Default Re: Does this movie have too many characters?

The thing is that fans get frustrated when favourite characters get tiny roles, especially where they seem to be wasted or in pointless fan-pleasing cameos.

It's notable that neither Avengers or The Dark Knight went down that road. They picked their main characters and stuck to them. Like it or not, those two films are going to be the standards against which superhero movies will be judged from now on.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
