I'm gonna hope this is not a case of bringing everyone back just for the sake of it, although Ashmore's Iceman never impressed me. Let's hope Kitty is a main focus of this just like the comics as I love Ellen Page. Overall though I'm really excited about this!




NeoBrowser -> (27/1/2013 7:31:38 AM)

Glad to see Iceman back. Loved his character. Never liked Ellen Page as Kitty, Katie Stuart was much better in X-men 1 & 2. So yeah whatever.
Really looking forward to this.




kittybinks -> Kitchen Sink?? (27/1/2013 8:46:45 AM)

Too many characters again. How are the audience supposed to get involved with any of them when their average screen time appears to be less than 5 minutes?




lureynol -> I may be the only person who feels this way... (27/1/2013 10:38:10 AM)

But can we have Cyclops back? I know he's not the most popular character, but he's pretty central to the X-Men universe.

I had no idea Ellen Page was so tiny - she looks like Paquin and Ashmore's kid in that photo!

Because not every character has to be a lead character?

They should really recast Kitty Pryde again, to keep in tradition [:D]




AdamL10 -> This won`t be good (27/1/2013 6:05:38 PM)

Fox have shown to be pretty much useless when it comes to their Marvel properties, X-Men 1 and 2 are the only ones that are any good. First Class was a terrible film which succeeded only in totally destroying continuity.
Yet they are still insisting on it being a prequel, going to be awful. (I`m hoping that the rights to the Fantastic Four revert back to Marvel before they can get a film into production in time, then they can`t screw that up some more as well)




AxlReznor -> RE: This won`t be good (27/1/2013 6:47:32 PM)

First Class was an awesome film. Not sure how it "destroyed" continuity. It fits perfectly well with the first two movies... I'm pretty sure they're intentionally pretending The Last Stand and Wolverine never happened (kind of like how Singer pretended Superman III and IV never happened when he made Returns).




UTB -> RE: This won`t be good (27/1/2013 9:53:09 PM)

Urgh. Paquin was my least favourite character from the first films. [:(]




sirvolkar -> X-Med: Days of Accents Past (27/1/2013 11:54:55 PM)

I can't wait for this film! Really looking forward to it explaining Magneto's sudden, ridiculous and reality shattering change of accent in the last 10 minutes of First Class? Can anyone explain why he goes all Irish after killing Sebastian Shaw? Is it cos he and Chuck are having their first barny and the ramifications of such a momentous event forces reality to judder? Or was it simply Magneto's second stage mutation? And just as important, how come he's English again by the time X-Men and X2 (bleh! stupid title!) take place? Or is it just me?




AdamL10 -> RE: This won`t be good (28/1/2013 1:21:23 AM)

It doesn`t actually fit with the first two:

Xavier states in the first X-men that he and Erik met when they were 17 , they clearly weren`t 17 in first class.

In X2 Erik claims to have helped Xavier build Cerebro, yet in First Class Hank built Cerebro

In X-men 1 Xavier is suprised when he can`t read Erik`s thoughts because he isn`t aware of the helmet, in First Class he clearly experiences the effects of the helmet and sees it, so why would he just forget?

In X-men 1 Hank Mccoy and Sebastion Shaw both appear momentarily on a tv screen in the background, Hank still looks human and Shaw is alive, yet Hank mutates completely in First Class and Shaw dies.

There are multiple references to Jean and Cyclops being Xavier`s first students in the first two X-men, yet in First Class it`s not, it`s the generic boring group they have in that.

And they are obviously counting The Last Stand as continuity, as they have stated that The Wolverine (which is going to be part of the continuity takes place after the third X-men and Ellen Page is supposedly returning as Kitty, her first and only appearence was in The last stand, so to remove last stand they couldn`t use her.
So including Last Stand that creates even more continuity errors.




Ulmaceae -> RE: This won`t be good (28/1/2013 8:44:22 AM)

Drokk to minor fanservice throwaway references. If a film has characters I'm sympathetic to, a decent plot and sfx that's not too intrusive, then it can stand on it's own.





djshaiguy -> YES! (28/1/2013 11:30:54 AM)

This sounds so f-ing epic. Can't wait!




buffster28 -> RE: YES! (30/1/2013 1:07:09 PM)

sounds good - happy that they are bringing so many characters back but also worry that the cast might be too big - i'm guessing some might be small parts only.

anyway another i'm really looking forward too.

Not to mention that Xavier was paralysed at the end of First Class while still pretty young, but in the flashback in Last Stand where he and Magneto went to see a young Jean, he was much older and still walking.
