5 Reason Why X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Can Save The X-MEN Franchise
Lately we've all been pretty puzzled on how Fox's new X-Men film could either resurrect or destroy the entire X-Men franchise. Read on to see why it could actually do better than we think.
In 2011 Fox Studios both surprised and shocked X-Men Fans everywhere with their latest X-Men film titled "X-Men: First Class". After it's release a majority of fans highly praised the newest cast of the X-Men franchise and were also left wanting more from each of their performances. However other fans were highly disappointed with the fact that the so called "reboot" failed to correct the jumbled history of other X-Men Films. Wanting to understand both sides of my fellow X-Men fans I decided to watch each X-Men film and notice the disadvantages that corrupted the franchise's history. After taking note of each films disadvantages I concluded 5 ways in which "X-Men: Days of Future Past" could possibly save the entire X-Men Franchise.
The first time that we ever got a glimpse of the sentinels within any X-Men film was within 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand" for some reason Professor Charles Xavier detailed the danger room to have these giant bots fighting the X-Men. Perhaps Kittie Pryde had already warned the Professor of this horrific war that would soon take place in the near future and he wanted to see just how well the X-Men could handle fighting them. Due to the fact that the brotherhood of evil mutants prevailed in a plot to kill Senator Kelly the mutant registration act was created as a response to the evil deed. X-Men: The Last Stand teased us with mutants being pushed to the edge to take the cure to help eliminate their mutation. But towards the very end of the film we could see that the mutation cure failed and each mutant would return to their original mutation. Due to the fact that senator Kelly actually died in 2000's "X-Men" many people may soon come to find out that (with Mystique being rid of her mutation she can no longer portray Senator Kelly) Senator Kelly is actually dead and indeed it was mutant kinds fault. With this being said the sentinels will come to be created to destroy all of mutant kind. Perhaps the Mutant cure was a warning for what soon has yet to come.
#2.) Kittie Pryde's Warning!
After seeing Kittie Pryde in action for the first time in "X-Men Last Stand" we can already see that Kittie has been in the X-Mansion for sometime. All readers of "Days of Future Past" will know that Kittie Pryde plays a key role within the story. Perhaps the new X-Men film will not focus on the 80's but will focus on the later years after Kittie has entered the X-Mansion. By setting the film in both the past present and future we can catch up on what happens after X-Men: The Last Stand. By having Storm, Angel, Wolverine, Colossus, Beast, Iceman and Nightcrawler working with Kittie after the events of the Phoenix we can see how the future Kittie Pryde teleports back into the mind of herself in the present to warn the X-Men of the horrific future they will all come to live in.
#3.) Mystique leading The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
In X-Men The Last Stand Mystique is cured from her mutation (that will later kick back in) and is sadly left behind by Magneto claiming he has no use for her anymore. As revenge to show herself more worthy than ever she decides to form her own group of mutants and take Magneto's place to strike an assassination against either the new senator or president at an election as a threat to human kind. By reintroducing and introducing new characters such as "Blob" (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) , "Pyro" (X2 and X-Men The Last Stand), "Toad" (X-Men), "Avalanche" (comic), and also Sabertooth (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
#4.) What about the X-Men from First Class?
This may sound quite weird and very out of place but perhaps the Mutant cure caused it's patients to somewhat grow younger as an effect to it's cure. With a younger cast you can still use the characters from X-Men: First Class and have about 1/4 of them reprise their roles. You might be still wondering about Professor X? Remember that scene at the end of the credits of X-Men The Last Stand? Professor X was able to reach another body that was perhaps a patient who looked almost the same as he? Perhaps that actual body was a body that looked similar to his of X-Men First Class but of course bald!
#5.) Cyclops Returns!!!
If you remember seeing X-Men The Last Stand you'll "think" that possibly Cyclops died when in all actuality he regained his powers once Jean lost control and became the Phoenix during their encounter. This wold cause Cyclops to perhaps blast Jean at the last minute and manage to escape and become stranded without the X-Men being able to contact him. Have Cyclops return in the sequel for all the fans and truly kick some (butt).
