Oustide of The Last Stand , I’ve been a big fan of the X-Men movies. Old and new…though the new ones are techinically older than the old ones in terms of timeline. *Scratches head*
Anywho, this new film is really not grabbing me. From the horrible look of Apocalypse himself to the so-so trailers, I haven’t seen much yet that has piqued my interest. After the phenomenal Days of Future Past, I fear this one is primed to disappoint. I hope I’m wrong.
Let us know what you think of the new trailer. You can watch it after the break.
Have you seen Deadpool? If you’re reading a blog called Gabbing Geek then you probably have. If not…what is wrong with you? Go see it right now! It is funny and action packed and…don’t take the kids. It is R rated for a reason.
If you have seen Deadpool, did you stay for the post credit scene? I hope so. It may be a little low key as far as post credit scenes go, but it is really smart in terms of references. After the break, check out a video that does a great job breaking down the post credit scene as well as giving viewers that may not be familiar with the comic X-Universe some information about a character you may be seeing in Deadpool 2.
The video has no real Deadpool movie spoilers, but does show the end credit scene.
Ok, ok, it is Ryan Reynolds interviewing Hugh Jackman during the press junket for Jackman’s new film Eddie The Eagle. And it is exactly what you expect, if you are expecting hilarity. See the interview after the cut.
I’m a fan of the X-Men films, but the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse had me concerned. The commercial that aired during the Super Bowl has restored some of that faith. It looks much better than the trailer. You’ve probably seen it by now, but if not, watch it after the break.
Co-directors and gluttons for punishment The Russo Brothers have revealed they currently have 67 characters lined up to appear in the two part Avengers: Infinity War. My immediate reaction was “Holy $#@*!” That has got to include EVERYONE. The MCU regulars of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, new blood like Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange and Blank Panther. Even the TV crowd most be represented. Anyone from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, Luke Cage and/or Jessica Jones. The Captain Marvel movie is scheduled in between Infinity War Parts One and Two so you’d think she’d be involved somehow. And there are sure to be characters making their debut here as well. Sounds like a whole lot of awesome.
Joe Russo teases:
“People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of ‘Infinity War’ is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept.”
All that said, maybe we need to keep expectations a little in check. I’m sure we will see a lot of the crowd mentioned above. And the TV shows do make occasional reference to the movies so they clearly take place in the same universe unlike whatever mess DC has going on. But keep in mind the phrasing here…67 characters. There could be villains other than Thanos that appear. Aunt May is a character. Night Nurse. Agent Carter. Pepper Potts. The cop picking up Twinkies for his wife before heading over to Nakatomi Plaza. That S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent with the red shirt on that Thanos kills on an away mission. You get the point.
And it won’t be any day soon we’ll get much clarification here as Avengers: Infinity War Part One is not scheduled until May 4th, 2018.
Not even 2 minutes and 33 seconds? Because that is all you will need for this masterful super cut showcasing the trailers currently available for many of 2016’s upcoming films. Worth a watch after the cut.
