    There stands good chance that we may get another first class film set in the 80s at some point with cyclops and jean, i honestly wouldn't rule it out

    It has an impressive cast to waste

    But at the same time i also wouldn't be surprised if we got an Xmen 4 after DOFP

    I think there might be a film set in the 80s with Apocalypse as the villain. I can't see another X-Men movie with Stewart and Mckellan. They will just be too old to play those characters.

    I think if it s a cameo like Thanos it works. He is a cool villain, but I would rather him get a whole story to himself with his horseman and Sinster.

    Patrick Stewart will always be the best Professor X but I think its better that they give him a proper send-off than to just appear in every X-Men movie and have the same role over and over again.

    At this point, a X-Men 4/5 movie has more potential for success. I don't think FOX would make another First Class movie just to feature the "talented cast" of FC and introduce the younger version of Cyke, Ororo and Jean. They already released a First Class movie before and it didn't get a lot of money. I don't think they would want to go in that route again.

    Maybe the next "X-Men" movie will dare to be something other than being just "X4" or "FC2"

    Like this one.

    Technically speaking, they never called The Last Stand X3.

    when fans use X3 or X4, they are just codenames. It doesnt mean we want the movies to be called like that.

    The thing is to do a fourth movie with full original cast.

    DOFP has 8 original actors, but we still need Marsden, Grammer, Cumming and the rest of the crew.

    See, I hate comments like that.. "Jack Nicholson will always be the best Joker", "Christopher Reeve will always be the best Superman" and so on.

    Not that I have anything against Patrick Stewart, on the contrary, I think he's given us one of the best on-screen interpretations of a comic book character ever, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Up until FC, he was the first and only interpretation of the character, and now we got McAvoy who played a much younger version of the character before he became Professor X. Besides, he plays a younger version of Stewart's version in particular, and so far in just one movie, so it's kinda difficult to compare them.

    So just because he's the first doesn't necessarily mean he'll always be the best. Or, that you'll never find a better actor for the role. This is very close-minded, to say the least. It's like setting yourself up for disappointment when he eventually gets re-cast by saying things like that, no matter who lands the role next.

    No, they just slapped Wolverine's three claws on the X on the poster like that for no reason:

    Well until someone portrayed Professor X better than Patrick Stewart, he will always be the best Professor X.

    And we already had James McAvoy as Professor X (which I really liked) but I still prefer Patrick Stewart's portrayal of FOX.

    And who says about the first one is always the best? I don't prefer the straight to DVD Captain America than Chris Evans.

    This is a different comment than the one you made before, and still it's kinda weird to say, given we only have one version of Professor X so far. Best out of what? Of him and his younger self? I think Steward and McAvoy will be a bit more comparable once DOFP hits, but we were talking about an actor who can replace Steward as an older (and present day) Professor X, or at least that was the impression I was left with.

    We see eye to eye on this one 100%.

    I was talking about the more successful castings of certain characters, the one that got them right from the beginning, like Jack Nicholson as the Joker. Even they are not immune to being challenged by a good re-cast.

    And I also forgot to mention that I prefer Anne Hathaway's portrayal of Catwoman over Michelle Preiffer and Halle Berry.

    Yeah I agree, and fore instance as good as Ledger was, I am sure someone will top him eventually as the Joker.

    It's pretty clear now that most of the film takes place in the seventies so I highly doubt the only First Class actors returning are Lawrence, McAvoy, Fassbender and Hoult. I'd say there's a good chance we'll get Caleb Landry and Lucas Till back and maybe Rose Byrne.

    I have resigned myself to the probability that Lucas Till and Cleb Landry Jones won't be back as Havok and Banshee:csad:. The characters may still return as recasts[​IMG] but they may not return at all:csad:.

    The X-films give all of the characters in the massive group their time?

    Sounds like some Fox ballsucking on MacAvoy's part, because that's not true. I like the guy, but this is just what actors do, so I'll have to accept it.

    I wouldn't be so sure on that.We have 8 from trilogy In film vs 4 from First Class.
    Yes they have major ones who survived first Class but they have dropped the
    entire first Class supporting cast.That's strange If most of film takes place In
    1973.Kinda strange they would bring back so many of OT cast for only a small
    part of film and yet drop the first Class supporting cast.That's like after first X-Men dropping most of cast except for Xavier,Magneto,Wolverine,and Rogue.

    Even If the future scenes only take between 30 and 40 minutes of at least 2 hours(Not counting credits) It remains very strange to drop all supporting cast members from first Class If between 1 hour and 20 minuses to 1 hour and 30 minutes of film Is set In 1973.

    I think it will be even, I expect a few X-Men from the future to die and thus somebody from the future return to the past and prevents all of this. Thus it kinda makes sense to have the main plot set in the 70s since the X-Men from the 70s are trying to prevent a terrible future.

    Yeah me too! But at least Havok and Banshee got a chance to appear in a X-Men movie and it was not just a very small role or a cameo.

    And as for Moira, to me, it felt like it was the end of her story in the X-Men movie series. Of course they could bring her back if they want to, but there wasn't a hint that she would appear in the next movie unlike with Havok, Banshee, Emma, Angel, Azazel and Riptide.
