    Yeah, I dont really want to see a focus on kid Cyclops. Maybe if they do Sinister, but I think what everyone wants to see is him as leader and Cyc cant do that yet. Rather the focus go to the older characters. Still I think he should be mentioned so it doesnt seem like they are ignoring Havoks brother is one of the most important X characters.

    yeah, a young brother mention, from Havok would be really cute. Specially for the fans, who all know who his brother will be.

    whatever, they still can make a great saga with this cast and adding Jean, Cyclops and Storm later.

    As long as the continuity issues are small ones in the sequels, Ill be pretty happy with a longer saga this time.

    Look at it this way, they can go this route:


    FC1: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Mystique (joining Magneto at the end)
    FC2: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Polaris, Sunfire.
    FC3: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Polaris, Sunfire, Cyclops, Jean.
    FC4: Havok, Beast, Banshee, Polaris, Sunfire, Cyclops, Jean, Storm.


    And they can go on and on until the 90's, ending the saga in the past with Havok and Polaris leaving the school, Beast starting his political career, Banshee going to Irland, and Sunfire dying. So the only x-men that stay with Charles are Scott, Jean and Storm, to connect the last sequel with X1. Perfect way to end the saga.

    So, if we can get ALL of this, why to stop the franchise with just only one or two more sequels?

    As much as I enjoyed First Class, I dont want it to go on for 4 flicks.

    That would mean we wont see a modern X flick till 2020/2025? Thats a long time. Thats one of the reasons I hope the DOFP rumor is true, staying in the past that long wont be a good thing for the franchise.

    In X-Men:Days of future Past there Isn't going to be a whole let of openings for new
    Characters.You have some time In future where actors from original Trilogy will be used.
    In First Class era there Isn't going to be a lot of time to Introduce new characters.The one new character to go toe to toe with Magneto Vaughn mentioned could be character from future(and could be Wolverine) so Inless they start the timeframe of first Class era with a new X-Man already on team there Isn't going to be lot of time spent Introducing new X-man plus future scenes of original trilogy actors.Now they could always drop Angel and Riptide from Brotherhood In favor of a different henchman(I don't see Vaughn dropping Azarel since he puts The acotr In all his films) for Magneto with Mystique and Emma Frost.

    I think you could introduce quite a few new characters in the Future setting.

    But in case they do the Days of future past saga... how would you continue after that then?

    with the cast of original trilogy, forgeting the cast of First Class forever?

    I can't see how Wolverine could go against Magneto.

    With all the metal in his body, he's one of the most vulnerable to Magneto's powers.

    If someone goes against Magneto, it has to be someone powerful and non-metallic like Cable or Legion or Cassandra Nova or Proteus or Franklin Richards or even Scarlet Witch.

    If it were Xavier's future child (Legion) or Magneto's future child (Scarlet Witch), that would be dramatically exciting.

    But we have no idea at this point what they are planning. And I hope they are planning because this franchise needs mapping out.

    That's a nice plan, from a fan perspective, but far too neat and Marvel Studios-esque! LOL

    I doubt they'd have Havok, Beast and Banshee in all those films with the cast getting bigger and bigger with each movie. The films couldn't juggle all those characters.

    I'd love to see Beast decide he has to try to change the world through politics, and Havok discovering he has a brother though.

    It's a shame that the franchise isn't a TV series where all this can gradually unfold, but even then it might get frustrating waiting for things to happen (like Smallville did).

    Yeah, X Men should be a television series.
    If FC2 is DOFP then its safe to assume they wont be forgotten. For me personally I dont need 3 or 4 FC movies and their X Men roster is weak as of now. Who knows what fox will do, no way of telling.

    If I was doing DOFP and connecting it with FC characters then I would make sure X FC characters had the option of coming back.

    But if the better move is not letting that be an option, then Im all for it. If the next X film is FC2 with no DOFP then I would go on for 3 movies top then reboot the whole thing. They need to get to modern times.

    There Isn't going to be reboot anytime soon.A true reboot means everything that happened previously no longer matters,and never happened.Batman
    Begins,Man of Steel,Casino Royale(yes nothing pre Casino Royale matters anymore In Bond series.Skyfall Is 3rd bond film not 23rd) The Amazing Spider-Man and Incredible Hulk(despite some spreading the The Hulk Is still part of Marvel studios film universe) Star Trek wasn't what I call a reboot(It used Time travel to create alternate reality.Part of established history are still valid.The writers have stressed the characters are the same their history has just been altered.They did things fans would know)

    Besides The Wolverine and DOFP you got chances for followups to both.A New Mutants film has been discussed.You have chance of another film taking Ideas Bryan Singer had for X5 featuring original cast.Plus there Is always the possabilty of Deadpool film(although I am getting doudtful that will happen)

    I definetly dont see Fox stoping the franchise on 2014.

    And less now, with the possibility of such an epic sequel.... a sequel that will probably end having the biggest boxoffice of the whole franchise, so after that, they will want to get more money from the x-men, so we can be ready for more sequels in the next years.

    I wont be mad :D

    You asked haha.

    Unless they fix their mess of cured and dead characters with DOFP then thats what I would do. I want to see them fix their mistakes, which would mean reboot if they dont do DOFP. I have no idea why any XMen fan wouldnt want that fixed. Especially after another 4-6 years.

    Back on topic I do think there will be at the least two new characters being added. I cant see this being "the biggest X Film yet" with their current line up.

    yeahh, they better add a girl to the team, at least.

    5 x-men would be fine to me.

    and even if they use the DOFP on the sequel and that would mean no decent role for Polaris, I'll be hoping for her introduction until Fox announcements put her out of this sequel.

    I think jumping into the DOFP future would be an easy way to show Mags daughters. And give Polaris a more true to comic look. No rules so far on who they can or cant use really.

    I just had this thought....DOFP is a story about trying to change the future by changing the past...what if we find out that the reason the X-men cinematic history doesn't resemble the comics history is because someone already changed the past....ala Star Trek

    I'd be fine with that idea. I wonder when (or even if) we'll get to know exactly what they have in mind?

    interesting point, without doubt.

    but that would mean someone changed the past before the First Class events, so Xavier couldnt find Scott, Jean and the others original five first.

    that would be too complex to explain, I think....

    but everthing is possible, with a good writer, so.....

    That's not going to happen.Something post First Class causes future we will see at Days
    of future past begining.

    Again all cmic adaptians have different history from comicsEven Marvel Studios.Theirs Is hybrid between 616 and ultimate.
