Im suppose to check out GI.Joe this weekend because I didn't get a chance on opening week. Wow it sounds like you have the movie script right here on topix lol. You have the perfect plot for the future story line with Cable, Sinister and Apocalypse. I remember in the cartoon that Cable had to go back twice or there times because each time something was wrong in the future. That two part Apocalypse movie would be epic if they could pull it off. I think you should send someone this idea in film, but knowing them they change something for the kids lol.<quoted text>
Well I just think they got the wrong people doing their stories, who ever they have, are just picking popular characters randomly and making up stories with them, then getting rid off them without knowing their back ground or how they connect to other cool characters or stories.
As you know they're doing X-Men (Days of Future Past) which is going to be weird version of it, since they're using first class as their past and 2000's x-men as future....oh well.
You bring up a good point Magneto being too old, which makes me wonder if they will ever bring Pietro, Wanda and Lorna into the story line.
Also there is a story line in the x-men universe where Magneto uses the machine from the super soldier project to rejuvenate him self, they could that to bring Fassbender and McAvoy into the present x-men.
I think Apocalypse story needs a 2 movie set up first spend 15 to 20 mins going back to ancient times to set up his story and his connection to Mister Sinister then have the x-men trying to stop Mister Sinister from using Cyclops and Jean to power him up, heck you can even mix the story with where Magneto gets rejuvenate and add the professor as side story in both movies, then use the second part to stop Mister Sinister and Apocalypse from taking over the world it is just an idea and then introduce Cable and Bishop coming from the future to help, that would be my idea of how to set it up.
I agree with you Cable is underrated and he could be use into a bad azz time traveling movie.
About Sauron don't get me wrong it can be done, but his story line with the Savage Land and Ka-Zar it's hard to sell.
If you think about Sauron is the alter ego Karl Lykos kinda like Curt Connors is to the Lizard, so it is doable but you gotta do some clever story twisting to make it work.
So did you watch GI JOE?
I think one of the main problems also as far as them casting and story writing is that fact that maybe some of them have very little knowledge in stories of the past. The ones that made these XMen movies should have known how the cartoon and comic book went as far as like ages of characters, how this character is connected with the other, who to kill off and when etc. This also goes back to what was talked about earlier on the board about super heros being changed for the younger generation. I know it's not their fault that they may not know and didn't grow up in that time, but it takes away sum of the luster in the movie. I see it in a lot of these movies these days especially the remakes.
