X-3,yeah they dropped the ball....but Singer was using Marsden in SR,so I don't know that he'd have gotten much screentime regardless.
In the first film he is handled fairly well. You at least can sense he was
in charge before Wolverine showed up. His best action scene wasn't until X-Men 2, and it was the shortest one in that movie, and
he lost it, while the defense of Professor Xavier was on the line.
I wouldn't call it great. It would be a different matter if we were talking about some 2nd tier X-Man, but not Cyclops. I understand that Wolverine was the big draw for the franchise, but come on.
