Original Fox Timline

  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine
    • If we go by the in-series continuity, our first stop chronologically would be with this origin story for fan-favorite character, Wolverine. Sadly, and there's no other way to put it, this movie sucks. Hard.
  • X-Men
    • We then jump over to the very first movie in the FOX film series to be released, the blockbuster original.
  • X2: X-Men United
    • With the money the first movie was able to produce, FOX green-lit a bigger, splashier sequel. Thankfully, unlike many "bigger is better" sequels, this one actually holds up.
  • X-Men: The Last Stand
    • Due to too much studio interference, the team behind the original two movies left mid-way into production of the third. The troubled production was not well received by fans, so we take a look to see just what went wrong in the film.
  • The Wolverine
    • The final film in the original continuity (more on that in a sec), this film follows the story right after X-Men 3 as we go with Wolverine on a journey of recovery (and ninjas).

Fox Reboot Timeline

  • X-Men: First Class
    • We take a look at Fox's attempt to soft-boot the series after the back-to-back train wrecks of X-Men 3 and X-Men Origins via the magic of a prequel.
  • X-Men: Days of Future Past
    • A look at the groovy 1970s-based sequel in the new continuity. Also featuring the stars of the original continuity. Oh, and time travel, because this wasn't confusing enough.
  • X-Men: Apocalypse
    • A new threat comes for the X-Men and the world, but it's a treat that's been buried in the early, sleeping for thousands of years...
  • Dark Phoenix
    • Here it is, the last big release in the main Fox X-Men series, and the series ends (appropriately enough) with a flame out.
  • Deadpool
    • The "Merc with a Mouth" finally gets his own film, after years of panning and failed attempts, and we dive right into the chaos.
  • Deadpool 2
    • He's back, and even bigger (and mouthier) than ever. With its "More is More" approach, Deadpool 2 certainly delivers on everything the fans of the original film wanted. Namely: more. But does it really succeed?
  • New Mutants
    • A planned look at the upcoming mutant-horror film (and overall final film in the franchise)
  • Logan
    • A future-set mutant-drama starting everyone's favorite character. We take a look at this dark and gritty final Wolvie film.

Fox X-Men on Television

  • The Gifted
  • Legion
    • David Haller is a troubled man, inflicted with at-time debilitating mental illness he can't control. And, as he's soon to learn, he's also the most powerful mental mutant on the planet...
