Rebecca Romjin and Jackman were like homages, why do you think none of the things in 1st Class added up with the past films? Vaughn admitted it himself that it was a nod. 1st Class is suppose to be a weird prequelboot.
The director himself calls it a mixture of prequel and reboot and it ignores plenty of different events but technically it is suppose to be a start of a new franchise.
“My main goal was to make as good a film that could stand on its own two feet regardless of all the other films.” said Vaughn. “However I thought anything that worked in all the other movies, and I could have some fun with nodding towards, I would. But my main rule was, ‘You know what, we’re trying to reboot and start a whole new X-Men franchise’ and therefore, making a film work on its own two feet was far more important than trying to be referential to the prior movies.”
I admit though i's weird, in other interviews, mostly earlier interviews form that link, he says it isn't a reboot.
Replaying Magnetos origins just happens to be the same origins/story, keep in mind 1st Class originally started as a Magneto and ProfX separate origin films. It makes sense to show Magnetos origins are the same but along with their friendship, that really is kind of where it ends but Mystique being ProfX's best friend and they hardly acknowledged each other in X1-X3, not even a mention and she came close to killing her "best friend" in X2 by putting that poison on Cerebro. You really could put many, many inconsistencies here to show why this supposed prequel isn't true to the timeline and I think this is what DofP is trying to solve/fix. We'll see though.
If Singer makes that costume and doesn't make Magneto their father, then all hell would break lose.
Wut? ... Wut?
Really not sure what you don't get from that?
SWs costume isn't very SW and some are calling it "genius" for some reason.
So? That's the big pass he's gettin? nerd.gif
Again, see above. If Singer had SW wearing that in XMen, people go nuts, in a bad way. Of course nothing beats his QS.
I am not on the defensive, it's a discussion. Why am I always on the defensive when I reply and happen to disagree? laugh.gif
You put the Mandarin and the fact that Marvel doesn't have Magneto's rights on Joss, though.
How is that defensive though? If you don't have the rights, don't butcher their origins. Just don't mention their father or pick other members perhaps? Whedon is smart enough to think of something else. Would be great to just never mention their father and just hint on it as a FU to Fox, Marvel doesn't really need to go that low but it'll be fun to see. At the end of the day, this was just a rumor though so really no point in discussing it, just got to wait if there is indeed a backlash to making their father someone else.
Anyways, Hulkbuster fist from the ABC Marvel special.Edited by RFX45 - 3/25/14 at 5:05pm
