She'll probably get five whole lines instead the original planning to give her three. Can't get over how stupid this concept is after Apocalypse bombed so hard.

Their trilogies as a whole get messy. So I'm glad they seemingly admitted that and trimmed it to a two parter. Maybe it'll be a boon on pacing and tell a tighter narrative.
That's because much like SONY, they don't properly plan a trilogy. These franchises are designed to go on, even after a part three. So yeah, just like the Fast&Furious, Resident Evil, or Underworld, the X-Men films are shooting from the hip.

I still wish The Hobbit was done as a 2-parter, and it seems WB just now realized It is a 2-parter. We could use more films like that.

Apocalypse wasn't a complete bomb. It still made money even if it didn't gross much as its predecessor and I really do hope that Psylocke gets more dialogue and screentime. You know what's stupid? Having the Dark Phoenix story reduced to a subplot in The Last Stand and I'm actually glad that it's the main story for next year's film and its follow-up. It's not really a stupid concept to adapt The Dark Phoenix Saga.

Which explains a lot of padding for the second and third films of the Hobbit trilogy and yeah, we do need more two-part films instead of just trilogies, tetralogies or others, hence making It into a two-parter than one long horror film was a good idea and I have a good feeling that they won't pull a Hobbit on that one.

Honestly though, Stephen King's It was a massive novel. WB could very well be a trilogy, but personally I'd rather them bring back The Dark Tower as a series.

Well, it's probably for the best that It's not going to be a trilogy and Sony are currently planning a TV series sequel to The Dark Tower film adaptation, which itself is a continuation of the book series, despite the mediocre box-office and critical response.

We'll see. Back on topic. I'd really have to question what FOX's plan is according to X-men prime series. Will they continue the 90's timeline? Will they merge these films with the current Deadpool/X-Force facet of the universe? Seeing how Cable is a time traveler, we could see him show up. Besides we need to focus on Jean specifically.

But rights issues are pretty crazy in some ways, I still have doubts because there's never been a supporting character related to the Fantastic Four in any of these movies.
