I was just thinking today that it's been nearly 14 years since X-Men came out. Since then, we've had two actors play Superman (3 if you count Tom Welling), Ben Affleck has become the second actor to be cast as Batman since then, we're on the second iteration of Spider-man since 2001, there have been two different takes on the Hulk (and I'm being generous and counting the Norton/Ruffalo incarnation as one), two Punishers, 2 Catwomen, 2 Blades (including the tv show, though the first Blade movie predated X-Men) and the second modern incarnation of the Fantastic Four has gone into production. Yet the core cast of the first X-Men movie are returning to reprise their roles. How cool is that?
Shawn Ashmore probably thinks that's cool. Ice pun! Oh yeah!

Okay, so that clip was awesome. I loved the brooding music, the sense of build-up, the momentum that was created due to the constantly moving camera-work, etc. Plus, it was great seeing a sense of teamwork. I hope we see more of that in the film.

I am so glad Bryan Singer is back.

We get a new trailer on Tuesday. I might explode from excitement.

That is beyond cool. That is EPIC!

I don't think it's that cool. I think it's more sad how quickly Hollywood reboots everything, and mainly just how crummy most of those superhero movies were in the first place that they had to rebooted-
ie. Superman Returns, Fantastic Four 1 & 2, Hulk, Spider-Man 3, Catwoman, etc

I wonder how many times the comics have been rebooted since then.

That opening sequence was spectacular. Everything looks crisp and clean. You get a teeny sense of scope, we see the stakes right away, and those Sentinel drop ships gave me goosebumps. Also I'm so happy Singer is back...because that mean's reunited with John Ottman. The score is going to be awesome.

The final trailer today should be pretty awesome as well. Also I can't get enough of those 25 Moments. All three viral marketing sites for this film have been outstanding.

Just dropping some screenshots from the sneak peek.

Sunspot's solar flairs look awesome.



Nice live-action Portal play with Blink.



And we finally get Iceman!

Really enjoyed the clip. I think that scene alone was probably one of the biggest actions scenes we've gotten in a Brian Singer X-Men movie. I can't wait to see what the rest of the movie is like.

Looks great, can't wait! The X-MEN and BATMAN films are the main series in the comic book/superhero genre I enjoy the most and revisit frequently on DVD, so this is one of my most anticipated movies of the year.

The only thing I'm a little confused about (and I'm sure this will be cleared up come movie-time) is why past-Xavier is sometimes in a wheel chair and sometimes not in a wheel chair.

Perhaps, and this would explain the Last Stand prologue with X and Magneto as well, some sort of metallic device X wears that Eric manipulates? Perhaps guided by Charles' telepathy?

Or he's not walking at all and it's a projection, as well as the figure we saw in Last Stand and X-Men: Origins.

That's a good enough explanation for me

As for the film, I was interested in seeing it, but I think that third trailer really pushed me into the "must see" category. This film looks great, and as some of my friends have been mentioning, this is the X-Men film Singer has been wanting to make for a while now.

I just hope it lives up to the hype I'm building for it

The cryptic hint we got from Singer is that his walking comes "with a cost"
