Sometimes it’s hard to fathom that the X-Men franchise is solidly in its teenage years. It’s going to start driving and dating soon. The series is so significant to cinema history that it is responsible for launching the modern superhero film era. (Remember that this film came out only three years after Batman & Robin.) Without X-Men, there might not have been Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight series or The Avengers films. With Days of Future Past hitting the theaters, it’s time to look back to the year 2000 when superhero movies weren’t given $100m budgets and unlimited power automatically. Writer/director Bryan Singer had something to prove with X-Men, and with a limited budget and a production schedule shortened by five months, he succeeded. Five months into shooting X2: X-Men United, Singer recorded a commentary for his groundbreaking film for the X-Men 1.5 DVD, which is preserved throughout subsequent DVD and Blu-ray releases. Here »

We already know that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the brother and sister heroes from the Marvel universe, are allowed to appear in both the X-Men franchises and The Avengers assembly since Fox and Marvel Studios share the rights. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is playing Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but in X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's Evan Peters as the speedy hero. Now we have a first glimpse at him in the film in what seems to be an attempt to break Magneto (Michael Fassbender) out of some sort of prison. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Professor X (James McAvoy) are also in tow, and have walked into a snowy room. Is this some kind of mutant prison where they find a young Storm? Look! Here's the new first look photo from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past via Superhero Hype: And here's another photo with Nicholas Hoult »

As you’re all probably acutely aware, over the course of the next two years, we’re going to be treated to two incarnations of Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver. He will appear in X-Men Days of Future Past and then again in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. You also probably know that the two projects will have nothing to do with each other, since they’re being produced by different studios, so there’ll be no joint continuity. He’ll be played by different actors, and depicted in different ways.
It looks like both projects, though, want to hype their versions of Quicksilver, because Bryan Singer just released a (*cough* God Awful *cough*) first look at how his appearance, as played by Evan Peters, in DoFP. Have a look, at your own peril…
I…I just….I’m speechless. I know @elmayimbe is flipping out on twitter about how terrible he looks in this picture. »

Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch are two of a select handful of characters whose rights are held by both Marvel and one of the studios they licensed some of their characters to several years ago (in this instance, 20th Century Fox). The former will make his big screen debut in next year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, played by American Horror Story star Evan Peters.
Meanwhile, another version of the mutant speedster will be joined by his sister in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron next year with Kick-Ass’ Aaron Taylor-Johnson playing Pietro Maximoff alongside Godzilla’s Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda.
Today, the first image of Peters as Quicksilver has been released (via Cbm) and it’s fair to say that he bears little resemblance to his comic book counterpart. Also below are two new hi-res stills featuring Omar Sy as Bishop and another with Jennifer Lawrence as »

The casts of the original X-Men trilogy and 2011’s X-Men: First Class team up for May’s highly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past. “It’s not a reboot because there’s some of the same characters and same actors,” says Bryan Singer, who previously directed the 2000 original and 2003’s X2. “But it’s also not a conventional sequel—I call it an inbetweequel.”
Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is sent back to the 1970s by future Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) to stop a cataclysmic event. There, he must help young Xavier (James McAvoy) reunite with his foster sister, »

Last month, Bryan Singer revealed that he's set to follow up this year's X-Men: Days of Future Past with a quick return to the franchise in 2016 for an adaptation of the classic X-Men story arc 'Age of Apocalypse', and now the filmmaker has spoken about the project, revealing that he's yet to sign on to direct the sequel, although he's actively developing it now: “I’m co-writing the story and I’m producing it," Singer tells EW. "I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it."
And as for the rumours that X-Men: Days of Future Past will lead into X-Men: Apocalypse with a post-credits tease, Singer revealed that's still up in the air at present: "I’m still deciding that. Something that happens in this movie causes what’s going to happen in that movie. »

(Cbr) It's a big day for fans of Fox's "X-Men" films. Not only did Evan Jonigkeit reveal he would play a young "Toad" in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but Bryan Singer spoke with Entertainment Weekly to discuss sparse details on the recently-announced "X-Men: Apocalypse," due to hit theaters in 2016. While Singer made the initial announcement, he's currently only signed on as co-writer (alongside Simon Kinberg and "X2" writing duo Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty) and producer, though Singer's "desire would be to direct it." At the time of the interview, Singer was unsure as to whether "Days of Future »

(Cbr) "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has a massive cast, pulling actors from across the franchise's history to reclaim their roles with new faces entering the X-Universe for the first time. One of those new faces is "Girls" actor Evan Jonigkeit, but his character is anything but a new addition to the X-Men movie canon. In a recent interview with MTV, Jonigkeit revealed he plays a younger version of Toad in the film. Previously played by Ray Park, the classic member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants hasn't been seen in the franchise since Storm fried him with a lightning bolt »

There's a lot to keep up with when it comes up to our favorite mutants in the X-Men franchise, and when it comes to the who's who of directors who have helmed each movie, things don't get any easier.
Bryan Singer, the mastermind behind X-Men, X2: X-Men United, and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past knows the universe fairly well, so you think he'd be the first pick when it comes to directing 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. Reports have stated, however, that Mr. Singer hasn't signed on to direct the movie. He has noted that the movie will be exploring mutant origins however, and will be co-writing as well as producing the movie. Whether he'll be directing it has yet to be decided on.

Is Stan Lee the most universally loved man in the world? Probably. As the co-creator of many Marvel properties, including Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, he’s become a legend in the comic book industry. On top of that, with the huge popularity of films based on Marvel franchises, he’s become a movie legend too, appearing in nearly every film based off of a Marvel character or group.
These cameos range from small bit-parts in the background to center stage, limelight hogging moments. The range of roles he’s played border on the bizarre: a security guard; Hugh Hefner; himself; a hot dog salesman; a juror… Even at the age of 91, there’s little stopping him. So with that in mind, here’s a list of the ten best Stan Lee moments in Marvel films.

With the hype currently surrounding Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Sony’s The Amazing Spider-man 2, it’s easy to forget that there’s another high profile comic-book release on the horizon. It is of course Bryan Singer’s X-men: Days Of Future Past, which is set to hit theatres this May, and is reportedly the second biggest production 20th Century Fox have invested in after James Cameron’s Avatar!
By now I’m sure you will be aware that the film reunites the majority of the cast from the original X-men trilogy that ran from 2000 – 2006. The film’s bloated cast also includes many key players from 2011′s X-men: First Class in a time-travel adventure, with the majority of the action taking place in the 1970s . Now as we slowly get closer to that highly anticipated May release, we are starting to get a few more details »

Despite a report last month from Vulture stating the opposite, it would now appear that Bryan Singer hasn’t yet been confirmed as the director for X-Men: Apocalypse. In a chat with Entertainment Weekly, Singer revealed that he and Fox are only in talks:
“I’m co-writing the story and I’m producing it. I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.”
While no one knows for sure what the hold-up is, aside from Singer mentioning scheduling, another reason why he hasn’t signed on the dotted line could be that Fox wants to wait until it sees the returns from X-Men: Days of Future Past. As has been widely reported, the next X-Men flick is the second most expensive film Fox has ever produced, after Avatar. While they definitely have faith in Singer, »

Actor Evan Jonigkeit has revealed who he’ll be portraying in X-Men: Days of Future Past. While attending the premiere event of Lena Dunham’s Girls, Jonigkeit told MTV that he’ll play a younger version of Toad in the upcoming sequel.
Jonigkeit told MTV that he was a huge fan of the comic books, and was excited to play Toad, who hasn’t been seen since the original X-Men movie in 2000.
But Jonigkeit didn’t reveal everything. He didn’t say what his character would look like, but hinted that “the aesthetics of the character are much different.”
“It’s darker. I would say it’s a darker tone. »
