    X3 Officially Titled
    Fox makes a Stand.
    by Stax
    January 24, 2006 - The XVerse has been advised by 20th Century Fox that X-Men 3 has now been officially titled X-Men: The Last Stand. There had been rumors of that new title for awhile.

    http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/683/683103p1.html

    "X-Men: The Last Stand, is currently being cleared for usage. The title also appeared in a review of 2006 films by USA Today, lending further support to the notion," reports The XVerse.

    In related news, The Comics Continuum reports that the novelization of X3, adapted by X-Men comics scribe Chris Claremont, will be released by Del Rey on May 16.

    The novel's official plot synopsis claims that in X3, "with the help of new recruits The Beast and Angel, (the X-Men) must face evolution itself in the form of their former teammate, Jean Grey! Possessed with the cosmic power of the Dark Phoenix, the resurrected Jean Grey has become a danger to herself, her mutant comrades, and the entire planet! To stave off this imminent threat to humanity, a potential cure is discovered and processed to treat -- and ultimately eliminate -- genetic mutations, once and for all! Now, as the battle lines are drawn, the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, must contend with both Jean Grey's world-consuming powers, as well as the malevolent Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto!"

    Is George Lucas naming every movie now?

    First the prequels, then "Snakes on a Plane" and now "The Last Stand"

    If there's an X-Men 4, I'll be pissed. Unless this "last stand" is Magneto's last stand. Then a fourth X-Men with, say, Apocalypse would be fine.

    Well... the guy that's playing Juggsy said that he signed on for 4,5, and 6. However, if the script review from Aint It Cool is accurate, it'll probably be a moot point as the fans will be in a rage. I'm actually not a Ratner hater, but that story is pure shit.

    I hope that it was all b.s., as I was totally psyched about the flick till I heard what they were gonna do.

    Read it at your own risk and pray that it is a hoax.

    They posted a link to a 'review' of the film last week, which was pretty much a regurgitation of the original script review.

    And don't get pissed at me, I had nothing to do with it.

    Old news, yes but still pertinent.

    Read it here.

    If this movie sucketh I will be so disappointed, X-2 was so much better than the first. I'd really rather see that trend continue than have a big ball of suck. The Last Stand, sounds like a power metal band or something, but whatever.

    I can't tell you how glad I am that this is the end of the trilogy with no plans to further continue the fiasco that part three has become.

    Who says? Fox has a habit of milking things, and Marvel would never let a movie series die out featuring their characters, even if it means breaking out with the movies like Wolverine, Generation X, Astonishing X-Men and any number of other titles you'd care to insert here.


    I foresee that this film will do buisness leading to the further adventures of Professor Xavier and his team of mutant heroes.
    But if I'm wrong; well then it's just going to take another Batman Returns esque film down the line to revive it.

    Well first, let's make sure we're talking about the same thing. I didn't say there wouldn't be spin offs. I was specifically referring to the X-Men trilogy along with the storylines contained therein.

    And Tom Rothman, producer of the X-Men films, says there won't be more.

    Heh, I generally don't talk out of my ass my friend. Generally. :thumb

    Am I the only one who thinks that a novelization is silly? They should do it as a graphic novel.
    Also, I think that if they do end up doing a reboot of the series eventually then they should use Ultimate X-Men. The first 6 issues would make an amazing film.

    I could be wrong, but I thought he was implying that this was merely the end of a story arc, that the three pictures are a self-contained trilogy, and any new movies will be a new arc. The guy playing Juggernaut said he signed on for four and five, as well.

    Who knows. Hollywood is always talking out both sides of their mouth.

    I think they are pretty cool sometimes, esp. if it's a comic guy writing because they put in some extra little easter eggs. Peter David on Spiderman comes to mind. But, non-comic related stuff, yes, it mostly is teh suck.

    And you know there will be a graphic novel. Marvel never would pass up another buck.
