    I have a few questions about the film...

    What time period is this in? (Where does this take place on the x-men-u timeline?)

    Are characters like Lockheed in this?
    ...we saw him in the storyboard animation you posted @tridon But after seeing the trailer it almost seems like having a little purple dragon running around wouldn't really work?
    and will Magik have her SoulSword? has to right?
    I wonder if there is a tonal shift in the film, where it turns less horror as they learn to control their powers and becomes more action / suspense?

    Anyways this film has me very excited. I may actually be the most excited for this one out of the 3 (until I see the Deadpool 2 trailer, haha).

    Magik is the sister of Colossus, so I'm very curious to whether this'll take place in Bryan Singer's X-Men universe or the Deadpool one (or maybe neither).

    Anyway, if they are still going off of the Demon Bear storyline from the comic, the Demon Bear is connected to Mirage (hence all the hellish imagery). Magik is directly connected to the Limbo dimension (essentially Hell), and she is helps Mirage stop the Demon Bear. If Magik opens the portal to Limbo, Lockheed could come through that portal. As for the SoulSword, she didn't acquire that until later on in the series, so there's a good chance that may not appear here.

    I believe this'll have a tonal shift, though. It has to. I guarantee that all of the hellish imagery in the trailer is being caused by Mirage. The only thing that throws me off is the creep in the smiley mask. That could be Warlock (a different Warlock than the one teased in GotG Vol. 2), but if it is, he'd be looking a lot different in the film than the comic books.

    Cheers

    This is a marvel/ fox/ x men film???!!! Well I wasn't expecting that. Looks like a well made indie horror, even with the title graphics that pop up in black and yellow.

    Looking forward to this a lot more now

    @tridon 3 x men films? What's the third one. I only know of this and dark Phoenix (or whatever the name of it is)

    ... Oh unless gambit is next year but I'm guessing that's 2019 now a director has been named

    Looks terrible. A Blumhouse/Marvel hybrid.
    When I saw the trailer I thought it was for a new Netflix Tv show.
