XMDOFP is too big of an event to not have a panel at the SDCC. Good call Singer.

yeah, Fox isnt playing this time. Im starting to feel proud of them

and with all the hype and all, I wonder if it will end being the highest comic movie next year

Amazing Spiderman 2 will be huge, but if DOFP ends bigger than that, man... it will be a great feeling

only time will tell

Big surprise that Fox is trying to emulate the success of The Avengers. Fox is motivated by profit..

exactly.

Im glad Avengers happened, it has pushed these other studios to step their games up.

Now, its Fox's turn, and I cant be more happy about it.

DOFP is next team movie after Avengers, so it definetly will take advantage of its success.

I guess we can expect a Superbowl spot next year too

That's what Fox's blockbusters tend to appeal to. That's how they make their money, and that's how they differ from other movie studios. Other studios use the strategy of actually trying to produce a good movie to make money far more often than Fox does.

It's like if Storm had died and the camera focused on her cape or Wolverine died and we get a shot of an empty tank top. There's no emotional significance to it, it's just a blatant reference to a character we only saw die abotu 1 minute ago. It's entirely empty.

Sometimes you post things that I know are not intentionally meant to be inspired but they just bring a smile to my face. Right on.

And as JP said...the funeral felt heavy-handed to me. Storm's eulogy irritated me because it felt...I dunno...forced? They said that the day they filmed it was Halle Berry's birthday and she was having a hard time getting into the emotional zone because...well, she was so happy.

No Rothman. They should have axed him years ago. The studio is now making smarter decisions and giving Singer a bigger sandbox to play in.

I can't wait to see how this all pans out myself.

The second pic is photo-shopped. Look at Kitty's face: it's phasing in and out of our space time continuum. LOL

I prefer the combination of characters in the first photo as well. In fact, comparing these two photos helped me figure out what I feel has been missing since X3 in these films: NOT ENOUGH ADULTS.

Think about it: With the deletion of Jean, Scott and Xavier in X3, it's just felt like mutant kids going on a field trip with a couple of the teachers. First Class really felt even more juvenile. I just hope that somehow DoFP can provide more of a balance with mature mutant adults taking the lead and not the teeny boppers.

That's a great photo of the core 4 and Xavier.






Yeah, and that other photo blows.

Who is the production designer this time around? I hope this time they clear up which room is what because it was confusing to see the infirmary was in a different location in TLS.

I agree with this. The X-Kids, the separate X B-teams & the alternative X-Force type characters are great to watch and a big part of the Universe but the core is your current adult leading X-Men bringing the 1st & 2nd gen X-Men together & leading the vision of the school..Xavier, Cyclops, Beast, Wolverine (yes! lol), Storm. Get these characters right first and then the others are just like the most awesome bonus you can possibly have.

Nope.John Myhre Is back.Bryan announced It on twitter.Guy dyas hasn't done a film with Bryan since Superman returns.This Is first time a production designer has done more than 1 X-Men film.All the others have been different.

It's very good Idea getting the designer who created the sub-basement for films In X-Men 1 back to do early version of It for DOFP

That's pretty much how all studios handle action blockbusters.

There had better be flying characters here! Real flying!
for the first two movies, Singer made a big deal about limiting the "flying" aspect to certain characters-- Magneto clearly levitated via the metal on his boots or a big metal disc, and Storm mostly just levitated herself on a pocket of air. I remember in particular he made a snarky "witches of eastwick" comment about the prospect of flying Rogue and aerial combat--

But now, especially after Superman Returns, there's no excuse! none!

There had better be flying characters! Yes, I said it!

Why? Actors have good and bad days "at work" just like the rest of us. It's too bad too, she did a brilliant job with the emotional breakdown at Jean Grey's home (after Xavier's death).

Maybe they should've filmed both scenes back to back to keep everyone "in the moment".

Agreed! Might be useful when you're taking out Sentinels also.

Well, if Storm is not in this film, who else is there to fly? I doubt Angel is going to be cast and everyone else on the X-Team will be running around as fast as their short little legs can carry them.

That's why I think the Sentinel vs. X-Men battle scenes might be dripping with lame. Where's "the air-game"?
