I don't count the two prequels because they screwed with the continuity too much.

I don't think XMOW screwed anything up. It was after XFC that things got iffy, continuity-wise. And even then, after X-DoFP, XFC will be more canon than the other movies.

Well, Origins Wolverine screwed with the how of Logan's transformation and the how of how he lost his memory. It's implied heavy in the flashbacks in X-Men and X2 that he lost his memory during the procedure not from the damn adamantium bullet. That's just the big stuff. There's other small things.

And yes, after Days of Future Past, I know First Class is in continuity but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that once Days of Future Past is released, we may not even have a need to watch First Class as well.

This is just a guess on my part but essentially, Days of Future Past is X-Men 4. Just based on the post credit sequence of the Wolverine, we're getting X-Men 4 that just happens to take place majority in the past where we get to see the major players in their younger form. Again, I don't know, but we'll see where those younger characters are at at the beginning of the film to see how everything will fit together.

But, at the end of the day, the end of Days of Future Past will create a cohesive timeline for moving forward with the X-Men franchise. That's the purpose of the film, get everything straight and exampled so that, moving forward, they can do all types of X-Men films.

That's why the film is being touted as this big event. It's meant to straighten out everything...which it can never really do.

I'm thinking everything post the 70s part of X-DoFP is gone. Which makes XFC and a part of X-DoFP canon.

Also, heavily implied is not the same as told. Technically, XMOW went out of its way to make things stick with the trilogy. So, I must disagree.

Still, TW made it pretty clear that every film is in continuity. Not that I'd presume to tell you which movies you should consider canon or not.

Yeah, Days of Future Past is going to make everything tricky. If I understand the producers right, if the film is a massive hit with the fans and makes bank at the box office, the idea is to do a sequel with the First Class cast and then do a sequel with the original cast...so two different X-Men films going on. The question is whether or not those two different time periods with the two different casts are part of the same timeline or are separate timelines all together.

It's just all going to be very weird, in my estimation.

Origins Wolverine, like First Class, got half the details right and then half the details completely wrong in terms of how it lines up to what was shown and told in X-Men and X2. On top of that, it's just a terrible film. Hence the reason I don't particularly care to make it part of canon, even though I know it is.

It's just frustrating that the original trilogy set everything the way it should be and the two prequels went out of their way to contradict portions of the original trilogy. At least with the Wolverine, that film made the great decision to just not reference the prequels all that much, if at all. It only takes it cue from X-Men The Last Stand. And with the way that it ends, minus the post credit sequence, it's a fitting finale to the Logan saga, considering the original trilogy is all about Logan.

That's what Days of Future Past is for, X-Men: First Class is still a great film, even with the inconsisties it has to the saga, definitely a better film that The Man of Steel

First Class was relativelly well received, with over 80%, it desserves the criticismo, botht the good and the bad.

Looks like I'm the only person who picked X-men 1

I love X-men 1, 2 and First Class.

The Last Stand is horrible.

Origins and Wolverine are alright...

The mere fact that so many fans are placing The Wolverine and First Class as first, second or third in ranking the X-Men films in a monumental accomplishment from a studio that truly s**t the bed with this franchise just a short time ago. It's a very impressive indication of Fox's newfound outlook of their X-Men properties.
