Default Re: The #4 movie - which movie series will have it first?

It doesn't count because of the context of which the OP is implying. If you actually read what the OP wrote, it's clear that he means a fourth film like X-Men 4, Spider-Man 4 or Iron Man 4 would be. Since X-Men was the first movie in its series, in the context of which this thread was made, any prequels should only count as -2, -1, and so on. The Star Wars prequels, in the context of which this thread was made, should only count as -3, -2 and -1, while the originals should count as 1, 2, and 3. So no, there has not yet been a true #4 Marvel movie yet.

Raina wasn't the only one changed in there, and I'm pretty sure the DNA results that I'm running right now will confirm that there's nothing wrong with the data in my head Skye. There's something wrong with you." - Leo Fitz
