Default Should X-Men be split in two?

Mixed reactions on a all Female X-Men team but what about a Blue & Gold team in the FC universe?





Continuing with X-Men and then a second series Uncanny/Astonishing X-Men.

Yes, yes, yes and yes!

They cannot make the same mistake they did in The Last Stand, but you can't really leave important characters out. Spliting into two movies is the best way to work all those characters. 6 in each movie is a good number. That way everyone could be properly introduced and developed and no one would be waste like Colossus, Kitty, Iceman, Rogue, Nightcrawler, Storm, Scott and others.

Then you could reunite them in an event movies, Avengers-style.

Splitting the X-Men team into two teams (1 that stays in the mansion and 1 that flies accross the globe) would be cool!

It depends on the plot, the franchise doesn't have enough good will yet, the next films need to keep being astounding.

Splitting the team in two creates good will. There's 50+ cool X-Men we can keep getting the same 5 every movie. Take advantage of the super powers female characters.

Missed the true purpose of the thread, i thought you were talking about spliting the film into a two parter.

As long as the split in teams is well used, i'm all for it, i wouldn't mind 2 film series, one following the First Class timeframe, and another following the not so distant future, but if we know the future, the past gets a bit less interesting, i think they're using this oportunity to slowly reboot and eventuanly redo a storyline like Dark Phoenix, but properly this time.

Only problem I have with your roster is splitting up Scott/Jean and Kitty/Peter.

I wouldn't want to see a Team A or a Team B unless they eventually came into conflict. I'd just keep the different teams already made and make sure their goals come across. For example, X-Force has a very different stand from X-Men, from what I've heard.

X-Force: Wolverine, Gambit, Deadpool (+ maybe Cable, Psylocke, Colossus, Domino, Archangel)

X-Men: Cyke, Storm, Rogue, Iceman, Beast, Shadowcat, Iceman, etc.

I'd split the teams like this

X-Force
Initial Roster: Cable, Deadpool, Domino, Archangel, Psylocke
2nd Film Additions: Fantomex, X-23, Siryn
3rd Film additions: Warpath, Sunspot

Astonishing X-Men
Cyclops, Wolverine, Shadowcat, Phoenix, Colossus, Beast

Uncanny X-Men
Storm, Nightcrawler, Gambit, Rogue, Bishop, Iceman

X-Factor (TV)
Mystique, Quicksilver, Forge, Polaris, Multiple Man, Dazzler, Rictor, Lalya Miller, Strong Guy, Shatterstar, Val Cooper

New Mutants (TV)
Jubilee, Hellion, Chamber, Surge, Cannonball, Husk, Cypher, M, Kiden Nixon, Dust, Prodigy, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Synch, Tabitha Smith, Penance, Anole, Magma Mercury (and Rockslide and Warlock if Fox can find a way to do them on a TV budget)

Alpha Flight (TV)
Guardian, Vindicator, Shaman, Northstar, Snowbird, Sasquatch, Aurora, Windshear, Madison Jeffries, Puck, Talisman, Marrina, Wild Child

The TV teams can have larger rosters since they can roll out new characters over time much more easily.

Splitting the team and having two titles running will just contribute to over saturation of the franchise I think.

Also I feel like 1 team will be preferred over the other leading to fewer tickets purchased for the "B" team. That's how it felt in the comics too when they were doing this. When I was a kid my money went to buying "X-Men" (Blue Team) before "Uncanny" (Gold Team).

Also besides the logistics of the medium (screen time, development, etc), it doesn't really make sense to split the teams. If you're going up against Magneto, Apocalypse, Sinister, or Sentinels doesn't it make sense to have more man power?

In the comics when the original 5 were rescued from Krakoa the question was "What will we do with all these X-Men?", so several members left. That logic doesn't really work in real life though. It seems only beneficial to have more X-Men working towards Xavier's dream.

X-Force and X-Factor films could work because they could have leaders and team members with different philosophies than the X-Men.

^ Pretty much sums it up. I'd say the series has done a pretty good job with rosters considering how much damage TLS did. The 'X-Men' as a team are a group with a strong ideological purpose, and it makes more sense to use other groups for other teams, like X-Factor and X-Force.

The only split teams I could see working out would be revisiting the seperate timelines already established.

I think splitting the cast into teams is a great idea, if only because it would give smaller characters more of a chance to shine. They could easily explain that there are two concurrent issues/enemies that the X-Men need to face, requiring a temporary "divide and conquer" strategy. Storm leading one team, Cyclops leading the other. And Wolverine will probably be off doing his own thing.

I think Fox can get away with it. I mean a "2nd" X-Men team should drive more interest than lets say solo films for Deadpool and Gambit, and a spin-off film for X-Force.

If they split them into two, I think the roster should be like this:
Storm's team: Wolverine, Rogue, Beast, Nightcrawler, Gambit, Psylocke
Cyclops' team: Jean Grey, Iceman, Shadowcat, Colossus, Angel, Professor X

Also like Cherry said, its much easier to give the smaller characters more screentime unlike when you have 10 X-Men members on the screen. Splitting them up, you'd only worry how they are gonna split the screentime for 5 to 7 members.

My idea for Post-Apocalypse was to have Uncanny X-Men movies set in the future with the OT cast dealing with Cable, Phalanx, Shi'Ar ect... And an X-Men series set in the 80s with the FC group dealing with Morlocks, Mr Sinister, Omega Red, Friends of Humanity, Purifiers, Legacy Virus ect...

So the future would be Science Fiction and past would be more commentary and Mutant Affairs
