    X (The next X-Men movie)

    Just thought I'd start the inevitable thread with the news that Ethan Embry has been cast as Nightcrawler and some other guy is playing Pyro and those are the only new mutants in the movie.

    No Gambit.

    Sounds cool, I have always liked Nightcrawler. Who is the new bad guy in this one? Does anyone know yet?

    also heard Beast was in it,They also said that Gambit was not in it because wolveren was going to be the only funny rebel in the moive and they thought there was no need for Gambit.

    Last I heard, the story revolves around Magneto again (since Ian signed up for two films like everyone else) and Sentinels and more tidbits about Logan's past that will bear fruit in the third film.

    And no Beast. Since neither Nightcrawler nor Pyro are the Beast.

    Never liked that pretty boy cajun!

    Actually, I really wouldn't be interested in seeing any characters in the film that didn't appear in the books until post byrne/claremont. I love Nightcrawlerl, and look forward to seeing him on the big screen. I just hope that X2, DD, and the rest of the comic book movies are decent, so as to keep them afloat in theaters. "Batman & Robin" left a pretty big bad impression in hollywood, and we're only now recoverine.

    No Beast? Well that blows! Seeing Monsters Inc. gave me great hope for the possibilities of the Beast's look. I actually like the human look better, but knew that version would never be in the movie. Oh well, Beast was my second favorite mutant so I guess it is all for the best that my vision of him isn't tainted by a movie. Like what happened to my favorite mutant, Jean Grey. They totally ruined her character by making her the "old woman" on the team.

    I kind of wish they weren't using Magneto again; but a contract is a contract.

    Yeah, I noticed that Nick Pappageorgio from Yuma is playing Nightcrawler.
    I've never been into the comics, so I am disconnected in that sense . . . but I loved the first X film and can't wait for the second!

    Hey bigB, have you seen the X-Men DVD? There's an easter egg of concept art for Beast from when they were considering him for the first movie.

    Can I ask everyone who your favorite characters were from the movie? I loved Wolverine and Rogue plus I thought Magneto was brilliant. So those were my 3 faves. B, I'll have to disagree with you on wanting to see Magneto in X-Men 2.

    I thought Ian McKellan and Hugh Jackman gave great performances. They were both really into their roles and looked like they were having a good time. So was our boy Ray. He seemed to be having a lot of fun bouncing around, speaking with his natural accent.
    Patrick Stewart was good as the Prof.
    Tyler whatisname was good as Sabretooth. I wanted him to have a bigger part. More dialogue etc. I think as an "actor" he could have handled it.
    Marsden and Jansen were mediocre as Scott and Jean. I liked Marsden's stoic, hall monitor take, but he didn't have enough to do and Wolvie stole all his scenes. If the series has legs, I want to see one film focus on Scott and Havoc as the antagonist. It would give Marsden a chance to shine in the role. Rebecca Rojmin Stamos just looked blue and naked. But that was all she had to do.
    "Academy Award Winner" Halle Berry was crap and looked bored and looked like she didn't want to be there and did nothing but complain about her role and performed the worst out of the whole bunch.

    I think Magneto is the best bet for one more movie. Odds are they're going to run with X-Men for at least one more after this. The really great villains in Marvel are Spidey's or the FF's...the only top notch villain the X-Men dealt with first is Magneto. Mind you, there are other cool bad guys, but none that have gone as Marvel-Universally bad as Maggie. I hope they put a generous dose of Maggie and Xavier dialogue in, the chess game at the end of X-Men was smokin'! I didn't like their take on Toad, he's a comic relief lackey, not frickin Spider-Man. Crikey. No fault to Ray Park, he did very well.
    I was a little disappointed in Halle Berry as well, I think she's used to being more center stage. I wonder if she thought she'd have more screen time when she signed up and got mad once they started paring back her time?? I kind of thought it looked that way. The character Storm is one of my favourites, though. I hope she's back.

    From the actual movie I must say that I was most impressed with Hugh Jackman, he was perfect with the comic in his look and acting, at least how he looked when he appeared after Giant-Sized X-Men when John Byrne was drawing him (before he became a steroid freak). I didn't like how much they weakened his character (they obviously removed his whole "samurai" past as there is no way Mystique would survive two seconds against the comic book Wolverine.); but aside from all that, they simplified his character enough to make him accessible to new fans and that was good. That cage fight was so quintessential Wolverine that it made up for everything else.

    Rogue was good, even though she was totally rewritten.

    Magneto was awesome and I really don't mind seeing him in X2, I just hope we get some other cool villians to go with him. (I love the explanation they gave for the purpose of his helmet, brilliant)

    Sabertooth looked about 1000000 times cooler than any comic book rendition, he just needed to be more than a dim-witted thug.

    Cyclops was a moron (wearing your goggles in public,? great idea, idiot!)
    Jean was ruined, explained in my previous post
    Storm was boring and bored
    Professor X kept making me want to see the Starship Enterprise but otherwise great.
    Toad was funny and a definite improvement over the comic
    Mystique was ummmm.... interesting; but lobotomized like Sabertooth
