This film will be "too big" the same way Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter are "too big".

Im not sure what do you mean with "too big"... I guess do you mean too much stuff going on for Singer to make it all work.

If thats the case, Im sure he will deliver.

But since some months ago Ive been having the feeling that this movie wont look as Big and epic as it could be, having all those powerfull mutants fighting the sentinels.

After all these years, Ive seen other directors and studios doing really big and impressive things in terms of action, sets and all of that, and taking into account the old school style of Bryan Singer, as he has said himself, Im having my doubts.

And to add an example, I doubt Singer does something as epic as Superman fights and flying scenes on Man of Steel with Storm and Rogue.

I doubt he puts too much effort and attention on their action momments, in terms of complex shoots and big scale action.

If he and his crew end surprising me in a big way, I will be soo happy with it, but until the trailers show me the visual scale of the movie, I guess Ill keep having my doubts.

The scope of the film is awesome. The only issue I see is with the numerous fan favs in this film. Everyone will want their favorite characters properly developed but unless your favs are Wolverine, Prof X, Magneto, Beast or Mystique you will probably be let down in that area. Could be wrong, but I have a strong feeling they will be the ones focused on.

I don't want anything In this film that resembles Man of steel.

I have tried to stress this to others but It needs to be said again.People are wanting rogue to morph Into the 1990's animated version of Rogue.Rogue In this film has to be an evolution of the rogue of X-Men and X2.Wolverine and the X-Men proved you can make Rogue active without having to have her absorb the MS Marvel powers.

Halle Berry Is Pregnent.Anything action with storm Is mostly going to be her stunt double and CGI.

If action were all that Is required to make a good film then Last Stand would be called the best of X-Men films.

I have little doudt there will be good action In this film.The main concern should be story and characters.That Is what will make or break film.

Instead of trying to copy man of steel I want them to use the CGI budget to bring the sentinles to life.That's more important than trying to copy man of steel's superman effects with Storm and Rogue.

Meh, If Rogue ****ed **** up like Faora in MOS I would not complain at all. She was awesome and stole the film imo.

If that's the standard we're setting for action sequences then no thanks. That fight between the two characters looked like a video game sequence, and considering the amount of embarrassingly bad and in-your-face product placement in that film I would've figured they could've at least made the cg more convincing.

Faora was sooooo badass!!

I wasnt expecting a fight like that between those two (well, those three, lol)

I was really impressed with how powerfull and well choreographed the fights were on the movie. It was intense.

The thing with the X-Men or Singer's X-Men is that many of them arent trained. So.... that create too many limits.

specially with movie characters like Rogue, Iceman, Kitty....

They are 30 years old mutants now, so the movie should really show her age and skills like no other movie before.

Considering Nightcrawler's White House attack, Lady Deathstrike Vs. Wolverine, Mystique's assault on Stryker's base among others are still talked about among fanboys to this day, I don't get the complaint that Singer can't shoot action.

I wasn't too fond of Man of steel.I have seen a lot of Superman adaptians over the years in film,TV,and animation and It defently Isn't one of my favorates.

I don't want them to try to copy Man of steel.

Besides they should be using the CGI more to create the future and to bring the sentinles to life convincly.

I am sure there will be some wow moments.But,they don't need to copy Man of steel to do It.

Agree 100 percent.Plus he has more money to spent on film with reports of a 200 Million dollor budget.

I can watch Nightcrawler's attack on the White House and Wolverine vs. Lady Deathstrike all day.

Plus I thought the fight between Wolverine and Mystique in X1 was pretty good. The fight between Wolvlerine and Sabertooth isn't bad either

My only worry is that a lot of these characters are going to get limited screen time. I don't think having this many characters is going to destroy the film, but that was the biggest complaint about First Class. Some of the characters didn't get enough development.

I have a feeling those actors that will probably be playing mutants we haven't seen in the films before are going to be glorified cameos.

I won't mind as long as they have some involvement in some action scenes. Hopefully they'll actually do more than those lame ass characters in X3. That spiky guy, the girl who shoots **** and looks like a man, and the one that they decided to call Psylocke for whatever reason.

All the better. Warpath, Blink and Sunspot have never been big players in the X-Universe. And Bishop has never piqued my interest. If he ends up dead, along with Warpath, Blink and Sunspot, I wouldn't mind.

Others would, and that's no reason to start wasting more characters when they have potential. They have had their time and place in the comics. Especially if you have read Exiles, X-Force, AOA or New Mutants.

Well most of characters will probally end up dead In future with sentinles during the film.

Bishop I suspect will be most proment of new mutants In future.
