I'm not all that interested in this basically being X4, especially when its likely that Hugh will be shoved down our throats again, and especially since its highly unlikely that they'll have enough time to rectify certain mistakes from Last Stand
I think the focus will be on the FC group and that the original trilogy cast will be no more than extended cameos to show how bad the alternate future is.

Then why are only 4 first Class actors confirmed and with James Mcavoy slip we have about 8 OT actors In film.That's a lot for extended cameos.

Exactly.
Are they going to cram all those 8 (or more) actors together in 40-60 minutes and give the rest of space and focus to the First Class cast? I don' think so.

Or how about the more logical answer they're going to be new mutants on the '73 X-men to round out the new team?

The movie takes place 11 years after FC. Do the actors playing Havok and Banshee look 11 years older than FC?

I don't think so. Beast and Mystique are under make-up.

What sense would it make to announce a bunch of unknown actors playing New mutants?

They won't need to "cram" any of these characters/actors. 40-60 minutes sounds about right assuming only 2 or 3 of the returnees actually have significant parts to play. IMO there will be some set up/catch up and then a fast paced action tempo as far as the future sequences go=less screen time. The story will slow down and begin to build up for the past sequences IMO=more screen time. I'd be shocked if Singer gave us the reverse of that. Fassbender, MaCavoy, Lawrence, and '73 will get the lion's share IMO.

Nope.

Though I do think James/Michael will have a bigger role than Ian/Patrick since they just appeared in First Class.

And about the Nightcrawler, I'm happy he's not included in the movie. He just can't instantly comeback there with the team. There should be a big reason on why he should return and with a lot of things already happening in DOFP, I don't think this is the right time.

Why not? He's already an X-Men, you don't need to explain something like that. All mutants are being hunted. Who would you help and want go to? Probably the X-Men.

All X Men are disbanded in The Wolverine anyways and thats probably the same case at the end of the film. So technically everyone will have been gone when we walk in the theatre.

Nope. Just because he worked with the X-Men in X2, it doesn't instantly make him a X-Men. He didn't appear in X3 and its lazy just to bring him back in DOFP as a member of the X-Men right away.

What does the amount if characters have to do with importance?

Notice so far we've only heard of McAvoy, Lawrence, and Hoult getting the script, while the OT cast have only "read a treatment" or "heard talks about" their roles.

I just don't understand how we can CONSTANTLY get quotes and details that prove how important and essential McAvoy and Fassbender are and people will continue to believe the contrary.

I think it's a mixture of rumors certain FC cast members are not returning, those bs rumors on screentime arguments, a large future cast with A listers being hyped, people would rather see the future cast, and no hype has been brought on for the FC cast.

No doubt the 73 stuff will play an important role and Xavier/ Mags will be the focus. That seems confirmed. It does look like there may be longer future scenes then everyone thought. Who knows really. I think once more FC actors are announced that will probably switch opinions again.

I really liked FC overall But I'm one person who is much more interested in the OT cast/characters&scenes,I would totally be pleased IF this is more X-Men 4 than FC 2,Would be into FC more IF it was a compete reboot than a prequel.

However..I liked FC enough that I'd also be fine IF the FC stuff is a focus and the future stuff are glorified cameos.

Noone Is saying Mcavoy and Fassbender aren't Important and Essential to film.If 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes of 2 hours(not counting credits) are In 1973 and only 30 to 40 Minutes In future why are only Lawrence and Holt announced as coming back from first Class.Dinklage Is probally In that part of film,and It's possable Sy Is as well.That still leaves more set for future than past.I used to think they were just waiting to announce more first Class actors but at this point you have to wonder If there are anymore coming back why aren't they announced or someone slips up and says something.

As for those who just well they will just bring In teenage Cyclops,Jean,and storm they are forgetting Singer's I am respecting all films comments.

Which details?
So far I have seen Digital Spy talking about the importance of Magneto, Singer ellaborating a bit and that was it.

I don't know why you're always trying to force people to believe they are wrong or how stupid they are when they have doubts about certain issues. There is nothing clear and defined about the movie so far, unless you've read the script and you know something we don't know.

Well for one, you've spent the last few years doing nothing but complain about First Class and how underused poor James was, so I don't understand how you suddenly love and care about the FC characters. But that's neither here nor there...


But what I just don't understand is why when we constantly hear something about the FC stuff in this film, people ignore it. When we hear the slightest thing about the OT people scream and cry.

But there will most certainly be more than 4 principals from FC, right? I think people are focusing on the big actors' names. For example, are characters like Angel or Azazel going to return? Moira?

Singer himself already confirmed a while back that there were still announcements that were going to be made in regards to the First Class team because common sense would tell you that there's no way it's only going to be Prof. X & Beast vs. Magneto and Mystique in the 70's.

That would just be silly.

Of course not.That still doesn't change the fact that we are a few weeks away from filming and yet only 4 first Class actors are confirmed.With exception of Peter Dinklage and Omar Sy(depending on who he Is playing) all the announcments have been on OT returnes after the first announcements.
After awhile you have to wonder why that Is.having a bunch of new faces for a crossover event doesn't seem likely If they are trying to copy the avengers.
