Read Adam Frazier’s review of this film from May here.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the X-Men movie I’ve dreamed of since my youth, back in the day when I mowed lawns during the dog days of summer to save up enough money to buy the latest X-comics off the shaky wire racks at my neighborhood 7-11. Those were the days when the comics were written by the great Chris Claremont and drawn by his gifted artistic equal Jim Lee and Future Past is the closest we’ve come yet to having a motion picture that brings those bold emotions, visuals, and outrageous “only in the funny books” style of four-color storytelling to explosive life.

As the late, great Mickey Newbury once sung, the future’s not what it used to be. The world has long been ravaged by a war between an alliance of mutants and sympathetic humans and the relentless robotic mutant hunters the Sentinels. Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and his X-Men are now the last remnants of the resistance and every day their numbers get lower. Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and her ability to project a person’s consciousness back in time has helped give them a slim advantage in the ongoing battle and that power must now be used to send someone back to the point in history when the war became unavoidable: the assassination of Sentinel creator Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) at the hands of Xavier’s former friend and surrogate sister Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) in 1973.

X-Men Gold #1

The X-Men have been in print for 50 years! Marvel is celebrating that milestone with a limited series called X-Men Gold that will feature all-new stories from the creators that have made the Children of the Atom what they are today (for better or for worse).

X-Men Gold #1 is an all-new full-length story from writer Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod. Claremont has had a rocky return to the franchise over the last few years, but there’s no denying the impact he had on the X-Men and the Marvel Universe in general. There’s also an all-new story from Stan “the Man” Lee! Other stories set at various points in X-Men history are from creators Len Wein, Jorge Molina, Fabian Nicieza, Salvador Larroca, Roy Thomas, and Pat Olliffe.

The Wolverine PosterThe Wolverine

Twentieth Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 126 Minutes

Hugh Jackman In Talks To Return As Wolverine In ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’

Wolverine

Losing previous director Matthew Vaughn – possibly to Star Wars Episode VII – has not slowed down development on X-Men: Days of Future Past one bit. Shortly after Vaughn’s departure Bryan Singer, a producer on the Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class, signed on to direct his first X-Men film since 2003’s X2. Then just yesterday Singer confirmed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would be re-entering the franchise as the older Professor X and his friend and nemesis Magneto.

One of the remaining question marks surrounding the casting of Days of Future Past would be whether or not Hugh Jackman would also be joining the ever-growing ensemble cast. He’s become the X-Men franchise’s star player and good luck charm so it should come as no surprise to anyone that Jackman is now in negotiations to return as Wolverine.

Wolverine

A possible teaser poster for next summer’s The Wolverine has leaked today. You can check it out here below.

The image was supposedly taken from the office of director James Mangold. If it proves to be authentic the poster will confirm that the next movie is taking Marvel’s ageless, adamantium-clawed mutant to Japan for a storyline adapted from the early 1980’s comic miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller that will pit Logan against ninjas, samurai, and a lost love. It’s a stark and powerful teaser with Wolverine’s trademark claws slashing through the image of the flag and the tagline “Rising Soon” playing on the nation’s identity as the Land of the Rising Sun.

Wolverine

It’s being reported that Christopher McQuarrie has been hired to write the screenplay for the sequel this year’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The project is currently being developed by Hugh Jackman, and as expected, it will be taking the temperamental bladed mutant off to Japan.

The movie has always been expected to follow the Samurai storyline that Wolverine embarked on, but the pitch that McQuarrie made was likely the best take on that particular storyline. The tale would be based on the Frank Miller and Chris Claremont story, The Samurai, in which Wolverine goes to Japan and trains as a Samurai while also working on his anger issues.
