Ugh. I would hope that after people have finally seen how bad an X-Men movie can be in the wrong hands (Apocalypse) and how good an X-Men movie can be in the right hands (Logan), there would be close to no tolerance for more tiny, sh***y Singer-esque movies.

Its pretty funny that the 90's cartoon of X-men is still more faithful than all the X-men movies combined.

I think we're past the point of CBMs NOT making bank in America. They're like the Fast and Furious or Transformers... some are good, some are terrible, but they all make money and they never lose a core audience. Which really irks me...

Oh well. I'm making one prediction now, and I'll absolutely be proven right:

At some point in the movie, Magneto will want to side with the aliens and destroy humanity, or use alien technology to destroy humanity. Because Magneto is ALWAYS the villain.

Do you think we will get another flashback to Auschwitz? I don't think we've seen enough of those.

I'm just sitting here trying to figure out how they'll make Jennifer Lawrence the star of the movie.

Also, do you think Quicksilver will save everybody from an exploding spaceship in slo-mo?

Whenever the writers can't figure out why a character should change his mind about something, they toss in a sentimental First Class moment. So we'll probably get another one of those also.

What classic '90s tune will he listen to? Do you think he'll still be living in his mom's basement?

Actual representation of the x-men franchise not counting Logan and Deadpool

so is Incredible Hulk not Beast going to be be back. Seriously I hate that beast in this movie verse can turn human whenever he wants.

Also **** J Law she comes off as a whiny bitch not wanting to wear the mystique costume when Rebecca Romijn never complained once while doing it.

They should kill Mystique off brutally for both Lawrence's sake and ours.

You mean she isn't already the leader of the X-Men?

Of course. And the movie will be full of 30 other moments where, had Quicksilver been there, the situation could have been completely averted.

Whatever you say, Bryan. A bit ironic that ten years later Singer is again unable to direct the Phoenix storyline. Last time it was because of Superman Returns; has there been an "official" reason for Singer to drop out of the project this time, or have they realized that his name no longer sells tickets?

Had to be something on Singer's end. Doesn't want to just be pigeonholed as X-Men guy forever, though knows that if he gets 2 X-Men duds in a row that'd be the end of even that. Deadpool and Logan's reception probably has him shook, too, feeling a bit out of touch. While the studio would doubtless be leery of giving him the car keys again after Apocalypse, I don't tend to think they'd believe Kinberg flying solo would yield better results.

This franchise honestly peaked with DOFP.

I would say that First Class was the high point. It was the first time that anyone outside of Wolverine or Jean felt like a real character.

First Class was definitely the high point for me. I thought DOFP was mediocre and a wasted opportunity.

Some of my reservations about DoFP were fixed with the Rogue Cut, but the whole thing about Mystique changing her ways was so forced and almost silly.
