With X-Men: Days of Future Past merging the all-star casts of both the original X-Men franchise and X-Men: First Class, many were surprised that the biggest scene-stealer was a brand new character, Evan Peters' Quicksilver. We reported earlier this month that the character may be utilized in a potential X-Men TV series, but now we have word that he will return in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Newsarama recently spoke with X-Men: Days of Future Past second unit director Brian Smrz, who revealed he will start storyboarding the film this year, while teasing that there will be another Quicksilver scene.
"They want me to start pretty soon, on the storyboarding and stuff. I'll be working on the next X-Men for the next month or so part-time, and by the end of the year it'll be full-time. Well, there will be another Quicksilver scene, which I'm looking forward to; that'll be fun. Other than that, »
After playing Bane in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, Tom Hardy continues to be in demand for superhero roles. We reported in June that Marvel was eyeing the actor to play Doctor Strange, and earlier this week he was mentioned as a candidate to play one of the characters in Warner Bros. Suicide Squad. Today we have a new report that claims 20th Century Fox is "courting" the actor to play the title villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.
There is still much we don't know about the story, except that it will be set in the 1980s and that it will close out the X-Men trilogy that includes 2011's X-Men: First Class and this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. We reported earlier this month that the story will focus on the budding relationship between Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), with shooting scheduled to begin next April in Montreal. »
The relationship between young mutants Mystique and the Beast was a major storyline in X-Men: First Class. However, this plot arc was dropped from X-Men: Days of future Past. For various reasons, the romance angle didn't fit into the last sequel. However, we may see more of the Beast & Mystique relationship in the next film.
Mystique and Hank were quite an item in X-Men: First Class but if you expected to see more of that relationship in X-Men: Days of future Past, you must have been disappointed. Director Bryan Singer and the writers couldn’t work the storyline into the time-travel plot arch of the sequel film.
That wasn’t always the case. While doing an interview with MTV about his new film Young Ones, Nicholas Hoult—who plays Hank McCoy/the Beast—revealed that there were originally some scenes in the earlier drafts of Days of Future Past which »

In addition to reintroducing younger versions of the mutants known as Beast and Mystique, X-Men: First Class also did its part to establish a new dynamic between the two characters. Bonding over the fact that they couldn't show their true faces in public, the two of them sparked a romantic relationship that wound up getting kind of interrupted by the Cuban Missile Crisis. Unfortunately, this connection didn't really get to be explored at all in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but that wasn't actually always the case. Speaking with MTV in promotion of his new film Young Ones, X-Men star Nicholas Hoult revealed that there were originally some scenes in Days of Future Past that further explored the relationship between Beast and Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique, but that they were ultimately cut due to pacing and continuity issues with the rest of the story. Explained the young actor, "There were »
In X-Men: First Class, the characters of Mystique and beast establish a firm friendship with hints of a more romantic relationship developing at some point. Of course at the end of that movie Mystique puts the kibosh on that by joining Magneto and his not-so-merry band of mutants, but most fans expected something of a rekindling in Bryan Singer's Days Of Future Past. During promotion for the film, some stills made their way online which clearly showed the two blue mutants sharing a few intimate moments -- but obviously we now know any such scenes must have wound up on the cutting room floor. Why? Actor Nicholas Hoult explains all to MTV. “There were another couple of scenes which got cut, because they didn’t work technically in terms of the geography of how the movie played out in the end. Why [Mystique and Beast] would be here — when the world is »
Almost 15 years ago, X-Men helped bring the superhero genre to life with a blockbuster adventure that showed comic book characters could bring in big crowds at the box office. After hit sequels X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, 20th Century Fox returned to the past with 2011's X-Men: First Class, which took the action back to the 1960s. While many thought the original trilogy characters' time was over, those many were quite wrong, with both the past and present coming together in the summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, now available on Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD.
I recently had the chance to speak with one of the original trilogy cast members Shawn Ashmore, who returns as Bobby "Iceman" Drake in director Bryan Singer's hit superhero adventure, which took in nearly $750 million worldwide during its theatrical run this summer. Take a look at our conversation below, »

Earlier this week, we heard a rumor that 20th Century Fox was looking to get into the superhero television game with a live-action X-Men series. The show is supposedly in “deep development” at the moment, and could be based on Peter David’s X-Factor comic book series, which featured a spin0ff team of mutants hired by the United States government.
Now, new rumors about the potential series have surfaced. According to Film Divider, the show will exist within the X-Men film universe and is “absolutely designed to permit crossovers” with the movies. As exciting as that is for fans, it presents certain problems for Fox, most notably involving who to cast in the show and which mutants to include. As such, a character who was a runaway hit in the films could very well give the series an immediate boost: Quicksilver.
Played by Evan Peters, Quicksilver was undoubtedly the »

By the time the credits role at the end of Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past, everything about the entire franchise has changed.

David Hayter, screenwriter on films such as X-Men and Watchmen, is stepping behind the camera to direct Wolves, a sh*tty looking werewolf movie starring Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) and Jason Momoa ("Game of Thrones"). Today the red band trailer for the upcoming October 16 VOD release has arrived and it looks like something that would have spawned a CW series, not a feature film. Popular high school student Cayden Richards (Till) wakes from a horrific nightmare, only to realize that he's living it... He is changing into something vicious, unpredictable and wild. Forced to hit the road after the brutal murder of his parents, Cayden tries to hunt down the truth of what he is. In the remote, mountain town of Lupine Ridge, he discovers others like him -- Including the beautiful Angelina (Merritt Patterson), a young woman caught between two ancient clans of "wolves".

Thomas Roach on how Deadpool will be integrated into the X-Men movie universe…
Simon Kinberg has announced that Deadpool will share the same cinematic universe as the X-Men, which is no surprise. The X-Men universe has been somewhat reset with X-Men: Days of Future Past and with a new Deadpool movie set for February 12th, 2016, fans are surely excited to see how he will fit into what has already be done at Fox.
Frankly, despite this being an unsurprising move, it may in fact be a mistake. As Deadpool is so different to the X-Men characters despite featuring prominently in some of the comic stories, it would make more sense to keep the character on his own.

According to multiple sources, 20th Century Fox is looking to get into the superhero TV game and are in the process of bringing the X-Men from the big screen to the small screen. Bleeding Cool first broke the news, claiming that Fox was currently in “deep development” on a live-action X-Men series.
X-Men: Days of Future Past producer Simon Kinberg once stated that “the serialized format of comic books is better suited for TV,” so the idea of Fox moving forward with a show focusing on the mutants comes as no real surprise. In fact, it was kind of inevitable, especially with both DC and Marvel having several shows currently on air or in active development.
Bleeding Cool’s report was followed up by one from IGN, who heard that the series would be based on Peter David’s X-Factor run, which ran in the 1990s and followed a group »

The viral site M-Undergroud.com is set to debut some new content tomorrow, but Cinemablend have gotten their hands on the following images a little early. I'm sure you all remember the somewhat shocking scene from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past in which Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) discovers what became of some of her friends after Bollivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) was finished experimenting on them. Well, below you can see some pics that are much more graphic than the ones glimpsed in that folder. We've posted the Angel Salvadore (Zoe Kravitz) ones for you here, but you can see the really disturbing ones at the link below them.

For better or for worse, 20th Century Fox’s X-Men movies have been the one mainstay in the comic book movie industry over the last fifteen years. While they have come under heavy criticism for taking liberties with certain characters and source material, several rank as some of the finest CBMs ever made – impressing through underlying themes of oppression and equality. Indeed, many cite Bryan Singer’s 2000 hit X-Men as the start of the current ‘Age Of Superheroes’. Finding the right blend between dark and campy, the first movie was a hit with kids and adults alike. Since then, the franchise has been plagued by inconsistency. However, the last few years have seen a rejuvenation of the series, thanks to the likes of X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past - with the much anticipated X-Men; Apocalypse and Deadpool movies on their way in 2016. Anyway, without further ado, »

Increasingly, studios want you to stream or buy your own digital copy of feature films and to entice you, that edition is being made weeks prior to the physical disc being available for purchase. In an effort to direct viewer buying and viewing habits, studios are also shifting review copies from disc to high definition download. My first encounter with this brave new world, ironically enough, comes with 20th Century Home Entertainment’s current release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sprawling, epic film from May. The biggest drawback is making certain you have enough hard disc storage for the mammoth file and a set-up that allows you to watch on a huge screen. Lacking that, I watched the film on my 24” external monitor and while the image was crisp and the audio clear enough (although maybe I need to upgrade my speakers); it needs a bigger screen to properly appreciate. »
