Fans of the first saga have been numerous to blame X-Men: The final confrontation his freedom from the plot of comics. The arrival of the Phoenix had, according to them, been clumsily brought, too fast and suffered from a denouement too unconvincing. So they jumped for joy when 20th Century Fox Studios announced a return of the saga in 2011, which actually repaired more or less timeline inconsistencies with X-Men: Days of the Future Past. The two intrigues therefore simply do not follow the events of the same reality and are not connected to each other.

And that’s good because the director Simon Kinberg is on board since X-Men: Final confrontation, he has either written or co-produced each episode so he knows where he is from and what he is based on. He decided to resume this plot, remaining more faithful to comics and starting on a realization more accomplished, darker and more realistic of the original work.
