Their best bet is to use Storm, Cyclops, Jean, Beast and maybe Gambit or one of the characters from First Class
That's why I said reboot the franchise lol. Forget about the first trilogy altogether and let this be a prequel to an xmen set in the late 80s or 90s with Scott, Jean, ice man and angel as teens, and beast as an adult. That way, when you get to them being adults it can be set in a contemporary time frame.
By time the third movie came along it could be set in the late 90s early 2000s and introduce wolverine, storm and nightcrawler, have beast and become a permanent professor at the school and let angel "disappear " until later. Lol, Idk I'm just brainstorming.

Ehhh, I don't really agree with this, tbh. There's still potential for a 4th film overall. X3 messed a few things up, but they can either ignore X3 or some how fix things.

Honestly, I can't remember...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
There was some background music in one scene, but I don't recall it. I actually thought they might have a Duffy or Amy Winehouse 60s-styled track in there, so quite honestly I am not going to be fussed by a Gnarls Barkley song...

Don't get too drawn into the excessive nitpicks, like that other post from which the Barkley reference is derived. I honestly wouldn't know where to start when looking at that particular post, it was just too much. I'm not prepared to take on board such a deconstruction of the entire film. I'm happy that I'm happy with it

yes he's his father, in the "magic trick" scene (in the movie, not in the clip), Xavier says, when he reads Stryker's mind something like "i know you're worried about your son William" (don't know the exact sentence because i've seen the movie in french)

Aww, I saw you changed it so I deleted my post. Basically you need to put the part after the = sign in the URL in between the YT brackets.

Anyway, that song actually sounds quite retro so I doubt I'll be bothered by it's inclusion.

Yeah I guess it kinda sounds like it could be from the 60s. But...it's not! Why not include a real 60s song? Like... "American Woman" like.... in Austin Powers...

I guess only the people who've ever heard of Gnarls Barkley will likely be jarred by it. Me? I'd never even heard of him/them(?) until a few minutes ago. So it'll go over my head completely(I don't listen to modern music much). I do agree that they could easily have included some actual 60's song there and wonder why they didn't.

Same reason that Laura Donner woman does anything. She probably thinks it won't appeal to young people. Just how she thought modern day American movie-goers wouldn't be interested in a British character which is why she made John Constantine American. She's a loon and a bad bad producer.

I sure hope Joe Johnston doesn't add modern music to the Cap movie*.


*I have high faith that he won't. If there's one thing he excels in, it's getting his period stuff right.

That didn't even make sense because plenty of British actors have had staring roles with their own accent and Hollywood the films been successful but anyway the Gnarles Barkley song did not bother me it sounded like a some from that period which is why it was used if it was 50 Cent or something it would be a different matter

The only thing I'm concerned about is the opening credits scene. Someone may have already mentioned it, but I missed it - is it in similar fashion to the Singer opening sequences? Monologue? Nifty CGI visual? Cerebro doors?

I had arranged a preview last night, but it was - of course - cancelled due to our lovely, never-ending thunderstorms.
