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.

You're a troll looking for attention.
Now please go to the top of the highest staircase you can find and just fall.
Once you've fallen, just lay there. As you lay there, think of how stupid you are.
Then think of how your stupidity got you there.
