Jenn, Dorin, and Kendyl discuss Dark Phoenix (2019)—the character arcs, the dialogue, and the girl power—and how it all comes together.
The Adaptation hosts discuss how the X-Men cinematic world has developed in X-Men:Apocolypse (2016) and then get into a very serious discussion about McKellen!Magneto versus Fassbender!Magneto.
Question of the Week: What theories do you have about the end credits scene and what it’s hinting at for the future of the series?
The Adaptation hosts were not too happy with Fantastic Four (2015). This probably doesn’t surprise you. Bad balance and pacing, no character development, and awkward moments consisting of “Hey! I noticed you look different than your familial relations! What’s that about?” all led to a movie they were really upset they spent money on.
… but then they didn’t. In the new installment in the X-Men series, Sentinels created by Trask Industries have decimated mankind. In order to prevent this future, Wolverine travels back to the 70s to stop the event that set these events in motion. Our hosts come together to try to figure out the intricacies of this new time-line, what it means for the future and how thankful they are for the fixed mistakes.
