“This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.” – T.S. Eliot
Let’s begin with this disclaimer. It isn’t June yet and thus far in 2016 we’ve seen three other “superhero” blockbusters. Deadpool, Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War all hit the multiplexes and did well. So maybe we are suffering from superhero fatigue of a sort and not giving the latest X-Men film a fair shake. Or maybe the expectations were too high. It should also be noted that this is the 9th film in the mutant movie franchise since X-Men came out in the year 2000.
