Re: Famke finally speaks her mind about the treatment of Phoenix in X3
Ok, so they screwed up the phoenix saga (God knows why they were so reluctant to pursue such a fantastic story) and we were all a bit shocked at the result, which was a film that, to put it mildly, failed on pretty much every level.
Is there any possible redemption from this? Do you think when a studio approaches the material in the future for a possible do-over, that they'll realize how important the Phoenix saga is and give it the attention it deserves? Or will they just set up a simple 3 film arc and sidestep the Phoenix entirely, thinking it too risky to bother with?
Because it's really like there was no continuation of Bryan Singer's story. The third film is only barely in continuity with the first two. We pretty much just never saw the conclusion to the first two films. The third one is a total write off. It doesn't really even constitute a film since most of the characters are running around like headless chickens.
It just has to be done right some day. Even now, with Wolverine and the x-men, Jean Grey is being killed in the first episode. Avi Arad is the producer I believe so that's no surprise.
