We get a first look at the new Summer Movie Preview cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring the iconic characters from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This epic is set for only one film, but will be packed with many mutants and a rich storyline of time-travel, assassination, redemption, salvation, and betrayal. Just who does any of these things is the real question. I have to admit that I miss Rebecca Romijn a bit, but J.Law will do.
Dave Letterman (my homie) is retiring and they are already circling the carcass. Dave Letterman has truly influenced a generation of comedians, which is amazing for a “comedian” who would probably classify himself as marginal. Dave was an inspiration for me in his late night incarnations for NBC and CBS. To me, he surpasses Carson because of his ambition to shine a light on real world issues, aside from spotlighting new and up and coming comedians. He has started the careers of a few (Romano and James), but he has more so brought issues to light and questioned the absurdity of frustrating political conflagrations. Letterman is an institution unto himself and should be feted by every late night progenitor existing today. I’m sure he will be.
My vote is Amy Poehler as CBS would steal a Lorne Michaels protege and would position her against her very good friend Jimmy Fallon and Kimmel. Poehler would be brilliant.
Click the image for full resolution. I have doubts about the look of Quicksilver, but understand that he appears to wear many different costumes in this movie. “Tell me the last thing you remember….” Can’t Wait!!!
Bryan Singer had a short ask me anything social network session for a half an hour today. One interesting note is that among all the mutants people noted so far, there was apparently one that had been missed, even though there’s already a picture of him floating around the internet.
Singer mentioned how much he liked working with the mutant ‘Ink’ as well as other new muties. Ink is intruiging because of his ‘powers’ and how they have been used in the comics. Could he play a significant role in the storyline? I think so!
Yesterday we received a preview of the upcoming film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and now we are getting more and more photos pouring out of the woodwork showing us glimpses of the upcoming epic. HT to Empire and Entertainment Weekly.
Because you asked for it America!
We lost a legend today and one of the few American authors I read with some consistency. Out of Sight is still one of my favorite stories told ever.
Side note: could the movie’s ending inspired all the Marvel movies of this decade by giving us a Sam Jackson cameo as Lazarus?!
The Beast Is Unleashed On Magneto In New Days Of Future Past Set Pics – Comic Book Therapy.
Some cool new set pics of an apparent confrontation between Beast and Magneto. Mystique also appears to be involved somehow. Maybe Hank is still pining for Mystique and Magneto gets in his way.
Is this going to be the Sci Fi reboot of Hope Floats? I hope so!
Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Michael Fassbender in between camera set ups. I hope we get to see some more awesome avenging Magneto in this movie. The bar sequence in First Class is one of the coolest Superhero movie scenes ever.
