X-Men: Apocalypse is not a very good movie, but it is an extremely comic book-y movie, which is to say that it feels very much like a one-to-one translation of your typical X-Men comic. Rather than focusing on making audiences really care about the characters, Apocalypse prioritizes action and visual spectacle.
James Franco has been a part of so many projects, it may seem like he’s got a clone. And now, that could actually happen—in a movie at least.

Logan truly feels like the end of an era for the X-Men movies. Not just because Hugh Jackman is leaving the character behind, but because it comes at a time when the franchise itself feels up in the air. X-Men: Apocalypse disappointed, Deadpool wowed, and TV entry Legion is surprising. Who knows what’s next?
Talk of a sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse has been rampant as of late. There have been rumors of titles, shooting dates, actors returning, and more. But one thing there hasn’t been is an answer to the question of who might write and direct the expected X-sequel. Now that name may finally be revealed.

Everything that’s good, and bad, about X-Men: Apocalypse can be traced to it being part of the successful X-Men franchise. It’s not only the third film in the series (in the new movie continuity), but also the sixth (overall), and also the ninth (if you count solo movies) which creates certain…
