Update On X-Men: The Dark Phoenix

Heading for theatres on November 2nd, 2018, Dark Phoenix is indeed a prime candidate for expanding the X-Men universe into the cosmos. That’s because the focus of the film will be Jean Grey and the Phoenix Force – which, in the source material, hails from outer space – and X-Men franchise architect Bryan Singer has previously suggested that the specific success of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy indicates that the stories of the mutants should now be less earth-bound.

In a recent interview, producer Hutch Parker returned to the subject of external influence of other, more intergalactic superhero franchises, and hinted that things are indeed about to get cosmic for the X-Men.

He said “I can’t really speak to anything specifically but I think the challenge as offered by all the films we’ve mentioned [including Guardians Of The Galaxy] is very – we’re very aware of the challenge that those movies pose and what it sort of demands of us as storytellers mining, again, one of the great comic runs in The Dark Phoenix Saga. Our hope and expectation is to try and do something that feels different, that takes the audience into a different tone and a different sense of cinematic style that is appropriately suited to the story we’re telling. We… know that it’s not as simple as picking up where we left off in anyway. We actually have to be more bold [sic] and more inventive than that. [Getting cosmic] is certainly a possibility. That is certainly a possibility. Yes.”
