This is what has always worried me about Charles' role in DoFP. In other films, older Charles is essentially a non-action character. And since his powers make him almost a deus ex-machina, he's always knocked out or captured or dead so that his telepathy won't offer an easy and fast resolution for any conflict.

I don't know about him walking, though. I mean, I would love to see him taking part on the action, I just hope that if he's walking it won't be a simplistic resolution that puts aside the tragedy of dealing with his paralysis.

And yay I saw the poster for Filth in my local cinema yesterday!
And where do you live, if you don't mind me asking?

I'm so jealous of all of you who get to see Filth. James is my favorite actor ever and just thinking that I probably won't able to see what has been called his greatest performance in cinemas really hurts.
