With a use of a cover version of “The End” by The Doors, the marketing team are selling this film as being the last X-Men movie they’re going to make, aside from the spin-offs already in the pipeline (which include The New Mutants and X-Force), as Disney will acquire Fox and have stated their plans to reboot the franchise into the Marvel Cinematic Universe like they did with Sony and the Spider-Man IP (although Sony is still free to produce spin-offs that don’t involve Spider-Man).

Dark Phoenix is scheduled for a February 14, 2019 release date.
