In the special features for the first X Men Singer said X Men is more like Star Trek than Star Wars. I don't completely disagree with him but their is some major contention their for sure. I really hope they let loose with DOFP. The X series has plenty of huge story lines to interpert for the big screen. I think the problem comes with the fact that in the comics you're dealing with more than mutants. Their's magic,other super heroes,etc. The movies has pretty much just focused on "mutants'.
