    I know the X-Films have been criticized for not doing justice to the X-Ladies compared to the comics, so it'll be good to see them more prominent here :D.

    Now I suddenly want to go back and check to see if past movies have passed the Bechdel test...y'know, in-between all the Scott, Logan, and Jean drama :rolleyes2:.

    The longest conversation I can even remember between two women in the series was when Jean and Storm teamed to find Nightcrawler in X2.

    I guess the US government doesn't take well to Genosha :sweat:.

    In before it turns out to be Weapon X again :p.

    Although maybe they're working for Sinister :ack:?

    Or the world government.

    Eyeroll if it's Stryker again. But he did get away in Apocalypse.

    Stryker is always at the forefront when it comes to the military and Mutants in these movies. It's funny that he's gotten younger with each casting but he really shouldn't look like Josh Helman in the 90s, if he's going to look like Brian Cox 10 years later. If he does show up, I wonder if they'd make mention of his son, who should be about 20 and fully into his mutanthood at this point.

    I probably complain about this every time I talk about this movie but it still feels as though this will be the most arbitrary time jump yet. I think they could have done well with a couple of movies showing the young mutants develop into a strong team in the 80s but instead they made a mess of Apocalypse and I can't imagine them salvaging this one. Maybe they'll surprise me with another Days of Future Past or something at least along the lines of First Class but I just keep expecting a messier Apocalypse. I would have liked to at least see this series end on a high point.

    I assumed we'd see Moira gone if they had Lilandra in the movie, but given she's still unconfirmed and it doesn't seem like that's who Chastain is playing...

    I'm curious if they'll address her absence at all.

    Wouldn't be crazy if she turned out to be a doppleganger of Jean?

    2/5: Moira seemed to be the mutant expert at CIA plus Xavier restored her memories so being the government liaison to the X-Men seems like a shoe-in but in the same vein, would they bother introducing someone like Valerie Cooper or Fred Duncan?

    2/23: Another report of the Skrulls appearing.

    Well, they're still mum on who exactly Jessica Chastain is playing...

    It feels so strange that this and Captain Marvel are set in the 90s, and probably contain skrulls.

    Maybe if we're lucky they'll confirm Skrulls in Trailer #1 and/or at Wonder Con. Thor: Ragnarok came out in November and I think their first trailer came out in April. But Wonder Won is March 23-25. Hmm.

    Or at the very least officially confirm who (or what) Chastain is playing...
