Any Dark Phoenix movie will fail if you don’t:
1. Develop the Cyclops/Jean Grey relationship so that people actually care about them;
2. Have a strong and charismatic lead actress playing Jean so viewers will enjoy watching her(and Cyclops as well, though Marsden was ok in the 1st X-men film).

None of the X-men movies came close to the above, so the key attraction to the story didn’t resonate. It’s like they couldn’t be bothered to lay the foundation before telling the story.

Yeah, I'm sort of feeling like 'Oh Jean is getting more than a cameo in this new movie. Remember her?'

While only a few reviews in, the final X-men movie by Fox (though I suppose New Mutants is coming out eventually), Dark Phoenix, is getting pummelled by critics:
- Oak


New Mutants got pushed to April 3, 2020 from it's most recent push date of August 2019. Apparently that one was Disney's doing, but not clear as to why. Also interesting given Marvel has a movie, yet to be announced, release scheduled for May 1, 2020.

I think it was delayed because they haven't done their reshoots yet, which is shocking:

I knew it was gonna be bad when they announced it but I’m still gonna see it. Heck, it can’t be worse than Apocalypse!
