We have an tag with the tag wiki

A film series of superhero films based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name.

Even with having a tag wiki for the universe tag it is still being used inconsistently and doesn't even seem an appropriate name for the franchise tag as the first movie was called X-Men and as per our tagging policy should belong to the first film only.

As we decided to tag movies/films/videos/shows of a given franchise with the associated franchise tag and following it for , , etc, why not also do it with the X-Men franchise? To do that we sure need a better suited name than , so that the tag can be spared for usage on questions about the X-Men's first film. Any suggestions are welcome.


I don't see any reason why we can't go with . It parallels very nicely with the , and until Fox decides to name it officially, we have no better option. (If/when they do, we can always just rename the tag).

The name is clear and obvious enough that people will recognize it, and both the X-Men Movies Wikia and the Marvel Wikia use the term to describe the film franchise.

SF/F.SE adapted this tag name a while back and so far, it seems to have worked perfectly fine.


Why not ?

A quick Google of phrases like "X-Men films" and "X-Men Cinematic Universe" shows that unlike the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, 20th Century Fox have not yet given their ever-expanding franchise an actual name.

Until they do, seems like the best option. It quickly ensures that people realise that this tag is solely to do with the X-Men films (and their related spin-offs), and a cursory check indicates that there have been no X-Men films made (such as animated films, or previous iterations) that we wouldn't also include under this header.
