Mutants have always fought mutants in the X-Men comics and films, whether as a way to improve their stills, and therefore their chances for survival, or out of deep ideological disagreements. Mutants will definitely be pitted against one another in the film X-Men: Apocalypse, thanks to the efforts of the first mutant, Apocalypse, to gather a cadre of powerful mutants in order to fulfill whatever crazed plan is in his head.
Now Bryan Singer has shared a new Instagram post, one of many from the set of the film, in which Ben Hardy, who plays Angel, takes part (willingly or against his will) in a fight club in East Berlin in 1982. Check that out below, along with some speculation about what it means for the movie. (Slight possible spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse follow, but there’s nothing below that hasn’t been offically revealed.) Read More »

Back in January this year, X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart thought that neither he nor co-star Ian McKellen were going to be popping up in X-Men Apocalypse, with the focus on the 1983 versions of the mutants that were rebooted in X-Men: First Class and continued into X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Now a new set photo from director Bryan Singer teases that Stewart might be back in some capacity after all, with the actor seen on set during production. See the Patrick Stewart X-Men Apocalypse set photo after the jump! Read More »

For years fans have wondered if an X-Men / Fantastic Four crossover could happen. Now it sounds like the Fox folks have been wondering the same thing.

At Comic-Con in San Diego, fans got their first look at X-Men: Apocalypse with an early trailer put together just for fans who waited in line to get into Hall H. But the footage leaked online (which producer Hutch Parker says is not a marketing scheme), and millions have now seen the footage showing off Oscar Isaac as the film’s titular villain.
Since then, some official first look photos have surfaced online, and sadly the look of the aforementioned villain has been frustratingly compared to that of Ivan Ooze, the villain from the first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie. Once you see it, it cannot be unseen.
But we’re doing our best to march forward and hope for the best from the sequel. Thankfully, director Bryan Singer keeps teasing us with photos from behind the scenes, and his latest is a shot from the set of a destroyed Cairo, Egypt, which just so happens to be where the weather-controlling mutant Storm is from in the comics. Check out the X-Men Apocalypse Cairo set photo after the jump! Read More »
With Comic Con hitting this week we’ll learn a lot more about projects that are coming up in the next couple years, especially on the superhero front. But even before the big event begins, we’ve got a couple rumors about possible developments for two films we’ll be talking about over the next couple years. One is Doctor Strange, and the rumor isn’t entirely dismissible. The other concerns Fantastic Four 2, and seems more far-fetched. Read More »

Most people would agree X-Men Days of Future Past was a solid addition to the X-Men franchise. Even if they don’t, everyone agrees the Quicksilver scene was the highlight. The way director Bryan Singer used slow motion and camera effects to show how fast the character, played by Evan Peters, was truly memorable. Now it seems, he’s going to do it again.
On his Instagram, Singer tweeted an image of a bunch of actors on wires with the hashtag “#Quicksilver.” It seems everyone’s favorite speedster is gonna make a comeback in X-Men Apocalypse. See the X-men Apocalypse Quicksilver image and more below. Read More »

We’ve been hearing about an extended cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past since last fall. The longer edition of the film has been called the Rogue Cut, mostly because it gives the power-stealing mutant played by Anna Paquin some more screentime thanks to a subplot that originally ended up on the cutting room floor. We’ve heard details about this cut of the film being 17 minutes longer, and the home video release also having some new extras as well. Now Bryan Singer has made an official announcement with the X-Men: Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut release date and a tease of other changes in the film beyond the inclusion of more Rogue. Read More »
