Default Re: X-Men: Apocalypse coming in 2016!

I'm really trying to not speculate too much on the plot/cast until after Days of Future Past, but it's hard not to. The timeline is definitely all screwed up, but I don't really care. I mean, First Class takes place 40 years before X-Men, yet mutants seemed like a relatively "new" threat, and the X-Men didn't seem all that familiar with Magneto to start that one, even though it looks like he has been a pretty big deal for 40 years leading up to that movie.

I think that's part of the problem with making prequels as opposed to just a reboot. Unless there is some timey wimey stuff going on, it's hard to believe the X-Men faced threats like Sentinels and especially Apocalypse leading decades before X-Men.

However, like I said, I really don't care if the timeline doesn't make all that much sense. Just give me good, fun movies and I will be happy.

This is my signature.
