  1. I hold nothing as dear to my heart as I do the X-Men. I have faith that this movie is going to be butchered, but these are really cool posters.

      • Sorry in advance. This is a long comment. I can feel it.

        I liked X2. The first one was okay at the time, but I don’t think it holds up. X3 and Wolverine were. the. worst. …which is impressive to think that two things could equally be the worst at the same time.

        I hated HATED First Class. It took way too many liberties with the source material. Although every movie was its own fanfic, the others were released in a different era. Now that we’ve seen 7 Harry Potter books faithfully (for all intents and purposes) adapted into 8 films, I don’t see why we can’t have a world where comics are relayed in the same fashion, instead of reshuffling the deck. Its not so much that I dislike new, original stories as it is that I loathe the relationships among the characters so drastically altered… I guess they go hand-in-hand, so it’s a lose-lose proposition for me.

        For the X-Men, I’d condense the opening comics book issues with Magneto, his Brotherhood and the Sentinels into a singular movie. Maybe incorporate the Juggernaut in an throwaway opening scene, a newscast in which a reporter says that five mysterious people who appear to be teenagers thwarted this rampaging monster from whatever crime he was committing. Then move onto the meat with those other characters and plot points.

        Movie two goes wayyyyy forward to the Second Genesis, introducing Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Banshee, Sunfire and Thunderbird and the Krakoa story.

        Leap forward in time again to the next major story, etc.

        Or just take a major story form the comics and adapt that one into a singular movie or series of movies. The Phoenix Saga could easily be a standalone trilogy, for example.

        Instead, it really seems like, “LETS SLAP ALL THESE GUYS TOGETHER AND DO WHATEVER! HEY! DEADPOOL’S POPULARITY IS BASED OFF THE FACT THAT HE NEVER SHUTS UP, SO LETS GIVE THIS ROLE TO RYAN REYNOLDS, WHO IS ALREADY MOUTHY, THEN SEW HIS LIPS TOGETHER!” Yeah. Hollywood goldmine right there.

      • But… Tell us how you REALLY feel. Lol! 😉

        I like when people are passionate about stuff like this, though! I admit to knowing nothing whatsoever about X-Men other than what I’ve seen in the movies. I’ve read no comic books or graphic novels ever. (Well, other than Watchmen). But I’m a girl so that’s okay, right?! 😉

      • I hold nothing against you and know my expectations are unreasonable, but if Hollywood just did it that way from the beginning, all the uninitiated like you would have still loved the movies that came out, and so would I. Maybe this world is my hell for something I did in a past life. (My wife thinks I was either/both a viking and Native American during other eras. So I beheaded some Norsemen and scalped a few pilgrims. Do I really deserve to suffer through unfaithful portrayals of my favorite characters growing up?!?)

      • Lol! Well, I can still relate. I often try to read big books before they turn them into movies. And then get really pissed off when they change stuff! 😉
