1. Realistically speaking, will the public and fox or marvel eventually want to make an X4 (sequel) movie?

YES. X3 has made a lot of money already, and despite being presented as the last movie in the trilogy, there'e still a lot of demand/expectation for a sequel, the two principal actors, Hugh and Halle, recently expressed interest in a sequel. Halle seems pleased with her role in X3.

2. Will depowered or killed off characters like Jean Grey, Scott Summers, Xavier, Magneto, Mystique, and Rogue return?

PROBABLY NOT. For most of them. Remember, the production costs for X3 were so high because of the humongous cast expenditures. I also think that a lot of the actors signed on for 2 movies originally, so to get them back for number 3 probably was more expensive then the past, since they had more salary leverage. Plus there were all these new characters. Thus, there was a need to trim down the cast and end some of the characters arcs.

HOWEVER, I could see 1 or 2 of these returning in an X4 movie or later movies, the most obvious one being Xavier, and maybe Rogue and/or Cyclops (I'll express my ideas later). I'm guessing they'll give Mags, Mystique, and definitely Jean, a rest from the movies for a while.


PREDICTIONS/PLOT IDEAS

They will need to do a "reinvention" or a new "artistic approach" to the movies, a new style, just to make them seem fresh and new, and not yet another sequel. I can see new movie goers see the sign "X4" and be turned off, because they didn't see 1-3. This new x-men trilogy needs to be accessible to new viewers, but still be respectful of past movie continuity. Plus, the X-Men are about evolution anyway, the movie style and approach needs to reflect that.

Some essential X-Men yet to appear? To me, it seems pretty obvious :
EMMA FROST and GAMBIT


EMMA FROST

Without a telepath at the mansion, and the need to use Cerebro to track down new mutants, they need a new skilled telepath. Emma. Not only that, Storm is the new headmistress of the school. Perhaps Storm forms an alliance with Emma and the Hellfire Club ( like she did during the Mutant Massacre era in the comic books), because of some impending threat in their future, or the world has just become even more dangerous, necesitating Storm to form allegiances with other mutant groups. Plus, they just lost three teachers at the school (Cyke, Jean, Xavier), they need replacement teachers, such as Emma, and Beast, etc...

So Emma comes to the mansion as an ally and as a telepath, but she has a vastly different style than previous telepaths and staff members, leading to all types of conflicts. She's a reformed villain, and it's questionable whether she can be trusted, but she is definitely needed.

Emma's joining of the team could cause conflict, because members of the Helfire Club she is a part of are still pretty gosh darn evil, like Selene, Sebastian, etc... However, Sage comes to the mansion with Emma and is a welcome addition, since she's a "living computer," that will aid them in the upcoming struggles. Of course, Sage always works best as a character kinda in the background, not centerstage, but still highly important. Her ability to catalyze latent mutant abilities could come in handy later on in the movies (ideas: to save the dying body that Xavier is in, Sage recatalyzes Rogue's powers so that she can permanently absorb Xaviers mind, until a better solution can be found. Rogue is willing for her powers return to save his life. other ideas: Sage catalyzes Emma's diamond powers, etc...)

GAMBIT
He's the wildcard, the ultimate charmer, the ultimate thief, he's so charming and charismatic, he gains the trust of others easily. Like the comic books, his charming personality can manipulate, coerce, or enchant people. They could either make this his personality, or one of his powers, either way works. Bottom line is, he gains the trust of everyone on the team, except Wolverine, who is very suspicious of the cajun.

Gambit, if portrayed well in the movie, with a great actor, and cool special effects and stunts, could be the next "Wolverine" in terms of popularity. The charged playing cards, the handomse attractiveness, the charm, the wildcard unpredictable nature, he could be the next "shining star" in the movies.

So is Gambit being set up to be a hero or villain, or is really trying to infiltrate the team, this will leave the audience wondering, and it might not be until later movies that his true motives get revealed.

Gambit and Rogue : can be touched upon, but not necessary. The whole "boyfriend can't touch me" plot has been used. However, it would be cool for Gambit to be hitting on Rogue, Kitty, and all the girls in the mansion. Wolverine is protective of these girls, while Gambit may / or may not be up to no good with their hearts.

RETURNING X-MEN MEMBERS

Storm - leader / headmistress, is a great leader, but the world and their adversaries are getting tougher, forcing her to make some tough decisions.

Wolverine - second in command, combat trainer, distrusts Emma and Gambit,

Beast - teacher, government laison, scientist

Kitty - the X3 actress was great, further expansion of Kitty. Kitty always seems to become a prominant character in X-Men after Jean dies, let's follow that tradition, and introduce her high intellectual abilities as well.

Colossus - give Daniel Cudmore the chance to act, and have a story! If he can't act, hire someone else. Colossus is an important X-Men character, always has, let's hear him speak up! They could really play up the idea that Peter is this strong invulnerable Colossus, but has a pure heart, is highly sensitive, and is very artistic.

Rogue - maybe she sticks around the mansion to be with her boyfriend, but people hate her, because she represents the person that took the cure, that wasn't strong enough to accept herself as she is. People reject her, especially Storm. There could an increasing contrast/conflict between the
Rogue character (who is hated in the mansion), and the Kitty character (who is shining and loved by all). Rogue redeems herself later, eventually gets flight and strength powers, and starts to become more assertive ans sassy. She and Kitty eventually become friends.

Angel - you could go the direction of Archangel transformation, though I think at first, it might be good to flesh out his millionaire playboy personality. It would also be interesting if Nightcrawler and Angel ever met.....

Iceman - no ideas here, except further development of his powers.

PLOTLINES

Well, I think what will intrique and pull in the audience are themes and plots that are universal to the human experience. The first 3 movies explored prejudice, minorities, rejection from family, self-hatred, etc.. These next three movies, at the core, should take these themes to even deeper levels, times ten!!!!!!

1. MORALITY : Religious Plot : Utilize elements of the God Loves Man Kills storyline where the highly religious people view mutants as spawns of the devil. We all know how inflexible some hihgly religious people can be, there dedication to the words of the Bible. Many people have been judged immoral or sinful, just for being themselves (gay people) or for controversial behaviors, this could be a powerful plotline. NIghtcrawler could be centerstage in this plot. I really liked the ending of GLMK. Great way to end a movie. Any x-character could be that spokesperson (since Cyclops is dead). Someone simply taking a stand, using their voice, their heart, their reasoning.

2. EXTINCTION : Morrison's E is for Extinction ideas were great. Introduce the idea that Homo Superior might really be a species set to replace Homo Sapiens? Human respond violently, maybe with Sentinels, as a means of survival of their own species. Genosha - give the mutants a country of their own, only to later annihilate them with the Sentinels. The human race petty much wants mutants extinct becasue they don't want to be replaced.

3. INTEGRATION : They could have a "resocialization" approach, where they try to reintegrate mutants (who can control they powers) back into society. Charles's dream is for peaceful coexistence. Right now, the mutants are isolated away in their mansion. Mutants reintegrating into society face the trouble of not reacting to rascist remarks, but instead must use assertive problem solving, rather than using their powers as weapons.

4. REDEMPTION. Magneto as hero? Magneto feels he went too far in encouraging/using Phoenix, a girl he's known since she was a child. He feels guilty that Charles died. He's had time to experience what it's like to be a human, and has been forced to reassess the idea that humans inherently want mutants dead. Perhaps he's made a human friend too. He plans on honoring and continuing Charles's dream. Maybe when Magneto returns to these movies, he changes his ways and becomes headmaster of the mansion (Charles and Erik built Cerebro together, maybe Erik has some "ownership" in the mansion as well, or maybe Xavier's "will" states that the mansion be passed on to Erik?). They can also have the "trial of Magneto" where he willingly goes on trial with the authorities for his actions.

5. EXTREME PREJUDICE AND HATE: Shadow King. With the increased prejudice and negative energy across the world, energy that the Shadow King feeds on, he becomes more powerful and starts to taint the world, and raise negativity. He is Xavier's ultimate adversary, and with Xavier out of the picture, and the mansion reorganizing itself, the King corrupts susceptible mutants, and takes control of them, and multiplies the existing prejudice and hate in the world. Things escalate (remember the Muir Island Saga (that could have been)).

Refined versions of popular villains like Apocalypse and Sinister could be in these stories too.

Other villains they could cameo or use : Blob, Destiny, Avalanche, Cameron Hodge, Friends of Humanity, Reavers, Marauders. the Hand, etc,,,

Other heroes they could cameo or use : Banshee, Longshot, Dazzler, Psylocke (let's pretend that X3 psylocke wasn't her), Moonstar, Magma, Cecilia Reyes, Stepford Cuckoos, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot, Bishop, Forge, Boom Boom, Gateway, Chamber

Well that's all for now.
 
welcome to the hype. thats one hell of a 1st post. but i also think cable should be put on the list of hero cameo's or maybe even major parts. have scott come back and meet that clone of jean that sinister made (but dont actually have jean come back), that could lead to mr. sinister in 4 then genosha and the sentinals in 5 and then apocalypse in 6
 
was this thread necessary considering the other one right below it?
 
ah dont give him to much crap, hes new to the hype. just go with it, plus i think this one is a little different
 
:eek: I LOVE this idea. I love the way you bring Nightcrawler back into the movies. I was of the opinion that since Nightcrawler wasn't in X3, that he shouldn't come back in X4. You changed my mind. If they brought a religious thing into the next movies it would work perfectly for NC. People did love his character in X2.
I'm not a fan of Emma, but I see how she could work in future movies too.
Of course I like your vision of Gambit. Leave the audiance guessing as to what side he is really on.:cool:
The only things I'm not sure would work are the Shadow King and Sentinels. I know a lot of fans want the Sentinels, but it just seems like they would throw the small amount of realism that still remains, out the window. Shadow King could be done I guess, but we have had mind controle already in X2. I say we stick with Sinister and possibly Apocalypse. They would need to be a little toned down though. Sinister needs to look less like a vampire IMO.
 
what I could see happening in x4 would be Mr. Sinister and maybe apocalypse.

sinister would send gambit and other mutants to the school to get people for him to experiment on. The students chosen would be rogue and angel and maybe one or two others. GAmbit works for sinister as paying off a debt, lets say gambits powers were unstable, he would have trouble controlling them and sinister fixed them so he believes in sinister. have sinister work on rogue, create an antidote and give her powers back and improved so she can permanently hold powers so then she could fly later. Angel would become arch angel. Gambit falls for rogue and learns of sinister's plot (like apocaylse or something). escapes with rogue, they go get xmen and they have a brawl with sinister and his croonies. end with apocalypse and sinister surviving for a 5th with apocalypse as main villian. Also one or two more conflicts in the story and fill in **** so action can occur and thats what I would want. Cameos from magneto (who should be in prison, not a park) and other living brotherhood members. leave everyone else cured besides rogue who gets an antidote.

Well that's all for now.

excellent ideas, and unlike many of the others, its completly plausable. It would totally work and I agree with almost everything u posted. Good job.
 
Your attempts to bring depth to superhero movies are futile. The borg of mindless entertainment shall prevail!

No, really, if you've read my post on the x4 villains/plot ideas, I'm pretty much in agreement with your point. However, the sad reality we must face is that we'll continue to see X-men movies (or will we?) portraying mutants mainly from the perspective of "cool powers" and "who-kisses-who".
 
To the top poster:

You've got some AWESOME ideas up there. I really like your idea for keeping people guessing as to what Gambit's up to.

I'd actually like to expand on that. Let's say that Gambit's been charming the girls, and what-not. He seems like a really nice guy, but he's actually sort of playing both sides. Wolverine, who's distrustful of Gambit, finds out and exposes him. This thereby turns everyone against Gambit. Then towards the end, we have him sort of end up saving someone during the final battle, and he redeems himself.
 
Those ideas are great. i particularly like the way you want Gambit to be portrayed. That's what i had in mind too. The audience should never know who's side he's on. And it definitely would be cool if his true intentions were revealed in a later movie. Him being so charismatic and charming should be part of his personality though because that's how he is.
 
Well, for starters, I'm not going to quote the first post since it's just ridiculously long, so this is my reply to the thread starter.

I basically agree with your post, and how you handled Emma is just magnificent - if only the moviemakers would do something similar and successfully (if they're even going to make an X4). She is absolutely my favourite character and that's the way I want her to be handled. The only problem is casting. There are two ways to handle that, either cast a bit more mature, experienced actress to do the job well, or cast a skanky bimbo pumped up with silicon to butcher the character. It's obvious I'm a supporter of the first option...

But then there's Gambit. I admit it, I haven't done really any background checking on him, at least not that I remember of, but I don't really recall any major, "classic" or meaningful storyline with him in it. The only reason to introduce him at this point is to please the masses, and there are indeed a lot of Gambit fans out there. Which is really beyond me, since I never found the character that charming in the first place. Maybe it's the cartoons, I don't know. If they do decide to cast him, it'll probably be because of popularity reasons; it's a great way to make the movie a whole lot more popular by introducing someone like Gambit to the franchise.
Then again, the same could be said about Emma Frost, but at least she's a major player in the newer comics, being the Co-Headmistress and all. (Ok, I admit, I might be slightly biased when it comes to her. :D)

All in all, great post and some very good points, especially with the themes.
 
Overall, I feel that too much has been resolved in X-Men: The Last Stand to justify another sequel. These films work better as a trilogy the way they've been worked out.

But if a 4th movie were to happen, here's what I'd like to see. I haven't read anything in this thread to know what has and hasn't been brainstormed already. All I know is that if a 4th movie does happen, it really truly needs to interconnect with the other 3 movies.

Brainstorm on:

After the events on Alcatraz, Trask heads a project to develop the Sentinels, to track down and capture renegade mutants before they can cause chaos and destruction like Magneto and the Brotherhood did. However, because of the President's recent view towards mutants (appointing Beast as ambassador to the U.N. for example), Trask doesn't approve it through the President or the government. Instead, he gets the operation privatley funded by the Hellfire Club.

The Hellfire Club is 2-faced, however... using Emma Frost, a former collegue of Xavier's, to fund and oversee Xavier's School for the Gifted in his "absence". Emma Frost sells out the X-Men, and betrays them to Trask. Storm would end up being captured by a Sentinel.

The mutant prison would be held on the island of Genosha (cue the X-Men animated series episode "Slave Island"). One of the mutant prisoners is Gambit. Gambit helps Storm escape, and they learn the secrets behind the Sentinel project going on. The mutant prison also lends oppourtunity to many, MANY mutant cameos.

The X-Men would have to fight off Sentinels on Genosha, with the help of Gambit, to destroy the Master Mold before it can be completed, as well as fighting the Hellfire Club.

Subplot with Xavier on Muir Island.

Returning characters:
Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, Trask, President, Moira McTaggert, Xavier

New characters:
Gambit, Emma Frost, Hellfire Club

Cameos / bit roles:
Rogue, Magneto, tons of mutants on the mutant prison of Genosha.
 
I really want Emma Frost, Stacy X and maybe Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to debut in X4, that would be so amazing, could they maybe do a New X-Men:Academy X type thing but with Emma, Storm and Beast instead of Emma and Cyclops.
-mutantwings:spidey:
 
i think if any character has to be introduced it has to be gambit, even fans of the movie who know nothing but whats in the movies have heard about gambit. its time for the cajun
 
Let's start the whole family affair...Magneto with a serious dip in his powers searches for his children...Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver...they renew the Brotherhood...the undead Prof X helps Juggernaut recover from the Phoenix fiasco...The undead Cyclops (there was no body) has been found by Mr. Sinister and genetically enhanced to wreak "Havok" on the X-Men for never coming to his rescue...Gambit is introduced throwing a new twist into the Rogue-Iceman thing...Colossus plays a much bigger part in the new movie, because let's face it...they need more Colossus...Sinister and Cyke start kickin butt, Wolverine will show up from Canada after some soul searching and he and Cyclops will have they ultimate lover's tyraid...movie ends with a possible link between Gambit and Apocolypse...begin filming X5...

i like this, props
 
another possibility is Sinister bringing in Madelynne Prior to entice Cyke to fight for him...bring in Alex Summers hunting for his bro and have him join with the X-Men...makes for great sibling rivalry

i like this too, fans have great ideas, i wish they would like have a contest for the story idea or something like that and who ever wins gets to chill on set and work the story

i dunno, it would be cool haha, but a couple of these have been good
 
Characters

Cyclops: Its very possible that Cyke is alive. One idea iI have is that Sinister has brainwashed him into thinking he's just a writer who lives Alaska with his wife Madelyne Pryor, who routinely gets visted by his doctor, Mr. Essex, for checkup on his eyes. Anyway, after being saved, he comes back to the X-Men and becomes co headmaster and co leader

Wolverine: Logan is still apart of the team, and is now combat teacher at the school. He still retains his badass edge.

Storm: Still head of the school

Iceman: Has become older, still in a relationship with Rogue.

Kitty: Starting a relationship with Colossus

Colosuss: Starting a relationship with Kitty.

Angel: Is very happy at the school, and has become more confidant.

White Queen: Emma is the new telepath at the school. She's a *****, and has alterior motives

Gambit: Newcomer, has mysterious ties to Sinister. No one trusts him.
 
I HAVE AN IDEA! for x4!... its not necessarily true to the comics, but not like the previous movie were either... so heres my idea for x4:

it starts out with gambit showing up at a dark eerie lab... to get an operation done by mr sinister to help him control his powers... as he walks through the lab he sees mutants that sinister was working on such as the victims of X3... like cyclops! and maybe psylocke!... and some others... maybe... after gambit leaves he does his final business with sinister (morlocks massacre or something)... and then months later he meets storm and saves her somehow... and then he joins her with the xmen! and then gambit learns of cyclops' legacy and his death... but he realizes cyclops is alive with sinister! and then somehow xmen find out and attempt to save cyclops, but the only one who knows is gambit... and the xmen wonder how he knew... but that problem can saved for X5 haha

ok thats all i could think of... go gambit!
 
Nell, I absolutely LOOOOOVE your idea only because it's soo close to my idea I had for an X4.
