Earlier this week I was watching an add for what looked like a prequel to the Xmen. Seriously, do we really need another prequel? What is it with all these prequels that are popping up everywhere? Why not just start from the beginning? Actually for the Xmen, wouldn't the comic-books count as a prequel? Or am I misunderstanding what the movie is about? Perhaps not a prequel of same known characters, but showing how they developed from childhood or something like that? But if it is another prequel, I don't get it. I mean sure it's great to get the story of how it all started, but why not start from there instead of the middle of the story? It seems ever since Star Was did their prequels, prequels have becoming popular in Hollywood. Anybody else noticed this?
