X3 Fanedit Project
With The Wolverine and Days Of Future Past, it's great to see the X-Men series finally picking up after The Last Stand. I've considered starting a fanedit for the bungled third entry for some time, and now seems like a good time to really start laying some ideas out. There's obviously a limit to what can be done, but I feel with the deleted footage available there are few changes that can be made to improve the experience.
I'm currently between computers so it will be a little while before I can really get started, but I thought it would be great to start a dialogue with other fans about ideas for improvement.
Some early ideas I have:
-Restore the Xavier V/O for continuity.
-Trim around Xavier walking in the prologue (obvious and easily do-able).
-Move Xavier funeral to the end of the film for a more satisfying closure, and to quicken the pace between his death and the finale.
-Use the alternate ending of Logan leaving the team to better tie the film into The Wolverine.
-Trim some of the more offensive lines (Juggernaught, I'm looking at you)
There's other things rattling around my head, but I'd love to hear the thoughts of you guys. XOW is basically a write-off to me, so I wouldn't object to using footage from that either, though I doubt there's much of use.
