OK, so we had the first two by Bryan Singer and if you were not a DIE-HARD X-men fan, were …eh OK. Then Singer left to make his godawful Superman returns. THAT movie had potential, but he forgot he was doing an action movie, not a drama.
Part 3 comes along and says, “We are going to throw every mutant ever mentioned ever in this movie. No matter if they come from different time periods or titles.”.We all thought we were all getting a “Dark Phoenix” movie, that would have been awesome, but we got crap.
So movie executives think, I guess the do, and decide to make a movie with the most popular character, Wolverine. Sounds good so far, then they made it.We spend half the movie with a Wolverine that cries, yes CRIES. Blah, Blah, snickt, snickt killing ensues movie over. OH NO, I FORGOT. They put Deadpool in that abomination. Ryan Reynolds played a great Wade Wilson, but what they did to me, um Deadpool, was unforgivable. Come on, Laser eyes, swords that came out of his arms and a mouth that was sewn shut. The MERC WITH A MOUTH had his MOUTH sewn shut!
I am gonna be sick, hold on.
OK back. that was a repressed memory and caught me off guard. Where were we? OH, X-men First Class. Now if this were just a superhero movie, it was great, but it was supposed to be the X-men. Fresh and young, no matter Scott Summers looked the same age as Professor X. And AGAIN, they placed every mutant they could dig up and shoved them in here.
Well now they have finally started work on “The Wolverine” and First Class 2. Here is what someone had to say.
It’s called ‘Days of Future Past.’ It deals with aspects of that comic, but also some very new things.
— Bryan Singer, producer
- If you read the comics, then you’ll recognize that Days of Future Past is actually one of the more popular storylines that ran in The Uncanny X-Men, which alternated between present day and an alternative dystopian future as the X-Men fought off Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
- The script for the movie is still being written, but if everything goes on schedule, then it’ll hit theaters as planned by July 18, 2014.
- The film will be directed by Matthew Vaughn, and you can expect the original cast of First Class to come back in full force.
- The sequel will be touching on other aspects of the entire X-Men film franchise. In Bryan’s words, we might be seeing more ‘connectivity.’ Could this mean that we’ll be seeing more crossovers and spin-offs in the future?
Hate it already. Hey let us do that magical thing Christopher Nolan did with Batman, START OVER! And give me my DEADPOOL back!
