    For some reason I was thinking you would be a Colossus fan. In one of the clips I saw he throws Wolverine ala 'fastball special' at a Sentinel. VERY good stuff. :)

    Here's a link to a teaser and the trailer: http://www.jurassicpunk.com/movies/x-men3.shtml

    Can't remember where I found the clip that has Wolverine fighting the Sentinel. I'll see if I can find it again.

    I'm concerned about Brian Singer not directing this one, I thought he nailed the moods in the first two movies, particularly the adolescent roles (Rogue dealing with her powers, Drake's "coming out" scene).

    I'm also a bit worried that the number of characters is getting too big, but that being said, I would like to see less emphasis on Wolverine and more on other members of the team, though that won't happen.

    I'm eager to see the new X-Men movie, though I'm still mad about Rogue NOT flying! At least Storm looks like she has a lot more to do this time around...

    I hear ya. I miss the uber-strength she had in the comics too. I can see where that part of the storyline was probably a bit messy though... stealing... Ms. Marvel's powers (is that who it was? I forget), having Mystique be her stepmom, etc.

    But who knows? Maybe it's still coming. In part of the clip they show Rogue looking a bit miffed cause Bobby's with Shadowcat. Pyro defected to the 'darkside' and joined Magneto and Co. Perhaps Rogue will too.

    Is Halle Berry still storm? I thought I heard that she was not going to do it because it didn't focus on her character.

    Yup. Halle Berry is still Storm. I still wish that Angela Bassett didn't turn down that role. Apparently, they approached Bassett first, and she said no. Source: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120903/trivia

    Angela Bassett would've been a MUCH better Storm, IMHO. Halle Berry doesn't quite exude the commanding presence Storm has in the comics. She's also too short. I was extremely annoyed at how she was tossed around like a bag of potatoes in the first X-Men movie - accompanied by THE worst line ever said in ANY movie:

    "Do you know what happens when a toad gets struck by lightning? The same thing as everything else!"

    My friend and I groaned loudly when she said that. Wasn't remotely witty or funny.
