Default X-Men 3 Alternate Cuts

So i knows its been about 4 years since we've seen the last stand in theaters, and i know weve gotten the 3 alternate endings and a number a pointless deleted scenes. But what ive been coming across for some time now is there were different cuts of the movie shown in different countries. Now i dont know why these cuts havent been leaked but the endings for each cut (there have been two that have been the most talked about) have been different and i think wouldnt made alot of sense especially if they were really interested in a sequel. Okay so the first cut was with a ending that had pyro returning to the mansion and trying to get the forgive of everyone especially bobby, then the camera cuts to the main hall of the mansion as things begin to shake, it then shows the graves of xavier, cyclops, and then finally jean greys' but we see that jeans has been altered there is now a huge whole where she would have been which means shes been resurrected, why didnt they include this on the dvd atleast? and not in another country where we would never see it, i think a resurrection seen at the end wouldve atleast been a nice nod to the comics (something that ratner and crew ruined was the phoenix character.) Then another cut shown in a different country had two crucial cyclops scenes, here they are, near the end of the film once everything transpires it cuts to the lake where jean grey was trapped in for so long, all of a sudden we hear movement within the lake, and then we see a red beam shoot out of the water (cyclops is alive, jean saved him from the phoenix by transfering him into a telekinetic cocoon), and then after the narration at the end of the film it cuts to a hospital, we see someone laying in a hospital bed (lights off, face not seen) the camera then fades to the top of the bed revealing a quick second shot of cyclops waking up with the screen fading red.
Why were these cuts of the movie never revealed? Atleast add those scenes to the dvd, to make up for the horrific version we got.
What do you guys think? does anyone know where to find these scenes?

I haven't heard of any other deleted scenes besides the ones on the DVD but those sound interesting especially if Cyclops, Xavier and Phoenix get ressurrected. I know X3 was a dud for the comic purists but was the most successfull of all three X-movies I still hate FOX for not continuing onto an X-Men 4.

Those scenes were both rumors made up by hopeful fanboys around the time X3 came out. I don't think they were ever real or we would have seen them by now.

It sounds to me like bad fan fiction. To think that the movie would have two endings with characters revealed to be alive in hospital beds is a little ridiculous too.

Its actually not fan fiction, i know for a fact that japan had a special screening before the film came out and several different scenes then the version that came out here in the states, i waited til the dvd came out to check out the deleted scenes but the ones in japans version were not added, i know for a fact because i have a childhood friend thats been in japan for years and attended that screening, the japan version had the cyclops scenes added, idk about the jean grey resurrection one though

Funny how none of the actors involved have mentioned filming these deleted scenes.

Funny how known of the actors have mentioned any of the deleted scenes included on the dvd, whats your point? Ive heard reports that cyclops (the actor) lost those scenes because of a fall out between him, ratner, and fox and thats why he got so little screen time, oh and not to mention he was doing another movie at the time. Im certain about the cyclops scenes idk about the jean grey scene, reportedly that was in a special screening in russia, im not sure

What's my point? I thought it was obvious. All the actors are constantly being asked about the movies. And none have said "Yeah, I really wish that scene where they brought my character back to life was still in it." Over the years I have heard many actors, writers, directors, etc mention something about some deleted scene or another. Sometimes pics pop up of it, or it is released on DVD....but no one has hard copy of any one connected with the film talking about the deleted scenes that are being hidden from the public.

True, i will admit yes actors do get asked that all the time, but x-men 3 was a critical bust. The only reason it was successful financially because its x-men 3 and we knew phoenix was gonna be in it, alot of people were interested because of ratner and how he would direct it (which sucked). These were overseas copies of the movie, and id imagine for a small group of people to see how they liked different versions and what they should release or not release, yes actors usually bring them up if the media or alot of viewers were curious as to why that was cut, but this was for a small amount of people, and it got larger attention from the internet long after the movie came out to dvd, who would talk about it then? It was practically test footage or something like that. It would have been nice to have a actor confirm that, because then they would most likely release the footage,but nonetheless the footage is real and shouldve been shown because alot of people didnt like that cyclops died, it couldve saved fox from getting attacked for misleading promotion involving cyclops

Yeah, sorry I'm not buying that.

There was a bunch of cam videos on Youtube showing the Professor X ending but for some reason the people that saw the Cyclops ending and Jean Grey endings all decided not to do the same. I guess all the webcam people all coincidentally saw the same cut. Not to mention you merged like several different endings together. Some people claimed it was the Alkali Lake ending or the hospital bed scene. I have never even heard them mentioned being shown together nor does it make sense to show them together story wise or in terms of surprising the audience. I also am pretty sure I never heard the Pyro scene merged with the Jean resurrection scene.

So none footage of these endings showed up anywhere, they were never referenced by any official source, and no actor ever brought them up. After all this time they still exist only in the world of fanboy rumor, 4 years after the fact. The only thing to back this up is this friend you have from Japan and from what I've heard your sources aren't exactly reliable.

Edit: Also, the Professor X ending was made last minute according to Brett Ratner. He just grabbed Stewart, a camera man, and went to go shoot it. All the other "alternate endings" would have required shooting on location and preparation. Cyclops at Alkali Lake would have required a CGI team and the Phoenix ending would have required someone to dig up the grave before hand. So the Phoenix and Cyclops endings would have required way more time and money then the super cheap Professor X ending, but Fox decided to not even put those scenes on the DVD in any country.

Also, when we got an X-Film with an actual alternate post-credits scene with Wolverine, we got several sources beforehand that the endings were going to be there and we got video footage of it on youtube on opening weekend. Not to mention with every single bad movie there is always talk of tons of deleted scenes that would have made the film good that will show up on the DVD (Spider-Man 3, X-Men 3, Terminator Salvation, Wolverine, etc.). It's rarely true and usually just fanboy speculation.

Yea this is all complete BS hahaha.... get real.


Anyway speaking of alternate cuts... we REALLY need a cut of X3 with all those sweet deleted scenes in there. Extra battle footage and alternate X-jet boarding come straight to mind. even maybe some exclusions.

The clips are in HD on the blu ray, they would fit perfect with the movie... who can recut it? i will buy it INSTANTLY. Please do this. It would make the movie at least more watchable.
