Fox\u2019s main X-franchise fizzled out with the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and it was said that the movie underwent massive reshoots because it was too similar to Captain Marvel. As it turns out, the movie could have been way more in common with CM, seeing that it was supposed to include Skrulls as well.\r\n\r\nThis was confirmed by Cyclops actor Tye Sheridan, who told the ReelBlend podcast, \u201cThere is this huge battle between the guards at the U.N. and Jean Grey\u2026 All the guards turn out to be Skrulls.\u201d\r\n\r\nAn inclusion of the Skrulls would have made perfect sense for Dark Phoenix. After all, they are part of Fox\u2019s Fantastic Four property, and they\u2019re also shapeshifting aliens who blend in with humans. I have a feeling if the movie came out earlier like it was meant to, then it would have been able to avoid the comparisons with Captain Marvel. I guess we have Alita: Battle Angel to blame for that since James Cameron wanted that February release, pushing DP back.\r\n\r\nThere are still more comparisons to Captain Marvel. The entire train sequence was a result of reshoots since the original ending would have had the Skrulls arriving, and Jean would have went full Phoenix to blast all of the ships\u2014pretty much like how Carol Danvers went full super saiyan and decimated all of the Kree ships.\r\n\r\nIf anything, the X-franchise is closed now, and we\u2019ll have to wait a long time before we can see Marvel reboot the property. Too bad for DP\u2019s Skrulls though because I think Captain Marvel co-creator Roy Thomas would have loved them being portrayed as evil. He\u2019s publicly said he didn\u2019t like how they were handled by the MCU since it made them \u201cgood guys.\u201d Hopefully down the line we could get the ruthless alien race that gave us Secret Invasion.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=azvR__GRQic\r\n\r\nFor now, catch X-Men: Dark Phoenix currently in theaters.
