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

Bryan Singer hopes that fans will just "forget" certain continuity errors.
"Some things you let go. In X-Men 3 Bolivar Trask was an African-American guy, in X-Men 1 I personally wrote the line that of course I now regret: ‘When I was 17, I met a young man named Erik Lensherr’ and then in X-Men: First Class I changed that! Some of these I hope the audience will forget about but for the bulk of it I pay attention to the universe."

I have not seen the new film, but the little continuity errors don't bug me because the over story (and the overall intent of the story) is so good.

When a film is awful, but praised as good, and has tons of continuity glitches, I'm a little less forgiving.

The Channing Tatum casting is real. They've been working on that for the past couple of months since Lauren Donner suggested wanting him for Gambit a few months ago. I'm okay with it and think he fits the part and should do a great job with it.
I hope he can do the Cajun accent.
He grew up on the Mississippi bayou in Alabama, and lived in New Orleans, and his father was born in New Orleans. He says he does a good Cajun accent.

I didn't know that. If that's what X-Men:AoA becomes, I'd be okay with that.

Those are forgivable, especially the two Singer mentions: 1) Trask is only credited as "Trask" and not Bolivar Trask in X-Men: The Last Stand so they could be conceivably two different people or somehow related - maybe the "Trask" in The Last Stand is a descendant or a distant relative to the one in Days of Future Past and 2) Xavier could have just forgotten the exact age when he met Erik - especially since it seems he's in his early-to-mid 20's in First Class. So I can buy Xavier mis-remembering the exact age.

There are, however, bigger continuity problems at play in the X-Men film universe - those I hope Singer addresses and I feel like he will (for the most part). Although, as Flying Spaghetti Monster said, all that really matters is that Days of Future Past is a good movie. If it is, I feel like most will be forgiving if there are larger continuity problems or if things go unexplained (such as Xavier returning from the dead).

Then he's wrong for Gambit.

Just rewatched the original X-Men in preparation. That was good, but I am looking forward to rewatching X2 particularly. Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are what really hold that first film together; in lesser hands, the character of Magneto would have been crap, but he's one of the best villains in superhero history.

Total Film has a very positive review (mild spoilers, you probably know most of them anyway):

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

Hearing more the comments from the cast/creators as we get closer, I'm getting a stronger impression the time travel elements will lead to some kind of new timeline. I could always be mistaken, but there was one specific comment that really gave me that impression, but I can't remember who said it or where now.

Isn't that kind of implied by the plans for the Apocalypse film, if not the plot of the DOFP comic?
