Thing people keep forgetting Is APocalypse will have followers.

I can easily see Magneto filling the sinster role In AOA as far as being with Apocalypse as film begins and later betreys him.With SInster it was creating X-Man here I am sure after being with Apocalypse he will add in some fashion Xavier but it won't be because he suddenly believes Xavier is right.With Kinberg's talk of Magneto and Mystique becoming realigned I won't be surprised if she Is working with Apocalypse and both her and magneto ultimly betrey Apocalypse.

Apart from magneto i am pretty sure brainwashed wolverine will be horseman and the other 2 will be characters included for power displays.

Since SInger has mentioned Deadpool I think this could be film which uses him again.Then question comes whose side is quicksilver on.Will they try to include the X-Men version of Scarlett witch.Will they try to Include nightcrawler or not.

Beast needs some real payoff since Kinberg has talked about moving him more to kelsey grammer Version.

If they want to have some dramatic event to cause Xavier going bald i can see them
have xavier tryint to free wolverine from Apocalypse's control.

I think Singer really sort of boxed himself in with DOFP. It was supposed to fix all the continuity, but now he has a new mess on his hands with two casts forty-fifty years apart, and he's already shown us how it ends (everyone fine at Xavier's school in 2023). The only option they have is to do time travel again, but how many times in a row is that going to be accepted? If it's so easy to time travel, why don't they just do it whenever a problem comes up?

I liked DOFP and am excited for Apocalypse, but I have a feeling they may have screwed the pooch as far as the future of the franchise. Everyone likes Fassbender and McAvoy, but everyone wants to see the OT, too.

They're stuck with Fassbender and McAvoy, since they're contracted, so they can't set Apocalypse after 2023, which would make the most sense story-wise.

We don't see Magneto and Mystique in the 2023 happy ending, so things may not end so well for them.

Well, I don't put as much stock in that because they're the "bad guys" and wouldn't be hanging around the school anyway. All we can assume is that Magneto is not reconciled like he was in the apocalyptic 2023. I wouldn't say he's necessarily dead.

EDIT: I've got it! They'll send young Xavier and Magneto to the 2023 timeline! Hey, it could work...right?

Does Wolverine even make sense? It's wont be the Wolverine from the OT and it wont be the Wolverine from the present. Do we really want to follow a Wolverine we know pretty much dies in the future? Only way OT Wolverine taking over this Wolverine works is if we stay unconnected to this Wolverine.

Wolverine only makes sense to tell us how he got his adamantium(if he even has it) or to introduce other characters, like Sabretooth, into the new timeline.

They should have made FC cast as flashbacks only. Because of the things you mentioned, I don't want to see another film take place in the past. Movie should have been set in present time with some plot relevant flashbacks with the FC cast.

They're not going to bring an actress like Lawrence back for a third movie and relegate her to only being in flashbacks. That's ridiculous.

For one thing, it has never been done, so it could be exciting for some. And its really the only way to bring back some of the OT cast without doing another time-travel.

Well Fassbender and McAvoy only has 1 film left in their contract.

They're in a very interesting situation, definitely. I for one can't wait to see how it plays out.

But they can set-up Apocalypse as a returning villain who could reappear in 2023
(or realistically any time after circa 2000. We've established they look like the OT cast from then)

Then don't bring her back at all. Actresses should not dictate where the story goes.

I can see what people are saying when they won't miss out on a opportunity to expose Jennifer Lawrence, but apart from maybe being a horseman, and a silent assassin with OT, I think they need to rest mystique a tiny bit..... Let someone else have a go.

Yeah I agree. I wouldn't mind if she's a member of the X-Men like Storm or Jean Grey or Rogue or Psylocke, but she's a villain from the get-go.

I'm happy to see Famke is first in the voting, she did a great job in the 5 films she had appeared as Jean Grey. I hope to see her again in a main role not just cameos. She is our...Phoenix!

If she comes back again, she better get a full role. LOL.

Its crazy to think that we got see Jean back to back in two years and yet in both films, she was also there for like 12 minutes. 2 minutes from DOFP and 10 minutes in The Wolverine.

I'd would rather they take the opportunity to recast...anyone the original characters would be way younger now.

I'd rather they focus more on the First Class actors (and Jackman). That's where the most interesting stuff has been happening for the last few films.

And what happened in the future period in DOFP wasn't interesting enough?

It was for one film, but even in DoFP the most interesting stuff was happening in 1973.

lets be honest here the OT cast all well past their prime famke is almost 50 for god sakes

i love them too but best case scenario is keep it in first class era so we can keep fassbender,hoult,mcavoy,and lawrence and then cast younger storm,cyclops,and jean

Funny how some want to dismiss OT cast.

We don't know how many of FC cast Is even willing to stick around after
Apocalypse.

Yeah Famke turns 49 later this year.But she looks great.The taken films.The wolverine and DOFP appearances.Hemlock grove on Netflix.Her carrere Is at it's hottest right now.

After Apocalypse the only film we know for sure is happening Is Wolverine Solo
film.Anything else is just talk for right now.

We know for fact some OT cast will be In Apocalypse.Simon Kinberg announced that.It's a question of who exactly that Is besides Hugh jackman and how many.

Tom Cruise Is 51 and doing another Mission Impossible film.

Look at ages of those In Expendables.

The Original Cast will return for star wars Episode VII.Harrison Ford Is 72
and will have major role In film.

Robert Downey JR Is 49 and doing second avengers and is signed for third film.

Samuel L jackson Is In his 60's and playing Nick Fury.

Michael Douglas Is nearly 70 and playing Henry Pym In Ant-Man.He's neary the age of Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen.

Arnold Is playing the terminator and he's how old?

Eddie Muphy Is going to be doing another Beverly Hilly Cop film.

With the erasing of Non-FC films In DOFP my assumination was that was end of OT Cast apart from jackman.That wasn't because that's what I wanted
but that's what the wrting on the wall hinted at.Well by their words the original cast Isn't done yet.

With the possable exception of Magneto the characters were done better with OT actors In my oporion.

The idea of this thread has never been to start a FC-OT cast debate.
