Avengers vs. X-Men
The maligned "X-Men: The Last Stand" got more than a few things wrong about “The Dark Phoenix Saga,” most of them stemming from the film’s need to keep a truly cosmic story grounded on Earth. The classic X-Men tale needs to head to the stars -– and it just so happens that that’s where the Marvel Cinematic Universe is headed. 2012′s comic book mega-event "Avengers vs. X-Men" saw the Avengers and the X-Men forming very different opinions about the motives behind the incoming cosmic Phoenix force, a development that’s totally plausible for the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the Chitauri invasion in "Marvel’s the Avengers". This film could even have the rebooted Jean Grey go through the motions found in the classic “Dark Phoenix Saga” storyline in addition to adding the Avengers in as opposition; a film combining the emotional center of “Dark Phoenix” while adding in the impressive scale of "AVX" could be the formula for a box office success.
