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

That was actually up yesterday and taken down already, so view it quick if you can! Also that's "Time" from Hans Zimmer's "Inception" score that is playing. Need the rest of it already!

And it's already gone. I always miss the temporarily released trailers.

When I heard they were using music from Inception I totally got the wrong idea.

I thought it would be the BWOOOOOOOOONG!!!!!!!!!!

That's be Zack Hemsey's bwoooooooong and used only for the trailer. The actual song that contains that sound is called "Mind Heist".

I'm still a fan of the idea that the Jean in The Last Stand was actually a clone of the real Jean created by Mr. Sinister (basically Madelyne Pryor), and while "Jean" thought she vaporized Scott, she actually teleported him to Mr. Sinister's location, where he's been performing experiments on both him and the real Jean Grey.

But that would probably require a plot of which Wolverine (or Xavier and Magneto, if you include First Class) isn't the main focus. Crazy, I know.
Funny - that's the exact same idea that I've had since TLS was released.

I wouldn't put it past them to have a restored Jean Grey and Scott near the end.

Famke just had a cameo in "The Wolverine" she might be willing to do one for "DOFP"
I thought it was quite a bit more than a cameo. She was pretty much a main character and probably had more screen time than the Silver Samurai bloke who's name I've forgotten.

As for having either of both of them back in DoFP...I don't think so. At least not this time around. It's unclear at this point how much time is going to be spent with the original cast vs. the First Class actors. It's bad enough bringing Xavier back from the dead exclusively through end credit stingers (two of them no less!) but dropping a not dead, not batshit crazy and not an uncontrollably powerful Akira/Tetsuo style superbeing Jean Grey with little to no explanation would just make matters worse.

Same for Cyclops really. Yes we never actually saw him bite it and yes there wasn't a body and YES being disintegrate didn't stop them re-hiring Patrick Stewart, but come on! He's either dead or gone and if the story isn't centered around what exactly happened to him if he's not really dead or on how they're getting him back if he really was, it's best just to leave him out of it IMO.

I have to be honest, in TLS, I was more annoyed at how Rogue was handled than either Jean or Scott. I actually hope that in this film they'll have her flying and tossing people around Ms. Marvel style and I won't even care if there's no explanation!

The only explanation that's needed is "the so-called 'cure' didn't work. People's mutant powers returned within months of them being injected."

Oh sure, that's pretty much a given and was more or less implied right there in the film with that last shot of Magneto. No what I meant was that I'd love it if they gave Rogue the crazy super human/alien powers and I wouldn't mind if they didn't bother saying how/from whom she got them. I'm just that nostalgic for the old animated series version of her I guess.

That plus I find the image of Anna Paquin flying around, picking up and thowing 50 ton robots one handed to be hilariously appealing.

^ Oh right. Well, even that requires little explanation. Rogue showing off, Logan looks at her and she says something like 'I've learned quite a bit since we last met.' Or even him going 'Guess a lot can happen in 10 years...'

If they brought them back at the end of the movie, then it would probably be a result of the time travel changing the timeline, which means The Phoenix wouldn't have gone out of control and wouldn't have killed Scott.

Considering how underutilized he was in the previous films, the death of Cyclops in X3 was a mercy killing...let the guy rest in peace.

What I hate most is that Wolverine pretty much stole Cyclops' love interest. After The Wolverine, the general audience probably mistakenly think Jean was Logan's girl.

I found the leaked trailer but I doubt it will be up for long, and it's missing the very end. If anyone finds a better version let us know.

How is that a mistake when that's pretty much what it is? Or is Cyclops still a romantic interest despite not even being a corpse?

I think the issue is that the "Jean" we saw in The Wolverine seemed pretty devoted to Logan, even though the real Jean was not like that at all. I thought the film implied that the "Jean" he saw in his dreams was the real one, telepathically reaching for him from beyond the grave or something. It makes much more sense that it was simply his idealized image of Jean, in which she loves him, when the real one did no such thing.
