    The whole Jean/Madelyne after DP and who died, who survived, who is who is so ridiculous that I force myself to forget that happened. But my point was that they have introduced the clone thing in the XMCU, and they linked it to Sinister.

    If they intend to use him as a villain, which I believe they'll do it soon, they might play with that (not that they will necessarily will use Madelyne)

    Not recasting Toad and Ink is already a plus for me. Go Kinberg lol.

    Sorry for making a lighthearted joke that was appropriate. You can now go back to your endless whining about how much you hate these movies because they don't star the original cast. :o :oldrazz:

    lol

    Anyways, went to the Deadpool2 on-set filming location today (they closed off a number of major streets downtown this afternoon) and saw Domino stunt double on a motorcycle and what looks like she's chasing someone. And to make this post relevant to the the forum, there was also a "Phoenix Moving Co." truck on the set. A couple days ago, on another Skull + Poop + L set, I saw a "Pryor's Treats" ice cream truck.

    I asked Kodi's stunt double to ask Simon to release some production shots and he replied "hahaha no no very secretive this time". Too lazy to host the screenshot though.

    I still wonder if Rose Byrne will be in this. Think we would have heard by now if she was.

    I hope she doesn't return. I didn't like her role in Apocalypse.

    Lana Condor's just sitting and waiting for the phone call like...

    But curious to see if Toad and Ink will play a bigger role, given how they just made small appearances in Days of Future Past. It would be easy for me to say this film feels overstuffed based on the number of characters, but it all depends on how they're balanced. And that the focus is still on Jean.

    I guess Luna is Warbird?

    I can't really picture Lamar as Sunfire, but we already got the casting for Domino and Cecilia so I guess it won't be too surprising if he plays Sunfire. If not, maybe Maggott or younger Bishop.

    I actually like these different little teams of people. If they can balance it out right I think it could be more interesting than just x-men vs the brotherhood.

    I must say I wish they would do a promo pic or a short teaser that mirrored the opening for the cartoon.

    It's not a Kinberg X-Men film without an overload of mutants!

    Oooh. That would be something else. It would be a good way to finally have sinister as a villain, but I they do have a Jean clone, they could have Sophie use her natural accent to differentiate the two (if everyone knows that she's a clone). I really hope they do sinister eventually.....so much potential.

    Well, remember that South Korean actor Rain was cast and had to drop out. I doubt Lamar replaced him.

    since we havent seen any asian actor with the x-men crew this last month, my guess is that Sunfire wont be an actual team member. Who knows, he could easily be in Genosha, in a similar way to Vaughn idea of having Sunfire being a Hellfire member in FC. Not a fan of any options, but we'll see

    Lol of course Sunfire won't be a X-Man. Psylocke And Angel didn't even get a chance for that role.

    i still say the madelane pryor storyline is far far too convulted to do in films.
    also note jean was alive at end of dofp.and they keep saying they aren't going to recast wolverine.kinberg is on record as saying the future ending of dofp is where films are heading with younger cast baring another time travel event film.
    as well as things are heading in some ways to some elements of original trilogy.it looks like magneto,mystique,and toad will be together in genosha in
    haven for mutants.they just aren't fighting x-men or attacking humans.

    if they want to get into cable's origin they can easily mkae jean into his actual mother to simply it.now some would cry about it but before films started i felt if there was x-men films and they wanted to do cable they should have jean as his actual mother instead of doing madelaine pryor.

    You're right. And since they initially cast Rain, they probably have no intention of the characater saying more than 2 words ala Blink/Bishop.
