Guys, remember, I left this board temporarily to assist on the Fantastic Four
hype board. I followed that production from start to finish. If you think such proposals are depressing now, you ain't seen nothing yet.
FOX truly knows how to make what works well not work at all. Right now I'm talking out of the side of my head, but after what they did to Dr. Doom's character (making a menage a twois between him, the Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic, among many other wrongs) I put nothing past them now. This is a very feasible reality.
Besides, Thom Rothman hates James Marsden and Bryan Singer from what I hear (for jumping ship to do Supes), so I am sure the vaporizing of Cykes has more to do with ego rather than plot. Anything is possible fellas.
