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

I, too, would love for Alan Cummings to return as Nightcrawler but I seriously doubt this will happen because he hated the make-up. That's why he didn't return for The Last Stand.

With all of these Singer vets wanting to return, I keep hoping that Kelsey Grammer will also return because Matthew Vaughn.

I'm not entirely sure now but I think January Jones was contracted for a sequel. The others I'm not entirely sure about. I could see Rose Bryne returning. I'd prefer if Jones was recast though. Emma of course being recruited into Magneto's "Brotherhood" at the end of First Class.

Grammer is probably a makeup issue too. Even if he had no problem with it before, would he spend all that getting it on for a small part? Hard to say.

Did Singer jump the gun? Is Stewart not actually on board yet?

Just a matter of time. Just like Hugh still. Ian's deal was probably already finalized when this was announced.

Singer- Let's discuss the pay now

McKellen- 2 million

Stewart- 2 million.....and one penny

Singer-You're shrewd business man Patrick.

His wording is interesting. He says he and Ian are under contract with Fox not to say anything. Than he says he does not know anything and is not being coy. Hmmmm not sure what that would mean? A contract from the older films?

His people are probably still negotiating. Talking about it before its finalized could undermine his people's leverage.

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

Being disappointed with First Class (the characters, especially Xavier, were too undeveloped), I'm not excited by expanding the scope and cast (even with some being older versions of the same characters) even more. Time travel seems a bit too fantastical compared to the tone of the first two films and while The Last Stand was disappointing, depowering Rogue and Magneto and killing Xavier were some of the better elements I'd rather not have ignored or reset. Better to further develop the First Class characters in the past (eventually adding Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm) or continue with Iceman, Colossus, Angel, Kitty Pryde (and maybe Jubilee with Storm, Beast and Logan as advisers) in the future.
If they really want to do DoFP and be close to the comics, Beast would be best as the character inhabitting his past body (Hoult and Lawrence were the best parts of FC).

How was Charles underdeveloped in First Class? I would say that Charles, Erik, and Mystique were arguably the heart and soul of the film and received equal treatment in terms of character development. The core of Singer's story in First Class was the Magneto/Xavier relationship and that comes out in spades in the film.

Xavier's "death" was already reset by the scene after the end credits.

To me it seemed like they only had a few scenes together; some of Xavier's scenes were good but I disliked how he was basically given the idea of forming the team, the plane and Cerebro by the government, and therefore found other mutants easily (and their training was condensed to a montage); that he and the rest of the film didn't address the actual civil rights movement (implicitly suggesting the early '60s, aside from the Cuban missile crisis, was mostly about partying) also made them both seem a little too lightweight.

Brief and vague enough to be ignored ; a lot more would have to be included to try to justify it.

Well, I stand corrected.

He doesn't say anything about difficulties with the make-up. Either I'm misremembering, it was just a fan rumor, or he's willing to deal with it this time around.

It's also possible that they could just mocap Nightcrawler this time around. No uncomfortable makeup for Cumming to deal with, then.
