Since X-Men: Days of Future Past hit the reset button on the entire X-Men movie universe, all of the new movies are going to have the opportunity to do whatever the heck they want. This gives director Bryan Singer and the other creative minds behind X-Men: Apocalypse the unique opportunity to recast characters who were botched the first time around and give them a second chance on the big screen. And few characters deserve a second chance as much as Warren “Angel” Worthington, who has been confirmed as part of Apocalypse’s superhero ensemble.

After careful consideration, and much consultation with my family and our spiritual advisor, I have decided to cancel my upcoming trip to Jurassic World. Sure, it looks great, and I’ve heard the breakfast buffet is a terrific value. But I just have this weird feeling that if I went there I would be eaten by a dinosaur. Don’t ask me why; just a hunch.

There are a lot of heroes in the Fast & Furious movies, but the unsung hero of the Fast & Furious movies is screenwriter Chris Morgan, who joined the franchise at its lowest point and helped transform a dying property about a couple of street racers into one of the most popular series (with one of the most cleverly complex mythologies) in all of Hollywood. It was Morgan’s idea to take the series international for The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and to bring back the original franchise stars, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, which happened in the fourth film, 2009’s Fast & Furious. Six years later, Furious 7 is primed to open in theaters, and even after the tragic passing of Walker in 2013, the series now shows no signs of slowing down. Diesel’s so confident in the movie that he’s already predicted it will win the Best Picture Oscar at next year’s Academy Awards (Morgan’s reaction when I asked if he wanted to double down on Diesel’s bet: “Uh ... [laughs] no comment.”)
