Images that give us our first look at some product for the upcoming 20th Century Fox X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie have popped up online via the international movie theater chain Cinepolis. The product shown looks to be drink cup toppers that movie theaters will likely offer at their concession stands when the movie is released in February 2019. The products give us looks at Cyclops, Jean Grey and Beast in what I guess will be their new generic X-Men outfits they wear. There is also one for what looks to be an update Blackbird.

I want to be excited for this movie, but after the Apocalypse letdown, I have concerns. Apocalypse film was a missed opportunity, I feel like DoFP brought the franchise back from the damage done by the Last Stand. At least the Deadpool movies are still on track.

Humm so are they going for like X-Factor costumes now? Anyway...like GoiBill said, I also want to be excited, but I am on the fence. X-Men are my favorite marvel characters of all time. I watched the cartoons (all of them, even the bad ones) read all the comics until the beginning of 2003, but my life changed and I dropped comics all together, unfortunately. Now it's complicated to get back and I'm not sure about the marvel storytelling anymore.

But back to the movies, despite the good and the bad I feel like they never been treated right. If the Fox/Disney  deal really goes through, I really hope that they have all that they deserve. 

To me the best stories are in the 90's and I want to see them in the silverscreen, but done properly.

Apocalypse definitely set a visual tone for these new X-Men, but I understand, based on its reaction, the filmmakers' sense to move away from same. I so wish Disney and Fox could get the deal done, so that I might see my Fassbender Magneto in plastic someday!

While these outfit looks good, I dont understand why they arent using the outfits they usd at the very end of X-Men Apocalypse as those outfits were great. I think thos eoutfits were amazing and I really hope that they make the figures of them someday or something.

I am hopeful these generic outfits are something we only see in a portion of the movie and those outfits are what they primarily use.

I hope that they are only in a portion of the movie. They remind me of the outfits for First Class. By this point in the chronology, the Xavier Institute should be able to afford costumes that have a little more style, form, and function.

I hope it'll do well. I know there's a lot of mixed feelings about the Fox-Men movies but I'm still hopeful that maybe this one will be a good story. Hopefully they learned from X-3 and they do the story a bit more justice, especially if this is to be the last Fox produced X-Men film, better to go out on a high note or as high as they can get anyway.

I was wondering if this movie was still happening after the rumored purchasing of the X-Men rights by Disney. Excited to see what Marvel does for their second go around! And this coming from someone who DIDN'T hate X-Men: The Last Stand!

I sure hope so man because those outfits look amazing. Having both outfits in the movie would be a plus.

I heard that fox has taken X-Men Dark Phoenix off of their website and some peopel are wondering if it has been scrapped or going to have a new release date. I think it was taken down due to the Marvel characters going back Marvel/Disney and Marvel/Disney told them to take the movie down or I could be wrong. But I figured this was important enough to bring here to see what everyone thinks or if anyone has more info on this.

I'm actually digging the new uniforms, as represented by these toppers... Though, I've heard next to nothing about this movie, sadly. But, I've enjoyed pretty much all of the 'First Class' era X-Movies, to varying degrees; So I'm kind of excited to check this one out.

I have always loved Cyclops, and the biggest letdown, for me, in the Fox movies is that Cyclops was only the leader of the team in the first film. While I do like Wolverine, there is no reason that Cyclops couldn't have stayed as important as he is supposed to be, and that they could focus on Logan. It is just frustrating, to me, that they refuse to use Scott the way he should be used. That is why I am really excited for the X-Men to join the MCU. I have high hopes they will do it right. Also, we would start getting some real kick ass action figures out of it. I hope Dark Pheonix is a good movie, but I won't hold my breath.

Well hopefully with the release of DP2 they'll have learned not to care too much and take more risks.

The outfits are pretty much what I'd expect from an X-Men movie at this point, I just hope they can deliver because the last time they tried anything with the phoenix.. :wacko:

    • Good to see you back in the game Cobra. Nothin' like a good ole SDCC to bring the gang back together, right. Ya, me and Rukk put our differences aside & realized we have a greater cause to fight: The prevention of the TAKOVER of one of the best American toy lines in history by changing everone's favorite comic action figures to ACTOR FIGURES. Again, I like figures based on movies as much as any comic fan, buuuuut we are a long way from one Tom Jane Punisher or Ben Affeck DD mixed in every once in a while to the unrivaled HORRAAAH that was the Black Panther wave(s) and Infinity War waves. What's happening to our ML? All levity aside (sorry Tarot), I personally think it's a mixture the whole 10 year anniversary thing and the end of the modern Avengers movie arch as we know it. As we all know, the actors are starting to get up there in age & tho it seems RDJ is okay to be Tony Stark in every damn movie for the rest of his life, most of the other actors (specifically the Chris's) are ready to throw in the towel. So with the future uncertain at this point, I think this is Hasbro & Marvel's last hooorah to milk as much Hollywood based merch out of the line as possible. Now, much like the BP movie, the Cap Marvel movie is starting to look a lot more appealing than it previously had, but the sad truth is this Cap simply does not have the chops to carry the next phase, no matter how much Marvel wants her to. Marvel Stdios does get it wrong every once in a while (Inhumans anyone?) And this will be one of those times. This is where the reacquisition of the Fox properties come in to play. Thank you God, for X-Men & F4, returning home. Captain Marvel & Spider-Man will bridge the gap just long enough for those "Unnamed Projects" to be turned to new reboots of both franchises. And baby I'm sooooo excited to see what Marvel Studios does with these guys. I expect their versions of Apocalypse and Doctor Doom to wipe the terrible taste of the last one out of our moth completely. As for what this will mean for the toy lines, we'll I expect that the be one part awesome and two part nefarious. First off I think this will free the Avengers based waves from movie figure hell. Meaning since Cap, IM & the Avengers still remain a major part of the Marvel brand, ML should still have waves based on them without the need for further actor figures & we start to get a lot of those comic figures we've so desperately been pining for, and maybe we will get all the comic versions of the newly restored Avengers that we most definitely need. How many of these waves a year they could squeeze in per year remains to be seen, though one comic Avengers wave & one each IM & Cap wave per year does not seem outta the question, similar to the one X-Men & 2 Deadpool we recieved this year. The Avengers & Captain America waves of the future could be what the X-Men & Deadpool waves are currently: pure comic figure nirvana. Basically, I see the Avengers & X-Men changing roles, tho it does give one pause that the Iron Man movie arch has been over for 5 years & we still haven't had a comic based wave yet, but maybe that has something to do with the actors movie contracts. Yes, that means the X-Men & F4 waves will all eventually be over run with MCU figures one day & though it will be bliss for MCU collectors who would love nothing more than to have all the repetetive actor figures their little hearts desire, us Comic figure fans will suffer for any crumbs they will throw at us. The bright side of that is it looks like the creative team is doing everything in its limited power to try & get us as many Comic based X-figures as possible before that happens. We've already gotten damn near perfect versions of the F4 and I'm almost certain a new Doctor Doom & Kang will follow the Super Skull sometime in the near future. So I'm keeping a positive outlook. This would be a subject I would like to touch apon at this year's SDCC, but alas, I fear this is something that's a few years off and though it would make perfect sense (in a sensible world) the suits at both Hasbro & Disney are as unpredictable as a Walking Dead season premiere. On other fronts, I think the 4 & 12 inch lines are toast. Initially I did not like the 4" line but as they got better I grew to like them & even tracked down all the older figs I missed. Best part about them: NO FREAKIN' MOVIE FIGURES! Ultmately, with the resources and focus on the reignition of the ML line the distribution & quality & articulation of the 4" line suffered & I don't foresee a full return to glory other than exclusives or special products similar to the Gamestop Rainbowpool set. Sad story. I really liked the assortments and the fact that they dared to let the worlds of the Avengers & X-Men intermingle. As far as the 12" I just think it never caught on. I think it was too much too fast. As much care as they put into detail, they ignored as much in scale. Deadpool was the same size as Spidey as Daredevil and some of the head sculpts were way too big. The only ones I ever bought were on clearance and from what I saw they all eventually ended up in clearance. Honestly, to be rid of them would take some burden off my wallet. As good and as large some of them were, that price point was a hell of a stretch for me.
