X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Post-Release - Page 24
The good thing about X-Men movies is they're designed for large ensembles. Most of the character arcs are tied into the powers, whether or not they can learn to control or accept them.
And questions of good and evil are complicated by genetic destiny. Is it wrong for the runner to run as fast as he can? And is it wrong for a mutant to be themselves even if that means shooting laser beams from their eyes?
So Apocalypse at the very least manages to give every single character something to do.
Man I wish I get could a get x men movie that actually cares about its team and develops them as such like first class with exciting actions scenes like the opening bit of future pass or multiple scenes in x2.
I use to will myself into excitement for x men movies because I love the property so much but it's basically become like watching a damn Thor movie for me. In the moment it seems cool but it all falls apart as soon as credits role. Sometimes during the watch. But, that's the problem with many comic book films. At least it allows me to better appreciate the ones I do love much more.
Racj82, dude...I wasn't calling you out or anything of the sort. Have a coke and a smile and get back in here and talk shit to us jeez louise..
I just want the dude to know there was never any like....actual anger towards him.
..and just speaking for myself...I don't need any sort of apology..
Not correct. Aside from having a few ideas of what he wanted to do, he never actually got to work on X3. When WB offered him Supes in 2004 he took it, as Fox was not giving him a green light to work on an X-Men project anyway. It was Matthew Vaughn that came in and did a lot of the work on that film only to abandon it two weeks before shooting, thus Ratner came in at the last minute. You could say X3 is as much Vaughn's fault.
filmnerdjamie likely has more details on what exactly went down with X3.
That's mostly accurate, except that Bryan Singer actually quit X3 to work on Superman Returns and that's when Matthew Vaughn came in. Singer has genuinely regretted the decision for years without a doubt, actually recall running into him once when I was out with friends drinking back in 06', and he was (albeit drunk himself) really humble and straight about the fact he regretted that decision.
