But will it blend?
PsyGuy - 5/7/2013, 4:37 PM
I'm so glad it's being shot in 3D and not just converted!

After X-Men and X2, I know if Singers in the directors chair it won't suck
ScabbyJ - 5/7/2013, 4:51 PM
Sounds good!
BboiBlack - 5/7/2013, 4:54 PM
Superman Returns and all the films singer made after that.
KidGoku - 5/7/2013, 4:59 PM
Just rewatched X-Men and X2. This movie will be worth it.
EdgyOutsider - 5/7/2013, 5:07 PM
In Singer I trust. He brought us X-Men and X2. If it weren't for him, this franchise would never be as good as it is despite the missteps in The Last Stand and Origins. Days of Future past will be amazing. Hey, Levitikuz, Singer is a hack? Why not take a look at Zack Snyder. He's the hack.
Superior - 5/7/2013, 5:07 PM
spideyboy, yeah and what two movies came out after those?
DrDoom - 5/7/2013, 5:14 PM
X-Men 1 and 2 are boring and not nearly as well crafted as some people think. Singer's way off his game.
Fantine - 5/7/2013, 5:15 PM
I dont see the problem with Singer. He made The Usual Suspects, he put comic books on the map with X-Men, then showed us they could be amazing films with X2. Valkriye was a good movie and Jack The Giant Slayer wasnt horrible.
marvel72 - 5/7/2013, 5:15 PM
love x-men 2 one of the best marvel/fox movies,don't really rate that highly an other comic book that comes out of fox.

but this if it features 25ft sentinels & most of the original cast,this could be the best x-men film ever!
MrMartinMarvel - 5/7/2013, 5:19 PM
What was that? I can't can't hear you over my lack of interest.
ComixBookGuy - 5/7/2013, 5:21 PM

I never understood why Biff was so afraid of Principal Strickland. He didn't have any regard for authority in any other capacity, especially with his Grandmother (who apparently was his legal guardian). But every time Strickland came around, he would back down and try to hide his bullying behavior. It just seemed inconsistent with his other character traits.
TheIlluminati - 5/7/2013, 5:33 PM
Why does everyone hate on Singer? Its not like he made a crappy Superman movie
HBarnill - 5/7/2013, 5:42 PM
Ugh. 3D. CGI. Two of my most hated things happening to films these days.
ParisSun - 5/7/2013, 5:46 PM
Why does every movie need to be in 3D? It's so overused. I can't think of one reason, IM3 needed to be in 3D. Most movies don't need it.
kemuael - 5/7/2013, 5:57 PM
hmm well we shall see ?
DanteSparda - 5/7/2013, 6:11 PM
Yeah in Singer I trust, anyone can say what they want about his movies but the only ones that count for this are X1, X2 and First Class (where he was a producer) and I love those movies and I dont see a reason foe anyone who didnt liked those films to be posting in this article, bunch of whiners.
Jollem - 5/7/2013, 6:19 PM
^didn't you know it is okay and accepted and encouraged to poop on anything not marvel studios?
TheBaroness89 - 5/7/2013, 6:26 PM
liked X1 and X2...not really understanding the love fest for First Class- with the exceptional performances of McAvoy and Fassbender aside it was meh. Wasted use of the Hellfire Club,the un-original five members of the X-Men and for some reason Alex Summers is now older than Scott and Mystique grew up with Xavier as opposed to his half brother Juggernaut.
So hopefully Singer fixes the mess that was First Class with Days of Future Past...he is using time travel so that always fixes everything I suppose. Fingers crossed.
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 6:40 PM
I agree with everyone on how 3D and CGI can be overused unless the 3D actually has a purpose in the film.
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 6:44 PM
However I'm really looking forward to this film, I even heard in a rumor article that a certain X-Men character we all want in the film will be seen alongside Storm. But then again its just a rumor so...yeah.

sad face
blkyank - 5/7/2013, 6:58 PM
@grabass

Biff backed down from Strickland because he knew that if it came down to it, that guy would have beat the shit out of him. Back in the the day you had alot more "He man" types working in the school system as gym teachers,Principles,Janitors and bus drivers.

Most of those guys were Veterans of World War 2,Korea and later Nam.They didn't take shit off the kids like everybody does now.So what if your a football jock,that Principle likely survived Iwo Jima or Omaha Beach.You think he's gonna be afraid of some punk kid?

Singer will make another Debacle...

Anyone remember the Superman Returns Debacle...

In Singer I DO NOT TRUST...
AnimatedTdot - 5/7/2013, 9:15 PM
since its SHOT in 3d ill go see it. that conversion bs has to go.
Logan5 - 5/7/2013, 10:48 PM

"Singer will make another Debacle...

Anyone remember the Superman Returns Debacle...

In Singer I DO NOT TRUST..."

Wow! :-P
Logan5 - 5/7/2013, 10:50 PM
Wow meaning I'm laughing at desparate measures or innocent youth.
Newbus - 5/7/2013, 11:19 PM
This movie looks like an expensive production, plus a big cast. I wonder how much they're getting paid?

And still no hint of the sentinels?

MightyZeus - 5/8/2013, 12:26 AM
I think there will be sentinels.
Logan5 - 5/8/2013, 2:04 AM
I'm so pissed with Berry and her "finagling/in the same camp" with Ratner in her character needing more screentime to deem her worthy to return for the 3rd obomination that was. Foster playing Angel? Foster playing Angel? The Battleship/almost Thor, HB'hO True Blood regular is your cast for Angel. He was in Zoolander and acting since '99.., so totally possible.

Any(not really, but Halle is pathetic) hungry black acctress with an accent is Storm. Michonne was a nobody before the show..., at first she was over the top, but I've actually oddly enough fallen in with the producers of TWD. I liked the Carl/Michonne episode for their portion.., the other was spoiled either to bad writing or a contractual deadline closing near.

@TheRealRemyLebeau

I've known 3 Remy's in my life.., all through film and all from PR or Costa Rica ironically, and I literally wouldn't even say the word "agua" in a slowed down, un-rhetorical context for any of those deadbeat dads if they were on fire or just really parched. :-P Poor kids.., father's never home.., sugar boogers on nostils at 1pm labs and stuff, one of my many experiences with "the deserved, or mistreated".., etc.

jimoakley666 - 5/8/2013, 2:52 AM
What details can we glean from this pic. Come on, eagle eyed readers.

Really bloody looking forward to this movie.
Nomis1800 - 5/8/2013, 3:40 AM
