It brings back Rogue, Jean Grey and Cyclops too. Technically the first two x movies could have still happened and some aspects of the wolverine (minus his dreams of killing Jean since now that does not happen). It also ties first class to the first Xmen series too with a little more cohesion. I am interested in seeing how Mysteque and magneto get re acquainted after the events of 73 as well.
There is no reason to assume that this movie,DOFP, "basically" or completely wipes X3 from existence/continuity,.Obviously somethings changed, but that does not mean that the same events unfolded the same a very similar way.
And that includes all the deaths still happening.Jean,Scott and Pro-X may still have died...........and returned as Pro-X and Jean have already done.Jean died in X-2 and returned in X-3, Pro-X died in X3 and returned by "the Wolverine", althou not explained.
What do you mean by this film bringing back Rogue?She never died or left.She was back at the school at the end of X3.
It completely wipes it from existence. X3, that is. You can't have the events of this film and the events of that film happening in the same universe. It's literally impossible. Xavier and Eric were both much older men when they first came across Jean. Here, they were much younger and it was around the same time frame, or at least not much before they found Jean. Not to mention, Xavier could walk in the flashback in X3, whereas he's clearly a paraplegic at the end of this film. There's no way he went back to walking and giving up his powers just before meeting Jean, seeing how powerful she was. This film completely wipes 3 off the map, and good portions of 2 off as well. The only thing that remains is Striker's experiments with the Weapon X program and Logan becoming Wolverine. Sadly, X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn't exactly written out. (It should be.) The Wolverine, I thought, was a pretty good flick. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Sad to see it's effectively written out as well. Without the X-Men falling apart and Xavier being dead, there's no reason for Logan to be in Japan. Especially when he clearly has a home, now.
