Default Re: Sebastian Shaw ageless? like wolverine?

but, seriously, her looking young in X3 (an saying she looked 30, was being generous, tho, the actress playing her was only around 38 at he time, so, she hardly looked 70, either lol) that kinda thing can be overlooked and doesn't need to be explained (when casting her in x3, they obviously didn’t have the hindsight of knowing that one day there would be a prequel made, featuring her in the 60s… but, they should’ve lol)

I would however like to see some developed of her, on how she went from a CIA agent, to a doctor/scientist who specializes in mutants (obviously, the events of this movie, peeked her interest in mutants) but, I’d like for them to maybe talk about her going back to school for a degree in medicine/or science (maybe being under Xavier's tutelage)

The only possible explanation to the whole Moira thing is the Austin Powers 1 route. Making it "Oh, yeah, she's Doctor McTaggert, just like her mother", something like that.

Let's use the same logic of ignoring Beast's cameo in X2 with ignoring Moira's cameo in X3.

There is no continuity lol. They're going to reveal that Nightcrawler is Raven's uncle just because they need to in order to make a sequel work. Forget trying to make sense. You guys are going to end up like Xavier.

Yeah I agree

But Olivia Williams and Rose Byrne are like Sisters in real life.

So Moira in X3 is around the same age as Rose Byrne or knows her?

Also, where is Beast in X2. I remember his cameo on tv in X1 at the bar, but not in X2?

There's about a decades difference in age between the actresses.

The Beast cameo on the TV was from X2, when Mystique seduces the prison guard to inject him with iron. There was no real surprise cameo in the first movie, other than seeing characters like Jubilee, Pyro and Colossus for split seconds.

Oh, ok, I was thinking that was in X1 for some reason.

but as for Shaw, I assumed he kept a nuclear reactor in the sub so he could power up when needed, which helped him look younger

Moira was in the TV/Prof X's funeral and the last scene.

But Olivia Williams was uncredited.

Shaw used the kinetic energy he absorbed to keep himself at the same elderly age most of the time.

I could have sworn he mentioned something about his age to the General during the grenade scene.

Yeah, he said, "...keeps me young, but that's the boring part."
