  2. We’re Getting a “Rogue Cut” Of X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2015

    "Hey, how much money do you think we can squeeze out of people?"

    After having 99% of her screentime unceremoniously chopped from X-Men: Days of Future Past, Anna Paquin's Rogue will finally get to take part in some futureverse shenanigans when her scenes are included in a special "Rogue Cut" of the film, set to come out in 2015.

  3. James McAvoy Hints at Professor Xavier’s Hair Loss In X-Men: Apocalypse

    It's okay, Charles, the '80s will do that to you.

    X-Men sticklers will tell you - Professor Xavier is as bald as a cueball. But when you're casting a leading man for your film about young, hip mutants, you couldn't possibly make him shave his head. No one finds that appealing. Nope. But as timelines converge it seems the creators of the franchise may be starting to fold to the pressure. Will James McAvoy start losing those locks in X-Men: Apocalypse?

  5. Days of Future Past Roundup: Rogue’s Deleted Scene and Wolverine’s Lead Role Explained, Famke Janssen Talks Female X-Men

    Mutatis Mutandis

    We already heard from Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg on why he did that thing he did with the ending. Now, thanks to a piece in Empire, we have in his own words why Wolverine stars in the film, instead of Kitty Pryde or someone else, and why Rogue's scene was cut. But first: Famke Janssen, why do you love the X-Men's female characters so much? Spoilers for Days of Future Past!

  7. X-Men: Days Of Future Past Writer On How The Film’s Ending Changes The Franchise

    Mutatis Mutandis

    With three hundred million dollars in the bank after its opening four day weekend, X-Men: Days of Future Past is now the best opening film in the franchise, a nice victory over the previous holder of that title, X-Men: The Last Stand. And speaking of Last Stand, screenwriter Simon Kinberg has been pretty open about how DofP's ending was deliberately designed to undo some of Last Stand's most reviled effects on X-Men movie continuity. Spoilers for the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past follow.

  9. X-Men Days of Future Past Writer Talks About Quicksilver’s Inclusion As It Relates To The Avengers

    Mutatis Mutandis

    During the hype for the film, many of our readers complained about X-Men Days of Future Past's Quicksilver. But having seen the film, I can tell you he was the best part. That's not to say The Avengers: Age of Ultron's version won't be cooler but listen to writer Simon Kinberg as he's asked to explain why the character was chosen for the film. Now, we don't know what was going on in Hollywood but Joss Whedon confirmed he'd be using both Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch on May 17 of last year, though it was hinted at on April 21. Bryan Singer made the casting announcement for X-Men's Quicksilver (Evan Peters) on May 23. He even made what could have passed for a dig at the Avengers sequel in his tweet, (Age of Ultron's Quicksilver - Aaron Taylor-Johnson - wasn't revealed until October.), and while I don't mean to imply they did it on purpose, it's hard to believe they hadn't heard rumblings about the character. Previously in X-Men

  10. Star Wars Writer Might Have Just Confirmed That New Movies Are Ditching the Expanded Universe

    May The Force Be With You

    Our knowledge of what the Star Wars sequel trilogy is going to look like is basically nil. It might involve Tatooine, but that's not confirmed. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher might be back, but we don't know if the contracts have been signed. We could be getting "a young black or mixed-race woman who may be a descendent of Jedi Knight Ben Kenobi"... or maybe not. In the absence of any concrete information about the story of Episodes VII-IX, fans have been speculating about what might not be included, ie whether Disney will airlock the rich Expanded Universe canon that's been established over decades of books, comics, video games, and other tie-in materials. Thrawn! The Jedi Academy! Mara Jade! Unfortunately—or not, your mileage may vary—it’s looking like the answer to that question is “Yes.”

  11. Quicksilver Is a Giant Doofball, Bryan Singer Teases New (Old) Mutants for X-Men: Apocalypse

    Mutatis Mutandis

    You see that? That's a new Quicksilver promo from X-Men: Days of Future Past. It's also the reason you've just been hit by an inexplicable urge to visit Hot Topic. Don't blame me. Blame Bryan Singer. Speaking of, he has some things to say about his Days of Future Past follow-up Apocalypse, specifically how it will relate to its comics inspiration and which long-absent mutants might be putting in an appearance. And producer Simon Kinberg answered some questions about Quicksilver in Days of Future Past, including that of whether he's still Magneto's who what now?

  12. The Naked Gun, Murder on the Orient Express Are Getting Remakes

    Oh Hollywood

    It might be because my brain's in Friday mode, but I'm having a tough time imagining two films that are more polar opposites than The Naked Gun and Murder on the Orient Express. One is a classic film veritably filled with cinematic legends bringing their Oscar-worthy talents to the table. And the other is based on an Agatha Christie novel. But today the two very different films have something in common: They're being run through Hollywood's remake machine.

  14. Disney Confirms Standalone Star Wars Films; How Long Before They Get to Boba Fett: The Movie? [UPDATE: Not Long]

    May The Force Be With You

    You know they will. A few months back we heard the rumor that The Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan and X-Men: First Class' Simon Kinberg would be writing standalone films separate from the Star Wars sequel trilogy. And now Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed it.

  15. Be Still My Beating Heart; Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg Might Be Writing Star Wars Spinoffs Instead of Episodes VIII and IX

    May The Force Be With You

    Hey, it's been like a whole week since we've had any real Star Wars news, hasn't it? Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, here's an interesting tidbit: You remember how it was reported that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg would probably be writing Episodes VIII and IX? And that LucasFilm hadn't confirmed it, but various reliable sources were treating it as a sure thing? Turns out it's not so sure after all. As it turns out, Kasdan and Kinberg are (probably) still writing Star Wars films... but they might be spinoffs focusing on secondary characters, not Episodes VIII and IX. Disney. Give me my Rogue Squadron movie. Or Wraith Squadron. That is also acceptable. Or both!

  16. Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg to Write Star Wars: Episodes VIII and IX?

    May The Force Be With You

    Oh, happy day! As you may have heard (from either us or the approximately 12 million other sites heavy on the Star Wars this month), screenwriter Michael Arndt was recently selected to write Star Wars: Episode VII. And now it's looking like we have writers for Episodes VIII and IX as well: Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg. Why is this news so awesome? Only because Kasdan wrote The Empire Strikes Back (the best of the original trilogy, in my view. Accept no substitutes) and Return of the Jedi, in addition to Raiders of the Lost Ark.
