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.
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
Apocalypse is a great X-Men villain. And I really enjoyed X-Men: First Class and loved X-Men: Days of Future Past. But I’m not sure what to make of this first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Nothing really grabs me about it and I hate the look of Apocalypse. Maybe you’ll feel differently.
That said, I’m sure I’ll be seeing it in the theaters come May 27, 2016.
I love the works of William Shakespeare.
Michael Fassbender is an actor of phenomenal talent.
And soon, we can see one performing in the other’s work…that’s right, Zombie Shakespeare will be in a new play written by Fassbender!
Or, more accurately, Fassbender did a movie version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Looks really good. My only concern is French actress Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. She’s a great actress, but I personally find French actors sometimes struggle too much with Shakespeare’s work. I would love to be wrong.
But there’s a trailer after the cut, in all the play’s violent glory.
I know Jenny will be watching the new trailer for the Danny Boyle directed, Aaron Sorkin scripted Steve Jobs movie starring Michael Fassbender. And so can you after the break.
Jenny has complained several times on the Gabbing Geek podcast about how Batman v Superman is turning into Batsoup with all the characters being cast. Maybe X-Men: Apocalypse is the next soup du jour, because after ALL the casting news of late on the next franchise installment featuring the mutie scum, we now have a new Nightcrawler.
An Oscar winner joins Michael Fassbender’s film adaptation of the best-selling video game which is now expected to premiere December 21, 2016.
All three of the new X-Men, younger versions of Jean, Storm, and Cyclops have been cast for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
The old make way for the young:
In an interview with Larry King, Patrick Stewart (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) delivered some sad news. When asked if he was going to be in the next X-Men film, Stewart replied, “No. Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.” Wow, not only is Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier not going to be in it, but McKellen’s master of magnetism Erik Lehnsherr, aka Magneto, won’t appear either. That’s a bummer, man.
Probably the right move, but I like these two so much that it still makes me a little sad.
Time travel makes all things possible. Because X-Men: Days of Future Past employed the ol’ “time travel to fix problems” move, we will see Wolverine and folliclely UNchallenged Professor X cultivating the talents of younger versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey. Such a reboot like that could only be found in….well….in an X-Men COMIC BOOK. So now, we get to recast these roles with young talent to battle Apocalypse. Who will it be???
