That's the direction I hope they go in.
It's left ambiguous at the end of the original story. Kitty's mind is restored and they have no way of knowing if they succeeded in saving the future. I really liked that when I first read it, though I'm not sure it would be as effective in the film.
This would be, basically, a film about Magneto. Again.
I say this in the nicest way possible. But to read this...
You could seriously fry your brain trying to think about time travel and its implications
Alternate universe does seem like a better solution, but as I've mentioned previously that option kinda means that time travel and all the efforts in the past will do absolutely nothing for the dark-future!mutants who'll just stay in their nightmarish future.
They could leave the question of whether the future is changed or not ambiguous, but if the movie follows the future!mutants throughout then leaving them without a resolution might come off as unsatisfying. Unless they just decide to kill them all off.
Ahhh.. but this is what i always wondered... After you changed a present situation you kinda left with two universes, the one that you came from and the Alternate one that was created, from your actions in the present.
Now you have a time machine, that i would assume jumps from one point in time, to another. it doesnt jump to alternate universes... so you would be lost to the world that you came from, as essentially if you tried to return to the future from which you came, wouldnt you just end up in the future of the present universe your in?
Depends where they want the films to go next.
If the X1-X3 continuity is erased by changing history, then so is The Wolverine, which takes place after X3. However, as Angamb said, it doesn't seem logical for a whole timeline to just vanish.
But if that X1-X3-DoFP continuity remains as an alternate reality, then we know The Wolverine leads to DoFP and that leads to sheer hell for mutants!
It's head-spinning, brain-frying stuff but it all needs thinking about.
Part of the decision needs to be based on where the X-Men franchise will go next, after DoFP. What story, what setting, what time period, what characters, does Fox want next? That's the key.
In the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon, the prevention of DoFP led to Age of Apocalypse taking place instead.
well, time machine is another thing.
a time mach. the same as a mutant power could allow you to travel to other universes, as seen in the comics.
so having said that, you can go and come back to any universe you want. At least if you can use the time machine right
I really like this casting t:
Liam Nesson would be a good choice for Cable.
Great actor, but doesn't seem like the type for Cable. I'd go with the villain from Avatar.
I think Taylor Kinney from Chicago Fire would be a good choice. Or maybe Josh Holloway or Matthew Fox.
I still prefer the Stephen Lang suggestion for Cable.
Is it just me or is that clip on every episode of Russell Howard's Good News?
Yeah, Stephen Lang. That's the guy.
how old is Stephen Lang?
Old. Too old. Next.
I saw some pics of him, I like some of his pics, but I kind of hate how he look in Avatar stills and photos. I dont see Cable there. a bit old and I remember seeing him thin, its kind of weird to see an older actor with a thin body but muscular at the same time
I never thought Taylor Kinney as a Cable type but I can totally see it. Plus he's hot! We need more eyecandy in these films. That said I'm not sure if I want Cable in this though.
Basically Cable will be a dude in his 30s or early 40s but with white hair. They're not gonna go too old, if they do include him. That Liefeld art always made him look older than he is.
...and thus epic X-Men - Watchmen crossover universe! t:
Avengers...who?! Justice League...what?!
He's 60. I don't see why some can't see him as Cable, I think he'd be perfect for it.
Plus it's not like Cable's always depicted as being a young man.
He's just too damn old.
Which also further proves the Hollywood double standard. Amy Adams gets flack for being close to 40. Famke Janssen can't return as Jean cause she's pushing 50. People always complaining about the age of the female characters, but the males can be any age.
Stephen Lang is like the safest choice for the role! Thats like saying Jaime Alexander should be Wonder Woman! So no.
And JP, Amy Adams and Famke Jannsen look good for their age.
He should play him but I'd rather see Bishop because we have no black peoples. Unless they wanna get really complicated and include both Cable AND Bishop but I can't see that unless they're following up with AoA
