Then they'll defeat him a second time preventing the snap from ever happening.

    Yeah...I'm not too hopeful about this one, not with the writer of X3:The Worst Stand taking another crack at the adaptation, the cheezy aftertaste of Apocalypse still in my mouth, and the prospect of Sophie Turner actually carrying a film...

    I still dont understand why back when they created first class they didnt go with the original first class. We would've at least had 3 movies to grow with Jean grey. She had zero character development and was in apocalypse and by then we've barely known her character. Stupid decision imo

    And that's my biggest beef with this film. Why do I care about any of these characters? Yes they "technically" are the same characters as the original movies, only younger, but there has been zero development of this version of each character, I have no vested interest in them and therefore no stakes in what happens. Seems really mishandled to just jump to this storyline, but I'm sure they wanted to tell the story and knew this was their last chance before the house of mouse took over and did the series correctly.

    There's a core of four characters all played by the same actors in all of these films: Prof X, Mystique, Magneto and Beast, and Quicksilver will now be in three. I suppose we'll have to feel or empathize through their reactions to things. Central to the Phoenix story though are Jean and Scott who were only introduced in the last film which was bloated with too many characters, not leaving much screen time to develop them, so in that sense I agree with you.

    The rise and fall of Phoenix to her dark side is a long and complex affair in the original comics, and has to be in order to have emotional impact. It really should be relegated to a X-Men television series with at least a full season devoted to it.

    Another issue I have are the decade jumps between films which now seems more like a gimmick to showcase different eras while the actors certainly don't look ten, twenty or thirty years older!

    The last film was so painfully bad I thanos'ed it from my memory. After the snap only about half of it remains...none good.

    People are complaining that it undid his character arc from Ragnarok and I don't agree. Thor has watched his mother, father, brother, sister and most of his people die. He's failed his people, and he had the chance to stop Thanos and didn't go for the head when it counted. He was already borderline in a depressed funk when he lost his hammer, even if he managed to figure it out and get his act together at the end of ragnarok, then his people were obliterated, his brother killed, his friend Heimdal killed, ect...

    When you are already on the verge, even if you manage to get things together, that much more piling on is going to mess with you so I don't have a problem with Thor just saying "you know what, I'm a miserable failure, I give up." Lebowski-Thor makes perfect sense to me.

    All of the things that people are complaining about (The Big Thorbowski: God of Thunder Thighs, Steve's choice at the end, ect...) They all make a lot of sense when you seperate the comics and the character's moral compass in the comics and look at everything from the human aspect.

    All in all I think the complaints are minor and don't detract from the fact that this movie was epicly amazing.
