Since it's mind transfer, I guess Logan won't have the adamantium, which will be interesting.
I love Logan. Logan, Jean and Kitty are my favorite X-Men. But, the films have become too much about Logan. He is at the center of everything. He was the lead in each of the first three films (and Scott got walked all over because of it) and he has two solo films. There has only been 6 of these films.

They have chosen their method of time travel. They could have made it something that allowed for someone else to be the lead. They chose not to.

Are there any detailed descriptions of the costumes and looks of any of the characters from the comic-con footage?

i do completely agree with you, if they knew that they were going in this direction with the movie then yes I can say yes.

because logan was the smartest and best chocie for a time traveler with an ageless mutant who is very popular and a character the audience has got to know and feel for past 13 years

I too am feeling a bit drained with Wolverine constantly being the center of attention. It would be one thing if he simply acted as the cataylst because of his popularity for the mainstream audience, but each time he's the center of attention, he becomes the primary plot point (X1 was about his memory lost, X2 was about his past and Stryker, and X3 was about him and Jean). I would have much preferred Kitty being sent back--like the comics--so there could be a change of structure other than the newly introduced time travel elements and mushing of the two casts.

you guys do realize it will be different

x men 1 and 2 were dominated by him because he had to learn his history he knows his history he had an origin film too not much left to delve in with him time for him to just be wolverine and kicking some sentinel butt

i am sure he will have a major role but not #1

Because in Singer's/Ratner's timeline Xavier "died"(Transfered his mind to another body), Rogue lost her powers, etc....In this film however, Professor X is still alive and in his own body, I'm assuming Rogue has her powers.

So I thought it would make more sense if this film took place in an alternate timeline that uses the same actors from Singer's films, but it's not necessarily the same timeline from his films. Right? So the Old Xavier from this film isn't necessarily the same Xavier from Singer's previous films? They're both from two separate universes? Otherwise I don't undertand how Xavier still has his body.


Can someone please help me with this? Does this film take place in the same cinematic universe as The X-Men Trilogy? Or is it a seperate universe that just uses the same actors?


So basically you have The X-Men trilogy which is it's own cinematic universe/timeline. Than you have First Class/DOFP which are apart of another universe/timeline. Or do all these films take place in the same universe/timeline?
honestly if this was an "alternate" timeline then Scott, Jean, Mystique and Beast would be in the "future." I think it's safe to say that this film is set (years)after The Last Stand. We can hope that the fates of Beast and maybe Raven will be addressed.

I do hope that is the case, as excited as I am for this movie it would suck if it turns out that way.

I wonder if this film would be the same, if Vaughn hadn't left.

He HAD to learn his history? The movies are called X-men, not Wolverine and friends. They've made it too much about him. He had his own movie, and it sucked.

probably a little bit, singer has his writers and vaughn has his

but its possible we will have a mixture of both seeing as vaughn started out on the script and then it went to singer

''wolverine is the only one who could travel back ''

question. did they first writte the concept that the mind travels back to their young body or did they first decide that wolverine will travel back? the answer is obvious. they knew from the second they started writting this movie that Hugh Jackman will be the time traveler. ok? OK? so please stop defending Fox and their stupid Wolverine obsession. it doesnt need to make sense because this was not a creative choice. this was a business choice. they wrotte the time travel concept with Wolverine in mind. a character that has his second solo movie in 2013.

thank you FOX

A bit of both, i would imagine. Kitty doesn't exist in the 70s so it couldn't be her mind travelling back, but they have somehow involved her in the process so they haven't ignored the comic altogether.

Xavier has to have a part in doing it also, id be very surprised if he doesn't

every other x men were established and been at the school for years

storm,jean,cyclops were established heroes

wolverine was the character we saw the film through same as rogue because they were new and outsiders

Jean didnt do anything of worth in the first movie,she did Cerebro but not much at all. Her parrts expanded as the movies continued so I wouldnt say she has as much screentime as Logan by a longshot,the 3rd ,movie was all about Jean but Logan played a big part. Storm,Jean, and Cyclops were established when the movie started but it still was no fleshing out of the character we were just told that they were his first students but we were still getting introduced to them just as we did Wolverine and Rogue,but the latter just got more of and introduction.

jackman has had a fair amount of breaks from filming so he probably won't steal the story

The first 2 films aren't the problem. Those always made sense, though Scott still took it on the chin. It is the Last Stand and on that I feel is simply taking it way too far.

Yeah, they really didn't have to do it this way though.

we knew very little about jean in X1 and X2, we just knew she was someone wolverine fancied and that she was with scott, by the 3rd she was given an origin and become wolverines love interest but overall there was no character there

we still know way more about wolverine then we do jean
