Hello everyone and welcome to a special podcast right here at The Young Folks. With the impending release of Logan, we thought it would be a good idea to discuss the X-men franchise as a whole. Since 2000, the series has evolved and expanded well beyond the initial trilogy to include spin-offs and a sort of reboot trilogy (continuity is not what this franchise is known for). There have been some incredible highs, some disappointing lows and everything else in between.
During this podcast, writers Matt Goudreau and Michael Fairbanks recorded their thoughts on:
- X2: X-men United
- X-men 3: The Last Stand
- X-men Origins: Wolverine
- X-men: First Class (Briefly)
- The Wolverine (Theatrical and Extended Editions)
- X-men: Days of Future Past (Theatrical Edition and The Rogue Cut)
- X-men: Apocalypse
As a brief aside, both Matthew and Michael already discussed X-men: First Class on episode 12 of Directors of Cinema. If you would like to know their in-depth thoughts on the film, the link to the show can be found here. Michael also spends the last few minutes providing his spoiler-free thoughts on Logan. If you’re looking to catch up before it opens on March 3, this podcast provides everything you need to know. Thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy.
