The X-Men franchise has been running for nearly two decades, and it all culminates with Dark Phoenix, a storyline that the movies already covered in 2006. Once again, Jean Grey goes absolutely bonkers with power, but this time Wolverine isn’t around to stab her. The movie has a pretty awful score on Rotten Tomatoes and definitely raises a lot of questions. Like what’s the deal with the aliens, are they bulletproof or not? Why was Quicksilver dismissed from the movie so quickly? What was up with that Phoenix moment in X-Men Apocalypse? Why do these movies keep jumping forward a decade each time? Is Magneto supposed to be 62 years old, and if so, why is a 42-year-old with no make-up playing him? Why did they show Mystique dying in the trailer?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the pitch meeting that led to Dark Phoenix! It’s super easy, barely an inconvenience!

My theory is that the reason why this movie wasn't good is because it assumed that everyone in the audience would already be deeply invested in the Jean Grey character and that the Phoenix stuff was more inherently interesting than it was. The successful Marvel movies don't do that -- they don't assume that you already love the characters and they take the time to get you in their side before asking you to fall for them.

I think screenwriter guy’s mom must have been one of the strippers from Gypsy: “Ya gotta have a gimmick!”
Using MAKE-BELIEVE instead of Make-up is TIGHT

You know what would be crazy? If Marvel Studios used a third Dark Phoenix storyline reboot to introduce the mutants to the MCU, and they nailed it like the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. That would be insane.

I liked Dark Phoenix. No Rotten Tomatoes score can tell me what to like! My 10yo nephew liked it too.....so.....yeah....there's that.

X-Men story progression... It's like taking Marvels story line and lobotomizing Tony Stark, curing Banner and making Thor's banishment/removal of powers permanent. Good job DC! You nailed it. That's exactly what we wanted. (X-Men Last Stand)

Using Rotten Tomatoes in your final screen shot? I guess even the greats have to slum it once in a while.

I loved this film, but frankly the lack of even trying to age up the characters was a bit distracting.

@Blixx Did you know that the Hellfire Club were originally going to be the villains for the movie? The ending with Jean flying off into a space was setting her up to eat a star in the sequel.

@Devil oh yes i meant the movie..i have around 300 comics from the 90s..the original infinity saga i have complete in plastic. the comics are way better..and I'm not one of those who say the book is better than the movie but comics are.
