I am definately excited about X-Men 3. I do not care that Gambit will not be in the movie - Why should I ? Would his presence suddenly make a bad movie good ? or a good movie great ? No. There is really no reason to be upset as to boudmouth the movie just because Gambit is not in it. There are so many mutants too choose from, that it didn't matter which ones were used, 100% of the comic fans were not gonna be happy. I do not care that Rogue will be cured - This is the movie version, not the comic version. What, do the people who are unhappy about this not care about the movie character ? Or is it a case of hoping that eventually the movie version will run into Ms Marvel, absorb here powers, and suddenly become like the comic version ? Ridiculous. The movie version is a sad, lonely girl who only wants to be able to touch other people. I do not care that there are no Sentinels - If there were, this movie would have been ridiculous. Giant robots stomping all over the country, hunting mutants. Sounds great on paper, but in reality would have made such little sense that no one except the comic fans would turn out to see the movie. I do not care that Cyclops dies - It's unfortunate, but the truth is, the movie Cyclops has really been nothing more than a second string character and his death is the ultimate way to show the general audience just how evil Jean has become. Plus, what better way to add turmoil to Jeans character ? It's bad enough that she's become a crazed, out of control mutant...but now when she does regain control, she must face what her other half has done. I do not care that there will be no fiery Phoenix - Why should there be ? Because there's one in the comics ? Well, in the comics Phoenix was actually an entity that took Jeans place here on earth. In the movie, it appears as if Phoenix will be a second personality that has finally emerged as the dominant psyche within Jean. So why would there be a fiery bird ? I do not care that Singer is not the director - Obviously he did not care enough about the project to stick around for the final movie. He knew it was coming, but instead decided to do Superman. Sorry, I would rather have someone who wants to make the movie, making it. The movie may be bad. The movie may be great. Either way, I plan on judging it after seeing it, not before, and certainly not based on some of the garbage reasons I've seen given on this board. Facts are, the movie was made to appeal to wide audience, not just the comic fans. For those of you who are bashing the movie based on who is not in it, or based upon what happens to certain characters - that is just plain pitiful. Everyone certainly has a right to there own opinions, but atleast see the movie before bashing it.
