Only way I'd settle for a quick Wolverine recasting was IF they gave the role to

Yup, she's pretty terrible.

Wolverine was always cooler than the other characters, it just is what it is. He was popular before they went hard on him, he was still popular even after Origins which was awful and the Wolverine which was mediocre. I'm pretty sure Wolverine is a lot more popular than the other members by far. Singer should have done a better job with the other characters but honestly the cast is so big for a few movies.

X-Men will draw but Wolverine added to it, no denying that. X-Men is popular enough on it's own to get a healthy return.

I don't expect every movie to be great but I expect it to be good and to at least try. Paying today's ticket prices for a 3 star movie isn't something I enjoy doing.
No you're right he always been popular he is number 2 to Spider-Man. I'm just saying in the movie verse they could have tried to make the others interesting so they could standout and have their own solos.

But to be fair most work better as a team other than Wolverine, Deadpool and Gambit would be the only ones who can hold a solo. Cable and Bishop future stuff maybe.

There are more than one team so New Mutants and X Factor could be cool if they have the rights to Alpha Flight that be awesome as well.

I understand why Fox wants to milk but I need better guys a need a Kevin to control this universe not a Bryan.

I cannot see any of the other X-Men having their own solo movies, except Gambit but they screwed the pooch on that!

A duo movie with Cyclops and Havoc would be great. It actually would be fantastic if done right!

Colossus would be good as a solo act if they had him be like Hulk and take on insanely strong bad guys.

Tom Hardy Wolverine :BELTRE


Colossus is nowhere near the power level of Hulk. He's also better playing off of other characters. He was a great contrast to Wolverine for instance. Wolverine was impulsive and reckless while Colossus was reserved and stoic. Together, they were unstoppable. Until Magneto showed up

I'm personally reading Age of Apocalypse there is about 3 volumes. There are different stories from different characters if they wanted to they could make movies based on their stories.

For example Cyclops and Havok have their own story together which is my favourite part and there is an X-Men team lead by Magneto.

Colossus is cool and all but I agree with Mrmister he plays of characters better, I like his sister though if the explored that some how. Idk I think the characters need to be fleshed out before they deal with a big threat. They don't try to make us care for the individuals unless it is Wolverine, they tried with Rogue in 1 I give them that but that wasn't her.

I know there is only so much they can do but Avengers and Civil War are team based movies that tried to give depth to most if not all the heroes. After seeing Civil War, X-Men have no excuse especially if Warner Bros nails JL.

Just realized movie Wolvie is the 80s Hulk Hogan of the X-Men movieverse... brother.

I hope they have the real Beast this time. I get it's a bitch for the actor to do the makeup, but please no more of the serum that makes him human. Hoult's a good actor, but his Beast is Beast in name and fur only. He acts nothing like him. I get why they did it that way in First Class, but he needs to be the real Beast now. That was one of the few redeeming parts of The Last Stand. Kelsey Grammar was a perfect Beast.

Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2, 2018)

Storm has a good storyline, I think she would be able to hold her own movie (I may be biased because she is my favorite, though). Really, though, I do like her story and think it could make for a good movie.

I think if the other characters are established in the movies more, people would be more interested in them. For those of us who have followed the X-Men for a long time, we already know the backgrounds, but, for people who don't and just know them from the movies, it can be a bit hard to care as much for other characters when pretty much all of Wolverine's past has been told a few times over and there really isn't any background on anyone else.

Ric Flair, you once called me a woman. Well, what I want to know is, how does it feel to get beat by a woman?

X-Men are just better as a team than trying to force them solo. They are the outsider family struggling for a place in the world.

Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2, 2018)

Yeah I think 6 characters could show their origins briefly in a 2 hour movie with a decent villain at the end to battle against. I personally would have liked to see a movie with Professor X just assembling a team. That's just me though.
