Recent talk of scenes cut from the X2: X-Men United script sent me on a journey to find the four X-Men movie scripts and see for myself what I was missing out. I have yet to find the X2 script (or The Last Stand for that matter), but I did stumble upon the proposed script for Andrew Kevin Walker's version of the movie and read through it pretty quickly. I won't ruin the plot for those who never knew of its existence and would like to read it, but it's definitely a much different machine than the movie we got. And aside from one single line Spoiler "they'll have you in chains with a number burned in your forehead" , the script seems to have been completely scrapped when the next writers came along. I'm not sure how I feel about the script, but I kinda wish it had been made just so I can see how it would have been handled; I mean, trading the leather suits for body armor and throwing in cheesy one-liners in every scene make it seem like it would be in the same ballpark as the hordes of 90's movies I used to love (Batman Forever, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spawn, to name a few). What say ye, if anyone has read the script before or they're willing to read it now, how does this script hold up to Bryan Singer's film in your eyes? Would the movie have worked as the script is? Were we better off never knowing this thing existed?
