Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion)
I think that DoFP itself should be the "proper" send-off to the OT. There's no point in doing another "last movie" after "the last stand"
that way you have the OT as the OT and DoFP as this sort of rite of passage film
What boggles me is what they'll be doing with Wolverine. Everyone is getting bored of more Hugh Jackman stand-alone films and the new pics released (still waiting on the trailer) doesn't really promise me something very meanignful and artistic.
It would've been if Aronofsky directed. Now it just feels liek another run-of-the-mill superhero flick. What happens to Wolverine? I love Jackman in the role and would love to see more of him. And a part of me still hopes for a Wolverine III movie but ... i dunno. DoFP would feel right if it's the last time we see the OT.
THE JUSTICE BULLETIN published some of my thematic analysis on the symbolism in Nolan's superhero saga.
I call it Heroic Archetypes
