I thought we were going to get the emerging from shadows trick instead of the psi-blades. Emerging from broad daylight just isn't quite so cool.


& Honourable deaths are a rarity in this film.

That was her latent 'merging with walls' ability... far less popular compared to her FREAKIN' SIGNATURE PSI-BLADES!!!

Don't get me wrong, this movie rocked! But they wasted Psylocke totally!

Even Drake's brother got more lines and action. At least a lot of the other negative things in X3 had reasons behind them. This doesn't.

I'd still mind but at least we'd have something to remember her by.

Either that or those scenes were cut.

i mean even the spikey boy had more lines than psylocke and his powers arent even remotely interesting. What they should have done is when they captured warrens father the spike boy and arclight should have held him while psylocke created her psionic knife attempting to slice off his head only for warren to come sweeping through and perhaps knock her out aswell as arclight and spike boy and rescue his father. that scene alone would have amped betsy and warrens cool factor by 5%.

Was there a response? can you send me the link of the thread at Xverse?

I really don't think Mei is a lier. Actors can hardly tell what's in or what is not in the final cut of a movie. I believe this is the case.

I haven't checked recently for a response. That's the thread for post movie questions aimed at either Zak or Simon but they both have individual question threads as well.

That would certainly have been an improvement.

That doesn't mean it wasn't filmed, it just didn't make the final cut.

There are always scenes that don't end up in the theatrical version.

I know this has been talked about alot in here, but I didn't see Psy die. And I was looking for her too, cause I heard conflicting reports about it, too. All I saw was Archlight and Quill shatter.

But if there's an X4, I think she'll be in it. And I also think that she be an active x-men. But if I were you I would expect anything on the whole Revenche, body swithcing, being brittish thing.

And that blows. I always thought that was one of the coolest stories as a kid.

Yeah, I didn't notice her evaporate the first time I seen the film, and when I saw it today I was looking specfically at her to see if I could catch it, and I'm nearly 100% that she was not in frame at the time and the only ones shown demolecularizing where Archelight and Quill.

It was one of the coolest stories (although some hated it). I don't think it should ever make it's way in to an X-Men film though. I'm not asking for much but if you put her in, ler her survive and maybe try a few nifty moves, she doesn't even need a large part or many lines.

This is up to interpretation, but there is a possibility that she could still be alive. If you watch the scene again. The camera pans away from her and just showed Quill and Arclight. She could have easily disappear into the shadows. I know it's just a thought like the movie not showing Cyclop dying.

What do you guys think?

so.....it seems that they didn't clearly show Psy or Cyclops dying on screen.....leaving the possibility open they might still be alive.

I haven't seen the movie yet. But, I want to be on the lookout for that scene.

Which scene should I be watching for?
