What is FOX thinking? That Civil War wave lasting all month.
I thought this movie was coming out in July or August. They buggin for real. Almost seems like a set up.
I feel like fox ain't been making the money they should have been making off of these xmen films
Like deadpool made more than DOFP..
X1 made 296 and x2 made 407.. X3 459
Since First Class really, right around the time other cbms were getting better from visuals to story quality, the FOX-Men movies have been under performing when you consider their full potential but their want of Singer and aversion to shaking things up has kept them satisfied with that.
The same way Avengers and IM3 did billions had DC/WB rushing to get their cinematic shared universe going, FOX should've got down to brass tacks and really give Marvel fans the X-Men and Fantastic Four movie universe they deserve but nope we got more pussyfooting around about them possibly crossing over and then a **** movie and then an underwhelming one.
There's no reason the X-Men can't be a billion dollar movie franchise other than picking the wrong writers and directors to do these movies.

X-men got legs though.. Waaay more characters to build a universe around...there's a reason sony had to get in bed wit disney...singular characters isolated from everything aint da move anymore...
That standalone Venom movie is a train wreck waitin to happen if they dont connect him wit spiderman
Not to mention the movies were made coming off a decade where the X-Men were at their most popular.
The first Spider-Man movie came out in between X1-X3 and completely outdid it by far.
