Has anyone seen X Men Evolution? You know the cartoon from earlier this decade.
I ask this because of recent comments, not only on this site but others as well. About the casting decisions for X Men First Class. Every post someone is upset because they're including so and so in the movie and they shouldn't be in it because they aren't part of the "First Class" story.
I go back to X Men Evolution. The cartoon didn't mimic the comics. Sure they had the same characters and similar backgrounds, but it didn't start with the five original team members. Did anyone have a problem with their decision to have the X Men go to school with the Brotherhood? Mystique a principal?
My point is, there's no reason to hate just because they're not following the already established story line. We've read the story we should know how it ends. Why would you want to see it repeated on the big screen when you know what is going to happen.
In 1987 people were like.. Michael Keaton as Batman?!?! WTF?
2007 people were like Heath Ledger as The Joker?!?! Aw Hell Naw!!
2006 people were like Topher Grace as Venom?!? okay that was bad...
The thing is the internet is never happy. But they're sometimes wrong.
