Can you give me another option then the current one? Is it that you don't want this trilogy to remain consistent in jumping a decade with each film? Or do you not want the characters that we've been all clamoring for to finally appear? Or is it that you don't think characters like Scott, Jean, Storm, and Nightcrawler deserve proper origins like Xavier, Mystique, Beast and Magneto have received?
I can't wait to see Scott, Jean, Storm and Kurt, among a lot others. And yes, they surely deserve their origin, but that's different from seeing a series of movie with them portrayed by teenagers. I would rather see them as adults and properly done (not like OT).

I have no need to google anything...this movie will feature Jean and Scott joining the X-Men...at what age did they join in the comics?
There's your answer
You "fixed" my post saying I picture the X-Men as adults, not people in general. I told you to google to make sure I'm not the only one.

so you think that Scott and Jean should join the X-Men as adults?

No. I think we've seen Eric's origin twice, in X1 and FC. We didn't have to see him as a teenager an entire movie. X-Men: Magneto Testament is a fantastic story and would've made a great TV movie, but we didn't need to see that in the movies. Scott and Jean don't have a rich origin story like Eric or Ororo. So in her case, I could see flashbacks like Eric's. It was enough for Magneto in both trilogies, it would be enough for her too.

As I previous posted, seeing the X-Men as adults is my expectations. If I had to choose I'd rather see them as adults, not like teenagers. But I'm aware of the way the timeline of the movie works, although a mess.

But again, I would rather see them as adults and I'm not talking about how they joined the team. I'm talking about how I rather see them in a film series.

All four actors are 18-23. They're not little kids.

We've seen Mystique, Beast, Havok, Banshee, and Quicksilver as teens in the last two films. Hardly disastrous.

Flashbacks are seen as lazy writing. One flashback is enough for a film but you want to do three or four flashbacks???
IMO we needed to see Eric's origin to understand why he doesn't trust humans.

So far this is one movie where they will be shown as teens. If they jump ahead by a few years in sequels, the characters will age and grow into young adults in their 20s, like human beings do.

It's like the one time they decide to follow canon and people are complaining

Ok, if you guys prefer to see them portrayed as and by teenagers, that's nothing wrong with that. That's how they joined the team in the comics, that's how they are joining the team in the movies.

I still rather see them like this. A series of movies like that.

Mystique, Havok, Beast as teenagers not disastrous at all. Mystique, Beast, Havok as 40 years old, Scott, Jean, Storm and Kurt as teenagers and about 5 years of difference between the actors... hmmm... don't know about that.

Seen as lazy writing? Where? Tell that to Orange Is The New Black, Lost, Damages, True Detective and so many others...

You realize that in the next film, they'll be older, right? As Duran Man said, that's kinda what human beings do..

You do know the answer for that. To be honest I don't get why you think it's easy to treat me like "the idiot who doesn't realize people get older" than actually argue or have a normal conversation. It's ok, tho.

I made my point pretty clear.

After the spaceship(?) and Nightcrawler announcement, I was expecting more.

There are not going to be 13 yo kids, also since a lot of XMen joined at a young age initially it's not so weird to see it here in the movie. We are getting the Orgins of the characters we wanted, now we're complaining I don't understand. They are young adults learning to hone their powers it's not a big deal they aren't adults because they will grow likeky by the next movie, they won't be teens forever geez.
