    The reason I can't stand them isn't because they are cheesy, it's because they were stolen. I can't stand "buzzwords," which is what they are. "Never again" is a slogan for chrissake. Same thing with "don't ask don't tell" and anything with pride in it, they have political connotations now. I understand that the x-men are supposed to have parallels with minority rights, but please, keep them as parellels. Don't take stuff that's already used. Using buzzwords is just cheap writing. It's my biggest complaint about FC, it is filled with half-baked, pseudo social parellels, and instead of actually exhibiting them, it just talks about them.

    Singer used parallels to gay rights also. But he didn't do it in a cheap way, like saying mutant pride and don't ask don't tell, again political buzzwords. He depicted it by having a scene where Bobby "comes out" to his parents. That's what I would rather see in a movie.

    Hmmm it's pretty standard for the studio to control release of information. The studio has a specific marketing/pr plan and the release of casting info ties into that so it should be Fox that decides when info is released (it's their product after all).

    There's no reason an actor should take it upon himself to decide when casting announcements should be made and generally only bigger stars make these gaffes because they know they won't be replaced. You'll almost never see a mid level star or no namer make that kind of mistake because they're nervous about breaking their non-disclosure agreements.

    Indeed, but Patrick Stewart's response to questions was a bit OTT, especially when Bryan Singer had already said on Twitter he was on board and Patrick himself had blurted all that stuff out at a convention previously.

    Patrick could have said in this latest interview: "I can't really comment, except to say Twentieth Century Fox and Bryan Singer have been in touch, so we'll have to see." Instead he went rambling on about not knowing anything, it was like going too far in the other direction.

    Do we know if they are Keeping Jones as Emma Frost or are they going to recast her. She was my only casting compliant.

    No. We don't know.

    Singer only mentioned: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult.

    Then it emerged that Hugh Jackman was in talks.

    That's it. So far. No other actors confirmed as being on board, or in talks or negotiations, or any other permutation of any form of involvement.

    I highly doubt Singer recast anyone from FC. and either from original trilogy.

    Emma, Moira and co. werent cameos, so would be really shocking to see Bryan recasting any of those roles.

    Any franchise needs continuity at least on the actors, so lets leave that negative idea out of this franchise from now please :)

    I liked that part.

    I hope now of a sudden Logan doesnt become the time traveler. please no, Bryan.

    This is not another Wolverine and his friends movie.

    fingers crossed for a x-girl travelling back.

    Yes it would. Since he is over 100 now but seems to have 'stuck' at about the age of 40, it might be a while before he is grey/white haired. He could look just a little older/rougher in the future setting though.

    Stress can cause white hair as well. A dystopian future seems stressful to me. Just sayin.

    That's really the frustrating thing about this film right now. We were getting really positive news, the revelation of the adaptation of a beloved storyline from the comics, "No leather uniforms" reveal, the return of the now-high profile cast of FC, and the announcement of the return of the two master thesps of what arguably made the trilogy great. Heck even the replacement of Vaughn with Singer was met with much praise (I'm all for it, I just didn't think most other ppl did too. Certainly not fanbiys from a certain site we're not allowed to mention)

    Now with Stewart playing coy about his involvement, we're seeing the good publicity the film was getting into a negative one. I hope they fix this ASAP!

    I remember when First Class started production there were interviews with Bryan early on. And I'm pretty sure he mentioned how casting was going and what the audition process was like. He seemed very hands on with casting.
    So I'm not totally positive that Bryan wasn't involved with who ended up in the roles.

    Like I said, it's possible Bryan was in charge of everyone else. But McAvoy and Fassbender were strictly Vaughn. He picked McAvoy first and then auditioned a bunch of Magnetos with him. In an interview I read, the second after he saw the screentest with Fassbender, he ran to one of the co-script writers, played the tape, and said, "JUST LOOK AT THEM".

    The other actors beyond Charles' and Erik's aren't really standout, but I do know Vaughn was behind Flemming as Azazel. The actor is is "lucky charm". I'd be curious to know who picked Lawrence.

    Id love this movie to be the first 3D x-men sequel.

    We need that extra money to get the biggest x-men movie to date. So Fox will put even more money on future sequels and maybe continue with both casts on two separate series.

    oh, and we need an Interviews Official Thread.

    Anyone wants to create it? :D

    Ill watch it in 2D.

    and if the critics praise the 3D, I'd watch it a second time on 3D.

    I really hope Fox releases this movie on IMAX and 3D. They should make this the biggest x-men movie ever.

    This franchise deserves it. Specially for future sequels.
