Yes. And what did we receive? First Class
basically just regurgitated (beautifully and effectively, mind you--but redundantly so, nevertheless) the same storyline for Xavier and Erik storyline again. And we still got a forced cameo from a much-aged Hugh Jackman in there.
And I guess that's my point. If Logan's not available, Bryan latches onto Xavier and Erik...these three characters are clearly his comfort zone. I get that. The question is, can he tell a story without them? Or at least in equal degree with a true ensemble story?
This is what I want to see. I will be cautiously optimistic, because I DO love Bryan as a director. His X-Men films are the Godfathers of the entire Hero Film genre's success and even why we have SuperheroHype! in the first place.
I just want to see a true X-story from him without the moviefied shortcuts.
