Top Five Reasons I'm Worried About X-Men 3

* Movie sequels almost always stink. The third movie is even more of a gamble. X-Men 2 was a masterpiece. Can X-Men 3 break the trilogy curse?
* They still haven't gotten Storm's hair right. Now it's a short black-and-white streaked mop on Halle Berry's head. How hard is it to give her a long white wig?
* They changed the director, Bryan Singer, who single-handedly re-invented the superhero movie.
* The trailer didn't say what the movie is about. That always worries me. Will the movie have the ultimate mutant war they've been promising since the first movie?
* Tennis player Serena Williams plays a mutant bisexual hooker with the power to control men. If that doesn't worry you, I don't know what will.

On the other hand, Beast looks awesome.

I'll say a couple of things. Yes, Storm still doesn't look like Storm, but it's a heckuva lot closer than before. Kelsey Grammar looks incredible although isn't he a little too old to play the athletic Beast? Whn I first heard the casting I thought he was just going to be the voice. On the other hand Willem Defoe played Green Goblin perfectly and he's pretty old so who knows.
Brett Ratner? I dunno. Rush Hour's good, but it's a far cry from X-Men. He'll probably give it a different feel.
Serena? That can only be bad.

Man that trailer is awesome. I think it most definately points to a mutant war. Angel looks pretty cool.

You guys are too harsh on Serena... she was terrific on ER. The way she looked lost and confused felt so natural.

My main issue is with that Ratner guy. He sucks. Bigtime. And it was his idea for that fucking pheromone mutant. The fact it's Serena Williams has just ruined my day because she even sucked in that McDonald's commercial.
I was glad to see Halle Berry drop the lame accent in X-Men 2 and I don't care about Angel one way or the other as long as they do some good shit with Colossus. His little clip in the 2nd movie has gotta be one of the best scenes ever in film.
