Agreed. No more of this stuck in the past nonsense. Bring everyone back to the present. Though I'm sure if I agree about the apocalypse movie, because I still haven't seen it yet.  :P. It just didn't look that interesting. A new 'bad guy' , but still with round 12 of magneto's man pain...ugh, enough already.

If I had to guess, I'd say that now that the First Class trilogy has ended, everything from now on will be in the present. That's my hope anyway.

LOL - I had not thought of it that way even though I recognized it. Too much man pain, agreed and they had to use some of the footage from the other films to nail it home. LOL
It was a bit much.

Me too. The films don't have to be "dated" as it were. I also hope for the present as well.

I'm a little concerned because Kinsberg? Said that the next movie would be in the 90's, following the pattern. But hopefully apocalypse 'underperforming' (combined with first class underperforming) convinces them that the general audiences isn't as interested in the period pieces as they are. And maybe they should finally forget about that and moved 'back to the future'.

Heck if they like the new 'students, they can keep them and pretend they've aged a couple decades with nothing more than a haircut (like they've done with all the first class people.  ;D

Yes, the FC trilogy is done, but they have those actors signed on for at least another film. There's no way they got that young talent to sign on for ONE film. They'll have at least one more and have be presented to us ten years older, but IMO the only X-kid that could pull off being in their 20s is Sofie. The rest of them are still short and awkwardly growing into adulthood (the kids: Nightcrawler, Cyclops and Storm). Well maybe Storm actress too. Its easy to make girls look older. I WOULD LOVE A X-MEN MOVIE SET IN THE 90S.

ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!

I loved Nightcrawler in Apocalypse. I thought the look was great. I'd love to see that guy play Nightcrawler again. I also liked the choice for Storm.

Jean and Cyke were alright. Cyke sort of reminded me of the guy they had play Reed in Fantastic Four.

I could be down for 'one more', but only if they break the past pattern of having good characters, only for them to stand around as colorful wall paper, while mags goes though round 13 of epic manpain with Charles as his long suffering battered girlfriend.  :P
