Default Re: The film's continuity with the X-Men franchise

Where does this unholy fascination with the 70s come from? Setting FC in the 60s barely made sense, especially when the film ignored everything interesting and innovative from that decade and made everything generic and bland. But the 70s, the era of polyester and disco, were a vast cultural wasteland. The only explanation for it I can think of is that Fox's minions have given up on the idea of creating anything decent set in the present, so they're reaching back into the past in the hope that the age of room-sized computers and cathode ray tubes will be kinder to their low-tech offerings.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
