Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

The only reboots that really bother me in principle are the ones that are too soon or unneeded.

For example Robocop was fine as it was and doesn't need a reboot. BSG had lain fallow for 30 years and the premise was rather wasted on the original show so a reboot was perfectly acceptable IMO. Star Trek...I think it desperately needed a fresh start, but not necessarily the one it got.

As for X-Men...the movies to date have been a little on the inconsistent side and somewhat incoherent to say the least so starting again with the First Class cast isn't at all a bad idea. I just feel sorry for whomever they get to play Wolverine once Jackman is done because that's not an easy act to follow.
