Re: Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen Return for Days of Future Past
Yeah, new Trek wasn't to fix continuity errors or give it an overhaul. It was so that the old continuity wasn't thrown out the window but could be said to still exist, just in a different time line. It was to free up new Trek so that they could do different things and not be constrained by old continuity so that everything could be fresh.
That's completely the opposite of X-Men here, where they are trying to throw out whatever doesn't work (Last Stand, Origins) as a result of their own missteps, and eradicate it from existence through this plot device.
