    At the end of The Last Stand, Xavier is alive. Well, however, might be a different story, and there's also the question of whether he retained his powers.

    ^And why would he still look like Patrick Stewart?

    If "P.Xavier" happens to be a twin brother...

    The man in the bed was played by Patrick Stewart, so he does look like Xavier, whether it makes sense or not. :)

    Calm down dear. The civil rights analogy only goes so far; racial minorities in the USA don't contain individuals with the ability to enter the White House at will or use the Golden Gate Bridge as a weapon.

    And it'd only a movie. No need to get quite so worked up about it. Hell, we're dealing with a continuity wherein the Cuban Missile Crisis involved a fight between mutants...

    PS - as for the cold warriors thing - haven't you heard the way John McCain and other American politicians speak about Vladimir Putin?

    The modern day of Days of Future Past in the comic were set in 2014...so I'm sure that could still be in tact for the film. Singer talked about the sequel being possibly set in the 70's early on too.

    1973? The non-uniform fashion's going to be fun! Be great if Singer slipped in a Luke Cage cameo. Would seem... so right.

    I would love to see an X-Men movie set a little later than that-- mid 70's to early eighties set during the disco craze. I would totally love to see Dazzler fully decked out in her full disco gear on-stage.

    It would be pretty awesome to see Dazzler.

    So they decided not to go with the JFK assassination stuff? Good.

    Yeah, I'm glad they decided against that idea, but I am surprised by the 10+ year time jump. I wonder how they'll handle that in regards to the younger actors.

    Oh, I wish, but I think Marvel have the Cage rights. There was some talk of Marvel allowing Avengers tower to appear in last year's Amazing Spider-man, but this sees unlikely.

    Now, if Fox had agreed to let Joe Carnahan do his 1970s-set Daredevil movie and retained the rights to hornhead...

    They're all older in real life than they were playing in XMFC anyway, so I don't see it being a problem.

    No thank you. :)

    Republicans being unable to move on from the Cold War does not a resumption of said Cold War make.
