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.

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 »

Wes Anderson parodies are like the cat videos of movie parodies. There are so many. The reason being that Anderson has such a distinct style in every facet of filmmaking – from shot composition, to tone, performance, music, production and costume design – his aesthetic is fairly easy to duplicate, at least on a superficial level.
That is, it’s easy to duplicate, but not easy to make entertaining. That takes more nuance and a very good idea, both of which filmmaker Patrick H Willems has. He’s made a video that asked a question no one else has addressed: What if Wes Anderson directed X-Men? The result is very clever and entertaining. Check out the Wes Anderson X-Men video below.
