 Not really Darth. Rogue is actually right. Chances are this new X-Men movie will make tons of cash just like First Class did. Fox will retain the rights and shit X-Men will continue on and on and on and on. Such is life and life is rarely just in any way shape or form.

Hell, we should all count our blessings that Avengers and all the other Marvel movies turned out so well.

I guess all I can hope for now is the total collapse of Sony Pictures and marvel getting the rights back for Spiderman.

 Wow I am amazed at the hate for the xmen movies, X1 was solid, X2 is in my top 5 marvel movies, X3 and Origins were kind of a mess but First class was solid. Singer has not made a bad xmen movie IMO. He is largely responsible for the current slate of marvel movies even getting to be made. Oh how different it would be for marvel had the original xmen flopped.

No, it wasn't because of HIM we have marvel movies. It's whoever decided "Let's make an Xmen movie" is the reason why we have Marvel movies. They could have gotten a better director/ producer who would have stuck w/ the source material, and we would have had a REAL Xmen movie AND we would still have amazing Marvel movies.

Ya, they could have also gotten a shitty director to make it flop, so thank God for that, but what we got was pretty much someone in between. But more comic book movies would have been made nonetheless.

Yeah, I'll agree that I don't know why they had to stray so far from the comics on X-men initially, perhaps it was purely with the logistics of a film franchise and they way they thought of movies in 1999 when it was created.  But First Class was awesome and can still turn into something approaching faithful if they do the Days of Future Past properly.  The focus was obviously on McAvoy and Fassbender's characters as young men, so why have all the well known characters cuttering up that chemistry that made the film so good?  It was the story of Eric and Charles as friends and allies and it was important to really lay the groundwork on that relationship so when we see them warring in the future, we understand why they still have such regard for eachother.

The next movie will bring about a lot of familiar characters I'm sure, though it seems some of you are so crushed there just can't be any salvaging now.  I still say that you can't rule out the studios doing crossovers, they have nothing to lose by joining forces and everything to gain!  In business that's all that matters!

 @HudsonTaco - Yep, they are good movies, if you totally ignore the characters and plot lines and continuity and everything else that is in the X-Men comics. So yeah, in that respect they are all right. If you are a true blue X-Men fan the are full of FAIL.

Sabertooth is not related to Wolverine at all, never was.

Havok is not Cyclops's father, that is his brother.

Cyclops is a combat and tactics genius. The Cyclops from the X-Men movies was a ineffectual douche.

Wolverine does not cry, EVAR. He gets mad and kills people.

Iceman was relegated to a third string bit part when he is really a founding member of the X-Men. He is also an Omega level Mutant. He could literally freeze the whole world solid.

Deadpool? Don't even get me started.

The White Queen was not a kid captured by some military d-bags like in Wolverine Origins. She was a founding member of the Hell Fire Club who are just as bad ass as the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

Beast was young in the First Class movie but just a little older in the X-Men trilogy. LAME.

Same for Mystique.

Nightcrawler was never some up tight religious d-bag like in the movies. Sure they said he was raised Catholic, but he was a happy go lucky guy with lots of charm.

The list goes on and on and on and on of why these movies are full of fail.

 Axia-LMFAO

I can't think of a better director for this movie than Singer.  The guy nailed the first 2 flicks, so I'm confident that he'll do a good job here as well.

Whoah, Axia777. You went a little over the deep end with your movie references. Half of that is not true and did not happen the way you explained.

thezillaman 10/31/2012 11:29:10 PM

 @rogue, it was teen oriented, it was waaaay to silly i'm not saying i diden't like it ' it was a big MEHHH"". .

I think Singer will use this movie as a way to reboot the whole franchise and erase the mess that was X3. Which is largely Singer's fault when he bolted to do Superman, leaving Fox to scramble to find a director. First Class was rushed and it showed with meh action and cardboard characters with the exception of Xavier and Magneto. I think that Fox was concerned that the rights would revert back to Marvel. So it was a smart move spin Wolverine off into his own series of movies. That way they'll always have an X movie in the pipeline.
