    True, it took him forever to learn how to fully ice up

    I hope they get Iceman right in the DoFP I always liked him from the comics as he seemed cocky and arrogant younster but in the films he never seemed that way, far too laid back and quiet for me.

    We shall see I guess.

    I liked Bobby in the films. He was fun without being a *****e, plus he was just a nice guy.

    It's kinda funny that Shawn was on the earlier seasons of Smallville and then Aaron joined the show later on, and he almost got frozen to death in one episode :oldrazz:

    Every time I think of Iceman and ice slides it brings to mind the old Spiderman cartoon with Iceman and Firestar where there were regular ice slides used.

    I hope if they're used on-screen they look good and not stupid. They potentially could look a bit ridiculous if not done right. If they're done at all.

    Yeah the ice slide could look really cartoonish and over the top.

    I also want to see him throws ice of shards!

    Eh, it sounds like the same sort of thing we always hear from actors in these types of franchises. Everyone always claims that this is the best one yet and that their character got to do soooo much.

    I do think that he could get a chance to shine a bit though, since it looks like Iceman, Magneto and Rogue might have their own little action-packed sequence.

    I'd like to see Iceman use his powers really creatively this time around. Something we haven't seen before. One of my favorite little bits in FC was Emma Frost carving a hole the two-way mirror. Sometimes little, novel, ways for characters to use their powers are more interesting IMO.

    But Ashmore's talking about the sets and how his character does stuff, which isn't quite the same as "This is the best one yet". His comments are more objective.

    Plus, you don't hear many actors saying something as bold as "He's pretty much the only one who can get this right".

    Yes, very promising. Even if there weren't ice slides, there'll probably be something else impressive. Also, I'd like him to at least once knock someone out with an ice fist.

    Saw your signature. What the hell did Whedon say about those movies? Getting angry already.

    ToD
    ESB

    He can go f**k himself, as far as I'm concerned.

    And, to remain on-topic, an ice slide can be done in a cool, non-ridiculous way. I liked him icing up in X3, but it was underwhelming in the long run.

    Damn. I actually loved ToD's "no gun"-scene and liked how ESB ended, it didn't force me into anything. I like Firefly, Serenity and Avengers, but he's certainly not a f****ng genius. Avengers2 better not suck.

    ...and to remain on-topic on my part too, yes, I don't doubt that it's possible to make a cool, fitting ice slide. My favorite iceman moment is possibly when he puts up the wall in X2. hnngh, we really need him to do something more and break some skulls.

    Sentinel skulls!

    They can use the slide when Bobby (and possibly someone else) falls from a great height and uses it to not only save himself, but to actually get back on his feet (so to speak) and make a badass comeback.

    This film will be leagues ahead of the OT in terms of action I think. Bigger set-pieces are just much cheaper to do now, and the budget for this seems like it will dwarf what Singer had to work with before. I'm expecting some big things, and I can't think of anyone better for unique set-pieces than Singer.

    In short, Ice-slides baby.

    I was expecting something heinous, but his comments really aren't that bad. I've read before how much he loved ESB anyway.

    Excellent!

    I hope this means:

    1) him fully iced up (more like my avatar than the X3 style) during all combat and also stays iced up for say 5/10 mins after. Looks great when he's just walking around like that during normal scenes (in the comics at least)

    2) ice slides as his method of movement during combat and non-combat scenes (ie just getting somewhere fast)

    3) regular use of good ranged ice attacks & ice melee weapons

    4) freezing an enemy in place :woot:

    chances are he will only be in ice form during combat, i don't think ice form will count strongly as Ashmores face time, esp if they replicate this look

    But that's how would look frozen costume.
    Can't imagine frozen black costume as white ice.

    He's just starting to frost over a bit. That should just be the start of the transofrmation. ;)

    Tbh singer may wanna stick to that look from X3 ice form, just because something looks a certain way in the comic doesn't mean it will translate that way in a movie

    You have to think of the factors
