Is there a reason the "Thread Manager" keeps making these "this is a continuation of the old thread...here?"

What's up with this?

Yes, it is.

Since there isn't much to talk about now, I wonder what you guys would like to see for the full trailer? I'm always a bit iffy on full trailers because unlike teasers, which can be fast and slick, full trailers tend to be convoluted with choppy dialog.

I would like to see young Magneto, Xavier and Mystique. Then see Magneto and Xavier meeting. Then the "man in black" explaining his plan and introducing Charles and Xavier to Hank, Raven and Moira (if that's how they first meet.) Then I'd like to see Charles offering his parents' mansion as a place to train. Maybe a line referencing some projects (quick flashes of Cerebro and the Danger Room.) I'd like to hear a bit of Shaw and what he's up to. Maybe some overlapping dialogue from Charles about how difficult bring a mutant is as we see a montage of Beast transforming, Mystique crying, Havok struggling etc... and then some Cuba action at the end, including some of the fight. Ending line: something like, "I am... Magneto."

What makes Xavier so interesting to me is that he is good. It seems like a little boy with that much power could only turn evil yet there he is a symbol of good throughout the story.

But i dont know if they will, this movie seems to be more about Prof X and Magneto and not the X-men as a who, not to mention this movie doesn't have the big name characters that the previous films had

But who knows, i hope they do it.

I think the names trailer would be good this time, so the general audience will start knowing the characters that will appear on the movie, specially the new characters.

I think its a good idea. so people would start saying: "that Havok mutant looks cool"... or "the girl with the wings seem hot"... "that's young Beast!!"... and all those things.

KG completely nailed it! Still think they should have given him a better costume & showcased his powers properly. Maybe he'll be available again when Vaughn is done with his prequel trilogy & we move on to the future!

Hoult's Beast is clearly not a younger version of Grammer's Beast.

It's a completely different look, but it's still basically the same Beast. Singer even goes out of his way to say we've seen Beast in the films before when he talks about the characters that have "already appeared in the films".

I choose to believe they're not the same characters, because I choose to believe 'The Last Stand' does not exist. And if there is a another present-day film made, I hope to God Beast looks like Hoult's Beast and there are throwbacks to his arc in 'First Class'.

Well, there will probably never be another present day film made, thankfully.

And, while they're ignoring certain aspects of TLS, it's still an individuals choice to ignore the film completely or not. There is no right or wrong answer.

Singer's seems to only be taking his movies into account with this prequel. He's also used Sebastsian Shaw before, the same place he used Hank McCoy.

To be fair, we only see Hank calling him "Mr. Shaw". It could be Shinobi Shaw.

True, but we also know that in the Singerverse Beast/McCoy was intended to be a scientist, which is what we're seeing here.

The problem is that you're trying to use this film (all 1 mins 51 seconds of it, so far) to validate your dislike of another film (TLS) and that, by trying to prove TLS is being ignored, that your opinion on disliking it is 'correct.'

Very fanboyish. Tsk tsk.

The look of First Class's Beast looks to me more like a Vaughn creation (he was going to use Cat Beast in his version of The Last Stand) and nothing to do with Singer. We've seen the conceptual artwork for Singer-Beast (which were exaggeratedly ape-like) and he has said he wanted his Beast to be all CGI. The First Class Beast isn't like this at all.

Similarly, this Angel Salvadore doesn't sound like Singer to me. It's Vaughn who wanted Stacy X (reptilian mutant prostitute) in his version of X3. I wouldn't be surprised if he wanted this insectoid mutant stripper in First Class. The good thing is the look/design of Angel Salvadore is a marked improvement on the comics. She looks more like a dragonfly than a bluebottle, thank God. Makes me think of Dragonfly from the Ani-Men, who the X-Men fought in the storyline in which Thunderbird died.

Additionally, if TLS were being ignored, we'd be seeing the Warren Worthington version of Angel in this. Whether he'd be a naked prostitute as well is another matter, but I'm sure some wouldn't object.
