Singer chose to ignore X-Men Orgins: Wolverine like most sane fans.

Will Singer also ignore X-Men: The Last Stand?

Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

I think there were also some contradictions with the first two films. Off the top of my head, I think there was a bit where Magneto mentioned helping Xavier to build cerebro, which clearly wasn't the case in 'First Class'.

Sure you could reason that in the several decades between FC & X1 Chuck and Erik may have gone through periods of further collaboration, but if we're just going off what the film tells us, that's not implicit. Now Nightcrawler's parentage on the other hand: that's fairly implicit.

Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

@Dream, I could care less who posted it. There hasn't been any follow up to that story and that was speculative at best. There is no confirmation of the story for First Class 2 yet.

Believe me I want to be excited about this...but this "story" basically contradicts the brief amount that Vaughn and Singer have stated regarding their plans for the sequel. I've been skeptical of this since it was first brought up a couple of months ago.

Well, I saw FC a while back.

I thought it was good, but I think they should have gone all the way and done a reboot. I really missed Cyclopes and Jean. Michael Fassbender was awesome as Magneto though.

It was quite refreshing to have a X-Men movie not completely taken over by Wolverine.

I was just messing with you. I had a mod change the topic title.

I'm really looking forward to the sequel.

It's all good. It has just bugged me the way this "story" has been reported since it "broke". I really don't believe it LOL.

^Given the source, I really doubt it too. While it would be a sneaky way to reboot the franchise, just that by itself probably means it was made up by a fan. I mean I don't see a script writer caring about future continuity too much. Certainly not enough to base his whole script around the conceit.

And yet he still managed to steal a scene with just three words.

Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Especially since that script writer is Simon Kinberg. I very much doubt he'll remain the sole writer of the film, especially when Vaughn starts working on this (he's been busy with the Kick-Ass 2" script with Jane Goldman recently) and Singer has been occupied with "Jack the Giant Killer". I just think this story is some kind of "desperation" story that some sites have dug up in order to get hits since we haven't really had much news on the sequel for a while and like I mentioned above, I haven't seen this reported on any reputable site since it was first brought up.

Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

As a fan of the (good) movies and not so much of the comics, it'll be interesting to see how this plays out with time travel apparently getting thrown into the mix. I'm assuming the action will still mostly be based around the cast from "First Class", and I certainly hope so, because they all did a fantastic job. Not to mention that X-Men 3, and its rampant killing and depowering of all the best characters, really destroyed any interest I had in seeing a continuation of that part of the timeline. I suppose that's where "ignoring 'The Last Stand'" comes in, but it's one thing to have minor continuity issues between two movies that take place decades apart, and another to have scenes taking place in "the future" that directly contradict whole films that take place in said fictional future. Or, maybe it isn't. I dunno. I hope it's as good, or better, than "First Class" in any case. More Michael Fassbender! His Magneto is awesome.

All of the principal cast from "First Class" (with the exception of Kevin Bacon of course) are resigned for the sequel.

I hope this means we will finally be getting some good Sentinel battle scenes. The cameo in The Last Stand was so lame.

Instead of making them as tall as buildings, they should be as tall as the Frost Giants were in Thor. Very tall, but not too ridiculous.
