When it was announced that EastEnders star Ben Hardy would be joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, many speculated that he would play the winged-mutant Angel. It made sense considering he looked a lot like Warren Worthington III, but as to if he would play Angel or the transformed Archangel, that was unclear.

Now director Bryan Singer confirms that the actor is indeed playing as Angel, but added that “he’s not a very nice Angel!” More after the jump, including some concept art.

X-Men First Class Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert

While Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen won’t be returning for X-Men: Apocalypse, it looks like Rose Byrne will be.

The Bridemaids star is set to reprise her role as Moira MacTaggert in Bryan Singer’s final film of the First Class trilogy, according to EW, which added that Apocalypse screenwriter Simon Kinberg revealed that the CIA Agent and Professor X love interest will be “a significant character in the movie.”

The Lazarus Effect

The first trailer has been released for the upcoming horror movie The Lazarus Effect, which comes from David Gelb, the documentary filmmaker behind the excellent Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

The movie stars Mark Duplass, Olivia Wilde, Donald Glover, Evan Peters, and Sarah Bolger, and follows a group of medical students who figure out a way to bring the dead back to life.

You can check out the trailer for The Lazarus Effect below, and then hope with me that it’s better than The Butterfly Effect.

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.

Anna Paquin’s ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Cameo As Rogue Reinstated To The Final Cut

Rogue

Back in December the Movie God reported that Anna Paquin‘s brief appearance as Rogue in next month’s mutant-packed mega-sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past had become an occupant of the cutting room floor. According to director Bryan Singer at the time it was an “embarrassment of riches” situation and while it was a “really good sequence” it simply had to go.

Singer’s comments seemed to signal the end of the matter, until Paquin’s name appeared in the credits at the end of the new trailer for Days of Future Past that was released on Tuesday evening. I watched that trailer twice and couldn’t spot the presence of Rogue at any time unless it was a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment. According to a representative at 20th Century Fox Paquin’s role has now been recovered from the unforgiving territory of future Blu-ray supplements and reinstated to the cut of Future Past that will be released theatrically, but in a slightly reduced form.

‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’: New Character Images and Movie Stills

It’s really hard to get a comic book fan’s attention when Guardians of the Galaxy keeps jumping up and down while flailing its arms. And rightfully so, the trailer was a smashing success. But there are a few other comic book movies that have yet to be released that have a much bigger fan base and an already established franchise, such as X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which has had only one trailer so far.

But with the May 23, 2014 release date just months away, we can expect to see a new one soon. Until then Fox has released four new movie stills as well as a slew of character images to help promote the film. Check them out in the photo gallery here below.

Even Peters

Heroes and villains have to wear a costume to either protect their identity or create an image in the public’s eye. Now some of these costumes can be cool by being original or literal. But sometimes going the literal route may not be the best choice.

Both Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox will have the speedster mutant Quicksilver in their upcoming films. And while we still have a while to see what Marvel has come up with for their interpretation in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we are now getting a first look at what Evan Peters will look like as Quicksilver in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hit the jump to see what he looks like.

Evan Peters To Play Quicksilver In ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’; What Does This Mean For ‘The Avengers 2’?

Evan Peters As Quicksilver

When Joss Whedon announced that Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch were to appear in The Avengers 2, it posed an interesting and legally pondering question. Could one character appear in two different franchises run by two different studios? In comic book lore, Magneto is the father of mutant twins, Quicksilver and the Scarlett Witch. Since the two are both mutants, they technically are a part of the X-Men property, which is also under the 20th Century Fox banner. However, the two are also members of the Avengers, which happens to be under the Marvel/Disney banner.

Now with Bryan Singer well into shooting X-Men: Days Of Future Past, he has made a stunning casting announcement. The director recently tweeted that Evan Peters will play Quicksilver, the mutant who is capable of running at superhuman speeds.
