Re: Should DOFP be used to reboot the X-Men franchise?
I don't know how reboot became an ugly word but most reboots are successful (Star Trek, Batman Begins, Casino Royale).
You have to reboot eventually. Actors age, salaries get unreasonable, and continuities get stale or screwed up (SM3, X3).
I think they should do two more movies with the First Class cast, an X-Force Trilogy, and another Wolverine movie. That should all be done by 2020, then reboot the franchise in six years (2026) with the original line up (Cyclops, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Beast and Angel).
