X3 should be the last X-Men movie

    X3 should be the final chapter of the current X-movies. The franchise is in dire need of a complete overhaul. Ten years from now they should go for a complete re-boot, devoid of any connection to the current trilogy. X3 kind of looks like, the Studio 54 Mutants (X-Men) vs. the Grunge Mutants who live out in the woods.

    Then you better take out a big time life insurance policy, quick, because X-Men 3 is the last 'X-Men' movie.

    I disagree totally. This franchise is NOT in dire need of an overhaul like the Batman franchise desperately needed with Begins.

    That movie may never even see the light of day.

    The only spinoff that looks to be a for sure thing is Wolverine, and even that is overdoing it.

    Nope, never, I've never seen this topic brought up before.

    I was really caught off guard by the topic of future 'X-Men' movies, it took me awhile to figure out how I wanted to respond to the topic.

    :p

    Well, there seems little else to talk about, so I might as well add to this previously deemed worthless thread.

    I don't understand how this could not be the last X-Men movie. I continue to hear that there are many possibilities with which this franchise can be taken, but I don't see it so long as certain players are not present. Also, many main storylines are entirely too convoluted and require too much explanation or prior knowledge . . . I think the general audience reaction would be, "What the hell? . . ."


    Mutant Massacre - To me, this is most likely the best candidate of any storyline, but is hardly enough to sustain a franchise for multiple movies . . . and just having it as a fourth would detract from the powerful message of the other three.

    Fall of the Mutants - Certain aspects may work, others definitely don't (i.e. inter-dimensional portals, Roma, etc.)

    Inferno - Can't be done without Cyclops or Jean

    X-Tinction Agenda - This is an interesting run, but is a bit over the top for general audiences (Cameron Hodge = giant immortal robot . . . I rest my case).

    The X-Cutioner's Song - Good luck with this one . . . Apocalypse, Cable, Stryfe, the Legacy Virus, alternate timelines, etc.

    Fatal Attractions - Too much to include and explain--Acolytes, Asteroid M (not believable), Magneto (who should probably no longer be the villain of focus), etc.

    The Phalanx Covenant - I have no earthly idea how this could legitimately be done . . . and without almost ripping off Terminator to an extent.

    Onslaught (not that it should be done) - Can't be done if Xavier's dead.

    While some storylines, such as the Dark Phoenix Saga, have hokey elements in them as well, after their removal there still remains a relevant, powerful story. I don't think the same can quite be said for the likes of the majority of these storylines.

    Actually, I almost agree with the poster of this thread. I think the X-Men should take some time off and then come back (not necessarily an entire reboot) with all main characters intact with new actors . . . otherwise the franchise just gets drawn out and long in the tooth.

    If they could get all the main characters and original actors back for an X-4 . . . then maybe something might be possible, but I don't know what.

    I agree with the OP.

    Oh and I dont think Inferno can be done period. Its ultimately about the clone of a character who becomes evil because her husband leaves her for the real thing and becomes queen of a demon realm, and then the demons from that realm threaten to blah blah blah...

    Yea. No way.

    I heard in another thread they were thinking about X4. And that they wanted it to be somewhat like the Star Wars movies. Not just a few movies, more than just 3.... At least that is what I heard.

    Last movie? No. Last movie of the trilogy? Yes. :up: Oh, yes, there will be more movies. The X-Men universe has unlimited storylines.
