ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, ‘Wonder Woman’ goes after an incredible director, ‘Captain America: Civil War’ casts an incredible actor, and ‘Suicide Squad’ finds a Harley Quinn who may be (you guessed it) incredible.
With every new ‘X-Men’ movie comes new mutants (no, not the New Mutants) and ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be no exception. While some may say that the ‘X-Men’ films are perhaps a little too overstuffed with every mutant they can get their hands on (did we really need Sunspot or Blink?), it’s hard to deny to return of Cyclops and Jean Grey; major characters and core mutants who will make their long-awaited appearance in the new era of “young” ‘X-Men’ films. So, now that we know we’ll see these characters, it’s time to find out who is going to play them in the movie.
While you'd think 'X-Men: Apocalypse' would focus the majority of its attention on its titular character, Fox and director have some different ideas. When you've got two of the hottest stars in Hollywood contractually obligated to star in your movie, you make them the center of the action. And, that's what is reportedly happening with the 'X-Men: Apocalypse' script, which is being developed around Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence and the burgeoning romance between Magneto and Mystique.
One of the most delightful surprises of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was Quicksilver, the fast-talking, even faster-moving superhero played by Evan Peters, previously best known for his roles on 'American Horror Story.' Although early looks at the character online gave us the impression that he might be something of a joke, Quicksilver ended up delivering one of the best scenes of the film. Not only will he be returning for 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' but the second unit director is teasing that we might see the young hero strike out on his own at some point.

From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Warner Bros. makes big superhero plans, Marvel wants to start a Civil War, and a certain actress may be playing a certain character in 'Batman vs. Superman.'
It's been a super busy news week in the world of superheroes, with Marvel and Warner Bros. seemingly courting a ton of actors for roles this week. But don't leave Fox out of the mix: they've got some big plans for 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' and those plans involve landing someone for the role of the titular villain. Could that someone be Tom Hardy?
With 'X-Men: First Class' and 'Days of Future Past' essentially rebooting the franchise for the better, there's still hope for the recently announced 'Deadpool' movie. If you've been wondering how (or if) these films and mutants will cross paths or even share a timeline with all the time-hopping, we've got an answer, courtesy of 'X-Men' producer Simon Kinberg.

This week, 'X-Men' fans have a lot to look forward to, 'Big Hero 6' gets a great new trailer, and 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' reveals its Mockingbird.
Bryan Singer has directed most of the 'X-Men' movies, with the exception of 'First Class' and the standalone Wolverine adventures. Despite the box office success of 'Days of Future Past,' however, his return as director for 2016's 'X-Men: Apocalypse' was in doubt.
