Well, the movie didn't actually make it 100% clear whether Raven actually slept with Erik or not.

And I don't really see Erik and Raven being involved in the sequel. Whatever may or may not happened between them in Erik's bedroom after the kiss, I didn't get an impression that it was because either of them had any real attraction or romantic interest in each other. Erik and Emma, perhaps - plus she's much closer to Erik's age as well whereas Erik pretty much told Raven that she's too young for him.

I have to ask, how well do you think they flow together?

I've watched all three in a row before and I'm actually surprised at how well they work.

Yes, overall they work well together. I was surprised how X1 and X2 still feel, after all this time, like well-made films.

But there is a tonal shift when it comes to The Last Stand.

In The Last Stand, some of the editing is too fast, some scenes needed to breathe a bit more and allow for expressions/reactions/subtext; some of the dialogue is poor or cheesy; Xavier and Storm in particular seemed a bit 'off' compared with the earlier two films; McKellen's acting wasn't as good as in X1 and X2; and the look/texture/colour of the film isn't as pristine and attractive as X1 and X2, it seemed a bit harsh on the eye. But I was surprised to feel that Wolverine - to me anyway - still felt mostly like Wolverine, except for the unconvincing sobbing over Xavier's empty wheelchair.

Okay, then, so do you want Jean or Phoenix or Famke back?

I do! I want her to either return as the Phoenix with full fire bird effect or have the universe course corrected after the events of the film. OR just start out with a completely alternate timeline where Jean is alive and "good" Phoenix with the firebird.

She will likely be regular Jean Grey If In future scenes.Forget about Phoenix.They will do
nothing to remind people of last Stand.I will bet you all they want to connect In DOFP Singerverse(X-Men,X2) and First Class.

It will be so cool if Days of Future Past will be considered both a sequel to First Class AND to the Singer movies. Like, you could put it in sequence after either if you so choose.

It would be nice to see Jean appear in some form. Wonder if this will be changing X3 in some ways?

i wouldn't be suprised if they did get James, Famke, Halle or maybe Kelsey to reprise their roles as the "future" X-Men set in the apolyptic future. Outside of Hugh/Wolverine they are the most popular and it would be a chance for them to shine w/o overshadowing the First Class characters...whoever is cast/returns for the "future" X-Men won't have a major role, their story will be told maybe for the first 10-30min. of the film before they go back into the past...

I dont understand why almost everyone count Ellen out.

She is an actress, and even if she doesnt like comic movies at all, she could like to join the original cast again, and work with a new director.

I heard here before that Ellen Page said she didn't want to comeback in another X-Men movie. I don't know if thats true or not but thats why I crossed her out.

Ellen didn't seem quite right to me as Kitty anyway, to be honest. I also doubt they'd bring back a minor character to take up screentime, it wlll be more significant characters/actors who are likely to reappear.

They used three different Kittys in three different movies, I don't see why they can't make it four for four.

I advise we all take these actors' comments with more than a pinch of salt, but it's certainly promising. I would love to see Famke back.

FOX have a potential fan-gasm on their hands with this film. It's not realistic to think they're going to go to huge efforts to fix their mistakes with TLS, but it's also in their interest to exploit this story for all the opportunities it allows. Even if they're happy with TLS, this film is a great chance to revisit fan-favourite characters who were once long-gone.

plus depending on how far a head the future scenes take place, we may be looking at a more grown up Kitty, which would help explain the recast

Maybe so. Ellen Page was the wrong body shape - a sweet little round face, compact body with no hips. Kitty Pryde needs a more angular, delicate, willowy frame (as long as they don't make her too gawky and skinny like she was when first introduced in the comics).

No actress was the perfect choice for their characters. So if they want to be a bit fathful with the storyarc in the comics, they should get Ellen back.

She is Ellen Page, of course she isnt a worldwide star like Hugh or Halle, but she's an Oscar nominated actress and her last movie is with Woody Allen, so is not like she is an unknown precisely. So to recast Kitty would be a big mistake.

They should try their best to keep as much continutiy as possible with original trilogy. we all know Kitty was only a cameo in X1 and X2. X3 was the movie that set the the ultimate actors for the well known x-men, including Beast, Kitty, Collossus and Angel. Many fans dont like one actor or another, but they were the actors choosen, and if we want a cohesive universe and continuity, they shouldnt recast anyone.

Kitty may not even be In film.Ellen was one not mentioned when Patrick Stewert made
his slip.The returning actors may be Patrick,Ian Mckellen,Hugh Jackman,Halle Berry,Famke
Janssen,Rebecca Romijn,and Anna Paquin.

I hope It doesn't happen but I have bad suspecion that If they can't work out deal for Jackman to have major role as one who travels back In time they may have Mystique In DOFP trade minds will First Class era Mystique.
