The Idea that X-Men has to be totally Inline with each other but other franchises and TV shows don't Is getting trying.
X-men first Class had many connections to X-Men and X2.The idea It's different timeline If It's doesn't stay 100 percent to what was said about past Is crazy.
People are trying to make things way way way more compicated than It needs to be.The Idea that Bryan Singer Is directing and X-Men and X2 not part of official film timeline
Is crazy.The future with Sentinles will be post trilogy or post X-Men/X2.
This is an X-Men board so of course the emphasis is going to be on X-Men. But I wouldn't want any other franchise to have continuity issues either for that matter.
The reference to Xavier being 17 in X1 was so specific that it sounded like Singer and the writers had some specific event in mind that we might one day see.
However, the story for First Class meant retconning/ignoring that detail.
Of course fans and fanboys are going to notice this stuff - and discuss it to death.
There's very little we can do about those past issues but, by pointing them out, there is the hope that the filmmakers might do more mapping out of the franchise in future and try to avoid similar issues occurring again.
