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. X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has said crossover ideas are definitely “in play,” though he stopped short of confirming plans outright. Read the Bryan Singer X-Men Fantastic Four comments after the jump. Read More »
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 »
One of the staples of pretty much every single Marvel film, whether they’re from Marvel Studios, 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures or Sony Pictures, is a cameo from Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee.
The man responsible for creating Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, X-Men and more has played a variety of characters in comic book films (though there’s a theory that they’re all the same character), and as long as he’s alive, you can bet he’ll appear in every future Marvel film at various studios as well.
In fact, Lee just confirmed a cameo for X-Men: Apocalypse, but it sounds like it’ll be something a little different than what we’re used to seeing the comic creator do on the big screen. Find out more about the Stan Lee X-Men Apocalypse cameo after the jump! Read More »

If you’re a dedicated X-Men cosplayer looking for a new way to make your Wolverine costume that much better, we’ve got some good news for you.
Considering there’s no fan hardcore enough to have adamantium claws put into their arm, the problem with a Wolverine costume is that you pretty much always have to have your claws drawn or don’t have them at all.
