Back in 2000, what is now the modern superhero genre didn’t seem possible. “Blade,” about a half-vampire Marvel Comics anti-hero, was the closest audiences had at the time. That changed with “X-Men,” which introduced a franchise that came to a disappointing conclusion over the weekend.
“Dark Phoenix” opened in the US with $33 million, the lowest opening in the franchise, signaling that audiences might be over Fox’s mutant superheros — until Disney and Marvel introduce them into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is. With Disney’s acquisition of Fox this year, “Dark Phoenix” is the final Fox X-Men movie, and the franchise’s future is in Disney’s hands.
But even though it’s suffered from a confusing timeline and less-than-impressive entries in recent years, the X-Men series may be the original superhero “cinematic universe,” before the MCU came to be.
