A live action reboot/remake of the X-Men Evolution (2000-2003) animated series. As with the cartoon, in an Evolution series many of the traditional characters would play lead roles (with the addition of a few new characters) except they would be of high school age instead of adults. Certain characters such as Mystique, Wolverine, Magneto, and Storm are still adults and often serve as mentors or leaders to the younger characters while characters such as Nightcrawler, Jean Grey, Avalanche, and Shadowcat would need to be played by younger actors.
The series focused on the younger members of the X-Men trying to live out normal lives despite the mutations while often receiving opposition from humans and mutants alike especially in the later episodes of the series.
As the series was cut short and aimed at a young demographic hopefully a live action reboot on a network such as HBO - or at least FOX or the CW - could not only tell a longer story but also a more dramatic and mature story. It's a nice thought if it could ever happen…
