In the comic book work, the term is commonly known as retcon and the movie going public, we are treated to the repeated trend of reboots. Now, these world cross paths again and the world will receive another retelling of the Dark Phoenix saga, as the trailer for next year’s “X-Men:Dark Phoenix” has been released.

Now, for anyone new to this world, the first time this story arch hit the big screen was in the 2006 movie “X-Men:The Last Stand” In “The Last Stand” the Dark Phoenix was a part of a larger story that revolved around the possible mutant cure, but some of the more hardcore X-Men followers knew this was a type of story that could hold its own in a full feature film.

After watching the trailer, it is easy to see that this story line stands front and center in all of its glory. This movie continues the evolution of the current X-Men era with a harsher edge, as loyalties are in question and, in true blockbuster movie form, humanity is threatened.

As with recent high profiled releases, this film had its original release date changed and reshoots were ordered by the studio. The question could be asked about if this will be an issue with the public view and I will not fall into that debate. This film will probably close the X-Men book for 20th Century Fox, before these mutants fall into the Disney fold and we can only hope this last stand will be one to remember.

A Look At X-MEN:APOCALYPSE

Apocalypse, in the normal world, can bring fear and pain to humanity. Apocalypse, in the world of mutants, can bring fear and pain to humanity, but Apocalypse can bring a power that the most powerful mutants cannot control.

Since his debut, in May of 1986, Apocalypse has been considered the Alpha and Omega of the mutant world of the X-Men. Now, with the release of the trailer for X-Men:Apocalypse, we will finally see this entity on the big screen…

It’s hard to gather the right comments to express the excitement for this movie and the year that 2016 will be for movies. Apocalypse continues to show that a MARVEL movie can survive outside of the MARVEL Cinematic Wonderland (AKA Disney) and a stacked list of characters will be treating fairly.

As this is the first trailer for this production, we can only imagine and know that there will be A LOT more to look forward in the weeks leading to the release.
