Earlier today, we showed you new X-Men: Apocalypse photos, which featured several mutants such as Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). If those weren't enough for you, then perhaps the latest set photo from director Bryan Singer will do the trick. This image from the Montreal set features the director doing his best "air guitar" with what is assumed to be an Archangel prop. It's possible that this object, which looks like part of the character's wing, could be one of the super-sharp projectiles Archangel shoots from the forearms of his metallic suit in the comic books. But that has not been confirmed. This is the first time Archangel has been referred to by name, instead of Angel, although we don't get to see the actor who portrays him, Ben Hardy, in this photo.
Most fans assumed that Angel, a character first confirmed with a concept »
Welcome to today's edition of Nerd Alert, where we have all the quirky, nerdy news that you crave in one convenient spot. What do we have in store for you on this tantalizing Thursday? We have a breakdown of how X-Men: Days of Future Past differs from the comics it was based on, a video that breaks down Hot Toys' toy-crafting process and an extensive Back to The Future retrospective. But first, find out how Inside Out should have ended. So, sit back, relax and check out all that today's Nerd Alert has to offer.
How Inside Out Should Have Ended
How It Should Have Ended is tackling Inside Out this week, which shows how "brain farts" really work and what happens when someone's mind is blown. It's a wonderful but brief video that pokes fun at the movie without actually tearing into it too much. Inside Out is doing just fine, »
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 »
Superhero movies always have some underlying comic book from which the filmmakers are pulling their material. For Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past it was the two-issue story of the same name from Uncanny X-Men published in 1981. If you were wondering if it.s a faithful adaptation, there are only general similarities between the page and the screen. Watch this video for a breakdown of the differences. The folks from CineFix decided to take it upon themselves to deep dive into the comics to see just what Singer and co. left out and what they brought faithfully into the Days of Future Past film. If you.re already familiar with the comics, the biggest difference has to do with the main character. Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat, played by Ellen Page in the film, is the one who travels back in time from this Sentinel-ridden, post-apocalyptic future. Rachel Summers, the »
In an exciting meshing of old and new franchise stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past effectively rebooted the comic book franchise again, complete with a new timeline that retconned the old one, and brought all your favorite characters who died in the original trilogy back from the dead. And while the title and basic storyline […]

The latest issue of Empire Magazine has some new stills from X-Men: Apocalypse, and you can see them below (the one featuring Apocalypse, Psylocke, and Storm may seem familiar, but compare it to the one which debuted in EW, and you'll see it is pretty different). They also have quotes from director Bryan Singer, and he had this to say about the look of Apocalypse in the X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up. "He'll be very similar to images in the comic. There's obviously something very futuristic and yet ancient to the design of both his costume and his physicality." The filmmaker also weighed in on Quicksilver's role in the movie because you just know it's not going to be easy to top what happened the last time we saw him (in an X-Men move that is). "You can't have him run around a kitchen in the Pentagon again. But »
It’s been two weeks since “X-Men: Days Of Future Past – The Rogue Cut” hit home video and while fans continue to parse through the changes of the new alternate version of the 2014 blockbuster film, the fine folks at CineFix are digging even deeper to find the differences between Bryan Singer’s superhero film and its source material. In its latest installment of “What’s the Difference?” Cinefix spends nearly fifteen minutes comparing the 1981 two-issue “Days of Future Past” storyline written by Chris Claremont and John Byrne for “The Uncanny X-Men” with the script by Simon Kinberg. Cinefix’s video gets very in depth with its subject matter, even explaining the significance of Kitty Pryde being the time traveller in the comic while also defending the choice of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine going in her place in the Singer film. Overall, the video is a great look at the changes »

While there’s still no sign of the “Deadpool” trailer that took Comic-Con by storm earlier this month, 20th Century Fox has thrown fans a bone by releasing three new photos from Ryan Reynolds’ hotly anticipated superhero film, courtesy of the U.K.’s Empire magazine.
We’ve seen Marvel’s infamous “Merc with a Mouth” in costume already, thanks to previously released promotional stills, but one of the new images offers our first glimpse of Reynolds’ Wade Wilson out of his signature red and black armor with his paramour Vanessa Carlysle (Morena Baccarin), aka Copycat, a shape-shifting mutant who was associated with the X-Men offshoot group X-Force in the comics.
This will be Reynolds’ second time behind Deadpool’s mask; the character was last seen onscreen in 2009’s poorly received X-Men spinoff, »

Chicago – The situation with in-country immigrants is not just an issue in the United States. The new French film “Samba” focuses on the ongoing status of immigrants in Paris, who often do menial jobs while surviving under the radar of immigration laws. French Actor Omar Sy portrays the title character with insight and humor.
This is Sy’s (pronounced “see”) second film with co-writer/directors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano, after the well-received “The Intouchables’ in 2011. The French born actor – of parents who emigrated from Senegal in Africa – has an background that is similar to the characters he has portrayed for Nakache and Toledano, and he adds a touch of realism, in addition to redemption, to these roles. He recently broke into American films in a huge way, with prominent appearances in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and this summer’s “Jurassic World.”
Omar Sy is the Title Character in »

Hugh Jackman has posted a picture on Twitter teasing the upcoming third Wolverine solo film, which will mark the actor’s final performance as the character.
The picture shows Wolverine holding up one claw, with “#OneLastTime” written next to him. See it here…
Jackman, who is undeniably the face of the X-Men film franchise, has popped up in either large or small roles in each X-Men film so far, from 2000’s X-Men to 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
At this year’s Comic-Con, Jackman dropped a hint that Wolverine 3 may tell the popular Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Wolverine 3, which has still not received an official name, will be hitting theaters on March 3, 2017. The Wolverine director James Mangold will be returning to helm the film, while Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier/Professor X) is rumored to appear alongside Jackman.

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. »
With production on X-Men: Apocalypse still going strong in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared yet another photo through his Instagram account, showcasing one of the massive practical sets. The filmmaker is seen being dwarfed by an Egyptian statue. But he wouldn't offer any details about the set itself or how it fits into the X-Men: Apocalypse story. He did say on his social media account that, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse."
This photo comes just a few days after Bryan Singer posted a photo with Sir Patrick Stewart on the set, which fueled speculation that he would return in a cameo role as Charles Xavier. The actor wasn't seen in costume, but he was watching footage with the director and another filmmaker, Jason Reitman, who was putting together a live read of The Big Lebowski at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. It was never »
Sneak Peek more leaked trailer footage from director Bryan Singer's currently shooting feature, "X-Men: Apocalypse, including younger versions of Marvel Comics' mutants 'Cyclops', 'Jean Grey', 'Jubilee', 'Nightcrawler' and 'Storm':
...and is intended to be the ninth installment in the Fox 'X-Men' film series.
"It will address historical mutant-cy," said Singer about the new film.
"...meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that.

An old mutant getting a fresh face in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" is that of Cyclops. James Marsden played the role in the original trilogy and returned for a cameo in last year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".
In the new take though, it's Tye Sheridan taking on the part and he was asked by Indiewire how his version differs to that of previous iterations:
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where I've met a lot of my characters -- in these sort of young life transitions where they're struggling to figure things out about themselves.
He's now learning about being a mutant and trying to handle his superhero powers. The arc for »

Last year, X-Men: Days of Future Past brought mutants together from the original X-Men franchise, and from the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. Next year, fans will be introduced to more younger versions of iconic characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Jubilee (Lana Condor), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcralwer (Kodi Smit-McPhee). While discussing his new indie film The Stanford Prison Experiment, Tye Sheridan offered some insight into his Cyclops character, played by James Marsden in the original trilogy. When asked how his version of Cyclops is different than previous iterations, the actor had this to say, in an interview with IndieWire.
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where »
Yes, Patrick Stewart is confirmed to have arrived on the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse this weekend. But don't get too excited. It doesn't look like he'll be appearing as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) in any capacity. Instead, it simply looks like he is visiting his old director Bryan Singer. And it sounds like the pair are joining director Jason Reitman for one of his legendary live script reads. No, it's not a rendition of 2000's X-Men. The trio will be enjoying a live reading of the Coen Brothers' classic The Big Lebowski.
Back in January, Patrick Stewart confirmed that neither he nor Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. The entirety of the film takes place in 1983, the same weekend Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi opened in theaters. There is no reason for the older versions »
In general, superhero movies are big into cameos and appearances from characters other than the main heroes. It.s not uncommon to see faces from other movies pop in for a quick visit. Last time we saw those fan favorite mutants the X-Men, in X-Men: Days of Future Past, there were multiple generations of Charles Xavier. And while we only expect to see one in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, James McAvoy.s version, the original, Patrick Stewart, recently stopped by the set. This doesn.t mean anything, but it.s still pretty cool. Trying to look intensely thoughtful, @sirpatstew and #jasonreitman visiting #xmen #apocalypse #xmenapocalypse set and reminiscing about our own #daysoffuturepast. Looking forward to "jasonreitmanlivereading tonight of #biglebowski with #michaelfassbender as "The Dude!"

Back in January this year, X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart thought that neither he nor co-star Ian McKellen were going to be popping up in X-Men Apocalypse, with the focus on the 1983 versions of the mutants that were rebooted in X-Men: First Class and continued into X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now a new set […]

Singer made the disclosure in an interview with Yahoo Movies about the home entertainment release of “X-Men: Days of Future Past — The Rogue Cut,” which is Singer’s cut of the film and includes 17 more minutes than the theatrical release.
“There are those ideas in play,” Singer said. “That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a mechanism by which to do it.”
He added, “We have to see how the films turn out — how this film turns out, how ‘Fantastic Four’ plays, to really understand what kind of desire and how that would really work. I think to just say you’re gonna do it is a mistake. You have to see how the films »

It's hard to tell what's rumour and what has a spine of fact to it when it comes to chatter about the worlds of X-Men and Fantastic Four colliding on screen. Both are Marvel properties that 20th Century Fox has the screen rights too, and the studio will be keen to keep them both active, lest it lose them as it did with Daredevil.
When X-Men: Days Of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer starts nattering about crossover potential then, then we figure that's worth talking about. Chatting to Yahoo Movies, he confirmed that "those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it. It deals with time. That’s all I’m going to say".
