totally agree about Jean. I never felt she was the lead female. To me Storm has a bigger role than her. At least her action moments were better than Jean. At least to me. And her scenes with Kurt were ten times better than any scene with Jean.
To me Singer didnt care too much about the female roles, to be honest. Yeah, there were four or five females on the movie, but the males are the ones who got the spotlight. Wolverine and Magneto. Kind of funny, when Storm, Jean and Rogue are some of the most powerfull x-men from the comics and tv shows.
