@mrmonster: The x men getting less popular has nothing to do with their movies. They're comics have been lacking for years and their message is slowly becoming not as relevant it's 2018 where discrimination still exist but with then latest generation taking over its becoming more and more the minority.
Doesn't help that the whole mutants vs the world thing is stale now and there's not much left they can do with it because the concept honestly doesn't make sense any more.
Sure the movies aren't helping but X men movies were never a reason the books were selling. Tbh the X men ran past their prime before last stand came out ( AKA the first bad X men movie)
@samhmd1: Pity for what? We were calling it a next Dark Knight when it came out.
Dark Knight's overrated too. But the only reason Logan got that Oscar nod was because the Academy felt they owed Jackman some kind of recognition for 17 years as Logan and there weren't many entries for Adapted Screenplay so they could tolerate it being in there.
@marlboroman: 90% of Logan is just "The Wolverine" again. Not so shocking since its written and directed by the same guy.
Wolverine is written by different people. They just have the same director and directional wise Wolverine had no issues the problem was the written plot and it's supporting cast. But even it's same director there are massive differences between the two movies ambition and effort levels.
