Now that all the dust, fire, blood and snow has settled on Game of Thrones Season 6, it’s a comfort to look back on the crazier theories that never came to pass. No, Lady Stoneheart won’t be joining the series, and Bran won’t be whispering sweet-nothings to the Mad King just yet, but above all else, we can finally let go of that dumb “Sansa is pregnant” theory. So says Sophie Turner herself!
Over-analyzing Game of Thrones is essentially an international pastime at this point, and you could bet fans would put aside the many theories circling Season 6 to decode a mysterious letter Sansa wrote in Sunday’s “Broken Man.” Not only do we know where the letter was headed, but exactly what it says.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters tomorrow (technically tonight for you early birds), and you already have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to see in Bryan Singer’s latest X-sequel: bald James McAvoy, young versions of familiar mutants, an unrecognizable Oscar Isaac as the titular villain, etc. You’ve seen the trailers, you get it. But there’s at least one scene that we won’t get to see — at least not in the theater — and the way Bryan Singer describes it, it sounds like it could have been pretty fun.
Full of revelation though the latest Game of Thrones may have been, Tormund and Brienne shippers could only add a few more stolen glances to the newly fan-favorite pairing. That is, until we see the Mean Girls teasing scene Gwendoline Christie reveals was ultimately cut from last night’s “The Door.”
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.
