7 X-Men Side Characters The Franchise Needs To Keep Using

4 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Just like in the comics, the X-Men movies feature diverse casts of mutants, both good and bad, trying to make their way in a world that doesn't understand them. That said, some have been represented more prominently than others. Wolverine, of course, has essentially served as the lead in every film so far other than X-Men: First Class, while the "First Class" trilogy has also focused on Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, and Beast in their younger years. This leaves a lot of side characters who don’t get as much attention, but certain opportunities sometimes present themselves for these folks to nab more screen time. Despite saying earlier this year that she won’t appear in Gambit, Anna Paquin recently admitted that she would be interested in reprising Rogue for a future movie. Let’s also not forget that Colossus will also play a »

X-Men: Apocalypse - James McAvoy on Professor X's hair loss

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




James McAvoy has been chatting about how Professor X will be losing his hair in X-Men: Apocalypse...

A mild and unsurprising spoiler for X-Men: Apocalpyse follows.

We know it's coming. Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Apocalpyse rounds off the story trilogy that began with X-Men: First Class, and that means that James McAvoy's Professor X is set to have less hair by the end of the next movie. No hair, in fact.

In the UK to promote Victor Frankenstein, which arrives in British cinemas this weekend, McAvoy was on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, and revealed just how the hair was going to go.

"He ends up going through something so horrible and physically painful that he literally half pulls his hair out, half it falls out. Maybe, or maybe not…", he said.

He then added that "I just shit myself because I know Fox »

How Professor X Will Lose His Hair In X-Men: Apocalypse

28 November 2015 9:35 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The quickest, most simple way to differentiate James McAvoy.s version of Charles Xavier from Patrick Stewart.s in Fox.s X-Men films has always been the lush mop of hair atop the former.s head, while the latter possessed the more iconic chrome dome that comic book fans know and love. As audiences have watched McAvoy.s Professor X grow and mature since 2011.s X-Men: First Class, they have all wondered when and how Xavier would lose his brown locks for the streamlined look. Now the actor says that X-Men: Apocalypse will provide those answers.   Appearing on The Graham Norton Show with Daniel Radcliffe to promote the new film Victor Frankenstein, McAvoy discussed Xavier.s hair loss when the topic shifted to the upcoming Apocalypse: He ends up going through something so horrible and physically painful that he literally half pulls his hair out/half it falls out.

James McAvoy details a ridiculous deleted scene from X-Men: First Class

20 November 2015 4:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with IGN to promote the release of his new film Victor Frankenstein, James McAvoy has detailed what would surely have been a rather horrendous scene from X-Men: First Class.

“There was actually a scene in X-Men: First Class where we come up against somebody so dumb that I can’t mind bend him,” states McAvoy. “We end up actually having to have a real deal fight with him, me and Magneto, because there’s no metal in the room either. We end up just having a fight with this guy who was seven foot six or something like that. And we kill him by shoving a bear’s head over his head. It was weird… We twisted it and broke his neck and I said something like, ‘I couldn’t bear that man.'”

McAvoy will be back as Xavier next year with the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, »

Singer Teases "X-Men: Apocalypse" Trailer

19 November 2015 6:08 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though everyone's chomping at the bit to see "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," the film's release will also boast some major trailer premieres such as first glimpses at both "X-Men: Apocalypse" and "Captain America: Civil War".

Earlier today, director Bryan Singer revealed he has almost finished cutting the first official trailer for "X-Men: Apocalypse" via an Instagram post showing a shot from the clip of James McAvoy's 'Professor X' using Cerebro and with blackened eyes.

Finishing up the first teaser. #xmen #xmenapocalypse

Meanwhile, speaking at the junket for "Victor Frankenstein," James McAvoy revealed an amusing deleted scene from "X-Men: First Class" in which his and Michael Fassbender's Professor X and Magneto get into a fight with an opponent whom they have to take down without their powers. It's an amusing tale best told by »

Singer Teases 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Trailer with Cerebro Photo

19 November 2015 2:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Simon Kinberg confirmed that the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be attached to prints of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, although it still isn't known if the footage will be released online before then. Earlier today, director Bryan Singer sent out a new photo from his Instagram page, offering a new look at James McAvoy's Professor X, while teasing that he has almost finished work on the trailer. The image features Professor X wearing the iconic Cerebro helmet, with an unidentified character standing behind him.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened »

X-Men: First Class Had To Drop An Incredible Fight Scene Featuring Magneto And Professor X

19 November 2015 10:08 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Scenes get cut from films all the time for many reasons. Sometimes the run time needs to be tightened up. Sometimes pacing needs to be changed. And sometimes you wonder "just what the hell were they thinking?" James McAvoy has revealed that the original X-Men: First Class contained a fight scene that we would pay money to see right now. Professor X and Magneto team up in a full on physical brawl against a giant of a man. The existence of the scene came out as part of an interview with McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, co-stars in the new film Victor Frankenstein. IGN asked McAvoy how Professor X would fair against Frankenstein.s monster. The conclusion was, not so well, since the Professor.s mind manipulation likely wouldn.t work on somebody so underdeveloped. It turns out this was exactly the premise of a scene that never made it into »

James McAvoy Outlines A Very Silly Sounding X-Men: First Class Deleted Scene

19 November 2015 9:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During an interview to promote the upcoming Victor Frankenstein with IGN, James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe were asked a very geeky question about what would happen if Charles Xavier and Harry Potter went up against Frankenstein’s monster. As it turns out, the question reminded McAvoy of a scene he shot for Mathew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class that wound up being cut from the film, and when he describes how it played out, it’s not hard to see why.

Apparently, the scene in question saw Xavier and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) encounter a massive opponent that neither can take down using their mutant powers. That’s because not only is there no metal in the room for Mags to control, but the guy also happens to be too stupid for the Professor to work his mind magic on. So, they have to take him on the old fashioned way, »

James McAvoy Describes A Ridiculous-Sounding Deleted Scene From X-men: First Class

19 November 2015 7:30 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

X-Men: First Class didn't really take itself too seriously on the whole, and contained a few intentionally silly moments anyway - but the scene described by James McAvoy in the following video interview might have taken things to a new level of corniness altogether! It saw McAvoy's Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender's Erik Lehnsherr take on an unnamed brute that was apparently too stupid for the Professor's mind-control powers to work on. So, with Magneto also at a disadvantage with no metal in the room, the duo decide to take him on hand-to-hand. Have a watch for yourselves to find out what happens next.  This scene has to exist somewhere, and I for one hope we get to see it one day. Both McAvoy and Fassbender will return for X-Men: Apocalypse next May. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Quicksilver Scene Is Bigger and Better

18 November 2015 2:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With an amazing ensemble cast from both X-Men trilogies, some may have been surprised that the most memorable moment from X-Men: Days of Future Past involved one of the few brand new cast members. Fans were introduced to Evan Peters' Quicksilver in last summer's blockbuster, and many are still talking about the super slow motion scene where he hilariously disarms a group of Pentagon guards. Quicksilver will be back in next year's X-Men: Apocalypse, and during an interview with Collider, Evan Peters teased that his speedy character will have an even bigger scene.

"Yeah, Quicksilver does his thing again, in the new film. It's bigger, longer and more detailed. I think it's an amazing sequence that they've put together. Just filming it, I was like, 'Oh, my god!' I think we shot for 22 days of second unit, working on the sequence, which is amazing. It's so cool to »

Legion: X-Men TV show dubbed the 'Breaking Bad of superhero stories’

18 November 2015 1:16 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Producer Simon Kinberg has gone on record with some high praise for the in-development X-Men TV series Legion

Since the news broke about the two in-development X-Men TV projects – Hellfire and Legion - we haven’t heard a great deal more about them. Now, stalwart X-Men producer Simon Kinberg has broken the silence.

Legion and Hellfire are both super active,” he confirmed to Collider. “Hellfire we’re hoping to be shooting at the beginning of next year, the pilot. It’s been extraordinary working with [Fargo alum] Noah Hawley [on Legion], who I think is a straight up genius.” Kinberg goes on to mention that Legion will probably shoot early next year, as well.

“I mean the thing that’s cool and that’s the hope in branching out to TV is that we can tell these X-Men stories in a slightly different way and even with a slightly different tone, »

Bryan Singer Directing New 'X-Men' Movie for 2018?

16 November 2015 4:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that director Bryan Singer is returning to Montreal for reshoots on his upcoming superhero adventure X-Men: Apocalypse, which is slated for release on May 27, 2016. After that sequel hits theaters, many have wondered what 20th Century Fox has planned for the X-Men franchise, since this adventure will close out the current trilogy that includes 2011's X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Today we have a new report from Journal de Montreal, which claims that Bryan Singer is coming back to Montreal in 2017 to direct a new X-Men film that will hit theaters in 2018.

No plot details were revealed for X-Men 7, but this report claims that Bryan Singer will open its production offices in November 2016 at Montreal's Mel's Studios, to prep for a shoot that will begin sometime in 2017. Mel Studios' Michel Trudel spent last week in Los Angeles, where he finalized »

Bryan Singer Rumored To Direct Next X-Men Movie In Early 2017

16 November 2015 3:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As of right now, the future of the X-Men franchise is unclear. While 2016 will see the release of Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit, 2017 has only the third Wolverine movie, and there’s nothing in 2018 as of yet. While an X-Men: Apocalypse follow-up for that year seems likely, it has yet to be confirmed, but a new report certainly points to that being the case.

According to Journal De Montreal (the site that broke the news about X-Men: Apocalypse heading back to the city for reshoots), the plan is for the next X-Men movie to start shooting there in early 2017. Bryan Singer is expected to be back at the helm, but it’s very likely that the scheduling may not work out in the end, given the fact that he’s supposed to be turning his attention to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea after X-Men: Apocalypse.

New 'Deadpool' and 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Trailers Coming in December

11 November 2015 1:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, director Bryan Singer posted a new photo from the editing room of X-Men: Apocalypse, revealing that a teaser is "coming soon." Naturally, the director didn't offer a specific date as to when the first footage may arrive, which lead to speculation about what movie the trailer may be attached to. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 was considered one candidate, since Jennifer Lawrence stars in both movies, but today producer Simon Kinberg confirmed to Collider that the trailer will actually be attached to prints of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and that a new Deadpool trailer is also coming sometime next month. Here's what the producer had to say, revealing the X-Men: Apocalypse teaser will be longer than a minute.

"I can in fact confirm that information. Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's our first thing out there so it »

We’ll be getting an X-Men Apocalypse trailer very soon

11 November 2015 4:55 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With a big release like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you’d expect many a studio trying to tag a trailer onto each print, and while we already know that Marvel/ Disney will debut the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War onto the December 17/18 release, it looks like Fox has plans too.

According to Collider, we’ll see the first trailer for next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse before the first Star Wars sequel too.

Producer/ writer Simon Kinberg told the site: “Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens”,

“It’s our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser but it’s certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it”.

We’d expect it online shortly after then, but it’s interesting that Fox have managed to mage this prime piece of promotional real estate. »

What Toby Kebbell Really Thinks About Fantastic Four Totally Flopping

9 November 2015 7:37 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What will be the future of the Fantastic Four franchise, following the dismal reboot that – by several accounts – set the already reeling superhero series back a few additional steps. You are always one hit away from turning things around (right, X-Men: First Class?), which means Marvel’s first family can right the ship, at some point. In order to do so, however, they need to pay attention to the fan feedback, and listen to the outcry that followed this summer’s ill-calculated flop. This, according to Toby Kebbell, the outstanding actor who played Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s butchered reboot of Fantastic Four. Kebbell was promoting Warcraft at BlizzCon recently, and was asked by IGN what he thought of the film’s dismal performance. Separated from the release by a few weeks, Kebbell was able to be candid, admitting: I was disappointed, but »

X-Men Star Nicholas Hoult's Big Problem With Superhero Movies

5 November 2015 8:11 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Since 2011's X-Men: First Class, Nicholas Hoult has been a Beast of the Marvel Comics variety. Yet despite his role in one of the biggest comic book franchises on the market, he's admitted that at times he's a bit cold to the genre for one big reason: it tends to follow the formula too often. While in an interview with NME, in order to promote his role in the film Kill Your Friends, Hoult addressed the four paneled elephant in the room that we all know exists when it comes to most comic franchises. His exact qualm with the current superhero template is summarized as follows:  At times I'll see superhero movies and admittedly be frustrated by them. It does feel like some are just packaging and they're not trying hard enough because they know it's a bankable formula. That "bankable formula" is something that we've all come to know »

Nicholas Hoult "Frustrated" By Some Superhero Movies - "They're Just Packaging"

5 November 2015 11:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Nicholas Hoult sat down with NME magazine for an extensive cover story interview, the British actor was asked about the current state of superhero movies, having played the mutant Hank McCoy, aka Beast, in X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past, and the upcoming Apocalypse. "At times I’ll see superhero movies and admittedly be frustrated by them," said Hoult. "It does feel like some are just packaging and they’re not trying hard enough because they know it’s a bankable formula." The Mad Max star did not specify which superhero films he's referring to, but it's likely the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, many of which have been described as formulaic. Regardless, Nicholas Hoult later reassured that the "packaging" criticism does not apply to his ever-growing mutant franchise. "I love the X-Men films because they have a heart to them and you have actors like Michael Fassbender who »
