Dark Phoenix ̵
Long-time X-Men Author-producer and Dark Phoenix Director Simon Kinberg has shared his thoughts about the film's failure and declares:
"It's clearly a movie, that it did not connect with an audience that did not see it, it did not agree enough with the audience that saw it. So that's up to me. I loved making the movie, and I loved the people I made the movie with. I love these characters. I love this world. I will be very curious what Marvel is doing with them.

This is it The story of Jean Gray, one of the most popular figures of the X-Men, as she develops into the legendary DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that turns her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Jean wrestles with this increasingly unstable power and their own personal demons and gets out of control, breaking up the X-Men family and threatening to destroy the fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men films when the family of mutants we know and love have faced their hitherto most devastating enemy – their own.
