100% comicbook Apoc on the big screen would've been awesome, but only Disney could get it right, with TONS of good CGI and luck.

Not sure I'll go. Been slowly losing interest since the first class. The amount of inconsistencies in these movies. If you're going to replace 90% of the original cast just reboot the whole thing already instead of keeping this messed up continuity. Time travel retcon has never been a good plot. Also the last three movies were centered around Mystique which i'd be fine with if she had some sort of connection to the comicbook character. But its like they've created a completely new character that happens to have a similar name and powers to a certain comicbook character. If I had to make a comparison with another franchise it feels like watching a 2 hour long Star Ward Christmas Special to me. Same universe but completely different characters I can't get myself to care about.

Valid reasons to dislike those movies, sure...

... but your credibility died when you admitted you liked TASM 2.

It's the excitement of seeing Spider-man portrayed accurately. I still say that this is the best Spider-man portrayal on the big screen to this today. It just wasn't a very good movie for an average (non-Spider fan) viewer. On the other hand X-men movies might as well be a fanfic at this point.

erm

So Parker uses his super-science to create an automatic lock in his room so he can masturbate to some photos of an average blond girl from his class?

Continuity gets messed with all the time, in comics themselves, too. DOFP was a fantastic movie, guess you're just not a fan of Xavier/Mags bromance/conflict. There are entire megathreads about them - more than 50 years of comics. Very interesting read, I may link you later.

The way i see the movies is that they're another universe

like with the comics you have the 616, Ultimate universe (Which now is with the 616) and all the various other ones.

No, that would be an accurate portrayal of any male teenager's life. I'm talking about heroics mixed with humor. Character in general like that scene with a kid who was bullied in an alley etc.

Actually Magneto/Xavier bromance is the part I like about the movies. It's all the other stuff. Like how the fck did X-men became a story about a love triangle (square?) between Magneto/Charles/Mystique/Beast. Also when they started Xavier was a wrinkly old man in a wheel chair, while Jean, Storm etc. we're in their late 20s early 30s. Now they are all roughly the same age. Because screw it, time travel. Just dress them all up in jumpsuits and helmets and call the movie "power ranges". These movies have about as much incommon with them as they do with the X-men comics.

What? They are not all the same age. The new Jean, Scott and Storm all look to be in their late teens in this, while Xavier has entered his early 40's (And both he and Alex Summers are rocking that early 80's Duran Duran hair, as this is set in 1983, right?) Mystique ages at a much slower rate due to her powers.

The gap between them is not consistent. At least not based on their appearance. Unless Xavier went from Mcavoy to Stewart in like 10 years. I think either cinemasins or honest trailers actually did the math on that and Xavier must age faster than normal. Wouldn't be the first age related inconsistency. Emma Frost has some sort of Benjamin Button thing going on.

The age stuff is inconsistent, and I think we're supposed to imagine ourselves that they(Stewart and Macavoy) look the same Lol

Why will be a trainwreck? They righted the ship with First Class five years ago, and Days Of Future Past was best and most profitable one yet. I think they've got it all on the right track.

Bryan Singer, though it depends more on the script and how much input he had in to it.

Singer and company announced X-Men: Apocalypse in the fall of 2013, while he was in post production of Days Of Future Past. It's why the teaser at the end was a young Apocalypse assembling the pyramids in ancient Egypt with telekinesis. It's been planned for a long time, not something rushed together after DOFP. Singer has input, has been behind this entire prequel trilogy.

^ Singer had a lot of input for the last 2, but I think Vaughn was most directly responsible for First Class (my favourite X-Men movie), and he had a lot of involvement in the story/script for DOFP as well.

Vaughn has Zero involvement in this one. It will be pure Singer, which is worrying tbh.

Well, I had legitimate fears about BVS based off of the trailers. And I was disappointed with the final product.


I have the same fears with X-Men: Apocalypse based off of what I've seen from the trailers. So, I'm not expecting much from it.
