    Those seem like some great deleted scenes. [​IMG]

    if all the above comes to be there would be no need for X2.5

    looks great if true
    I would just like to see a comic book cover gallery included once on one of these discs

    Most Wanted runner-up to The Matrix Reloaded for me, but a very close second. Hopefully these specs with turn out to be true...sounds like a wicked set.

    I hope they include the blooper reel that was mentioned a couple of months ago.

    Sadly I'm pretty sure they wont because of its supposed contents.

    I have a feeling the blooper reel might end up being Easter Egg material. It wouldn't surprise me.

    The blooper reel I read about sounded awesome. Like the scene with Stryker grilling Kelly about Vietnam, instead he was going off and swearing his head off at him non stop.

    Theres a link to the description

    As long as the video quality on this disc measures up to or surpasses(which is hard) the 1.5 disc, then we are in for a treat.

    Yeah and there was alot of sexual innuendo. One shot was of when mystique flips over that guard in the toilet and pulls his pants down, she pulls out a dildo and whacks it on his butt. Another bit was when they were at the campfire, mystique and magneto each eat a hotdog erotically. There was tamer stuff like when wolverine was dreaming he keeps on calling out bobbys name. And when wolverine goes to see the professor in cerebro, he prances in and they do the scene as if it was a musical. Plus there was lots of swearing.

    I believe it was stuff like that.

    Jeez...sounds like a hell of a gag-reel. I pray it makes the DVD.

    I seem to remember an interview with the producer of the X-Men 1.5 dvd where he said an 'Origins of the X-Men' (as in comic book origins) featurette was created for 1.5, but they couldn't include it due to rights issues or something like that. He remarked how it would hopefully end up on the X2 dvd instead - but it's not in that spec list above. It still looks like a fantastic set though.

    I'm surprised this is in 5.1 and not 6.1. A DTS-ES track would have been nice. Maybe that will be in the 2.5 release? [​IMG]

    Another apparent practical joke that had been filmed that I read about occurred during the filming of Stryker's attack on the Xavier mansion. From what I recall, Logan (Hugh Jackman) ran through the mansion naked and happened to run into a group of wolf-whistling women, including James Marsden's mother, who cheered and flashed money in front of Jackman. Now that would be pretty fun to see in a blooper reel!

    If the earlier report is true about all the X2 specs, then they'd have to do it right as a 2-disc set, and that would eliminate the need for X-Men 2.5 - unless they decided to unearth "new" material and tack on a promo for X3.

    Somehow I doubt something like that was filmed. It seems like a wild rumor. But hey if it did happen that would be...interesting.
