A cure for mutantkind? 12 Days of X-Men Day 3: X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

May 29, 2019, 10:00 AM EDT

Welcome back to 12 Days of X-Men!

Starting Monday, May 27, we'll be revisiting a different X-Men movie each day leading up to the premiere of Dark Phoenix on Friday, June 7. We'll be discussing each film's plot and best moments as well as its place in the expanding universe of X-Men movies.

Today, we're talking about X-Men: The Last Stand, which is, technically, the first attempt at doing something resembling the Dark Phoenix storyline. Director Bryan Singer went across the street to Warner Bros. to do Superman Returns and Brett Ratner stepped in. Lots of mutants seething and fighting and having strong opinions.

Anyway, it's the final chapter of the original X-Men trilogy (sort of? ... it gets complicated after this one). It's now a 13-year-old movie, and a lot has happened since then. How does it stack up? Listen below and find out!
