I think it is reasonable for Marvel to have no plans at the moment. Behind the scenes do they? Probably. But consider Marvel is into 'phases' and they already had the next 5 years planned out when the acquisition happened. They seem to have the long game in mind. In 5 years spiderman, Strange, Guardians may be long in the tooth. Maybe some of the other properties will flop. Maybe the actors will want a lot more $ or maybe they will be bored with the roles. It may seem bad for the MCU at that point in time, but the X-men by then will be 'fresh' and primed for a reboot in Marvel style to keep the MCU going for another decade in the 'mutant' phase.

Yeah I know you're right and that makes sense if they already had plans. I just think xmen would be more important, more popular than some of the other movies they are working on like nova and eternals. If thought they'd be like, ok we have them so let's scrap some of these movies like black widow or eternals and make xmen movies... Idk I guess the other thing you mentioned about needed some time to refresh makes sense especially after this horrible dark phoenix

I think the most telling

I think the most telling reaction to the new film is that my local cinema had cut Endgame showings down to just a single 3pm slot to make room for Dark Phoenix, and now after a week Endgame is showing at multiple times in the evening again.

Spurn all ye kindle.

I was very surprised when I was able to get two good seats the hour it came out, and half the theater was empty, I'm not surprised anymore lol
