X-Men: Can The Future Save The Past?

X-Men: Can The Future Save The Past?

     If there is anything that the X-Men franchise is known for, it’s one, the iconic characters displayed on the screen, and two, the horrible timeline provided. I mean, come on. How do you expect to build up an audience when your story’s timeline is bombarded with nonsense? If only something could be done to tame the issue. Luckily, something is being done about it. About one week ago, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and icon Hugh Jackman dropped the new teaser trailer for Deadpool and Wolverine at 2024’s Super Bowl. So is it possible? Can this new movie actually be groundbreaking to the X-Men Saga and possibly save it from being the mess that it is? Well, actually, there’s a high chance that it can. Before going into the deep depths of reason as to why the new Deapool movie can save the XMen universe, first let’s see why fans slowly started to lose interest. 

     The start off, the X-Men cinematic Universe all begins with X-Men (2000). This is where we see all of the legendary X-Men, such as Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Wolverine, and Charles Xavier meet for the first time. This movie revolves around the fact that the antagonist, Magnito, wants the whole world to become mutants. Maginto, who controls metal, does not like the discrimination towards mutants, he believes that they are the future and that regular humans could never compare. Charles Xavier and the X-Men fight to stop Magnito as they fear that he will only create a bigger issue to the “mutant V. human problem.”

     Once X-Men hit the big screen, thousands of people were wanting nothing more than a sequel. Sure enough, they got it. As a matter of fact, the world gained an extra 11 movies. However, as the movies went on, the story telling, CGI, and timelines got worse. Some movies weren’t connecting, and others just seemed unnecessary. As much as seeing Wolverine in an epic fighting sequence can be fantastic, it doesn’t help the main issue of the X-Men universe. That was until the first Deadpool movie came out in 2016. 

     Deadpool was a revolutionary movie in the X-Men franchise, since the fourth wall breaker Wade Wilson would often bring out the flaws created during X-Men. After becoming a world cinematic hit, Deadpool 2 came to rise. Both films have paved a way to save the world of X-Men, as well as bring back our beloved Wolverine. On February 11, 2024, the first look at Deadpool and Wolverine was seen, and fans are in awe. It’s said all around that this movie will bring both X-Men and the MCU back on its feet. And by the looks of it, that might just be 100% the outcome in this case.
