Everything's better with a baby wolverine.
Chris Claremont’s stories defined the X-Men, and the impact of Days of Future Past continues to echo throughout Marvel continuity to this day. So how did so much cool stuff come out of something so nonsensical?Read More
Anna Paquin filmed a lot of scenes as Rogue for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and although they made it into the "Rogue Cut" special edition, they're not in the final version -- and Paquin doesn't mind. She's also a pretty good sport about the fact that she won't be appearing in Channing Tatum's Gambit, either.Read More

Ian McKellen Not in X-Men: Apocalypse, But Anna Paquin’s Rogue IS in Blu-Ray of X-Men: Days of Future Past!
While promoting his latest film, Mr. Holmes, which we're very excited about, Ian McKellen talks about the pressures of taking on iconic characters, the way he has with everyone from Gandalf, to Hamlet, and of course, to Magneto in the X-Men films. However, when asked about whether the rumors of him appearing as Magneto in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse are true, he denies the rumors.Read More

Being part of a marginalized group and looking for representation in pop culture can be both entertaining and incredibly frustrating. Because there are so few explicit examples, there’s lots of fun to be had devising headcanons--that is, one’s own interpretation of content never made explicit in the text—but as much fun as that can be, it can be disheartening thinking about all your favorite (in my case) autistic characters and then realizing 90% of them were never confirmed as such.Read More
And by baby I mean teenager, and by teenager, I mean I am old.
Meet Kodi Smit-McPhee. Or perhaps you've met him before, as the lead roles ParaNorman, or Let Me In, the American Let The Right One In.Read More
Still needs more Kitty.
I really didn't like X-Men: Days of Future Past, so you can bet I've been dying to see the How It Should Have Ended version. It doesn't quite go in the direction I expected but it's certainly an improvement.Read More
Also, the Fables movie is still a thing that is happening.
David Heyman's Paddington is making hay
men at the box office, and so he's doing the usual press thing, which means he's being asked about his other projects, i.e., two geek properties that have women writing their screenplays, so, up our alley.
While I was on an insane high from hearing Sophie Turner and Saoirse Ronan might play young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, I have found a new low in hearing we likely won't be seeing Sir Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen at all.Read More
Experience the prequel sequel that made the worst X-Men movie irrelevant!
Did you spend all of Days of Future Past feeling like you'd seen that movie before? You did. It was called Terminator 2 and it was rad. Honest Trailers has more mind-blowing revelations for you in their latest video.Read More

TL; DR: Sorcery.
In need of some mid-afternoon goosebumps? Academy-Award winning production studio Digital Domain has released a new video showing nine minutes of visual effects magic from Days of Future Past, and dang it's mindboggling.Read More
"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.Read More
At least try to look surprised? For me?
Today in unsurprising news: Deadline is reporting that Bryan Singer has just closed a deal with Fox and will be returning to the franchise for X-Men: Apocalypse.Read More
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?Read More
