The different timelines of the X-Men movies
As of 2020, there have been a total of 12 X-Men movies released. These films are split into two different timelines. The first timeline is known as the “original timeline” and includes the first three X-Men films released chronologically: X-Men (2000), X2: X-Men United (2003), and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).
The second timeline is known as the “reboot timeline” or “First Class timeline” and includes the prequel film X-Men: First Class (2011) along with its sequels, X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). These three films take place in an alternate timeline where the events of The Last Stand did not occur.
In addition to these 12 films, several spin-off movies occur within the X-Men universe. These include Deadpool (2016), Logan (2017), and The New Mutants (2020). While these films are not technically part of either timeline, they exist within the same universe and often reference events from the main series of films.
Which X-Men movie is the best?
There are a total of twelve X-Men movies:
- the original X-Men trilogy (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, and X-Men: The Last Stand)
- the Wolverine trilogy (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine, and Logan)
- the prequel trilogy (X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X- Men: Apocalypse)
- the Deadpool movies (Deadpool and Deadpool 2)
It’s hard to decide because they’re all so different. The original trilogy is more lighthearted and fun, while the prequel trilogy is darker and more serious. The Wolverine trilogy is a mix of both. And then there are the Deadpool movies, which are just plain crazy.
So it depends on what you’re looking for in an X-Men movie. If you want nonstop action, go for Logan. If you want a more emotional story, go for First Class or Days of Future Past. And if you just want to laugh your head off, watch Deadpool.
As of September 2019, there have been a total of 12 X-Men movies released. This includes the main X-Men series, the Wolverine series, and the Deadpool series. The X-Men franchise is one of the most popular and successful superhero franchises, with a global box office gross of over $6 billion.
