    The latest movie in the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix, came out in a blaze of... well, not glory. This movie got HORRIBLE reviews - critics and fans alike were NOT here for Jean Grey's big fiery moment. Why was that? Why did this movie do so EPICALLY bad? Well, that's actually on Marvel itself. Oh, I don't mean Marvel Fox - I'm talking Marvel DISNEY and it's cast of Avengers. Specifically, one single Avenger that caused Dark Phoenix to FAIL!

    How come you make no connection to captain marvel and supergirl

    After all, wasn’t supergirls name Kara Zoe-el but was found by a family with the last name of danvers?!!,
    Come one you see it, right?!??

    Kara el danvers
    Carol Danvers

    Wtf mat pat i feel like I’m taking crazy pills

    Does marvel really copy dc???
    Is deathstroke really the origin of deadpool

    Wilson slade
    Wade Wilson

    I mean serously?!?
    Am I making this up???

    At least look like you’re creating your own characters Marvel!!!!!!!

    But those are just the obvious ones
    You then have Batman and iron man with the same basic person
    Ask Batman
    Take away the suit and what are you
    Playboy, philanthropist, billionaire?

            Captain Marvel was a sub-par woke film that owes 85% of it's success to being sandwiched between Endgame and Infinity War. The x-men films just haven't been that good and the marvel films have really highlighted that. I don't think Captain Marvel is a threat to any films, I may be wrong and they may use her well in the future. I won't hold my breathe though. It would be interesting to see DC release a WW film alongside a Cap Marv film and see which comes out on top.

                    And the sad thing is, Dark Phoenix was somehow better than Captain Marvel

                      They should make them the same creature, both benevolent and fearsome. that would be awesome, like dark Phoenix is a split universe of captain marvel. And in the end join into a omnipotent god

                          I think audiences are smart enough to understand that two different movies might present skrulls differently.

                            For me Sophie Turner herself is why I haven't bothered to view this film. Sadly most of the G.O.T. cast will be forever pigeon-holed as their characters in my mind. even with her "redemption" late in the bad seasons I will always hate Sansa for the ignant spoiled brat she is but on top of that I think Sophie is just a shite actress. Coupled with general ip fatigue with the cinematic xmen franchise and its a perfect storm of 'meh'

                                          It didn't. It mismarketed and many people made up their minds months/years before it came out.

                                        I love how Matpat is making Brie Larson look like a good actor.
                                        You know how bland she felt it in Captain Marvel. From the go lucky superhero in the comics to this boring Bland actor in the movies I didn't even want to watch it.

                                                        I actually saw dark phoenix, and not to offend anyone but I thought it was a good movie. Maybe audiences and critics weren't expecting what they saw and disliked it because of that. But oh well, opinions are opinions
