    It's in everyone's best interest that the Generation X movie isn't mentioned. I think a logical inclusion in a new X-Men movie would be Havok. He's been around for a long time, one of the first additions to the original team. Plus, he's Scott's brother so they already have a connection for him.

    I finally watched this film tonight. It wasn't as bad as I was afraid it would be; in fact, it had a lot going for it in some respects. I am still bitterly disappointed not to get to see where Singer was planning to go with the story, though. After the gem that was X2, I think that would have been something to see. As is, this was perfectly adequate, and did a fine job capping off the trilogy. It included some very neat things, and some very upsetting things. I can't say it was brilliant, however. Oh, and the pacing was all off. A lot of dramatic potential lost that way.

    Also, I'm sure this has been discussed to death so I may go through and look at some of what's been said later, but I'm mad confused about both the ending and the post-credits scene.

    Yeah, Ratner doing X-men 3 is not a tragedy like Lester doing Superman III. Ratner doing X-men 3 is more like Donner handing off a third Superman movie to someone he trusts to, at least, do a decent to good job on the film. X2 is still the best, but, I agree that even if they do no make anymore X-men films, they have sufficiently wrapped up the story in a satisfying way as far as I am concerned. It's time for Marvel to move on to other things like improving the story and redeeming it in the sequel for a group of four superheroes who, at this time, shall remain nameless.
