X-Men series different timelines:
We have curated 2 timelines based on the setting and the story. If you feel like adding the Days of Future past in your binge list, then there are certain movies you should club together. The first timeline will be about how the X-Men discover a scientist Bolivar Trask is experimenting on mutants. Mystique tries to kill the military scientist but fails. And with the following decades, the robots sentinels are risking the existent of the mutants. Hence a few movies from above will not include these plots. So the timeline will consist of a different set of films.
-X:Men: First Class.
-X:Men: Days of Future past.
-X: Men Origins: Wolverine.
-X2: X-Men United
-X:Men: The Last Stand
In the second timeline for the X-Men series, Wolverine stops Mystique from killing the scientist and saving the mutant race. On the other hand, Mystique becomes a public hero by saving the president from Magneto. Like in the previous timeline, not all movies will be included but relevant to this plot. And the order for the second timeline is:
- X-Men: Days of Future Past. It includes the future sequences.
-X-Men: Days of Future Past. It consists of the past sequences
-X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
X-Men series “The New Mutants” release date and cast:
The 13th and final installation of the X- Men series will conclude with “The New Mutants.” The new mutants are released in the US on the 28th of August, and it is not received well by the audience. The film is heavily criticized by the audiences and the critics for not being horror enough as it is supposed to be. The film’s primary reason for not receiving the expected reviews is the infidelity done with the plot. A lot of things have been changed, including the tone of the movie. Hence the film didn’t leave quite the mark that everyone was expecting it to. Some major characters from the movie are also changes in terms of the behavior and the plot around them. So basically, not everything present is the carbon copy of the initial source. Watch the trailer of the film if you haven't already below
