There’s a war coming… are you sure you’re on the right side? With the impending release of X-Men: Apocalypse, we finally decided to revisit all five of the main X-Men films from their big screen debut in 2000 through to Bryan Singer’s triumphant return to the franchise 14 years later with X-Men: Days of Future Past. We discuss the state of comic book movies in the late ’90s, the social and political undertones of the series, timeline inconsistencies, the changing fashion trends and even the Hollywood scandal that Bryan Singer was allegedly involved in. So is X-Men: First Class a soft reboot or a prequel? Is the young X-Men cast an improvement on the originals? Is X-Men: The Last Stand really as bad as everyone says it is and, if so, is Brett Ratner to blame? Strap on Cerebro and read our minds with this month’s premium podcast below.
