Re: 20th Century Fox upcoming Big Announcement
I see your points about the tone, LS!, but don't you think that was changed a bit when they decided to make First Class the closest film yet to the comics in terms of tone? Magneto's helmet, characters that ACTUALLY fly through the air. Comic accurate costumes and the like.
And surely that was all minor stuff, but it did help bring out what this series is capable of. And now we have a film with time travel and giant robots... (lets also remember that Bryan gave us a gorgeous FIRE Phoenix, albeit briefly, in X2).
