Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion)
As much as I enjoy Banshee and Havok, I'm not too bothered by their absences (unless, as Duran Man said, they introduce us to a slew of new mutants). The X-Men films have carried over every. single. X-Man from X-Men to X-Men: The Last Stand, dropping only Nightcrawler, and what happened? There wasn't enough time to properly develop them all. The film suffered, and fans complained. Now, they're seemingly trimming down less important characters to focus on the ones who do matter, and fans are complaining. It's a lose-lose situation, and I think it always will be.
Also, keep 1970s versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean out. This film is already balancing younger versions of Professor X, Magneto, Beast, and Mystique, as well as future versions of Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, and Colossus, with newcomers, Boo Boo Stewart, Fan BingBing, Omar Sy, as well as villains Peter Dinklage, the sentinels, and possibly Apocalypse. That is more than enough.
