Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

That'd probably be in a couple of months...end of Spring early summer in my estimation. When was the news thread created? Didn't JacksonArcher create it?

Sinister is being saved for X4, where it'll be revealed that the Jean Grey in TLS was really just a defective clone (ala Madelyne Pryor) created by Sinister. The unstable clone teleported Cyclops to Sinister's hideout, where Jean has been in captivity, and Sinister is attempting to use Scott and Jean to create a mutant powerful enough to destroy Apocalypse. It all makes sense!

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I really felt "First Class" felt more like a reboot, aside from the appearances of Mystique and Xavier's mansion and wheelchair; the biggest discrepancies were Magneto gaining his helmet so early (and Xavier knowing about its power) and Mystique apparently not having such a traumatic childhood and bitter attitude (although it would be interesting to see what embittered her, including against Xavier, in sequels).
It would be cool to see Schreiber as Sabertooth in a third movie meet Magneto and somehow morph into the Mane version.

No, you simply liked The Last Stand more than First Class.

So what are the going to call it. X-Men: Second Class

Though that could have a negative conutation.

It works perfectly for the movie.

The mutant class becoming second class people or third class people.

It'll probably be "X-Men" with some new subtitle.

Since we are spitballing how about a turn on the phrasing from the second movie X2:XMen United. With the results of how First Class ended how about XMen: Divided?

I think you and I hashed out similar ideas earlier in the thread when this topic came up before. We're going in circles!

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

@Greg I absolutely LOVE that title. They should go with that. I have a feeling they'll take out the First Class title since it was meant to be metaphoric not literal. First Class could be looked at I suppose as a soft reboot if you want while still somewhat fitting into the film continuity. "The Wolverine" was planning on ignoring Origins as well, but that was when Aronofsky was directing, Not sure if that will still be the case.
