Sort By:
Critics Consensus: Rendering a list of potentially explosive ingredients mostly inert, The New Mutants is a franchise spinoff that's less than the sum of its super-powered parts.
Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton
Director: Josh Boone
Dark Phoenix (2019)
Critics Consensus: Dark Phoenix ends an era of the X-Men franchise by taking a second stab at adapting a classic comics arc -- with deeply disappointing results.
Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence
Director: Simon Kinberg
Critics Consensus: Once Upon a Deadpool retains enough of the franchise's anarchic spirit to entertain, but doesn't add enough to Deadpool 2 to justify its own existence.
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Fred Savage, Josh Brolin
Director: David Leitch
Deadpool 2 (2018)
Critics Consensus: Though it threatens to buckle under the weight of its meta gags, Deadpool 2 is a gory, gleeful lampoon of the superhero genre buoyed by Ryan Reynolds' undeniable charm.
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin
Director: David Leitch
The Gifted (TV Show, 2017 - 2019)
Synopsis: A suburban couple's lives are rocked by the discovery that their children possess mutant powers, forcing the family to go on the lam from a hostile government and seek help from an underground network of mutants.
Starring: Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale
Number of Seasons: 2
Legion (TV Show, 2017 - 2019)
Synopsis: Legion follows the story of David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he's confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.
Number of Seasons: 0
Logan (2017)
Critics Consensus: Hugh Jackman makes the most of his final outing as Wolverine with a gritty, nuanced performance in a violent but surprisingly thoughtful superhero action film that defies genre conventions.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook
Director: James Mangold
Critics Consensus: Overloaded action and a cliched villain take the focus away from otherwise strong performers and resonant themes, making X-Men: Apocalypse a middling chapter of the venerable superhero franchise.
Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence
Director: Bryan Singer
Deadpool (2016)
Critics Consensus: Fast, funny, and gleefully profane, the fourth-wall-busting Deadpool subverts superhero film formula with wildly entertaining -- and decidedly non-family-friendly -- results.
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein
Director: Tim Miller
Critics Consensus: X-Men: Days of Future Past combines the best elements of the series to produce a satisfyingly fast-paced outing that ranks among the franchise's finest installments.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender
Director: Bryan Singer
The Wolverine (2013)
Critics Consensus: Although its final act succumbs to the usual cartoonish antics, The Wolverine is one superhero movie that manages to stay true to the comics while keeping casual viewers entertained.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima
Director: James Mangold
Critics Consensus: With a strong script, stylish direction, and powerful performances from its well-rounded cast, X-Men: First Class is a welcome return to form for the franchise.
Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Critics Consensus: Though Hugh Jackman gives his all, he can't help X-Men Origins: Wolverine overcome a cliche-ridden script and familiar narrative.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston
Director: Gavin Hood
Critics Consensus: X-Men: The Last Stand provides plenty of mutant action for fans of the franchise, even if it does so at the expense of its predecessors' deeper character moments.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen
Director: Brett Ratner
Critics Consensus: Tightly scripted, solidly acted, and impressively ambitious, X2: X-Men United is bigger and better than its predecessor -- and a benchmark for comic sequels in general.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry
Director: Bryan Singer
X-Men (2000)
Critics Consensus: Faithful to the comics and filled with action, X-Men brings a crowded slate of classic Marvel characters to the screen with a talented ensemble cast and surprisingly sharp narrative focus.
Starring: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman
Director: Bryan Singer
