At the moment I can't say I'm loving the idea of so many of the characters from the other franchise in this one. Perhaps it will end up being great, which I hope it does, but it sounds more like a fourth film in the other X-Men series as opposed to the second in the First Class series. Perhaps they will do a good mix of it feeling like both but I want the focus to be on the First Class characters.
This entirely. It's just another sequel. Let's have the crummy cast of the first few movies recast.
I don't even want to see Gandalf or Picard again...
