I finally got around to watching 2017's Logan a few days ago. I’m glad I did—I have my complaints but in the main I think it’s the first X-Men film to live up to the potential of the first two Bryan Singer films—mind you, I haven’t seen the Brett Ratner movie or the first two solo Wolverine movies but I feel…
So last week, Marvel revealed that Jean Grey would lead a brand new team of X-Men in a book called X-Men Red. Despite my insistence that the team be entirely made up of Jean Grey, Teen Jean, Rachel Summers, Hope Summers, and Madelyn Pryor, Marvel apparently decided to do something different and released the team…
So the first trailer for The New Mutants came out and it looks both terrifying and amazing. And while the setting of the film (a hospital that looks right out of my nightmares) is completely different from the comics, the characters themselves look pretty faithful.
The X-Men have always been a metaphor for minorities, but aside from a few lines here and there (including the famous “Have you tried not being a mutant?”), the movies have pretty much glossed over that. To be fair, a lot of X-Men comics themselves gloss over the fact to simply try and tell compelling superhero…
It’s been four months since ResurrXion began, so let’s see what the X-Men are all up to right now and how their books are doing. (I’ll do another post on the Inhumans, too, but right now let’s focus on the X-Men.)
X-Men: Blue is the X-book that is about the original five X-Men from the ‘60s who became time-displaced and now live in the present. That may sound like a complicated premise for an X-book — but you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Reports are coming in that actress and model Anita Pallenberg has passed away, aged 73. The cause of death is currently unknown.
As revealed by producer Lauren Shuler Donner, Fox’s X-Men show, headed by Matt Nix, will be called Gifted.
Logan is not a superhero movie. Heck, Logan isn’t even an X-Men movie — after all, all the X-Men are dead except for Logan and Charles. No, Logan is something else: Logan is a Western.
As noted by Katharine Trendacosta in a recent article, Fox has lost their way with the lucrative X-Men franchise. If they ever really knew what to do with this team, they’ve obviously lost the thread now. But what should they do to recover? How can our heroes triumph in the face of this new threat?!?!
Hey O-deck! So like many of you, I’m pretty pumped about the new Logan film, but I haven’t been following comics for some time so I had a question that maybe you can answer.
Back on January 12th, Comic Book Resources reported that in addition to Deadpool 2 and The New Mutants, it appeared Fox was ready to start pre-production on another X-Men film, this one titled X-Men: Supernova. After a short period of speculation that this might be the “X-Men in space” film that Bryan Singer wanted to…
It must be nerve-racking trying to make a movie about amazing phenomena these days when every month seems to bring the spectacle to end all spectacles. 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse is an adequate X-Men film. It retreads a lot of familiar territory and has some lousy dialogue but there’s nothing especially bad about it, it…
So the X-Men: Apocalypse Gag Reel was released recently and watching it, I noticed a few things:
Welcome my friends to this week’s edition of our cheap digital comics, after almost a month away! (Sorry.) Let’s just jump right into it, shall we?
I haven’t done one of these in a while so since it was a Friday, I figured it would be a fun way to end the week.
Happy Thursday friends! Here is this week’s Midweek Trivia and we’re going to look at the Apocalypse. No, not the end of the world or the Book Of Revelation, but the classic Xmen villain whose movie has just come out.
So X-Men Apocalypse seems to open in theaters in May 27... however some of us influential people (Mexicans in general) got to watch it since Thursday, may 19th. It’s about time we start reacting. This reaction post is spoiler-free. The comments on the other hand are no man’s land and free for all. Thread carefully.
In the early 1980s, there was only one place where teenagers could learn how to shoot lasers out of their eyes and program Apple IIes — Professor Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters! This retro ad for X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t feel entirely legit — I don’t remember kids who weren’t skaters saying “rad” back in 1983…
