    As cool as Sentinels would be, and as much as I want them in X-Men 3, I like the way Jean sacrificed herself in X2 better than this "destroying thousands of Sentinels at once" version.

    Anyways, if Sentinels were in X2, what would we build to in X-Men 3?

    The ending we got was more real....more heartfelt...

    I'd love to see Magneto dismantling a set of Sentinels spinning in the air (instead we saw him in Cerebro moving panels around) and I'd love to see Phoenix destroying Sentinels too.. I'm not sure we'll get that in X3. Sentinels in the final scene seems to have been ruled out.

    That would be awesome but still X2's ending is better, I think it's more dramatic.

    "The finale had Jean pushing the X-Men out and sealing herself in the base and then destorying all ten thousand sentinels in the base in a fiery Phoenix explosion"

    Weird, don't'? I mean, at the end we would have seen full Phoenix without have showed her progresion during the two films?

    That end would have been very espectacular, but I think I like the way it was, more in the realistic world, I mean, the tone... not so futuristic.

    they couldn't keep the sentinels because they would've costed too much and they would've looked so stupid and fake.

    heres a thought:

    the big explosion caused by Jean's phoenix powers of destroying all the sentials could have replaced the cyclops vs jean explosion that cracked the damn. So the damn gets cracked by Jean's explosion of the sentinals. Her eyes get the firey only like with the cyclops fight. Then the movie preceeds the same way as it did, plane wont start cause of her powers, she gets out, holds back the water while the lifting the plane, bursts into phoenix fire, lets the water consume her.

    Wow, I had no idea this was how X2 was supposed to have been. I must admit, I do love the idea of the Sentinels and this would've been amazing to see on screen. But alas, we can only dream now..

    Sentinels would have been a nice addition to X2, but I don't mind that they weren't included . . . well, I didn't mind because I thought they would have made an appearance in future films via Project Wideawake (other than it's head in a simulation program). They would have been a good dynamic to add to future X-films . . . not to mention Hayter's ideas concerning the Dark Phoenix Saga.

    If the did that with Jean, it would have just opened up another can of worms. People would have complained about how that was nothing like how she died in the comics....blah blah blah
