Films have yet to capture the spirit of the X-Men: Here’s how
In the wake of the tepid reaction to Dark Phoenix being released this month, it is fairly obvious that the movie franchise that undoubtedly paved the way for the hugely ambitious Marvel Cinematic Universe has reached an end, leaving on a whimper instead of a bang. I am a huge fan of the X-Men. I…

11 years, 22 films, 47 hours and 58 minutes later, we reach a satisfying conclusion to a story on an unprecedented epic scale. It is a movie franchise that the world has never seen, and will likely never experience again.

While essentially breaking the film economy by making any other film’s earnings pale in comparison, eyes are on Marvel to see how they tie up the franchise they have spend more than a decade giving life to. Once again, Marvel redefine what it means to be a superhero movie and how, even though we are talking about superpowers and cosmic forces, you can create a story that is rooted within human emotion.
