    I think Bryan for now only mentioned what he viewes as lead first Class actors.I doudt James,Michael,Jennifer,and Nicholas will be only returnees from First Class.

    Probably a contract thing.

    I think it's awesome this interwebs thing they called "The Twitter." We as fans have this direct line to Singer. I just replied to his tweet begging him to drastically improve Vaughn's Hoult's Beast's Make-up. If enough of us do so maybe they'll realize that it wasn't as impressive as it might've seemed to the filmmakers.

    I can't imagine Stewart, McKellen and Jackman will be the only original trilogy members returning. I can see Halle and Rebbecca coming back too and maybe Ashmore and Stanford. It's exciting to watch this movie develop though. Really looking forward to it.

    Great news! We knew Stewart was returning in some capacity, but it's great to hear it confirmed. And McKellen, McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence, and Hoult! :up::up::up: Can't wait to hear who's next.

    I think they are the only cast members, other than maybe Moira's actress, who are signed for multiple films.

    maybe the simplest solution is to make X3 one of multiple outcomes leading towards DOFP.

    Maybe the Phoenix is what causes the government to setup the Sentinels.

    Singer does is version of a mini-X3 to his X-Men and then we have one of them go back to try and stop their version from happening.

    I want to see the original X-Men cast the most (Marsden, Janssen, Paquin, Berry) in DoFP, even if they're just action sequence cameos.

    Stewart's involvement is the one I'm most curious about, at this point. How does his Xavier fit into all of this?

    Xavier will probably suggest going back in time. Maybe he goes back himself?

    It's possible. I'm just curious if its an alternate version or if they're going to acknowledge the events of The Last Stand. Perhaps he's simply shown alive and well, at the end of all of this? So many possibilities.

    Maybe they can take his mind from the paralyzed body and send it to his younger body.

    Bryan Singer will likely go one of 2 ways

    1:Completly ignoring the Last Stand.Thus If he wants to bring back james marsden and Famke Janssen he can easily do that
    2:Keep the returning characters In fuutre those that were alive at end of last stand +Xavier's mind In his twin brother's body but don't reference anything In the Last Stand.

    What?? If he is in his twin's body, then obviously you have to acknowledge The Last Stand. You can't just say he's in his twin's body now. Why would he be in the body if he didn't die?

    Great news. It's totally weird that only today I was thinking we needed some more news of some kind to keep things moving along.

    crossing my fingers for Famke & James, but I'm not feeling that optimistic about those two coming back...yet.

    First Class has gained popularity over the past year and a half, but could you imagine marketing for this in the future!

    Just the known fact that original actors from the original XMEN films are returning, could make for some very impactful hype.

    If any X-Men film is going to be an 'event movie' it's going to be this one.

    Something people keep forgetting is that Xavier was shown to be alive and well at the end of X3. Or rather, the after credits scene of X3.

    Xavier is shown alive and well... in another body. I mean alive and well in his own body and after who knows what happens to him in the post apocalyptic future that needs changing.
