‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ To Introduce Dazzler In A ‘Swift’ Way

As the next film in the X-Men franchise, “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” progresses the story forward after “X-Men: Apocalypse” changed the course of the franchise. While there were a few new introductions in the last film, this upcoming movie plans to give some screen time to an 80s fan favorite character that was briefly mentioned. Dazzler will be making her way to the big screen in this X-Men film but only for a short time. And while many fans were expecting the rumors of Taylor Swift being courted for the role to be true, it sounds like she’s officially out of the running for the part.

New Han Solo Film in Need of New Directors

Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller have left their jobs as directors of the new Han Solo film. Disney has been kept us chock full of new Star Wars films. The idea was to make an anthology series to go along with the main saga. The next is a spin-off showing the origin of Han Solo. We’ve had photos and other news that seemed to indicate the production was moving along smoothly. Recently that all changed as it was announced halfway during the making of the film, they lost their directors. This isn’t terribly unusual as directors and studios part ways all the time. However, usually it happens earlier in pre-production before cameras start rolling. The fact this is happening essentially at the midpoint of production is very surprising.

How’s Universal’s Dark Universe Going?

Universal is off to a less than desirable start with their new Dark Universe. This was originally going to be an extra section in my main review for “The Mummy” much like how I did with my TBT review of “Howard the Duck.” However, there seemed to be enough stuff to talk about the Dark Universe so I decided to do a separate article dedicated to it. Plus I’m waiting a bit for those who plan on seeing it to view it. So SPOILERS ahead. The other nice thing about doing it this way is that it gives me more of a chance to see the fate of this film. Let’s just say that my review of calling it “meh…” is basically the closest it has to a glowing review… yeah.

Fantastic Four to Return to Marvel?! Unfortunately NO

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it would seem that The Fantastic Four won’t be returning back to Marvel anytime soon. After all this time with fans hoping that Fantastic Four might follow in Spider-Man’s footsteps and find its way back to Marvel to join the MCU Kevin Feige has been quoted as saying they have “no plans with the Fantastic Four right now. No discussions about it.” This does indeed line up with statements he made before about FOX and Marvel making a compromise like with Sony. Although I would also remind you that Sony and Marvel did keep denying anything was happening between them until they were ready to make the official announcement.

Review: ‘The Mummy’ Kicks Off Dark Universe With a Resounding “Meh..”

“The Mummy” is one of those weird franchises. The original “Mummy” film from the 30s is considered a classic. Although it’s not terribly interesting. It’s a total rip-off of the original “Dracula” just with a Mummy played by Boris Karloff instead of a vampire by Bela Lugosi. All the iconic images of the film are in the 1st third and not representative of the rest. The sequels are where most of what popular culture knows of “The Mummy” comes from. Then, there is the remake series in the 90s starring Brendan Fraser (btw I’m shocked how many people are still so attached to that version) which made a lot of money, but I don’t think even the fans would really call a great film. Also, it’s completely different from the original. But how does this new remake stand on its own?
