For all you mutant loving fans, I have made a list of a few characters who I feel have been cheated out of their role in the movie adaptations. Before I start, I will admit that bringing these characters to life does in fact produce complications, and they can't possibly please every fan, I get that. With that in mind, there are a few characters who have been cast off, some of which were so annoyingly done it pains me. I will order these from my opinion of least importance, to greater importance. Along with the characters I will provide an actor I could see potentially playing the role, we all have different opinions, so don't be an aggressive donkey in the comment section. With that being said i'm open to discussion on who you would think to be more fit for the role! So without further ado here is my list of mutants who deserved better, or deserve at least an appearance:
Jubilee is a really cool character! Jubilee is gifted with the ability to generate explosive energy, and is one of the youngest team members of the x-men. After running away from home, she toughed it out as a street performer in front of a mall. She was saved at the mall from a group of mutant hunters, from the female leads of the x-men . Honestly, i would have thought this character would have been introduced already, considering Fox, is hell bent on shoving Wolverine down our throats. However Jubilee spent a lot of time with Wolvie, after saving his butt from a Crucifixion.
Actor: Brenda Song
Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, AKA "Cable," is a very interesting character, with a very interesting back story. Cable was birthed by a clone of Jean Grey, named Madelyne Prior, and his father was Scott Summers. After being left by Scott, he was taken from his mother by Sinister, and kept in a lab where he was experimented on. Cable was infected by a techno organic virus given to him by none other than apocalypse, to save his son Scott sent Nathan 2000 years into the future to be cured.
Actor: Gerald Butler
There is only one other character in the X-men movieverse that has been more of a disappointing story line than cyclops, we'll get to that later. When I first witnessed the death of Cyclops on screen in the third X-men film at first I took it lightly, I figured he was going to show up at the end of the film. At the end of the movie, when I still did not see a return I was angry! Cyclops may be one of the key members of the X-men, and he died so unexpectedly, and even more tastelessly. I did not agree with such a useless death, or for the most part the whole movie, but lets stay on topic. When an appearance of Cyclops in the X-men origins movie arose, I was not impressed. Cyclops, a team leader, in my opinion did not fit with the directors, because Wolverine is their paycheck. Having Cyclops in the mixture creates a power struggle between the two characters, and as its been shown time and time again Wolverine has to have the spotlight, so they killed him off.
Kurt Wagner, AKA Nightcrawler, is by far my favorite X-men member, in his appearance of X2 I was honestly thrilled, the actor was decent and i enjoyed the character. Where the problem lies is, I wanted more!!!!! I felt teased, and upset, when The Last Stand came out he was absent, with no mentions. A powerful fan based character like NC I figured the movies were lined up for him to take a part in. I believe if this character were to be brought back, I would hope he would be younger with a fresh actor to take his place, but as I said I did enjoy the work of the previous actor, but this character needs a fresh rebooted start.

5. Of course................DEADPOOL
OK folks I know you may be tired of the same old song and dance, Deadpool needs a movie, Deadpool was a joke. The funny thing is I agree with every single thing being said on the subject. Deadpool may be one of the coolest characters in the Marvel industry. The merc with a mouth's portrayal was however so uncool it almost makes me wonder if it was a hoax. Aside from the mistreatment of Cyclops, where the director was going with this version of Deadpool i am not sure, everything wrong with the character I feel I don't need to indulge but, the actor was perfect for the role. My advice to the directors, lose the Mortal Kombat theme, take away the laser beams, and give him some katanas and remove the whole wolverine act, once again I know Wolvie is your shining star but come on!!!! On a final note if a Deadpool movie is to occur it needs to be rated R. The kiddies can have their Friendly Neighborhood spider-man, let us have our gory Deadpool!
Actor: Ryan Reynolds
