Now that X-Men:First Class has shown that the public can accept a (nearly) sans Wolverine version of X-Men, a whole host of possible spin-offs are possible.

His character might be…a little less spritely since X-Men: The Last Stand, but a spin-off could explore a continuity from before the first X-Men. In an interview with ETOnline:

ETonline: You’ve mentioned a few of your other roles — if you had the chance to revisit a character from your past and play the next chapter in their story, who would it be?
Marsden: Cyclops [from the X-Men movies]. It was great to be a part of those movies, people loved them – it’s still the thing I get recognized for the most — but I feel like because there were so many cast members in this 90 minute movie, there was never enough time to give him the depth that other characters had. The first movie was really Wolverine’s saga – and the second and third as well. If I had a dollar for every time someone came up to me on the street and said, “I would have loved to see more Cyclops..”

ETonline: You could finance your own spin-off?
Marsden: [laughs] Exactly. Yes. I don’t think his character was ever fleshed out as much as I would have liked. I may have also been a bit on the young side for those films. If I could go back and put on the glasses and suit again where we do a film to learn more about the character, that’s the one I would pick. He’s ripe for that.

What do you think? Would you pay for a solo Cyclops feature?

    I’d watch but I can’t see it being any good. Maybe I’m bias because I’ve never really like Cyclopes, but from what I remember he doesn’t exactly have a thrilling story…

      Cyclops is a much more interesting and fleshed out character in the comics, and I think if done right it could make for a good solo movie.

    Yes. I would love it. Cyclops is an epic character. So is Nightcrawler and Storm.

    YES, absolutely! I was disappointed with the overall lack of Cyclops in the original X-men trilogy (especially in the 3rd one, but then again, the 3rd movie was kind of a train wreck altogether.)

    Would it be too much to hope for a Gambit movie? Probably. :p

    while Cyclops would be pretty cool, I would definately prefer a Storm one, either before the original, or after Last Stand. it would be interesting to see her as a teenager, or running the X-Men

    I’d go and see it in a heartbeat. If only we were so lucky!
