Oh bite me.  Anyone who like this X-Men First Class garbage is no true X-Men fan.  That is a FACT.  They have RAPED the X-Men to DEATH.  IN THE AZZ.  PRISON STYLE.  WITH NO LUBE.  NO RESPECT.  FUKK FOX WITH A BRICK AND FUCK SINGER TOO!

Axia, my mutant telepathic abilities sense great anger in you. I'm sure of it. My powers are never wrong :)

Though I don't read comics regularly anymore, I was an avid X-Men reader since I was a kid. So I am a fan.The Fox version is a Hollywood adaptation of the book but I have enjoyed it for the most part . I love Bryan Singer's version for the basic set-up. He thought of it as a science fiction story rather than a superhero book, which works for me. Yes, there are character and timeline differences and the Brett Ratner directed X3 and the Wolverine movie were nowhere near as good as they should have been but I still enjoyed them.

You also have to remember that the first X-Men movie was done way before the current superhero wave mainly done by Marvel studios. In those they are as extremely faithful as the medium will allow. It's kind of new to do such a loyal adaptation of a comic.

Other people LOVE Batman or Superman.  I LOVE X-Men.  It is as simple as that.  Singer and Fox have FUKKED all over X-Men and it pisses me off to no end.  So screw them with a brick they get none of my money.  I don;t care what Singer does he is an ass in my book from here on out.  Him and Ratner both.  Fox can go die on the vine for all I care as far as the X-Men are concerned.

I am sure Marvel wants to get the X-Men back, but what can they do?  They just made some horrible business deals in the past and how they have to eat tons of crow pie.  At least we get the Avengers I guess.  *sigh*

Even the bit of slightly positive news on X-men isn't making me feel more comfortable about the movie.  No Cyclops or Marvel girl?  A flick about the original X-men that doesn't include the origianl X-men?  And hair for the professor!?  Oh wait, it must take place before Superboy caused that chemical accident that made the professor loose all his hair, causing him to swear vengance...right?

As for Scott Pilgrim's box office totals, it's too bad for Wright and Cera et. al. but it should be a financial lesson to studios that are buying up film rights to indy books before they even hit the shelf.  Regardless of the strength of the story, not every comic book should be made into a movie.  The audience for well established characters like Spider-Man, Batman etc. extends far into demographics that never touched comic books.  This is going to continue to happen pretty much regardless of movie quality.  Haven't seen Pilgrim yet but I'm sure it is at least good.

i think the problem with scott pilgrim was that they oversaturated the market with to much promotional stuf. I still think it could make back its money in dvd sales

xmen first clas no cyclops or pheonix. um if i;m right werent they the first students of xavier's I honestly still have my doubts about it. With so many people involved in xmen how long is this movie going to be. I sure as hell hope it is not in two parts.

GL movie- ill wait for a trailer

same for batman 3 I'll wait for some production photos before getting excited.

Who cares about a new Xmen movie... except James McAvoy is great.

Too long a wait for Green Lantern!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All these Corps members must just be background characters in a panoramic shot or something. But it will be GREAT to see anyway

The Green Team looks kinds meh... Hopefully they will only be showing glimpses and quick flashes of them on the screen. Sorry, but they look more like those stop-animation movie play-dough critters and action figures than modern day, digital cgi characters to me. Maybe this is actually the toy line we are seeing?

I liked what I read about the new X-men movie. They never admitted it was Emma FROST in the Wolverine movie anyway. I had actually never seen her use those crystal powers as an adult anyway (*gasp!*) so no big deal that she's in the new X-movie. I can't wait to see Bacon as Sebastian Shaw. Yeah, yet another degree of Kavin Bacon to add to that fun game. I personally didn't want to see Cyclops and Jean in the movie. I had enough of those crybabies in X3... What other mutants will make appearances? Hmmm... guess we'll wait and see.

Wolverine 2... I'm looking forward to seeing FOX ruin 'Patch's' life in Madripoor like they ruined the 'ol Canucklehead's' life in Canada. I only ask of 2 things to happen: Please give us Silver Samurai and Tiger Tyger. Secondly, please let us have our ninja Psylocke! Show flashes of her past and the Seige Perilous. I don't care how you get her in the story, just do it. I know we won't get to see Jubilee or Shadowcat, but give us some decent supporting characters! You'll piss off fans no matter what you do so just make it happen! *wink wink nudge nudge say no more*

I like most of those C2F quick hits, especially the one about the screenwriters from Iron Man taking on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think this is going to be one hell of a movie. Where Captain America is concerned, I totally trust Neal McDonough's opinion of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. And I am rather liking the sound of Adrian Brody playing Mr. Fantastic in a Fantastic Four reboot. I think he'd do a much better job.

About the Dylan Dog trailer, no worries Kevin Munroe. I knew it wasn't an actual trailer and it didn't produce any misgivings for the film. It had workprint version written all over it. I liked what I saw even though it was incomplete. Can't wait to see a finished trailer and then the movie. :D

What's with Princess Iolande? Is that how they're going to have her look in the movie? Where's the long black hair?

I concur with the positive feelings toward X-Men: First Class; the movie is sounding better and better all the time. After what I just read here, I'm definitely going to see this movie.

It saddens me greatly that a very original film like Scott Pilgrim has done so poorly at the box office.
What this means for all of us is studios taking less risks on original content and cranking out tired old reboots and sequels because enmass the sheep will go and spend their money on it.

While I like where the story is going with X-Men: First Class, I'm not all that crazy about the characters being used. Havoc instead of Cyclops? I understand Fox might be trying to keep some consistency with the previous X movies, but I don't like it. The movie should be a complete reboot of the series if it's set in the 60s. Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast (before the blue hair), Angel and Iceman should be the first class. Still, I'm looking forward to the movie and hope it's a GOOD movie we all enjoy and not just another Fox super hero cash cow.

Please, no Brody for FF. Just a personal thing, but I don't like him at all. Never have.

Rob, there's been as many con as pro comments about the Pilgrim movie, so please don't make it sound like we were all shocked at how badly the movie performed. I said from the word go it would be a huge bomb. The more they tried to cram it down our throats with all of the behind-the-scenes video releases the more certain I was that the studio knew they had a clunker. I think the movie was very inventive and had a lot of positives, but the big negative was Cera. He was pretty awful in the movie. I really think the movie-going audience is tired of his schtick. His last couple movies prove it because they crashed and burned...Youth in Revolt and year One. Scott Pilgrim might have had a better box office take with a different lead. The studios tend to really push a movie if they know it's going to be DOA at the box offie. They did it with Scott Pilgrim just like that horrible Land of the Lost movie last year. I guarantee you the studio's going to try and cram Green Hornet down our throat because they know already it's going to tank. The studios do this in the hopes of having a big first weekend. They know after its released and word of mouth spreads about how crappy it is, the movie will drop off the face of the earth.
