    I think this further adds fuel to the rumor that an Avengers vs X-Men film will be released in 2020 and will also be announced at this years Comic-Con.

    Being that Bryan Singer hinted about seeing some of the "Phoenix" in Jean in Apocalypse and rumors spinning of the next X-Men film in that timeline being about the Phoenix, I really don't know how Fox and Disney will work an Avengers vs X-Men movie because there is no way X-Men is getting rebooted.

    I wish Fox would dump Bryan Singer. It's been almost 20 years and while a movie or two has been okay to pretty good, they've completely failed to mine one of comics richest character playgrounds for anything substantial.

    Yeah, I have just about no antipition for Apocalypse. Would be way more interested in a reboot of the franchise.

    Movies with Bryan Singer involved

    X-Men - Bryan Singer (director & writer)
    RT scores - 81% by critics 83% by audience

    X2: X-Men United - Bryan Singer (director & writer)
    RT scores - 86% by critics 85% by audience

    X-Men: First Class - Bryan Singer (producer)
    RT scores - 87% by critics 87% by audience

    X-Men: Days of Future Past - Bryan Singer (director & writer)
    RT scores - 91% by critics 92% by audience

    We'll see how Apocalypse does in May

    Now, core X-Men films without Singer involved (no Deadpool)

    X-Men: The Last Stand
    RT scores - 58% by critics 62% by audience

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine
    RT scores - 38% by critics 59% by audience

    If anyone can tell me a good reason that Fox would want to get rid of Singer then please inform me of it. IMO, the only thing I would like to see more are some costumes that are not just black. I would be more nervous of Disney getting X-Men than if they were to continue under Fox and under Singer's supervision.

    i'm too sensitive for this shit Prestigious

    I think Deadpool, DOFP, and First Class were all good, but I didn't love any of them. The only X-Men film I love is X2, which was over a decade ago.

    They've used Wolverine a million times but never made a good solo film for him. They have great women like Storm (a WOC!) and Kitty Pryde that are utilized terribly. The wasted potential is so frustrating.

    I think Storm will be used greatly in Apocalypse and any future movie. The decision to make her a horsemen was strange but I feel like it will be for a reason that really adds a good punch to her character growth from the beginning to end. In the first 3 films, they has a whole ensemble to worry about (not to mention Wolverine). With the younger films, they seem to take on characters a movie at a time and it's easier to focus on them.

    for whatever reason the X Men movies have never interested me

    The first three and Wolverine never did interest me either. I honestly think it's because of the actors (Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, etc.) which is another reason I will be bummed out if they reboot it. I don't think they will find actors with the same charisma. Oscar Issac is bound to be good as Apocalypse.

    I just think the whole universe is getting stale and while I enjoyed DoFP, I'm interested in seeing someone else shake things up. X3 and Origins being atrocious doesn't make the other ones great, imo.

    How did 59% of audiences have favorable opinions of Origins? That's the only superhero movie I've hated

    If they can stretch how great his stuff was in Daredevil into a full series this could be incredible.

    If they use Garth Ennis' run on Punisher MAX as a blueprint for the series, I will be so happy.

    Straight from Marvel:

    This good deed goes unpunished!

    Netflix has ordered a full first season of “Marvel’s The Punisher,” continuing their unprecedented collaboration with Marvel Television.

    Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as Frank Castle, introduced to fans earlier this year in the second season of the Netflix original series “Marvel’s Daredevil,” with Steve Lightfoot (“Hannibal”) serving as Executive Producer and Showrunner in addition to writing the series’ first two episodes.

    “We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,'” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, “Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, we’re thrilled to bring 'Marvel’s The Punisher' to Netflix.”

    “Jon hooked our global audience with his performance as Frank Castle from the moment he stepped on screen in 'Marvel’s Daredevil,' and we are looking forward to seeing more of him in this role under the vision of Steve Lightfoot,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content.

    “For me, the complexity and unpredictability of Frank Castle make him an incredibly compelling character and I couldn’t be more excited to dive into his world,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Steve Lightfoot. “After watching Jon’s performance in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ I could not be more excited to be working with him to further develop and progress the story of this anti-hero in a show of his own.”

    “Marvel’s The Punisher” marks the sixth series ordered thus far as part of the groundbreaking collaboration between Marvel Television and Netflix including the upcoming “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” “Marvel’s The Defenders” and the Peabody Award-winning “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”

    “Marvel’s The Punisher” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
