The only thing I think might be questionable regarding Grammer's inclusion is the visual difference between the two Beasts. Plus, they may want to save money and simply age Hoult via make-up, since he's already under cover, rather than pay Grammer. Though, for fans of Grammer's Beast, it would be a nice tie-in.

However since Vaughn likes the more cat like Beast doudtful they would have him In future sequenze. In part due to avoid talk of beast different appearance.If Beast Is In future more likely they would age up Nicholas Holt In catlike Beast makeup.

I'd like to see Wolverine, Storm, and Beast return. With Beast there's an opportunity to explain that he will undergo a subsequent mutation or mutations that make him appear the way he does in X3.

Yeah Beast was the best addition to X3 and he didn't really have flaws compare to the other characters who were in X3. I didn't like Ellen Page as Shadowcat, I thought she was annoying in the movie.

If they do use characters from the previous franchise, why does it have to involve time travel? In fact, I can tell you right now it probably wont. Expect some mystery-adventure style plot following clues from destiny's diaries, while scenes of the future and the past are intercut. While the x-men in the past are figuring stuff out, the consequences lead to events unfolding in the future. It keeps the spirit of the comic, while also doing away with the time travel aspect, which wont carry over well to film if you ask me. Also, see Senator Kelly replaced with the Kennedy assassination, ala the Cuban Missile Crisis.

At least that's what I think.

It's a possibility that has crossed my mind too. Having the future be the precognitive visions of someone (Destiny, Bishop) is one way round it, except how do they know those predictions are real and not just some lunatic's insane ramblings?

If they do tackle time travel in this then please please please give us Scott Summers back.

Not only would I much prefer this, but time travel isn't even featured (heavily) in the original comic. It wasn't until the 90's cartoon where they introduced a mutant traveling back in time.

As for Ellen, I would love her return, but I don't think it's necessary or even services this story. Plus Ellen hated her experience on X3, so unless she's woo'd by Vaughn and Singer (and a great script) I don't see her wanting to come back.

I completely agree and have been thinking this would be the format as well, bypassing time travel for something a little easier to swallow.

I mentioned this in another thread, but they could easily use it as a way to introduce young Jean Grey to the movie. Have her be the conduit to which the vision comes through, maybe as an side effect of her powers awakening/activating.

Time travel just opens up too many unnecessary doors and questions that may be too big to answer in just one simple movie.

Time Travel of some kind Is a must.I really don't see them cutting back and forth between Time Peroids.If they don't have an opeing prologue sequenze set In future they will have an extended flashback/Flashforward sequenze.

I always thought back after Lauren SHueller Donner mentioned X4/X5 that If they did Days of future Past there was more chance of having Rogue fill Kitty's role In storyline.
In a lot of ways Rogue In earlier films filled the void of Kitty.Plus Anna Paqun Is far more willing to return to series than Ellen Page.Her baby Is due In November and then It woud be question could they make her schedule with True Blood work.

I hope none of the old cast members come back. Berry sucked, we've gotten more than enough of Jackman as Wolverine and I don't want to see McKellen as Magneto now that Fassbender blew him out of the water. They need to focus on the current First Class characters.

I don't get this ridiculous wanting of an X-men 4.

I dream of the day we get an X-Men team with:
Cyclops
Jean Grey
Wolverine
Storm
Colossus
Nightcrawler
Shadowcat

This is the team I started reading X-Men with.

Hardly.


But how do you do DoFP without characters from... um.. the future?

Well lets see how much they delve into the future in this next movie. They might not even go that far, they could just use the sentinels for all we know. I just want to see some of the First Class cast get more screentime and development.

They are going to use original film actors.Plus Imagen the shock of seeing them killed by Sentinles onscreen.Imagne after being free of collor Magneto sacirfices himself using powers against army of sentinles while others ecape.And assuming Wolverine Isn't the time traveler seeing him In action against Sentinles ending with him being vaporized.

On another board a poster suggested wolverine,Kitty,and CGI Iceman In Iceform and CGI Collossus In full metal form(Like In X2 and not cheap one from Last Stand) as returing characters.And suggested Kitty going back In time with Bishop.Of course who knows If they could get Ellen Page Back.And the have to have Patrick Stewart and Ian
Mckellan In film.They need to have a couple of characters In both time frames.

Eh, he was only hammy at times in X3 "WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?". But since I choose not to acknowledge that film, his performance remains legendary.
