Some X-Men movie info I found on Wikipedia:

[edit] X-Men Origins: Magneto
In December 2004, 20th Century Fox hired screenwriter Sheldon Turner to draft a spin-off X-Men film, and he chose to write Magneto, pitching it as "The Pianist meets X-Men."[28] In April 2007, David S. Goyer was hired to direct.[29] Turner said the script was set from 1939 to 1955,[30] and it follows Magneto trying to survive in Auschwitz. He meets Xavier, a soldier, during the liberation of the camp. He hunts down the Nazi war criminals who tortured him, and this lust for vengeance turns him and Xavier into enemies.[29]

The film was planned to shoot in Australia for a 2009 release,[31][32] but it was delayed by the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike.[33] In April 2008, concept art, including one of a younger Beast, was being designed.[34] In June 2008, the X-Men Origins prefix also applied to Wolverine was confirmed, and the project was seeking approval to film in Washington, D.C.[35] The following month, Goyer revealed he hoped to turn his attention to Magneto in 2009, but he had another project lined up first.[36]

In May 2006, Ian McKellen said he would reprise the role using the computer-generated facelift applied to him in the prologue of X-Men: The Last Stand.[37] Lauren Shuler Donner stated that the film would need McKellen to anchor the story, which would take place in flashbacks.[18] With Goyer's hiring in 2007, it was said actors in their twenties would play the characters.[29] McKellen reiterated his hope to bookend the film in July 2008.[38]

[edit] X-Men: First Class
In 2007, Zak Penn revealed he was attached to direct a spin-off. He explained, "The original idea was to have me do a young X-Men spin-off, a spin-off of the young X-Men characters. But someone came up with a pretty interesting idea [...] it was this guy who worked with me named Mike Chamoy, he worked a lot with me on X3. He came up with how to do a young X-Men movie which is not what you'd expect."[39] Penn later compared the idea to X-Men: First Class.[40] In May 2008, Josh Schwartz joined the project.[41] In July, Fox filed the title X-Men: First Class with Production Weekly.[42]

My one issue with X 3 (When you type it as X3 it comes out as X3) was the whole "Nobody but Wolverine of all people noticing that Scott was missing" thing. Also, they kinda painted themselves into a corner in terms of having Xavier come back at the very end in the body of a guy who looked nothing like him.

Other than that, I enjoyed the action in that movie; it was very...comic-booky, overall, because of that, and just had those slugfests that I'd missed from the previous (Admittedly excellent) movies. Sometimes ya just need the "everything hits the fan" chapter.

The problem, then, for me was "No X4," i.e. no "More plot than action" movie to follow up on the very action-heavy film.

Overall, Spider-Man 3 was a much much more satisfying trilogy conclusion, I felt, since it wrapped up the important stuff introduced in 1, like the Uncle Ben plotline and the Harry and his dad. Only thing that bugged me there was Venom revealing his human face every five minutes because the actor was a recognizable person. I mean c'mon, X-Men had a bunch of well-known actors and they never mugged like that! Mystique wasn't turning into Rebecca Romjin Stamos all the time, for example. (By the way, she graduated from our high school!)

Awesome. :3 Yeah, I never noticed it myself before till 1 time... But I thought "Nah, Nate will notice and find a way around it... Or at least speak with Acey and get it changed." Seems I was wrong on both counts. O_o::;:

Anyways, yeah, I have to agree with that cliffhanger X3. Though I have no say on the Spidey flicks as I have yet to see 2 and 3... :laughing:

If this is Bulma... then... RIGHT ON! But why isn't her hair blue?

Guess since everybody else looks so different from their manga / anime counterparts, why stop with Bulma. Notice the one streak of green / blue hair running down her face though (to pay homage?). She does have that attitude expression that Bulma has though.

Bulma struck me more as a bi-... "Not so nice lady." :smile::;: Not as a "lady of the night." ;x:
