Their excuse was that they couldn't find a role for him. Guess what guys? You're the script writers. These are the characters you are handed. It is your JOB to find a role for the characters. If you can't accomplish that, then you aren't succeeding at your job.
While I love the movie, I will forever have negative feelings towards Kinberg and Penn as scriptwriters for how badly they missed the mark on what the movie could have, and should have been, if they didn't botch it up.
Sums up my feelings perfectly Nell, he was a favourite from X2 no doubt, and they just disregarded him. Even a cameo or a line of dialogue (like they did with Myers in Hellboy II) would have surficed, just to ACKNOWLEDGE that the character still existed.
How Kinberg and Penn still get writing jobs is literally beyond me.
