If they use any explanation for why he's absent in the original trilogy I wouldn't be surprised if it was because he was hanging out with Moira, who was also absent in the original trilogy aside from a brief cameo.

XD Oi, from the beginning of this whole debate it was I who originated that he wouldn't be killed off in First Class;

"Well, least we can assume he won't be killed off early, not this early at least."

I've only interjected that continuity-wise, the character is long since diseased in the ongoing comics, because, well, he is. It sucks. I know.

I'm simply suggesting if the films wanted to go down the route of why the character was around in these early days, but not so much in the next couple of years, then contributing it to the characters death in the comics would be a faithful way to adapt it.

Like, you know how Nightcrawler is now dead now? Would putting him in a film mean the character would be killed off? No. Not at all. Of course not. But,... if a film featuring his character took a turn that became eerily reminiscent of the story in the comic where, his character does bite it, could the likeliness of Nightcrawler being killed on screen occur? Dare to question...

Now, grasp on to what I'm saying. Banshee dies an older man, not a child, nor a teenager, like how he is being depicted here in First Class. This is long after he has had a daughter, and already had been in a relationship with Moria. Neither of which occur in this film because, well, obviously, he's much younger than all that. But..., (and here's where it gets really scary!) Say if the films progress with sequels, and, god forbid the character ages a little bit, and the film makers decide to contribute a bit more of his comic story into the films plot... could the likelihood of the character meeting a similar fate on screen, as he does in comic, be possible?

Or, does everyone here think there's no chance of that happening at all? That, even though the character met his demise this way in the book, that he'll be living a long, safe life in the films story, despite how we know his fate will turn out in the comic? That maybe he'll show up as an adult in some later sequel and be flying around planes and say "Welp, surely nothing bad could result from this scenario? Weeeeeee!!"

I think it would be nice if Banshee went on to found Muir Island with Moira, rather than being bumped off in his first film appearance.

Perhaps he would do so after (temporarily) losing his powers in a story involving Moses Magnum (as in the comics, but without the Japanese earthquake angle!).

I don't think it would feel right to kill him off in his first big-screen appearance, especially as we know Siryn is somehow conceived later on.

Exactly. That's where people are getting me wrong, they think I want to see my favorite character die this early on, in this film. I'm totally opposed to that. I'm glad they made him younger so that WON'T be happening, in fact, this early in the character's life.

All I'm doing is pointing out the obvious, it is a fate that he suffered in the comic. That he's not around anymore, because of which. I'm just proposing that, it could be a possible fate he is to suffer on film, perhaps when he's older and in a sequel. Adapting a character who is dead in the material they are adapting from, seeing which character meeting a similar fate is always going to at least be a possibility.

Just, not this early on, not when he is still just a teenager, The chap himself even says in his interview, "Not in this film," which hints that he maybe, perhaps, will appear in a future, sequel film. Thus ...

Even though he is not in the posters, I'm still glad that he's one of the battling X-Mens!

And his costume is I think the best costume for a X-member in this movie.

I loved his character trailer, despite his lack of accent. But overall, I gotta admit I'm not surprised. Americanizing characters in these films is the trend, so why break it now.

Having that said, though, I'm still really impressed. Though I think my favorite bit was him being laughed at when he falls out of the window xD

lol, it's like people find actors attractive because they're actors.

I bet if you saw him walking down the street you wouldn't give him a second look.
