Not only did Simon Kinberg write and produce the upcoming superhero spectacular, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and its sequel 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and 2015's 'Fantastic Four' reboot -- he's also the creator and executive producer of 'Star Wars Rebels,' a new animated series that takes place between the events of 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope.' (Kinberg is also involved in the development of the yet-to-be-announced 'Star Wars' live action movies.)
Kinberg is currently promoting the aforementioned 'Days of Future Past,' but the subject of 'Rebels' did come up (okay, yes, because I asked about it) and Kinberg explains what it's like to write for characters who appeared in the original trilogy (it's rumored Lando Calrissian plays at least a small role) and threading the needle between the people who love the Original Trilogy and the people who love the prequels.

Those of you who saw 'X-Men: First Class' will know that James McAvoy's Professor X loses the use of his at the end of the film, setting him on the path to becoming the Patrick Stewart-in-a-wheelchair edition.

Most of of the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' clips and trailers have so far focused on the film's large ensemble of new and returning mutant superheroes, while the main villain, Peter Dinklage's Bolivar Trask, remains out of the spotlight. Though our latest look doesn't exactly give us a clear indication of what kind of character he is, it does give us a chance to see him come fact to face with Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique in a pretty cool action scene.

First things first: that cute little girl you see above sitting on Quicksilver's lap in a scene from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is not Scarlet Witch. When that image was first revealed, fans immediately began speculating that the little girl was a version of Wanda Maximoff, but director Bryan Singer has confirmed that's not her, while adding that Scarlet Witch almost was in the movie.

Whether or not 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has lived up to the hype of its cinematic brethren, there can be no arguing that 20th Century Fox's 'X-Men' franchise and Sony's 'Amazing Spider-Man' have looked to emulate the broad-spectrum success of 'The Avengers.' Might that mean that the 'X-Men' could spill into their own ongoing TV series after the events of 'Days of Future Past'? Writer-producer Simon Kinberg weighs in.
