Marvel Studios isn’t the company releasing comic book movies this year, Fox is intent on impressing us with the biggest mutant movie of them all, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Since its announcement there have been a couple different viral campaigns, one called The Bent Bullet and the other based around Trask Industries. Now, we have a new one to share with you called 25Moments.com, take some time to explore it yourself because there are some interesting tidbits in there. Below you will find a short video and pics from the site.
For those of you who want to talk about what’s next in the X-Men movie world, director Bryan Singer has some insight for you into the next X-movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. The best news to come out of this all is that we will see the return of Nightcrawler, who hasn’t been around since X2. Apocalypse will be centered around four main characters, Prof X, Magneto, Mystique, and Beast who will be played by their younger actor counterparts as the films start to transition into the X-Men: First Class cast of characters. Singer also wants to explore the mutants at different ages and also move into showing the team during the 80’s. I really like this approach to the films, but it also looks as if Apocalypse will somewhat loosely follow the Age of Apocalypse arc from the comics. In an interview with EW, Singer had the following to say about the film:
Singer is also hoping to bring in more mutants that he wasn’t able to “squeeze” into Days of Future Past, like Nightcrawler and Gambit. What do you think Towelites? Are you X-cited for the slew of mutant movies on the way? Do you want to see more movies based on the individual characters or just team movies? Sound off in the comments below!!
Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23rd and Apocalypse is scheduled for May 27th, 2016!
