Not that I expect this - quite likely the last Fox X-Men movie** before they're rebooted into the MCU - to be any good but to be fair towards the production EVERY big budget blockbuster has reshoots. Usually to add in character moments or small action beats here and there. It's very common. Dark Phoenix
, to date, has been a very common production. It's written into contracts that actors need to be available for reshoots if required. Someone somewhere just started a "they're reshooting the entire movie" rumor for attention and the internet did what it does best - take an unsubstantiated rumor and spread it around so much it becomes an alternative fact.
Mind you, I don't expect the film to be good - all the X-Men movies aside from The Wolverine
, First Class
are merely "okay" - but a rumor started by a bunch of DC or MCU fanboys who have this weird animosity towards live action cartoons not made by their company. http://collider.com/x-men-dark-phoenix- ... explained/
Anywho, movie looks "okay". I'm curious to see what Jessica Chastain will do and this one should have a real sense of finality since this will be the end for the Fox X-Men. I, of course, also find it absolutely hilarious that this movie takes place in the 1990s
& that Professor X & Magneto haven't aged a day
since First Class
which was set during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962
! Age will catch up with when they both age from supremely fit Michael Fassbender & James McAvoy into Ian McKellan & Patrick Stewart a decade later circa 2000.
High point: Michael Fassbender delivering the line "You're always sorry Charles" is pure gold. He continues to be the one truly excellent element best in these films.
**One could argue The Dark Mutants
is the last Fox X-Men movie but no one has an idea what's going on with that film. Now THAT movie is having post production woes with multiple reshoot sessions, new CG characters added in post, delays of over a year & a half, etc. Honestly, I'm still expecting the film to become a Disney Streaming title in the near future.
