    Given the past comments from the people involved on X-Men: Days of Future Past, the possibility of future movies with the original cast seems more likely now, so feel free to discuss and speculate.

    -How it should differ from the Original Trilogy?
    -Which characters do you want to return?
    -Which new characters do you want to see? Who should play them?
    -Which storylines should be adapted? The classic comics or the modern comics?

    In my opinion, a line up consisting of these OT+2023 DOFP characters
    -Professor X
    -Wolverine
    -Storm
    -Iceman
    -Rogue
    -Colossus
    -Magneto
    -Shadowcat
    -Bishop
    -Blink
    -Warpath
    -Sunspot

    Would definitely fill the theaters, would attract more attention than the other potential X-Men films out there. I'm not expecting Warpath, Sunspot and Blink to return. They seem like one of those mutants who will only appear in 1 movie and Fox will forget about them to make room for new characters. I want Bishop to comeback! I don't want Magneto to return because I feel like he had his time and I don't really wanna see him as of the X-Men, but I don't think Fox is ready to let go of Ian Mckellen.

    And as always if there's a new movie, there will be new characters. I don't know if this thread is for X-Men: Apocalypse. But if the OT cast should have a 5th film. I feel like its time to introduce Psylocke to the team.

    If those two came back, thats another why it would make me feel like that another First Class film is not needed.

    Story-wise, its not needed. I don't think the mainstream movie goers would prefer another origin story, another film where Prof X/Magneto are younger, another prequel more than just moving forward in the present.

    And "origin" materials can easily be shown in flashbacks ala LOST style.

    "Do you really wanna live in a world without Coca-Cola?"

    Depends whether its past it's expiration date or not . . .

    But to play along:

    Differ from the Original Trilogy- Focus distributed around to all instead of one or two.

    Characters to return- Wolverine, Professor X, Storm, Kitty, Rogue, Iceman, Beast, Nightcrawler, Jean & Scott.

    New characters- Don't really need them, but it'd be fantastic if they could incorporate Gambit.

    Storylines- X-Cutioner's Song. But we'd need Cable/X-Force. Anything with a strong new villain. Assuming Apocalypse is just for FC3 that still leaves Sinister or Shadow King out there.

    I think now that Fox and Singer have the chance, they should bring back ALL the original X-Men at least once and for once and for all.

    So this means an epic roster consisting in:

    Cyclops
    Jean
    Wolverine
    Storm
    Beast (the 5 older members)
    Rogue
    Gambit
    Iceman
    Nightcrawler
    Angel
    Kitty
    & Colossus

    They can split them on two teams during the movie, for different missions, and Gambit can start by his own, sharing a few scenes with Wolverine and Rogue from time to time, ending with Remy joining the X-Men on final battle.

    Of course, they could put Cyclops leading the X-Men finally and this way Fox would give us the ultimate X-Men movie fans have been waiting for all these years.

    And Fox wants even another movie, then some x-men can go, like Beast and Nightcrawler . But the most important thing is to use them all together at least once in this series.

    OT cast need to return at least one more time. I would want more substantial roles for Marden's Cyclops (of course), but also characters that can't be utilised in the prequel setting like Rogue and Angel. I hope Gambit is held off until a film in this era, because him and Rogue interacting is long overdue.

    I think seperate teams could be interesting with such a large potential roster. Could be cool if Cykes leads one team and Storm another (not to downplay either), and it would be pretty geeky if the former's featured the original line-up on-screen for the first team (X-Factor anyone?). Failing that, maybe tie them into X-Force.

    As far as plots go I'm not sure. Sinister is an obvious choice for villain, and Apocalypse should really be a more long-term threat than one film (but we'll see how that goes).

    There has to be something about Angel change to Archangel in this serie when we finally have Apocalypse. Would be ideal if FOX give us ,,Mutant massacre" story with OT cast in X-Men 4 aka X-Men: Rise of 4th horseman.
    It fits to MM comic rosters:
    X-Factor: Cyclops, Jean, Angel, Iceman, Beast,
    X-Men: Wolverine, Storm, Nigtcrawler, Rogue, Kitty, Colossus,
    + Gambit as Sinister's henchman, left Marauders and join X-Men.

    This would be awesome.

    Id use the original five together in one scene or two, as a nod, but personally, would love to see at least one scene with Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Rogue and Gambit working and fighting together. It would be f**** epic to me

    but yeah, Mutant Massacre would be a great story, and they could end with Apocalypse rising, leading to next movie, if Fox feels ever more ambitious.

    They still have contracts, Fox won't just let them go, especially with Fassbender and Lawrence being the most on demand actors right now.
    Also, if younger versions of Scott and Jean are introduced in the past, these characters will have more dimension next time we see them in a future movie with the original cast.

    totally agree with the last quote.

    Its important to give Scott and Jean a full arc, and Scott deserves more dimention, so telling his origin will make the audience connect with him a bit more.

    on other hand, we shouldnt discuss anymore the endless Fc vs OT cast. All the producers have adressed they want both, so dont start that discussion again on here, since it has been discussed to death on the board, and by the same people.

    If someone is interested, they can create a separate thread, to continue that war.

    Back to OT cast..... if I see Nightcrawler and Angel together on the big screen, having some epic action moments, I swear I could scream on the theatre, lol

    I realised I was creating this thread in the wrong place in the minute I pressed the submit button. :oldrazz: I contacted some administrators and they already cleaned my mess.
    And this thread is not more strange than a dozen of other threads that no one ever clicks on it. :dry:


    The coke thing is just something I saw another thread and thought it would be a cool title (and an opportunity to post a Heisenberg gif :hehe:).

    I didn't create this thread to turn it into a OT vs. FC debate (I think we already do that in every thread :o).

    You'd think, even if there were only preliminary discussions about introducing Apocalypse to this universe, that tptb would have brought Angel back for DOFP. That Archangel storyline should have been something they were thinking about. But now? Giving that character so much potential focus would just feel weird. Especially after a 10+ year absence. There's just no depth with the character. Something DOFP could/should of worked on.

    No it wouldn't, he can be slave, same as Beast, Mystique.
    He needs more time on screen, Archangel is really cool character and he's Apocalypse's horseman. He has to be in one of next movies, where Apocalypse is main villain since now. So I don't see anything weird in that.
