    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.

    Most likely yes since they recast and have been ignoring most of "Origins".

    Is it confirmed that he's getting a solo movie? I can think of very few characters that I have less interest in.

    I hope he can do the Cajun accent.

    X-Men movies finally as incomprehensible as the comics

    :lol:


    (and for anyone without a sense of humour, it's a satirical site)

    Bring it. I love convoluted alternate dimension time travel stories with evil clones!

    I love Cable but his history in the comics is far too convoluted to be filmable. :lol:

    I read that wholly unironically.

    :lol:

    Yeah, I would never have guessed it was supposed to not be a serious announcement. I was excited for a second that mayb we were getting Cable in a movie.


    I have to agree. I'm a big fan of Cable, but they would have to rework him a good bitto make him fit in a movie, and the end result probably wouldn't be worth it.

    It will be tough explaining how two dead people gave birth to someone.

    Probably the easiest way to manage it would be to say he's the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey from an alternate future and leave it at that. His whole thing is being a big badass soldier from the future, anyway, which shouldn't be that hard to sell onscreen.

    It's been said before that Stephen Lang would be a perfect Cable.

    He's an alternate future Wolverine in the Ultimate Universe. They could always go that route and still have a version of Wolverine after Jackman leaves.

    Recasting doesn't necessarily mean rebooting. No matter what happens with the time travel, Gambit in 1973 should be the same person we saw in Origins, just earlier.

    The Wolverine referred back to Origins and also led into DOFP with its stinger. Thus, DOFP and Origins are in the same continuity.

    Bryan Singer hopes that fans will just "forget" certain continuity errors.

    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.

    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).
