Super Hero Double Down: Mystique Character Trailer for ‘X-Men First Class’; ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Set Photo Reveals Lazarus Pit
Saturday salutations super hero supporters. In Nerd Bastards never ending quest for truth justice and some other things, we have two bits of super movie news for you to speculate and salivate (I seem to like using alliteration today. Weird.)
The other day we saw character trailers from Matthew Vaughn‘s X-Men: First Class for Beast, Havok and Banshee, but dammit, “where da white woman at”? Bah! I guess will settle for someone blue.
Here’s an all to brief character trailer for the shape shifting Mystique, who is played by Jennifer Lawrence. It features a bizarre kiddie mutant porn scene, followed by some teenage doe eyed love scenes with Beast and then finishes up with a good character defining moment with Michael Fassbender (Magneto).
Sadly, with the main story being about Charles Xavier and Magneto’s relationship, and with there being so many other characters at play, I think whats shown here is the extent of Mystique’s scenes. I certainly hope not. I’d like to see her character be a bit more defined than Rebecca Romijn’s portrayal in the 3 other X flicks. If not the least, I want to have more scenes so that I can look upon her with devious intentions. Jenifer Lawrence is HAWT.
X-Men: First Class directed by Matthew Vaughn, opens on June 3. It also stars James McAvoy, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Till, Edi Gathegi, Jason Flemyng, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily, and Zoe Kravitz.
DARK KNIGHT RISES SET PHOTO LEAKS POSSIBLE SUPER NATURAL ELEMENT
So far, in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has kept clear of any superpowers or mystical/magical elements. Then why da fuck was there a shot taken of a pool of Ecto-Cooler (Side Note: Hi-Ci Ecto Cooler was a tasty beverage. They never should have taken it off the market) taken from the first official day of filming from the set in Jodhpur, India? Now, it’s either a green screen of sorts, or it’s the mother fucking Lazarus pit. Ya know, the one in the comics that has rejuvenatory properties and brings fanatical terrorist Ra’s al Ghul back from the brink of death?
If you remember, Liam Neeson played Ra’s al Ghul in Batman Begins. At the end of the flick Mr. Ghul took a train ride to boom town and supposedly crashed and burned to death. Did he die? Obviously not, because according to this set pic, we’re gonna see the resurrection of the goatee toting bastard. Besides, in addition to the green lava pit, Josh Pence, who’ll be portraying a young Ra’s al Ghul was reportedly also on the same set.
Lazarus Pit or not, al Ghul will certainly be featured in the scenes in India.
