Oh, it's disappointing indeed. I was looking forward to seeing Anna as Rogue again, but perhaps we will see her in "Apocalypse".
I think Apocalypse is going to use the First Class cast, so you won't see her there either.

I totally forgot that "Apocalypse" was using just the First Class cast. Ah well. Singer did mention that we would possibly see the sequence included with the DVD/Blu-Ray release.

With a cast of dozens of mutants, I can't really say that I'm too terribly upset about one of them getting their 60 seconds of screen time cut. Stronger storylines for just a few core characters is infinitely preferable to a million pointless cameos.

Were any of them actually numbered except by fans? I remember X-Men, X-Men United and X-Men the Last Stand.

Slight correction: It was called X2: X-Men United.

Well... er... I wasn't that bothered about the title if I'm honest.

It's just X2 in the actual movie. X-Men United is just a marketing name.

I stand corrected. And yet, that seems so bizarre to me. Why call it one thing and then market it by another name? I can't see the logic behind that.

The marketing folks were probably afraid that people wouldn't know what the hell X2 was about (despite the fact that X-Men characters were plastered all over the posters), so they put "X-Men" up on there to make it even more obvious. Kind of like the brilliant decision making that led to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

I said the same thing about the X-Files movie.

That sort of thing happens...Superman: The Movie was all over the posters and marketing of the 1978 Donner film, but technically the title used in the film itself was just Superman.

There are a lot of films that fall into a weird area where the on screen title doesn't match the advertizing title.

First Class
doesn't actually have X-Men in the title (just an X)

Iron Man 3 is actually Iron Man Three

Rise of the Silver Surfer has no Fantastic Four in the film (Just a big 4)

...and if you want to get silly, The Talented Mr. Ripley's full on screen title is The Mysterious Yearning Secretive Sad Lonely Troubled Confused Loving Musical Gifted Intelligent Beautiful Tender Sensitive Haunted Passionate Talented Mr. Ripley.

Happens all the time in all kinds of media, usually when there's no pre-existing catch phrase, slogan and/or the title doesn't really "sell" the product (according to the marketing people.)

Anyone remember the add campaign for Mass Effect 2? That whole "fight for the lost" thing was only ever mentioned in the marketing materials, never once in-game. Indeed, the actual story had more to do with what was making people "lost" than the lost themselves.

Does anyone know if The Dark Knight's promotional materials ever said "Batman"? I wonder if they would try to emphasize it out of fear of confusing people (although, with the Bat symbol, pictures of Batman, etc., I doubt it was ever a problem).
