Fans had a conflicting relationship with how Fox managed his Marvel properties. Although the studio has released several clear winners, many have X-Men in particular, the films were divided among comic book fans.
Fox reportedly had a general disregard for the source material. Now one X-Men the actor admits that he was very disappointed with the way his role turned out.
“People from X: The Last Stand” portrays a powerful juggernaut as a minor villain
While Fox later developed spin-offs and studios X-Men the journey began with a single trilogy. Released in 2006, X-Men: The last stand was the first of the company ‘s two attempts to adapt the Dark Phoenix comic on the big screen. And he showed the debut of several favorite mutants on the big screen.
Among them was a superline known as Juggernout. In the pages of Marvel Comics, the character has a long and rich history. The story of his birth, Cain Marco, tells of a cruel family life and a dominant relationship with his brother-in-law, Charles Xavier, the famous Professor X. So Juggernaut fans were excited to hear that he was making his big screen debut.

Actor Winnie Jones said his role has changed dramatically and diminished
But the film version of “Juggerno” deprived the whole story. Instead, Magneto (Ian McKellen) recruits a mutant to join his cause, cutting Juggernaut a little more than a muscle. This was not the case when Winnie Jones (Pull out) subscribed to the film, he told Comic Book Movie.
I liked the role, but … I mostly spun. Matthew Vaughn signed me, and it was a great role and a great script, and Juggerno was a great hero. I signed up for three of them, and it will show you how serious I am about it. [Director] Brett Ratner basically disbanded the character. I was in my trailer half the time. This is one of the most disappointing jobs I’ve done, like, you know, “What am I doing here?”
According to Jones, Matthew Vaughn was ready to follow his directorial debut – a crime thriller in 2004. Ball cake – з X-Men continued by Brett Ratner (Rush hour) eventually took over the project. Vaughn will help reboot / prequel later X-Men: First grade in 2011.

Juggernaut will definitely get another chance at MCU
Worse, Jones said some fans have accused him of portraying Juggernaut. The actor claims that Ratner promised him new material after the changes in the script sharply reduced his role. But this never happened, and fans were left with a caricature of the iconic supermarriage.
“I know what that means for fans, and I felt like I was a bit of a scapegoat like no one ever talked about my side,” Jones told Comic Book Movie. “No one ever got up and said, ‘Wait a minute, we’ve completely whitewashed Winnie’s character.’
Juggernaut’s big screen debut may not have lived up to expectations. But the character returned years later Deadpool 2. Again, the film did not really explore its history. It is likely that “Men X” is heading to reboot in the Marvel cinematic universe, perhaps “Juggernaut” will finally get its due next time it appears on the screen.
