Unhappy Breaking News on X-Men 3: The Last Stand (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!)

I heard about this on the radio when I was driving to work....

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILER AHEAD! READ ON AT YOUR OWN RISK!




Apparently, Patrick Stewart's character in the movie, Professor Charles Xavier...

... MIGHT DIE IN THE MOVIE!!!


I checked whether it's true, and I found this article...

"Q: What was … was one of the biggest draws for you, to this project, the fact that you did get to have a death scene?
PS: I didn't know I had a death scene when I signed on to do the movie.

Q: So they didn't consult you at all about the fate of the character?

PS: Um, you know something about the rather checked history of this film in pre-production.

Q: A little tumultuous … I heard …

PS: They had two directors and one film. And Brett came in with an absurd amount of … in fact, he didn't really have prep time. Brett was prepping every day that we were on the set. It was … It must have been exhausting. He was just trying to keep one step ahead of the camera rolling. Umm … (long pause) when I saw the first draft of the script, which, I think, is the one that came to the second director. They said, "Give us your response when you see it," and in that, indeed, Xavier dies. So we began to talk about it then. The main concern, which was very much a Marvel concern, was if this is going to be an ongoing franchise, we can't kill off the leader of the X-Men, because anyway it's breaking the line of what the comic book story has been. And, uh, then when Brett was on board, his first response to this in the first phone conversation we had, because I was filming in England, was, "We can't let Xavier die. It's just crazy. We cannot erase this man from the X-Men franchise." So then the conversation became and, of course, none of this could be talked about at the time, became, "What do we do?" And, umm … Nobody told me how this film ended. Um, I was aware there were three endings. There was an ending I'd read in one script. There was an ending that I filmed in the first days of production when we were out on Vancouver Island, which was never on the call sheet. There was no documentary evidence that this scene had ever been shot"

OK... if this really happens, it will really suck... X-Men fans will go ballastic on this...

X-Men rules

We are what we are - forever live or die
Don't tell me how to act - how to be - how to live
I am what I am from beginning to the end
