One of the young mutants included in X-Men: Apocalypse.s gigantic cast is Warren Worthington III, a.k.a. Angel, played by Ben Hardy. Last seen in a minor capacity in 2006.s X-Men: The Last Stand, it.s been reported that this new version we.ll see is "not very nice." This has prompted speculation about whether he will become Archangel, and after months of the cast and crew playing coy with fans, it.s been confirmed, Warren will indeed rock the moniker in the 2016 blockbuster. On Thursday, director Bryan Singer posted this image of himself on Instagram having some fund behind the scenes. The picture may look Angel-y a first, but if you read the caption, you.ll see the hashtag #archangel. Singer.s air guitar instrument also looks like it could be one of Archangel.s metallic feather blades, though I.m just spitballing here. Check it out. »
Famke Janssen is going from battling the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants to The Keating Five. E! News has confirmed the X-Men star has joined the cast of How to Get Away With Murder, something her X-Men character, Jean Grey, knows a thing or two about if you watched X-Men: The Last Stand. Details on her character are being kept under wraps, but TVLine reports she'll play a revered defense attorney. Something tells us she'll be squaring off against Viola Davis' Annalise Keating at some point. Every guest star needs to go up against Annalise at some point. Look for Janssen to first pop up in the season two premiere. Janssen's other TV rolls include Netflix's Hemlock Grove, Nip/Tuck and Ally McBeal. On »
The latest issue of Empire is being quite generous with new photos. Yesterday, we got to see 8 never-before-seen images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we get a sneak peek at another highly anticipated superhero movie hitting in 2016. The magazine has debuted three new photos from X-Men: Apocalypse. Plus a high-res version of a still we've seen before that has caused some controversy.
So, it's safe to say that, a few weeks removed from Comic-Con, the look of X-Men: Apocalypse's main villain has not sat well with fans. Oscar Isaac plays the world's first known Mutant, an evil force awakened from his Egyptian tomb who goes on a quest to collect his four horsemen. In this latest high-res still, we get the same select moment that we previously saw. Oscar Isaac is flanked by Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), who both look great. Yet, he »
Big-budget movies go into production without a completed script with some frequency, so it was notable when the team behind the “Transformers” film franchise assembled a "think tank" to hash out a plan for the future of the series. “Daredevil” season one showrunner Steven DeKnight was in this think tank, joined by “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman, Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari (“Ant-Man”), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (“Iron Man”), and Zak Penn (“X-Men: The Last Stand”) among others. Akiva Goldsman led the charge in charting the course for the future of the “Transformers” franchise. DeKnight was on hand at today’s TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour to talk about the first season of Netflix’s "Daredevil." When asked about the “Transformers” experience, DeKnight said that it was “wonderful” that movies are now taking a page from television. “It was a wonderful experience,” DeKnight enthused. “Akiva Goldsman was fantastic and Jeff Pinkner was phenomenal. »

During Comic-Con earlier this month, Hugh Jackman dropped by 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel, where he confirmed, once again, that Wolverine 3 will be the last time he plays the iconic Logan character. 20th Century Fox has set a March 3, 2017 release date, with James Mangold returning to the helm after directing 2013's The Wolverine. Earlier today, Hugh Jackman posted new teaser art for Wolverine 3, which features the actor holding up just one of his adamantium claws, with the hashtag #OneLastTime. The actor also reached out to fans, asking them to tell him what they want to see in Wolverine 3, in 50 words or less.
"My last time putting on the claws. What do you want to see happen? 50 words or less. I'll read as many as I can."
No story details have been given yet, but it was rumored that the beloved comic book story line Old Man Logan would be used for this superhero movie. »
In the midst of shrinking, laser blasts and ants doing unusual tasks, Marvel.s Ant-Man gave audiences a very special visual effect within the opening minutes of the film: a de-aged Michael Douglas. When Ant-Man opens in 1989, fans watch as the younger Hank gets into an argument with the S.H.I.E.L.D. officials who tried to recreate his shrinking formula, and Douglas looks almost exactly as he truly did in the late .80s. Director Peyton Reed previously described this effect as "terrifying," and now the process of how they made the 70 year old Douglas look around 45 has been revealed. Trent Claus, a "visual cosmetics" specialist at Lola VFX, explained to Vulture how his company accomplished Ant-Man.s de-aging feat. Lola started their de-aging work with 2006.s X-Men: The Last Stand, but gained notoriety for their work on Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.s characters in 2008.s The »
Mendelsohn’s election was revealed Thursday as the WGA West shared its final list of candidates for the upcoming election, a month after announcing candidates selected by its nominating committee. New candidates are permitted to run via petition, but no new candidates have emerged.
Mendelsohn’s credits include producing “Secret Diary of an American Cheerleader” and writing “Air Bud.” He is also a current board member and will assume the secretary-treasurer post on Sept. 21, when the election concludes.
Jeff Westbrook also withdrew his name from the 17 previously announced candidates running for eight board seats with two-year terms. The ninth-place finisher in that contest will serve the remaining year of Mendelsohn’s term.

The opening scene of Marvel's Ant-Man features a scene from several decades earlier, where Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is seen meeting with Howard Stark (John Slattery) and Mitchell Carson (Martin Donovan) to resign from S.H.I.E.L.D. in the year 1989. This meeting helps set in motion the primary, present-day story, but those who have seen the superhero movie in theaters may still be scratching their heads over how young Michael Douglas looked in this scene. Vulture spoke with one of the men responsible for this "de-aging" process, Trent Claus, whose company Lola VFX specializes in "visual cosmetics" that can make any actor, "older, younger, thinner [or] fatter."
Lola VFX was put on the map from their work in David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where they "de-aged" Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett's characters. They also created the much skinnier version of Chris Evans' »
One of the most striking visual effects in Marvel's Ant-Man takes place at the very beginning of the movie, with Michael Douglas looking almost 30 years younger as Hank Pym. Given the veteran actor was actually 70 years old when he filmed the scene set in 1989, Marvel had recruited Lola VFX, the same company that shrunk Chris Evans' Steve Rogers on Captain America: The First Avenger and previously de-aged both Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellan years ago on X-Men: The Last Stand. Speaking with Vulture, Lola visual effects supervisor Trent Claus explained how the studio worked with Marvel to achieve the flawless cosmetic effect. "They asked for advice for what they could do when they were shooting that could aid us, which is very much appreciated," he said. "We put our two cents in, and they did everything we needed right from the start." Claus also revealed that Douglas' past »

Marvel's "Ant-Man" this week is filled with some pretty astonishing visual effects, but none are more incredible than the one that dominates the entire opening scene of the film - Michael Douglas' face.
Minor Spoilers Ahead
The opening two minutes of the film are set in the 1980s as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Triskelion headquarters are being constructed. Set in a well-lit concrete office within the building, Douglas' Hank Pym is engaged in a meeting with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), Howard Stark (John Slattery) and Mitchell Carson (Martin Donovan).
Douglas in the scene has been digitally de-aged to look pretty much like he did in Oliver Stone's "Wall Street". Though we've previously seen de-aging in the likes of "X-Men: The Last Stand," "Tron Legacy," "Benjamin Button" and the recent "Terminator Genisys," it was never 100% and looked either too cartoonish or flawed to be believable.
That's not true in this case, »

Along with the first teaser trailer, one of the many things revealed about X-Men: Apocalypse at Comic-Con this past weekend was that it will have quite a few bad guys. Main villain Apoclaypse, played by Oscar Isaac, has the mean power of persuasion, which he uses to lure in the likes of such iconic Mutants as Storm, Psylocke, Angel and Magneto. This core group will serve as his Four Horsemen, who have been played by many different characters in the comic books over the years. But Apoclaypse and his henchmen aren't the only evil forces looking to rule the world in this franchise sequel. It has been confirmed today that Josh Helman will return as the mutant-hating Major William Stryker.
Director Bryan Singer revealed the information himself, when he shared a new photo on instagram. It shows Josh Helman standing next to fellow Aussie actor Rose Byrne, who returns as Moira MacTaggert. »
"Who the [bleep] are you?" That's the first line out of Magneto when he first meets Apocalypse. "Come and see..." is his reply. It's unlikely that 20th Century Fox will release the Comic-Con footage for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, despite it leaking online. Instead, they've let Entertainment Weekly debut a new set of photos showing us a good look at Apocalypse as well as the rest of the cast. The mag also debuted a new cover, but it's Photoshopped so much it doesn't even look like Apocalypse anymore (refer to photos). Oscar Isaac plays the villain. We also can see: Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn (as Psylocke), Alexandra Shipp (as Storm), Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, James McAvoy + Evan Peters (as Quicksilver). Here's the new photos (+ cover shot) from Entertainment Weekly for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse: For more updates, follow Bryan Singer on Twitter @BryanSinger; plus the X-Men account @XMenMovies. »

The X-Men movies took comic books seriously, exploring themes of isolation and prejudice present in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Marvel creations. It's fair to say that without the X-Men movies there'd be no Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy.
To mark X-Men's birthday, Digital Spy dived back through all seven franchise instalments to present a (non-definitive) ranking:
7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
Oh, Fox. If this is how you try to make up for The Last Stand, we need to have a serious talk. Logan's origin story proves, at best, an unnecessary and forgettable outing that could have been so much more.
For all his hard work, Hugh Jackman couldn't elevate this film above its poor script, by-the-numbers storytelling and laughably bad CGI. Now »
Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool is the film we never thought we'd see. 20th Century Fox kept the X-Men spinoff in limbo for years, and after his less than auspicious on-screen debut (more on that below), things didn't look good for Marvel Comics' 'Merc with a Mouth'.
More fool us. And when the first trailer debuted at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, it was so well received that they played it twice.
Guess where I'm hiding the chimichanga, and win!

We live in hope, and until it arrives next year, here's everything we know about the former Green Lantern's comic book movie:
Deadpool will be released on February 12, 2016.
X-Men: Origins will be swept under the carpet
As we mentioned, part of the problem with bringing Deadpool to the big screen was the royal mess Fox made of his first appearance. »
Yesterday, fans who attended 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel got their first look at the Deadpool trailer. But fans who weren't at Sdcc didn't have to wait too long to see the footage, since it leaked online shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, whoever shot the video was far in the back of Hall H, and it doesn't exactly give us our best possible look at the scenes that were shown. Today, Instagram user Marcaces posted two brief clips from the footage, which give us our best look yet at the new Colossus, played by Andre Tricoteux.
As you can see in the clip, Colossus, who was previously played by Daniel Cudmore in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, doesn't quite get off on the right foot with Deadpool, as he literally smacks the Merc With the Mouth into a car. We also »
Meet En Sabah Nur. This weekend at Comic-Con 2015, director Bryan Singer debuted the first two minutes of raw footage in Hall H from the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse (which has only been filming for 5 weeks). While I wish that was out for everyone to see, in the meantime we have the first teaser poster for the movie, and it's all about Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac. The immortal supervillain from the comics series is known as the very first mutant, from thousands of years ago, hence all the symbols around the poster's edge. Just wait till you see what Isaac actually looks like in the film. For now take a look below. Here's the first teaser poster for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, as revealed by Singer on Instagram. X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who co-wrote the script with Michael Dougherty, »

Paramount tried a few approaches in the new Terminator reboot. But if a franchise hits the doldrums, how can a studio resurrect it?
Fingers are being crossed at Skydance and Paramount Pictures that the critical mauling handed out to Terminator: Genisys last week won't be reflected fully in the box office numbers. So far, the plan for a new trilogy of Terminator films is arguably just about alive, courtesy of a total gross for the new film of $131m worldwide. That's below expectations, but if it can eventually crawl its way to $400m, that's probably enough to move ahead with a Genisys sequel (it'd be more than the hugely-acclaimed Mad Max: Fury Road).
But even if a new film gets greenlit, it's clear that things have to change again. As many have pointed out, the consensus is now that there have been more bad-to-middling Terminator films than good ones, »
