Re: Should Fox increase the scale of the franchise?
I think we'll get that big scale movie this time.
All the sequels dont need to be BIG scale everytime. At the same Dark knigh and DKR felt epic but had intimate momments too, so I guess X-men movie could go that route too. Its more about tone and how serious the main issue is than about big action and sets.
First Class had an important threat, but since the mutants werent known at all, it lacked that big scale feel. And the whole country isnt aware of what's happening, so that is a key point, I think.
In any case, Im pretty sure most fans will be pretty pleased with Days of future. They have all the ingredients to make an amazing movie. Drama, sci-fi, historical/political elements, and epic action.
Next Big X-Men Crossover
