I guess it's possible, but two brothers? Roughly 23 years apart?
my oldest sister and i are almost 22 years apart. it's possible, but i don't really like that idea

i have NEVER seen that trailer until just now.

i seem to remember looking in the credits to see if she was listed as Emma or Emma Frost. I believe it's just Emma. But I do know that one of the doctors in Weapon X is given the surname Frost in XM

I'm going to suggest again that Xavier and Magneto won't neccessarily have their climactic confrontation in the 60's, and that this movie will span several decades.

The use of Three Mile Island in WOLVERINE has me wondering...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
More to the point, given that possibility, aside from the Civil Rights Movement, which historical event or era spans from the 60's, indeed, from about just after WWII, to the era the X-Men we know and love would have began in this franchise, the late 80's and early 90's?

While the continuity for these films must be blissfully ignored in the hope of enjoying them more fully, I'm not gonna let it bother me in this one. The way I'm looking at it, we're getting an X-Men film set in the most compelling decade of the last century (the 1960's) with intent to make analogous connections to Xavier to MLK and Magneto to Malcolm X. And the fact that it is the first comic book film that is set in the Silver-Age of comics, the era when many of them were created, also is enticing. This is how these films should have began. I'm going into this film looking at it as more of a stand-alone and look forward to (hopefully) getting something I LOVE about the comics that I've missed in every previous attempt, Political Relevancy!!!

I definitely don't wanna see this spinoff film. It seems like all their doing is ignoring things about the previous x-men films. I'm definitely not gonna let any misleading promos or trailers convince me to watch it (just like the last two movies) either. I also believe this could be a flop in the making due to lack of popular characters and all these other anticipated films surrounding it.

So you're complaining about them ignoring things from the last two films and you didn't even like the last two films in the first place?

I just find it wrong to go out of continuity.

I find it wrong to focus too much on keeping continuity with bad movies instead of making a good movie.

Not to mention X3 and Wolverine already made a mess out of the continuity so ignoring them would only fix it in my eyes.

^ This.

The continuity issues seem minor and are there for a reason.

I don't understand why people automatically assume things, then start *****ing about them... just because it's the same characters, doesnt automatically mean it'll has to be a linear timeline between any movie involving those characters.
Movies are prone to remakes, relaunches, multiple films by multiple makers over decades.
It's like trying to figure out how the story from EVERY movie ever made on Jesus Christ fits into the timeline of the story that we know... or trying to find continuity in EVERY vampire movie ever made.

It could a totally different continuity, might not even be canon, as majority of comic book adaptations are.
How about we watch, then whine?

Personally, I think they should scrap the previous X-Men movies seeing how it was before Marvel pre-Avengers-style movie-verse continuity.

With this new concept, they can take a step back, and create movies with a larger grand picture in mind and create a new continuity instead of having to be restraint by trying to fit their universe into the previous incarnations.

Best reason to ignore all (if not just the last two) X-men titled movies.
