    It was obvious that would be the case.

    Indeed, although it's a little disconcerting that the way it was worded implied that Singer is not going to address it at all. The audience should be thrown a bone on this. As previously mentioned, a simple line of dialogue will suffice.

    Agreed. They made such a point of it in The Wolverine that it should be covered in a line of dialogue at the very least.

    I am actually a bit disappointed in this. Was hoping they could come up with something more imaginative. But, if they explain it this to just get on with the rest of the movie it sort of makes sense.

    I'm the same, was disappointed with the reveal/reasoning.

    This is the same reaction I will have IF they reveal in the film that Xavier is in his twin's body.

    But what's the alternative? Some other wacky explanation? Surely they will pick a quick, simple reason if they need to get on with the movie.

    There's already so much stuff going on in this film, there's no need to over-complicate how Wolverine got his metal claws back. It would just waste time, keep it simple.

    Essentially Wolverine losing his adamantium claws was one of the things that needed "fixing". Since Wolverine is the time traveler and will not likely be fighting much in the future, there is no other reason for him to have the adamantium other than the fact that Bryan wanted the future version to have adamantium claws and the past version to have bone claws. It works better for the story he wants to tell and isn't going to spend a lot of time trying to reconcile the difference.

    Exactly. There's no need to waste what seems to be much needed time on story for something that could be explained away in passing dialogue. Adamantium would clearly be more effective against the Sentinels, so just mention that Mags did it for the good of mutantkind in the war and be done with it.

    In the immortal words of Angamb: "This is not my problem." :oldrazz:

    Blame X-men 3 for killing the character in the first place. And blame them even more for coming up with a the stupid twin mind-transfer excuse!

    As long as they mention how Wolverine got his adamantium claws back, its no problem for me.

    That's not the issue though. What's done is done. I'm not defending what they did in X3, but the fact is that it happened.

    The thing now is to move forward from it (not that I see much evidence of this on here, lol).

    I think if they don't out right explain it's safe to assume he gave it back to him. Its ten years, they dont need to explain how Xavier replaces his chair either.

    Yeah. I think a line of dialogue may make it sound forced actually.

    Good thing you gave me these! Sninkt

    I know, good times ...

    It could be shown when McAvoy reads future Wolverine's mind.

    Like as if its gonna happen.

    Okay let them not explain things and just let the audience speculate/question/scratch their heads why things are suddenly different like aka Wolverine having adamantium claws after it was chopped last year, Wolverine wondering why Prof X is still alive, etc...

    It will just lead to bunch of speculations and unanswered questions.

    Well its pretty obvious Magneto did it. We all just want it said in dialogue but we already figured it out. The audience will get it too.

    The Xavier thing is a little different. Twins were never mentioned in X3

    Some people here are forgetting that the previous X-Men movie referenced their predecessors

    -James McAvoy telling Moira he might be bald next time
    -Magneto telling Rogue that he loves what Rogue done with her hair
    -Wolverine and Professor X talking about Alkali Lake and that Wolverine didn't find anything, if I remember Prof X told him to go there
    -Cyclops mentioning Ellis Island
    -etc.....

    They could easily explain and mention things that would connect the dots to the previous films.
