Marvel writer thinks the X-Men need a Game of Thrones-style show

Hard to believe, the X-Men weren’t an instant hit when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby launched them as comic books in 1963. It wasn’t until writer Chris Claremont started writing the book in the early 1990s. In the 70s, the real dysfunctional superhero team began. Claremont and company came up with stories like the Dark Phoenix saga and The old days of the future, and Claremont came up with iconic characters like Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Mystique, Sabertooth, Gambit, etc. Stan Lee may have invented the X-Men but Chris Claremont made them stars.

So when Claremont mutes the X-Men onscreen translation, it pays to listen. He talked a bit about it at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), according to SyFy Dây Wire. “I appreciate the fact that Avengers was cut in half,” he said, referring to how Marvel rescue Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, “But if it were me, I would do X-canon as Game of Thrones. ”

If I’m doing Black Phoenix, I would do it like Game of Thronesand start with Jean [Grey] go to school: Spend the first season making people fall in love with her; Scott [Summers, aka Cyclops] love her. And then maybe at the end of the first season we’ll move on and she’ll be Phoenix. And then in the second season, she was [go on to] do great things as Phoenix.

Fox actually adapted the popular movie Black Phoenix plot, in which remote kinetic mutant Jean Gray has access to such immense amounts of power that it damages her, like the movie Black Phoenix, main character Game of Thrones Sophie Turner as Jean. But it didn’t work out very well, partly because the complicated story was so compressed. The Black Phoenix saga also appeared in 2006 X-Men: Last Stand, Jean was played by Famke Janssen, but it was also a disappointment.

Claremont wrote X Men comics for 16 years, so it’s no surprise that he wanted this story to take its time. “For me, that’s how you do it,” he said. “That’s how I would do it, to build a line of increased tension and suspense… You want everyone on the edge of their seat to turn around and see what happens next. That [is something] The X-canon didn’t do well in the movies. “

Disney will create a X Men display in the style of Game of Thrones?

If there are any superhero teams with the inevitable crowding and complexity of comparing themselves to Game of Thrones, that’s the X-Men. There are many characters with a lot of storylines running parallel to each other.

Since Disney bought 20th Century Fox, they now have the right to do with the X-Men what they will. Will there be movies? Maybe a Disney+ TV show? Probably both. Whatever Disney does, I hope they treat the property with care and Claremont’s involvement as a consultant will not be harmed.
