That's from the character promos, and they took that line from the Hitman series lol.

Maybe the best scene in X-Men?

But don't tell him that. It's everyone else's fault that his writing sucks.

I still don't understand why that line or line delivery is so awful. It's sort of become mythical all these years since 2000.

I never really noticed the line too much until I started hearing how bad people thought the line was. Now I can't watch that particular scene without thinking how bad that line is supposed to be.

Weird.

Joss Whedon has said singer & berry ruined that line as it was mean't to be a (buffy style) jokey/sarcastic fun line but it got turned into a serious badass line which came across as flat

The line doesn't really work no matter the delivery. Storm throughout the film did nothing to suggest that she would throw funny, sarcastic one-liners whilst in battle. It would have gone completely against the characterization we saw earlier in the film. They really should have just left that line out.

Exactly.

Plus, "Buffy style" is pretty horrible anyways...

I'm glad that they incorporated that aspect of Beast's character into the film, but I wonder if they cut the line short because Kinberg and Penn don't actually know any quotes from real life writers and philosophers

This guy gets it. It's such an un-Stormlike thing to say anyway. I'm baffled as to why he can't see that. Reminds me of those smug people from South Park.

Agreed.

Joss Whedon shouldn't blame Halle/Bryan.

Agreed.

Characters completely changing their stance/character to tell a quick joke is common for Whedon, just look at Thor going from defending his brother seriously to abandoning him flippantly in a matter of seconds.

whedon said this about the line

Quote:
Okay, which was also mine, and that's the interesting thing. Everybody remembers that as the worst line ever written, but the thing about that is, it was supposed to be delivered as completely offhand. [Adopts casual, bored tone.] "You know what happens when a toad gets hit by lightning?" Then, after he gets electrocuted, "Ahhh, pretty much the same thing that happens to anything else." But Halle Berry said it like she was Desdemona. [Strident, ringing voice.] "The same thing that happens to everything eeelse!" That's the thing that makes you go crazy. At least "You're a dick" got delivered right. The worst thing about these things is that, when the actors say it wrong, it makes the writer look stupid. People assume that the line...

^He needs to stop defending that line. He misses the point entirely. I love Joss but he can't really defend something that is completely out of character and contrived. I think he just needs to take ownership that that is was a mistake. Nuff said.

Somehow I doubt he cares what a nobody like you feels about his career. Is he a perfect writer? Absolutely not. But he has got an Oscar nom and numerous emmy noms for his writing. I think he can have a couple bad lines here and there.

Haven't really been a super fan of Whedon, but the dude hit a home run with The Avengers.

That movie could've failed and Whedon (with enormous amounts of pressure) delivered.

Plus, I hear he did Speed and Toy Story. Those are really good movies!

It's funny how people are just glazing over the fact that he not only wrote but also directed Avengers. It's mind-boggling.
