There should be an "X-Men" reboot!

Post  Comicbookfan-V2 on Tue Jan 11, 2011 10:10 pm

Now where do I begin with this one? Rolling Eyes

Now despite the fact that the first film "X-Men" was okay, second film "X2: X-Men United" was actually good (Surprisingly they were both directed by Bryan Singer) but the third film "X-Men: The Last Stand" (Which was directed by Brett Ratner) was just mediocre then later there was the spin-off "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" which was just as good as X2:XMU (Aleast in my opinion) and now we have the upcoming prequel "X-Men: First Class" which will take place sometime before the first film.

Now what I really want to know is this... Why are they focussing on a prequel to a not-so-good Marvel franchise rather than rebooting it from scratch? Aleast rebooting it would have fix everything that was wrong with the "X-Men" film franchise and make up for all the flaws it left behind. Marvel franchises like "Fantastic Four", "Daredevil" and even "Spider-Man" are getting their own reboots, I mean Fantastic Four & Daredevil I can understand but Spider-Man didn't even needed a reboot and yet the franchise is getting one anyway despite already doing so well, but when it comes to the X-Men that needed a reboot that franchise doesn't even get one!

I think the main problem of all this is the film studio 20'th Century Fox has been making most if not all of the "X-Men" films all focus solely on Wolverine so much to the point that the films were more like "Wolverine" films just with "X-Men" characters, and then they go forward with the "X-Men" spin-off XMO:W as though as if the "X-Men" films weren't enough about Wolverine as it is! Plus, I begin to wonder that Bryan Singer isn't the type to provide enough action nor is he fond of anything that is action oriented for some suspicious reason! This would probably explain why the first film turn out the way it did while the second film turn out even more superior! But the same thing couldn't be said for the third film which was greatly disappointing at best!

So I got to ask again... Why isn't Marvel thinking about rebooting "X-Men" just when it needed to be?

Seriously I gotta know!!! Mad

Honestly? In my opinion, you can summarize it all in with two words:

01- Hugh
02- Jackman

Rebooting almost necessarily means getting rid of him. He's pretty iconic in the role. He defines that character for a lot of people and ejecting the Singer-originated continuity for a reboot (something I'd be in favor of, actually) would pretty much mean you'd need to hire a new actor to play Wolverine.

Part of my dread though actually ties back to Wolverine. My fear is that the new Logan would be less Hugh Jackman and more Robert Pattinson. Because, y'know, when I think "hard-edged, pissed off, cigar-smoking mutant with razor sharp claws struggling to keep his animal tendencies at bay"... I jolly fucking well think "Robert Pattinson" or some similar type of candy ass.

Not really on topic but X3 takes a lot of shit (in some ways, rightly so). Still, the strongest link in the enterprise, for my money, is Brett Ratner. He's possibly the one thing that didn't go wrong in that movie.

Don't forget, Bryan Singer is the "Producer" for this film. So no way they were going to reboot the X-Men.

I still wish marvel would get the rights back. So they can ut them in the new/ arvel movie verse we have. But probably wont happen for a long time. That is really only time I rather have a true reboot for the characters. Fox has screwed them up so much.

I'm starting to wonder about this, actually. I haven't really followed the production of this movie at all but is First Class a reboot? First Class seems to bring a severe number of contradictions with the Singer continuity, plus the timeline seems "adjusted" to accommodate the Cuban Missile Crisis.
