I'm glad to see them going forward with this one. This way we don't have to worry about how well it lines up with the other movies quite as much.
If it were a self-contained story, set mostly or even entirely in Japan, ending with Logan walking off into the sunset, why would we have to worry about anything lining up?!
With Singer around, I'll not panic or anything, yet
, but unless this is deliberately building to FC2
, I fail to see how setting it after X3
is any kind of plus
