Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Will Feature Anna Paquin in a “Cameo” Role as Rogue

When director Bryan Singer was done editing X-Men: Days of Future Past, Anna Paquin had been left on the cutting-room floor.  According to a new report, it now seems as if the mutant known as Rogue has managed to find some screentime in the mutant mash-up after all.  Although the new X film unites the casts of two separate runs of X-Men films, Paquin’s role – which was small to begin with considering all that star power on screen – initially ended up as an editing casualty a few months back.  However, the film’s final trailer included her name in the credits, and now a Fox rep confirms that she’ll indeed have a small part to play.  Hit the jump for more.

Marvel Crossover Alert: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Will Feature X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Clip After the Credits [Updated]

An unexpected Marvel crossover is happening, though it’s not the kind everyone’s been hoping for.  It has been confirmed that a clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past will be play after the credits roll on The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  This is not only weird because previews of upcoming movies usually come before the film and not after, but because X-Men and Spider-Man are owned by separate studios.  Yes, they’re both Marvel comics properties, but Fox retains the rights to all X-Men characters while Sony is in control of all things Spidey.  This has been the principal hurdle preventing possible crossovers between the Spider-Man/X-Men/Avengers universes, since the practicality of any “team-up” film would necessitate a split of profits between major studios.

Hit the jump for more on this odd move, and what it could mean for the future. [Update: A full explanation regarding why Sony agreed to promote Fox's Days of Future Past for free has surfaced.  Details after the jump.]

Two New Featurettes for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Starring Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence

Following yesterday’s final trailer, two new X-Men: Days of Future Past featurettes have been released.  These featurettes go into the making of two specific scenes.  One featurette focuses on a last-minute addition to the movie where director Bryan Singer felt there needed to be a scene where Magneto (Michael Fassbender) retrieves his helmet, and the other featurette looks at the task of outfitting extras with custom-made 1973 outfits.  They’re both interesting featurettes because they show aspects of filmmaking that some people might not think about.

20th Century Fox has released a final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer for director Bryan Singer’s superhero “inbetweenquel,” and man does it have everything you could ask for in a mutant-mashup movie.  We get way more setup – along with a look at just how extensive and vital a role Wolverine plays in the plot – with plenty of superpowers on display, promising an action-packed payoff.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The trailer does a great job at summing up the premise, which highlights the caper aspect of the plot.  Its only downside is the poor choice of music; even Quicksilver looks good here!

20th Century Fox released a new clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  This clip gives us a look at the advanced sentinels, but what’s really striking is how director Bryan Singer is using the mutant powers to create some exciting new set pieces.  It’s particularly cool to see Blink’s portal ability and watch Iceman finally ride an ice trail.

A Look at Future Marvel Comics Adaptations by 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, and Marvel Studios

I think we can safely say that we are living in a golden age … a golden age of comic book movies.  From follow-ups to the Avengers franchise, to a newly rebooted Spider-Man series, to past and present X-Men uniting to fight giant robots, who would have thought we’d ever see any of this during the days when we were lucky to get a Blade movie once in a blue moon? Though with this glut of costumed heroes hitting the silver screen, it’s sometimes hard to keep straight what is rumor and what is fact.  Seems like the perfect time to walk through what has been confirmed and what is still rumor in the world of Marvel’s mutants, gods, and charismatic billionaires in iron suits.

Hit the jump for an overview of the future Marvel comics adaptations—from Marvel Studios, Sony Pictures, and 20th Century Fox—that we have on tap for the coming years.

Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg Talk X-MEN: APOCALYPSE; Will DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Alter the Timeline?

X-Men: Days of Future Past is still over a month away, but there’s no time to waste!  We already have to start talking about the sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, even though it doesn’t come out for over two years!  Director Bryan Singer and co-producer/co-writer Simon Kinberg spoke to EW about their plans for the film, and revealed that they will be taking elements from the 90s comic book series, Age of Apocalypse, but won’t strictly adhere to the alternate universe aspect of the story.  Kinberg explains that Apocalypse “won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with.”  Does that mean the time-travel in Days of Future Past might alter our reality to suit the needs of the new story, but not so drastically as to make the world unrecognizable?  Kinberg also goes on to say that “From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply.”  Disaster imagery?  In a superhero movie?  Ridiculous.  People would never go for that.

Quicksilver Runs on Walls in New X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Image; Simon Kinberg Reveals How the Character Fits into the Film

by     Posted One week ago

x-men-days-of-future-past-quicksilver

A final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past is due to arrive next week, but to hold us over, 20th Century Fox has released a new image that focuses on what has become the most talked-about character from the film: Quicksilver.  Evan Peters plays the fast-moving mutant in what amounts to a small supporting role, but reaction to the character’s look has thus far been less than enthusiastic—it doesn’t help that the first footage of Quicksilver in action came in a Carl’s Jr. commercial.  In this new X-Men: Days of Future Past image, we get a peek at Quicksilver’s abilities as he runs alongside a wall, sporting a Pink Floyd t-shirt and a pair of wind-resistant goggles.

Additionally, screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg recently spoke a bit about how Quicksilver fits into the overall story, teasing whether they will address the character’s true parentage in the film and talking about the dual usage of the character in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Hit the jump to check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past image and quotes from Kinberg.  The film opens May 23rd.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Lands on EW Cover; Sneak Peek at New Clip Revealed

X-Men: Days of Future Past is starting to reach The Amazing Spider-Man 2 levels of over-promotion.  The movie is still six weeks away, but Fox is still doing their teasers-for-teasers thing by releasing a sneak peek of a clip that will air during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.  Unsurprisingly, the clip features Jennifer Lawrence being badass, and while I have no complaints about that, this is a 10-second preview of a clip that will be 60 seconds at most.  Additionally, Entertainment Weekly has given Days of Future Past the cover to the magazine’s “Summer Movie Preview” issue because up until this point, EW had not covered any movie that’s coming out this summer.

Hit the jump to check out the sneak peek for the clip and the EW cover. The film stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing FanX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.

Watch: First Look at Evan Peters’ Quicksilver in Action in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Carl’s Jr. Commercial

Studios go to great lengths to ensure that the first time audiences get a glimpse of highly anticipated characters, it’s presented in the best way possible. With the increasing frequency of set photos and videos, it’s becoming nearly impossible to keep things under wraps for long, and studios now have to unveil characters in full costume earlier in order to avoid having the character’s first introduction be without proper lighting or effects.  Much has been made of the flashy Quicksilver costume in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past gleaned in the debut images, but many have been trying to hold judgment until seeing the character in the context of the film.  Well, that’s now been tainted by a Carl’s Jr. commercial.

Yes, our first introduction to Quicksilver (played by Evan Peters) in action is in a commercial for a bacon egg and cheese biscuit, in which the character uses his mutant quickness to gulp down Minute Maid and catch falling bacon.  The results are hilariously terrible, and a little sad.  Hit the jump to take a look. 

New Posters for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Feature Colossus, Blink, Iceman, and Kitty Pryde

20th Century Fox has released a pair of new character posters for X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  These posters feature characters from the “future” part of title—Colossus (Daniel Cudmore), Blink (Bingbing Fan), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), and Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page).  I assume these characters will be cameos except for Kitty, whose power allows Wolverine’s mind to travel back to this 1973 body.

TOP 5: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, First Trailer for LUCY, 22 JUMP STREET Set Visit, THE EXPENDABLES 3 Teaser, Our Most Anticipated Movies

by     Posted 12 days ago

Given the near universal praise it has received, I doubt that one more voice in its corner will persuade you to check out Captain America: The Winter Soldier this weekend if you weren’t already planning on it (especially when that “one voice” belongs to yours truly). Still yet, that fact won’t prevent me from gushing about it in these next few sentences. The Winter Soldier is fantastic. The action, humor, performances, and storytelling are all on point and work seamlessly together to create what is instantly one of my favorite Marvel movies and, more impressively, a really good film in general. It joins The Avengers on the short list of Marvel movies that I can see myself revisiting outside of canon just to enjoy again as a singular experience. While I believe a healthy dose of skepticism should be retained until you see it for yourself, I feel comfortable in saying that you can believe the hype surrounding The Winter Soldier.

In addition to me continuing to high-five the new Cap film, this week’s Top 5 also features the first trailer for director Luc Besson‘s Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, our 22 Jump Street set visit coverage, the first teaser trailer for The Expendables 3, and a look at our most anticipated films from April to June. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Fox has released eight new posters for X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  While not quite as bad as the most recent poster, these are still pretty awful.  If they’re not using the tired orange/blue color scheme, then the composition is haphazard, the titling is strange (I know Jackman’s name gets top billing, but it’s still weird to see it under Ian McKellen’s face), or the poster is just outright bizarre.  The strangest one is young Xavier reaching out to touch Storm’s face.

New Images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Provide another Look at Beast and Quicksilver

On our recent “Most-Anticipated” article, X-Men: Days of Future Past landed on all three lists.  While I understand why some people are skeptical, I think all of the right elements are in place for a great superhero movie.  That’s why I don’t mind reporting on X-Men stories (even when it’s those blasted trailer teasers).  Today, two new images from the movie along with a magazine cover have been released online.  The magazine cover (for Premiere) is kind of silly since it looks like Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is about to stab young Xavier (James McAvoy) in the neck.  But it’s not even half as silly as Quicksilver’s (Evan Peters) costume.  I can’t get over how awful that thing looks.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing FanX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.
