‘Deadpool 2’ is Now the Highest-Grossing ‘X-Men’ Movie

I don’t envy the Hollywood big shots tasked with reading the internet’s tea leaves to try to deduce if a movie will become a pop culture phenomenon. Sometimes loud online fan support can translate to a box office dud (remember how hyped everyone seemed to be about Snakes on a Plane?). But sometimes they land on something like Deadpool, where grassroots fan desire actually translated into global box office success. Audiences can’t get enough of the Merc with the Mouth, and Deadpool 2 has just pa...

“To Me, My X-Men”: Thoughts on Season 2 of The Gifted

So I’ve been watching The Gifted since it started, because I had hopes for a well-done live action X-Men series, especially one that tried to get out from under the baggage of the more-established well-known characters to try to play around in the periphery of the universe. Thing of it is, there’s something a bit…off about what’s happening here, and I want to try to put words around it, so stick with me a second. The X-Men mythos was explicitly about being a fictionalized allegorical way to rea...

How Marvel's 'X-men: First Class' Classed Up the X-men Films

None As I discussed in my previous article on The Incredible Hulk (Letterier, 2008), the first mentions of "superhero fatigue" began to pop up in 2008. By 2011, that term had fully entered the lexicon. Each time a comic book film was underwhelming, or underperformed at the box office, a hundred articles declared that this could mean the end of the superhero film craze. This practice continues today, seven yeas later, and not one of them has been correct so far. Throughout 2011 there was no sh...
