Re: 20th Century Fox upcoming Big Announcement
Yeah but I think it will be difficult locking up McAvoy, Fassebender, Lawrence, and Hoult for another trilogy after this. They are big names and I expect them to move on. So why would you build this new timeline around this current cast when they have already given you two and probably a third film down the line?
So this "reboot" may consist of the older versions of those characters, with a new cast in their primes. And age appropriate actors for Xavier and Magneto. Closer to Stewart and McKellan. That makes sense to me. Or you can hold off on the "reboot" for another 10-15 years, and then try to get this cast back for another round. I don't see this nucleus giving us SIX movies playing these characters.
I think DoFP is going to be it, and FC 3 is also a decent possibility to setup the new timeline. Then they will take a break; perhaps continue with spinoffs.
