While Marvel and Disney are making a fortune by tying together their superhero movies with an increasingly complicated chronology, it must be tempting for 20th Century Fox to look at the 'X-Men' movies in a similar way. However, director James Mangold has come out and made it pretty clear that the upcoming 'The Wolverine' will be its own thing, functioning as a standalone film first and foremost.
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.
With 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' continuing production (to hopefully reveal at least something small during this year's Comic-Con), Sir Patrick Stewart is hard at work reprising Charles Xavier -- or rather, he was hard at work. The beloved actor recently finished his four-and-a-half weeks of work in front of the camera, and from there he hit up Comicpalooza to give fans something to look forward to.
Who exactly is Peter Dinklage playing in Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'? Well, recent rumors have suggested that he'll be playing Bolivar Trask, the creator of the mutant-hunting Sentinels, and a new picture snapped on the set certainly backs that up. After all, he's certainly not dressed like a Mutant supervillain.
Some days, it feels like the more we learn about 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' the less we actually know about it. One of the ongoing mysteries has been the identity of Peter Dinklage's villain, with fans searching all over the 'X-Men' universe for a character who fits the Emmy-winning 'Game of Thrones' star. Now a new photo from the set has arrived, but does it help to clarify his on-screen identity?
Yesterday brought the somewhat startling news that Bryan Singer intends on using the character Quicksilver in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and in fact cast Evan Peters for the role; a controversial decision, since Joss Whedon had already stated Quicksilver will be appearing in 'The Avengers 2.' So which franchise do you think will be a better fit for the speedy character?
