Default Ideal sequel cast... (may contain spoilers)

so for the sequel, who would be your ideal cast?

heres mine

The three cast members would be
Robert Knepper - as Sinister
Joseph Gordon-Levitt - as Toad
Dianna Argon - as Polaris

The reason for those is because i thought it would be cool to have magnetos daugther without having to mention quicksilver or scarlet witch BUT, i thought why dont we make the younger verson of toad and polaris a mutant couple, but are split apart by views, Toad eventually going with Magneto and Polaris with Xavier, where Polaris and Havok become an item...

Levitt as Toad??? What??? lol Dude, the guy's a grade "A" actor. No way he's doing this.

I like your Sinister though. Alot.

I know what your thinking Joseph Gordon-Levitt is hot property right now because of inception, But...

im thinking maybe we should build the toad role up so its more vital to the plot.

in x1, Toad could fly a helicopter, and was pretty much a hands on engineer.

look at the whole operation.

You have Mystique who was the computer expert, Sabretooth was the brawn, Magneto was the master mind, which made Toad a somewhat engineer... he did repaint the statue of liberty torch. Im thinking between toad and magneto did they create that device and mystique programed it.

So... im think toad would be essentially the equvilant to nightcrawler in x2. Only Toads character would essentially start of good and then change sides, where as polaris who would be toads girlfriend turns from being reckless and carefree to realising who her father is and wanting to make the world right by siding with xavier. It would be awesome to see Levitt in the role weather he could or not would be another thing but...

I remember an interiew Levitt said about the roles he choses and he said he would only act in something for two reasons 1. it was well written and 2. if it would be a fun experiance. Hes more proud of his roles like from 500 days of summer, inception, morgan m morganson he is proud of that stuff, but Dark Knight and G.I.Joe he refers to them as a bit of fun.

So i see X-Men because of the subject matter, would be ideal for him because its a mixture of having a bit of fun and delivering an important message.

you would be surprised if he was offered and turned it down because i feel he would do it.

Its possible, though highly unlikely. Then again with Vaughn, the quality of the character can significantly improve. I just really dislike the character

Speaking of Sabertooth, I really want Liev Schreiber to play him if they do add him to the villain roster. I'd love to see Liev in Fassbender's crew, specially since his character really doesn't age.

I think they only new character that should be added to sequel should be 1 new X-Man.I like the Idea of that being polaris.

My feeling Is let's save Sinster for later film.If First Class Is a trilogy he should be In third film when they Introduce teenage Cyclops.

I liked Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth.But It's problematic to use Wolverine actors not In other X-Films again.Heck I have said It's not the best Idea to use Ryan Reynolds again as Deadpool.But,If exception could be made It should be for Liev.

He is, one of the first members of the Brotherhood and seeing him and Mystique together could be interesting..

But it's not gonna happen.

Interesting casting idea for Polaris. Never would have thought it.

She isnt an amazing actress, but it would be cute to see her as an x-men, and with Havok, Banshee and Beast.

JGL is overkill as Toad and I think a younger Toad would be better anyway. A younger sarcastic punk Toad would be amusing to see. Vaughn knows how to work with young actors so getting a younger lesser known would be fine. I don't think he should be that major a character either, just some comic relief and action scenes. On the level of Banshee in First Class probably.

Havok and Sunfire have powers that are too similar.

And if we see Polaris, I'd like her powers to be a bit different to those of Magneto. The green hair could be explained as due to copper compounds (which are green) - her body would have excess copper, making it a conductor and generator of electricity. So, as well as manipulating the magnetic fields caused by that electricity, she could also fire bolts of energy (like green electricity?). And, unlike movie Magneto, maybe her power wouldn't be restricted to controlling metal - by magnetising air molecules, she could create a magnetic forcefield bubble/dome (which we have waiting to see from Magneto.). But she could be less powerful than Magneto at moving metal and perhaps not capable of lifting bridges, submarines, etc.

If they did decide to have Toad in the next movie, and it takes place in the 70s, I can imagine Toad being involved in the Punk scene in the UK.

Default Re: Ideal sequel cast... (may contain spoilers)

Ok, im gonna have to disagree with alot of you on the character of toad.

See my thoughts on x-men 1, is that when Fox decided to make this movie, Fox took a big risk, Bryan didnt have a large budget to work with and characters were cut, as we all know Beast and Blob would of been in x1 i budget permited... So what has that got to do with toad? Well...

Bryan focused most of his character developes in 3 key characters, Magneto, Wolverine and Rogue, Xavier was a close 4th... But essentially you were watching a movie about Magnetos war, Rogue's struggle and Wolverine's exploration into self discovery of who he is and who he wanted to be... again whats this got to do with toad.

The other characters from x1 wasnt given development, it wasnt until X2 did characters like Xavier, Storm, Mystique, Jean, Cyclops get any further development... So when i think about the Toad we saw in X1 was really an under developed character that didnt get a chance to explore the role.

I couldnt agree with you more on Toad being a lame character... his ability is that he has toad like features, long tung, spits gunk, and can jump really high. But what you got to imagine is that Toad was given a raw deal. He didnt get one of the beautifle powers some of the other mutants got, like angel like wings, three bone claws coated in adamantium... no toad was given a really terrible ability. It makes him slimey, weird looking. But think of this...

We have this character that really got a raw deal with mutation, he probably started out normal, but then mutation kicked in, he's slimey all the time and he starts to look a little worse for wear. So what would be his mentality?

Im surprised Toad isnt P!ssed at mutation for what it has done to him... so where would he stand?

Magneto's idea is that you should be proud of who you are and not hide
or
Xavier's peace keeping everyone should be excepted.

see im thinking Toad is so volital that, say he as this teen dating the character polaris, who was this trouble maker uses her ability for laughs and never thought about her consiquences. Polaris discovers that she is the daugther of magneto who does something terrible but Polaris decides to join Xavier's cause in a bid that maybe to do some good. Where as Xavier is thinking maybe he could reach magneto if he sees his daugthers good acts. and Polaris convinces a reluctant Toad to join the X-Men because she basically sells him this idealology that xavier has been stating. However during polaris time on X-Men she falls in love with Havok, This tears toad apart and all his hate and anger towards the mutant world spurs him to side with Magneto. a world were mutants are superior...

Now saying that... think of the story of x-men 1, magneto made a machine that turns humans into mutants...

so you have a character like toad who is p!Ssed of with his mutation but then you have Magneto and his idea to change everyone into a mutant... the likelyness is that there would be mutants with worse abilities than toad but it would be a world full of all types of mutants.

I just feel Toad has alot of a character development that you could open up purely because he was a henchmen in x1... his small cameo and explination to why he is part of the brotherhood would make a great reason to have the character return in a more extended role.

I just feel you lot are judging Toad on the fact that there wasnt much development of the character in x1 and his abilities arnt really too great. But the world isnt made of mutants with amazing powers, and you got to think the x-men world is all about the story not the powers.

I'd like to see a young Toad, but I hear there'll be one new addition to go up against Magneto... and I think it'll be great if they limited the new additions as the roster is pretty big, unless they kill some more characters off
