2017 X-Men Movie

After 17 years and 10 movies, it makes perfect sense that the X-Men are finally heading to live-action television. It would be unfair to say that the cinematic potential for these characters have been exhausted (the possibilities are infinite and Logan looks great!), but X-Men: Apocalypse made it very clear that it’s time to shake things up and break away from the formula. A shift in mediums may be just what the professor ordered.

So I’m intrigued by the new X-Men TV show that Fox is working on at the moment and Bryan Singer, who helmed four of the X-Men movies and will direct the pilot, has started chatting about it.

X-Men TV series

UPDATE: Fox has announced that Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men, X2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X-Men: Apocalypse will helm the pilot.

FX’s upcoming Legion may not be the only X-Men-related show we’ll see in the near future. Fox has officially ordered a pilot for the X-Men television series from executive producer and Burn Notice creator, Matt Nix that was announced last year. Based on what Laura Shuler Donner has previously shared about Nix’s show, the story takes place in a world where people are well aware of mutants. Not only do they know they exist, most people hate them, as they typically do in the movies.

legion promos

A batch of new Legion promos have been released, meaning we get to see more of actor Dan Stevens looking bug-eyed, paranoid, and all-around awesome in FX’s upcoming series. The star of The Guest and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast remake is a considerable part of Legion‘s appeal. Yes, it’s run by Fargo creator Noah Hawley, which is reason enough to check out the series, but Stevens is one of those actors you want to keep an eye on. Since he continues to impress in a wide variety of roles, we’re excited to see him bring his versatility to FX’s new show.

Below, watch some new Legion promos.

Legion is a new show from FX that features ties to the X-Men universe, but more importantly, it’s the latest show from Fargo creator, Noah Hawley. The series stars Dan Stevens (The Guest) as David Haller, son of Professor Charles Xavier in the comics. Whether the series spends much time on their connection, we’ll have to wait and see, but Hawley has said before it’ll likely be acknowledged. Based on the footage we’ve seen so far, though, this series doesn’t need any obvious connections to the X-Men universe to get us interested.

Below, watch the Legion promos.

Rami Malek Freddie Mercury

The long-gestating Freddie Mercury biopic has seen plenty of talent come and go over the years. Sacha Baron Cohen spent a good amount of time developing a hard-R, warts-and-all biopic that ultimately led to creative disagreements between him and Queen guitarist Brian May, who even rejected the idea of David Fincher directing the biopic. Now, it looks like the project has may have nailed down Mr. Robot star Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, and Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse) may be directing.

Mr. Sinister in Wolverine 3

It’s only been four months since X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, but it feels like it’s been much longer. That might be a testament to just how forgettable of an X-Men sequel it was, even though I did find enough to enjoy in it to keep me from simply hating it. Now we’re being reminded of the film again as it’s now available on Digital HD and will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD on October 4th, and the release of the film on home video has provided us with confirmation of one particular detail in the forthcoming Wolverine 3.

The Marvel Comics villain Mr. Sinister has been confirmed to be a villain in Wolverine 3, which as we already know will mark Hugh Jackman‘s last time playing the adamantium-clad mutant. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Fox’s X-Men universe continues to branch out on the big screen, with this year’s Deadpool and the upcoming WolverineGambit, and New Mutants movies. But could it expand all the way to the small screen? According to Bryan Singer, FX’s upcoming series Legion isn’t just based on the X-Men comics — it’s “part of the X-Men universe” and could connect to upcoming films.  Read More »
