With its amazing cast and epic, time-spanning story, X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most anticipated releases in the superhero and sci-fi genres and looks set to recharge Fox's franchise for the future.
Director Bryan Singer says the film will bring a lot of new concepts to the screen when it opens in July 2014.
He told SFX: "It's not just another X-Men film; it's not just about the combined cast as there will be certain technologies and other stuff that we haven't seen before in the X-Men films.
"There are also issues of time and we're messing about with that. I think we've got it figured out. I pitched it to James Cameron when I was in New Zealand last year and he said 'Yes, that makes sense.'"
"We wanted an opportunity to bring some of the favourite older and younger characters together. We also wanted »

Bryan Singer tossed X-Men: Days of Future Past back into the spotlight yesterday, announcing via Twitter that he and studio Twentieth Century Fox have cast yet another key mutant character after the film had already begun shooting in Montreal.
Evan Peters of American Horror Story fame is playing the super-fast son of Magneto known as Quicksilver, a character that Joss Whedon is also currently planning to introduce into the Marvel Cinematic Universe via The Avengers 2. While we don’t quite yet know the implications of Singer’s latest roster addition when it comes to the two studios using the character, he does have bigger plans for Days of Future Past than fans may assume.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Orphan Black, Bates Motel, Nashville and Criminal Minds!
1 | Was Division’s “death” on Nikita as satisfying for you as it was for us?
2 | Was it a tad idiotic of Orphan Black‘s Cosima to leave Delphine — whom she suspects might be her monitor — alone in her apartment? And who else wants to borrow Alison’s music collection?

Although it was recently revealed by Joss Whedon that the character of Quicksilver would appear in Disney’s Avengers 2; Bryan Singer--Director of Fox’s X-Men: Days of future Past--has announced that Evan Peters will be playing Quicksilver in the X-sequel. So who really has the rights to Quicksilver? Both apparently!
Of all the characters in the Marvel Universe, you wouldn’t think that Quicksilver would be one of the heroes that studios are competing over, but that seems to be what’s happening. Recently, Avengers writer-Director Joss Whedon said that the mutant siblings Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch would appear as villains in Avengers 2. “You know, they had a rough beginning,” Whedon says of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. “They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. »

Well here's one for the books... after Joss Whedon confirmed that he'd be introducing the mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015's The Avengers, 20th Century Fox has moved to steal a march on Marvel Studios, with Bryan Singer revealing via Twitter that Quicksilver has been added the roster of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) cast in the role.
Having featured in both the X-Men and Avengers comic books, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - the offspring of X-Men baddie Magneto - are the subject of a bizarre rights issue, whereby both Fox and Marvel Studios can use the characters as part of their respective worlds, although Marvel can't make reference to them being mutants (or Magento's kids) and Fox can't refer to them as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Or, well, further speculated upon, anyway. In any case, as you might have heard yesterday, Bryan Singer made quite a kerfuffle when he announced on twitter the casting of Evan Peters (“American Horror Story”) as Quicksilver in his upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. He wrote: Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver. You’ll notice that he mentioned the Avengers in the above tweet. Well, that apparently was too on the nose, and Singer later went back and deleted that tweet and did a new one — minus the “Avengers” part: Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver. — Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) May 24, 2013 Unfortunately for Singer, and he really should have known this by now, once you put something out on the Interwebs, it stays forever. Even tweets. For a guy who tweets as much as he does, »
According to director Brian Singer's Twitter feed, "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters has just signed on to play Pietro Maximoff, aka the mutant superhero known as Quicksilver, in Singer's 2014 comic book epic "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Uh oh, you guys.
First, some background on why this character is appearing in two totally different franchises. In the comics, Quicksilver began his career as a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, helping Magneto fight the X-Men in the name of mutant equality. And this was before he even knew he was actually Magneto's son. However, he eventually had a change of heart, renounced his supervillain ways and joined the Avengers alongside his sister, Wanda Maximoff, aka The Scarlet Witch, another character Whedon has mentioned for "The Avengers 2."
So he's »

Proving some major movie studios just aren’t cut out for sharing, Fox has decided to add the super speedster Quicksilver to its upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past, even though Marvel Studios recently announced that it plans to include the character in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2. X-Men director Bryan Singer tweeted the announcement Thursday, saying American Horror Story actor Evan Peters will play the character. Quicksilver, along with his twin sister Scarlet Witch, is one of a handful of characters whose rights are shared between multiple studios; essentially, Marvel Studios owns the parts of the character’s »
"'Hemlock' is much more polarizing; you either love it or hate it," says Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos regarding the series. "The crossover for the people who love the show was 'American Horror Story,' not 'The Vampire Diaries.' It was incredibly popular in the Nordics because of the popularity of the Skarsgards [Bill Skarsgard stars] and in Latin America, where the horror genre is very big. 'Hemlock Grove' is horror, but it’s not really CW horror; it’s much more adult than that.
So is there more on the way? Sarandos says that they’re currently “hearing pitches” and plotline ideas for the second season. Stay tuned!

Orphan Black is flying a little bit under the radar over on BBC America — but it might be in your best interest to catch up before the last two episodes of this sci-fi nail-biter’s freshman season. Why? Because stuff’s about to go down…
In this exclusive sneak peek at the penultimate episode, airing Saturday at 9 p.m., we pick up moments after last week’s episode, which saw Kira getting hit by a car. Naturally, mom Sarah (recent Critics’ Choice nominee Tatiana Meslany) is freaking out and feeling quite a bit of guilt about the whole situation.

Director of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer wins at the Internet. I cannot get enough of how consistently well he treats fans to little snippets of goodness for his latest movie. Today we have three really great tweets to catch you up on.
First check out Peter Dinklage on a flight to Canada with Bryan Singer looking at what seems to be a script. It could be a take-out menu for all I know, but let’s call it a script. Then you can get your first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.

Avengers 2 will not be able to use Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's code names, it has been claimed.
Only 20th Century Fox, which controls the X-Men rights, will be able to use the characters' superhero titles, while Marvel can use the names Wanda and Pietro, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit.
"Following up a bit on @DrewAtHitFix's take on Quicksilver: Heard that Fox can actually use the Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch names," he wrote on Twitter.
"Marvel can use the the names Pietro and Wanda."
Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, the children of Magneto, first debuted in X-Men but have been important members of the Avengers over the years.
It is believed that the use of the names has been divided to prevent the franchises from being confused by audiences. »
If you’ve ever seen Scream 4, you might’ve seen Emma Roberts in a new light. She perfectly portrayed the kind of person who would be a normal teenager in one scene and a psychopath in another. The people behind American Horror Story: Coven must have watched her performance because she’s the latest to join the cast of the FX series’ third season. As with previous seasons, Roberts stands an equal chance of playing either a killer or a victim and it’s anyone’s guess which type of role she’ll land on. You could make assumptions based on her character’s description, but that won’t be enough to predict the insanity that is American Horror Story.
Roberts will be playing Madison, a self-involved party girl, reported TVLine. It sounds innocent enough, ignoring the vanity that will clearly be on display in this individual, but it »

Saoirse Ronan would "love" to play the Scarlet Witch in Avengers 2.
The writer-director has teased that Wanda Maximoff and her brother Quicksilver will feature in the 2015 film. Ronan is reportedly the studio's 'prototype' for the role.
"I have heard about it and yes, I would," said Ronan when asked by The Mary Sue if she would be interested in the part.
"Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it's very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I'd love to be in it."
The appearance of the mutant pair in the film has been thrown into some doubt this week with the announcement the American Horror Story »

Now this is a new one. A week or two ago, it came to light that the character of Quicksilver was on Joss Whedon's radar for inclusion in his upcoming The Avengers 2. Since then, he's confirmed the news, even though the role thus far remains uncast.
However, news has now broken that the Marvel character has also been snagged by Bryan Singer for his now-in-production X-Men: Days Of Future Past. It means that the same character will turn up in two entirely independent films, a year apart. That the news has broken now, following Joss Whedon's confirmation of Quicksilver for The Avengers 2, looks slightly odd, but then we'd hardly imagine that Singer has just rewritten his film to get on Marvel's nerves.
That said, »
Things are getting confusing in regards to the popular Marvel brother/sister hero characters of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
Marvel's Kevin Feige said "There's a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with 'Avengers,' but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage. They [Fox] can use them as mutants and as Magneto's relatives, but cannot have anything to do with 'The Avengers.'"
Well, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer has plans to do just that with the help of "American Horror Story" actor Evan Peters. Singer tweeted this week: "Before he was an Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say Evan Peters is joining 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' as Quicksilver. »

Joss Whedon recently revealed that the brother/sister team of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will appear in "The Avengers 2." The problem is that 20th Century Fox also owns the rights to the characters. "There's a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with 'Avengers,' but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage," Marvel head Kevin Feige previously stated. "They can use them as mutants and as Magneto's relatives, but cannot have anything to do with 'The Avengers.'" Now comes word directly from director Bryan Singer that Evan Peters ("American Horror Story") has been cast as Magneto's son, Pietro Maximoff (aka Quicksilver) in Fox's "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Singer wrote on Twitter: "Before he was an Avenger, he was just a Really fast kid. Thrilled to say Evan Peters is joining 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' as Quicksilver. »
Did Save Me have you shouting hallelujah?
NBC’s newest comedy premiered Thursday (8/7c) with two back-to-back episodes. In them, we meet Beth Harper (played by Anne Heche, Men in Trees), a Midwestern wife and mother who has a near-death experience in her kitchen after choking on a hero sandwich.
When she’s revived, she claims to be able to receive messages from God. This mortifies her daughter Emily (Madison Davenport, Shameless) and stymies Beth’s husband Tom (Michael Landes, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman)… who’s got a different kind of religious moment happening on the regular »
