Default Re: "Romeo & Juliet Return?": The Official Jean Grey/Cyclops Debate - Part 1

All good points. I think the major outlier though, that may at least counter Fox's perceived lack of interest in Cyclops, is X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That movie reeks of studio control, and has every opportunity to be an unabashed Wolverine love fest, yet it goes out of its way to include Cyclops and not only to be a lame foil to Jackman's leading man. Granted, his inclusion, along with the other mutants, is a stepping stone to the then Josh Schwartz First Class spin-off, but it does show that Fox is not only interested in further exploring the X-Men universe but doing so with Cyclops as well. Perhaps this attitude will continue after Days of Future Past? With the recent lackluster performance of The Wolverine, surely the studio realizes that the franchise can't survive on Jackman alone?
