Yeah, I know: I shouldn't be too surprised. Now that Marvel's "retirement" of Kurt seems imminent, the slow-creeping idiocy of X3 post-production and Kurt's inexplicable removal from the movieverse makes all too much sense.... :rolleyes

Here's what should happen:

Idiot movie exec one: The Nightcrawler fans want our skins!

Idiot movie exec two: What? We cut out Nightcrawler and you didn't tell me? :?

Idiot movie exec three :doh! I knew I forgot something. Quick, let's go get Nightcrawler back and beg their forgivness.

:bamf Nightcrawler: Did somebody call?

Rabid Nightcrawler fans: Yay! Yay! :D

An echo of the LMAO! And I can just see the movie execs putting some script in like that too, judging by their intelligence thus far. ;)

He's been signed on along with Halle Berry. Not sure how big of a part considering that [spoiler] he maybe killed by Phoenix according to the script writer and the "script draft" that is floating out there. Three mutants are suposed to die in this movie. Will Scott be one of them? It seems like much of this "first draft" is coming to the big screen according to an interview - see Wizard #167 question #4. Sad. Very sad. :shakeno

has he? last i heard was the whole Superman fallout.... if he had a choice between Superman and this, i think Superman would be the smarter choice, though. I don't like seeing rolls recast, but from his perspective, as an actor....

Indeed; it seems that the movie executives simply were not interested in having him in X3. It's a shame, but there you go.

*sniffle*

I come back after loooong months without Nightscrawlers (I had already given up on the poor forum :o ) and am happy to see it back for about five seconds...then I find this thread......ARGH. So I'll combine a quick "hey, it's me, the strange German linguist gal, anyone remember me?" with a not-so-quick "Whiiiiine! Whimper!"

Better than nothing. Perhaps he's sending in a message from some awesome mission and doesn't have time to stick around. We hope wehopewehopewehope. (Pardon me. I'm still on a post-Narnian high.)

Or then he has failed an mission and informs the others with hes last breath. That way they could keep him out of the 4th one too. If there is 4th one.
Yeap just kidding. :lick

Considering she had something to add to the thread, and she was not around for the original discussion it's no big deal that she's resurrected the thread.

And basically, whether it is a problem or not is really the moderators call....

I've been told that there's an X3 game in the works. But rather than covering what happens in the movie, It covers between X2 and X3. The playable characters are supposedly Wolverine, Iceman, and Nightcrawler, and it explains where Kurt is during the movie.

I've got to hunt down a more solid source than heresay, though.

Ho-Hum!! The movie won't be worth it without Kurt adding some personality to it! I mean, face it, nobody but nobody has the charm the fuzzy elf has! I will have to watch out for the game! Thanks, friend!

xmenfilms.net is talking about the game. Other tidbits:

*Iceman doesn't Ice up, but does Ice Slide
*Plot by Zak Penn and Chris Claremont
*Lady Deathstrike returns
*Sentinels and Mastermold featured
*Plot stretches from Oval Office (X2) to the opening scene of X3

Hmmm…the GAME might be interesting…but the movie? I’m so disinterested that I haven’t even looked at the trailer…mainly because from what I’ve heard, they’re basically going with my least favourite X-Team….the Astonishing team (I love Joss’ work…but I HATE his team). Think about it…if the Emma Frost rumour is true (:yell ), every single member of that team will make an appearance. The X-Men team appears to have only two members appearing…and my personal favourite…the Uncanny team? Not a single damn one of them (Storm doesn’t count…she’s no longer on the team)! Is just so miserably unfair! :bawl
