Even if it's true, it would just be another reason not to go to the movies (I haven't been to a movie theater since 2015) or even watch these films.

I guess I didn’t read into not wanting to use ‘X-Men’ as a title as some kind of pro-diversity statement against the use of the word MEN. This article and any fan-reaction to its non-use is some s***-stirring. Srsly sick of culture wars. Do not eat that s***, mes copains.


Our mutants don’t even personally ID as human. It is outdated in that sense.


I could see the opening of a new x-franchise being finding a strange school in ruins, wondering what the hell happened here, and seeing mutants individually as persecuted minorities coming together to build their own thang.


I’m not really invested in a live action anyway, unless it’s a series on Disney+. A movie style for X-men I’d prefer as the Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, which isn’t just my favorite Marvel movie but my favorite movie ever.

I give you... "The Mutants". Wow what an exciting title. :buck2:  I can't believe they are going to do this to me. I'm so bummed that these movies are probably going to be awful. I mean they already ruined the idea of mutants in the finale of the Ms. Marvel show by making Kamala Kahn the first mutant in the mcu. It's unbelievable.

Don’t have a problem with MsMarvel being a mutant. But why take us on this weird ride to get there in the last five seconds? Is she inhuman? A Dijin? Magic bangle? Oh, also a mutant? Like this was your chance to simplify her story, not make it more complicated. Pick a lane! otherwise I liked it, but more for the coming-of-age/family drama story than anything.


I guess The Mutants is consistent with a group of people, like The Inhumans, The Eternals, rather than a team. The X-men team must not exist, we’re not just going to jump right in, but maybe build it up like the Avengers and Defenders?

That is true, but dose really want to associate them with Inhumans, Eternals, the MCU’s only two flops?
