Iron Man Had an Alternate Post-Credits Scene Where Nick Fury Referenced the X-Men

Iron Man’s post-credits scene was a game-changing moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because it was the very thing that established the MCU in the first place. However, as revealed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, there was a version that not only teased the arrival of the Avengers, but could’ve blown Marvel’s whole door wide open. Read More >>

Three Legendary Marvel Comics Covers Are Getting the Limited Edition Poster Treatment

Starting later today you can get Amazing Fantasy #15, Uncanny X-Men #1, and The Incredible Hulk #181 for $40 (£32) each. Now, they’re limited edition posters instead of the actual comics – but for most of us, that’s probably as close as we’ll ever get to owning those legendary issues. Read More >>

Dark Phoenix’s VFX Supervisor Opens Up About the Astonishing Jean Grey That Could Have Been

Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix will go down in history as one of the most perplexing of Fox’s X-Men films. It was a movie that didn’t seem to know what it wanted to be – or even who the X-Men are, frankly. One minute, the X-Men are jetting off into space to have a literally out-of-this-world adventure that brings them face to face with aliens, and the next, you’ve got Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey crying in a rainy alleyway.

Stoke Grandad’s Secret 1960s Comic Haul Goes to Auction

65-year-old Reginald Clay passed away in March of this year, with one of his final requests being that his surviving family raid the "special cupboard" he had up in the loft that contained his comic collection. And it was significantly more impressive a personal anthology than a few battered issues of Beano and some Roy of the Rovers annuals. Read More >>

A Crazed Attempt to Discern the X-Men Movie Timeline in Its Entirety After Dark Phoenix

Nineteen years after it all began, and helped usher in the early waves of the superheroic cinema dominance we see today, Fox’s X-Men saga is at an end with the release of Dark Phoenix. It may have gone out in a damp squib rather than truly fiery flames, but it now means we have a complete, and utterly batshit, chain of events to break down. Read More >>

Dark Phoenix’s Simon Kinberg Took Inspiration From Nolan’s Batman to Bring the X-Men Down to Earth

There’s an unsteady, chaotic energy coursing through much of Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix. It almost feels like an extension of the existential crisis its titular hero finds herself in as she becomes the most powerful mutant to ever walk the Earth. That feeling, according to Kinberg, was a wholly intentional part of his directorial debut. Read More >>

Part of Dark Phoenix’s Box Office Failure Might Be Thanks to…Alita: Battle Angel?

In the sort of nerdy debate over who would win between the cosmic fury of the Phoenix Force and a cyborg warrior from Mars, you never thought the answer “whichever was backed by James Cameron” would be the deciding factor. And yet, here we potentially are? Read More >>

Here’s What Could’ve Happened in an X-Men vs. Fantastic Four Movie

Earlier this decade, as Marvel Studios was building toward its own mega-movie crossover, Fox was doing the same thing. A new report claims the studio hired writers and even courted a director to make an X-Men vs. Fantastic Four crossover movie, and now details have emerged on what that might have looked like.

The X-Men’s Quicksilver Speeds Into Space in This Surprisingly Cool Dark Phoenix Clip

Evan Peters’ Quicksilver in Fox’s most recent X-Men films has been one of the franchise’s most interesting characters, in part because of the innovative way filmmakers have taken to visualising his super speed. Dark Phoenix wouldn’t be a proper X-Men sendoff without the silver-haired speed demon, and in a new clip from the film, he gets his time to shine.

Jonathan Hickman Returns to Marvel Comics With Two X-Men Books

Jonathan Hickman has had some legendary Marvel runs. His Fantastic Four saga is still shaping depictions of the first family of Marvel, and his Avengers run is almost equally as beloved. Now, after a couple years away, Hickman is back, writing not one, but two X-Men books. Read More >>

This Dark Phoenix Trailer Is Light Years Better Than the Last One

I didn’t love the last trailer for Dark Phoenix. It seemed busy for the sake of being busy. Shocking for the sake of being shocking. And it assumed everyone watching already knew what Jean Grey was about to go through when given this sinister new power. For me, it just didn’t work. If Fox had released this trailer, though, I would have been singing its praises. So now I’ll do just that. Read More >>
