Are there two Cyclopses on that poster?

I'll be going into this one with extremely low expectations after Apocalypse. At least I can look forward to Disney hopefully rebooting it and casting/setting it up right.
The guy in the lower right is Quicksilver.

Having seen the new trailer I genuinely think that Sophie Turner might be one of the best things about this movie. It looks a lot like Fassbender, McAvoy and Lawrence are all phoning in their performances based on what the trailers show... I dunno. I just seriously still believe that Dark Phoenix would work better as an episodic serial than a done in one movie

In my view, the administrators of UXM.net have stronger standing to declare “X-Men Day” than the people at Fox.

Dean Clayton, Peter Luzifer and others have been managing this site longer than Chris Claremont wrote Uncanny. Nobody has a longer tenure with the X-Men than they do. Certainly, nobody at Fox, Disney or Marvel Studios.

Fox has to declare an X-Men Day for people to notice.

Everyday is X-Men Day here at UXN!

Is Luzifer “retired”? I never know who’s working behind the scenes.

What’s particularly amazing about UXN.net is how high quality it is. Even though it’s 100% fan-created content, and volunteer driven, most of it is top notch quality. Here and there there’s prose that’s 6/10, but a lot of the prose is 8, 9, 10/10. And of course the site design, organization, management, images, concept and sheer comprehensiveness are louder than Spinal Tap.

And all by a handful of volunteers. The only website I know of with comparable quality made by volunteers is Wikipedia, and they have tens or hundreds of thousands of volunteers. UXN has had maybe two dozen, total. Remarkable.

Marvel Chronology Project has a remarkable scope too, but the interface still feels like 1998. Marvel Wiki is garbage. Occasionally it has a bit of info I can’t find elsewhere, but it’s full of terribly written and incomplete content. Frankly, UXN is better than Marvel’s commercial site, which is just an advert for buying comics.

I have never seen anything on the internet like this. It’s quite amazing.

Which is why I smirk when the rare letter pages include the writer/editor telling folks to check out UNX instead of Marvel's official site for backstory help.

Soooo are we going to bring it back on topic and say that Fox should have consulted UNX? Because I'm pretty sure we would have been saved from Origins: Wolverine.

The Marvel wiki itself is trash, but I've appreciated the Marvel Fandom Wiki. On one hand, I'd love for UXN to get some real official recognition, but I feel like they'd end up having to have some compliance with Marvel/Disney standards that would take away from the site.

I see trailers for this movie and I want to be excited for them, but it's just not happening. I'll probably spend my $4 to see it, but if I don't I won't be missing anything. I still haven't really SEEN Apocalypse. It played while I was in the room, but I dozed through most of the movie and I have no idea how it ended.
