The cinematic history of the X-Men is complicated, to say the leastNow it will get more complicated when we have to include it in the chronological order of Marvel movies and series. It’s not a little. Not only because of the number of movies, but also because there were so many timelines, created in the case of the “X-Men” by “Days of Future Past,” as well as decisions they later ended up regretting. Even Marvel movies aren’t infallible, as our rating of all Marvel movies attests.
From the inception of the new superhero cinema in 2000, to the pessimistic and bittersweet farewell, the rise and fall of the X-Men (and the occasional mercenary in their mouths) have kept us entertained for two decades thanks to their big adventures. a screen. And that’s before the X-Men movie (Bryan Singer, 2000) was all the domain. Superman IV: In Search of Peace (Sidney J. Furie, 1987) ended the Man of Steel on the big screen, and though Tim Burton brought something new, the advent of Joel Schumacher forced to put the ’90s adventure cape crusader into another era. . Singer, whether we like black leather or not, has taken the first step towards creating the most profitable subgenre in today’s cinema.
A successful cast, even those that caused the most disapproval at the time like the then-unknown Hugh Jackman, was a big part of its success. (And all this time later, he’ll be back in ‘Deadpool 3’). Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart took the characters as far ahead as they came in and comic fans ended up as satisfied as the general public thanks to the interest in a good adventure story without straying too far from the characters in the panels. Although many still accuse The Matrix (Lilly and Lana Wachowski, 1999) of overindulging in black skin that prevented them from seeing Logan in yellow, its resounding box office results belied Fox’s initial fear that it all might blow up in the dark. An expensive screen, which is why the producer did not dare to bet on the extreme, noticing in some designs that it was too cheap. Yes, we’re talking about poor Sabretooth.
But that all changed when the box office delivered its verdict, beginning an unstoppable comic style that led Fox to create an intricate makeshift mystery that, after Disney swallowed the brand, was left hanging in an alternate reality. The success of Avengers: Endgame cemented its mid-term (if not long-term) future for superhero cinema, and with the arrival of the Multiverse in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the obsession with synergy Kevin Feige And company in the spin-off TV series Mutant inclusion seems imminent: we’ll see it, perhaps, in Marvel’s Phase 5 films. Among the films of 2023 we fear falling short.
Before X Patrol returns to the big screen, we’re trying to ask the already released adventures, which one would you prefer?

X-Men Origins: WOLFLAND (Trailer)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes place at the end of the 19th century and we see the origins of Logan and his brother Sabretooth, and it couldn’t be said better.
X MEN first generation
X-MEN: DAYS OF A FUTURE PAST (EXE Scenes)
Set between the 1970s and an inappropriate future, this movie completely inverts the entire mutated timeline. With time travel, Wolverine would change the present…well, no. Create an alternate schedule, which we will call Timeline B. All with help James Cameron.
X-Men Origins: Wolf
The bulk of Wolverine’s first solo movie takes place in the early ’80s, though it creates a difficult script gap with Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool… that will be patched later. At the end of the movie, Charles recruits Wolverine.
This movie is set in the 1980s, and is a result of that temporary line b, since Wolverine is being held captive by William Stryker, though the Patrol youths end up accidentally freeing him. Too bad Oscar Isaac doesn’t have a good memory for that.
Dark Phoenix takes place in the 90s, specifically at the beginning, and continues on temporary line b. It shows us the fully omnipotent powers of Jean Grey, the consequences of which will be vital to the group’s future.
It takes place in the early 2000s, and its story is considered one of the temporary line a. Wolverine meets the eternal Charles Xavier and the rest of the Patrol characters for the first time, as well as falling in love with Jean Gray.
The fantastic X-Men 2 builds on the previous film, and we see William Striker experimenting with Wolverine and giving him his powerful skeleton (something we’ve already seen in ‘Origins’), as well as Jean’s sacrifice, which will have ramifications for the next film.
The fantastic X-Men: The Final Stand no longer takes place long after its predecessor, the government has found a cure to eradicate the mutant gene. Jean reappears and will join Magneto to fight the Cure. Ultimately, Wolverine must end up killing Jin (or Phoenix).
X-Men: Eternal Wolf
After what happened in Final Resolution, Wolverine breaks up with the X-Men and decides to go into seclusion, after recurring nightmares with Jean, who he still loves. But he travels to Japan to help an old friend…and he’s having a hard time.
Immortal Wolf (post-credits scene)
After some time, Wolverine returns from Japan, and there he finds Charles Xavier and Eric Lencher (Magnetto), who ask him for one last favor: to help them stop an impending war. In the background we see an advertisement for Bolivar Trask, who is responsible for creating the guards.
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST (scenes shown)
This mission is Days of Future Past, so Wolverine travels back in time to prevent the war against mutants, creating an alternate timeline. (timeline B).
Deadpool, who is already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, takes place from what we see on screen in the year 2010. Although there are jokes about it, it’s not entirely clear what timeline it belongs to, but we assume that since there is no trace of Watchmen , is part of it temporary line b, Since the guards disappeared, mutants have not been hunted. At least not with giant robots.
Deadpool 2 takes place shortly after the first installment, and although it refers to the “first generation” X-Men, this appearance is temporarily impossible, because by the time the movie is set, they would have had ages of both Xavier and Bestia are nearly 60 years old. But of course, seeing the same cast from ‘First Generation’, ‘Apocalypse’ and ‘Dark Phoenix’, they give us the key to confirm that ‘Deadpool’ is in TIMELINE B.
With New Mutants we’ve already given up. The story revolves around this mutant mental institution between universes, with a little bit here, a little bit there, and even a dash of “Logan.” Let everyone do whatever they want with it, just like that, Disney doesn’t care.
With a surprise announcement, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman announced the return of Wolverine for the third installment of Deadpool, the first in Disney’s MCU, Deadpool. Also, and this made our job easier, they were quick to make sure that the events of “Logan” would not change, and that they would remain basic. This means that Logan died in Logan (forgive the repetition) and this movie will show us the character before the year 2029, the date that “Logan” is set. easy right? If not, Hugh Jackman explains how Wolverine fits into “Deadpool 3.”
The movie is scheduled to be released on September 6, 2024.
Set in the year 2029, this movie is set in a timeline unrelated to the other two…which we could call TRIBUTE TIMELINE. explain:
. Not part of TIMELINE Asince we’re told in ‘Days of Future Past’ that mutants have been practically exterminated by the Sentinels, but in ‘Logan’, the person responsible is Charles Xavier, and years after what we see in ‘Days of Future Past’.
. It is not part of TIMELINE BSince Deadpool 2, which took place several years ago, has been constantly referring to Logan’s death, although no one wants to believe we’ll never see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine again.
The most logical thing would be to put it in a separate kind of timeline, a kind of homage/farewell to two actors who played characters that everyone loved.
