Default Should DOFP be used to reboot the X-Men franchise?

Maybe Fox should try to reboot the franchise in a manner no one has ever created before.

Patrick Stewart/Ian McKellen are quite old and they can't play the roles of Xavier/Magneto anymore.The trilogy and Wolverine dual movies are riddled with errors and time confusion that can't be ignored for the sake of future movies.Fassbender has been fantastic as Magneto and so is James McAvoy as well.They are quite young and can play the roles of Magneto/Xavier for a long time as well.


Wolverine will prevent the assassination and will thus create an alternate future from 1973.So should that be used to create a reboot for the X-Men franchise?

I think Yes.This means new movies can be made and the mistakes of the past can be rectified.First Class will chronologically be the first movie to take place and the events of X-Men 1,2 and 3 will cease to exist.

This is what I like to see in the Post Credits Scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past:

Prof. Charles Xavier(James McAvoy) has seen the visions of the apocalyptic future and decides to build a team that will safeguard and protect the interests of both mutants and humans alike.Xavier believes the events of DOFP are too powerful for a human mind and also it isn't morally right for a person to know about the future.He thus erases the events of DOFP from the minds of Magneto and Mystique.The only other person who will remember the events of DOFP is a super intelligent Hank McCoy and he makes Beast the first member of his X-Men.Beast becomes sorta of advisor/friend to Xavier just like the beloved Animated Series

In DOFP Wolverine will change events in the past, so it could affect on entire future. So the events from X-men trilogy and even Origins never could happen.
In that case we will have rebooted/alternate version of X-men universe.

^That's exactly what I want it to happen.Superman/Spiderman/Batman have all had reboots and X-Men needs it too.Instead of the normal way with reboots,they can use the alternate timeline to create the reboot.They could also give a reason why the X-Men were created.Charles Xavier wants to create peace between mutants-humans and prevent the apocalyptic vision that he had visualised in the future.

Stop reboots,please.The wonderful thing about this franchise is the continuity.At present both reboot is disgusting.

The original cast is wonderful,they must continue.

I wouldn't call it reboot, it's just new timeline since 1973. It doesn't erase what was before 1973 and we saw it in earlier movies.

Phrasing it this way is most agreeable! The problem with a traditional reboot is that it's starting from a place that wipes clean the events before it. In this instance we get a chance to start anew with new faces but at the same time we are not ignoring what happened beforehand. This is really the best of both worlds. And like you smartly point out nothing is erased and our previous emotional investments remain relevant and part of the movieverse.

so newtime line with new characters and a new start but not a reboot...lol

Stewart and McKellen are too old to continue as Xavier and Magneto.Cyclops and Jean Grey are integral parts and they are dead

Too tough to make future movies

I'm not interested in watching new start, just another timeline with different villains like Apocalypse, Sinister and Shadow King. Jean and Cyclops will be alive in new timeline.

Agree it changes eveything, but don't know if this change date of someone birth. So if someone is too young he won't be in team earlier in different timeline. I'm not interested in watch it again, just show me new reality, they fighting with somone else. Team can have different roster, but they don't have to show begin of it once again.

No to reboots, no to "erasing" past movies.

This franchise is so long in need of an reboot/overhaul that I'll take anything that comes close at this point(they missed a golden opportunity with XM:FC). So that's a yes for me.

My reaction to this Is

If they would have listened to some we wouldn't be getting the epic film
that Is DOFP.

Some here complained Magneto Is In every film now complaning on Ian
Mckellen being too old

X-men Is third longest running franchise now since reboot craze hit.

This obsession fans have with reboots is annoying. Let them finish telling the journey they already started. A reboot is not needed.

And it is definitely not happening so I'm not sure why some fans keep going on about it. They intend to use these casts and versions of the characters again in sequels. That's how it's going to be.

Worse is when I see fanboys casting for those reboots.
Can't stop facepalming after seeing which actor they choose for each character.

I know. I've seen massive posts from fanboys detailing which actors and actresses they'd use. And most are awful choices anyway

People are obsessed with reboots these days. There's no patience left to let a franchise build the stories and finish them.

Even though i'm happy with how the franchise is going right now i will say i can understand some of the want for a reboot, quite alot of characters could have been used better and not just thrown in to be silent enemies or pure fan service (juggernaut, Multiple Man)

its becoming abit of a thing this film series allows directors to grab hand fulls of mutants and just throw them in for 1 or 2 scene and not to explore who they are

i don't think there will be a reboot for a while though, i think Fox will wanna keep jackman for as long as possible

I wouldn't mind a slight retcon with the First Class timeline continuing the events, but not a straight reboot.

And this is what I think is gonna happen.

Some details will be retconned, and there will be some noticeable, but overlookable inconsistencies, but there will be no wholesale reboots or erasures of continuity.

I wish the term retcon was a poll option.

That's exactly what's needed to allow the First Class timeline to flourish for another 2 or 3 movies.

Yeah seriously. People are getting so bent out of shape just because of the word "reboot." Retool, revamp, rejoice. WTF does the word matter? Ignore the word and read the OP's post. It's not a bad plan whatsoever. It's very "X-Men" and it has nothing to do with completely ignoring what was done in the past. It's merely creating a new timeline. Sounds like X-Men to me.

I think Singer's Wolver-centric vision has been played out and several classic Xmen arcs have suffered because of it.

The Dark Phoenix Saga was a travesty and it appears DOFP is getting the same treatment.

As fan of both these arcs, I would rather this particular franchise would die out.

I know it isn't likely to happen under Fox as long they remain profitable but I feel like the current franchise is simply a Fox cash cow powered by the misguided Singer and the charisma of Jackman.

You Forget Singer didn't direct X-Men 3, his ideas for that film were actually quite awesome and it would have been shot back-to-back with an X-men 4, which would have either been a continuation of the Phoenix saga or been the final battle. The only storyarc besides this one Singe adapted was "God Loves, Man Kills" for X-Men 2, and we all know that one turned out very good, he has also shown interest in Days of Future past for a long while, so it's obvious he's gonna try to respect the story as much as he can.

Bryan Singer is no more misguided than Marvel Studios themselves.
