X-Men

In just a couple of weeks Fox will air their quasi-X-Men spinoff TV series, Legion. The show, starring Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza, does not take place in the same universe as the one seen in the film franchise.

However, the one being created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) does. The untitled show will center on a world where people hate mutants and sentinels exist. Now it’s been announced that a pilot for that show has been ordered, and more details are coming out about it along with confirmation that longtime X-Men film director Bryan Singer will helm the pilot. Check it out below.

Next X-Men Film Could Launch Mutants Into Space

X-Men Dark Phoenix

After exploring major events through respective decades on Earth, the next X-Men film, which is said to take place during the 1990s, could take the mutant superheroes to a place where no X-Men has gone before: space.

Bryan Singer, who is still on the X-Men: Apocalypse promotional tour – read our review of the film here – has talked a little bit about where the sequel could go. Given that First Class took place in the 60s, Days Of Future Past in the 70s, and Apocalypse in the 80s, obviously the 90s would be that next logical choice. But it should be interesting what major event of that decade the film decides to use to move the plot, but if what Singer says is true, then it’s quite possible that the X-Men could find themselves in the final frontier dealing and contending with a force unlike anything they have ever seen before. More on the story here below.

“Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.”

If there’s one thing director Bryan Singer achieves with X-Men: Apocalypse, it’s channeling the excess and indulgence of the 1980s. The ninth installment in the X-Men series has too much of everything, including thinly written characters, stale end-of-the-world scenarios, and overblown CGI annihilation.

X-Men: Apocalypse starring Olivia Munn

20th Century Fox’s X-Men film universe is their comic-book shared universe flagship. Two successful film franchises have come out of its success, with another one titled New Mutants, from director Josh Boone, to come. Since Deadpool‘s success at the box office, fans have expressed their interest in seeing more R-rated comic book film adaptations. Even star Ryan Reynolds wanted to see an R-rated version of the X-Force, which sees notable X-Men teammates like Deadpool, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Archangel, and Psylocke unite to take a more proactive stance against threats to mutant kind. Most of these characters will appear in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. And that brings us to Olivia Munn, who is now talking about how she turned down a role to be in Deadpool and ended up being in Apocalypse. More on the story below.

X-Men Apocalypse

The world needs the X-Men, again. Fox has just released the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Though the title heroes of Marvel have faced many mutant and human threats before, they have never faced one as powerful as the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac). Now, after awakening from a great slumber, Apocalypse has gained the powers of a god, and recruits Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and three other powerful mutants to be his Horseman to help him cleanse the Earth of humans.

So it’s up to Professor Xavier’s (James McAvoy) students to stop them from succeeding. Foes are now allies and former friends believe in the gospel according to Apocalypse. Check out the full trailer below.

X-Men: Apocalypse Header

While the titular villain of X-Men: Apocalypse has received some harsh criticism for not looking like his comic book counterpart, fans were still be excited by the fact that the upcoming film, which will end the First Class trilogy, would feature Marvel’s first mutant. We haven’t seen much in terms of footage since San Diego Comic-Con last summer. Maybe that was because everyone was just hyped to see Deadpool, which got a momentous positive reaction by everyone in Hall H.

Now we have a slight idea of when the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be released. According to the film’s producer, Simon Kinberg, it will be attached to theatrical showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. More on the story below.

HellFire Club X-Men

In August, during the TCAs, Fox was negotiating a deal with Marvel to produce X-Men TV shows, following Marvel’s success with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, and The CW’s Arrow and The Flash for Warner Bros. Television.

Fox currently has Gotham, the Batman prequel that centers on James Gordon’s early career as a Gotham City detective and a young Bruce Wayne’s journey to becoming the Dark Knight. But it appears the studio wants more, and is going to dip into a Marvel property that they already own. A new report says that Fox has made some in-house hires to work on two TV series: one centered on Professor X’s son called Legion, and another on the villainous Hellfire Club called Hellfire. They will also be working with Marvel on these two X-Men shows. More on the story below.
