Breaking down his profession in a 2020 video for Vainness Truthful, Marsden recalled being nearly compelled to decide on between “Superman Returns” and “X-Males: The Final Stand.” After “X-Males” and “X2” director/alleged sexual predator Bryan Singer (keep in mind after we used to let that man make films?) left the franchise to go helm “Superman Returns,” he approached Marsden about taking part in a task. As a result of a 3rd “X-Males” movie was up within the air on the time, Marsden accepted the provide with out pause, solely to search out himself caught between a rock and a tough place when “The Final Stand” all of the sudden started shifting ahead. Marsden defined:

“There was a second the place it felt prefer it may’ve been an both/or. Like, make a alternative. It turned out that we had been capable of work out the schedules. After which after I completed truly capturing ‘Superman Returns,’ I used to be ready to return and do a few weeks on, a couple of week and a half, on ‘X-Males 3,’ the place Cyclops meets his finish.”

Cyclops’ swift, violent dying by the hands of Jean Gray (who’s develop into the Darkish Phoenix by that time) early on in “The Final Stand” is fairly anticlimactic for a personality who was, in idea, one of many franchise’s protagonists. As soon as once more, Marsden deserved higher as an actor and he did not get it. It is a disgrace, too. Marsden could be a actual hoot if you let him. He is an absolute delight as Prince Edward in “Enchanted,” a sendup of your typical Disney prince who Marsden performs with nary a touch of self-awareness. And let’s not overlook him tenting it up because the grinning, singing ’60s teen dance present host Corny Collins within the 2007 “Hairspray.” However hey, not less than he received Baxtered by Superman for his troubles, eh?
