That's the rumor, anyway.
That's actually really creepy.
I accept your apology.
Looking at wikipedia, it doesn't seem that bad.
So Matthew Vaughn is out of the project... but Bryan Singer is back!
rumored appearances by Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Famke Janssen and Ian McKellen
This just gets better and better
Cool. Let's hope Singer gets to direct SW!
He's probably going to be busy with the movie he just agreed to direct, ie, this one.
Singer being back is fantastic news. X2 is still one of the top 5 superhero flicks ever made. Hopefully this and The Wolverine can further recover from the X3/Wolverine debacle, as well as FC's wavy continuity.
Sounds great to me.
Vaughan was great but Singer can make magic with X-Men. Really excited.
A couple of tweets Singer posted this morning:
"I'd like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, & Nicholas Hoult to #XMEN for #DaysOfFuturePast"
"Thrilled to announce @ianmckellen118 & @SirPatStew are joining the cast of #XMEN #DaysOfFuturePast #magneto #professorX More to come..."
Official confirmation of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen!
Edit: 2nd thought: Patrick Stewart is on Twitter? *goes quickly to follow him*
No confirmation of Jackman?
If Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie isn't #1, you are I are through Quest.
wow big news! I hope they get Jackman and run with this beotch
I don't know if I'd hold it at number 1, or any particular film, only because there's such a diverse range of flavors now for great comic book films that it's really hard to say one is definitely better than another- especially since one's preference for particular characters can influence that so much.
Superman I has the camp but also some amazing gravitas (and Reaves has yet to be topped in the role) and legendary score.
The Dark Knight has the epic urban crime thriller mixed with some amazing performances.
X2 has some wonderful character interplay. Iron Man has a great 'building the hero'.. And The Avengers manages to have some of almost all of the above.
And, with tastes and variety being what they are in the genre, one can swap out a couple on an individual basis, etc.
I am glad I am not the only one that bothered.
Spiderman 2 is the clear leader in superhero films. It is heretofore unsurpassed.
But that doesn't even have Will Smith...
Sorry, was jumping back and forth between some EU tabs and this thread when i wrote that, had SW author Michael Reaves on the brain.
As for Spider-Man 2, I was never as blown away by it as others were at the time. I felt it was stronger in some areas than SM1 but weaker in others. And now, after having seen Garfield as Parker in ASM, I find it difficult to go back to the Raimi films and watch Tobey in the role without laughing sometimes (he's still fine in some scenes, though).
