This quote from Shawn Ashmore really worries me. It makes me wonder if the three of them are going to be the time travellers. Stewart and McKellen I have no issue with being the travellers but I worry if Wolverine is interacting with both casts it's going to turn into yet ANOTHER Wolverine and the X-Men movie. I was kinda hoping we'd get another film where his role was minimized but I guess that was too much to ask for

im slightly worried that wolverine will steal the film also but with talent like Michael Fassbender i think it could give jackman a run for his money.

I think Kitty needs to be the main person from the future. Jackman should have a small but pivotal role. No more than 20 minutes or so of screen time. I think Rogue and Iceman can have small roles. Would like to see Gambit in there, with an older actor in the role.

Yeah, I would prefer Kitty as well. Problem is everyone has their own preference on what they want to see, and theres alot going here with tons of fan favs. So far it looks like everyone should be more then satisfied.

This is not the movie to cut him down specifically cause fans are sick of him and overused. If hes crucuial to the plot then use him, if not then yeah give him some sick action scenes and move on to whats important. Same with other characters. Wolverine is needed in this story no matter what. If hes in the past scenes its probably cause hes one of the few besides Beast, Xavier and Magneto who are alive in both time periods so it could be that they are more forced to use Logan. Honestly, I dont see audiences having a problem with it either way. Hes popular for a reason. And the FC crew is gonna get plenty of screen time here. It should be awesome.

They would deal with mutants in 1973 by passing laws and other things against them. The government wouldn't immediately start with attempted genocide. And by preventing whatever the act is, they're not saying that humans and mutants live in peace with no problems afterwards. There will always be bad mutants out there causing trouble. Just not enough to spend millions constructing giant mutant-hunting death machines.

They do try to deal with the mutants with all the means they have at their disposal. It just takes 30 years for them to master the means & for those means to get out of control.

Charming. I voice my concern in a reasonable way and manage to evoke language. Seems I'm not the one who needs to calm down.

Why would they wait so long to act? Surely it must have occurred to them that the mutant population would only grow and become more powerful...

So maybe someone went back in time to cause the Sentinel future...

The mutant-hating administration was always there. It just didn't have the tools to really fight back.

In First Class (1962) it was Stryker's father. In Origins (1979) it was Stryker. In X-Men (presumably the 90s) it was Robert Kelly. In X2 it was Stryker again & to some extent the President for going along with Stryker's hatred. In X3 it was the whole cabinet in allowing the cure to be weaponized. After Jean decimated Alcatraz & killed hundreds of soldiers the government probably went all the way. Things seemed fine at the end of X3 with Hank becoming the Secretary of Mutant Affairs. Clearly things were not fine & unlike the earlier cases of mutant control in the past decades, the technology finally became available to go the distance.

Kitty won't be the sole time-traveler, she's not a big character in the movies to begin with. If there's a sole time traveler it would be Wolverine, because he's the most marketable character in the series. They are selling this movie and they would wanna use their most well-known character in the movie.

Not gonna happen. Like...ever.

You have to realize that Bryan Singer is in a position to work with the principal members of his dream cast. There's simply no way this film is not going to focus exclusively on this Wolverine/Xavier/Magneto triangle. It's been the mainstay theme for 13 years now, and expect it to continue to be.

lord

Wolverine, Wolverine, Wolverine

open your minds a bit guys, its not that hard.

Wolverine WILL be in all the posters, teasers, trailers, spots, interviews and all. Even if he is on the future, the past, the traverler or not.

We dont need another Wolverine and friends movie. Is that what you want?

if so, ok, good luck to your franchise and beloved "x-men characters", if you support Fox and Singer giving Wolverine the main role

The movie is already "sold". There was already enough intrigue for a FC sequel on its own. Now they've combined the casts and thrown in time travel and giant robots. It doesn't matter which character is the time traveler. They don't need to sell anything.

They cant all of a sudden switch Logan to an unimportant role with the original trilogy members involved. Its just fact and not how this franchise has been set. If they are in it then you can be pretty damn sure he is leading them more then likely with Storm. Ya gotta stop thinking he doesnt deserve time in this film because he does. Thats just how it goes with the original trilogy till he either dies or they restart the crew with Scott. If this movie deosnt put out with Sentinels VS Wolverine beccause Singer listened to the few fans who dont like him I would be a very disappointed audience member. Overall audiences love the hell out of Jackman and Wolverine. Thats not to say others wont have screen time, but for now he is pretty much in control and leading the team for the modern time/Future X Men.

When things go to 73 Xavier and Magneto will take over regardless whos the traveler. Until we know the means of time travel there is no way to determine who it is.

Theres tons of potential for carnage with her. Same with everyone else if they actually show them doing **** this time. Im excited for the whole thing and for the first time Wolverine can actually be shown slicing and dicing properly.

Hope Storm is confirmed soon.

It would be if you didn't constantly put down this movie with every bit of news we get. Seriously, it's getting old.

Hugh Jackman's one of the biggest stars on the planet playing one of the most popular superheroes on the same. And frankly we're damn lucky to have him. They're not going to 'minimize' anything Wolverine-related, and as long as Hugh has enthusiasm for playing the character they'd be crazy to do so.

Nicely put. Still don't understand all the hate for Wolverine. Days of Future Past wouldn't be the same without him nor would any other X-Men epic.
