Default Re: New characters you want to see in the First Class sequel?

Well, I guess I'm the only one who feels the following way (after reading this thread start to finish) so here's my proposal for the sequel:

X-Men:
Xavier
Scott Summers
Jean Grey
Storm
Beast
Banshee

The Brotherhood
Magneto
Emma Frost
Mystique
Azazel


Reasons: The above mutants in my opinion present the best visuals and story-telling elements for a sequel to really set this franchise back up properly. Most of the mutants are A-List characters who moviegoing audiences REALLY want to see. Lack of their presence was sorely felt in the first film and the box office sales suffered for that, even though the quality was a return to form for the franchise.

The continuity issues of First Class can be handled to an extent with the following changes:

Changes:

Havok--Delete: The actor playing this character is not a good one. Visually, he's nowhere near as exciting as his brother, IMO. And continuity-wise, he shouldn't be there anyway. Including him in First Class was bad politics on FOX's part-easily one of the most transparently uper-personal vendetta-driven decisions the studio has made since killing off Scott in X3.

However, deleting him (i.e. Nightcrawler not appearing in X3) corrects it. Not all of these mutants have to be reused for the sequel.

Riptide--Delete: Redundant powers, speaky no English--or any other language anyway.

Angel Salvadore--Delete: With both Mystique AND Emma Frost working for Magneto, she is rendered useless now. Her deletion will give more camera time for developing Emma, who was reduced to a vacuous fembot in the last film.

Storm--Add: We already saw a glimpse of her in First Class so we know she's alive during this time frame. She needs to be added now, not only for diversity, but to balance out the gender bender problem created by Mystique's departure in the first film. The character remains one of Marvel's biggest names and in term of marketing, will be an instant box office draw--which this sequel will need.

Also, since X3's Angel and Ice-Man aren't born yet in this continuum, Storm is the only other "senior" original member mainstream audiences will recognize besides Wolverine and of course, the following two....

Jean & Scott--Add: Desperately needed. And yes, I'll say it: I want a love story here NOW to take our focus off of the over wrought Xavier/Magneto "love story." Jean and Scott, along with Beast are the only ones who deserved to be in the last film anyway, so they are overdue.

Banshee--Recast: Get another, slightly older actor. And one with better acting skills so this character can really be a prime player in this sequel. They made him a red-headed goofy mess in the last film and he felt wasted to me.

I had a hard time understanding him. It's like, he didn't open his mouth up all the way when he'd speak.

I thought he was a cute kid - typical teenager without being horribly annoying.

Banshe brings so much fun, both in the comedy department and on visual effects.

He's in fact the first x-men to really fly like the mutants on the comics, or any other hero that can fly.

So he is a must for the sequel, well, the three x-men to date. All need more development, specially Banshee and Havok.

Storm did fly on the movies but she didn't fly like Banshee on X-Men: First Class.

Storm..."spun" in the films. She didn't fly quite like Banshee--and she should've considering her uniform's "wings" are similar to his.

I agree with "deleting" Angel Salvadore and Riptide. However, I don't think Scott, Jean, and Storm should be brought in so soon; I don't think they were that old in the original trilogy (30's perhaps?), so they'd either be very young, or they wouldn't exist yet, and I don't think the sequel will be going too far into the future. And I agree about recasting Banshee with a stronger actor.

If they're doing Days of Future Past, I don't see the need to bring them in at all. I just don't think there is enough time.

In the comics Storm can manipulate the wind currects so that if she wears that big cape thing she can definately fly, as she did in Dark Pheonix Saga.

She can definitely fly without the cape, too.

The day I see young Storm flying at the same time than Banshee, it will be a wonderfull day.

Two x-men flying on the air and fightting as a team would be such a special sequence, after all these years, with past movies and only the animated series showing that kind of action

Same here, he was a bit goofy in parts, but he got serious when he needed to and pulled it off well.

I would like to see Storm float or fly more often, like she should use her powers for smaller things and not just for action. Its like seeing Jean Grey using her telekenesis just to pick up a syringe or Iceman cooling Wolverine's beer.

Yeah, those bits are great because they are slightly amusing and are an intreresting insight into the day-to-day of having powers !

Not exactly a new name per se but I would love to see Gambit return in this, wouldnt mind Kitsch coming back either as I thought he did quite well in the role.

Id like to see Gambit once Scott, Jean and Storm are already introduced.

I know we'll have to wait some years for that, but it would be great to have them all together, it could be the closer we get to X4, and a nod to the 90's tv show, even without Rogue and Wolverine.

Gambit is a bit of a shady character who did work for Mr Sinister. They both could be in the movie I guess. Mr Sinister also worked with the following weirdos: Gorgeous George, Hairbag, Ruckus, and Slab. They're just too strong, the X-men could never defeat them!I think Forge or Thunderbird would be neat, adding an Native American presence to the film.

How about not recasting or deleting anybody, and i think Havoc's powers are more exiting than Cyclop's as when he uses he must have a certain control and can release them from his hands or chest
