Hello everyone,this is my first article!:) Its written on a phone. I'd like to share some of my thoughts about [X-Men: Apocalypse](tag:1194267) with you.
I'll keep this as short as I can. Many of us have wondered about who the Horsemen will be and which new characters will be introduced in this movie. Pretty exciting stuff right? But what about the narrative of the movie?
I'm just speculating here so bear with me. We know a few things for sure; that the past changed in the 70s, affecting the timestream until our time,and that many of the original X-Men such as Professor X, Jean Grey and Cyclops are still alive to this day. We also know that AoA is set in the 80s.
We know this stuff,get on with it!
Please bear with me,I'm getting to my point.
At this point I want to introduce my theory. Fox will possibly go for something similar to the Wolverine and the X-Men series,where they changed the timeline with the Sentinels,thus replacing it with a timeline ruled by Apocalypse.
I'm not saying that the world will be ruled by Apocalypse in the 80s (which could also happen) but who knows really (except for the people over at Fox). What I'm trying to say is that something will happen at some point in the 70s or the 80s that will cause Apocalypse to make a move and reveal himself. Which is cool I guess.
So what's your point?
My point is that [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](tag:203942) left us in the present with Logan waking up and finding himself in an alternate timeline when all seems to be fine. Which means that Apocalypse has already been defeated.
Duh,they probably beat him in the 80s!
Sure,they might have defeated him in the 80s. To be honest I don't care. What I care about is the narrative of this movie as I said at the top.
What about it,you'll say. And I'll answer to you this. Since we know that Professor X is alive and he's about to have a long talk with Logan(end of DoFP),he could be the narrator of the story. Now there's a number of ways this may happen.
1. Simple narration
Being the lovable,amazing character he is,Professor X will simply explain the events of Age of Apocalypse in his own badass way.
2. Mind glimpse
Professor X will show Logan everything using his mind powers. He will allow him to access his mind and see everything the way Xavier saw it.
3. Unlocking Logan's mind
Okay,this is a two part theory. Please be a little more patient!
a) Repressed memories
Logan's memories will be repressed,resulting from his time travel. At this point the professor will work his way into his mind and reveal everything as the movie goes on.
b) Mixed memories
This is the last part of my theory. Having travelled back in time and changed it and then having woken up in the present, clueless,it is possible that Logan's memories of the two timelines will be mixed in a similar way to Sisco Ramon's dreams of the alternate(original) timeline in The Flash. The professor will then have to unjamble his memories using his powers. As his memories become clearer we'll get a view of the events as they're happening in Logan's mind!
That's all guys!! For those of you courageous enough to finish this article,thank you! And sorry for the length and any errors,this is my first time!
