I was going to post this but wasn't sure which thread. I thought it was official until I read the credits. Very well done.

I loved Rogue from watching the 90's cartoon growing up and I felt like she was WAY underutilized in the movies. Maybe they were planning on her gaining her flight and super strength later on, but it just never panned out  :'(

Totally agree. Her backstory and development are cool elements of her character, but then we never saw the finished product, so to speak.

The 90's cartoon was also what got me into X-Men.

It kind of makes me sad that we won't get another X-Men film with the original cast. I was hoping that after Days of Future Past they could of cranked out one or two more, and bring back Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler.

And redeem James Marsden's Cyclops for being a complete pansy.

They'd have to change her story pretty drastically though since those powers came from Carol Danvers, and Marvel owns her.

Agree about Alan Cummings, what a great performance. But disagree with the rest. I think they need to shut down the whole machine and just start with in the Deadpool universe.

Outside of the DCEU, FOX seemed to totally not get more of their characters than any other of the companies, including Sony.

They got Professor X and Magneto, as well as Beast, Nightcrawler and..........at the very very end, Wolverine.

But that's about it. They completely missed the point with Cyclops, Jean, Sabertooth, Mystique, Havok, Angel (both of him), Apocalypse, Jubilee, Pyro, Ice Man, Psychlocke, etc etc.

Start over, and find writers/directors that are more interested in the characters than star power and explosions.

:iagree: for the most part.

I think they did ok with Colossus... but totally under-utilized him.  Famke did good with what she was given, and I just can picture the new ginger-chick (too lazy to go look her name up) as Jean/Phoenix.

Every other character has been either filler, or totally mis-used - with Cyclops v1 and Mystique v2 being the worst offenders

Deadpool Colossus was almost eerily accurate. American Colossus who just walks around with TVs missed the point. Looked good though.

Agree on Colossus.

The new actor playing Jean is from Game Of Thrones.

I can't disagree with that... there were some stupid moments with him.  I just didn't like the 'thickness' of him in Deadpool - he felt like a video game character.  To me, he's always been a taller/slender stature.  The girth of him in Deadpool is what I always though of Juggernaught to be.  I think the way he was physically portrayed in the x-men franchise is what I was trying to insinuate was done "ok".

So Josh Brolin, who is currently Thanos in the MCU, has officially been cast as Cable.


Well that was a totally unpredictable conclusion to that cast hunt.

I was just about to post about this Adami lol.

The reports I'm reading is he signed a 4 picture deal with the X-men franchise. Not only will he appear in Deadpool 2, but very likely in other X-men films and/or Deadpool crossovers. If Mr. Sinister is suspected to be the big baddie for next X-men movie, this makes a lot of sense.

Also, 4 movies. I think I have a idea of whats going to happen in Infinity Wars   :lol

Well he'll be in Deadpool 2, and probably 2-3 X-Force movies.

Not sure I even want him showing up in an X-Men movie, since those are currently the worst parts of the X-Men universe.

Just saw Logan over the weekend.  That was incredible, and I'm going to miss Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.  They gave him one hell of a film to go out on though.  Brutal, violent, and so much more real and less comic-booky.

Completely agree! Most unusual film of the series. Outstanding work also from Patrick Stewart.

I just finished the Death of Wolverine comic series - the 12 issue Wolverine from 2013, and the 4 issues.  Now on to the after event tie-ins.  Somewhat disappointed... there wasn't much of a connection between the 2013 series, and the actual Death of series.  His actual death felt rushed, but the last few pages/panels were very good.
