But he is 12 years older than when he began with this franchise. And he does look more mature--and it's in a good way. But surely you don't believe he looks the exact same way he did in 2000?

And that's beside the point. My thing is, he (Bryan & Co.) still tried to find a way to shoehorn Logan into the story. That could've been James Marsden, or whoever else. That single scene--with Logan at the bar being approached by Xavier and Erik--sums up the character crux of the film franchise.

There is so much more to the X-Men than just those three characters. My hope is that Bryan will...well, (pardon the pun) evolve past them and really embrace the beauty of this mutant family for all it stands for.
