Still waiting for a Fantastic Four movie where they find the real Jean Grey in a stasis tube at the bottom of Alkali Lake

That could still happen if they're attempting to build an Fox Marvel Cinematic Universe, which seems to be the case. They still have to establish the Fantastic Four though, of which the reboot will hopefully succeed in doing this time around. Then the sky...or lake's the limit. I still think that very thing is going to happen. Perhaps not right away in Days of Future Past or even in "Fantastic Four" but a near future film.

Well, I'll admit it: one doesn't hear that every day.

I suppose the true test will always have been: sometime in a generation or so, when these movies have run their course, could a first-time viewer watch, in release order, X-Men, X2, First Class, *maybe* The Wolverine and then Days of Future Past without feeling as though there was something significant missing?

... If so, I'll be happy.

I try not to. Especially due to the fact that it hypnotized an entire generation into thinking that time travel must work in incredibly stupid ways. Including time travel in... other franchises.
LOL You are hilarious. Until someone proves otherwise time travel is a fantasy! There is no rules to how it should work. Its fiction.

But this is the internet where someone always thinks they have the right way....and anyone else's way is wrong.

Time Travel works this way, my way damnit!!!

Yeah it really is just a fictional plot device...that can be used in a multitude of different ways depending on the writers plot

I still find it interesting that Singer went to Cameron of all people to discuss the time travel related issues in Days. I'm wondering if he won't attempt to use the "Terminator" style in the film.

So, if X:TLS was the original timeline, DOFP could start with the arrival of a traveler from the dark future, and, thanks to his/her meddling, the cast could repair things more than they intend, setting up an improved non-original timeline in which X3 is all but forgotten... forever.
I could definitely see that happening.

I may be missing the point but the time travel "rules" in BTTF and Star Trek 11 are totally different. Or are you not saying they are the same, just...both stupid?

If the events of X3 are erased/changed I feel the events of X1 and X2 will be to. Lets not forget the the major period in the past the film will take place in is the 1970s. Any changes there would affect everything after.

I could see Singer willing to show the events of his own movies altered to open up possibilities for sequels.

I dreamed of an easy way to bring Scott and Jean back last night. Have Nimrod appear in the present era at Alkalai Lake just as Scott and Jean are about to share that final kiss in X3, thus interupting them and changing the timeline, hopfully for the better.

There is no such thing as time travel "rules". It will always give you a headache if you think too much about it.

Not to put a damper on it, but there's the risk that the first-time viewer could become a Hugh Jackman completist and watch both X3 and that movie with the ridiculous title. Still, they'll probably be more affected by Les Mis and The Prestige.

I used to think that the plot of The Terminator was suspiciously similar to Days Of Future Past. As it turns out, it's possible that both owe a debt to Harlan Ellison.
