Jones Asked Twitter About ‘Logans Run’ Remake, and We’re Here For it

We’ve been saying for YEARS that Logan’s Run would be the perfect 70’s science fiction property to get a remake.
