In the wake of 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' 20th Century Fox planned a series of 'X-Men Origins' movies, with each film focusing on the early years of a particular mutant. As you know, a Wolverine one got made and the much talked about Magneto movie did not. However, a statement from a certain influential comic book writer has the internet buzzing again -- what became of that Magneto movie? Will it ever actually get made?
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Although both 'Captain America 2' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' don't arrive in theaters until 2014, the earliest previews are already rolling out. However, both films aren't currently being sold to the mass audiences. No, they're being sold over at the CineEurope conference, where theater owners are given a glimpse at what they can expect to come their way in the near future.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' may already be deep into filming, but that doesn't mean they won't continue to cast new actors. The latest inductee to the already massive ensemble is Australian actor Josh Helman, whose role is being kept under wraps ... but we have a pretty solid guess as to who he is playing.
Like with any modern superhero movie, we fully expect that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will feature all kinds of chaos, mayhem and destruction. The only real questions are when and where the city-leveling action will take place. Director Bryan Singer has shared another new image from the set, and it suggests that some mutant action is heading to Paris, France ... and that the city probably won't be able to shrug off what happens to it.
Last week we heard that Kick-Ass himself, Aaron Johnson, is reportedly Marvel's top choice to play Quicksilver in 'The Avengers 2.' And as you already know, the character is already making an appearance in next summer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in the form of Evan Peters. Obviously, we're asking ourselves the same question everybody else is (or eventually will be): who is the better choice for Quicksilver?
Director Bryan Singer has been hard at work filming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' for some time now, and his busy schedule certainly hasn't stopped his frequent Twitter updates straight from the set. His latest photo reveal of the 2014 superhero epic gives us a look at franchise villain/antihero/"dark knight" Magneto, once again played by the dashing Michael Fassbender, and it looks like he's up to no good.
Hugh Jackman has been playing the clawed, mutant superhero Wolverine since the first 'X-Men' movie back in 2000; a run that has spanned six films. Like all things that last longer than a decade, it's starting to get a little old for Jackman. Although we can still look forward to his take on the iconic superhero in 'The Wolverine' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' it sounds like Jackman's days as an X-Man are coming to a close.
