Rogue gets to be in X-Men: Days of Future Past after all

With the seemingly endless amount of big name stars and characters in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's hard not to believe some of those characters would be left on the cutting room floor. One of those chara...

Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

It looks like they've saved the best trailer for last. As X-Men: Days of Future Past gets closer to its release later this May, we finally have a trailer that is as great looking as the first one. We have a good amount of plot without spoiling any of the details (such as Wolverine's mode of time travel), some neat character shout outs (and a good, hard look at Quicksilver in stupid looking googles motion), and the set pieces are full of zazz. Oh and those Sentinels look fantastic. 

Fox may have trouble with its posters, but these trailers really make the X-Men pop. I'm hoping the film can live up to this. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23rd.

And while you're waiting, why not give the Flixist X-Cast a listen? It's good stuff.

X-Men: Days of Future Past gets the worst posters

Apocalypse showing up in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse?
by Matthew Razak

UPDATE: According to Twitter, Fox's next X-Men movie is titled X-Men: Apocalypse and is releasing May 27, 2016. No other details have been released at the moment. Original story below.

Are somewhat obscure Tweets a valid news source? It seems like we're getting bigger and bigger stories that way as directors and actors Tweet whatever they want without any care to the fanboy pandemoneum it may cause. Case in point, Zack Snyder's recent Tweet that read: "#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!"

I mean, this one isn't too hard to figure out, cut come on! That's just mean. Snyder is most likely telling us that the next X-Men film will release in 2016 and that Apocalypse will be in it. It's weird, though, that two big announcements (three if you count Snyder possibly confirming himself as director) like this landed in a simple Tweet. Villains are usually especially hidden until closer to the film's completion to help drive up speculation and interest. Wonder if the Fox people are scrambling like mad.

Then again, maybe Snyder is just Tweeting his dream for the next film.

First trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
First trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

The X-Men films are in a bit of a pickle. After three films, two Wolverine standalones, and one reboot, it leaves X-Men's story an overall mess. X-Men: Days of Future Past is attempting to do something that's only been previously done in comics: bring its universes together with one big story. 

Uniting the giant cast of four different X-Men films (and reuniting the franchise with director Bryan Singer), the first trailer for the first class sequel, Days of Future Past looks gorgeous. Wolverine has to hop dimensions and the whatnot (as his consciousness is sent back in time to help stop the Sentinels), two Magnetos, two Xaviers, Storm's cool hair, and it's all wrapped up in one neat package. X-Men: Days of Future Past confuses you in theaters May 23rd next year.

NRH's Weekly Analysis: X-Men something something, Part 2 photo
NRH's Weekly Analysis: X-Men something something, Part 2
by Nathan Hardisty

So last week I took a look at the original X-Men film trilogy and so, as promised, here's some thoughts on the following films. They're an odd bunch; two solo ventures and a complete reboot/prequel/fanservice extravaganza. X-Men has always been about diversity though and, well, I guess the extends into time periods, genres and basic narrative structures. Here I'll look at X-Men First Class, Origins Wolverine and The Wolverine, with Days of Future Past most definitely reserved for a Part 3. It's nice to plan that far ahead.

After the absolute travesty that was The Last Stand, which ruined the social and cultural messages of X-Men whilst also destroying all ounce of character, there was a growing sense of animosity among the comic book legionnaires. In order to try and bring the series back to a quality standard they decided that making a X-Men Meets Brett Ratner! film would be perfect. Half biopic and half superhero action. Except that, thankfully, doesn't exist. Given quantum mechanics and parallel universes, however, that thing does exist in some possible universe... which is a shame.

Shall we start actually talking X-Men?
