Is Fox’s X-Men Show Using Age of X As Source Material? Art by Olivier Coipel Since writing a post covering some character confirmations in Fox’s Matt Nix penned new X-Men TV show, under the working title of Gifted, I have been building a bit of an idea. Most X-Men films have loosely based themselves, or taken inspiration, or thematic ideas, from the comics story arcs as a source. X2 has elements of God Loves, Man Kills, The Last Stand used Dark Phoenix Saga and Gifted, Days of Future Past had, well, Days of Future Past.

The X-Men Cinematic Universe is definitely a unique beast among the superhero universes.

Hugh Jackman Would Have a Say in Who Gets to Play Wolverine Next By now, everyone knows that Logan is Hugh Jackman’s last go-round as Wolverine. It’s tough to see him go — he’s arguably the protagonist of the original X-Men trilogy and was always a welcome presence in the new crop of movies, but he’s a big star now, and Logan is a tone-perfect way to round out his career as that character.

'Trolls 2' Is on Its Way For an animated movie inspired by a line of plastic dolls, Trolls proved to be quite lively and entertaining. On the big screen, the small creatures were adorable as they sang and danced their way through life. Princess Poppy, voiced by Anna Kendrick, was an apt heroine since she combined a positive attitude with the courage to take action when other Trolls were captured by the unhappy Bergens. As the voice of the grumpy survivalist Branch, Justin Timberlake served as the perfect...Read MoreRead Comments

The Lego Batman Movie Is My Favourite Batman Movie To Date, And No I Don’t Mean That In Some Pseudo Hipster Ironic Fashion. It Just Is. The LEGO Batman Movie 9 Reviewer Users 6.5 (1 vote) BC Rating Summary It is remarkably different to The Lego Movie that featured the character. The Lego Movie was a clever piece of analysis of the human condition, emphasising the importance of not being bound by authority, of play, of empathy and understanding. Lego Batman movie has none of these things.

Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has revealed three new LEGO Dimensions expansion packs. But most importantly we get our first look at The Goonies Level Pack — that’s right, Goonies LEGO minifigs!

First Official Trailer for 'I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore' "So furious!" Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for the feature directorial debut of actor Macon Blair (seen in Green Room and Blue Ruin) titled I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore. The film just premiered last night at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival to mostly rave reviews from many critics.

‘Captain Underpants’ First Look Photo: This Might Be Your Kid’s Most Anticipated Superhero Movie of 2017 If you’re an adult, your most highly anticipated superhero movies of 2017 probably include the hard-R Logan, the grim and gritty Justice League, maybe the playful Spider-Man: Homecoming if you’re feeling young at heart. But if you’re a small child, that list might be topped by Captain Underpants, an animated feature based on the long-running book series by Dav Pilkey. Normally, it’d seem a bad sign for the film’s own director to describe his leading man as “sheer stupidity,” but in this case it’s a positive — we are, after all, talking abo
