Re: Which X-Men Should die or be dead in DOFP?
Quite honestly, I would have no problem with them 'throwing out' The Last Stand or XMO: Wolverine, nor would I have an issue with seeing the Phoenix Saga done properly and respectfully. I wouldn't have an issue with them overwriting the events of First Class with its weird character choices either.
But the mainstream audience also has to be considered. They remember the basics of those films and their stories.
I wouldn't have any problem with a total reboot, to be honest.
I feel the films haven't reached their potential and the continuity has become tangled and messy. I'd prefer a more clean and linear approach like Marvel has done, where you know where things are going (even if Marvel's own films are a bit safe and not very memorable or exciting).
