    The X-Men films always seemed to have substantially weaker legs than Spider-Man, even though they had similar openings to the first 2 Raimi films.

    Sorry I could've worded that better. Didn't mean to come off so erratic.

    I mean we do at least agree about FF's future.

    However the whole Mark Millar's in, Tom Rothman's out news just sounds like smoke in mirrors to me. Fox's Marvel films are under Donner's production team. And seeing her late husbands work. Donner should know better.

    And if it was Rothman that was tying her hands together all these years then why isn't this apparent now. All we've got is Millar parroting about Marvel/Disney's success instead of coming up with some of their own unique idea's.

    So no I'm tying to see the bigger picture hear and the fact is that X-men is and always has been under "The Donner's Company". Rothman wasn't overshadowing these films to the degree that most choose to assume. Is was Singers idea to give them black trash bag suits ala The Matrix and Donner was okay with it. So there was no real creativity even then.

    Fox's comic book film team has never been trend setters from the start. And remember that it was Avi who practically begged them to take on franchise from the start.

    It's only dawning on them now that there's big business in Comic book films. Which as a fan I think shouldn't be tolerated at this point.

    1%?
    So all those interviews that Mark Millar speaks out on are only for 1% of the GA?

    I say this because Mark makes it clear in every interview that it's Fox that makes these X-films.

    Yeah you're forgetting one thing though.

    Hobbit 3

    If DOFP was in fact really good and had two or three weeks to themselves that would be plausible.

    As it stands now, they'd be lucky to get 150-200 mill domestically and another 200 mill overseas.

    Remember LOTR's track record is far greater than fox's x-men. So I don't see the final piece of the LOTR's legacy being ignored for a dwindling Fox franchise. Especially overseas.

    They'll move it somehow. I can't see them going head to head. If they only got $450 mill world wide after a $200 mill budget. That would be a shame

    How do you consider Ghost Protocol and Fast Five to be "Team Up" films?

    Maybe Fast Five was because of all the old characters and action stars coming together, but i still don't see his point

    Yeah but that would be putting him in Transformers 4 territory.

    But lets say they did do that and made a cool 60 mill that weekend. I wouldn't put it past WB raising their release date up to that Wednesday. Which means they'd still run into a brick wall and risk seeing a 70-80% decline the following weekend. This leaving them with a 140 mill box office domestically overall.

    I did this up real quick last night. I think Marvel should do a version of this as full size poster. Also, I wonder with the new movie (Days of Future Past) if it's going to take place in 2013 like the comics or if they're going to throw it twenty or thirty years in the future? Enjoy!

    That's two for two. :)

    Also, I think Tom Felton is too old at this point to play speed.

    Good point. I doubt we'll ever see Speed on the big screen anyway :(

    Felton seems too young for Quicksilver.

    For the next reboot, I want a complete adaptation of the Lee/Kirby years.

    So, Jean Grey is a useless damsel in distress and Xavier shows an almost complete disregard for human free will? ;)

    You know what I meant, it should be the original five.

    The original five were overrated to be honest. The X-men were almost cancelled when it was just them. You need the other, beloved characters to make the original five really work well and give the entire movie diversity and that X-menish feel.

    After X-Men: Days of Future Past, I hope they move forward with X-Men 4, X-Men 5 and X-Men 6. I don't know why FOX keeps prioritizing making spin-off movies and turning them into a series. Plus they would earn more money with X-Men 4 than making another Wolverine movie or another ProfessorX/Magneto movie. People have been asking for X-Men 4 since X-Men 3 was released, since X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released, since X-Men: First Class was released and people are still talking about the possibility of having a X-Men 4 movie.

    And I don't think its really going to be expensive, they don't even have to bring back the characters that they killed/depowered in X3. Just bring back Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Colossus, Iceman and Angel. Introduce a new member to the X-Men (like Psylocke) and introduce a new supervillain (like Mr. Sinister or Apocalyse) and hire a good screenwriter and hire Bryan Singer again. Its not that hard.

    They are way more interesting than the crew of the X-Men in First Class
    . That movie did well. The only two diverse characters on the team turned evil and died within the spam of about 15 minutes from when we met them.

    Tom Felton would definitely work as Quicksilver but like the other poster said, he's still too young. Maybe in a couple of years.
