To many characters! What is this a nine hour mini-series? Trying to get all the fanboys jumping up and down at once? Well 3 seconds per character should be enough.

Given that no one knows the extent of the characters screentime and that a boatload of characters die in the story it might only be a short scene of them appearing and then getting killed.. kind of like the Order 66 scene from Star Wars.

I understand why Mystique is naked, but it always seemed rather unnecessary to me. It didn't really affect the character in any way be keeping her clothed throughout FC.

Chris Claremont weighs in on the X-Men film franchise. It would seem that he is a fan for the most part.

Did James McAvoy say something about casting that he wasn't supposed to?

“It’s huge, the cast is huge,” (McAvoy) said in an interview with the United Kingdom’s Heat Radio. “You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender] Nic Hoult will be back and he’s just blossoming massively over [in the United States]. Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned – I don’t know if that’s happening – ‘Huge’ Jackman’s coming by. He’s massive … just like 7-foot-5 and muscley.”
I would love to see Cummings Nightcrawler return.

Yes, more Cumming is always good.

Well, as debunked as "We're just saying it's false, not saying how or who told us."

As opposed to a direct quote saying he's in it. Which, obviously, he could be mistaken, but still, a direct quote from an actor participating in the movie is a bit more substantial than a website saying "Not true. That's all you're getting."

I certainly hope it's true. I would love to see Alan Cumming to return as Nightcrawler.

Also, in case I haven't said it enough already, Kelsey Grammer.

Debunked as in Alan Cumming himself saying he's not in it, and wouldn't be available anyway.

Yeah I'm starting to think Kelsey Grammar is not returning either. Hank is slain in the future anyway, as is Kurt, but of course that doesn't mean they wouldn't still could appear in cameo roles as unlikely as that is as well.

Why do people keep bringing up who is shown to be dead or alive in the original DOFP story's future? It means absolutely nothing in terms of how the story is adapted to screen.

Here is the basic framework of this story: an important political figure is assassinated, which creates a dystopian, anti-mutant future. A survivor from that future travels to the past in order to avert it. That's it. Those are the broad strokes of the story. Everything else is up in the air from an adaptation standpoint. But if you lost the bits I mentioned above, it would no longer be DOFP in any recognizable way, so they at least have to keep that. Who is alive and who is dead in the future, according to the original story? Totally irrelevant.

It honestly makes me sad when comic book fans seem to be so unimaginative about these things.
