Wow, this actually looks pretty good. As much as I love X-men, I've had trouble approaching the books for several years now, but this might draw me back in. Glad they have some great talent working on this book.
Are there any actual fans out there that are excited, or even the least bit hopeful about this film? After years of rumors about actual sequels, to an actual good idea of the original guys training the next generation, a hard reboot just feels like a big "fuck you, we're just here for the money" to all the fans.
Even if they could have just gotten Aykroyd and Hudson on board, training the new team, that would have been better. I don't even care if it's an all female team, though I think with all the great actresses and comediennes out there, the choices here are super questionable.
I don't think I'm alone in my thinking, here. There seems to be plenty of evidence this is going to bomb horribly, yet Feig keeps pressing on, indignantly. It almost feels like he's intentionally trolling the hardcore fans of the series.
