Well, the past seven days may just have been the busiest week of the year in terms of superhero news, with several huge stories dropping throughout the week, and the biggest surprise of all?

We've got a lot to get through this week, but we'll start things off with our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man...
So, things have been almost »

When Zack Snyder cast Henry Cavill as the lead in Man of Steel, it wasn't the British actor's first brush with Superman. Back in 2004, Cavill was cast as the iconic superhero in Superman: Flyby, a planned reboot from director McG (Charlie's Angels) and screenwriter J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Into Darkness), which ultimately fell apart when Bryan Singer came on board and cast Brandon Routh in 2006's Superman Returns. And, thanks to ThinkMcFlyThink, we have a glimpse of Cavill in the red-and-blue from his 2004 screen test for Flyby...
Superman: Flyby was intended as an origin tale that would have radically altered the traditional Superman story, with Kal-El being sent to Earth as an infant during a Civil War on Krypton and eventually coming to battle his evil cousin Ty-Zor and his three Kryptonian cronies, but only after being killed in action and subsequently resurrected. Other actors said to have been considered »

So now we know: Bryan Singer plans to bring fan favourite villain Apocalypse to his sequel to X-Men: Days Of Future Past. The director’s lone, teaser tweet has set the internet tongues wagging, with speculation rife that he could be about to officially bring the iconic Age Of Apocalypse event to the big screen, further complicating the already complex timeline that was reinvented (sort of) with First Class.
Age Of Apocalypse is about as big an event that could happen for X-Men (aside from their involvement in the wider Marvel Civil War arc) with Charles Xavier killed, Magneto turned away from the dark side, and made an advocate of co-existence, and of course, the attack and ultimate triumph of Apocalypse, the immortal mutant alien who takes the opportunity to take over the world for mutantkind.
The decision to go with Apocalypse as the next major event could mean that »

(Cbr) If there’s one thing the X-Men films have been holding back on, it’s exploiting their source material’s wealth of villains. Now, based on a cryptic tweet from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer, it looks like the most imposing bad guy in X-Men history will finally make the leap to the silver screen. 2016 will possibly see "X-Men: Apocalypse" storming into movie theaters. When you have a villain who is big enough to warrant his name in the title, there have to be a lot of stories worthy of a film adaptation. Here are five classic X-Men stories featuring »

According to Firstshowing.net, X-Men: Days of Future Past is the beginning of a multi-picture time travel epic and will lead into the newly announced X-Men: Apocalypse, and possibly a Fantastic Four Cross-Over.
The X-Men are fighting back! Marvel’s Fox-owned characters may be poised to give the Disney-owned heroes serious competition, with a multi-film story arc, featuring time-travel, the villain Apocalypse and possibly even the Fantastic Four.
A story from Firstshowing.net claims they have an inside source who’s seen Day of Future Past and is privy to future plans for the X-Franchise. Don’t read any further if you don’t want to know the details.
In the post-credit sequence for X-Men: Days of future Past, we see Magneto (Played byMichael Fassbender) hiding out like a hermit in the desert, on the run from the government who wants to bring him in, dead or alive. »

Next year Hugh Jackman will make his seventh appearance as the Wolverine in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, while yesterday's news about X-Men: Apocalypse coming in 2016 means there are three further potential outings for Logan on the horizon, including the X-Force movie from Jeff Wadlow and James Mangold's sequel to The Wolverine. However, despite the fact that Jackman is collaborating with Mangold on development of Wolverine's third solo outing, the actor has revealed that he's undecided over reprising the role of the fan favourite mutant and may be ready to hang up the claws.
"I don’t know whether or not I will do this next movie," Jackman tells Vanity Fair. "I am really proud of this movie and I am excited to develop something with Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That’s exciting, to see what we »

Wouldn’t this be a fanboy and fangirl’s dream?
First of all, let me just say that I’m fully aware that this is very unlikely to ever happen, but it’s fun to imagine and it’s good to hope!
As unlikely as it is, Hugh Jackman and Andrew Garfield have both said they want it to happen – stating that they’d be more than open to the ideas of their Wolverine and Spider-Man characters respectively joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Avengers roster.
It would be a tough task for any writer, director or producer to put a movie of this scale together – even if, by some miracle, the respective studios of Marvel/Disney, Fox and Sony were to pull together to make it happen – which further hampers its plausibility.
Many people will say that the continuities should never merge anyway, because it would raise questions like »

London, Dec 7: New X-Men film 'Apocalypse', which will be the eighth film in the superhero series, is set to be released on 27 May 2016.
Bryan Singer, who directed the first two films in the franchise, hinted about the project on Twitter, which was then confirmed by Fox, the BBC reported.
This movie will focus on Apocalypse, an ancient Egyptian villain who appeared in the Marvel comics in 1986.
As of now, there are no indications on the plot of the film. (Ani) »

Over a year ago, when director Bryan Singer first confirmed that the X-Men: First Class followup would be based on the much beloved ’90s Days of Future Past storyline from Marvel Comics, the reveal painted an interesting and exciting future for the franchise. The concept of time travel has yet to be explored in the superhero movie genre, and for the X-Men specifically, which has had many films over the last 13 years, it’s a way to bring back everyone and rewrite history, right some wrongs.
Time travel gives storytellers the ultimate plot device to alter continuity, change and bring back characters, etc., but it also lets the X-Men movies do bigger and better things – including ...

Hugh Jackman says he loves playing Wolverine but that still doesn’t mean he is a guaranteed lock for future mutant films. He says a script will have to meet his expectations before he gets involved.
The days of future X-Films may not necessarily include Hugh Jackman. In a recent Vanity Fair interview where he was promoting the DVD release of The Wolverine, the 45-year-old actor was asked if his participation in the announced sequel to that film was a “Done deal.” If indicated it was not, and said that a commitment to doing anything beyond promotion for Days of Future Past is “way off”.
Jackman explained, “I don’t know whether or not I will do this next movie. I am really proud of this last movie and I am excited to develop something with Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That’s exciting, »

This came as quite a shock given that there had been no prior rumours that had lead us to believe this film was even in development. Next year’s X-men: Days Of Future Past reunites original X-men director Bryan Singer with the majority of the cast seen in the first film released all the way back in 2000. The reunion film was starting to look like it may be the last we see of some of the original characters in an epic swansong to one of the first superhero film franchises. However, it’s now looking more like the film is actually a two-parter of sorts and will connect directly to X-men: Apocalypse. The film is said to want »

What a busy few days we've had here at Flickering Myth in terms of comic book news. Firstly we had the news that Gal Gadot was playing Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman (read our reaction here) and then Thursday saw the debut of the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (read our reaction here). So it took us all by surprise that Bryan Singer announced via his Twitter that the Age of Apocalypse could be heading to the X-Men universe in 2016.
But, in a sea of comic book news, what did the Flickering Myth team make of this announcement?
The year is 1933 at the height of Prohibition. Dust storms rage in the Midwest – and the man who will become the Wolverine makes his living carrying whiskey across the border from Canada. That is, until he finds himself the accidental caretaker of a group of orphans who’ve been targeted by the mob. Now, the first “X-Man” must choose between the anonymous life he has chosen or stepping out into the spotlight to defend the innocent once more.
“Richard is a master of noir, and he brings that sensibility to Wolverine in his earlier, more formative years,” stated Editor Jeanine Schaefer. “He’s crafted a Logan who’s been hardened by a life of violence, but still holds out hope for peace… »
How do you top a movie like X-Men: Days of Future Past? That release will see the worlds of the past and present X-Men collide as the heroic mutants battle Bolivar Trask and his gigantic robotic Sentinels. It’s going to big, but even bigger will be the introduction of the villainous Apocalypse!
Fans have been desperate to see him on the big screen for years, but the character never seemed to fit in with the tone of Bryan Singer’s X-Men movies. Well, that all now looks set to change, and the announcement yesterday has comic book lovers counting down the days until the movie is released in 2016.
In this feature, we take a closer look at ten things that we would love to see have a presence in X-Men: Age of Apocalypse. As always, be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section below. »

Oliver Davis: I like to think I'm a rational human being. One who's seen enough superhero movie trailers to know that you can't judge these films on the promotional material alone. Some have a boring build, but I end up enjoying them (Captain America: The First Avenger »

It’s an exciting time to be part of the X-Men universe. After a much needed series reboot back in 2011 with X-Men: First Class, everyone’s favorite mutants are alive and kicking again and it looks like 20th Century Fox has some big plans for the franchise. We already know that director James Mangold is preparing a sequel to The Wolverine, and just yesterday it was revealed that Bryan Singer is going to be delivering X-Men: Apocalypse to us in 2016.
