All these threads about superheroes (the Batman vs. Superman one and the ‘what superhero would you be’ one) have started me thinking about my favorite superhero franchise - the X-Men. Been reading the books since I was a wee Krunk and am still a fan. I was mildly disappointed in the movie, though. The casting was decent and the plot was about what you’d expect, but the movie had a feel like it was scripted more with a ‘what kind of cool special effects can we put into this sucker?’ rather than actually trying to make an interesting, gripping plot.
My questions for all the Dopers – what would you like to see in the next X-Men movie? What characters would you like to see (both heroes and villains)? For those characters, who would you cast? What plotlines would interest you?
