Remember back when rumors of Patrick Stewart returning to future 'X-Men' movies as the beloved Professor Charles Xavier were circling, and then the actor pretty much confirmed them at the Montreal Comic Convention? Well, we didn't realize it'd be happening so soon! Actually... we kind of did, but we thought it would just be him. Turns out, Professor X will officially be appearing in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' along with another well-known character from previous 'X-Men' films.
Bryan Singer only recently discovered Twitter, and already he's following the behavior of fellow director Darren Aronofsky in that he's keeping us updated on all his latest movie projects. While we continue to wait for the latest news on his return to the 'X-Men' franchise in 'Days of Future Past,' Singer has revealed he's working on a new 'Jack the Giant Slayer' trailer and has shelled out some pics from it. But when will it hit?
It was great to hear that Bryan Singer would be returning to the 'X-Men' movie franchise for the upcoming 'X-Men: First Class 2' (dubbed 'Days of Future Past'). We were all thrown a bit off balance when the originally planned director Matthew Vaughn very randomly bowed out, but we feel the 'X-Men' and 'X2' director is more than qualified to handle things from here on out.
However, with all the changes 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has been through, will Singer be able to pull things together for the initially planned January 2013 production start date? Unless he's somehow acquired mutant abilities to turn back time, the answer is no.
There's so much date-changing around here that it's almost hard to keep up! So let's add another movie to the pile: 'Jack the Giant Slayer' (which just got it's name changed from 'Jack the Giant Killer') has now been moved from its March 22 slot back a few weeks to March 1.
It's one of those things that doesn't feel real until you've actually seen footage. After all, there's no way to know for sure that NBC spent $10 million on a pilot/Halloween special remake of 'The Munsters' until you've seen actual evidence with your own two eyes. Alas, the first teaser for 'Mockingbird Lane' has arrived proving that yes, someone thought remaking the 'The Munsters' was a good idea and worth a lot of money.
Once upon a time, in some fans' far off fantasy, they dreamt of the day where Twentieth Century Fox would come to their senses and make a movie out of one of the best X-Men comic story arcs, Days of Future Past. We're happy to report that it's finally turning into a reality.
