    Okay people here is where your talents will be fulfilled....if you have ideas of casting choices, pictures of new costumes or other ideas for X4 if and when it is done please post them here. Tell us what the plot should be, who should join the X-Men now and the villains, plot details, director, and more.

    I'll add myne as soon as I can think of great things but here are some.....

    Cast:

    Hugh Jackman as Wolverine
    Kelsey Grammer as Beast
    Famke Janssen as Jean Grey
    "NA" as Gambit
    Jason Statham as Mr. Sinister


    Add new heroes and all new villains...no magneto or mystique in this version.

    Statham as Sinister?HELL NO.

    If anyone is going to bring Sinister to life,it's going to be Laurence Fishburne.

    how about setting the whole film within the danger room to make up for the fact that it wasn't used for the first three films...

    :mad:

    then everyone could have a cameo appearance of their favourite villain and hero,

    and arcade could be behind it all (similar to an evolution ep, but far more gritty)

    Alright lets just say for kicks that Jean comes back and is reunited with Scott and at the end of X3 they are once again happily together.

    X4

    The team's lineup is: Cyclops, Jean, Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Angel, Beast, Shadowcat

    We see in the beginning that Scott and Jean have a baby son, Nathan. Knowing the genetic potential for a Summers/Grey child, Sinister blackmails a reluctant Gambit to do what he does best, stealing. In the middle of the night, Gambit sneaks into the mansion to kidnap baby Nathan. However when he sees the helpless child in his crib he gets second thoughts. Wolverine picks up Gambit's scent after a training session in the Danger Room with Rogue. The two confront Gambit and Wolverine and the theif get into one hell of a fight basically ending with Gambit blowing Wolverine away. Rogue as always, is reluctant to use her powers and Gambit being the dog that he is kisses her out of the blue but her powers quickly take affect and she absorbs his memories and powers right before he passes out. Just then Sinister, who has sensed things didn't go as planned, sends in his contingency plan...the Marauders (Sabertooth, Riptide, Harpoon, Pyro, Strong Guy, and Black Tom). Highlights include Wolverine vs. Sabertooth round 2, Pyro whooping Iceman, Colossus and Shadowcat take on Strong Guy, and Angel gets his wings clipped by Black Tom and Harpoon. While the chaos insues, Scott and Jean who have made it to their son's room find Rogue who is in a state of shock. Just then Sinister makes his grand entrance and thoroughly trounces Jean and Scott. Before he leaves with Nathan Sinister drops hints to a fuming Scott that they have a history together. He then disappears with Nathan and the Marauders leaving the Mansion in ruins, many of the X-Men hurting badly, Jean psionically traumatized and Scott in a raging fury.

    i'll finish this later

    I like the idea of Mutant Massacre....and then maybe X5 can be Apocalypse or Hellfire Club?! That is, if they get that far lol

    Also, in X4, I would LOVE for Psylocke, Dazzler, and Gambit to join. And maybe an Emma Frost appearance as well :up:

    Creation of X-Factor or X-Force team... still with base at mansion or somewhere else?

    New characters: Emma Frost (takes over running of team, she's a psi and a millionaire with cash to invest, they need a psi to operate Cerebro, they don't know about her shady side and that she might have secret agendas). If we have Emma Frost, it might be overkill to have Psylocke as a second psionic, we need variety and as many interesting powers as possible.

    Gambit, Bishop, Lifeguard (maybe?), Darkstar... not sure which of existing X-Men to include, that depends on who remains in the team at the end of X3 and who would benefit from being in another movie...also time for new villains, depending on who exactly is in X3 and alive at the end of it.

    Would like it to open with hellish vision of future with tombstones bearing all of team's names...it's a dream by Bishop who contacts team to warn them and they try to stop events that would lead to it.

    I like your ideas.

    It's very vague so bare with me...

    It would be cool to see the X-Men wanted or something and on the run for something.With the mansion levelled,they must find some sort of make-shift place to stay.Xavier's gone so they're on their own.A mutant team is sent to track them down because the gov't doesn't want to resort to Sentinels as they (hopeefully) did in X3.Genoshan magistrates are also sent to track the gov't mutant group secretly because the gov't doesn't want them to be persuaded to side with the X-Men.And they flat out don't trust them.Maybe the X-Men take shelter with the Morlocks,and it should be established that they have a history with the X-Men.The mutant gov't team tracks the X-Men to the Morlock tunnels and a fight ensues.However,they stop and are reasoned with.The Genoshan magistrates aren't far behind as they sneak into the Morlock tunnels.When they see the 2 teams talking,they act and start killing every mutant in sight.The X-Men and the gov't team team up against the soldiers and eventually win the fight.However,some of the X-Men are wounded or have been captured by the Genoshans.Dozens of Morlocks are dead.Callisto orders the X-Men and the gov;'t team out of the tunnels for they have done enough damage to her people.The X-Men however were able to capture 1 soldier....and that soldier turns out to be..............HAVOK!

    dun dun dun......

    I like the Genosha idea. It's a great way to introduce a ton of X-characters.

    I love the idea of introducing the Morlocks and Genosha into one movie. Very cool.

    and we definitely need Havok.

    Thanks,it's pretty vague but I was mainly concerned with trying to combine 2 awesome storylines from the comics(Xtinction Agenda,Mutant Massacre)into a plausible film concept.There's still alot of loopholes in my idea such as..

    Why the X-Men are wanted.
    What event granted the gov't a warrant for their arrest.
    How the mansion will be levelled.
    How they will escape.
    Why Havok is on the Genoshan side.(sorry guys,no siege perilious here)
    The whole gov't hiring mutants thing.

    I say Proteus. Its probably the second best X-story ever. X4 should take place about a year or a year and a half after X3.

    Main team: Rogue, Iceman, Colossus, Angel, Shadowcat, Jubilee, Wolverine, and Gambit and Psylocke.

    Storm, Jean, Cyclops, and Beast are just teachers now. With Rogue, Iceman, Colossus, and Kitty all in college (somehow through Xavier so they can still be X-Men) to become teachers. Wolverine of course is still there. Hopefully Gambit will at least cameo in X3, so his backstory wont have to be told. Psylocke is with STRIKE and thats where we meet her.
    Since Moira is in X3 (supposedly) hopefully we'll get a glimpse of Muir Island and that can set us up for X4. Id go with a combo of the Ultimate and the 616 versions of Proteus. He should be Xavier's son, I think. That way we get more story. The X-Men go to Muir Island after Moira's call, find Kevin is lose, and contact STRIKE (or they could just call it SHIELD.) Professor knows of a young powerful telepathic mutant (Psylocke) and tries his best to find her. She is the head of STRIKEs Psi division (Britain being the first country to realize mutant's potential for good) Anyway she agrees to help, big ole fights happen, cameo's are made, Professor eventually gets desperate and contacts Magneto and his Brotherhood for help, they refuse saying they have 'bigger' problems (the US Gov is beginning Project: Apocalypse (Sentinals), thereby setting up an X5) anyway Prof contacts his 'retired X-Men' Cyke, Jean, Beats, and Storm, who come and all together the save the day. Psylocke eventually agrees to move to America to join the X-Men. Leaving the X-Men as follows: Wolverine (leader, its bound to happen), Rogue (co-leader, hey she's been there longest), Iceman, Colossus, Angel, Shadowcat, Jubilee, Gambit, and Psylocke. With the 'elder' X-Men being: Cyclops, Jean (hey when are they gonna get married in the movie-verse? hmmmm??), Beast, and Storm....and of course Prof X.

    Since I don't think Halle and Hugh will come back after X3, I say have Storm and Wolvie leave b/c of Xavier's death (Storm goes to Africa/Wolvie wherever to set up his solo film). Then you can make way for other characters to be introduced w/o things getting overcrowded. Gambit could essentially take Wolverine's place as the lead role for 4, 5, and 6. Cyke and Jean can take Xavier's role (granted he dies in X3) as leader of the school (remember in X1 when Cyke says to Xavier that he'll take care of them), and a love triangle between Gambit, Rogue, and Iceman can take the place of the Cyke-Jean-Wolvie trangle. What about Cerebro? Well if Jean survives the Dark Phoenix ordeal and goes back to normal, I think she'll still be more powerful than before and therefore she can be the one to use it.

    So I see the roster like this (each one I've matched up with a role from the earlier movies)

    Cyclops and Jean (Xavier role)
    Gambit (Wolvie role)
    Iceman (Cyke role)
    Rogue (Jean role)
    Beast
    Angel
    Shadowcat (Rogue role)
    Colossus (Iceman role)

    As for the Brotherhood, if I had it my way and two characters HAD to die in X3, I would make it Xavier and Magneto. That way it's like a torch is being passed on so Cyke and Mystique can take over for their respective leaders. But to be honest, if they were actually gonna take the franchise all the way to 6 (which I doubt will happen, much less 5) I'd want less focus on the Brotherhood and more focus on newer threats like Sinister or Apocolypse or the Sentinels.

    Great idea, GNR4Life
    Well, we can use the old "all mutants are the same, Magneto does something wrong, the X-Men are partly guilty" or maybe Dr Jean Grey is identified as a really dangerous mutant after the events in X3, and this leads also to the Xavier School. Havok on the Genoshan Side? we can say Genosha is a isle where mutants are slaved, so some mutants are "High class" slaves, and some cooperate with the government to have small benefits (tough they remain slaves). About the Mutant Hiring thing (should we call them X-Factor or Freedom Force?), is the controversial part of the film, is cheaper to send mutant against mutant than to build Sentinels (and we can say that is a critic at some government politics about hiring mercenaries ;) ).

    I've always wondered something about the whole Genosha storyline, how do they make mutants be slaves when they can just go ape**** on them with their powers? Do they have something that takes away their powers?
