In other words I can't wait to see more of Fassbender's Magneto, Lawrence's Mystique and McAvoy's Xavier.
If they do succeed with everything that they did so great in FC, while also beefing up/improving on the smaller roles and adding some well done, larger scale mutant action to it all, then we might have something special to look forward too.
I think it's particularly important for those involved in the film to think beyond the film itself, because the time travel will alter how the land lies, possibly creating a new timeline and changing the continuity for some of the characters if not all. So there has to be an awareness of what they want to be left with at the end of DoFP.
