No, the problem with this series has always been the characters running around the monsters - the human element that somehow takes up so much of the filmmakers' concern and yet remains so very boring. The film focuses on young Jean Grey, played by Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who struggles to understand her newfound power after a rescue mission in space goes wrong.
"Logan" is the proper finale to the "X-Men" film series. She meets with Charles, and we find out early on that he made alterations to her brain in order to protect her.

The cast of Dark Phoenix has already shed some light on the film's original ending and that it had to be reshot because it was too similar to another superhero movie. This time more attention is paid to the story arcs of Raven Darkhölme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), whose love/hate friendship with Professor X can be the high point of an "X-Men" movie when done right.
In contrast, everything about the story with Jean is fast-tracked.

That's why this movie fails. "We were basically trawling through the source material it seems".
Finally "Captain Marvel" also includes many light and amusing moments, while "Dark Phoenix" only achieves semi-solemnity when it's trying to be upbeat. Captain Marvel was not a ideal movie, but it definitely benefited from having two women working on the screenplay. And a long, red coat does not a Dark Phoenix make. Originally, The New Mutants was supposed to debut on April 13, 2018. This makes sense, although I'm still disappointed McAvoy's "another superhero movie" wasn't, like, Superhero Movie. The X-Men movie is said to be the last movie under the Fox banner before Marvel Studios announces its plan for the X-Men universe. Storm, Rogue, Mystique, and Jean Grey have never been allowed to reach their full potential.

Turner is set to star in the twelfth installment of the X-Men films, Dark Phoenix, playing Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix. Could it be worse? Probably not, but that doesn't mean that there haven't been good films in this franchise; they just mostly focus on the male characters.
