Re: "Romeo & Juliet Return?": The Official Jean Grey/Cyclops Debate - Part 1
I know this isn't popular, but despite how good First Class was, I'm glad that Matthew Vaughn left the project as a director and took his misogynistic and juvenile tendencies with him. Vaughn had his shot, and he succeeded, but let's get back to someone who actually cares about the world and its characters.
I also agree with this saying that this movie is not a passing of the torch back to the main cast. The focus on the 70's, the fact that this is basically the First Class sequel, are all clear indicators that this is the new cast's franchise now. I wouldn't expect Cyclops or Jean back, Jackman (from what I know) has hinted that this could be it for him as Wolverine, Patrick and Ian aren't getting any younger, while McAvoy and Fassbender are still under contract, Jennifer is a star right now and still under contract.
It seems to me like we'll have 2 trilogies by the end of it, the main trilogy, and a First Class trilogy (X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, X-Men: First Class 3), along with 2 Wolverine movies, and any potential solo sequels, and then apparently we're getting X-Force which will be another spinoff of the universe. Also, if they ever move forward with Deadpool, there's a Deadpool spinoff waiting to be made as well.
That's a LOT of movies.
