And yet she was contractually bound to return for Days of Future Past and they're not even planning on heavily utilizing her to boot.
I'd be frustrated too.
Agreed. They should have never optioned her contract if they didn't want to use the character more. She is the star of a massive franchise. This isn't like Emma Stone in Spider-Man or Halle Berry in James Bond, Lawrence is the above the title lead in The Hunger Games not a girlfriend who needs saving. I too would like her role to be better written in Days of Future Past.
And I will be pissed if they are shafting Fassbender because he was the best thing about the last film.
Also I thought Berry's complaints about Storm were on the mark. It's obvious that Singer doesn't care for that character or Cyclops.
