Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

Would you watch it?

I would.

Thoughts?

Probably, although the title "X-Men Friends of Wolverine: Jubilee" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Re: Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

After the last X-Men movie, I'm kind of tired of the whole universe. I think I prefer the X-Men with Wolverine involved, but he needs to stop being so important. There are plenty of other characters that have stories to tell.

Re: Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

I'd love if they rebooted from the beginning.

General movie audiences already know the X-Men. They don't need Wolverine to boost the concept....at least not right away.

I'd start with a Prof X. vs. Magneto "origin" movie where they first meet and confront each other. I'd end that movie with each of them starting to form their own teams of mutants.

This team could have the classic lineup (Cyke, Jean, Iceman, Beast, Angel) and maybe I'd do at least one sequel with that lineup. Maybe they could face off against the Brotherhood. Maybe the Sentinels show up at the end and basically capture or kill all of them. This could be the "Empire Strikes Back" of the X-Men.

In the third movie, the Prof has to recruit new X-Men to save/replace the originals. This is when the new "international" team shows up (Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus).

I think that's kind of what they're planning to do in the Magneto movie, though not in the context of what you're suggesting. (Apparently young Xavier is a soldier in WWII, which means he must be a whole lot older than he looks in the "near future" setting of the first three movies.)

Re: Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

^I'd love that, too. I'm mostly familiar with the X-Men from the 90s FOX cartoon, but I'd love it if they tackled the basic, famous stories. Sentinels would be awesome. I also wish they would have done a more accurate version of the Phoenix Saga. What we got in X3 was crap.

Find a couple good actors with the right looks around 30 years old to take on the roles.

Xavier = Wes Bently

Magneto = Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Re: Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

depends who the characters are.

if they go with this 'First Class' thing, with Jean, Cyke, Hank and someone else (doubt it'd be Bobby or Warren), I would.

Banshee? Firestar? Havok? Polaris?


i did kinda get the impression when XM:FC was announced though, that they were doing something featuring the kids seen in X-1 through 3, IE: Iceman, Kitty, Colossus, Rogue, possibly Jubilee etc.

Re: Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

much as I like Wolverine and Jackman's depiction of him, there are numerous X-Men who haven't been seen on screen or only got fleeting appearances. So there's no reason why a Wolvie-less movie can't be good. I'd go see it, assuming it lived up to the standards of the first two.

Incidentally, if they opted to recast Wolverine, does anyone think John Stamos from ER might be a good choice? Maybe it's just the way he's wearing his hair and sideburns at the minute, but I think if he bulked up, he could make a pretty seamless replacement for Jackman. Ironically enough, he was previously married to the X-movies' Mystique, Rebecca Romjin (formerly Romjin-Stamos).

Re: Future X-Men projects: A Wolverine-less X-Men...

In a heart beat. I like Singer's movies. They're fun as hell. But they're just Wolverine solo films guest staring The X-Men. Focusing on the other characters would be very welcome indeed. And this time, don't turn Cyclops into a joke.

If they ever did an X-Men TV show, I'd pick Billy Warlock for Wolverine. He's dark, short, has a gruff voice and, like Logan, is seemingly ageless.

I wouldn't quite say that. Wolverine was the audience identification character. The one who looked in and commented on the ridiculousness of it all, which in turn helps sell the reality. You can't just abandon that in the sequels. The X-Men were seen acting as a team several times in the films, but there often needs to be the main protagonist.

Cyke was criminally underused, though.

Personally, I'm waiting for the X-23 movie. Or better yet, NYX.

At the risk of typecasting the poor girl, anyone else think Summer Glau would look good with her own set of claws?
