Marvel and FOX shared a bit of X-Men: Apocalypse footage to a very lucky few people at Comic-Con this past summer. At long last, the studio has unleashed the first trailer to the masses and it was worth the wait. Instant goosebumps.

Oscar Isacc, who’s unrecognizable given all the CGI, plays the main adversary in the film- the original mutant Apocalypse. Making their debut in the X-Men franchise are Alexandre Shipp and Sophie Turner who play a younger Storm and Jean Grey respectively. Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Ben Hardy (Angel) and Lara Condor (Jubilee) join the party as well. They’ll join returning players including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and others.

X-Men Apocalypse Movie Synopsis

“Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.”

X-Men: Apocalypse storms in theaters on May 27, 2016. It’s the conclusion of Singer’s young-mutant trilogy. Check out the killer trailer below.

Through the editing process, Anna Paquin’s scenes were cut from X-Men: Days of Future Past. Sadly, another editing floor victim. Director Bryan Singer broke the news as the film was about to hit theaters. He did promise, however, that the deleted scenes might surface on the home video version.

Making good on his word, the blu-ray release of X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut arrives on July 14. Fans will now get to see how Rogue fits into the Days of Future Past storyline. It should be substantial since roughly 17 minutes were cut. Check out a preview of Rogue’s scenes below.

Betsy Braddock, better known as Psylocke, is a female mutant with telepathy and telekinesis powers who later becomes a ninja assassin in the X-Men comic books. She previously appeared in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, but at that time she had the ability to teleport herself through areas of shadow and was played by Mei Melancon.

Bryan Singer revealed via Instagram he’s bringing the character back but has chosen another actress to portray her for X:Men Apocalypse. Find out who below.

Did Magneto Assassinate John F. Kennedy?

Conspiracy theories have surrounded the assassination of John F. Kennedy for years. Many have believed Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t act on his own. As it turns out, perhaps he didn’t.

In a brilliant new promo for X-Men Days of Future Past, Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto is implicated in a mutant plot to kill the President. It’s wise for the studio to jump on the JFK bandwagon. Memorials for the 35th president of the United States have been everywhere for the 50th anniversary of his death.

If the mutant theory intrigues you, be sure to go to the website TheBentBullet.com. There, you’ll see an assortment of faux documents, articles and interviews substantiating Magneto and other mutants’ involvement with that fateful day in Dallas. Check out the video below.

After teasing us last week, Marvel finally shelled out the goods. At long last, the first full-length movie trailer for the highly anticipated sequel-prequel is here. And it’s everything I’d hope it would be.

The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves in an epic battle that must change the past– to save their future. Watching Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin and Ian McKellan in the same film is going to be phenomenal. To boot, several new faces join the franchise including Booboo Stewart (Warpath), Adan Canto (Sunspot), Fan Bingbing (Blink), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Lucas Till (Havok). Check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer below.

I’m a sucker for eye-catching promotional material and whoever came up with these promotional posters for X-Men Days Of Future deserves a raise. Entertainment Weekly gives fans the first look at the wicked creative.

Superhero flicks have often played on the theme of duality. You know, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Clark Kent/Superman, Peter Parker/Spider-man… the list goes on. In all of those instances, it’s usually one actor playing both roles. Since the upcoming X-Men flick spans decades, two high-profile actors are splitting the work and tackling younger and older versions of some of the film’s main players.

In the newly-debuted posters, Professor X and Magneto are front and center. Check out the fantastic artwork featuring Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy melded as the former, while Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender are mashed up as the latter. Check them out below.

Just when I thought X-Men Days of Future Past casting was complete, Bryan Singer throws a curve ball. The 47-year-old director announced via Twitter that Quicksilver, the speedy son of Magneto, will make an appearance in the highly-anticipated sequel.

“Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.” – Bryan Singer’s Twitter

The interesting part of this news is not who’s playing Quicksilver, but rather the addition of the character in the film. Just recently, Joss Whedon announced Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch were part of his plans for The Avengers sequel.

To give a bit of a background, Magneto’s offspring are mutants. Since FOX owns the X-Men franchise, fans were worried that their inclusion to Disney-owned Avengers franchise might not happen due to legal issues. But since Whedon announced their inclusion, everything seemed fine.

I can’t help but think Singer adding Quicksilver this late in the game is a way to thwart The Avengers because they had no legal leg to stand on to prevent the characters’ appearance in Whedon’s film. Perhaps I’m reading too much into this, but my Spidey-sense tells me otherwise.
