99.99% sure JP's just being sarcastic.

Didn't he also say in another interview that both Wolverine and First Class are new starting points (or something to that effect)?

I think though that the trouble with this scenario is that the dark!future in DoFP can't really link up to whatever sequel in the present there might be in the works. By the end of DoFP that dark!future either ceases to exist altogether, or it just goes on while an alternate timeline without Sentinels is created by changing the past. So in either scenario, there's no flow from DoFP!future to X5!future, and the characters we meet in X5 will not really be the same characters as in DoFP, but more like their alternate versions.

I'd think that if they did want to introduce (or re-introduce) the characters for the sequels set in the present, Wolverine would be a more logical choice. Seeing that it's set after X3 and particularly if Wolverine himself is set to appear in those future sequels as well.

JP,I hope you're joking. First Class was equal to X Men 2.

Xmen first class explored the relationship between charles and eric and eric wanting his revenge on shaw which i personally think it was done very well, very engaging stuff, but the other Mutants maybe didn't get enough to do but its was still a great film =)

X-men 2 is a great film also though =)

Vastly superior pretty much describes my feelings for X2 compared to First Class But I still appreciated what Bryan, Vaughn et al did with that movie.

And when did people stop getting sarcasm on these boards. Oy! LOL

Default Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 1

Let's get some facts here.Bryan Singer Is major reason there has been an X-men movie and film series off the ground.For those who wanted early 2000's films to be exactly like 2010's films and for X-men to be exactly like the Avengers that's never going to happen.Bryan made X-men for 75 Million(hell fox gave FF more money In 2005 than they gave
X-Men) and 110 Million for X2.X-men deals with darker and more serious themes than Avengers ever will.The reason for so many years X-men was the best selling Comic Book
was because of characters.X-Men revived the genre after It was nearly killed by the Batman & Robin Fisaco.As Mark Millar said X-Men came out 3 years after that.Many were surprised a comic book film would begain with a scene In The holcaust yet that was something taken from Comics.Kevin feige himself said most important marvel films to where they are today were first X-Men and First Iron Man.He should know.He came to work fro marvel after working on first X-Men for Lauren Shueller Donnor.

Many experts In genre and critics have called X2 one of top 10 best Comic Book movies ever.Millar whose work marvel based the avengers on has called X2 one of best comic book films ever.Of course now that's he's consulant for Fox marvel films some will dismiss him even thought the Marvel Studios films as they exsist wouldn't be possable If It wasn't for his work on the Ultimates.

For those who love First Class I hate to tell people but much of that was Bryan.The version made come mostly from him.He turned It from mostly a teen film written by the producer of gossip girl to origin of Xavier and Magneto.It was his idea to place It In early 1960's In cold war setting and climax In the backdrop of Cuban Missile crisis.
He picked the characters used.I personally don't understand why people just don't ignore origins so called Emma frost.First Class had a much better version of classic Emma
Frost.He may not have been able to direct It but he was hands on producer who during bulk of filming In London was on set every day.Sometimes directors who back out get producer's credit but really don't have much to do with film.Prime example of this Is Tim Burton on Batman forever.Bryan was different.Very hands on.Even taking part In Interviews for first Class.Bryan and Matthew Vaughn both deserve credit for what we got.Special credit should go to Lauren Shueller Donnor and Simon Kinberg as well.Lauren for helping to get bryan back to X-Men.Both of them for suggesting Hellfire club as villains.and Kinberg for helping to get vaughn the director's job.

People also tend to forget Bryan got the X-Men job thanks to doing the Usual suspects.A low buget film than became a modest box office hit that a lot of people started copying or parodying.Those who didn't like Superman returns,and to be honest I am not among them,keep saying all his films suck or he shouldn't be allowed near a big budget
film again.They need to get over It.They are getting a non-Singer superman film later this year.His work on X-Men helped get the genre where It Is now.And his style defently Influenced Jon Favrau on Iron Man and Chris Nolan on batman.He tried to make X-Men work as a somewhat plausable world on film even though X-Men Is more fantasy based
than Iron man 1 and 2,or dark Knight trilogy.

X2 and first Class the 2 most well received X-Men films both came from him.Plus the best received one apart from them was X-Men.

I feel like those who think First Class have right to that oporion even though
a lot of people disagree with that and consider X2 the best.The problem Is If they like First Class they have to give Bryan some of the credit for film.

That's how most would rank them.Many would rank the Last Stand bellow first 2 films and
First Class.Origins would always be ranked dead last.

Well, hopefully the end of DoFP makes it perfectly clear what timelines remain and what versions of which characters exist. It can't lead into an X5 unless there is something at the end that sets up the sequel.

What seems clear to me is that people want Famke and James back as Jean/Phoenix and Cyclops as well as the return of Nightcrawler and other fan favourites.

Unless you're the one calling "action", your contributions, great as they may be, OBVIOUSLY don't matter.
