Did the thumbnail fool ya? No, of course it wasn't Halle Berry's Storm, but James Marsden's Cyclops that fans most want to see make an appearance in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Quite a lot of people feel that the character was short changed in Bryan Singer's previous X-Men movies, and even more so in Brett Ratner's threequel, so this could be a chance to put things right and give fans the Mutant leader from the comics they've been waiting to see brought to life on the big screen. Cyc was way out in front with 1,580 Votes (41.32%), and quite a bit behind in second place was Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler with 577 Votes (15.09%. In third place was Daniel Cudmore's Colossus with 339 Votes (8.87%). Aaron Stanford as Pyro came in last with a paltry 16 Votes (0.42%) - although I though he did a pretty good job. Here are the results in full..

[frick] YEAH !
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 12/1/2012, 7:04 PM
Cyclops by a landslide!
Durango95 - 12/1/2012, 7:07 PM
Duh.
l0rdleg0las - 12/1/2012, 7:13 PM
I would agree with Cyclops if they ever got the character right and actually used him for more than a few minutes every movie
INSTANTJUSTICE - 12/1/2012, 7:31 PM
Dazzler.
StuckInPanels - 12/1/2012, 7:31 PM
well they didn't say that Scott died in the third movie, we didn't see it happen. Unless they decide to have this movie change and alter the events of this continuity of a mess of films into something more consistent. Like it changes out where X-3 is completely removed, Scott is alive and they delve deeper into many more things like the comics
GUNSMITH - 12/1/2012, 7:37 PM
CONSISTENCY...TOO MANY LIBERTIES, CHANGING STUFF. MESSING WITH TIME, MAYBE THEY'LL FIX IT ALL.
rubbish78 - 12/1/2012, 7:43 PM
I really want to know what happened to the Sabretooths in these movies, especially Liev's Sabretooth or victor creed!!
GOTG - 12/1/2012, 7:45 PM
for me i agree with nightcrawler re appearing, but the only character in the xmen movies for me that has stepped straight out of joss whedons amazing astonishing xmen run is ellen page as kitty pryde, she looks now as if she hasnt aged a day i would love to see her come back
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 7:46 PM
I hope they say Origins was a bad dream Logan had after some bad Taco Bell(the only thing to affect his mutant healing factor in the comics-via his wiki page)
DioFoRio - 12/1/2012, 7:47 PM
I'm excited to see how this movie is going to shape up.
Mrcool210 - 12/1/2012, 7:55 PM
we need kitty pride at least, not really cyclops
ThatOneDude - 12/1/2012, 8:02 PM
Yeah let's see Cyclops done right
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 12/1/2012, 8:03 PM
Maggot :P
CoulsonLives - 12/1/2012, 8:03 PM
Anyone else wonder what happened to Toad, Nightcrawler after their first appearances?
And where was Beast during all of this?

Bryan Singer created X-Men and X2 before this recent time of fantastic revolutionary comic book films.

People act like Singer won't change at all. He already confirmed no leather suits, so stop judging him for what he did BEFORE movies like Iron Man or Avengers.

Cyclops AND Nightcrawler need to come back. Especially Nightcrawler
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 12/1/2012, 8:14 PM
Yo Levitikuz, you are a celebrity. Dan Slott reported you in hall of shame after ur comment on his fat ass ;) True story, check it
superherofan21 - 12/1/2012, 8:15 PM
I think Nightcrawler is needed. Imagine, he goes back in time and sees Mystique and Azazel. And he realizes he's their son. It's kinda necessary for the plot, I think. It'd be pretty interesting, too. Maybe Mystique is the only one who knows she's pregnant, and she uses her shape-changing abilities to hid it? She probably wouldn't want anyone to know she got with Azazel, especially if she's got the hots for Magneto.
superherofan21 - 12/1/2012, 8:16 PM

i would LOVE a giant size x-men sort of deal going on (colossus, storm, nightcrawler, "old" banshee, wolverine, and cyclops) in later movies with thunderbird and sunfire being added in later. that would be awesome!

BANEofExistence - 12/1/2012, 8:19 PM
Marsden as Cyclops, Cudmore as acolossus and Foster as Angel!!! All three were well cast and need there time to shine! Screw Banshee and Havok, lets form the original xmen with Colossus and Logan thrown into the mix! As for the brotherhood, I'd like to see Azazel and Mystiques relationship (perfect opportunity to throw Nightcrawler in the future timeline)
BANEofExistence - 12/1/2012, 8:25 PM
I'd like to see (maybe not this film but eventually, hopefully the sequel to this one?) where the xmen are fully formed and maybe the events in days of future past alter the future of the films so there we go no more co tinuitu issues! Haha but come on,we need the xmen to be fully formed! We ALMOST got the team at the end of the third film, but we need professor X, Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Kitty, Iceman, nightcrawler, beast and angel! Hell throw in gambit to! As for the brotherhood, Magneto, Mystique, Durand as Blob (admit it he was awesome), Pyro, Avalanche, and maybe even Juggernaut?
Tainted87 - 12/1/2012, 8:26 PM
The funny thing is - Scott isn't even in Days of Future Past... AT ALL.
superotherside - 12/1/2012, 8:29 PM
I never want to see that Cyclops again. Sorry.
novaprime - 12/1/2012, 8:48 PM
CYCLOPS BUT NO JAMES MARSDEN RECAST HIM, WITH A BRADLY COOPER, RYAN GOSLING!
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 9:11 PM
@SNAILFILES BEAST WAS IN X2 AS DR. HANK McCOY IN THE BAR/RESTAURANT SCENE. THERES A TV IN THE BACKGROUND WITH POLITICIANS TALKING ABOUT MUTANT RIGHTS OR WHATEVER. ONE OF THE POLITICIANS IS DR. HANK McCOY IN HUMAN FORM. THATS WHY I CONSIDER X-MFC A REBOOT NOT A SEQUEL. SO NO MATTER WHAT YOU GUYS THINK SYNGER IS SCREWING THIS FRANCHISE UP EVEN MORE CAUSE I ALSO REMEMBER BEFORE FIRST CLASS CAME OUT THEY SAID IT WAS SEPARATE AND FROM SYNGERS X-MEN BUT NOW THAT SYNGER HAS REPLACED VAUGHN HE JUST COULDN'T HELP HIMSELF. SO IF DOFP IS GOOD THE CONTINUALLY IS EVEN MORE [FRICK]ED UP THAN BEFORE.
Jolt17 - 12/1/2012, 9:21 PM
The result was rather predictable, really, but with the crowding cast - foremost Stewart/McKellen/Jackman's return - I dare to bet we'll just get another half-assed Cyclops if he does return in this one. So yeah, I'd rather not see him again. Not this time, at least.
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 9:22 PM
@RUBBISH78 WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS HOW AND DO THEY EVER PLAN ON EXPLAINING TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SABRETOOTH FROM X1/X2 & X-MO:W. CAUSE CREED WAS THE BEAST PART OF ORIGINS AND SINCE IT A PREQUEL... I GUESS DID HE BECOME TALL DUMB AND STUPID AND NOT RECOGNIZE HIS OWN "BROTHER" COMPARED TO BEING VICIOUS ANF CRUEL
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 9:23 PM
*BEST
Billium3 - 12/1/2012, 9:31 PM
@DaCottDamnBatman

Perhaps the Hank McCoy in X2 was using an image inducer before he went public as a blue furball?
mgeoff88 - 12/1/2012, 9:35 PM
I want Cylcops to come back with James Marsden in the role.

The only characters I want to be recast are: Rogue, Gambit, Storm, and Angel.
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 9:45 PM
@BILLIUM3 BULLSHIT IT WAS HANK McCOY BEFORE HE BECAME THE FURBALL. IN FIRST CLASS BEAST LEARNED TO EXCEPT HIMSELF AS HE WAS WHICH WAS JUST BAD FEET PROBLEMS AT FIRST SO THETE WOULDN'T BE A NEED FOR IMAGE INDUCER IN X2. I HATE WHEN FAN TRY TO COME UP WITH EXCUSE FOR MOVIE PLOTS OR SCREWED UP CONTINUALITY LIKE THEY HAD A HAND IN RIGHTING THE SCRIPT. OF OT DOESNT MAKE SCENCE THE SHIT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SCENCE
Minstrik - 12/1/2012, 10:01 PM
lmao at the last entry above. Yellin' and mispellin'.

Anyhoo...I agree that continuity should be an issue with these First Class movies. That being said...it's kinda too late. We all know who the first X-Men were and what they changed from the comics. I won't say anything bad about them because it's just good to see them get some attention at all - characters recreated to serve the purpose of the movie versions or not. My personal fave has always been Colossus, so I'd like to see more of him. More than that...I just want to see some respect for the stories they're supposedly basing the movies on.

As you were.
Billium3 - 12/1/2012, 10:04 PM
@DaCottDamnBatman
Maybe something happens in DoFP that causes Hank to want to hide his mutant heritage? Like, oh, I dunno, mutants being thrown into concentration camps by giant mutant hunting robots?!?
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 10:07 PM
@MINSTRIK I YELL ALL THE TIME BUT THE MISPELLING IS MAINLY BECAUSE I DO THIS ON MY PHONE... BUTTONS ARE SMALL
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 10:18 PM
@BILLIUM3 THATS NOT IN BEAST CHARACTER PLUS YOUR TRYING TO FILL IN PLOT HOLES FOR A MOVIE THAT HASN'T EVEN BEEN MADE YET. REMEMBER FC WAS INTENDED TO BE SEPARATE FROM SYNGERS XM. SYNGER IS ONLY CONNECTING THEM CAUSE HE TOOK OVER AS DIRECTOR FROM VAUGHN. BUT HEY I YOU SEE IT HOW EVER YOU WANT
DaCottDamnBatman - 12/1/2012, 10:19 PM
*I GUESS
rottencotten - 12/1/2012, 10:34 PM
So last post I stated my reasoning as to why I thought Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler should come back...For this post I will mention the person I do not want to see back and really want recast...wait for it...Halle Berry as Storm...God was it painful to watch her play Ororo...She is such a horrible actress...My dream actress for the role of Storm is Carmen Ejogo...We need an actress with more presence and fierceness...We need a Storm who is more emotionally distraught and claustrophobic...I have no idea what a lot of fanboys and the Hollywood Academy sees in Berry...she's washed-up...
