Probably because everything in the movie was happening so fast, they had to keep up with the pace of the movie.

An ending narration just like in X2.

I'm expecting a similar fight scene to appear in DoFP instead, so let's hope they don't let us down this time.
Emma Frost needs to come back then, if they are going to do a psychic battle. She's the only psychic of the Brotherhood unless they introduced a new one.

Honestly? Nothing, when their perception is so skewed that they have to use absurd, biased hyperbole to decry even solid parts of a film that they don't like. I discuss what people give me to discuss. If what they give me is ridiculous statements about the quality of a film, that's what I will discuss.

Oh come on. I enjoyed X3 and, at the time, found it exciting and dramatic but it did have some very weak moments.
It had a few very weak moments. I said very clearly, it has legitimate flaws. But the point is, anytime that anyone says ANYTHING about X3 on here, someone inevitably pipes up with some hyperbolic statement akin to "Yeah, that part of X3 was crap too". It doesn't matter what portion of the film, what actor, what part of the production, etc. It's absurd.

Why do you think they went to the trouble of getting Bryan Singer back
on board the franchise?
I would imagine for several reasons: Because FIRST CLASS didn't clean up quite the way they wanted it to, which is probably part of the reason we're getting DAYS OF FUTURE PAST in the first place. Because Matthew Vaughn left the project to take a shot at directing STAR WARS, and to work on Mark Milliar's other project. And because this whole franchise (including the WOLVERINE films) is based off of/stems from the two films Singer created, and he's quite familiar with it and the characters and actors in it, in terms of both the original X-Men franchise and FIRST CLASS, which he helped develop. In that regard, it was a no brainer, and plenty of fans speculated that this would be what would happen after Vaughn left.

For all the faults that Ratner had in X3, the one thing he did right was not using that Shakespeare seen for the theatrical release! Oy!

And I liked that they didn't show the kissing scene of Bobby and Kitty.

X3's passable sure but for reducing complex characters to soap opera fodder and forcing arbitrary deaths to make it seem 'final' it gets a big black mark against it.

I actually just finished watching X3. Hadn't popped it in the Blu-ray player for awhile.

Still enjoy it. Yes there are a few moments of weak dialogue.

Wolverine: "I know how you feel. When Jean died..."

Cyclops: "I said don't don't."

Overall, I still enjoy the movie...more so than X1, but not as much as X2.

IMHO, a worthy entry into the franchise.

Brian just tweeted a pic with Dan Harris and Mike Dougherty aka his X2 writers. This was pretty much my dream team for the writing team for DOFP. I hope that's their little secret thing!

I'm different in that I could NOT care less about the character and most of the DC characters, actually.

(I can't wait til this new Superman film will get the same treatment from fans as SR. Afterall it's a Zack Snyder directed film. Sure the fans are backing the film now and it's winning in polls on various sites but that backlash always follows.)

Oh, that was... unexpected, actually. I thought he parted ways with those two after the SR debacle.

EDIT: Wait, so they've written nothing but two crappy little things in the last seven years? Why bring them back in...

So they worked on Superman Returns...but are people forgetting that these two ALSO worked on X2? Arguably the highlight of the franchise so far?

Would people prefer we go back to X3 type story telling?

Based on their previous work, I'm more inclined to think David Hayter had more to do with it then they did.

Superman Returns is not a bad movie. It's just not the kind of superman movie that general public expected.

I thought X-men 3 was the best in the series, only thig that killed it was Killing the leaders of the X-men Xavier Cyclops and Jean.

The Leaders of the X-men!!!! That killed it, other than that it is one of the best mavel movies ever made.

I like the story of the cure and the acting and action. But Brett Ratner screwed it over.

I think X-men DOFP is going to top it and all the others.

Wow, that never once occurred to me. But it does make sense, considering they're trying to build an MCU-style X-Men Universe...

I certainly hope the 'secret thing' is an X4. That would be amazing to see.

I really have the feeling it could be the case.

Lauren and Singer will want a script for Fox, right? so this is a strong chance

Guys, send Bryan a tweet mentioning X-men 4, we should show him we want it

Interesting. Either they are doing some rewrites on DoFP or they are beginning to work on an X4.

No one can deny that X2 has the best writing, best character moments, best acting, best action scenes and most balanced use of screentime (even though it's not perfect, with Cyclops missing for most of the movie and then blubbing like an idiot on the X-jet!). Overall, though, it's easily the most consistent and well thought-out of the series.

I think the "secret thing" is simply a re-working on DOFP.
