    i wonder how much better quicksilver could be becuase Smallville kind of showed what it would look like much of the time and slowing down clark kent when he was running

    yeah, I forgot Pietro. Im really curious too, mainly because I think this will be the very first time this power will be used in a really BIG way on the big screen.

    And with the slow motion and Singer great treatment to the powers and the new characters, I have the feeling that Pietro will steal the show in the 70's, at least regarding the young mutants.

    Magneto will probably have the most epic stuff in the 70's, and then I think he will be followed by Quicksilver.

    I'm very excited to see everything. We know Bobby's icing up and it's hinted he'll be sliding too. Can't get enough of Iceman! Or the rest of the characters we've already seen - like Colossus looking like a badass and being one and Storm trumping her tornado display from X2. Beast looks the best he ever has and I really want to see him move like Beast should - we only got that a tiny bit in FC. Mystique's looking incredible too, and can't wait to see her all agile and super flexible again! I hope her voice is at least slightly electronic! Of the new characters, I want to see Blink's power display, but am stoked to see what Sunspot looks like when he's all black and fiery. Quicksilver in slow-mo should be great! I'm always ready for some Magneto action, future and past! Oh, and since Havok seemingly doesn't need his containment suit, it'll be interesting to see his power display assuming he can now control it. Speaking of Havok, there should be some nice mutant cameos in the mutant military like what looks like a fella who could be Berzerker. 'Should be some great cameos in the future, too. I'm excited about them and their various powers... as I said, I'm excited to see everything!

    I don't really think so. He got lucky, as stray rays were also flung around, too, I think.

    No he had gadget that beast made for him then in the final battle it broke or something and he had to take it off then he did that spinny thing he knows how to do to hit angel with it

    sounds like singer has given lucas till creative freedom to do his powers how he wants so you could take it that he must be able to control his powers now

    The Last Stand is about 2003, not 2013. Otherwise all characters would be old as hell, 20+ years older than they look in X3. Even if it's in 2003, they already are 10 years older, than they look. Emma Frost likes to look young, but Moira and plastic surgeries? I know in comic they always look young, but in reality... , Storm would be nearly 70 in 2023.
    DOFP is in 2013.
    2020 is the year when Trask Industries announces Mark X.

    Scene after credits in The Wolverine, it's about 3-4 years after TLS. Why Xavier and Eric need Logan 6 year before 2013 events? They have to know something wasn't told in TV.

    We know the future takes place around ten years in the future, dating it loosely around 2023. The timeline of the films (especially since FC is the first film to cement itself in an exact year) has always been unclear. But we're made to think that each of the original trilogy films takes place around the time they're released. It's the same with TW. The future in DoFP apparently takes place around ten years after the events of TW. So, it seems Logan's been working with Eric and Charles for, well, ten years before we see them on-screen again. There won't be a "present" period in the film, and they're only time traveling back to one year, 1973. It's simple.

    I am still very uncomfortable with the 2023 date because of the ages it would make Professor X and Magneto.

    It's time we saw Rogue let loose with her powers. Four movies in and still only glimpses and Magneto forcing her to use them.

    I love Kitty. Hopefully she gets good action bits. Also Storm should be a powerhouse and use what mother nature gave her. Lol

    X-Men: The Last Stand CANNOT take place in 2003. The movie released in 2006, and was labeled "In the not too distant future"

    You can't take ages literally. You are talking about a source material where Kitty Pryde should be in her 50's, but is still treated as someone in her 20's.

    The Wolverine is a year after X-Men: The Last Stand, and is not set anywhere earlier than 2013. If 2023 is to be believed, that would place The Wolverine in 2014. 9 years before Days Of Future Past, which is 10 years after X-Men: The Last Stand, which would then be 2013.

    Magneto and Xavier recruited Logan to help battle against the growing Sentinel threat. Xavier and Magneto didn't recruit him to go back in time. They recruited him to fight the Sentinel threat, the Sentinels however, won, leading to the apocalyptic future we will have in the movie.

    Especially when considering the source material the movies are based upon is FAR worse for aging than the movies even come a fraction of the way of achieving.

    Jean Grey born in 1956?

    Yea, okay. Even back when that dating made more sense, that still had her at SEVEN YEARS OLD when she joined Xavier's school in X-Men #1.

    I look forward to seeing Storm and Bobby UNLEASHED against the Sentinels. Blink and Quicksilver have me the most curious though. I'm interested in how their powers are translated on screen.

    And I've read this scenario brought up before so let's assume the ending of the film has Wolverine waking up in the mansion to a Sentinel-free world and standing in front of him are the current X-Men (throw in Jean, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Angel, and old Beast for some fun). Does this mean the X-Men never met Bishop, Blink, Sunspot, and Warpath? Or will Charles somehow make all the main cast of the future retain their memories? I'd be disappointed if these four characters are meant to only show up in one film.

    I am, too. I'm also curious to see how they reinterpret Havok's energy/plasma blasts. Till is a big X-Men fan, and it sounds like he wasn't too happy with Havok's "hoola hoops" in First Class. Fortunately, it sounds like they have remedied that, giving Till the freedom to reinterpret Havok's powers as he and fans have come to know them otherwise.

    I hope! But at the same time, I hope it's also a natural progression from what we saw in FC. A color tweak, perhaps, and driven from the arms/wrists/hands.

    I don't think havok will have a big role. I have suspecion that Wolverine Is around Havok's
    platoon when the mindswitch happens.
