There's a rich tradition among the superhero movie elite of studios offering up the all the goods (and by goods we mean footage) before their movies even hit theaters. (See 'Captain America 2' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.') People wanna try before they buy, right? The same motto seems to apply to 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' which released even more photos, along with the latest magazine covers for the latest Total Film issue.
Sure, Seth Meyers gets a few good-natured digs in before Ian McKellen flips the script and quite literally takes over his own 'Late Night,' but that doesn't mean that anyone was having a bad time on the show last night. Meyers, finishing up his first week as 'Late Night' host, welcomed everyone's favorite pair of best friends -- McKellen and Patrick Stewart -- and the results were both charming and quite funny.
The main thrust of the advertising campaign for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is that the film will contain characters from both the original 'X-Men' franchise and prequel film 'X-Men: First Class,' making this one of the biggest superhero movies ever made. Although the trailer and previous images have given us looks at this enormous ensemble of black leather-clad mutant warriors, the film's official site revealed a series of character portraits, giving us our best look at 17 of the characters.
A few days ago 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' delighted future audiences with news that Seth Meyers' former 'SNL' co-star Fred Armisen had signed on to lead the house band, and now it seems the new 'Late Night' has another beloved 'SNL' staple headed its way. Not only can we expect Bill Hader's revered "Stefon" to make appearances, but the first week's rounds of guests include everyone from Amy Poehler to Kanye West, Lena Dunham, Ian McKellen and more!
With 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' continuing production (to hopefully reveal at least something small during this year's Comic-Con), Sir Patrick Stewart is hard at work reprising Charles Xavier -- or rather, he was hard at work. The beloved actor recently finished his four-and-a-half weeks of work in front of the camera, and from there he hit up Comicpalooza to give fans something to look forward to.
We're so lucky to be getting not one but TWO 'X-Men' movies in the span of two years. First up is 'The Wolverine,' coming at us this July, while 2014 will see Bryan Singer return to the director's seat for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' While these two flicks are seemingly separate adventures for their respective heroes, could there possibly be some underlying connection between them? Could a possible secret cameo from an 'X-Men' alum flow 'The Wolverine' right into 'Days of Future Past'?
