Continuing the proliferation of tweeted pics from films currently in production, Bryan Singer has shown of another picture.
Bryan Singer loves to tease X-Men fans with his tweets. On Friday, Singer tweeted what could only be the exterior of the Cerebro set. For the forgetful or unfamiliar, Cerebro is the spherical telepathic conductor that Professor Xavier uses to find every mutant on the planet; it was a crucial plot point in X2 and we saw it in a crude, stripped down version for X-Men: First Class.
Hey there, you sweaty masses of geekery, how's your week been? New visitor to the column? Hello! This is Panels to Frames, and I'm here to talk about comic book movies.
The new Wolverine movie, aptly (and somewhat confusingly for some people, it would seem) titled "The Wolverine" is almost upon us, and promises to be a very different film to the critically annihilated "X-men Origins: Wolverine" from a while back. To be honest, after that and X-Men: The Last Stand, Wolvie has some ground to recover.
Bryan Singer enjoys his tweet-teases. Knee-deep in X-Men: Days of Future Past pre-production, the director has shared an array of tweet-sized scoops, including cast announcements, photos of sets and props, and now concept art.
The Wolverine began the week with two terrible posters, following that up with two days of teasing teasers for teasers (which we didn't bother to cover here because fuck that), we finally have the full length trailers for The Wolverine.
Snikt! Plenty of Wolverine news for you to devour today. But hold back your excitement for a moment, as first we need to look at what I can only describe as excruciatingly bad marketing.
Bryan Singer, always a bit of a tease, has once again taken to Twitter to post some tantalising images. This time we see a plain wall, plastered in the headshots of his cast, or at least some of the cast. On the wall we see a lot of familiar and expected faces, along with some new and/or unexpected ones.
Very occasionally there comes a comic book movie which it takes me a while to get around to watching. One such case is X-Men: First Class, which I've finally watched tonight after never getting around to it until now. How can a guy who writes a comic book movie column have not seen First Class until now? Well, aside from some pretty major changes to my lifestyle and available free time and cash, I kinda didn't want to. I hate prequels and reboots. HATE THEM.
With more and more of the cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past being confirmed, it seemed that director Bryan Singer was hell-bent on getting the entire original cast to return. One member who has so far not been confirmed is Halle Berry as Ororo Munroe/Storm. That could be about to change though, as Shadow & Act have recently spoken to her regarding the subject.
He's 44 now, and over a decade after first donning the adamantium claws of Wolverine, Hugh Jackman is still making all men look terrible.
