Last week, My Entertainment World started a rumor that the next X-Men movie would be X-Men: Supernova, it would start filming in June in Montreal, and it would be a movie based on the Dark Phoenix Saga. I doubted this at first, but Sophie Turner added a bit of truth to the statement.
HeyUGuys interviewed Sophie Turner and when they asked what projects she had coming up, this is what she said:
“We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men, we’ve just finished shooting Season 7 of [Game of] Thrones, and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts. And then we go on to Season 8.”
I expected that Sophie Turner would be back after the end of X-Men Apocalypse and how they hinted at the Phoenix Saga. So, this really isn’t a surprise. I also find it interesting that we have 6 release dates for X-Men movies starting in 2018, and we don’t know what they all are. Usually these studios release five year slates, but that’s not the case with Fox.
It could definitely still happen, probably after Logan, but I think it would be interesting if they just didn’t really make a slate at all. It would be interesting if we found out as we went along instead of having all these movies in mind years in advance.
I got a little off track there! That’s been something on my mind. Whether the movie is Supernova or not, it certainly could be at this point. The chance is a little higher. But, overall, Sophie Turner’s casting isn’t much of a surprise, I just want a really good X-Men movie again.
