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
Well, it avoids continuity quibbles about how it contradicts the first 3 X-Men movies or First Class or whatever.
It could just as easily have such problems if the proper care is not taken, no matter when it is set. And if it's all about Logan it would have to really
go out of its way to contradict FC ( which contradicts the other films anyway ).
