    Question: Why was the decision (by Ratner?) to make Raven Darkholme's non-mutant hair color black? Or did I just answer my own question with Raven and Darkholme...

    Oh Rat... :doh:

    I always thought it was to distinguish Mystique's real appearance from the cameo of Rebecca Romijn without the makeup and prosthetics in X2. If they kept the blonde hair, it might imply that what she turned into in the bar in X2 was what she would look like without the blue-ness, but the Mystique of the original trilogy would probably never want anyone to see that form. Just my guess.

    I know that Halle started requesting a bigger role in shaping her character (storm) following her oscar win (to the chagrin of singer i believe), now she seems like a much different actress but do any of you see lawrence wanting more control over her character at this point?

    With her much bigger acting clout now.

    It could be for the Hunger Games.

    And I think she will wear a red wig for the blue form of Mystique.

    No and she did more things in FC than Halle Berry in X1. It wasn't like her character didn't receive much development.

    I get that it's to distinguish her real appearance but other than the length and hair color (long and blonde vs. bobcut and black) she's still Rebecca Romijn. She's not very bright if she thinks no one will recognize her just by changing hair "real" hair to blonde.

    The article that I posted where the pic is from said it's for Hunger Games sequel. Are they still filming that?

    According to Wikipedia, they are still filming Catching Fire in Hawaii. So this dark hair is for Catching Fire.

    question is Why Ravel looked so young, when she is suppposed to be older than the rest

    and Why her blue body changed soooooooo fast into human body?

    That whole quick transformation of the cure in Mystique and Beast hand on X3 were two ridicoulous and unrealistic moments to me.

    Medicine and genetic changes take time. So the cure should have taken a longer time too. It was a fantasy take, instead of a realistic/sci-fi take, like how the franchise is supposed to be and the Singer's universe.

    Thats one of the things where you realize the writers and Brett Ratner lack intelligence and talent.

    For some reason, I have doubts Singer would have done exactly like them

    Yeah it's real stupid. Mystique was born with blue skin. She's blue...not white! It's like...sticking Darwin with a cure needle and having him turn white too. Is it just a white person making gun?

    Something that bugs me, too, but I'm not about to use it as a knock against Ratner. Artistic license is artistic license. If I let something like that really matter to me, I wouldn't be enjoying the absurdity of any of the mutants' powers.

    mutant powers or powers in general are just a concept the audience accepts since day 1.

    But if a director wants to do a smart and realistic/sci-fi take, some things have to be adressed realistically and based on science, not like a fantasy movie for kids.

    Thats the difference between Great directors and mediocre directors.

    At least to me

    I doubt she'd demand a bigger role. Probably the opposite, considering how packed her schedule is this year.

    Bruce is referring to X2 and X3 10 years ago.

    Because red hair, as explained in FIRST CLASS, is a mutation.

    Ah. This is what happens when I start coming back on here after extended absences. I'm not in sync with anything anyone is trying to say.

    Because the blue skin is part of her mutation, Darwin's black skin is not.

    And when she lost her powers in an issue of Uncanny X-Men, she was white.

    I think the change of color was just to show that she's no longer a mutant. Sure, in real life it would take time and not just seconds to show that cure/medicine really works but its a fiction.

    Then that would make the issue of Uncanny X-Men, a bad fiction too.

    In fairness, that issue of Uncanny X-Men was bad fiction. It was a bloody awful story. :cool:

    Jennifer's reaction when she found out Hugh tried to help her is priceless:

    It was explained by Beast in FC that Raven *could* age slower than everyone else. Same as the comics. I thought that was clear :huh: Which is why I think people didn't complain (until now) about Rebecca essentially playing herself (albeit naked and a brunette) in her "cured" form.

    I'm certainly not one of TLS apologists as I didn't like that movie either but that's just nit-picky. Afterall, before the movie the comics depicted Wolverine's healing factor as occurring at a much slower pace. But you don't see people complaining about that. For a time after that movie came out they've depicted his healing factor in the comics a la how it's depicted in the movie, ie. instantaneous healing.

    Maybe they could've depicted it more crudely and not so clean in it's healing via the cure, leave some scabs and such :p But I certainly didn't find fault in the speed of the healing itself.
