Men: Dark Phoenix Originally Had a Completely Different Ending

Not that the X-Men franchise, featuring an allegedly mid-60s Michael Fassbender, cares much for that.

Of the many issues surrounding Dark Phoenix, probably the most undercooked is the film's villains. According to Tye Sheridan, who plays Cyclops in Dark Phoenix, an earlier version of Simon Kinberg's film saw the X-Men going toe-to-toe with Marvel's nastiest bodysnatchers, the Skrull.

"It's really hard for me to remember what the ending of this movie is", he said, laughing.

And then Jean comes down in the front of the United Nations, and causes... there is this huge battle between the guards at the United Nations and Jean Grey, and all the guards turn out to be Skrulls. "Originally, it was scripted that Charles and Scott go to the United Nations because - man, I'm totally going to mess this up - they go to the United Nations because they're going to try to tell the President that, 'Hey, we're under attack by aliens and, they've now captured Jean Grey.' Or, you know, whatever it is that we're going to tell him".

Dark Phoenix is out in theaters now. As for the Skrulls, it's pretty obvious to see how the shape-shifting menaces easily overlap with Dark Phoenix's baddies, although what they'd want with the Dark Phoenix force is interesting. Let us know in the comments section below.
