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

I agree, no plans have been set in stone beyond this film, mostly because Fox is not as good as Marvel in making these movies. If they actually did have plans, there never would have been continuity errors to begin with.

I think it's possible that a lot of the altered timeline can be explained with a simple voice-over and montage of footage from the original trilogy, particularly X-3, with some new footage inserted to show what changed...

This could be the opening of X4, with some comment about time (similar to the mutation VO in X1). The montage with new footage could show how outcomes of certain events were changed and set-up X4. If they don't undo X3, they can insert flashes of Cyclops unconscious in a hospital room. And a shot of him appearing in the final battle... possibly talking Jean back from insanity, cut to a few years later and we begin...

That being said, you can still do either another First Class film, that now matches Continuity with X4, OR you can include that cast in Flashback sequences or memories in a current X4. It's all speculation at this point, but sometimes speculating the possibilities can be fun.
