X-Men: Second & Third Class.

My idea on where they could go after 'First Class' and possibly for a trilogy...

Both McAvoy and Fassbender were great in the lead roles a Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr I for one would love to see them reprise their roles for a sequel. But where could they go with this new 'X-Men' franchise? I rather like the idea of this being a reboot and avoiding any connections with the 2000 film X-Men and so onwards, especially X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

X-MEN: SECOND CLASS?

Professor Xavier's X-MEN vs Magneto's BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS.

Introduce Senator Robert Kelly as a somewhat antagonist to both Charles and Erik. Xavier's idea to protect and get Kelly to understand that not all mutants are evil and Magneto's that he should be destroyed sway Xavier's and Erik's friendship further and further apart. Erik recruits a few mutants for his 'Brotherhood' and Charles does the same for his 'X-Men'. I feel this would be the perfect time to introduce some of the actual original X-Men, i.e Scott Summers (Cyclops), Jean Grey, Warren Worthington (Angel) and Bobby Drake (Iceman). I know we've seen them all on-screen before but I believe having the actual FIRST CLASS from the comics is rather essential having them in the movies, especially when the movies are titled 'X-Men: First Class'.

Anyway, Magneto would also recruit a few followers. Now I when I say a few, I mean A FEW. A big problem with some of the past X-Men movies is the overcrowding of mutants with a lot of them having barely any connection to the plot or story of the movie. Wouldn't it better for them to be done justice in possible later sequels then injustice just putting them in there for 5 seconds just because?

My idea for the plot is pretty straight forward. The Government upon discovering want all the mutants to register themselves and they're powers as they seemed to dangerous to the humans. This would be let by Senator Robert Kelly who would serve as the main villain in this movie. This causes a lot of mutants to choose sides and questions themselves. Magneto and his Brotherhood seek to kill Senator Kelly but the X-Men intervene resulting in many epic fights between each sides.

For Magneto's new recruits I chose Avalanche (Dominikos Petrakis), Pyro (St. John Allerdyce) and Toad (Mortimer Toynbee). Although both Pyro and Toad have appeared on screen before, I think they could both be improved on. While Avalanche hasn't been seen in any of the past movies and would be a very nice addition to the fold.

By the end of the movie Xavier and Erik are leading completely different lives to each other. But soon they would once again unite for a greater cause. Movie ends with a little cameo of Nathaniel Essex A.K.A Mister Sinister!


X-MEN: THIRD CLASS?

This movie would have Mister Sinister as the main villain. Sinister also has ties with Sebastian Shaw and The Hellfire Club which would link it back to the first movie. Anyway, various mutants start disappearing and Charles figures out it's the man known as Nathaniel Essex or as he prefers, Mister Sinister. Charles lead an attack on Sinister with his X-Men but is easily defeated. Not only do the X-Men lose their battle with Sinister, they also lose Angel to him. Knowing that Sinister is probably doing experiments on Angel, Charles comes to the conclusion that they must perform a rescue mission. But they'll need help from an old friend.

Charles approaches Erik (Magneto) asking him to help him save his fellow mutants. At first Erik refuses, but after Charles explains that they're being experimented on and tortured like he was in the concentration camp when he was a boy he agrees. The X-Men and The Brotherhood unite to take down Sinister and stop his experiments. However, when they arrive at Sinister's laboratory / lair. They meet a new evil Warren (Angel) known now only as Archangel, servant of Mister Sinister.

An epic fight ensues between the X-Men and Archangel as they try to stop him but not kill him as they believe he can still be saved. Magneto and his Brotherhood confront Sinister. They prove no match for Sinister and Magneto's Brotherhood are restrained. Just as Sinister is about to destroy Magneto the X-Men burst in and save him taking out Mister Sinister by surprise.

They all escaped as soon as possibly, just in time before the place blows up (something to do with the damaged chemicals mixing in Sinister's lab after the fight). But what about Nathaniel Essex? Did he make it out?

CASTING EDITIONS


Cyclops
Photobucket


Aaron Johnson: Not too hard to imagine him in the role, he was rumoured for it a while back when people assumed Cyclops would be in the First Class. I'm sure he'd do great in the role, Johnson and Vaughn (First Class Director) both collaborated on Kick-Ass.


Jean Grey
Photobucket


Willa Holland: She not very well known which I think is a good thing. She's probably most recognisable from the old T.V Series The O.C on which she starred as Marissa's younger sister. Anyway, she's little older now and is a better actress as well.


Angel
Photobucket


Alex Pettyfer: This guy is a pretty big star at the moment, and is constantly being fan-casted in this role, it's easy to see why but. He looks spot on for it and has the right attitude for the character but would also give us a fresh take from what he saw in X-Men: The Last Stand.


Iceman
Photobucket


Freddie Highmore: I haven't seen Highmore in many movies of late but at a young age he really showcased his talent in acting. Still only a teenager, Highmore is the ideal choice for Bobby Drake in more ways than one. He's got the look, the age and I would love to see how he would go playing the smart-ass Iceman, wouldn't it be cool? :P


Senator Robert Kelly
Photobucket


Gary Sinise: I decided to go for a bit of a younger choice for Kelly because this is back when the X-Men were just starting out, not only that but I believe I have the ideal candidate for the role. Gary Sinise, he just looks evil to me. He's a great actor and I haven't seen much of him on the big-screen but he definitely deserves to be there.


Pyro
Photobucket


Jamie Campbell Bower: Not sure why I chose him, but he just looks like a bad-ass to me. He seems to have similar traits to Pyro, judging from his looks anyway...


Avalanche
Photobucket
Peter Facinelli: Yep. Facinelli is another actor out of the popular Twilight series just like Edi Gathegi. But seriously, Facinelli is really good actor and I believe he has the look and acting chops to pull off Avalanche.


Toad
Photobucket


Andy Serkis: I really shouldn't have to explain this one... Serkis is great a playing rather bizarre characters i.e Gollum, and could do a similar thing with Toad. I found Ray Parks portrayal in X-Men really weak. Serkis is really the ideal guy for the role.


Mister Sinister
Photobucket

Daniel Craig: Daniel Craig, really? I know, the idea of Mr. Bond as Mister Sinister is hard to imagine at first but It quickly grew on me, I'm sure he'd do the role justice. He's also collaborated with Vaughn as well on Layer Cake, the movie that got Craig the 007 role. So really, Craig owes it to him. I would however also be happy with (along with everybody else) Jason Isaacs in the role.


Well that's my take :) let me know what you think down below, constructive criticism is welcome.

I like the idea, simple and yes closer to source material.
AIGALAN - 6/6/2011, 11:24 PM
I would enjoy seeing this if it were to occur. I agree with most of the actors you chose just a few seem off to me.
KilledHal9000 - 6/6/2011, 11:46 PM
Nice idea, and your on the right track, but I don't think that they are going to forget about the other movies. Think about the next two movies after X-Men: First Class, but if they still include all other X-Men movies...with some MINOR tweaks like in First Class, not MAJOR ones(i.e. recasting Angel, Cyclops. Jean Grey, Toad) But I do like the idea of using Mr. Sinister. Daniel Craig would actually be PERFECT.
KilledHal9000 - 6/6/2011, 11:47 PM
...by the way Andy Serkis as Toad would be sooooooooooooooooo cool.
CapFanLex005 - 6/7/2011, 12:53 AM
i dig it top marks
Osiris - 6/7/2011, 1:19 AM
I like the concept except for Sinister being the catalyst that creates Archangel, I wouldn't mind if he removed his wings instead of the Hand but Apocalypse needs to turn him into Archangel.
Hellsing - 6/7/2011, 3:13 AM
sorry but you mentioned the fact that too many mutants is one of the major problems with X-Men by adding four to three that are already on the team your not solving that problem. As much as I like the idea of seeing the original four I'd rather see the characters that are already there get fleshed out. Plus Xaviers at the begining of his journey to becoming Prof X, how ever I do believe that they should add 2 mutants to the team one of them at least.

More focus on the team and xavier and less Magneto's crew who shouldn't IMO appear in the 2nd movie, save them for the third. Magneto can have a cameo or apperance of sorts in the news or him sending some message. His stories over, and he should meet Xavier when he's full on Prof X.

Don't get me wrong I like your ideas alot and especially your casting it would be great seeing Jean or Cyke in a sequel maybe even both. Having Havok and Cyke on the same team would definitely be interesting. And I'd rather see sentinels, Humans create sentinels which malfunction start killing humans too, x-men come to the rescue and peoples opinions about mutants start changing for the better. Obviously its a far fetched idea of seeing the sentinels in the 70's or late 60's when ever the movie takes place but one can always hope.

ComicbookmovieF4Lfe Thanks man, glad you do.

AIGALAN Good! Which actors seem off to you?

KilledHal9000 Thanks man, I thought it would be harder to convince people that Daniel Craig is a great choice for Sinister. Glad you see it!

And yeah, I see what you mean... By the way glad you like Serkis as Toad :P

CapFanLex005 Cheers man, :)

Osiris I know what you mean but I just think Apocalypse is such a big character it would be hard to include him in the film and do him justice. Glad you like the idea but.

Hellsing Indeed I did, and see exactly where your coming from. I kinda left out what happened to the mutants in First Class because I honestly have no idea how to fit them in and what to do with them. I just think it's so important to establish the Original X-Men in this 'First Class' series. Especially Scott and Jean!

I disagree, I think it's important to keep building the tension between Charles and Erik in a second movie then to leave Magneto out of the movie altogether because Charles and Erik were established as the TWO main leads in First Class. They movie was as much about Xavier as it was Magneto, even more Magneto. It just wouldn't feel like an X-Men movie if Magneto wasn't in it IMO.

I'm glad you like my ideas and I respect your opinion, I really do. But to tell the truth, yes Sentinels does seem a little to far fetched to me :P

But maybe, you never know...

Really good castings :D Willa Holland would be a good Jean! :D and I love Freddie as Iceman. (: and Alex as Angel is just perfect.

Although when you introduce Sinister .. the Marauders HAVE to appear! :)
MrMurdock - 6/7/2011, 5:15 AM
CherryBomb Aha, thank you :)

I'm sure the Marauders could fit in there somewhere but they would have to have a very, very minor role IMO. Perhaps best saved for their own Spin-Off?
RoadDogXXIV - 6/7/2011, 5:18 AM
You know, I wish they'd go on with an X-Men 4. Obviously, with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine making a cameo in X-Men: First Class, that means the film is in the same continuity as the previous X-Men films.

Nevertheless, I'd love to give you my opinions on the cast:

- Sure, I guess Aaron would work if they were gonna go with him. But I'd say we give Tim Pocock another shot.
- Ooh, I'm into Willa Holland for some sick reason. Bah, she's gonna be 20 this year. Also, she's the right height for Jean Grey.
- I've also got Alex as Angel, by the way.



- Damn, gotta love Freddie Highmore. He was the shiznit in The Spiderwick Chronicles, definitely shades of Bobby as the older brother.
- Gary Sinise is a very good actor, but I really want to see him as Norman Osborn. Either him or Greg Kinnear. Nevertheless, he'd be good as Senator Kelly.
- Nice Pyro. Not familiar with the actor, but hey.
- Good call with Peter Facinelli.
- Andy Serkis is cool as Toad.
- Not bad with Daniel Craig playing Mister Sinister. He does have the voice.

I really hope that Matthew Vaughn sees this article and incorporate the character's into the sequel's script.

Anyway, good job!!

[frick] Senator Robert Kelly
superbatspiderman - 6/7/2011, 9:53 AM
Cool cast man I like the idea. I think that they should portray Juggernaut correctly in the First Class sequel because he is a good villain and n ot a lacky.
MovieGuy2178 - 6/7/2011, 11:31 AM
I would like it if Xavier recuits just Cyclops & Jean Grey instead of Angel and Iceman.
TheUnknown - 6/7/2011, 11:41 AM
I think the franchise needs a little sentinel exposure.
Slayer1 - 6/7/2011, 1:53 PM
Ok so when do we get to see the real badasses !? like Cable , bishop , apocalypse , and strife !?!
Boyle360 - 6/7/2011, 2:06 PM
I love the idea of First Class being a reboot, just set in the 60s. I hope they continue the series as a reboot.
JayTopStix - 6/7/2011, 2:07 PM
I really like your idea. #3 is way better than your pitch for #2 but they seem to work. I disagree with the cast though, I dont see many of these in ther respective roles
Shadow11 - 6/7/2011, 2:12 PM
For both Second & Third Class, we need Wolverine in there as well we need Storm, Nightcrawler if possible, and also Rogue, Gambit, and Jubilee and Colossus and Kitty Pryde but all of them you can include in Third Class
Treebeard - 6/7/2011, 4:39 PM
love this cast! very inspired and realistic! i'm glad to see someone cast Craig instead of the "herd" choice of Isaacs as sinister! very very good cast bro!
freakybatman - 6/7/2011, 5:15 PM
This is a great cast, fantastic job.
superbatspiderman - 6/7/2011, 7:45 PM
I want to see Apocalypse in a movie because he is my fav X Men villain other than MAgneto of course.
comiccow6 - 7/16/2011, 8:21 AM
Why putting angel and iceman in an x-men 2nd class. Bobby seemingly doesn't know about the underground part of the mansion in x-men. angel wasn't even an x-man until X-3!
CaptMarvelfan - 10/4/2011, 3:28 AM
I would refrain from introducing characters like Iceman, Jubilee, Rouge, Pyro, Kitty, Colossus, and Angle. I would follow a time line through the 70's but also encounter The Brood Discovered by Apollo 17 who realize the Humans are a threat and that the government had possession of a Brood Space Craft in Area 51 but the crash is Roswell was related to a war between the Shi'ar and Brood. This would force the Brotherhood and X-Men to work together. Here I would introduce Mutants like Mrs. Marvel, Changeling, Vulcan, Petra and Thunderbird along with Banshee, Beast, and Havock. I would have Emma having 2 daughters (Kayla and Emma), Azazel and Mystique have a son (Nightcrawler), and Eric and Magda have a daughter and son (Scarlett Witch and Quick Silver). I would show Emma dying after the second daughter is born. William Stryker Jr is running the organization taking care of the Alien and Mutant affairs leading him into X-Men .
