We have information regarding the rumors about a live action X-Men TV series that Fox have been toying with. Initially, the problems with Marvel Studios owning the rights to some of the characters had us believing it was what it was: a rumor. As the pragmatics behind putting a show into production based on characters who are tied in a political ‘who-owns-what’ battle seemed like too steep a hill to climb for the network. However, talks have been had from both sides and it is looking slightly more probable now. (more…)
James McAvoy Talks Xavier in ‘X-Men: DOFP’, Confirms He’ll Play the Role Again, Possibly in ‘Apocalypse’?
Last week Bryan Singer caused quite the stir when he announced via Twitter the next X-Men film would be X-Men: Apocalypse, expected in 2016. Since then a few more details have been released, like Singer confirming the First Class cast would return for Apocalypse. And it turns out James McAvoy learned of this no sooner than we did. (more…)
X-Men: First Class was a disgrace to comic continuity. There’s no question about that. However, if you disregard comic cannon, you’ll find the prequel offers a good deal of fun. Action, thrills, tough moral questions. It’s all there. In every sense it’s genuinely First Class (ba dum dum tish).
Anyway, if you liked the flick you’ll probably want to immerse yourself in the ‘making of’ experience. It’s all in the BluRay, but if you’re too cheap for that, we got you covered. Thanks to YouTube user jasminemaomao, we have the full behind the scenes ‘Making Of’ videos. It’s pretty interesting stuff, or so I’ve been told. To be honest, I didn’t listen to any of the 8 videos below. I only watched for the boobs. January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence and Jane Goldman (she penned the script). X-Men: FAP Class.
It seems that the rumor mill is in full gear for X-Men: First Class, the upcoming movie directed by Matthew Vaughan (who also directed Kick-Ass).
According to ComicBookMovie.com (via the SuperHeroHype forums), plenty of things have been revealed regarding characters and storylines.
However, just like the rumors I posted recently regarding Hawkeye being in Thor (read all about it here), it should be taken as speculation until we get concrete information.
That said, some of the tidbits below the jump are extremely interesting. Have a look and sound off in the comments to let us know what you think!
Another day, another X-Men: First Class casting rumor. Who might play Emma Frost?
