Up until now, the X-Men: Days of Future Past version of Quicksilver has been relegated to still images. Even without knowing how he’d look in motion, fans have had plenty to say about the punk metallic look of the character. Now, his movements have been revealed thanks to commercial for fast food burger chain Carl’s Jr. It shows Quicksilver in action, which seems like very odd place to reveal the movement of a character whose design has generated such polarized responses. Check out the Quicksilver Carls Jr commercial below. Read More »

X-Men Apocalypse is more than just that other 2016 Marvel superhero movie. The Fox sequel to X-Men: First Class and this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has been quietly building momentum while DC and Marvel prepare for battle with their big films Batman vs. Superman and Captain America 3. X-Men: Apocalypse comes out a few weeks after those two, on May 27, 2016. Bryan Singer, Dan Harris, Michael Dougherty and Simon Kinberg are all currently working on breaking down the story, which will probably deal with the super-evil mutant of the title.

Last August I went to Montreal to visit the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past. While in Canada I had the chance to speak to many of the film’s principals, including director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg.

Below you’ll find his comments on three key points: shooting the character Quicksilver, which was accomplished in part through the use of a high-speed camera; the creation and ideas behind the Sentinels; and the use of time travel as a plot device. Read More »
