Discussion in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' started by FilmNerdJamie, Nov 28, 2012.
But we actually don't know all that much, lol.
I hope they save him for X4/X5.
My ideal villain for First Class 3 is Mr. Sinister.
Right now, people consider Days of Future Past as the sequel to First Class. But that could change once we see the movie, DOFP could be the sequel to X2 or X3 too.
I take serious, serious offense to the label homophobic, especially since I am quite, shall we say, the furthest thing from it. The sexual orientation of the director, or crew, or cast, is completely irrelevant to the quality of the film or the character decisions made. The expression I used is a fairly common one amongst my coworkers and open-minded discussion groups I circle to describe favoritism for a character (or novel, or movie, or flavor of pie). Apologies if it offended or gave people the wrong idea. I was attacking Bryan for his favoritism and nothing else. Those posts were deleted so let's move on.
I'm not convoluting things. I don't know anything about the movie, but big names demand big screentime, and these three are not exactly signing up to be the villains of the movie. I'm making assumptions based on this and the fact that Singer doesn't have a good track record of making films not about his favorite X-Man.
The plot of DOFP alone isn't comparable to Shaw's. Shaw's was a pretty straightforward villainous plot. DOFP has robots and time travel and the old cast and possibly a villain or possibly facing off with the Brotherhood. That's like a 4 hour movie right there with just the plot elements, not even taking into account the character development or dealing with the aftermath of FC.
I am absolutely allowed to be disappointed with the direction this is going in based on the news that keeps rolling in. I'm relieved to see there are at least a couple people on here who share my concern. And it's good that there are people excited about it too. After all if they're going to make FC3 they need to rake in some money at the box office and at this point I can't guarantee mine will be joining the pot. Hopefully something will come up soon to change that.
your point just makes no sense you are disappointed that a character who is on the damn comic book cover and very prominent in this specific story is returning?
I don't know, but I hope they go back to Charles being alive in his own body. The thought of there being Professor X on the inside but some other guy on the outside was pretty stupid imo.
Yeah thats another concern, if they are going with that different body. Then Professor X would have a different face and not Patrick Stewart's face.
It was supposed to be an identical twin brother, so that wouldn't be a problem.
But the whole body-swap thing is a bit silly, even though it happened in the comics.
I'm not sure how they are going to explain it and not have people rolling their eyes and saying 'WTF?' I wonder what Singer/Kinberg/Donner will do to make it sound sensible!
Yeah but I think its still better than having X1/X2/X3/XOW in a different timeline. There was a classroom scene in X3 where Professor was talking about transforming a person's mind into another body, I'm sure not but it was something like that and they even showed Moira and the dead body during that scene. Professor X is also a powerful psychic mutant so it doesn't sound impossible for him to accomplish something like that. And people who watched X3's end-credits scene know what happened to Professor X so I don't think it would confuse people that much unlike with having alternative timeline or universe. The only problem with this scenario is Professor X having an identical twin brother, they might have to explain that one.
This news has really raised my interest in this sequel.
The key factor with this whole issue is:
In case they respect that X3 end, Xavier can look the same and all, but he cant have his power anymore, since that isnt his original body with gen x.
I havent read anyone commenting this, but this is something they cant skip.
An identical twin would probably also have the X-gene, and thus the telepathic powers. Somehow, though, the twin ended up braindead.
Although Xavier never mentioned a twin in First Class, he wouldn't necessarily know he had one. His family might never have told him. He might have found out by reading their minds though, so maybe he knew and never mentioned it either.
All this shows how silly/wrong that death-and-then-mindswap was. It should have been handled better.
Maybe the films change Legion into his braindead evil twin? Half joking maybe half serious, I haven't decided yet.
that would be even worse for general viewers and even some fans.
One thing is to have a twin brother, and another to have a twin brother with the same power.
I really hope Bryan finds a better way to get Xavier back. I really hope it, lol
LoL im pretty sure X3 and XOW fall into an alt timeline..
in both those films we see Prof X walking, and in First Class, Vaughn basically spat on both those films, by ending the film with Prof X in a wheel chair...
Vaughn doesnt respect X3 at all, and he made it quite clear after the film released... hence adding Moira as well... even though she appears in the post credit scene, same goes for XOW and Emma Frost...
Even though they might not explain X3 and XOW making sense in the timeline i think they might find away to step the story so that moving forward, if they decide to make X4, it might even be a whole new entity, that doesnt really rely on the original trilogy in terms of story but still uses the some of the original cast moving forward.
With XFC2 maybe becoming like a young mutants or X-Faction
Remember the First Class film bore no resemblance to the comic ie two thirds of the team were missing to be replaced by other mutants for no apparent reason?
So if we use the same logic here, even though the film shares the title DOFP there is no legitimate reason why Wolverine should appear in this film.
I'm just applying the same logic as was applied to casting in First Class.
a solid argument.
I woulnt be sad if Wolverine wasnt on the movie, thats for sure
Oh Jesus.Beast was only X-Man that could be featured In First Class from the so called first Class due to fact It's a prequel.
Exactly! Cyclops, Jean and Iceman would not have been born yet and Angel didn't even meet the x-men until X3.
For Days of Future Past there is every reason for Wolverine to be in it. The biggest reason being that in a dystopian future full of mutants killing sentinels it seems logical that a healing, near invulnerable mutant like him would be able to survive (and therefore be present in the film) especially if two frail old men have managed to stay alive.
wolverine can shine without being a time traveler, infact wolverine probably will work better with limited screen time
Hugh is doing press right now for "Les Miserables" and there's tons of screenings going on. One the bloggers from collider.com saw that movie and tweeted this:
Steven Weintraub ‏@colliderfrosty
Just ran into Hugh Jackman. The way he spoke to me, he's def in X-MEN sequel and he's really excited to do it.
All we need now is original Jean, Cyclops & Storm
He and Ian will be doing the rounds for their respective films, so it's exciting!
Amen to that. I'd love to see Famke, James and Halle come back
Although I'm hearing that james Marsden is in talks to be Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy. I would have thought that Fox would have secured their actors availability for X-Men DoFP. I believe that neither Famke nor Halle have any upcoming projects to film between the time DOFP starts shooting but GoTG releases in 2014 as well and would most likely be filmed around the same time as DoFP. If he gets the part then I hope that he is avaliable to do a short cameo appearance at the very least.
If the rumors are true & Famke is doing a The Wolverine cameo. I dont see why she would refuse to be in Days Of Future Past. Its not like she has been doing much outside of Taken lately
She's in that horrible looking Hansel & Gretel.
