Would you rather have young Scott in DOFP or see older Scott alive in the altered future?
Honestly as a Scott fan I’d like to say that i’d be completely satisfied with a young Scott in DOFP because I think that the character deserves a run in the X-Film franchise where he’s able to be a main character and show how great he is. However, as someone who thought/thinks James Marsden was wonderful in his portrayal of Scott in the films I’d be a little more inclined to want to see older Scott alive in the film. I thought Jimmy did a good job with Scott and I would LOVE to see him return even if it was only for a cameo! For me because Scott is my favorite I’m happy to hear a younger version is around the corner, but given some of the potential casting choices I’m hearing for future films I’m almost afraid that they’ll cast him as someone who simply isn’t right for the role. IMO even though Nicholas Hoult is Hank, I think he might’ve been a good younger Cyclops since he’s got the look similar to James Marsden there, but alas at this rate I’m just hoping that the younger version of Cyclops will be someone who is not only a good actor, but who fits the part. I think James Marsden was a great cast even if he’s a bit shorter than Cyke is supposed to be.
So that was the long answer. The short answer is that I’ll be happy just to see Cyclops again, but if I had my choice in the matter I’d probably want to see older Scott alive as my first choice for lots of reasons. :)

Is it wrong….
Is it wrong that I’m bummed that we won’t have Cyclops/Wolverine together in X-Men DOFP. Don’t get me wrong I’m sure the movie will have it’s good points, but damn I would’ve loved to see them together again on screen. *sigh*
Hey Tumblr, let’s play a game! It’s called: What did Wolverine (and Storm) see on his phone?
Here, I’ll start us all off:
ETA (because I couldn’t help myself):
Here's a link to a template (it's transparent!) if you want to use it. Feel free to repost or reblog with your own edits and have fun!
Since this seemed like a fun game to play along with….
Every time I’m on tumblr I find myself wondering why there’s not more love for these two. Whether it’s the comic duo, or the movie version with Hugh Jackman and James Marsden or even in the various cartoon/anime versions these two have such a great dynamic that it’s a bummer not to see more love for them on the net. Just saying….
Hi! From where is the page in which Logan calls Scott "that ridiculously polite pollyanna who won't last a week"? Thanks!!!
I’m not sure of the exact title of the comic, but I’m guessing it came from this comic book series of X-Men Evolution at http://marvel.wikia.com/X-Men_Evolution_Vol_1 If anyone has a better answer for anon, then by all means please feel free to respond to the post :)
I just wanted to say thanks for the concerns. I logged in tonight to see I have a full inbox waiting for me here and I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m still around. Life (or should I say school) has kept me so busy that I haven’t had time to sit back, relax and do what I love on the blog here. It’s really late/early on my end here today, so I’m going to call it a night, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m still here. This blog is going to get active again with some great Scogan, Cyke, Wolverine, Jimmy, Hugh stuff in the near future so thanks for hanging in there :)
Also for everyone wrote me privately I’m so sorry for not getting on here, but I will try to get back with you asap. Tomorrow I’ll try to get a few posts in on here for everyone since it’s been a while!
Conversation Starter: What is your favorite Cyclops moment? What is your favorite Wolverine moment? What is your favorite Scott/Logan moment? (In any universe). I’m just curious to see what everyone has to say.
(movieverse) Do you have a head canon of how Scott and Logan became Scogan?
Good question anon. I actually have a few answers to this one. Three actually. In my head cannons (which I often use for the basis of a story when the mood inspires me) they stem from three points in time in the X-Men timeline. All of them are great starting points for the beginning of Scogan either on their own or combined in multiple head cannon scenarios. They are as follows:
1. Wolverine Origins: When Logan rescues Scott and the other mutants from Stryker’s facility it opens the door to a bond between them that no one else would be able to truly understand. What did they endure at Stryker’s hand? What common link do they have between them or better yet in my mind how does that really play into the future when Scott rescues Logan in X-1? In a lot of ways it sets the groundwork for these two together and the beginnings of Scogan.
2. In X-1 there is a deleted scene where Logan and Scott flirt around with one another when Logan requests Scott give him an order to which Scott orders Logan to put on one of his uniforms. The sexual tension between them is off the charts sizzling and after that scene when they are in the jet you can see that Scott is clearly flustered indicating that perhaps Scott saw or did something he’s nervous about with Logan when he was changing into Scott’s uniform.
3. In X-2 when Jean dies I think that’s another point in time where Scogan could’ve come about. The two of them had a tension between them up until this point and a Scogan fan could argue it was unresolved sexual tension (or maybe unmasked sexual tension brought on by something that they kept hidden previously in the timeline lol. I.E. the sexual nature of Logan’s return to the mansion. The exchange with him and Scott implies it all there, but still I’m getting off point). When Jean dies Scott and Logan sob in one another’s arms forming a bond with one another that no one else can truly understand. It’s in those moments and the ones in the President’s office where Logan is watching Scott longingly that you can see what he feels for Scott. Watching Scott in pain is killing him and you can tell from that moment on Logan wants to protect Scott and be there for him. Some may argue that Logan only stuck around for Jean, but in X-2 when she died he stayed for Scott plain and simple. That for me would be the biggest turning point for those two with one another in their grief and longing for one another.
So yeah, those would be my various points in time I’d spin a Scogan head cannon from. All of those equally wonderful and interesting in their own way.
….and this scene. It’s not part of the 3 moments I chose, but just look at the way Logan looks at Scott trying to get him to move on…with him perhaps? Maybe…
