The only good thing about X-Men FC was Fassbender and Bacon.  Other then that it pretty much was meh.  I liked what's his name too...the guy that played Prof X did pretty good.

This whole franchise needs to start from scratch.  It's just turned so topsy turvy.  They ruined the Phoenix saga and I bet they ruin Days of Futures Past.  The first 2 X movies were decent, but that's where it ended.

 @mellowdoux - You are mistaken, Sir, I never said I had the power. I said WE (the true fan's), as in a Collective, you know, like a Voter's Block has the power....

We, the Fan's have the Power.....and have had that Power ever since Michael Keaton bitched at Alfred for bringing Vicki Vale into the Batcave.....so don't bother trying to convince people that they have no impact....

And we STILL DO have that power, cause WE are the ones who will go see a CBM MULTIPLE time's.....You think Joe schmo went and saw Avengers 7x or TDKR more than once, I dont think so.........Dredd tanked for the same reason that John Carter tanked........their just not that Popular....

These CBM's  will ALWAY's be made, you know, just like the Lone Ranger and Sherlock Holmes are still being made, ergo, that day will NEVER come, so your reasoning about Xmen never being financed again is just plain silly. It's very nice of you never wanting to see a movie flop, but you are just being naive if you think a few failures would be the end of these movie's.

Personally , I would love to see X-men back in the hand of the People who will do it right, if that mean's there has to be a few bombs along the way......hey ya cant make an omlet without breaking a few egg's......

Vince Vaughn out of X-Men? What? Oh wait, nevermind.

Hey wait a minute... Vince Vaughn in X-Men? Yeah, that could work- wonder what role he could play?

Wasn't Vaughn lined up to direct X3 but bolted causing Fox to hire Ratner at the last minute? Now history is repeating itself. Singer bolted from X3 only to crap all over Superman. They hire again Vaughn to direct First Class but when the time comes to direct FC's sequel he bolts again. And now it looks like they'll be hiring Singer again.

What a freaking mess. I'm not normally a fan of rebooting a franchise since it's only been a couple of years since the last one but I think the best way to untangle this cluster fuck is to start over.

 HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! May the Fox X-Men rot in hell. yep, I said it. Fukk every X-Men movie with a brick. Fox has pissed all over every true X-Men fan so many times it makes me want to puke Reboot the X-Men with Marvel in charge, PERIOD. Die Fox, DIE.

BTW, Bryan Singer has not made a great movie since The Usual Suspects! Take that Singer fans!!! ROFL

Mania should do a 'What If marvel Got the X-Men Back?" fantasy casting. Sort of like what they did for the casting of the next throretical Batman movie.

Who could be good Prof X that is not Stewart?

Who could be a good Cyclops? The real one that is, not the turdish wimp that they portrayed in the first X-Men movies then KILLED. >:(

How about a good Jean Grey?

Beast?

Iceman?

Angel?

Stop there as they are the FIRST CLASS. Dumb ass Fox and dumb ass Singer. Kill off these movie abortions.  ALso, as much as I love Logan FORGET HIM for the first two movies at least.

I don't doubt that they'll be ready in 18 months.  My bigger concern is that the director swap (particularly if they bring back the arrogant, overconfident Singer) will leave this film as a bigger mess than X-Men: The Last Stand.  Instead of fixing things, Fox could irrevocably break the X-men for feature films.

Of course, the positive possibility out of that is that Fox can't make another bankable X-film afterwards, and the rights can go back to Marvel to make a GOOD movie out of their mutant franchise.

 Everyone keeps forgetting that Wolverine is part of the Xmen deal. So a Wolverine movie put out keeps the X-men property tightly in Fox's hands. Singer's Jack the Giant Killer has been plagued with issues from the start, so this will probably further delay (if not outright kill) that project IF Singer is the director Fox decides to plop into the chair. 

This isn't the only bad news for Fox, since they had a similar problem with the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The director for that one dropped out suddenly only to be replaced by the guy who directed Cloverfield. One has to wonder what Fox execs are doing that are making good directors drop such large projects just before they're scheduled to begin filming.

Fox has destroyed the X-Men while Sony masacred the Spider-Man franchise (aside from the most recent film). - Until Marvel regains the rights to two of the best comics ever created, we will never see a film that does them justice.

Damnit DarthoftheDead, weren't you just giving me crap last week when Zilla and I were bitching at each other, for making the same point you just made?  I totally agree with you about the notion that CBM fans DO have a degree of power in terms of how these movies get made.  Not only do we see the flicks we like multiple times but we're online ranting or raving about them from the minute the midnight premiere lets out.  If you look at the quality of CMBs before widespread internet useage and compare them to CMBs from the last 15 years or so, the difference is obvious.  While developments in technology account for some of that difference, I believe that fan driven interest is responsible for the rest.  Even now, look at the iron-clad secrecy agreements and on-set security modern CMBs have to prevent images and script notes from leaking.  That's all to prevent us getting online and creating negative buzz if we don't like what we see.  Power to the Fanboys.
