The company that owns the rights to the X-Men (Fox?) has to keep using their rights or they revert to Marvel. X-Men was the original X-Men movie which I think came out around the year 2000. It spawn one really good sequel, and a really bad sequel (plus some wolverine movies). After the dismal 3rd movie (in order to retain their rights) they decided to do prequel x-men movies with new casts (except for hugh jackman who appeared in them). Basically the last 3 x-men movies have been the prequel movies, with the 2nd one erasing the events of the X-Men 3.

The franchise is deteriorating in quality so I'm hoping they can still push through good content.
What? Logan was probably the best one of them all.

I didn't count the Wolverine spinoffs, I meant the main franchise that had the "X-Men" name.

They are 4 for 6 in terms of good to great movies. I personally enjoyed X-Men, X2, First Class and DOFP. The initial entries are good movies. The second entries of both trilogies are excellent and the third ones are bad.

To each their own. I didn't say the movies were bad just that I felt the quality was deteriorating so while I still watched and enjoyed each movie, I felt they weren't getting better compared to their predecessors.

So, umm... I take it Logan (2017) is a sequel and not a prequel right? I really don't know. I watched the first two X-Men movies. And I liked them. I was young then, I didn't watch any of the other ones.

Its kind of confusing. Logan is a sequel that supposedly is not part of the main universe of X-Men films. It's standalone.

Yeah, I consider Singer's movies as basically a reboot to the X-Men franchise (they reconciled it plot-wise via the time travel used in Days of Future Past), but as far as I'm concerned, there's no storyline relation to the first X-Men movies from the early 2000s other than the names of the characters. The "prequel" X-Men movies basically stopped being prequels and became a reboot once they time traveled and altered the past; this was Fox's way of being able to make new storylines with the "young" cast without people going "hey but so and so is supposed to be alive/dead in the first movies!"

In order of chronological, it goes...

First Class - 1960s
Days of Future Past - distant future, but time traveling to 1970s - Time travel in this movie basically changed the future so it's up in the air whether the events from the 2000s movie are relevant anymore
X-Men Apocalypse - 1980s

X-Men - 2000s
X2 - 2000s
X-Men Last Stand - mid-2000s

The Wolverine movies (X-Men Origins and The Wolverine) are meant to be set somewhere in between the 2000s X-Men movies.

Logan is set in the future so somewhere like 2020+ where everyone is either old or dead. This is more of an "alternate" future type of thing though.

I might've messed up the specifics but that's more or less the order.

There's debate whether Logan is in the new or old timeline since Managold said he wasn't concerned about continuity and wanted to make the best Wolverine movie a standalone as mentioned earlier in this thread. There certainly were things that linked it back to the original timeline specifically X-Men 3 and The Wolverine.

They took inspiration from Old Man Logan which as an alternate universe's future in the comics (until they brought Logan over to the main universe last year) so it's best to just think of Logan as something similar.

Olivia Munn calls Dark Phoenix a two parter.
http://collider.com/olivia-munn-intervi ... k-phoenix/
I don’t know what I’m supposed to say. I’m supposed to be vague. That’s my answer. I’m horrible at that. It’s like a two parter, this movie. That’s more than I’ve said, in general. I don’t know why people have to be so secretive.

I am a big fan of X-Men series. What about Hugh Jackman? Is he going to act in this movie? I love him. I think no one can replace him.
