    in fact those three characters can be really really useful.

    The problem is the script/writers, not the characters

    As Angamb says, all those could be useful, but they were under-used or misused altogether.

    Darwin had more to offer than we saw, but i doubt we will see him survive in energy form. Riptide could have been a brutal adversary, especially with the shurikens like in the comics. Trask was a waste of time in X3. He could have been called anything considering his non-contribution to the plot.

    They should bring Darwin back.

    The trouble is everyone wants everyone who is dead to come back, and it would be a bit much to give us all those resurrections. It would remove the impact of death completely.

    However, I dreamt up a scenario in my head the other day where Darwin did survive by becoming a being of energy but was struggling to re-form physically. He appeared at the X-Mansion like some sort of ghost or weird energy manifestation. Eventually Xavier was able to communicate with it and figure out it was Darwin, and Beast built a chamber where Darwin's energy was collected and concentrated so that he and Darwin could then re-create Darwin's physical body.

    I like it. It would make for a great one-off issue, but it sounds like it would take up a big portion of a movie.

    No. He already died.

    I just think its really lazy and that would just show them that they don't really what to do with the mess/errors (continuity errors) that they made if they go ahead with a reboot.

    Your welcome and this isn't like the comics, that every character can easily be resurrected.

    ...Jean dies and comes back in the comics. Jean died in X2 and came back in X-Men the Last Stand.

    We all know that and we expected her to get resurrected in X3.

    X-Maniac already pointed out the trouble of resurrecting characters. Its gonna be over-kill to resurrect every character that already died in the movies. Darwin is not even a major character unlike Jean Grey, Prof X and Cyclops. Plus There are a lot of characters out there in the comic-books that haven't appeared in a X-Men movie yet, why resurrect someone like Darwin.

    Scott (if he's dead) and Jean are the only ones worth bringing back.

    X-Maniac did make that point, and it made sense, and I agree with the post. I was merely responded to - no offence - how pompous your post was.

    (Note: I'm not using pompous as an insult, but rather commenting on how condescending your initial post was. Please consider a bit of decency when posting. We're all fans of the same thing here. No need for animosity.)

    Which could easily be done if they go the route of Mister Sinister in X4 (which could set-up AoE for X5).

    Lol, Darwin's dead. Shouldn't be brought back either, and I don't think he will be.

    Yeah, that's pretty much a safe bet. He was a useless character and bringing him back would be pointless.

    Yup, no point in bringing him back. He was there to die. That was the role he filled.

    Unfortunately, they made an error in choosing a black character for that role... but at this point they should just wash their hands of it, move on and forget about it.

    Well I'm sorry if you feel that way. It wasn't my intention to be condescending and rude.

    Can we finally do away with some of the crazy theories and start to admit MTV may have been right on the money on him as Trask.

    If you want to see Dinklage's reall voice watch him on Nip/Tuck season 4.

    as for casting of younger characters who knows what he means.

    and perhaps...

    I don't see how he could be refearing to obvious choices of Cyclops,Jean,and Storm If he
    Isn't ignoring Origins and Last STand.But,then again Bryan Singer has been talking more
    about correcting things from other films and DOFP being more It's own thing than direct sequel to first Class or Last Stand so who knows.

    I hope its Banshee and Havok. I hope they'll save Storm and Emma for the final casting announcement.
