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'?
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.
'X-Men' fans revolted when our beloved Professor X was obliterated in front of our eyes by the Phoenix in 'X-Men: The Last Stand.' Although 20th Century Fox is entitled to completely change the comic book story line, the way in which Xavier met his end was unbecoming of his legacy.
However, there's been some talk as of late suggesting that we haven't seen the last of Sir Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier in the 'X-Men' franchise just yet. And now, we know for sure that this will in fact become a reality... at least, according to what the actor has said. But will it be for the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'?
