Well, it's getting to that time again. I made this same exact thread for X-Men: The Last Stand, since we had a new director and creative team and all. This time, not only do we have a new director, but this is also a spinoff from the main series as well (well, honestly, I'd consider it more of a legit prequel than a spinoff, but you know what I mean) The question is - do we get some of the same franchise trademarks that have been around since the first film? Does the "X" in "FOX" linger around for a second longer following the opening logos? Do we get a CGI opening credits sequence that gives a slight foreshadowing to the plot? Do the credits get followed up by a slamming Cerebro door, and the opening scene beginning inside the crystal lock? ----- Just note that this is partially done tongue in cheek, because I did the same thing for the last film. But it is something that I'm curious about, since the "X", and the Cerebro door are this franchise's version of "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away" and scrolling text floating off into space, or James Bond firing a single shot at the screen. I'd like to see those consistancies.
