So what you're saying is that from the end of X-Men to the beginning of X2, it took Wolverine (a native Canadian) two-three years to FIND (not explore and study deeply, just to arrive at) Alkali Lake before returning home? We saw in X3 that it took Cyclops a few hours to do that by motorcycle, so we know that it's not so deeply secluded and hidden that Logan would have a hard time to find it - it's right off a public road, it looks like, so it's pretty much out in the open, just not open for the public.

All three X-Men movies were set in 2006, with the final events of X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) being set in 1989 (17 years before X-Men).
I don't think they specifically tried to put a time setting on these films, so they just kept it vague with "not too distant future".

Didn't they say something on the X2 costume featurette about not using fashion trends as they didn't want to date the film or give it a time stamp or something like that.

I think X3 was set in the present day though, bearing in mind it went back to both Jean and Warren's childhoods.

It's reasonable to assume that the X-Men movies all took place around 2006...I mean, it can't be too far into the future if you're still believing that Magneto was a young teen during 1944.

If x-men first class is actually connected to x-men 1, 2, and 3. I can't see angel in it, since they screwed his character up in x-3.

but if this movie is not connected, bring on angel and iceman then!

But Iceman would still be there and have to be like 11 years old...

They should do their best with what they have...

Well, yeah, but why focus on just him?

I think he was 12 or 13 in the Ultimate universe when he first started, so that could possibly work out, though I doubt he's supposed to be any older than 20 in X3, so the timing wouldn't really work.

I wouldn't expect to see Bobby/Iceman in this movie, he wouldn't even have been alive when Charles and Erik were young.

Well, most of the other X-Men probably wouldn't been alive either at the time Charles and Erik were "young""..

Forget continuity. why do we have to have "continuity"..?

It's like a white lie.. you know how you tell a lie and then that lie leads to another lie which leads to another lie, etc..? When you create a pointless cameo in a movie then you have to justify that cameo in future films and then continue to deviate further every time the character is shown...

I'm just saying... Look at the James Bond films. None of those are in continuity... sure, there were a few bad films in the mix but no one ever questioned why a villain who was killed in the early films was later reintroduced... why M suddenly became a female and why the gadgets got more technologically advanced in the prequels...

One of the reasons I could never get into the newer Hulk film was due to the reboot of the origin shown in the credits... there was absolutely no reason to rewrite what was done previously; it didn't take away or add to the story in any way... just let sleeping dogs lie. There is absolutely no reason to go and try to explain every little mistake that was made in the past.

Why can't we just make a new movie without the restrictions that a previous director put in the film?

Put Angel and Iceman in... and do 'em correctly this time... Shoot...

All the X-Men movies take place in only a couple months time.

Where did 3 years between X-Men 2 and 3 come from? It was confirmed to be only a month or 2 a long time ago.

That's my concern too. I haven't read alot of spoiler information about First Class, but if they are supposed to be in line with the original trilogy...some of the characters wouldn't even be alive yet.
