This movie will suck but since they'll put in some flashy charcters or like mentioned above the sentinels. Some would be so psyched to see them they'll forget how bad the movie was.

 Fox please sell the rights back to Marvel... Now!

The Usual Suspects is looking more and more like the outlier for Singer rather than standard fare.  Also, Fox has truly made a mess of the X-men franchise and I have little faith this sequel and The Wolverine will be worth the price of admission.

wow dudes, calm down, Vaughn is still a relatively new director so it's not the end of the world if he chooses not to do sequels!  He also passed on Kick ass 2 and I'm sure that'll turn out fine.

Singer is more than capable, the actors are locked in, I have faith that this will get pulled together and deliver a fantastic follow up to my personal favorite film of summer 2011.

As I said on the Millar hints Sentinels article, this makes me quite said because I felt it was Vaughn's execution that made that such a great movie for me. If anyone is going to take the reins on this I would rather it be Singer than anybody.

As for everybody wanting Fox to just give the movie rights back to Marvel, read my lips through this comment: It ain't going to happen so just get over it!

You might as well be saying about the Broccoli family who own the James Bond rights, "Quantum of Solace sucked so bad and I hate Daniel Craig! I wish they'd just give the rights away to somebody else!" That ain't happening either. In both cases the movies have always been extremely popular. X3 was the biggest moneymaker of the original X-Men trilogy. Yeah, I said it! You can hate the movies, Fox, Singer with all your heart but you're just burning ulcers in your own stomach over it.

The most that might happen is that X-producer Lauren Donner has said their is the possibility of crossovers with the Marvel/Disney characters.

Sooo right Monkeyoot.  The fractured rights to Marvel's movie properties are the legacy of terrible management in the 80s and 90s and right now they are in a state of Humpty-Dumptitude:  All the King's Lawyers aren't going to be able to put them back together again.

I wouldn't be surprised if Miller bails on Fox too since he and Vaughn are so tight. It could be that Vaughn and Miller wanted to use the Sentinels but Fox said no.

Won't Singer be too busy working on pre-production for the sequel to Jack the Giant Killer (or Slayer or Whatever the Current Name Is)?

 There is one Possible way for Marvel to get the Right's back, but like Monkeyfoot I dont think it would happen. We as a whole would have to boycott the film.......

If  Xmen flick's bomb enough, 20th century fox might be willing to sell the right's back...maybe...

 @Darth

No, sir. That could be disasterous. If X-Men flicks bomb that badly... NO ONE will finance more to be made. Because for them to bomb in such spectacular fashion would mean that the general public stayed away in droves.

Fan Boys have to get to notion out of their head that they carry this "incredible power to create or damn projects".

Sorry... you don't have that power. The latest "Dredd" movie is proof of that. All the fans (of which I have been one for 40 years) rallied to see it, but despite the power of fantstic reviews, it tanked at the box office. Ergo, the general public at large (which is a much higher percentage than just the comic book fans) had little to no interest.

So be careful what you wish for!
 

Personally, I will never wish for a mega-budget X-Men or Spider-Man to flop, whether I actually like the movie or not. Because quite simply, it could be the death-knell for comic book movies at large; a sign that, to the general movie-going public, they "just aren't cool anymore".

I don't think any of us truly wants that day to come.
