But I don't know why Jean is going to Magneto for answers, other than that Michael Fassbender still has a contractual obligation to be in the movie.
And he has the best line in the whole trailer.

But yeah, this probably would have been a much better idea to revisit once (if?) the X-Men are fully integrated into the MCU. Then you could have the cosmic aspect and it would give a better sense of the power of the Phoenix Force. I'd be willing to bet Disney/Fox/Marvel (sheesh) is probably going to reboot everything X-Men after Dark Phoenix, though. Unless they write something weird into Avengers 4 ("Hey look, not only is everyone alive again but now we've got all these mutants!") the X-Men don't fit in the MCU's timeline.

Other than the Mute Bee, I wonder if this is the start of the reboot of the franchise. We know the movies are getting some kind of reboot after Bumblebee, but seeing flashbacks with G1 characters and aesthetics makes me think they're kinda piggybacking some of the new ideas on there.
If the Transformers looked like that in the first movie, I may have seen a Transformers movie by now. The aesthetics of the movies were so ugly I was turned off even before I heard how bad the writing was.

Disney's live-action Aladdin teaser trailer.



I've only seen two of their live-action remakes. Maleficent didn't work for me, with its ret-conning arguably the most evil Disney villain as a sympathetic victim. But The Jungle Book was amazing. I'm optimistic for this one. I'm not even going to bad-mouth the choice of Will Smith as the Genie.

I am, as always, profoundly "Meh" on all things Disney.

I dunno. Not a great trailer, that's for certain. And starting with the cheesy "Weeping in the rain" shot doesn't do it any favors. The movie might be good, but that trailer isn't doing it any favors.

... or the movie might be another X-3. It does list the same writer, so ... it might suck.

I'm not sure why they need to retell his origin, but I guess if they can do it with Batman and Spider-Man every couple years, they can with Hellboy.

Hopefully it will be less than 5 minutes before the credits just to remind everyone and then move on.

I'm honestly not sure how I feel about a Hellboy movie without Ron Perlman.

And after I watched the Dark Phoenix trailer the first time I ventured into the youtube comments section (because I like to live dangerously) and so many people seemed so excited and hyped up for it, I had to go back and check the trailer again in case I had accidentally watched a short movie about a pile of shit instead. I am in no way hyped for Dark Phoenix because to me it just looked like overacted, cliched garbage.
Until next time, this Has-Been's

The teaser trailer for Joker came out today. Looks like a dramatic character study, and Joaquin Phoenix is nailing the physicality of the Joker.

I absolutely understand the complain that the DCEU is too dark as it is, but I'm all the way in on this Joker movie if only because the type of movie it is seems very different than other superhero movies. I like the standard superhero formula as much as the next person, but I have wanted comic book movies to branch out into other genres for a while now. I have no idea if this is going to be good, but at the very least I want to reward them for trying something new.

At least it's not Jared Leto.
