"I don't know where the future is going," Alonso told Nuke the Fridge. "Its funny that people call it the X-Men... there's a lot of female superheroes in that X-Men group; I think it's outdated."

While only a snippet, it just shows, again how people think. “Men” is in the term Women and is obviously used in other terms like mankind etc. and of all of the comic teams, X-Men has always had a quite large representation of Women.

Also bonus double cringe: IGN and a terrible clip. Skip to about 2:10ish for the goods.


So yeah.

X-Women!

If we're all honest with ourselfs, all the X-Men films (excluding Logan) have been mediorce at best, yes even X-Men 1 2 and 3.

The new(ish) X-Men films with James McAvoy et al are really not good, Apocalypse was the worst and Dark Phoenix looks meh at best.

I think X-Men can survive and thrive in the hands of good film makers in this genre.....Disney

Woke it till you Broke it I guess.

We should set up a bureaucracy to tell us all the trigger words and have them replace them. We need protection from the evils of words like X-Men or Owner.

I think X2 was legit good, but otherwise I completely agree with you.

I think if you found a superhero team, you get to name it whatever you want.
I am naming my superhero team the X-Cunths

Who's in?

Or, you know, I actually think X-men 1 is decent, X-men 2 is great, First Class is great, The Wolverine is pretty good, and Days of Future Past is excellent. WTF is this "be honest with yourself" bullshit. Oh yes, I've been lying to myself about a bunch of movies, some of them for over a decade, because apparently I'm a masochist who enjoys re-watching movies I don't actually like. Seriously, are people incapable of expressing their own opinion (about fucking movies of all things) without adding that basically everyone's opinion must also match theirs?

Also the fact that you include X-men 3 as a "yes, even that one" is perplexing as most fans disliked that movie. Kelsey Grammar is Beast is excellent, honestly probably in my top 10 best superhero casting choices, but he's the sole gem in a pile of shit.

So this is how Marvel executives see the x-men franchise, a month before they reboot the comicbook line again, and apparently wipe out the history of the past books.

God, go fuck yourself marvel....

I’m pretty sure nobody with a normal brain looks at “X-Men” and thinks “Gee that sure is sexist!”

Only mental midgets and leftist freaks think like this. X-Men is just X-Men, and when I think of X-Men I think of superhero mutants whether they be Wolverine,Gambit,Rogue, or Storm...Gender doesn’t cross my mind... nor does their sexual preference.....

But then again like I said — I’m not a leftist freak or blue haired lesbian feminist that PROJECTS my weird sexual and gender fantasies onto everything.

These retards really can't understand that in some contexts "Men" can collectively refer to both men and women?

It's just how the English language works.
No, they get it. It just means she's a feminist with a huge chip on her shoulder about how oppressed she is, while in a top management position on the biggest film franchise in history.

I don't know who this woman is, she seems to be an executive producer so probably has barely anything to do with any of the films.
I'm fine if they call the films X-Force, X-Factor, X-Statix, New Mutants or any other names they have been called in the comics.

Probably better to distance themselves from the X-Men branding after Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix anyway.

during the mid 90's PC push i remember having a conversation with someone that they arent mailwomen, firewomen, policewomen, much less <thing>person. The job title is mailman, fireman, policeman, etc. You can have a female policeman, a female actor is still an actor. ~25 years later, still feel this way. It would be so nice to move beyond words and pay attention to intent of what people say.

The book was always called "X-Men", yes? It gained it's popularity and acclaim with that name also? People look fondly at the old stories written thirty or so years back with fondness? Those books inspired the writers of today, I assume? So, the idea is that it's now "outdated" and needs to be completely ripped to the foundation and built back up as something wholly different? Does that make it a new thing or an old thing, I wonder?

The modern feminist doesn't operate on context. They simply see the word "man" and begin to seethe.

Really though, I do wonder what their plan is for other languages (like Spanish) where the masculine form of words almost always takes precedence over feminine.

Logan is good, the rest is trash. They should adapt the 90s cartoon. That's the X-Men everybody knows and loves.

Well now we now we know how the MCU is going to handle this IP.
That's been obvious since Homecoming and CM, Endgame, and FFH are just driving the point home. Anybody expecting classic 80s/90s X-Men should just put those hopes to bed now.

Sounds like they're making drama out of nothing. No one in their godamn minds think as X-men as a bunch of men.

Its a group with awesome super-hero mutants, both men and women. If you don't know that you probably don't watch or read.

That actually exists not a joke.

I would however laugh super hard when a new movie will push all the woman out and make a statement. Yes indeed woman didn't make much sense in this series.

For maximum trigger.

That's what a nazi would say.

They should call it something like X-Factor, or X-Force, or New Mutants, or Excalibur, or something cool like that. Those sound like much better names with real staying power, unlike X-Men.
