Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
Being such an iconic and epic storyline, and with the big cast we already have, do you think the best option would be to release it in two parts or just one standalone movie?

Being released, for example, in 2017 and 2018, back to back as Hobbit series, or Hunger games, with one movie each year.

Yes

I would have had DOFP as a two part movie each comprising two hours each.The future needs to be shown much more than the one they are currently showing in DOFP.I would have loved to see a long battle between the mutants(Wolverine,Magneto,Xavier and rest) vs Sentinels.They could have shown the death of many mutants including some beloved ones like Storm,NightCrawler and Yukio.Who wouldn't love a battle between giant robots and numerous mutants with varying powers?Action scenes are very popular with the general audiences and the death of many beloved mutants would have shown how grim and dark is the future.It would be arguably be the best opening scene in CBMs.Then the movie could cut to a flashback scene where Charles Xavier would explain how the death of one man started this mutant massacre.

I believe the base costs to do an apropos two part AoA film with the OT cast will be anywhere from 5-600 million dollars plus another 200 million in marketing costs. Willing to dish the money Fox???

I think it all will deppend on DOFP final boxoffice.

If it breaks the 700m mark, Im sure a studio like Fox could affoard a double shot and a two parts.

The question is: Is Bryan interested in directing something as huge?

With so many stories from the comics that these movies can adapt to, I don't want AOA to be split in 2 parts/2 movies.

In my opinion, after DOFP, they could do a movie that will tease and lead to AOA. Then in the next movie, do an AOA movie, then after that, maybe an aftermath movie.

Since the OT cast will have an end one day, I think a two part is the most epic way to close their series, instead of just one movie.

And since many franchises have had a two parts finale, I think X-Men deserve their own grand finale too, so Rise of Apocalypse and Age of Apocalypse (to use them as an example) would be awesome.

Not to mention that this way all OT characters/actors would get enough time to shine with their own little arcs and at the same time fans would get their BIG storyline in two parts, instead of just 2 hours. And Fox would get even more money with two parts, so.... its a Win-Win situation. The actors win, the fans win and Fox wins.

Too much of characters and story for one movie, definitely 2 part movie.

Umm you are forgetting those movies were based on books. And the studio obviously wanted to get more money from their movie adaptations so they divided the last book into 2 to 3 movies.

With X-Men, they don't need to do that.

It depends on the reason for splitting it: if it is the Potter/Twilight Mentality - two halves just so the accountants can cream their undies-I would prefer not. If the story is well written and divided, I would not have problem with it. Again, these arguments are made from the theoretical standpoint: I still have not read AOA, as I am scraping together money for the omnibus as well as the first Claremont omnibus.

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
To me, I just didn't like how Deathly Hallows Part 1 ended, it felt like an episode of a TV show than a movie and it also felt like a prelude and it was a prelude. Actually its my least favorite Harry Potter movie.

If X-Men has to end, I would see like the last 2 movies have their own plot and yet still maintain that connection between them.

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
Id prefer it to be 2 parts, AOA is a huge story. You could end PT 1 on a sick cliffhanger with Angel (getting his wings ripped off) and other mutants being held and becoming the Four Horseman.

psylockolussus 11-17-2013 09:40 PM

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
They could do that without labeling the first movie as "Age of Apocalypse part 1". They could just call it "Rise of Apocalypse" or something. Then the next movie as "Age of Apocalypse".

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
I'm cool with however they label it. Just prefer the Apocalypse storyline to be two films instead of one then he's out of the series. He's too big of a villain to axe out in one flick.

psylockolussus 11-18-2013 12:45 AM

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
One flick is indeed not enough for someone like Apocalypse.

Though I don't know if there's a way for them to drag him into a 3rd movie and a 4th movie. He's not like Magneto, where there are times that Magneto is fighting against the X-Men and there are times that Magneto is working with the X-Men.

In my imagination or wishlist, I want Fox to tease Apocalypse in a X5 movie then make him the lead villain for X6.

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
I think two films where he is one of the main villains would be perfect. They should take the Thanos route and build his presence up prior though. Or hint at least hint at hm to build hype and mythology.

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
I am sure Apocalpse will be In films but I am not sure about adopting AoA storyline for films.
They are doing a time travel story In DOFP and I am not sure they would do another
time travel influenced story.And AoA Is big storyline to do.It's a big undertaking even just taking some of core elements.

X-Force should start AOA story, I want to see Archangel in action.

Angamb 11-18-2013 10:10 AM

Re: Should AGE OF APOCALYPSE be released in 2 Parts?
 
You're not the only one, Archangel could be really badass, and awesome visually, and played by Ben Foster even more awesome

Id love to see an aerial fight with Archangel and Rogue, that would be like a dream come true to me. My two fave characters flying at the same time

^ I agree that having two, back-to-back timeline movies would be a bit "been there, done that", unless one is a feeder to the other.

The whole Age of Apocalypse could easily be done over two movies.

Now, the one way this could actually work is if we thought of it as 3 movies, instead of 1 movie (DOFP) and two separate movies (AOA).

So Days of Future Past would end with a new timeline with Apocalypse in charge and a Magneto led resistance. This would make AOA the first in a series of movies that could go through the whole DOFP to ROA to AOA. Yes there would be timetravel in multiple movies, but it would all be cause and effect from the same larger story, just split over 3 movies!

If Cable is leader of X-Force, then Apocalypse has to have cameo in this movie.
Also I would be in extasy if see blue skin Ben Foster at end of DOFP movie.
Cable and Archangel would have reason to cooperate against Apocalypse.

Hey everyone,

I just finished adapting an AoA screenplay and am currently trying to make fellow fans aware that it's out there and it's REAL! Written by a fan FOR THE FANS. I need EVERYONES support, I'm trying to get Fox's attention to the fact that us fans deserve an X-Men film to be proud of!

For comic-panel/story:screenplay comparisons and teasers follow my Instagram @age_of_apocalypse_movie or click here http://instagram.com/age_of_apocalypse_movie I also took time to address some questions fans may have about the screenplay there as well. Please take a moment and check it out.

This is only the beginning, SPREAD THE WORD! LETS GET X-MEN MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!
