ComicBookMovie – Bryan Singer Says Mark Millar Is  “Not Involved” With X-MEN: DOFP
“I’ve not spoken to Mark Millar at all. He’s not involved. I don’t know what his  role is about. All I know is that I have my own specific beliefs about how to  take this universe forward. I started with the first X-Men, then First Class and  now I am combining them and I think it could go further than that and I have  some ideas about that, so perhaps he should chat to me at some point.” –He was the one saying Kitty Pryde would have a big screen role, seems he was talking too much again. I still don’t think she’s the time-traveler. It will be Wolvie and/or Bishop (if that is who Omar Sy plays).

ComicBookMovie – James McAvoy (Seemingly)  Confirms Alan Cumming’s Return For X-MEN: DOFP
“It’s huge, the cast is huge. You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael  Fassbender,] Nicholas Hoult will be back and he’s just blossoming massively over  [in america]. Patrick Stewart, Ian Mckellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming,  Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned – I don’t know if that’s happening – “Huge” Jackman is coming by. He’s massive, 7’5″ and muscle-ly.” – As much as I would love to see Nightcrawler back… he’s probably confused.

I better step away or get caught in  something over here.’ And I was kind of like, ‘Really? Is that where we’re at in  the 21st century?”

X-Men Legacy #6This issue proves that prognostics really are a pain in the butt.

So, David is able to pull himself together long enough to start using some of his many abilities, getting a self-esteem boost for the win. But ultimately, he has both Daddy issues and one very dangerous personality in his mind and falls apart again. He also obviously doesn’t care about his health cause he goes walking away in the rain in nothing but some sweat pants. (Surely someone at the School would have offered him at least a coat?!?)

Blindfold ends up saving the day, either killing Luca or at least incapacitating him for a while, they didn’t make that quite clear cause he did get stabbed in the back with his body breaking apart but the eyes do go flying off into the air. Oh well, I’m sure it won’t be long till we find out.

I keep thinking that Blindfold has to be a teenager, like 17 or 18… how old is David now? He’s been around awhile and Xavier was fairly older so he should be in at least his mid to late 20s… so not sure what I think about those potentially hooking up, but we’ll see.

Lastly, “Charles Xavier” appears in David’s head but seeing as he kinda ‘transforms’ I’m pretty sure it’s just one of his personalities pulling a fast one on him.

This is a rather middle of the road issue but at least it leans away from all the ‘bad mouthing the x-men to push up David’s character’ stuff for the most part. Hopefully this means the end of the set up phase of the title and we’ll start getting some good adventures and characterization moments. I do give this issue props for the cover page with quotes like “One does not simply…”, “There can be only one.”, and “Epic Fail.”

ComicBookMovie – Jason Flemyng Not Returning For  X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
“I don’t think I will be back. Initially I was gutted, but then, I  remembered I had to get up at two in the morning, I had to be painted red and be slightly out of focus and posed a lot, and that was  sort of it. Now I don’t have to do that.”

James Mangold, director of highly anticipated (by me at least) The Wolverine, tweeted on Saturday: “I’m posting images from films that inspired / influenced THE WOLVERINE. Name the movies. Even better, go see them.”

Here is the list:

Chungking Express

The Outlaw Josey Wales

Samaurai Trilogy

Kwaiden

Black Narcissus

Happy Together

13 Assassins

French Connection

Chinatown

Shane

This is quite the collection of classic Western and Kung Fu cinema, with some of these being the very definition of art-house film. This is not the usual fare for a Superhero movie, even a Nolan-verse film, but it’s very fitting for classic Wolverine. In fact, some of these images seem to come straight from the pages of 1980s Wolverine comics.

Kwaiden

 

The first trailer for The Wolverine will be shown on the G.I. Joe 2 movie March 29th and we’ll get our first look at the tone of the film. I really can’t wait!

I also can’t get over the fact how much Eastwood looks like Logan in this still from The Outlaw Josey Wales

If I had mad-photoshop-skills I’d totally replace those guns with claws… it’s just so uncanny!

Uncanny X-Men #2I’ve always prefered Emma Frost as the bad guy. It has nothing to do with Scott or Jean… I just like the concept behind the White Queen. I really think she could have been the one to rule the world… and not through force but in the Emperor Palpatine style where she gets the world handed to her through cunning and subterfuge.

As the good girl, I just find her boring.

In respect to the second issue of the new(er) Uncanny X-Men, I find myself torn trying to figure out what I think of this new iteration of Emma.

While she admits that part of her wants to blame others for her mistakes… the mistakes that’s she coping to, that she is blaming herself for, is hurting Scott for the whole thing she did with Namor. Scott was treating you like crap (cause, you know, he’s a serial adulter) and then you were kinda possessed. Not saying you don’t have stuff to feel guilty for Emma, but that should be so much lower on your list.

As for her teaching and being part of the revolution… that kinda goes back to her older roots of the Hellfire Club and the Massachusetts Academy. She’s also fairly blunt and honest, especially when it comes to Illyana scaring the crap out of her (which she should scare her cause that’s one mentally mucked-up snowflake).

So I’m not really sure if I want to be sympathetic towards her… or root for her to evolve back into the White Queen who could kick all their butts. We’ll definitely have to see where things go with her characterization here in this title… but first let’s see how many survive the Avengers.

Omar SyBryan Singer announced on twitter that Omar Sy from The Intouchables has been added to the Days of Future Past cast.

Of course, he doesn’t say who Omar will be playing and all the media sites I’ve been to aren’t hazarding a guess (probably because of getting Peter Dinklage all wrong before).

I’m going to go ahead and throw out there my thoughts… and that’s that Omar will be playing non other than Bishop. And I have other reasons to believe this than simply the fact that he looks like Bishop only (thankfully) without the mullet.

While Bishop didn’t have anything to do with the Days of Future Past comic, the adaptation of the story line into the 90s X-Men: The Animated Series had Bishop as the time traveler instead of Kitty Pryde (and it wasn’t ‘mind travel’ but full body travel). Bishop has also been a fairly popular character in the past, not big enough to lead his own film, but a perfect addition to a movie based around the idea of time traveling.

If Omar is indeed Bishop, then I’ll have to start rethinking if Wolvie will be the time traveler as it could easily (and more likely) be Bishop… or maybe there is going to be more than one time traveler?
