  1. Alternate Days of Future Past Concept Art Has Storm, Bishop, Groovy ‘70s Magneto… Jubilee?

    Mutatis Mutandis

    Concept Art World got their hands on some alternate designs by X-Men: Days of Future Past costume concept artist  Phillip Boutte Jr., and there’s a lot about these rejected versions of the X-duds to love. Not least is that some of them are worn by Jubilee, who of course didn't end up in the finished film. I wonder: At the point Bryan Singer cut Jubilee, like he would later cut Rogue, was Once Upon a Time's Jamie Chung—whose likeness is clearly on display here—already being mentioned for potential casting? Or does Boutte Jr. just really like Jamie Chung (same)? Either way, can we get Jamie Chung playing a superhero, please and thank you? And not the animated one she's playing in Big Hero 6. Though that's cool, too.

    Snikt

    Silly James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. Everyone knows that when our benevolent alien overlords come down from the sky and take Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen away to have neverending space adventures together (because those two will never die), Robert Downey Jr and Mark Ruffalo are next in line for the celebrity soulmate BFFs title. Nice try, though. (via: Pajiba) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Mutatis Mutandis

    From the guy who brought you every Easter Egg in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, here's a video recap of the in-jokes and references in Logan and Raven's Excellent Adventure. Just one day I want an Easter egg to be an actual Easter egg. Just a person in a giant egg costume walking around in the background of a crowd scene. No explanation.

  8. 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. Hollywood is a Jerk: Kitty Pryde, Sexism, and Days of Future Past

    Essay

    I don’t like time travel. Excusing the excuse that it’s a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff, most Hollywood time travel consists of altering linear timelines to forestall mistakes, death, and apocalyptic disaster. At its best, it comes across as the screenwriting equivalent of a neat parlor trick, at its worst it’s sloppy, plot-hole-filled writing that has to use sci-fi mumbo-jumbo to cover its own tracks. But the latest time-jumping saga to hit the silver screen -- X-Men: Days of Future Past -- made pretty good on it promises with one major wrinkle; the film itself is an alternative timeline to what happened in the comics, for a not-so-mysterious reason. That reason is Ms. Shadowcat herself, Kitty Pryde, who, instead of being the time-traveling agent of change, acts as the supercharged battery that sends Wolverine back. Though we’ll get into the details below, a canon shift of this magnitude in book-to-film adaptation would normally inspire internet outrage, essays about the changes, and hot debate between fans. Instead, it seems that only a corner of the fan world—the one directly concerned with issues of female representation—has spoken up in opposition. Considering the canonical fanaticism that followed the introduction of a female character to The Hobbit films, you might think it strange to see such a dearth of dissent. Unless what we’re really looking at is the same thing in reverse, another classic case of – everyone say it with me now -- Hollywood sexism.

  10. Terrible, Weird X-Men Coloring Book Inspires Awesome, Weird X-Men Art

    Mutatis Mutandis

    If I had to describe the art of Brandon Bird (and I do sometimes, whenever I show friends my copy of his art book/coloring book), it would be deliberately arranged combinations of low brow pop culture, mass produced art, and surrealism. His art show "X-Mans," in which he invited nearly two dozen friends to create work based on pages from a poorly drawn and produced, actual X-Men coloring book, is no different.
