Although you’d never know it from the film’s trailers, X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the 80s and, in certain set photos we’ve seen, there is a very 80s aesthetic to the movie. One X-Men character who seemingly would fit perfect into this world is...
Grain of salt warning, as this rumor is nowhere near confirmed, but feel free to file it somewhere between “plausible” and “probable.” While Fox has been working to expand their X-Men spinoff films and nurturing Deadpool’s corner of that universe, the studio has yet to announce the next proper X-Men sequel. Bryan Singer has expressed interest in returning to the franchise after he films 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which means it could be a few years or so before another X-Men movie hits theaters. In the meantime, the latest rumor about the future of X-Men suggests a film that could make some fans pretty happy.
Game of Thrones whipped fans into a fiery frenzy with its second full trailer for Season 6, revealing several surprise returns and the biggest dragons yet, among other Snow-y secrets. We couldn’t help but dive way deeper into each frame of footage. So what new secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
What, you thought one clip and a new full-length trailer were enough Game of Thrones for one day? We’ll see it, and raise you three new Season 6 clips, as we learn what became of Sansa and Theon at Winterfell, how Cersei’s handling the bad news about Myrcella, and more!
Most fans were disappointed (to say the least) by X-Men: The Last Stand, which took one of the most popular X-Men arcs — The Dark Phoenix Saga — and turned it into an Evanescence music video that ultimately did Jean Grey and Scott Summers a major disservice. But Bryan Singer is getting another chance with the beloved mutant couple in X-Men: Apocalypse, which will effectively reboot the characters thanks to that timeline reset in Days of Future Past. Singer shares some thoughts on what we can expect from the newer, younger duo, giving us hope for a little Dark Phoenix redemption.
We have a pretty stacked summer ahead of us, kicking off in May with Captain America: Civil War, followed by the (hopefully) equally epic X-Men: Apocalypse. The mutants of First Class and Days of Future Past are no longer the new kids on the block, as younger versions of Jean Grey, Scott Summers and more are getting in on the action in the upcoming sequel. To better familiarize you with the lineup, 20th Century Fox has released several new character posters which boast various mutants old and new along with their respective powers.
Distracted thought we are by every clue toward Jon Snow’s return, Game of Thrones fans remain uneasy at the prospect of further depictions of sexual violence, and disproportionate misfortune for female characters. A prior Game of Thrones director even suggested producers had heard concerns, and would tone down sexual violence in Season 6, but not so, say showrunners. What fun!
Following the reveal of nine different Empire magazine covers for X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox has released a few more images from the upcoming conclusion to the new X-Men trilogy, featuring another look at Ben Hardy’s Angel, Oscar Isaac’s En Sabah Nur (aka the titular Apocalypse) and some brand new costumes for the heroic mutant crew.
Game of Thrones has been less than kind to even the strongest of female characters over the years, and if a new report is to be believed, Season 6 might finally see the women of Westeros come out ahead. New Entertainment Weekly covers reveal the six major heroines of the new season, some looking far better off than we last left them.
Game of Thrones brought us all to life with its first full trailer for Season 6, teasing a certain Snow-y resurrection and plenty of new deaths for Westeros alike. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
