There are marvel films and avengers forums for that.
Since Hugh Jackman just wrapped the Wolverine In november he may not have committed for major focus for another X-Men film.Obviously he will play big role In future scenes
but majority of film takes place In 1973.
Calm down, no one's 'kissing butt.'
But it's reasonable to use other recent superhero movie releases as points of reference. Studios will be doing exactly the same. Why do you think Warners is so keen to get a Justice League movie off the ground? Why do you think Millar/Singer/Fox are all talking about an 'expanded universe' for the X-Men and suddenly showing interest in continuity (when they've never bothered in the past).
It's perfectly natural for comparisons to be made between Fox's output and the output of rival studios, such as Marvel Studios and WB's Dark Knight trilogy. Especially when those two franchises have been mega-successful. Fans want the X-Men to achieve the same potential on screen.
