Default Who Will Face Off?

We know that eventually everyone will fight Apocalypse...hopefully.

But before that happens who will do battle?

I was thinking that many of the characters could potentially square off against Psylocke. If Nightcrawler uses swords in this film he and Psylocke should definitely do battle. I was also thinking that she and Mystique would be a great match up. Then another match up could be Jean vs Psylocke on the Astral Plane. We did see Singer and Sophie doing archery maybe a fight could take place in the Astral Plane with a bow & a sword or something.

I also imagined Scott and Alex back to back as Storm and Archangel circle them in the sky above. I thought about having Jubilee stand with them but it would throw off the whole brother thing.

What other possible match ups do you think could or would happen?

Jean and Cyclops vs Storm (going by concept art)
Jean and Nightcrawler vs Psylocke
Quicksilver and Mystique vs Magneto
Nightcrawler and Beast vs. Archangel

Don't see where Jubilee could fit.

Tell me more about your Mystique vs Professor X battle because I don't see it personally with him having mental abilities and her fighting/shape-shifting. Not knocking it, just seriously curious as to why you decided on those two going head to head.

Well he'll have mental abilities towards anyone he fights. I should specify that I think Jean would be going back and forth with Mystique and Beast vs Prof X and Magneto.

I figured with Mystique she has some sort of adopted sibling bond with him as opposed to Beast and the others.

Mystique &/or Nightcrawler(swords) vs Psylocke
Beast in X-Jet vs Angel
Cyclops & Jean vs Storm

Magneto will fight Apocalypse and get the ***** kicked out of him. Everyone will fight Apocalypse. And then Magneto will come to just in time to finish the fight.

Don't see Quicksilver or Jubilee fighting anyone.

Read it on Wikipedia, but apparently Apocalypse gets ripped in half by Magneto in a comic. So I'm guessing that after the X-Men weaken Apocalypse, but still get beat, a battered Magneto manages to somehow rip Apocalypse in half.

Yeah, I have that comic. He's fighting alongside Nate Grey against Apocalypse.

Heres the panel

I really want to watch a battle between Jean Grey and Charles, like the battle in the X-Men: Evolution in the Apocalypse episode.

I think that bit of production art that got out makes me hope to see Jean go Phoenix on Apocalypse. Not saying that should be why he loses, but visually it would be spectacular.

I think one on one battle would be dumb and would require a ton of suspension of belief. The X-men to me are a team and, really, they need teamwork to be effective. There are far too many glass canons on the X-men Squad to make a one on one battle competitive. I mean Cyclops is either one shotting everyone or they're gonna nerf his competency to point his eyes at at target. I mean really. The teamwork in FC and DOFP was incredible and thats when the fight scenes are the best. Even TLS had some sweet team fights. I still think we you can have some interesting one on ones (Nightcrawler VS Archangel) but for the most part I'll past.

That was not Ratner who kills Scott Jean etc but Kinberg. He is the only responsible of X3's f**** script

Cyclops/Jean vs Storm is sure.
Havok/Jubilee vs Psylocke.
Beast/Kurt vs Angel.
Mystique/Quiksilver vs Magneto. I think Peter want to know if Erik is his dad and Raven want him to come back, thats why they join together for the battle.

Apo vs all x-men as Oscar said.

Marsden was also busy filming Singer's Superman film at the time which was a big factor.

It's Marsden's fault too. Filming Superman and X3 at the same time, what problem ??
McKellen was filming Da Vinci Code and X3 at the same period. He has a big role in two films.

It's obvious the production caters to some cast members more than others. McKellen's a bigger star and character by the time the first two movies came out. Unfortunately for Marsden, he (and his character) didn't catch on.

X3 was also rushed into production.

I keep picturing a mystique/Jean vs. Psylocke battle. One will distract/fight her mentally while the other one fights her physically.

I think it may go down like this:



Or they could get inspired and have their astral projections battle each other. That would be a pleasant surprise.
