Next X-Men film won’t be called Supernova

The next X-Men won’t be called ‘Supernova’.

That’s according to producer Simon Kinberg who also revealed that the new film will start filming later this year.

It’s not called Supernova,” Kinberg said. “One of the things we do when we make these X-Men movies, to be totally candid, is — any of these movies, it’s on Star Wars, too — is you come up with fake names to throw people off the scent and when you’re out making the movie, the signs that show you where the locations are say Nova, or whatever the fake title is, and people figure it out, and I don’t even know why we do it anymore.”

Reports suggest that the film will take its inspiration from the “Dark Phoenix” saga from the comics with 20th Century Fox looking to correct the issues in X-Men: The Last Stand back in 2006.

This time, Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey will become the Dark Phoenix since we saw her powers get unleashed at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
