X-Men: Dark Phoenix may have been delayed, but like New Mutants, it is still on the way in 2019.
Collider recently spoke with Evan Peters, who played Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Futures Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, and will appear in the upcoming Dark Phoenix. Bringing up Logan and Deadpool as R-rated movies, and New Mutants being a horror film, Collider asked Peters how Dark Phoenix fits in with all that jazz, tonally:
“I think it’s the classic X-Men: First Class tone, where there’s a bit of humor thrown in there, but it’s much darker than the previous one, Apocalypse. Apocalypse was the ‘80s, so there was a lot of room for goofy stuff in there. This one is a much more serious film about the internal struggle of Phoenix and Jean, so it’s a dramatic film. There’s nothing very comedic about it, other than the few moments that are in there. I think it’s gonna be a powerful one. It’s Dark Phoenix. I think it’s gonna be darker than we’re used to. It’s gonna be a change, but it’s gonna be fun for everybody.”
There you go. Darker means better, right?
I’m over the typical X-Men films, but are you eagerly looking forward to Dark Phoenix? Man, those characters haven’t aged in 50 years…
