See Concept Art For The Sentinels As They Were To Appear In X2: X-Men United
You can catch your first glimpse of what these villains were meant to look like, before Bryan Singer and Fox decided that the extra $8 million required to visualize these robots for X2 was just too rich for anyone's blood.
Bryan Singer May Not Direct X-Men: Apocalypse Due To Sex Abuse Allegations
Callous as this might sound, the issue in play here is less Bryan Singer’s guilt or innocence and more his time. Rumors have been swirling for awhile that the director will be able to provide irrefutable proof that he wasn’t in Hawaii when the abuse allegedly occurred and that he was at the London Superman Returns premiere when the other incident allegedly happened.
Is Marvel Intentionally Sabotaging Its Relationship With Fox?
It sounds as if there's something brewing between Marvel and Fox. News leaked this weekend that in the next couple of months, Marvel is putting both Fantastic Four and Ultimate Fantastic Four on a hiatus. It makes sense to lose one of them, as the team isn't necessarily one of Marvel's highest sellers, but both?
7 Thrilling X-Men Stories That Should Be Adapted After X-Men: Apocalypse
We decided to seek out six beloved storylines (and one bonus!) that could conceivably provide material for a future film in the X-Men Saga. Read on and tell us if there's one you think we've missed.
X-Men: Apocalypse Will Feature Original Trilogy And First Class Mutants
What do we know about Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse? The answer is not very much. Few details have leaked out about the project since it was announced last December, and while we know that the movie will be set in the '80s and center on Professor Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) , Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), we don't really know for sure which other mutants may be joining them.
X-Men's Jennifer Lawrence Says Mystique's Makeup Process Involves Sitting On A Bicycle Seat
Go ahead and close your eyes for a moment -- wait, read this first -- and imagine Jennifer Lawrence perched atop a bicycle seat, covered in blue. This is the mental picture Lawrence paints for us during her interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Bryan Singer Is Hoping You Just Forget About Certain X-Men Continuity Problems
At the end of the day these movies only really need to be able to stand by themselves, and Singer shouldn't stay awake at night wondering if he's already wasted a chance to cast someone big for Jubilee (who appears in the background of X-Men). While the hardcore fans are walking wiki pages for these films, most people see these movies once a year or every two years, and not every plot point stays fresh in their head.
After Gambit, 7 More Classic X-Men Characters Who Should Be Recast
During adaptation, such changes need to be made, which is why the stars of the X-Men comics are not the same as the stars of the X-Men movies. The liberties taken have, in many ways, robbed movie fans of a chance at seeing some engaging storylines while also cheating the hardcore comic fans out of some of the more treasured characters and moments of a fifty year old canon.
Channing Tatum Is Officially Your Gambit, As Taylor Kitsch Gently Weeps
The question is, when would we see Channing Tatum's Gambit? Given that Tatum is an A-List actor, it seems unlikely he'd play a bit role in X-Men: Apocalypse. Could Fox be planning Gambit as a starring vehicle for Tatum, possibly for that unrevealed 2018 release date?
Don't Expect To See The X-Men In The Fantastic Four Reboot
Everyone wants a piece of that sweet interconnected universe pie. Marvel Studios has been building theirs since 2008, Sony is getting ready to experiment with Venom and Sinister Six for their Amazing Spider-Man series, and Fox holds both the rights to the X-Men as well as Fantastic Four. Next year brings The Fantastic Four to theaters, and many expect that the film will eventually lead the heroes towards a meet up with the X-Men in a big superhero goulash.
Could Wolverine Pop His Claws In X-Men: Apocalypse?
X-Men: Apocalypse would primarily focus on the First Class gang and be set in the 80's, the early claim announced. But it would also be a fairly epic film, and you can't do epic without Wolverine, can you? It seems like Apocalypse would be prepping the world for an X-film without Wolverine (the character has appeared in seven X-movies thus far), but we might not be done with Jackman yet.
X-Men Scavenger Hunt: Cinema Blend And TCL Are Giving Away A 50 Inch HDTV!
Cinema Blend is having a Scavenger Hunt in honor of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and if you enjoy large and shiny televisions, you should sit up and pay attention.
X-Men: Days Of Future Past Cast To Participate In Elaborate World Tour
Fox needs to stretch the X-Men brand, but it also helps if they have stars to do so. Which is why they’ll be recruiting all of the film’s cast members to travel the world and pop up in a number of towns. Which ones, however, remain to be determined.
Channing Tatum Confirms Talks To Play Gambit In An X-Men Movie
Gambit has been a fan-favorite of the X-books for years. He was portrayed on screen by box-office poison Taylor Kitsch in the standalone film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And while his take on the character wasn’t terrible, fans no doubt left that movie thinking that Gambit deserved better.
This New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Trailer Will Blow You Away
I must say that I absolutely love this trailer, and I imagine that it will absolutely sell anybody on the movie that’s not already sold. From the thumping chords of Led Zeppelin’s "Kashmir," to the almost heist-like set-up of the plot, this new preview gives us a much better idea of what X-Men: Days of Future Past will be like, and it looks incredible. I couldn’t be more excited that Bryan Singer is back making X-Men movies.
