Default Re: New characters you want to see in the First Class sequel?

Unlike with introducing a minor or supporting characters like Polaris and Dazzler, they could give them a role like Havok and Banshee in First Class and it won't matter that much because they aren't Jean, Cyclops and Storm. But if the younger version of those 3 didn't get enough focus and screentime because the movie also had to deal with the original cast then it could be a problem for the movie.
You think so? I don't see it that way at all. All the character development necessary, at least for Jean has been invested already over the last few films:

*Jean already had a backstory in X3's opening flashback.

*If you want to count it, Cyclops had a backstory in XOW

Storm and Cyclops, although grossly underdeveloped compared to Wolverine are certainly extremely familiar to moviegoing audiences. There's no need for set-up to "introduce them", as there simply aren't any other mutant black girls with white hair or cute dorky guys with red glasses on their faces.
