He believes that the X-Men developed the superhero in 2000. It is during this period that Marvel Studios released the first X-Men film.by then, superhero films were not as famous as they are currently. Some of them were released in the 1990s but they did not sell up to 2000. X-Men revolutionized the movie industry.


Although X-Men has been in production for 20 years, it’s still a favorite for many people. Kinberg thinks it is time for it to change its feel, look, and tone to attract young audiences. However, it is not compulsory for upcoming directors to Follow Dark Phoenix’s tone. Instead, they can create a different tone to record higher sales.

Although McAvoy loves playing Xavier, He said that it is essential for an actor to write an interesting script to avoid repeating a specific scene several times. In a recent MTV News interview, he revealed that it is vital for someone else to replace him in X-Men.

The Future
