Quicksilver announced for… X-Men?

Quicksilver announced for… X-Men?
We’ve previously mentioned that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have been confirmed for Avengers 2. But today something interesting happened. Oh cool… wait, what? Bryan Singer has been keeping his Twitter fans up to date with regular news bites and photos. But this was something we weren’t expecting and it raises a huge number of questions. So let’s look at some possibilities shall we? Scenario #1: This is all some trick and... 

Michael B. Jordan Could Be The Next Human Torch

Michael B. Jordan Could Be The Next Human Torch
It’s been reported that Michael B. Jordan is in talks to play Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four reboot. He’s most famous for his role in Chronicle as one of the male leads who gained psychic powers, so he’s already familiar with green screen and wires. And his character in that wasn’t so far from the jokey nature of Johnny Storm. It’s also interesting to note that the director behind the next Fantastic Four is Josh... 

So What’s the Problem With the Justice League movie?

So What’s the Problem With the Justice League movie?
 The Justice League is one of those strange entities where, despite having no real confirmation about pretty much anything, we still keep hearing news. If you’re curious about the Justice League movie, here’s the gist so far. A script written by Will Beall has been around for months now and as far back as six months ago Warner Bros were on the look out for a director. And that was it; that and a release date of 2015 (to rival Avengers... 

All You Need to Know About X-Men: Days of Future Past

All You Need to Know About X-Men: Days of Future Past
Since Bryan Singer took a seat in the director’s chair it seems like there’s been a bit of news cropping up on an almost daily basis. So it seemed best to try and gather everything known about the film so far. The Old Team’s Back Together (Almost) The first bit of news to emerge after Bryan Singer took over the project was the return of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. He tweeted about their return on the same day that he welcomed... 

Hugh Jackman’s back with the X-Men

Hugh Jackman’s back with the X-Men
  Well the foot is truly in this writer’s mouth. After the news of Patrick Stewart’s and Ian McKellen’s return to X-Men, it turns out Hugh Jackman is coming back too! The actor is currently in negotiations to be Wolverine once again. In fact the man might not even have time to put his claws away after The Wolverine. The next question is, can we expect anyone else to return? Famke Janssen is already cameoing in The Wolverine, so... 

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Matthew Vaughn out and Bryan Singer in?

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Matthew Vaughn out and Bryan Singer in?
At a fairly late stage Matthew Vaughn has stepped down as director for X-Men: Days of Future Past. His reasons for leaving haven’t fully been explained, though some seem to think it has something to do with his work on Mark Millar’s Secret Service (that’s his comic book and it’s adaptation, not his own attempt at MI6). The good news for fans of the original X-Men films, is that Bryan Singer is on the top of Fox’s list of possible... 

Famke Janssen to cameo in The Wolverine

Famke Janssen to cameo in The Wolverine
According to wegotthiscovered.com Famke Janssen flew to Sydney last week to record a cameo for The Wolverine as Jean Grey (aka The Phoenix). This could be what she was hinting at a couple of weeks ago.  The Wolverine is a prequel of sorts to the main X-Men trilogy of films, so we’ll have to wait and see if this will be a re-introduction of her character or something else. But with Mark Millar now helping Fox to build a shared universe, could... 

Mark Millar and a shared Fox/Marvel Universe

Mark Millar and a shared Fox/Marvel Universe
Mark Millar is currently enjoying his new position as Creative Consultant for Fox and their Marvel movies. They currently hold the rights to Fantastic Four, X-Men, Wolverine and Deadpool. According to Millar, “Fox have said that they want to build a cohesive universe and I’d personally like this to work in complement to the Marvel one. It would be cool if these universes didn’t contradict each other so if you went to see Spidey, The Avengers,... 

Jim Carrey for Kick-Ass 2?

Jim Carrey for Kick-Ass 2?
With the sequel to 2010’s fantastic superhero satire Kick-Ass in pre-production, Kick-Ass 2 creator Mark Millar and the writer/director of the film adaptation Jeff Wadlow both hit the Twitterverse with not-so-cryptic hints behind their casting of the character ‘Colonel Stars’.  6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then! @chloegmoretz @mintzplasse @donald_faison #kickass2 — Jeff Wadlow...
