Apparently EVERYBODY is in this movie, up to and including Peter Dinklage, inexplicably. He's built an army of robots that look exactly like vacuum cleaners to - you guessed it - kill all Mutants. Therefore, somehow, Wolverine is going back to the past to meet up with the cast of "X-Men First Class", and do time travel stuff that will save the world. You know, because the X-Men movies didn't already suffer from huge ungainly cast problems, might as well compound the error by doubling the cast with past and future versions. I was really excited to see Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen back at the end of "The Wolverine" - they're really the heart of this X-Men franchise, not Hugh Jackman as Fox seems desperate to prove - yet this trailer has completely squashed my expectations.
What's becoming increasingly obvious to me is how cheap the X-Men franchise looks. Back in the early 2000s, these really were the best superhero movies you could hope for. Now of course in our much greater modern world of "The Dark Knight" trilogy and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have much slicker professional superhero films. Yet here we are again with this cheesy X-Men film, which feels not only like a throwback to the 1970s but also the early 2000s. It looks like a mess. And you know what happens when an X-Men movie is a mess. Need I remind you of "X-Men Origins Wolverine" (which might somehow become canon again after this stupid time travel bullshit is over)?
Hey, at least Ellen Page is coming back for this.
