We got our first taste of what's in store for the next 'X-Men' film, 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' in the post-credits scene for 'Days of Future Past,' which previewed the all-powerful villain in his early years in ancient Egypt. With a release date set for May 2016, director Bryan Singer and his writing team have been putting together the script, and while little is known about the plot, an Instagrammed photo of the current treatment reveals that The Four Horsemen will indeed have a part to play.
If you saw 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' this weekend, chances are you walked away with a couple of questions about that mysterious post-credits sequence. For fans unfamiliar with comic book canon, the identity of the character was a pretty big question mark (which is why you should read our handy guide), but there was one thing of which all of us were uncertain: just who the heck was that actor?
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' features the true big-screen debut of some of the most iconic villains in Marvel comics history: the mutant-hunting robots known as the Sentinels. Thanks to the film's time-traveling plot, we get to see two very different versions of these things in action. However, some newly released concept art gives us a glimpse at what they could have looked like.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' claimed the box office after one weekend in theaters with a cast that includes more mutants than you can throw a Sentinel at, and it's one of the best 'X-Men' films to date. Because we know you're wondering when you can bring this puppy home, we've got the first look at the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Deluxe Blu-ray Edition!
For better or worse, the current status of the superhero movie can be tracked back to one film. One modestly budgeted production designed the template and set the tone for a film movement that still hasn't peaked. Some remember it fondly. Some think it got more wrong than it did right. But there's no denying it: Bryan Singer's 'X-Men' is undoubtedly one of the most important and influential films of the past two decades.
First things first: that cute little girl you see above sitting on Quicksilver's lap in a scene from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is not Scarlet Witch. When that image was first revealed, fans immediately began speculating that the little girl was a version of Wanda Maximoff, but director Bryan Singer has confirmed that's not her, while adding that Scarlet Witch almost was in the movie.
Tuesday night saw the release of the final 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer, which toted Sentinels and action and one speedy Quicksilver, but how's about we take a step behind the camera? Two new featurettes emerged online, and there's a ton of behind-the-scenes shenanigans to be seen from Mystique and Magneto.
Gambit has been a fan favorite 'X-Men' character ever since his first full appearance in "Uncanny X-Men #266" back in 1990. You would think that would lead to fast track to the big screen, but Gambit's road to cinematic stardom has been shaky at best. The character made a brief appearance in the horrible 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (played by Taylor Kitsch), but has since not been re-introduced to movie audiences. That could all change as Channing Tatum admits he's met with the 'X-Men' producers about the part.
The announcement of 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' a film that would undoubtedly see one of the most famous villains of the 'X-Men' universe rise to the big screen, came as a delight to fans of these Marvel characters, even with director Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' waiting to be released. We still have a little over a month left to see the sequel to 'First Class,' but 'Apocalypse' is already looking to up the ante.
