    Although there are strong rumors stating that X-Men 3: The Last Stand will be the last X-Men movie, I do agree that it will be the last in this trilogy. Here's hoping for X-Men's 4, 5, and 6, but who should star as the main baddie. Magneto was perfect, however with a possible new team, a new villian should emerge. There are so many to choose from. I have only listed a few.

    well i just have a crazy dream that the next trilogy would be different...that jean grey would be it's main character and it would be all about the shi'ar and such but differentfrom the comics a sort of alien invasion of earth be the shi'ar and no one but jean has enough power to challange them but she is hesitant about using her power and suff like that and the trilogy all about humans and mutants fighting alongside angainst these aliens........in my view something like that could be awesome and ..different

    I think if they went with Apocalypse, the internet would in fact crack in half. I believe that the Hype alone would be filled with so many "OMFG! This sucks/rocks!" threads that our computers would literally explode.

    That said, it would be pretty interesting, if done right.

    Seriously, Apocalyse is the ultimate villain, The next trilogy(hopefully there will be one) will be crazy not to have him as a villian.

    I think the villians should go like this for next trilogy:

    X4-Bastion and Mastermold
    X5-Sinister and The Nasty Boys or Marauders, Hellfire Club(think these 2 groups could work together in this film)
    X6-Apocalyse and his Horsemen(Abyss, Holocaust, Sinister, and Archangel)

    Apocalypse is a candy-ass villain, esp compared to the incomparable Magneto, but I wouldn't mind seeing him in the movies if he's done right and threatening.

    Apocalypse is a bit two-dimensional.

    wow im the only one to say mojo on the vote. does no one else see the potential of mojo? he ****ed with the xmen for ratings. that means the xmen can go through various battles in one movie. and when they beat it then another "episode" starts and they are in danger again, almost like the danger room. I dont like mojo as a character really but his idea was kinda cool and with movies being so hollywood why not make something like that? I mean they butchered the xmen characters storylines so much, why not make something like the old cartoon episode?

    All thses villains are important, but too much to cram in... i guess it could work without 2 of 3 out of Nasty Boys, Bastion, and Hellsfire CLub

    X4: Sentinels, Sinister
    X5: Hellfire Club, Intro to Apocalype
    X6: Four Horseman...

    The X-men storyline seems to have reached a more epic scale with the 3rd movie. The number of characters, issues, and scale in which the story is being told has increased.

    Therefore, I think the next movie needs to focus on a villain that fits within the political/social backdrop that underlie each of the movies.
    Plus, I think they need to choose a villain that goes along with maintaining a progressive sense of storytelling rather than simply picking the flashiest villain to put on screen.

    With this in mind, I actually think that someone like Graydon Creed and the Freinds of Humanity is a good choice since it includes everyday people (not just some cool villain that the X-men have to defeat) that would help move the social/political backdrop (that existed for the previous movies) right into the foreground throughout the movie. This would help showcase the world in which this fantasy story takes place. Plus, this would allow for a colorful visual display of the issues including the level of hatred, prejudice, propaganda, and government control as total chaos ensues (eventually leading into something like "Days of Future Past" only with no time travel).

    Anyone else agree that this would be a good idea? I know I'm proabably in the minority due to the fact that this doesn't sound like a particularly flashy but the X-men isn't just a cookie cutter action flick. If a writer chose to go with this premise I'm sure there would be a way to find it work.

    Friends of Humanity would be kinda redundant since we've already had plain humans as the villian in X2, and to an extent in X3 (especially if the Sentinels come in). Sinister and Apocalypse would provide a new angle we've never seen before.

    Well, what we haven't seen is widespread pandemonium such as mobs over-running a city and openly hunting and killing mutants. When the mutants fight back, this could encourage a further hostile response from the government as Sentinals are unleashed and the military undertakes a hostile initiative.

    How could the initial widespread pandemonium by mobs of people come about without prompt government interference to avoid this hostile response? Easy. The government becomes more corrupt and the political climate becomes more hostile. The Freinds of Humanity could be a political group (with a strong radical undercurrent) that is advocated by a number of high class government leaders (in the House and Senate) and advisers that play to public fears. Unbeknownst to the public (who think of the freinds of humanity as holding holding their best interests) however, is how truly radical the leaders behind this group are.


    I think it would work better to not incorporate Sinister or Apocalypse right away. As I said earlier, I'd like to see the X-men films lead into a Days of Future past storyline without the time travel. Therefore, I would like to see one of them be introduced later on in the movie.
    Sinister or Apocalypse could be implemented as a secret affiliate (either governmentally or independently based) to Graydon Creed and be fully revealed on screen sometime later on as a major power player.

    One interesting twist indeed would be to reveal that one of the higher-ups (maybe even the president; while this may sound a bit silly you get the idea) is indeed Sinister or Apocalypse. Just shows what voting for the wrong person in a volatile social climate can do! It could become evident that this secret character has their own agenda (such s playing to fears projected by Creed and supporting his plans only to show that the main concern of this character doesn't really concern humans but something more) at the end of the movie.

    I think Sinister and Apocalyse can be handled well and realisticly, I mean why not have the first mutant who ever lived in the films, I think it would bring the X-men storyline and the reasons why there are mutants in the first place into full-circle!!!

    Not really.In the comics Apocalypse was augmented using Celestial technology.They obviously wouldn't present anything alien in the film,so it wouldn't work very well.If Apocalypse is truly the first mutant,evolution would dictate that he'd be very weak compared to his descendants,so to speak.

    In my second post, I thought of an interesting way of fitting Apocalypse or Sinister in.:rolleyes: I'm sure there's a better way to fit them in but hey, just an idea that I took actually some time to explain.:)
