Thats like....pedophilia.

They have more of a father/daughter...Wolverine is protective over her...for him to just touch her leg or anything would just....*shivers*

Plus, Rogue has Bobby...and Gambit might come into the picture so she is sorted.

Wolverine and Storm is more realistic, purley because they are adults.

I'd like to start with saying a little something about Bryan Singer and everyone's rage about him changing the character up. Bryan was an amazing director folks, if he wasn't, we wouldnt even be here debating anything. We wouldnt care what happens next. He may not have been the biggest fan of the Xmen prior to his work on the films, but how is that a bad thing? Translating comics to films is not easy, and it can't be literally translated, otherwise it would be a big joke. That's why comics are comics (to be read and viewed) and Movies are movies. I enjoyed the fact that it was a director that could appreciate the darker, more serious tones of the idea of Xmen, rather than letting his knowledge and opinions of the book sway his judgments. Singer was fantastic, and If he could develop every other character pretty decently, why is it that Storm was so lack-luster? Maybe Ms.Berry cannot necessarily give across the energy and spirit of Storm. I've come to terms with it, they corrected her X1 flaws and dealt with their actress in the best ways they could. She wasn't terrible in X2. At least she lost that accent.

As for the whole "ROLO" thing, I agree with most when I say that it does seem like a cheap way for them to use Halle more and give her the ability to display the chemistry that she and Hugh had on Swordfish. But I never got the slightest hints that Storm and Logan would EVER be attracted to one another. I feel it also cheapens Wolverine somewhat. I feel as though the next film could have had a very impactful energy about it with Jean's return. Much like the comics where He of all people, has such a difficulty fighting Jeanie. Regardless to some opinions that Jean came across not loving Logan in the movies. I must say that i feel she did. I feel as though Jean just had a sense of unsurity when it came to logan due to his constant departures and lack of stability. Her allowing of the kiss was an example, and the twinkle in her eyes was another. Famke displayed this very well and look at her in the films, she is torn completley. This is why Scott seems so threatened. BUT, now with Storm and Wolvie together, it seems as though Logan takes any lady he can get.

And overall, I think the idea is just plain annoying. But there's nothing we can do, but wait and see how it comes across.. They might just surprise us all..

-Laz
Wow, nice post Laz.

I agree with much of what you said above. Personally, I'll be content with this ROLO thing if it's handled one of two ways:

1.) The ROLO factor is actually established in this film i.e. the attraction between Storm and Logan BEGINS in this film and develops slowly throughout X3, leaving the door open to a greater relationship in future installments,

or (and ONLY or)

2.) A long period of time (as in YEARS) has elapsed since Jean drowned, and Storm has become an instrumental friend in helping her surviving teammates Scott and especially Logan cope with their loss. THEN it would make more sense for the movie to pick up with them already being in a relationship. But that prior "bonding" has to be laid out clearly so audiences will know what's going on.

Cat fight!!! Cat fight!!!
Then Storm causes a rainstrorm, but Phoenix tackles her and they both slam into a huge mud pit below, where their fighting continues. Best picture of the year, hands down.

I think that time lapse would be best because Wolverine has shown no serious feelings for Storm in the last two films (and likewise). We don't even know if this is gonna be included in the film...I say, let's just wait and see.

I'd like to see Logan and Storm having a very close friendship, but not a romance. I don't get why we never saw those two interact in the last 2 movies.

They had a little in X1.

S: "Where are you going?"

W: "To find her."

S: "Logan, you can't do this alone!"

W: "Are you going to help me? So far you guys have done a bang-up job."

S: "Then join us! Fight with us!"

W: "You mean join the "team"? Become an X-Man? There are people out there who fear and hate you and you're wasting your time protecting them? Magneto's right, there's a war coming. Are you sure you're on the right side?"

S: "At least I've chosen a side beeyotch."

This is where Singer really handicapped Storm's cinematic personna--he hasn't built any kind of foundation whatsoever for her..
I guess most I gauge from the internet fan sites. Count how many people, mostly women, who like whcih relationships. People CAN get very stuck in their ways, like me.

I guess as an example, think of Buffy. TONS of Buffy/Angel fans... then Angel left and they TRIED to give her a new boyfriend, Joss realy liked Riley and wante dhim to be Buffy's boyfriend and for them to be a nice couple, but the fans wouldn't stop *****ing and *****ing and *****ing... so he got rid of it, because there were too many people that had liked The Buffy/Angel.

Now, I'm not sure why Spike/Buffy caught on so well but, methinks it's do to the fact that the core cople of Buffy/Angel had already been borken up for two seasons and the people were finally ready to except the fact that Buffy and Angel weren't getting back together.

I know that's only one example. But what I'm saying is it's hard to go from one estabished relationship to another without people getting bitter.

How many famous couple, after they break up the next one doesn't last and the public hates it? *oh I ment famous FAKE character couples.*

TA!

There's no reflection of the Emma, Scott, Jean triangle with Jean, Storm, and Wolverine at all. Jean and Scott were married! In the movies all Jean and Wolverine had was at best an IMMATURE attraction to each other. They never had a REAL relationship![/QUOTE]

Maybe not but that had a means ass romantic one in the AOA Weapon X series... and they did scew a bit in Ultimate. True AU AU...

But I feel since they've more or less have Scott with Emma now, methinks they may Have a Wolverine/Jean whenever she comes back. Could be interesting.
