    The Superhero Watch: X-Men Movies United (Part 2)

    In the beginning, there were Stan and Jack, and yea, they begat the children of the atom. And yea, it was good, And as always seems to happen with good things, eventually they made some movies out of them. In part one of this two-part installment of The Superhero Watch, we looked at the six movies (so far) that make up the main X-Men movie franchise. Today, in part two, we're looking at the three solo Wolverine films, the two adventures of Deadpool, and we glance ahead at the future of the 20th Century Fox X-Men universe once it moves over to its new overlords at the Walt Disney Global Media Consolidation Phalanx and Tiki Bar. And don't forget to read the previous installments focusing on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man franchise, and the Superman films. And if you want to keep track of my progress in-between articles, there’s a Letterboxd list just for that purpose.

In many ways, I don’t think the current dominance of superhero movies would exist if it weren’t for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise. Today in the Superhero Rewatch Project (you’ll notice I dropped the “2018” -- I’ve resigned myself that there’s no way in hell I’ll finish this before the end of the year), we’re going to look at the eleven films that make up that universe thus far. And of course, feel free to read the previous installments focusing on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man franchise, and the Superman films. And if you want to keep track of my progress in-between articles, there’s a Letterboxd list just for that purpose.

    The story of the X-Men films to date is the story of three trilogies, plus Deadpool....

    The Cure For Fatigue

    ​Blame James Cameron for this one.

    Recently, the director of Aliens and Titanic has expressed some… shall we say “disappointment” about the proliferation of superhero movies. The man who is working on a Terminator reboot and four new Avatar sequels was famously quoted as saying “there are other stories to tell,” when speaking about the success of Marvel’s Avengers franchise. The man who helped make Arnold Schwarzenegger a megastar and who once almost made a Spider-Man movie went on to bemoan “hyper-gonadal movies about males without families.”

    I’m picking on Cameron a little here, I know, but that’s because he’s the most famous name that has jumped onto this particular bandwagon. He is by no means the first one. Lots of people have talked about “superhero fatigue” setting in, and with so many films in the genre coming out each year, it’s not an unreasonable concern. Marvel Studios is the juggernaut, but let’s not forget Fox’s X-Men franchise (which...
