    I'd keep everyone they are using currently in the movies except for Halle Berry and Ian McKellan. I really disliked Halle as Storm in the first movie because she didn't come off as the strong, leader type like Storm should. And her accent wasn't that great. And I didn't like Ian McKellan as Magneto because he looks like a weak old man. Magneto's appearance should command respect, but he looks like someone you should help across the street.

    Other than that, the casting has been perfect.

    I like the current cast except like almost all other X-Fans I feel that Storm was just casted wrong. Angela Basset should have gotten the role. Having Halle Berry made storm into nothing short of eye candy in the first flick.

    Id stick with the current cast as long as i could. if i had to recast anyone it'd be storm. I think Vivica Fox is a better choice than Halle. My original choice for Magneto was Christopher Walken i dont know if hes stll in good shape though.

    the only problem I had witht he cast was I think famke just seemed a bit to old for the role. she played it well, but I think it needed a slightly fresher face. the rest of the cast fit rather well. Ian did good for Magneto for the way they protrayed him. I want Prof X to have the funky eyebrows he was always meant to have!

    The complaints

    I didn't Like Famke as Jean because she is too tall and doesn't look like her. Rogue looked nothing like her character ,Anna Paquin is too young. Halle is a 5 foot nothing and even though can act she cannot pull off the Warrior Storm.

    I agree with yourself and Chris' point on Storm. Halle was a weak link. I don't think she added anything to the role. Certainly didn't offer any traits of a firm leader. I think she had problems with role. It just didn't sit right. Aside from that, I'm happy with the current cast.

    Hello

    Ok this is suppose to be if you were making you own X-men Movie. Not the real X-men Movie. Don't say you are happy with the cast i am just saying when you think of the X-men who do you see in your mind.

    If people are happy with the current cast then they are happy with the current cast it's their choice.

    Well if you look at my post I would have had Quicksilver, Beast, and Scarlet Witch as the main characters in the movie and Angela Basset would play Storm.

    How could you say no to the Hellfire Club they were the best villians team of all X-men History.



    Note: Notice The *WERE in my sentence once Terry Kavanagh got a hold of them they sucked.

    Not in a first installment of X-men the Movie. I would prefer them being in the third or fourth. Putting the Hellfire Club in the first movie will be totally rushing it. That's just my opinion.

    No you are right but if they ever did put them in i think Juliet Landau,Michelle Pfeifer,Jack Nicolson,and IAn Mckellne would be perfect fro the roles. I thought you meant you didn't like the CLub.

    Yeah i love the Hellfire CLub too. I like before Magneto joined once he joined things started screwing up. I liked Madelyne Pryor in the Hellfire Club i just couldn't stand Fitzroy. Then it was the end when Claremont put Blackheart as Black king what an A hole.

    LOL Anyway i think Juliet is a perfect Selene but alot peopel don't think so.

    Note: Marvel said they would never use the hellfire club in real Continuty again because it was so fared destroyed that no one can restore it.

    Storm I've merged this thread with the current X-Men casting thread since we are running on the same topic and I think we need to keep these casting threads under control!
