    Again, most of the Wolverine/ Storm relationship was in the AICN script, and we have heard nothing about it since. Right now, we are not in a position to be making giant assumptions like people dying.

    I would rather not see anything and have it be a great movie, full of surprises, rather than see every character now, and it turn out to be crap.

    We just cant assume things will happen, or we could be seriously dissapointed.

    If Professor X dies then that's the end of the movie franchise anyway as far as I'm concerned.

    I think some ppl here are in denial. True, there is a good chance many things will be changed from that early AICN draft, but there is also a good chance many of the plot points we saw in that will remain in the finished film. Just look at what that review has been right about so far: Mystique being injected with the cure, Magneto breaking into a prison and destroying the GG Bridge, the scenes at Jean's old house, and since that review their have been hints (can't remember who said it) about a growing relationship between Wolvie and Storm (God forbid). Soon or later all of you have to face the facts, it is very likely that both Xavier and Cyclops will be killed. Xavier b/c of the confirmation of those scenes at Jean's house, and Cyclops b/c we havn't heard anything about him or anything about Marsden filming. From the set reports and few stills we've been given, Cyke is noticeably absent from everything. And don't say we havn't heard anything about anyone else either, b/c we've read plenty about Xavier, Jean, Storm, Logan, Magneto, Mystique, and Juggernaut being present in scenes that have been filmed. Heck, we've heard more about Stacy X then we have Cyclops.

    Don't get me wrong though, I pray to God that all of you are right and that Cyke lives. I don't mind Xavier dying too much, but Cyke is the one who should carry on the legacy along with Jean and become headmaster of the school (just like he implied in X1 while talking to the unconscious professor). I'm just saying you should be prepared for the possibility and that it's a very good possibility. Ratner may have passion for this project, but he's not exactly the greatest director out there, I mean just look at his track record with critics. It doesn't help that his last film After the Sunset was considered his worst. But I hope I'm proven wrong and he can deliver something on par with Singer, because anything that leans toward the sorta Red-Dragon mere decency will be a disappointment in my eyes. The X-films so far have ranged from good to great, I don't want the conclusion to the trilogy to be merely 'decent.'

    They said that Cyke might die when it appeared as if he was going to film SR longer, cutting into filming time for X3. When he said that wouldnt happen, and Ratner was signed on, we never heard anymore rumblings about his death.

    Well the way I see it is there will be no leader for the franchise after Xavier dies. Instead of a team movie we are getting spin-offs : Wolverine, Magneto, Young X-Men. All of those movies could very well be done without him.

    I havent heard anything about Mystique getting the cure, except for the AICN script. I myself am an optimist, and it appears as if everyone here is not. They are planning for characters to die, which I doubt will happen. Singer was not a fan of the comics, and he treated characters wrong, setting them up to "die". Ratner loves the Xmen, and he will respect the characters.

    Except...he did film SR longer. Just recently the whole SR cast and crew got back together to shoot more scenes.

    I'd rather see more team movies than a bunch of spinoffs, no matter how good they are.

    I agree and disagree. I love the team format but its a costly way to go when making movies especially like this, also characters always get shafted in ensemble pieces. Spin-offs are a great way to expand on the character without having to include so many other characers. Wolverine and Magneto Im looking forward to seeing, Young X-Men (if the actresses mentioned are seriously in contention for roles ) not so much.

    I have a hard time believing Prof. X will actually die…but if he does, I think Cyclops & Jean Grey will be the leaders in the next set of films, or a “Young X-Men” spin-off.

    Cyke and Jean would be great leaders for the "Young Xmen" spinoff.

    I dont think schedules were the reason. I think him doing a dc movie, a competition to x-3 - that's the reason. I cant think of any other reason to kill cyke. He's one of those characters even a non-fan would recognize (Like Wolvie n' Storm) and the third movie could be his as far as the storyline...

    There's production art in the First Look video that will be on the F4 DVD that shows Mystique being held against her will and injected with something. I'm an optimist myself, I just chose not to ignore all the signs. Singer IS a fan of the comics, not at first when he signed onto X1, but after finishing the movie and its sequel he said he's become a big fan. How he treated the characters is arguable, but there is no doubt that he delivered good films, at least in the eyes of the general public. And how did he set them up to die? He did no such thing, and if anything he set Cyke up to have a bigger role in X3. I never said Ratner didn't have passion for the comics, but that doesn't always equal a good movie. Just look at Mark Steven Johnson. He was a HUGE fan of Daredevil, but he ended up delivering a mediocre film.

    Very true. And therefore shows the petty reasons behind his character possibly getting shafted.

    Key word= POSSIBLY

    I dont want to repeat myself too much, but our director loves these characters, and will respect them.
