Re: 20th Century Fox upcoming Big Announcement
totally agree with most of your points.
At the same time, I think a FC series can still be epic and really special, but that would mean to introduce new young actors to general audience as fan favourites Cyclops, Jean and Storm, and they still couldnt use other fan favourites like Nightcrawler, Rogue, Gambit or Colossus.
So if they want to go really big, X4/5 would be their wildest card.
They can still make a third FC movie, for sure! thats not the issue.
The issue is to think BIG after DOFP, and full original cast back IS the biggest card.
Next Big X-Men Crossover
* 2017- X-Men: Age of Apocalypse
Edit: Forget about 2017:
