All of the information is in the above title. Who else is Major excited for this. Bryan Singer of X-men and X2 is producing! Story focuses on the relationship of Magneto and Xavier and how the Xavier Institute was built. Casting begins soon :D

w00t! Which means young Jean, Storm, & Cyclops.:mis:

05-05-10, 23:48
YES. :jmp: Those were the two best in my opinion. And hopefully, Bryan will be able to re-achieve what he did with those first two movies.

05-05-10, 23:49
Can anyone think of any young black actresses who could play Storm. My minds went blank!

BoyTRaider
05-05-10, 23:51
With some make-up, Halle Berry might be able to pull it off... or maybe not. Lol

I still can't picture anyone being Storm besides her though.

I disliked Berry's interpretation, but then again that's my opinion. I'd love to see how Zoe Saldana would handle the role if they decide to make X4 :D

Her face isn't fierce enough if you get my meaning, I want someone who looks powerful and fierce like in the comics. Zoe just doesn't have that look.:p

Hmmm...I'm kinda excited but I'm kinda dreading if the films gonna go to far and be as disappointing as X-Men Origins well of course it was disappointing to me. I do think films go too far with sequels and prequels, even if its comics. Like The Matrix, I loved the first film and it was one of my all-time favourites and I couldnt wait for the sequel, of course the sequel was good but all it had for me was action sequences then I saw the second sequel and I thought "no it's ruined"...If people actually create movies and dont do a sequel for years then I think the film will have a massive impact like give you the "aww I wish there was a sequel feeling."

Other than that its from the guy who did Kick-Ass (the film) so hopefully it will live up.

Kick Ass was amazing, I have faith this movie is in good hands :tmb:

Then it'll be something like X-Men Evolution: The Movie? Eh, I don't know. It just needs to be serious enough to be X-Men, Kick-Ass was made with tongue firmly in cheek.

That's because the comic it was based on was just that and it was extremely faithful to the comic from what I know. So I have faith the director will be faithful to X-Men.

There is a rumor going around that Meagan Good will be cast as Storm.

I don't really like her....

I would actually really like Zoe Saldana in the role of Storm.

First, ew. I would murder someone.

Ans secondly, I really dislike the idea of Zoe, her face is too soft and not fierce enough for Storm.:p

06-05-10, 02:01
I don't really think that Halle has a very fierce face....

Zoe played a fierce character in Pirates...

At the very least, anyone would be better than Meagan Good....

CiaKonwerski
06-05-10, 02:09
Interesting. I will really miss all of the old cast however. :( Besides Magneto and Xavier probably.

Carbonek_0051
06-05-10, 02:09
@EG: I didn't think Halle had a fierce face either, which is why she wasn't my first choice as Storm.:p

I honestly don't know who could play her, Meagan Good can't act, Zoe while a good actress doesn't look fierce or young enough (assuming they are looking for a young Storm), and Halle, well she's just not good for Storm.

I think it would be better to find some unknown who will actually do a good job. Unknowns usually tend to be a good way to go.

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 13:20
Here's hoping Patrick is still Xavier and Ian still Magneto :)

OMG!:jmp:
I am sooo excited for this project!!!:cln:
More of Storm!:cln:
I seriously can't wait for this!!!:jmp:
And I hope Storm will have a proper, fierce actress!
She has unlimited potential!

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 13:32
I think that Meagan Good is a bit old to play Storm. She's 28. In the films I thought unlike Evolution Storm was around the same age as Jean and Cyclops. Here's hoping Mystique makes a return and Rebecca Romjin can still play her if she does because she's a shape shifter and can look as young as she wants :D

On the topic of black Saw actresses. How do you feel about Tanedra Howard. Yes, I know she's from a reality TV show but she has the strong fierce thing down to a T.

Tonyrobinson (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/member.php?u=28355), you know, I think she might work!:D

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 14:15
Here's hoping that they include Emma Frost in this after introducing her in Wolverine. Although preferably a hotter actress :tea:

silviu_raider
06-05-10, 14:20
I agree with you!:D
And I really hope we'll see much more of Storm.:pi:
She deserves it!

Definately want to see Emma in this film. She is one of my favourite X-Men characters at the moment. ( And my 4th favourite character overall behind Jean Grey, Cyclops and Psylocke).

Agree about the actress though - although I have no suggestions on who should play her. I'm hoping they recast Cyclops from Origins too... coz that guy was not pretty to look at. James Marsden I liked fine - young Cyclops not so much.

silviu_raider
06-05-10, 14:44
Agree with Buffy as well, but I have nothing against young Cyclops.:p
BTW, did you guys saw the deleted scene with little Ororo, in Origins?:cln:
I know it was short but she looked, well, the little girl, looked very good.
BTW, what more characters/actors do you think we should see in the new movie?
I loved the actors that played Xavier and Magneto, I really think they did one hell of a job!

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 15:01
I want to see Storm, Jean, Cyclops, Mystique, Emma, Xavier, Magneto, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Beast.

I can't wait to see how they show the mutations occuring if they do. Perhaps one of the best scenes in The Last Stand was of Angel trying to cut off his wings. I could see Sara Paxton as Emma and Chace Crawford as Scott.

Chace Crawford could do well as Scott, but I don't know about Sara Paxton.
She seems so... goody-goody.:p

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 15:08
She is quite goody-goody in appearence but I have seen her get her ***** on in some roles.

silviu_raider
06-05-10, 15:11
Uhhhh!:cln:
Sounds interesting!
I'd really love to see Mystique in there, especially the problems she had with her family, trying to kill her and such.
I think that'd make a great scene!:cln:
And also Storm learning how to control her powers, and her mood influencing the weather!:cln:

Chace Crawford :) I most certainly , certainly approve... if only coz he is amazingly pretty and I like a nice bit of scenery in my movies :P Love me some Chace!!!

I can't say I know Sara Paxton but she could work.

As regards who I want to see :

Jean, Cyclops, Storm, Emma, Psylocke, Beast, Xavier and maybe Polaris.. I dunno though I just quite like her.

Magneto, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Mystique.

I wouldn't be averse to seeing Gambit again either.

Seems we want primarily the same characters... as long as there is no token Wolverine appearance just for the sake of it I will be a happy happy girl. I have some hatred for Wolverine :P

EDIT : Only problem with including Polaris is she is basically a female version of Magneto - so they may not see the point I suppose. Ah well I like her.

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 15:14
I think the costumes should be the same as the First Class comic only with the yellow bits silver. That would look all kinds of awesome :D

http://larryfire.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/x_men_first_class_01.jpg

EDIT: On the subject of some young mutants I want me some Magma. She is awesome :D

silviu_raider
06-05-10, 15:20
Yup, Magma had potential as well!:cln:
And I love the black % yellow costumes as well.
Buffy87 (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/member.php?u=30569), I like Wolverine.:p
He's a deep part of me.:vlol:

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 15:23
Hopefully they stay close to the comic and we get some Machine man and Medusa as the villans :D

Hehe.. I would like Logan just fine if he wasn't everywhere all at the same time. Not a huge fan of the Wolverine/Jean "thing" either but that's a whole other issue. Besides Cyclops is waaaay better!!!! :P

Whilst I like(ish) the blue/yellow costumes I kinda like the movie style ones a bit better. I would probably prefer something like the movie style with slight character variations maybe...I dunno...I need to think about this. :P

Only thing I know for sure is that if Cyclops does not get a decent amount of screen time this time round I will be very very very very very angry!!!! And hopefully without Logan the cashcow he might do. :P

silviu_raider
06-05-10, 15:34
I'm not a fan of Jean/Wolverine thing as well!
I think he looked better with Storm or with the girl from the Origins movie.
And I agree, Logan is way into too many scenes.
There are lots of other characters as good, if not even better, as/then him!

Tonyrobinson
06-05-10, 15:38
Hopefully the Wolverine sequel will pair him off with Death Strike. Also, about Pyslocke appearing in this movie. I hope if they do they stay close to the character and make her British instead of Asian American. And give her purple hair. Incase you missed her in Last Stand this is her:

She's British and she should stay like this!:pi:

That was herr? I thought she was that lesbo who made that sonic boom...As I remember Magneto saying "Psylocke" and then this women and came up and clapped her hands...I know who Pyslocke is of course I recongise the british origin the purple hair and big purply/blue bloots as well as that sword thing...But I never saw her in The Last Stand...:confused:

That woman was Arclight if I recall correctly.... those mutants of Magneto's , Callisto, Psylocke and Arclight were all sort of weird hybrids IMO. Callisto seemed to be half Quicksilver and Psylocke was all odd too.

X-Men is dead to me after the 3rd one.

08-05-10, 14:43
I have real faith. If this stays true the comic, all kinds of win. <3

Cyclops, Jean, Beast in the Early Days (Beast was there before and left, if I remember TLS correctly) Iceman, and even if it doesn't make a hint of sense, Angel... <3333

But Psylocke's soul got put into a body of someone else didnt it? (in the comics I think)

Buffy87

Yup. Psylocke's mind was switched with that of an Asian woman named Kwannon. Therefore British Betsy was in Kwannon's body and Kwannon was in British Betsy's body.

Betsy ( in Kwannon's body) underwent some "conditioning" and became Lady Mandarin, an assassin for The Hand. This is when she gained the "psychic knife" that Psylocke is well known for. She regained her memories of who she used to be (i.e. British Betsy) and rejoined the X-Men.

At this point , Kwannon ( in British Betsy's body) reappeared calling herself Revanche and claiming that she was the real Elisabeth Braddock. Later Kwannon got the Legacy Virus and died - but her death caused British Betsy's memories to go back to Asian Betsy and removed Kwannon's left-behind memories from Asian Betsy.

A tad complicated I know but if I recall correctly that is the gist of it.
