Yea, it was totally false pretenses.

I do agree that some things didn't need to be so rushed, particularly the Weapon X sequence. I felt like that should have been one of the definitive moments of the entire series, and it was kinda just brushed over.

I mean, I certainly don't think the movie is flawless... but the issues that it does have, I don't see them as making the movie so horrid that people act like it's the absolute worst movie that could ever be made. I find a lot of positives to the movie.

XFC didn't have the 3 years gap and it was better than X3/XOW.

Its not about "the gap".

Its about giving the production time to breath and finding a decent release date that won't allow the film to drown in between the summer titans (First Class).

I hope they'll wait for 2013.

I agree.Some will call First Class the best comic book film of 2011 but due to Fox's
bad promation it got kinda lost In films domesticly.

They need to release It In Summer 2013.If they try to release it In 2012 we are probally looking at november 2012 and It will be up against the third Bond film(Sorry but I refuse
to call this Bond 23)

Hugh is going to be at Comic Con tomorrow at 10:30 in the Petco parking lot promoting Real Steel, giving out toys, signing autographs, etc. JoBlo posted this though, the thought crossed my mind and perhaps this is where the Mangold official announcement will happen? The Fox panel is at 3:15 tomorrow, so it will be interesting...

As the script is finished and apparently good, this could be done in a year in less of a hurry than FC.

I wonder how FOX feel about 2012. It's a huge comic book year, will they want to avoid it because of strong competition, or will they consider it too important to miss out on?

In promoting Real Steel and taking questions from the crowd, Hugh confirms Mangold as director, filming partly in Japan, and shooting in October.

The movie will be finished filming by February because that's when Hugh starts filming Les Miserables. If this movie comes out in 2012 it would have to be at the end of the year.

If they rush It It could be out In July/August.Although a November release Is more
realistic If It comes out In 2012.

I expect FOX might favour a summer '13 date over winter, but I don't really get that logic. There's a lot of holidays over xmas etc and not a lot to do. Avatar made a ton of money.

There's no way they're gonna waste a summer tentpole vehicle on a winter release date. Take Warner Bros. for instance - which as I had originally predicted, moved Man of Steel to the summer of 2013.

Jackman's Wolverine last pulled an $85.5 Domestic opening weekend. They'll wanna replicate that by giving him another summer to bank on.

2013 is already pretty booked, but it has one slot FOX should nab quickly (not to mention they need to give this film an official release date already):

May 3 - Iron Man 3
May 10 - Mommy and Me
May 17 - Singularity
May 24 - Fast and Furious 6
May 31 - The Wolverine
June 7 - Turbo
June 14 - The Man of Steel
June 21 - Monsters University
June 28 - R.I.P.D.
July 3 - Despicable Me 2
July 12 - Pacific Rim
July 19 - Oblivion
July 26 - Thor II

With a good 4 week distance from Iron Man, it can easily pull a strong a weekend opening and then top out at $200+ million by the end of its Domestic run.

2012 ain't happening.

It's Fox. If they want Summer 2012, they'll GET Summer 2012.

They'd be making the same mistake they made with First Class, which seems to have cost them. But, they'd go for it.

That's exactly why I expect them to announce 2013 anytime soon.

First Class was first and foremost a learning experience in how not to release a movie.

Most people would dissagree, but had First Class opened the summer in May, it woulda made Thor numbers. Same goes for 3D conversion which has definitely been boosting the 2011 line-up's BO.

To see Thor break $180 Domestic, and First Class still stuck under $145 just bugs the **** outta me. First Class is such a better movie.
