  I totally stole this from another person on SuperHeroHype. But is is exactly how I imagine the meeting for the Fox executive dicks when they were starting up the X-Men movies. HAHAHAHAHAHA.


Fox exec #1: Cyclops? But we can't see his eyes. How can he be the lead if we can't see his eyes?


Fox exec #2: What about the guy with the claws? We can see HIS eyes, right? How about we make HIM the star of the movie?


Fox exec #3: I don't know. He's really short in the funny books. Plus he's scruffy and dirty looking. Worse, he kills people. This is a PG-13 film. We have to get butts in the seats. And sell toys.


Fox exec #1: My point exactly. So make the one who shoots lasers out of his eyes a sidekick. But make him young and cute so the girls who don't like this funny book crap will like him. We'll give him some sappy moments with the bald guy in the wheelchair and let him fly the jet to throw a bone to the fan boys. Maybe even let him act concerned for the redhead doctor who's twice his age.

Fox exec #2: Yes! Oh, God, yes! So make the one with the claws the star. We can make him stab people and fight girls but without blood. We want this to be cool. We want the kids to keep coming back all summer and two summers from now and ten summers from now. We want this McDonald's big!

Fox exec #3: But you guys...that's not how it is. The guy 'who shoots lasers out of his eyes' is the team leader. In the comic books, he and the 'redhead doctor' have been together since the beginning and are the heart and soul of the team. They've been torn apart over and over again and keep finding a way back to each other. Can't we just write a good story for them and have
"the guy with the claws" be who he is in the books yet also bring in some much needed tens -

All the other Fox execs: Do you like your job here?

Fox exex #3: Um...yes?

Two years Later: X-Men Directed by Bryan Singer.

Yeah boo to Fox boo to Fox says I.  When does the Iron Man 3 hate start though?  I'm tired of the fox bashing.  I need something new.

Well the level of suckage for this film just rose another 3 feet. What really sucks is that thousands of people are going to say this crap fest is good.

 Maybe these mofos be using all these mutants so they don't lose the rights to them or something.  Fox fucked up but First Class was gooood.

 I'm glad they're bringing in Bishop at least; I wouldn't think that you could do this storyline without him, and I was getting worried there for a minute.

 

Just watche it play out in the 90's animated series, fun times.

@Violator - I agree! Porcupine hugging spikes is the coolest mutation EVER!

@OmegaDean - I do sympathise with the fact that it sucks to miss out on a faithful comic book adaptation every now and then and listening to everyone whining about these movies makes me truly happy I never got around to reading any X-Men comics as a child. Sometimes ignorance TRULY is bliss! On the other hand, calling a movie a "crap fest" before you've even seen it doesn't really make much sense. I mean, even hanso, who hates the original X-Men trilogy so fiercely he'll <quote>; "sell one of your kidneys" <end quote> to prove it, says First Class was good. You should listen to hanso (...and that goes for all of you)!

 

I've personally had my fair share of comic-to-film disappointments over the years, but in this case I'll have to give Bryan Singer some well deserved credit for his groundbreaking work in modernizing the super hero movie genre. "X-Men" was the first SH movie to break down the barrier between the average movie going audience and the (up until then) strictly secluded comic-nerd fanbase. The style and tone of the first "X-Men" was truly unique for its time with smart dialogue and refreshing, grown-up humor. Some of us non-nerds also enjoyed the fact that the characters DIDN'T wear their original goofy-looking spandex costumes. For the first time in movie history you didn't have to be a complete uber-geek to appreciate the genre and that's no small feat by any means. Now let's find a thread about a movie that we actually like shall we? (Hell yes, they be puns!...)

 the more mutants the better!

This is going to be an incoherent clusterfuck of a movie. Fox has so screwed up the X-Men and the FF that I don't think that they want the rights back right now.

X-Men 1 and 2 were the only decent movies.  The rest are crap.

And Bishop doesn't not belong in this, he was never part of Days of Future's Past.  He was part of another future timeline.  Although I can forgive him being in the movie since you don't want to mess people up with a multitude of timelines, etc...  And I can even see Rachel Summers being in this.  SHE actually would make sense being in this movie since DOFP is how she came back in time to the present X-Men.  Most of these mutants better be used as mostly background fighting in the movie or he'll just kill it with dialogue "Hi I'm Bishop...oh, and this is Sunspot, and this is Colossus, and this is Shadowcat, etc...."

And for the dude who asked...the bad guys are the sentinals.  I'm thinking this one will involve both the good and bad mutants to be banded together in the future fighting the sentinals, just like in the comics.

I'm so tired of these fucking hacks catering to the twilight tweens. Damn you Bryan Singer Damn you!!!!!
