MANY MANY thanks to your comments and dedication.

- A new ending
- A new climax (not at the end)

- New title sequence

The intention for this fanedit was to make these characters closer to the comics and darker in nature.
Cheesy lines removed throughout, needless exposition removed, dialogued trimmed for pace and repetitions removed.
Plot thread reworked and some dropped completely. Motivations tweaked.

This was achieved as follows (SPOILERS BELOW):
(SPOILERS BELOW)
(SPOILERS BELOW)
(SPOILERS BELOW)
- the Rogue/Bobby sub plot love story is removed
- the train station attack and Ellis Island attack in X1 removed.
- Magneto starts of in jail...we don't need to know why (you will see how it's made to work)
- Also Mystique attacks upfront so that the senator is already her at the senate in X.
- The movie opens with X 3 opening and unused titles constructed from scratch.
- Angel subplot removed (but he is in it???...sorry not telling)
- Selected deleted scenes and new sequences were inserted to allow for better pacing or character development.
- Deleted scenes were finished off with sound effects and music where needed and aspect ratio corrected (where required)
- NOT all deleted scenes were used (I want to tell a story, not cram all footage together for the sake of it)
- More music and unused cues were inserted to make certain scenes less empty
- Biggest headaches were the transitions between films which have been smoothed in a number of ways....(you need to watch to see how)
- No scene was left untouched.
- There are over 500 edits
(SPOILERS END)
(SPOILERS END)
(SPOILERS END)

Time needed for this edition: 14 months and 1 marriage (joke)

Persons involved: ME

FINALLY
I have been inspired by the Phantom Editor.
Using techniques described by the Phantom Editor I have attempted to recraft the Xmen trilogy into this.
I am grateful to all the comments and suggestions which led me to further polish this to where it is
especially Boon 23 who's never ending support and candid comments make me see the error of my ways (and ditch the unworkable even if I love it...THANKS)

AND

THERE WILL BE a Version 4
...why....
there are a some unexplained pops in the audio...not many, but I need to remove them.
Where this was over original version audio only, I have already done so. But some are over section containing multiple audio (new music, custom dialogue etc).
Those scenes will need to be complete rebuilt in order to make them flawless, and right now, can't quite face it.

ENJOY...

6. Hank arrives
13. Cure announce
14. Jimmy Lab
15. Magneto Lair
16. hank School
17. Church of Magneto
18. Hank and Jimmy
19. Bobby Lake
12. Jail Break
20. as per RW v2 but Rogue now leaves mansion, goes for cure, and returns at end addressing the issue of her disappearance.
Scenes deleted from RW v2.0 are the post Jean death discussion and Bobby and Logan corridor chat from X2.
This preserves the momentum better, and a caption "6 weeks later" establishes the passage of time.
The rogue bobby romance is still absent by clipping on line form the finale, and a line from Pyro to Bobby at the
protest in a newly constructed scene using the newscaster, rogues arrival and the attack, into a single better new scene.
TRILOGY v3.0
Wolverine fight at open established again and no other change. version used is from RW v 3.0 which is a trimmed version.

Further minor tweaks to audio and sync. Line trim in jet and line restored (spot it...try).
End Audio of closing scene and end credit typo fixed


WRAITH









UNUSED STRUCTURES AND IDEAS


--------------------------
X-MEN - REQUIEM WAR



X3 Requiem War

116. Audio segue created

117. Upside down Beast cut, redundant

118. 3 months later caption added.

119. Scene on capture re-ordered and reference to the old gut being president removed to maintain continuity with X2.

120. "do you know who she's been imitating" deleted. Its reminder for non believers who did not see X1 & X2

122. Mystique attack in normal prison during briefing cut since there to show of FX and tell viewer of her powers.

123. Scene reordered to remove the "viable" comment and ends on mobile prisons and cuts to relocated mobile Prison so

124 "do you know who you are talking too" line in mobile prison deleted for continuity with X2.

125. Music and sound of helicopter landing at Alcatraz from Next scene kept but deleted scene and Audio from X2 of Xavier and Cyclops in Helicopter use to tie in.

126. Segue to Bobby and Rogue argument to maintain plot line but new segue to Beast briefing on cure

127. Line "impact on mutant community" relocated to here to allow cut to Xavier in church

128. Segue cuts away from Xavier saying "Storm" giving impression Xavier senses the disgruntled Mutants following on from Beats line

129. Church scene now underscored with music from X2 added to entire scene.

129. "Back Off" & "I know you control Metal" deleted from Church sequence

130. Cut to Scott mourning Jean underscored by Dark Phoenix Music.

I'm back.

I just finished updating in SD Requiem War. Now v 5.04. I've corrected errors pointed out by some reviewers, removed 3 scenes, added two back, adjusted flashbacks to include new footage from Origins Wolverine and The Wolverine, re ordered a few scenes and added a new coda from Days of Future past. This new coda allows for my two new X Men planned edits.

This is completed but not released...in SD...yet
Next...
This means my long planned HD rebuild ( which is next) will be followed by 2 new edits based on the remaining 5 Xmen newer movies. 

X-Men: Revealed, 
which is A magneto origin story using all magneto back footage before meeting Charles, with a plot blend of X first Class and elements of apocalypse, followed by 

X Men:Weapon X,
 a wolverine origin story heavily reworking Days of Future Past, the two Wolverine movies and (pending viewing), Logan!!!

.....Requiem War was one of my earliest edits....it has many minor technical issues which will be easier to rebuild in HD from scratch...most of all, the wires from the Deathstrike deleted scene added back in are no longer visible.....

W
If you would be willing to preview, PM me.

Hi

It is a further evolution of that edit. Given it near 10 yrs old and the last revisions in the other thread were in 2009...up to you if it should merge. I think it is right to merge them.

Would my HD rebuild be a new thread? A lot of people viewed this and there was a lot of feedback I incorporated in this updated SD version which will also appear in the HD version. However, my expanded tools and skills will mean further changes that were beyond me 10 yrs ago.

PS, how or where do people now post and obtain edits.
I completed 2 edits of the Hobbit 6 months ago which friends have been blown away with....and, apart from the log on access issues I had, I have no clue on what the current best way to make them available is.....

I'm rooting for you.  I can't help but admire how meticulous you are.  Can't wait to witness the final product... if you decide v5 is the last one anyway.

This edit is now complete...it was not possible to rebuild in hd, but I took on board many comments and suggestions and added material from various later Xmen movies to further flesh out Logan's journey.

There will be a way to obtain soon
