I dunno how reliable this site is, but I actually think it's a good idea to go this route

@Thunderscream: I love the story, but idk how they are going to implement w/o kitty and wolverine. IIRC weren't they the big dogs for that arc?

if they are doing a days of the future past story it has to involve rachel summers..... shadowkat cant just send her powers back in time thats stupid & out of her power set range..... but if thats the case the whole x-men movie franchise will have to be retconned because scott & jean both died in x3

It doesn't matter to me. I dislike the x-men prequels because they don't move the story forward.

@moywar700: But if they go to the future is it not, technically, moving forward? hahaha jk

This would be difficult to pull off because Kitty Pryde was a major part of this story and she wasn't in First Class. So they would have to find a way to introduce the second generation X-Men into the sequel.

They need to merge the FC cast with the X-Men cast. Am I the only seeing the problem of too many characters here? If its a FC sequel, which is an X-Men prequel, Jean and Scott have to be alive post X3 to make Rach Summers, unless they do something radical and change the story... Screw it, Marvel!! Reboot Time!! Bring Out 'The UNCANNY X-Men'

Disney needs to buy back the rights I want an REAL X-Men movie.

Its completely possible to cover this storyline without Kitty or Wolverine, just have the mind swap happen with someone else....they did it in "Wolverine and the X-Men" They can do it here.
 
Why are comic fans so locked in some sad little world where nothing can be changed or altered from the source material??
 
I am not to keen on it anyways, we have already seen the dystopian future where some people are being hunted with the Terminator franchise, 2 X-Men cartoons and even Heroes had a season with a similar storyline, I am sure they will a develop a clever story if its the same team as First Class......so I will remain optimistic

Don't be duped people, this isn't going to be accurate to the comics. We all know how Fox does it by now. They don't care about the source material. The last movie was called X-Men: First Class and the real First Class wasn't anywhere to be seen. Best believe it'll be something completely different from what most of you are expecting.

I agree. At this point, I just given up on the idea that comic book movies would ever actually stay true to the comics.

They shouldn't have too!!
 
When they hire a director and creative team to do a film it should be the material in their vision....like Nolan and his Batman films...or Bryan Singer and his X-Men films......or why would they bother hiring any talented directors at all?? They could get a twelve year old comic fan to do it. If you want the exact story from the comic....go read the comic.
 
I find it hilarious that the X-Men are always the first to get blasted for inaccuracy, although more things from their films were incorporated to the comics than any other comic movie....well, until recently.
 
Bottom line is I feel the X-Men movies are judged to harshly...like its cool to make fun of them or something.....
 
Obidiah Stane has something to do with Iron Mans origin in his film: People love it!!!!
 Sebastian Shaw has something to do with Magnetos origin in his film: People complain to no end
 
I hate comic fans.......sigh

Well, after Avengers, all these other studios are trying to pull off the same thing - Fox is trying to merge the X-Men First Class characters with the original trilogy's characters, Sony is trying to make a Venom movie then tie him in with The Amazing Spider-Man - and obviously, Warner Bros is trying to make a Justice League film... This war will never be over :/

- BUT, I am excited to see this after how surprised I was after seeing First Class - even though the film had the worst continuity errors (still not sure if it's a reboot) it was still a decent movie.

X-men 3 and Wolverine origins prove that movie writers changes to source are outright horrible.

#19 Posted by X35 (5974 posts) - - Show Bio

Hope Mimic and Polaris are cast members. It would be nice to have a "First Class" team including the often forgotten latecomer members of the first class. Heck a team of Beast, Banshee, Havok, Mimic and Polaris would be a pretty acceptable alternative to the "first class" imo.

@moywar700: It's mean't to be a whole different world it's not a prequel to the previous films.

hahahahahahaha i agree with reboot the x-men. however i feel that they could got the route that star trek went when if used time travel as a way of rebooting the whole movie timeline to make room for this new star trek cast. if done right it could work rather well

true that why disney needs to get the rights back and make a proper x-men movie happen.

I am not sure this story line would be well served in a cinematic medium. There are a lot of characters, a lot of sets/environments and with time travel added as an element, it runs the danger of making the action in the film appear invalidated by the conclusion of the movie. Also, it might appear to be nothing but a Terminator knock off visually. Not sure they can pull this off.

#24 Posted by danhimself (21904 posts) - - Show Bio

there's no point in saying they can't do it without Kitty because they're going to call it DoFP but it will be nothing like the comic counterpart...just like all of the other X-men movies

Well that's a huge jump forward... If they can pull it off then I'm down.

I have hope, First Class, dispite it have nothing to do with the REAL First Class, was actually pretty god damn entertaining.

Can we expect any new or returning characters (aside from Wolverine. I have a hunch he is going to be in X:DOFP)

Kitty, Storm, Bishop, Sentinels?

#29 Posted by SHAZAM117 (2171 posts) - - Show Bio

I really don't care what the title is, it's been 4 films and still no Sentinels?!..What the hell!..Just give me an epic battle of mutants vs Sentinels already!

they named the first "first class" & it was nothing about the first class of x-men. now it's "days of future past" & it will be nothing about the days of future past.

To be fair, writers keep on redefining what the actual "first class" was anyway.

it would be better if they brought the real "first class" jean ,scott ,hank ,bobby & warren facing the real "first class" threats like magneto ,the brotherhood ,unas the untouchable & the blob. the movie was great but if we compare it to the comics, it was kinda lame. angel salvadore ,havok ,darwin ,banshee they were all the first class of x-men !!!! mystique was like charles's sister !!! shaw killing magneto's mother !!!!!!! moira is an american goverment agent !!!! if i kept on going i'll never end. i just hope they don't blow it up in the next movie. but i did enjoy the movie but not as a comic book movie, i enjoyeed it as an action sci-fi reguler movie.

Actually it is going to be at least somewhat based on the DOFP storyline from the comics.

I'm thinking its gonna suck.
