3.) Erik's back story
When you think about it, THE ENTIRE X-MEN FRANCHISE HAS FOCUSED NEARLY 100% EXCLUSIVELY ON THESE THREE CHARACTERS IN VARYING DEGREES.
And yet...we're getting another
Wolverine film...which is coming behind First Class--which was another
origin film for...guess who? Xavier and Erik. So as you can see, I am kinda SICK of seeing these stories OVER AND OVER AGAIN. They've been done--and to the expense of everyone else. My fear is that Bryan will just go back to where he's comfortable and not move the needle anywhere but backward.
I want to see Jean. I want to see Cyclops. Give me Storm.
Give me the X-Men.
