The X-books don't have a long history of crossovers with F4. It could work, but wouldn't be nearly as natural a fit as seeing a Spider-Man/F4 team-up film. Same thing with Spider-Man helping the Avengers on a mission. It would work well.

Based simply on the rumored end credit scene planned for DoFP, the new cast will take over after, which would be Fassbender so I am not mad about that at all.

McKellan also confirmed that he is only on about first quarter of the film to set-up why Wolvie has to travel back in time and the whole film is pretty much set back then.

As for Jackman, he is in good shape so I can see him doing this for another decade and then eventually just casting someone new.

Hugh Jackman Says He May Not Do The Next Wolverine Movie
"I don’t know whether or not I will do this next movie," the actor said. "I am really proud of this movie and I am excited to develop something with [The Wolverine director] Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That’s exciting, to see what we come up with but I have a very high expectation of what it would need to be [for me to star in it] and if it doesn’t reach those, I won’t be doing it."

The film is still in the very early stages of development, according to the actor, so it's unclear how quickly Fox wants to move on this project. "No there is not [a script in place]," Jackman said, "but Jim Mangold and I were literally on the phone last night talking about ideas but there is no script and no writer yet so it’s a way off."

Jackman is 45, and with X-Men: Apocalypse, Jeff Wadlow's X-Force, and a possible Mangold-helmed third Wolverine-focused film in development, he could be looking at 5+ additional years of playing the immortal character. It doesn't sound as though the actor is entirely on-board with that notion. So the question becomes: Will Fox recast Wolverine? And if they do, will that character remain - essentially - the centerpiece of the X-Men cinematic universe?

Welcome to contract negotiations. This is just his way to working in a little more money and control when they sign him.

He said the same thing while doing Wolverine too and then did DoFP. And while doing DoFP he kept saying that it rejuvenated his faith on the franchise and enjoying it once again, and a few days before that article released he was just talking about speaking to Mangold on the phone about a Wolverine sequel.

Only way I see him leaving is they kill him off or secretly recast him for the ending of DoFP and the new version takes over the role.

I love him in the role, but wouldn't mind seeing someone new take a shot at it.

I could see him starring in one more Wolverine film and one more X-Men film before packing it up. Would love to see him star in an Old Man Logan type adaptation 10-15 years down the line.

The Peter / Aunt May exchanges in that are wonderful. I think Garfield nails Spiderman almost as well as Downey Jr. does Ironman.

Yup.  He's way better than Toby Maguire.  And I'm kinda digging the movie version of Electro.  Not sure about Rhino, but we only got a couple of glimpses at him.

I've probably said this before in another post, but they nailed the costume. I think it's one of, if not the best, superhero costumes seen in a movie in a good while. On first glance it looks like the Raimi costume, but the webbing is less distracting, and the larger eyes make it look like it was ripped from the comics.

And I also feel he manages to sell the character in a way Maguire never really did. The suit just looks better on his physique, which is taller, more spindly than Maguire's..

Is Emma Stone contracted for AS3, or am I getting the feeling she'll snap her neck falling out of that clock tower?

They already showed him saving her from that fall iirc.

I think she is suppose to die in the 3rd one since MJ was cut from the second film to get more focus on her.
