I mean why wasn't he in X-men first Class?Also I just re-watched X-2 and he didn't have much screen time,and not to mention Singer said he couldn't bring Cyclops back.I mean seriously....It seems like they just care about Wolverine more than Cyke

If everything goes like it seems it will, I have a feeling that Days of Future Past will be Fox's way of rebooting the X-Men movies, setting the cast of First Class down a new timeline different from the one in the first movies. This would mean that Cyclops would be alive again and they could possibly bring him back in later movies alongside younger versions of Jean, Storm, Iceman, etc.

THere are a lot of Slim Haters so MetH wouldn't be against Cyke.

Every fan Has a cHaracter tHey dont care for and can't see wHat's tHe Hype for.

Raimi doesn't like Venom. MetH does not like Jean at all. If MetH was a director for a X-Men movie, MetH would specifically avoid using Jean, because sHowing How bad of a cHaracter sHe is would create a Huge amount of NerdRage.

Cyke has had a bad showing, and he should be recast, I don't like that actor James Marsden in that role. He looks like he smiling everytime you look at him in any movie. Singer had to hate the character to cast this guy! This guy cast as the X-Men as Cyclops has to be a sign of hate. Marsden is funny in movies.

Scott is older than Alex. surely if the movie is set in the past than Scott should be the one more likely to appear in the movies.

Not in the movies he isn't, Alex is the same age as Prof X and Magneto

I thought everyone secretly hates Scott Summers and loves Logan.

lol I think Brett Ratner hates Cyclops.

Anyways, not only did the scripts not allow Cyclops do star and be the leader, James Mardsen wasn't even a good actor, so there's that...

Hopefully Days of Future Past, brings him back (preferably with a new actor) and makes him the leader he's supposed to be.

Cyclops didn't do much in the films other than offer Wolverine somebody to annoy. Then they killed him stupidly. Unfortunately, he's not necessary, but it'd be nice if we got a decent Scott Summers back in after Days of Future Past.

Fun thing is, during Wolverine Origins, which is confirmed part of the movie-universe canon, Cyclops is the same age than a young Emma Frost (and both are waaaaaaaaay younger than Xavier when he makes his aparition), then in First Class Emma is the same age than Xavier and Magneto.

So considering that not only they don't respect character canon, to the point where they use the names to take the fans, but show zero respect for the story and even the powers of each character (like Sebastian Shaw with Mr Sinister past and Bishop powers and Emma being Silver Fox's sister who now is a mutant too... really, if the films and its characters had different names they wouldn't be related to the X-Men at all), but they also don't respect THEIR OWN movie universe official canon (add Beast having human form in X-2 to the example about Emma and Xavier age), so technically there is nothing against Cyclops being in first class considering what has happened before and that he has been shown with the same age than a character that appears in first class.

Na, I think it's a case of Singer (and later Fox) loving Wolverine to the detriment of almost every other X-Men character. I'd like Fox to make a proper X-Men movie as an ensemble movie rather than a movie with a single main character (First Class was a step in the right direction with having two main characters). However, I don't think they have faith in any other character's popularity to stand up to Wolverine. So, I guess for as long as Hugh Jackman is in these movies, they will be Wolvie based.

Clearly this casting was inspired by Greg Land's version of Cyclops haha

Bryan Singer doesn't hate Cyclops. But i don't think he either cares, or has bothered to understand the character at all.

Singer just needs to read more X-Men comics with Cyclops in them,so he can understand Cyke more,Becuase he's a awesome character.

First off, I like to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!

Second, I like to say no, he doesn't hate Cyclops, but he did make Cyclops his whipping boy through out the trilogy. The death was just an insult to injury.

Third, he made Wolverine the complete center of the entire X-Men Cinematic Universe. Which is unnecessary, for this should be centered around everyone. Not just Charles, Wolverine, and Magneto, but EVERYONE. Including minor characters. Thus X-Men: First Class was a perfect example. Bryan should either take notes from that movie, or give the movie to some other filmmaker.

Marsden always seems to play the default whipping boy.

No freaking way, haha. You (if this user is still around) can see into the future. Fantastic.

Don't look under the spoiler tag if you haven't seen the movie yet.

Having just saw the new movie, I'll admit that I didn't expect to see both Scott and Jean appear at the end in the "new" future. That was a nice little easter egg Singer decided to throw in there. To me it came off as his way of saying, "see, I fixed The Last Stand for you." lol
