Anna Paquin's Rogue Plays Pivotal Role in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

30 minutes ago

After director Bryan Singer revealed in December that Anna Paquin will not be appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past, we reported yesterday that the actress actually does have a small cameo in the upcoming mutant sequel as Rogue. Today, we have a new report from Vulture that reveals the details of her scene, along with news that three other mutants from the original trilogy will also have cameos.

There will be spoilers included below, so read on at your own risk.

Apparently Rogue plays a pivotal part in the storyline, and it would have been impossible to cut her out altogether. Her scene is crucial to the plot of the movie, especially its climax, and it has been trimmed to make more room for the X-Men: First Class cast.

The story beings in a dystopian future where the remaining mutants are being hunted down by giant Sentinel robots. Charles »

2 hours ago

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is getting ready to start production on what may be the biggest film of his career, Batman Vs. Superman, which brings together these comic book icons on the big screen for the first time. During a new interview with Forbes, the filmmaker revealed when and why they first started discussing bringing these two superheroes together, and what it was like seeing the holy trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonderman together on set as the stand-ins first climbed into their costumes.

"After Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, "Maybe Batman?" Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne's house or something.

20 hours ago

Last we heard, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the series, has not yet been greenlit by Disney. That hasn't stopped producer Jerry Bruckheimer from claiming the sequel will be shooting before year's end. He also claims that Beverly Hills Cop 4 will be up and running by then as well.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was originally set to be released July 10, 2015, in a summer overcrowded with tentpole blockbusters. It was delayed so that directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim R&#248nning could revamp the script by Jeff Nathanson.

According to Jerry Bruckheimer,

"[I hope to] get that going by this fall or end of the year if everything lines up properly."

Johnny Depp is set to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, with Christoph Waltz interested in playing the villainous Captain Brand. Keith Richards may also reprise his role as Jack's father. »
