    I just think its weird that you're about to have an X-Flick without Wolverine...and instead of making sure you have characters in it that fans wanna see, you pump it with characters most people dont care for....especially when their last two films were loaded with familiar chracters just to sell tickets.

    I won't lie...I'm extremely disappointed. I wanted to see Scott, Jean, and Storm, especially since they didnt get the proper portrayals they deserved. I definetely think this will be the lowest grossing film. They really needed the heavy hitters to make up for no wolverine.

    The general audience probably doesn't give a damn about what 'list' a character is on. If some guy if firing beams out of his hands people will see it because it looks cool.

    And honestly, I don't really care how Magneto and Xavier got in some divide. I'd rather see the actual X-MEN then sit through 2 hours of them meandering through Xavier and Mag's relationship troubles.

    I doubt I'm seeing this. And I'm going to get my friends and family not to see it either.

    Exactly. People still like the X-Men movies, if they make a cool trailer and hype is a prequel, people will definitely show up.

    ^ This. If Mags and Xaviers history was in ADDITION to seeing Scott, Jean, Ororo, and Hank, I'd be very excited. Now, I barely care.

    Exactly, people in the general audience just don't give two flips about Xavier and Magneto's destroyed friendship. I do as a comic fan, but for them they just want to see the X-Men fight other mutants.

    Yes, but aside from Havok and Beast. The other X-Men announced have relatively boring powers.

    Darwin? Angel Salvadore? SERIOUSLY?

    There's nothing the general audience listens to more than disgruntled fanboys.

    So, we can't possibly have a prequel without Scott and Jean (even though they're not born yet) but we can have an X4 where they're dead? Oh, but Jackman and Berry are still in it. So, its basically not about Scott and Jean its just about having a popular mutant. :rolleyes:

    I like that the story is now "people will go see an xmen movie no matter what!"

    Yeah....I'm gonna make sure to pay attention to audience response when they realize wolverine wont be in the movie...

    Then, I'm gonna pay attention when they realize that Cyke, Storm, and Jean wont be in it either...

    Then I'm gonna see how much they really care about seeing Xavier with hair.

    It is likely the only reason those random characters have been added is BECAUSE of their powers. They'll serve their purpose and provide the money shots when required.

    Exactly. Considering how X3 ended, I'd much rather see this movie than an X4 that continues from there.

    Angel Salvadore and Darwin? ANGEL SALVADORE AND DARWIN chose because of their POWERS? LOLOLOLOLOL. You didn't just say that. :hehe:

    Maybe not Angel Salvadore (though, what makes Warrens powers in X3 cooler?) But, Darwin has one of the most awesome powers.

    Yes, being able to adapt to any situation or environment must be pretty useful. He's the mutant equivalent of Dr. Who's 'solve everything when required for the plot' screwdriver.

    Uh oh, Singer isn't catering to fanboy desires!

    Fail Bomb alert!


    The movie wasn't going to break records anyways. X3 and Wolverine made sure of that already by stinking up Singer's hard work. If this is Singer's last song, then I just hope it's a good story.

    Darwin has an interesting power, but I don't see them being creative enough to use it in interesting ways.

    They did it to themselves. They did it to themselves.

    I never said it would. There's bound to be lemmings going to see it regardless of whether it's crap or not.:oldrazz:
    Personally I was looking forward to seeing Storm, Jean, and Cyclops with dashes of Xavier and Magneto, not the Magneto and Xaver movie.

    Still, like the last trainwrecks, some will pretend that everything is absolutely ideal.

    Only this time, this trainwreck isnt gonna have everyone flocking to it.
