    Simon Kinberg in Talks to Write and Direct X-MEN: SUPERNOVA


    [​IMG]

    The next X-Men movie – supposedly titled X-Men: Supernova - might start filming this June and would focus on the Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix storyline, which is a comics arc that fans have been dying to see since Bryan Singer teased it at the end of X2. It basically involves Jean Grey succumbing to her powers and transforming into Dark Phoenix, a malevolent force that brings about Grey’s downfall.

    Sophie Turner, who was introduced as the young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, was on a red carpet when she revealed she was “about to start shooting the next X-Men movie,” but with both New Mutants and this Supernova film rumored to be in development, it was unclear what film she was talking about.

    After talking to multiple sources, Collider reports that writer/producer Simon Kinberg is looking to make his directorial debut with the next X-Men movie and he’s already written the screenplay. From what the site hear,s it does focus on the Dark Phoenix storyline and it’s now up to the studio if they’ll use his script and if he’ll get to direct it.

    If for some reason you’re not familiar with Simon Kinberg and his relationship to the X-Men franchise, he’s essentially the Kevin Feige of the X-Men universe at 20th Century Fox. If you look over his IMDb resume, you’ll see he’s either written, produced, or been heavily involved with X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, Logan, Legion, and New Mutants.

    Was it? I heard it was and when I watched it I enjoyed it. It wasn't much worse then First Class and much better then Last Stand.

    Apocalypse has always been a stupidly ambiguous character and the movie made his powers, motivations and character consistent.

    "The" quicksilver scene was fun too.

    I don't like that word "Supernova" sound like something hippies would say.

    I have zero faith in Fox being able to pull off the Dark Phoenix Saga. Hell, they already whiffed on it once.

    So this shitbag whiffed on Dark Phoenix the first go around and now he's looking for redemption? Fuck this peterpuffer sideways with a gorilla cock. That ship done sailed, asswipe.

    The only fucking names I want to see associated with a Dark Phoenix movie are motherfucking Chris Claremont and goddamn John Byrne.

    "teased it at the end of X2." So we're still going with not acknowledging the existence of you-know-what? ;)

    While Kinberg has extensive experience as writer and producer (some good movies, some abysmal) i'm interested on what he can do as a director.

    They should reboot this franchise from the ground up.
    1. Get rid of Singer. Make it look like an accident if you have to.
    2. Recast everybody, including Mac & Fass, but definitely Sophie.
    3. Do a proper Phoenix Saga trilogy.

    the problem with apocalypse was his ending, and how he was shorter than a couple of his horsemen.

    he lost a step without the ability to vary his size. which may have only been in the cartoon, but it was cool.

    Not just in the cartoon.

    Apocalypse's full extent of powers remain to be revealed, especially to the extent of which powers have since been augmented by alien technology. Apocalypse claims to have control of his body on the molecular level and structure-- allowing him to shape change and elongate with virtually unlimited range, to increase density and allow his body to mimic metals and armors, to teleport, and to be virtually immune to the effects of age. Apocalypse can also increase and enhance his strength to levels surpassing that of the Incredible Hulk. Apocalypse can grow to giant sizes, and gain the power of flight, sometimes through turning his arms into wings or jets. Apocalypse can also transform himself into a variety of human disguises.He has exhibited energy absorbing and projecting abilities in the past. Apocalypse has been termed an "External," due to his mutant ability of immortality. Briefly, Apocalypse has shown potential to be a powerful psionic.It has further been hinted that Apocalypse's body is ravaged by a techno-organic disease. Many of his regenerated bodies must use an exoskeleton body armor to prevent his energies from consuming him. Apocalypse can apparently merge/switch host bodies to continually revive his self-consuming body.
