“ If they can reboot with Jackman and Patrick Stewart reprising their roles. Why reboot: The first 2 were good but part 3 and the prequels keep digging a hole for the series deeper and deeper. I mean Xavier crippled in First Class when he was walking when he was older in X3?
It's now just a decent series with flaws. ” - jwoehr
