I Have a Good Feeling About This: Star Wars: Episode VII Might Be Getting a Female Protagonist and a New Release Date

And with the confirmation that J.J. Abrams is directing Star Wars: Episode VII, the rumor mill begins spinning anew.

What’s the latest on the first installment in the sequel trilogy? Two things. One, it might be coming out later than 2015. And two: Rumors about a female protagonist just got a little more weight to them.

Yay to both things!

Mark Millar Kinda Sorta Says Sentinels Will Be In X-Men: Days Of Future Past [Please Be True]

One of my biggest disappointment with the X-Men movie franchise so far has been the lack of Sentinels, the mutant-hunting robots from the Marvel Universe. Sure, we got a quick shot of a Sentinel in X-Men: The Last Stand’s danger room sequence but it was merely a taste. Now there’s talk of the giants playing a big part in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Is it too good to be true? See for yourself.

Some Concerns About X-Men: First Class

This is not a review. If you’d like to know whether I recommend X-Men: First Class I can say simply: It was good. You should go see it. Matthew Vaughn manages to put together the cerebral, subtextual X-Men film that we’ve been missing since 2003. First Class moves through it’s paces swiftly, deftly, and though by the end of the film I wanted to take its musical composer aside and explain that not every use of mutant powers in the movie needs to have all the string and brass instruments in the orchestra thrown at it, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

But precisely because First Class was good, and because it played the allegorical stand in for prejudice-targeted-minorities the X-Men were meant to be like a fine aria, it is also important to point out the places where it fell short of the mark with actual, real, prejudice-targeted groups. (The rest of this post contains spoilers.)

Oh Hollywood

Brett Ratner Bashes Matthew Vaughn Over X-Men: First Class, Might Be Jealous

Looks like someone is a little bitterpants this morning. Brett Ratner, who directed the X-Men: The Last Stand, took to Twitter this morning to post a series of links comparing the box office numbers of his movie to those of Matthew Vaughn‘s just-opened X-Men: First Class. You may recall that Ratner’s movie, which he would love to remind us all was successful at the box office, got pretty awful reviews. Meanwhile, X-Men: First Class has been getting mostly positive reviews. (Right now, it has an 87% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. X-Men: The Last Stand boasts a comparatively sad 57%.) So, the moral of the story according to Brett Ratner: His craptastic movie is superior to that good movie because it made more money. So it shall be written. So it shall be done.
