In the wake of 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' 20th Century Fox planned a series of 'X-Men Origins' movies, with each film focusing on the early years of a particular mutant. As you know, a Wolverine one got made and the much talked about Magneto movie did not. However, a statement from a certain influential comic book writer has the internet buzzing again -- what became of that Magneto movie? Will it ever actually get made?
The 'X-Men' franchise has generally been kind to 20th Century Fox, with its massive stable of mutant superheroes leading to hits like 'X2' and 'X-Men: First Class.' However, it looks like the studio is looking to expand its horizons a bit and cast a spotlight on a corner of their share of the Marvel Universe that has been neglected so far. Are you ready for an 'X-Force' movie?
Although both 'Captain America 2' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' don't arrive in theaters until 2014, the earliest previews are already rolling out. However, both films aren't currently being sold to the mass audiences. No, they're being sold over at the CineEurope conference, where theater owners are given a glimpse at what they can expect to come their way in the near future.
When you think about comic books and popular franchises, chances are that you'll come across 'X-Men' at some point. Everyone's got their own favorite mutant with cool superpowers, but we're choosing the X-Men's favorite Cajun to feature in the Cosplay of the Day!
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' may already be deep into filming, but that doesn't mean they won't continue to cast new actors. The latest inductee to the already massive ensemble is Australian actor Josh Helman, whose role is being kept under wraps ... but we have a pretty solid guess as to who he is playing.
With its release date only a month away, 'The Wolverine' has unleashed yet another new poster on an unsuspecting populace, reminding us that this summer isn't just about 'Iron Man 3' and 'Man of Steel.' The poster doesn't reinvent the wheel in any way, but has everything you need to sell this movie: Hugh Jackman's physique, that same cityscape we've definitely seen before, and two gorgeous women.
While Marvel and Disney are making a fortune by tying together their superhero movies with an increasingly complicated chronology, it must be tempting for 20th Century Fox to look at the 'X-Men' movies in a similar way. However, director James Mangold has come out and made it pretty clear that the upcoming 'The Wolverine' will be its own thing, functioning as a standalone film first and foremost.
Like with any modern superhero movie, we fully expect that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will feature all kinds of chaos, mayhem and destruction. The only real questions are when and where the city-leveling action will take place. Director Bryan Singer has shared another new image from the set, and it suggests that some mutant action is heading to Paris, France ... and that the city probably won't be able to shrug off what happens to it.
Last week we heard that Kick-Ass himself, Aaron Johnson, is reportedly Marvel's top choice to play Quicksilver in 'The Avengers 2.' And as you already know, the character is already making an appearance in next summer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in the form of Evan Peters. Obviously, we're asking ourselves the same question everybody else is (or eventually will be): who is the better choice for Quicksilver?
