With the status of New Mutants unknown, Dark Phoenix may be the last film we’ll see from the current X-Men movie franchise. The movie, which adapts the Dark Phoenix Saga from the comics, wasn’t a massive box office or critical hit, though it does provide some closure to the series of films that launched with 2000’s X-Men.
With Dark Phoenix now available on digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD, we decided to spend some time with the audio commentary included on the home release. Writer/director Simon Kinberg and producer Hutch Parker devote the entirety of the film to discussing the difficulty in filming certain shots, some changes that were made from the script, and several other interesting tidbits–including how fake the Xavier School location is.
Follow along to find out what we learned from the Dark Phoenix home release. And make sure to check out GameSpot’s review of the film, as well as our explanation of the movie’s ending and a look at how the mutant Dazzler was finally brought to life.
