Yeah, X-Men 1& 2, First Class, and Days of Future Past were really good. All those had former indie directors who helmed or produced smart crime\/action thrillers. Bryan Singer (XM 1&2, Days OFP) had directed The Usual Suspects. And Matthew Vaughn (XM First Class) had produced Guy Ritchie films, then directed Layer Cake and Kick-Ass, then later Kingsmen.\n\nAnd the Dark Knight trilogy stands apart as a landmark in comics movies. Writing\/directing that had smart action, and drama geared to adults, not just an adolescent audience.\n\n\nSpot on. The X2 will probably be one of my favorite super hero movies for a long time. I get that the MCU is more family friendly, but there's something about the way Singer did the xmen that was just awesome.\n\nI just wish the Phoenix movies would have been good. Last stand was garbage and I'm not hearing anything about the new one that compels me to watch it. Hell, I still haven't seen Apocalypse.\n\nThe biggest issue with DC is that they can't get anything to stick. MCU did a wonderful job of this. DC just keeps trying to start over again and again. Dark Knight series was excellent. Trying to put Batman into DC that close to the end of the Dark Knight trilogy was a bad move. Now we're getting yet another Batman. The Animated Series is one of my all time favorites, but DC is going to lose fans if they don't get it together on the movie side.\n\nWonder Woman was awesome IMHO. I'm sure Aquaman will be too.
