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.
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.
There once was a time when many X-Men spinoffs were proposed - including Magneto, Gambit and Deadpool films - but none actually happened. With a new regime at Fox, the 'X-Men' producers want to revisit the idea of mutant spinoffs and they have a new character in their sights: Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique.
Bryan Singer is back to helm 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' and in this new featurette, we hear from the director himself on why he's thrilled to return to the franchise. Yeah, that's great and all, but even better is getting a glimpse at some footage from the upcoming sequel, which unites both the classic 'X-Men' cast and the new, younger cast in a time-traveling adventure to stop a common threat. While Quicksilver's busy chomping on burgers in those Carl Jr. ads, Wolverine and Professor X have some real work to do.
There are three major superhero movies arriving in theaters in the next two months and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' somehow feels like the riskiest endeavor. By bringing back director Bryan Singer and merging the original cast and the 'X-Men: First Class' cast via time travel, it's undoubtedly the biggest X-Men movie to date. It could be good or it could be bad, but as these six new featurettes show us, it was certainly an adventure to make.
The 2014 Oscars were loooong. In fact, we can't be entirely sure that they're not still going on somewhere. So, you can't be blamed if you took a pee break, got up to get some snacks and/or dozed off and missed something. It's OK, we got your back. In case you missed anything, we have a full list of all the Oscar winners, plus this quick handy wrap-up of all the other fun moments you may have missed.
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.
