    I hope their leave will be the one that will convince Fox to give the X-men back.

    They are never going to do that. If they're STILL considering to make more FF movies considering how much money they're losing on it, they will never give up any more rights. They will burn all the money in the world if they think they can get lucky and have lightning strike.

    (Lol at someone here still being naive enough to think that logic and reason are applicable to FOX.)

    That said, in the unlikely chance that it ever happens, there's literally nothing stopping the MCU from recasting Fassbender as Magneto, McAvoy as Professor X, or any other other actors that previously played the character as that character again beyond the actor just not wanting to do it and, I guess, the time-line since both Professor X and Magneto should be old as fuck in 2016.

    You know, nothing's impossible, McAvoy and Fassbender could simply renegotiate their contracts. Or have Mystique in a very small role. Or film her and then delete all their scenes in the editing room XD

    If ppl are still getting "hyped" about Wolverine movies, I get what you are saying...

    Yeah, they would have to bomb three reboots in a row to consider giving back the rights back to Marvel sigh. Maybe one day when I'm Fagneto old I'll get to see an X-Men movie done right (X2 was really good actually)

    It's finally here, X-men vs Inhumans

    As the heroes of the Marvel Universe stand against one another, the Mutants will face their own war. Today, Marvel presents your first look inside CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1 – a new Civil War II series from writer Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men) and artist Andrea Broccardo (Kanan: The Last Padawan)!

    Terrigen Mists encircle the globe, igniting the Inhuman race while simultaneously crippling mutantkind. As conflict between the two nations simmers below the surface, a new Inhuman with the ability to profile the future has emerged. As heroes of the Marvel Universe battle over whether to use this Inhuman’s ability or not – one mutant will take matters into his own hands. Fearing this untapped power may tip the scales in the Inhumans’ favor – Magneto is willing to wage war with the Inhumans and even his own kind to prevent that from coming to pass!

    No longer sitting on the sidelines, Magneto will use his terrifying and awesome power to take mutantkind’s fate into his own hands! Though he may be surprised who stands with him…and who stands against him! The battle lines are drawn this June in CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1!

    Quicksilver is once again made stupidly overpowered to the point where the confront against Apoc little sense.
    I intended to put Gohan into the leading role. It didn’t work out. I felt that compared to Goku, he was ultimately not suited for the part.

    (Yeah, FOX's version of Quicksilver is closer to how overpowered The Flash should be in anything than actual Quicksilver.)

    As such, as shit as Singer is, even an actually talented director and screen-writer would be hard-pressed to not have a character's who power is super speed not destroy the plot unless there was some actual drawback to it. The problem with X-Men Quicksilver (and any version of The Flash) is that there simply isn't.

    At least in Days of Future Past, you make the excuse that he was a minor whom they didn't want to get in any more potential trouble than already breaking a world-class criminal out of the Pentagon. I'm not sure what the excuse here is, if any, for him not being able to play at least some pivotal role in murking Ivan Ooze Apocalypse. Shrug.

    yeah flash in theory is one of the most broken characters ever. he should have gundam level plot armor like batman....but doesnt. the character can literally take peoples ability to move in any sort of way and thinks faster than anyone can.

    (Yeah, The Flash is busted. I don't think anyone who knows anything about him would disagree on this except for maybe Batman or Superman (or Green Lantern?) groupies.)

    Even baseline Quicksilver would likely be problematic plot-wise depending on what the problem in the plot is, but The Flash even at his just "runs very fast and doesn't have any other completely broken powers" higher speed limit is already 100 times worse even before you bring the Speed Force bullshit into the equation. It's why if I ever do superhero stuff, then speedsters either fault aren't existing or have some type of (serve) drawback that's actually a drawback.

    The only series I can think of that handled people with super-speed well was/is Worm, where the one character who has super-speed is hindered by having his mass become inversely proportional to his speed, so he basically comes off as an annoying if strong and persistent gust of wind the faster he goes. This as opposed to other characters with super-speed who should be able to murder like half a dozen people in the blink an eye like how Faora-Ul did in Man of Steel and generally be unstoppable by most people in general, super-powered or not, if they're competent; gods, Faora-Ul was the one of the few good things about that terrible movie.

    I thought after DoFP they were going to introduce some "secondary effects" of Quicksilver's super speed, a cardiac problem for example ("running so fast is destroying you"), to limit his powers and making him a little more interesting. They didn't. Don't know how to feel :P

    (Worm is independently written and not a comic book, @maxx.)

    Here: https://parahumans.wordpress.com/. It's currently free, but mindful that it's long. I got over a million words into it before pausing last November and I still need to finish it, so...yeah.

    It's first point of view and the main character's powers are related to bugs; the speedster guy that I mentioned doesn't really play much of a role in to be honest. I was just using the one example I could think of the top of my head where someone with super-speed wasn't implicitly broken.

    Glad didn't spent money for every FoX-men movies since X2.
    It has to start somewhere
    It has to start sometime
    What better place than here
    What better time than now.....
  • jimmy1200jimmy1200 Joined: Posts: 8,872
    Finished it. Movie was trash. 5 out of 10 just cause. Probably a 2 or 3 is more accurate.

    I dont even know where to start, nor do i care to be honest.

    One thing is for sure, when you dont know what youre doing with your franchises, you dont have an epic build up since xmen first class to the point you get to now with AoA. They took a major deal arc like dofp and turned it into nonsense. Then they took one of the biggest xmen arcs ever, and just turned it into a completely useless cluster fuck.

    234 million dollar budget for those horrible graphics too. LMFAO. Where did the budget go to? The actors? HORRIBLE CGI.

    HAHA, this has a 7.6 on rotten tomatoes, because guys, remember, that site is so reliable for valid opinions.

    The only way you can like this movie, is if youre straight up retarded, or the most you know about xmen is there is a bald guy, and you dont give a shit other than that.

    Faora was probably the best representation of what super speed would look like to a normal human being. I actually liked that quite a bit. One of the few interesting things that movie did.

    X-Men movies have always been bittersweet.

    First Class was a better origin story for Xavier and Magneto than the shit we see in the comics.

    Days of Future Past was way better than the comics, it felt like the climax of the film series.

    Apocalypse is... um... entertaining at best. It could have been way better. There's not much deep to it and it feels a little redundant considering the past two films. And it's by no means the "definitive origin" of characters like Cyclops, Jean or Storm, sadly; those characters simply fail to engage.
