Re: X-Men 3...seriously fans/people--WHY all the hate?
-Professor X dying
-Cyclops dying unheroically
-short running time
-Juggernaut wasted and simply being the muscle of the group
-unresolved cliffhanger ending after the end credits
-badass music, the best of the three
-Wolverine unleashing his fury with Juggernaut
-Magneto lifting the Golden Gate bridge
-again the excellent music during the Phoenix/Wolverine stand-off
I'm not saying Brett Ratner is a king among directors but he did the best he could, I think he gets more flack because of his Rush Hour movies.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
