I wish Psylocke wouldn't have been in the Movie. I mean come on, she did nothing and then she got demolecurized. They say they didn't include important mutants like Gambit because they thought he deserved more than a simpe cameo, yet they don't have a problem to simply screw another important mutants over big time.

I saw the film on Wednesday and fully concentrated on the scenes with Psylocke. When Phoenix started to demolecularize everyone and everything we see Arclight, Quill and Psylocke run away. We see the first two turn to ash, but Psylocke made it off camera before she died.

That either means that she COULD have lived, or she died and we didn't even get to see it onscreen.

It might have just been the screen I saw it on, or it could have just happened too quickly.

I'm no X-men expert, but did Psylocke have those chameleon like powers in the comics too? Because when I saw that I thought wtf?

She can manipulate your mind and create illusions.

The Crimson Dawn era I think (don't quote me on it) She had a stage where she teleported through shadows or something....like I said don't quote me on it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Psylocke in X3 was a waste of a popular character. I wish they saved her up in X4 instead...like Gambit.

Has anyone read this?

Quote:
How did you pick the mutants though, particularly the new characters with new powers?

Ratner: I just went through the comics and the materials and thought "this is cool"..they're what I thought was cool. Callisto and the sidekicks of Magneto, whoever I thought was a cool sidekick and I just wanted to go in and put some color into it. It's a multi-racial comic and I wanted to put some color to it. Halle Berry was the only person of color in the last few movies, so I wanted to bring some flavor, as they say.


But it seemed like a lot of them were actually created like the spikey guy, the Asian character..

Ratner: They were inspired by the comics. I took... for instance, Spike started as Kid Omega, but there was another character. I found one character that I liked and then I took the powers. For instance, Callisto has the power of another character who moves fast and has the telepathy thing. The girl from the wall looks like Psylocke but she has the power of one of the other characters. So I mixed and matched powers to service the story. Instead of having ten more actors in the movie, I just said, "You're going to have these three powers."

I never once bashed Ratner, I was always thinking stupid writers, stupid Fox. But right now I want to slap him.

In future sequels, could Betsy Braddock not appear?
I know she can't be called Psylocke, but if she's a caucasian brit then at least the fans will know who she is.
And if she uses her psychic knife (or even her telepathic/ telekinetic powers), then it won't confuse movie viewers who don't know much about her history.
For an explanation for fans, they could say that the woman who appeared in the movie was actually Kwannon (i know it said psylocke in the credits but...)
Ah. Maybe i'm just clutching at straws

...wtf? That's the stupidest thing I've heard of. If it was true,then who the hell was that "ashy guy" that "coal breath"? Who's the little kid with the paper airplanes?

Instead of having Psylocke blend into the wall,she could've been in a shadowy corner,light up her psy-blade,and then say her line. Jeezus. And maybe she didn't get ashed. I only saw Arclight and Quill get ashed.

Watch again, she didn't make it.

At first I couldn't understand why so many were against him directing, but now I see why and with decisions like this I don't blame them either.

Psylocke was pointless and the only real gripe I have about the story. Why change her powers? If they wanted to make her appear out of nowhere, she could already do that...why make her invisible woman all of a sudden?

She might not be in Wolverine and Storm's league but she's also a long time X-Man ranking above the likes of Quill and Arclight. I wouldn't even have cared if she hadn't made it into the film at all. What did
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
her death
after two scenes with a line each add to the film?

I was extremely disappointed in how Movie Psylocke was used. There was really no point in having her there at all. Reading that quote from Ratner just makes me shake my head.

He needs a better publilcist to prevent him making these kind of gaffes. Even if true, why would you admit it?

wait.....I haven't seen the movie yet. But, does Psy clearly get killed? Or, is it just implied?

I've heard conflicting reports. Some say that she is off screen, when the other mutants get demolecularized. While others say she is clearly ashed.

You could always wait till the film to find out but if you need to know now,
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
she gets demoleculariesed/ashed by Phoenix along with other Brotherhood members as she is running away. From memory the scene only lasted about a second but I'd need to see it again to be 100% confident that she was still on screen.
