No not necessarily just to the comic book -- like events in the 80s of DOFP features Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Angel and they really don't have much of a significance there. They're just there as X-Men members.

Logan in the future on the other hand, that's a significant role.

Storm has a signficant role in the past as well as in the future. So for me, ideally, Storm should've been in both continuities in the film. I don't think we're getting that.

Why not pre-Magik Illyana? I would love to see her using her stepping disks and then something go wrong while using one in battle and you see demon hands grab her and pull her away forever.

of course fans would know and it would be an awesome set up for a NEW MUTANTS movie

Psylocke... I say she's new because I refuse to believe that was her in X3.

I'm not that bothered if we don't get any more new characters in DoFP.

Blink (or whoever Bingbing is playing), Booboo Stewart's character, Dinklage's character and Sy's character are enough for me!

Im with ya there.

Only thing Im worried about is the 70s. Throw in Havok, Banshee and at the most one more c or d lister no one will care about being stuck in the 70s, and that should be more then enough.

agree with u guys.

The future timeline feels big already, seriously, no need for more.

and what can I say about Havok and Banshee, of course they should return! we dont need new x-men on the past AGAIN. Just keep developing the existing mutants, Singer! more Booboo and a girl, and thats it!

Tough to tell without knowing if multiple characters are goen back to the 70s.

Twilight guy and Blink could be on the FC team, so Im expecting at the most maybe one more mutant if theres just a single time traveler. But I don't think it will be a big name, and thats probably a good thing.

I have a strong feeling Blink will only appear on the future.

and that another girl will join the 70's team, so there would be two new additions, with Booboo.

Still find unlikely that only Beast, Booboo and a girl will be the 70's x-men on the very first scenes of the 70's. The school will have some kids and students, so Im sure there will be at least 4 x-men already. whoever they will be

Even though I was kinda disappointed that once again they didn't choose Psylocke to be in the movie (X3 doesn't count) and went with another D-list X-Men female character. Its okay that Bingbing is not portraying her because Bingbing looks so cutesy to me. And I hope Blink will not a member of the X-Men, that she could just help the team or I don't know, I just don't want her as a X-Men because she wasn't a X-Men in the comics.

If they chose Psylocke she would be stuck in the 70s. Which isnt really a good place for her to be. And the OT crew has Kitty, Storm and Rogue. She Would have had zero screen time with those three there. Better to wait then have her done wrong or shoved in again.

Well unless the writers give her an actual role, I don't see why it could be bad. After DOFP, I want FOX to reintroduce her in X4/X5.

It'd be awesome if Bryan included a gay character or made an X-man gay. Let the X-men franchise be the first to put a gay superhero on the big screen.

I'm looking at you Ultimate Colossus

I'm pretty sure Blink was a member of The Astonishing X-men. And considering Astonishing was what the Flagship title Uncanny X-men turned into durinng Age of Apocalypse, you can't get any more X-man than that.

Besides, since the future setting will call for some mutants in internment camps and others on the run, I doubt there would be an actual team in that timeline. But we'll see, I guess.

Yeah, No doubt Blink was a very popular character during AOA and Exiles.

One of the few times an Alt version of a character is more popular then their 616 counterpart.

yeah, I think it would be a great move. and smart too, if u ask me, since that lwould give the x-men franchise an extra publicity and as you say, it would be awesome if the X-men franchise is the first to do it.

Feels like this is the right franchise for it, so hopefully sooner rather than later

But that was set in alternate timeline. But in 616 universe, she was never a member of the X-Men.

I don't wanna see Colossus gay unless Daniel Cudmore could pull it off! LOL!

And I don't want to see Northstar, another D-list character that needs to stay away from the movies.

If they want to have a gay character in the series, I think it should be someone that isn't gay in the comics.

I think I'd rather have Banshee and Havock back over new characters now. We already have a good few.

Don't see this happening any time soon, unfortunately. Films are still way more conservative than TV, and in a big blockbuster like this, a studio would be extra reluctant to include anything that could potentially turn some of the audience off.

I've read an interview with Steven Soderbergh recently, where he recounted how he couldn't get any studio to make a Liberace biopic and eventually had to go with HBO. The reason for refusals? "Too gay".

Not that I have anything against gay characters, but I really don't think it would be a good time to bring one to the franchise. DOFP already sounds big as it is, story-wise, and having so many characters (none of which are gay), the least it needs is to add a new character who's gonna bring controversy and more personal dilemmas to the mix. Somehow I don't see that happening in DOFP.

I think the original post said it like a possibility for future movies, not exactly for this sequel.

DOFP clearly doesnt need more characters at all, lol

I'm excited with Blink, really excited, also a little bit scared, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Lauren Schuler Donner loves the BAMF effect, if she had her way, every single X man would have the ability to BAMF, I don't wanna see Blink in the movie if she's just gonna be BAMFing all around and not using her actual powers.

If they do have a gay character, they don't have to make a big deal out of it. A few subtle references naturally woven into the story, or maybe even a bit of humour (like two guys looking at each other as if they're both thinking 'he's hot' as Colossus walks past the study room or something). I wouldn't want it to be someone over-the-top who has issues, just a mutant who also happens to be gay.

It's not crucial though, since the X-Men is already emblematic of minority groups.
