Simon Kinberg says X-Men continuity has been completely reset, characters “could have been born earlier”

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you haven’t seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, spoilers follow…

So, 20th Century Fox made great strides in trying to fix some of the continuity issues with its X-Men franchise this year with the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with director Bryan Singer and writer-producer Simon Kinberg managing to find a way of bringing characters like Cyclops and Jean Grey back from the dead without having to reboot the franchise. But it seems they’re looking at going one step further, with Kinberg telling MTV that the new timeline could even see characters being born earlier.

“We sort of reset the clock on Days Of Future Past. And so a lot could have changed from that point in 1973 forward. Meaning, people could have been born earlier. The whole world changed after those events. So things that were represented in X1, X2 and X3 wouldn’t have »

The X-Men Universe Is Now Completely Reset, Says Producer

8 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While it was meant to clear up the continuity of the X-Men universe, many fans felt that X-Men: Days Of Future Past only confused the ongoing mythology even more. It seemed as if there were two universes, one dedicated to the exploits of the First Class gang in the past, and one gravitating towards Patrick Stewart's Professor X and his School Of Gifted Youngsters, a group we've grown to know pretty well over the years. But in a recent interview, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg suggests that you should probably forget all about that earlier timeline, because it's about to be irrelevant. MTV asked Simon Kinberg to reveal the Four Horseman Of The Apocalypse that would show up in X-Men: Apocalypse , acknowledging that we've already seen the most famous Horseman, Angel, in X-Men: The Last Stand. Kinberg wouldn't reveal if Angel was there, but he did confirm something that we've »

5 (Mostly) Surprising No-Shows at Sdcc 2014

28 July 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Quick as it came, the San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us.  While there was plenty of things shown at the event for fans to digest, there were some notable absences as well this year.  Rumors had been swirling for months about what would be showcased, and now that the event’s over I was surprised at some of the no-shows.  

I can’t honestly say I’m disappointed that these things below didn’t make an appearance at Sdcc.  We got some awesome stuff, and saw more on some projects than anyone expected (Mad Max, Batman v. Superman teaser, Godzilla 2).  Still, I can’t help but feel a little saddened, if only because I’m looking forward to some of these so much.  It’s important to take this article as such.  It’s not meant to be negative, nor do I feel like Sdcc was a “failure” (as »

Watch: Deadpool Test Footage Featuring Ryan Reynolds

28 July 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The R-rated superhero movie is kind of the Holy Grail nowadays, with the superhero genre at the height of its popularity.  As studios aim to find new ways of adapting the various comic book properties, fans are eager to see one of the big dogs—Marvel Studios, Warner Bros./DC, and 20th Century Fox—take a leap of faith and greenlight a more adult-geared adaptation.  One such property that was essentially made to break down this barrier is Deadpool, and Fox has been developing an adaptation of the comic for some time with Ryan Reynolds attached to star.  The key is finding the right budget to justify an R-rating, which excludes a hefty portion of the traditional target demo for comic book movies.  Tim Miller was most recently attached to direct, and he put together a reel of test footage to show executives what a Deadpool movie look like.  That footage has leaked online, »

Simon Kinberg On The New X-men Timeline; Channing Tatum Shows Off His Gambit Card Skills

26 July 2014 6:02 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the following video interview, X-Men: Apocalypse producer and writer Simon Kinberg is quizzed about Archangel being one of Apocalypse's Four Horsemen, and while he refuses to give too much away in regards to which characters they'll be using, he does explain the new timeline. As it turns out, X-Men: Days of Future Past changed things so much that some characters may have been born earlier, meaning we shouldn't put too much stock in anything which happened in the original trilogy as it's all up for grabs now! In the second interview, Channing Tatum talks about the lengths he's gone to to play Gambit in an X-Men movie, claiming to have even auditioned in costume. He then shows off his impressive card throwing skills, much to the pain of the reporter interviewing him... Movie Trailers - Celebrity News Movie Trailers - Celebrity News »

Simon Kinberg Talks X-Men: Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen

26 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comic-Con has so far seen some exciting features for Warner Bros.Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, but one film that’s been totally silent so far is Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Planned to follow this summer’s Days of Future Past, the superhero film will find members of the X-Men dealing with the incredibly powerful ancient mutant known as Apocalypse.

Screenwriter Simon Kinberg was pretty good about keeping Apocalypse off the menu at a panel for Disney Xd’s Star Wars Rebels, though one question about whether the Four Horsemen would be familiar faces or brand-new mutants did elicit a response. Kinberg noted that a lot is still up in the air for Apocalypse, and he even gave us insight into a late-game change for Days of Future Past:

26 July 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As promised by writer-producer Simon Kinberg, The Fantastic Four was absent from 20th Century Fox’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con yesterday. However, fans wanting to get a glimpse of Marvel’s First Family may be interested in an image that has arrived online through Justified Films on Twitter, which claims to show how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will appear as The Thing in the Josh Trank-directed reboot. Take a look via Cbm…

The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past's Deleted Juggernaut Scene Has Been Revealed

25 July 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Evan Peters. Quicksilver wound up being one of the best parts . if not the best part . of Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past, the reality is that he wasn.t actually always going to be in the movie. As we learned back in March, the original plan was to actually include a younger version of the unstoppable force known as Juggernaut. And given the two characters. very different power sets, it should be no surprise that the original Pentagon jail break sequence was originally going to be very, very different than the one that ended up in the final cut of the film. As part of the on-going San Diego Comic-Con, earlier this afternoon X-Men: Days of Future Past writer/producer Simon Kinberg participated in a panel solely focusing on the summer blockbuster . and during the conversation he revealed exactly how young Juggernaut was used in earlier »

Is This The Thing From Josh Trank's Fantastic Four Reboot?

25 July 2014 7:18 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Justified Films have posted an image that appears our first look at The Thing, Ben Grimm's rock-like transformed state, from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. This looks to be a on set sculpt that visual effects crews use for lighting references when they go back and insert the character digitally. Earlier today, 20th Century Fox surprisingly chose not to include any material from Trank's Fantastic Four at their Comic-Con panel, but instead we have this to chew on. And for me, this is probably better than anything they could've officially released. Enjoy! #leaked #FantasticFour #Marvel #MarvelSDCC #SDCC2014 #thething — Justified Films (@justifiedfilms) July 26, 2014 Fantastic Four directed by Josh Trank ("Chronicle") from a story and screenplay by Jeremy Slater and Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: Days of Future Past").

X-men: Apocalypse - More On 'Four Horsemen' From Simon Kinberg

25 July 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While many of us were incredibly excited to see Apocalpse bulding a giant pyramid in Egypt for the X-Men: Days of Future Past post credits scene, we were equally excited to see the 'Four Horsemen' being teased off in the distance. By the time X-Men: Apocalpse lands in theaters Apocalpse and his 'Four Horsemen' will look much different - something closer to the comic book versions. Screenwriter Simon Kinberg was asked during Comic-Con about the identities of Apocalpse's brainwashed, super-powered henchmen. Simon Kinber: I cannot answer your question, but they are ones we have seen before if you have read the comics. I cannot answer that. I know the answer to it, but we are still in the formal stages of figuring that out. But in truth, like everything you are developing a TV show or a movie, it could change. So I wouldn’t want to tell you one thing, »

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Comic-Con 2014 Preview & Clips

25 July 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm is waiting to bring Star Wars: Episode VII to the International Comic-Con until next year (closer to the film’s December 2015 release date), but are using the 2014 ‘Con to stir up interest in the animated series Star Wars Rebels – an upcoming Disney Xd show that will serve as the beginning chapter of the next generation of the canonical Star Wars universe.

The one-hour Rebels premiere was screened to a select few in San Diego last night, despite the animation being incomplete (read: not fully-rendered). Meanwhile, Rebels executive producers Dave Filoni (who also worked on the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and a few members of the show’s voice cast were present at yesterday’s Rebels Comic-Con panel, where they previewed exclusive footage from the series and offered new ...

"Star Wars: Rebels" Producers Talk Up The Series

25 July 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It'll be a while before you see formation of the Rebel Alliance in the upcoming animated series "Star Wars: Rebels". That is a deliberate choice said the show's producers during a panel at this year's San Diego Comic Con yesterday.

Set between Episodes III and IV, the show is expected to follow a tone much closer to that of the original trilogy than the prequels, and gives them "the opportunity to do some really new things that the movies haven't done before" says Simon Kinberg.

Dave Filoni says "when the Empire takes over there isn't just instantly a rebellion. Palpatine has total control and the Jedi are labeled as traitors - they're not a beacon of hope or justice. There's a time when the Empire has complete control of the galaxy, and people were tired of war so they just accepted it."

As a result this is almost like AMC's series "Turn, »

Hey!? What’S This?!: Easy there, Darth Interrobang. It’s a column on Star Wars news and rumors and therefore contains Spoilers and Speculation. If you’re not into those things, wait for the Fall when Star Wars: Rebels comes out. Otherwise…

This Week: So much stuff! X-wing! Rumors Of Hands! Rebels Clips!

Where to begin this week’s collection of Star Wars Material that will mostly just serve as me trying to catch up all the Star Wars stuff of note that hit the rumor-net since we last convened in the halls of S7AR Wars.

The X-wing and the Mouse

There was another Force For Change video released, this time featuring Fearless Leader Jj Abrams in front of an X-Wing. This X-Wing appears a bit worse for wear in the paint-job area, but also was without an astromech droid (like where R2-D2 was loaded into Luke »

Star Wars Rebels Debuts New Clips and Trailer at Comic-Con

25 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Last night marked the Star Wars Rebels presentation at the Gaslamp 15 during the San Diego Comic-Con during which several new clips and a new trailer debuted.  All three clips continue in the aesthetic that we’ve seen from the show so far.  So if you dug last week’s trailer, you’ll dig these.  I'm sort of surprised that this series seems to have much more narrative consistency than the prequels The show premieres on Disney Xd in the fall and also features the voices of Vanessa Marshall, David Oyelowo and Steven Jay Blum. If you’d like to catch what the show’s bringing to Comic-Con, the “Heroes of Stars Wars Rebels” panel will take place on Thursday, July 24th with executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg as well as Prinze Jr., Marshall, Blum, Gray and Tiya Sircar.  Hit the jump for the new Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con Clips. »

Two New Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con Clips Have Arrived

25 July 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Last night's Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con panel featuring guests Dave Filoni (Executive Producer), Simon Kinberg (Executive Producer), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Taylor Gray (Ezra), Steve Blum (Zeb) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine) debuted new clips from the upcoming series premiere.

The first of two Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con clips introduces the Inquisitor whom has tracked down Kanan and Ezra with the intention of terminating them both. We learn in this clip that the Inquisitor has Force powers, Ezra is quick on his feet, and Kanan is creative when it comes to protecting his Padawan's life.

The second clip follows Ezra as he tries to evade a squadron of Stormtroopers. Lucky for him Zeb comes to the rescue piloting a Tie Fighter, recalling the final act of Return of the Jedi when Chewbacca commands an At-st Walker with the help of his Ewok friends.

New Star Wars Rebels Trailer Released at Sdcc

24 July 2014 6:08 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Tonight featured the Star Wars Rebels panel at Sdcc 2014, in which members of the cast and crew were gathered together.  The panel offered up plenty of details, including a clip of the Inquisitor's spinning Lightsaber in action and even a really awesome new trailer for the show (different from what we saw earlier this week) that gives us a glimpse at some familiar characters!

A lot of the panel for Star Wars Rebels went into how the cast and crew worked together, designing the look of the show, inspiration for characters, etc.  While this is all very exciting to hear about (especially for big Star Wars fans like me), some of the coolest stuff came from the new footage on display, like this clip of the Inquisitor and his awesome Lightsaber in action: 

Other highlights from the panel include (from the official StarWars Liveblog):

Simon Kinberg on X-men: Apocalypse and Gambit

24 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

During an interview with Latino Review, X-Men screenwriter Simon Kinberg talked a little bit about what is coming for X-Men: Apocalypse, including some details about the Four Horsemen, as well as the status of Channing Tatum's Gambit.

The writer was asked if he sees the X-Men franchise as being a single narrative like Marvel Studios' different phases, and this was how he answered:

"We think about these X-Men movies as spread over – X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past to Apocalypse was imagined as a trilogy for us. It’s the Origin stories in some ways of Charles, Raven, Hank and Eric and we will be settling things up in Apocalypse that will be generating new stories. We look at it globally as to where to mutants fit into the world. That’s why we jump from the 60’s to the 70’s and now the 80’s. We really »
