X3 will end with a title…

from darkhorizons.com:

He confirmed “X3” will now have a ‘The Last Stand’ subtitle (like ‘X-Men United’ was for X2), and despite Vinnie Jones’s comments about further films – “It [X3] is the conclusion of this trilogy. These three movies work as a trilogy. These characters in this relationship, it’s the culminaton of that saga… That doesn’t mean never, I would ever say never again but I will say that this brings that saga to an end… It goes all the way back to the first one and rounds off and completes that three part story”. He confirmed the “Wolverine” and “Magneto” projects are still in development.

Interesting…why does 20th Century Fox always seem to mess things up, if its a hot series why would you end the “trilogy” on that. They did it to the Alien series with Alien 3, (even though they went ahead and did Alien: Ressurection, but that was kind of the same concept, taking the story into a new trilogy that never came through, the forth film didn’t catch on and Alien vs Predator was ok). I don’t like the subtitle as I still don’t like that stupid X-men United subtitle for X2, I think its stupid and the people at 20th Century Fox should quit…ok, maybe not quit, but like get yelled at or something…

    Yeah, I don’t get it either…they should continue making films if they’re turning out well and think they can continue doing good movies.

    Different industry, but remember when they released Mortal Kombat 3 and decided to make some game with only Sub Zero? This is starting to sound like the same thing…

    They had Sub Zero in MK3. He was without a mask, and later you find out that the two subzero’s are actually brothers, the masked one is the evil one and the unmasked one that is now running his own training place in Outworld (the one in MK3) is the real one. So all this time, in MK and MKII you are playing with the fake SubZero…dammit if I didn’t feel violated after that!

    Then they decided to bring out another MK3, this time calling it the Ultimate MK3, or MK3: Ultimate or some shit like that. They didn’t like how no one was playing MK3 so they had to fix it. And they did a pretty good job of it too. This time they had Scorpion and the masked Sub Zero. But I prefer the unmasked one.

    Yeah, they were all great. When I bought MK: Deadly Alliances two summers ago, I got really into the story and went on line to find out how exactly all the characters interact. I never got done with it it was very meticulusly (holy shit I can’t spell today) written, taking in everything from the game and the comic books that followed the storylines from the game.

    yeah, I thought so too, some people just don’t have any time. Just when you think you waste time, just rest assure that there is someone somewhere that is wasting even more time on something…it makes me feel better at night…
