Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley is getting ready to debut season two of his X-Men series Legion. While we’re anticipating picking David Haller’s story back up, the first teaser trailer goes in a very different direction. Yup, we’re going meta.
After the numerous production delays it’s had, the future of Channing Tatum’s long-beleaguered Gambit solo film might seem like it’s in peril, but Fox is still confident the X-Men spinoff will be in theaters next year.
Brian Michael Bendis might have recently left Marvel Comics to write for DC, but he hasn’t completely abandoned the Marvel universe. Bendis and Deadpool director Tim Miller are coming together to make an X-Men film, which looks to be the long-rumored Kitty Pryde spin-off.
The Gifted, Fox’s mutant drama, has a dilemma. You see, one of the stars is Lorna (Emma Dumont), aka Polaris, a mutant with a pretty serious bombshell in her past. Her dad? It’s Magneto. Only, uh, The Gifted can’t talk about it.
It’s disingenuous to pretend that Jean Grey’s been “dead” in Marvel’s comics for some time now, considering that her time-displaced younger self has been leading a team of teen mutants in X-Men: Blue. But it also hasn’t quite been accurate to say the “real” Jean as been alive, either.
Because comic books are basically just illustrated soap operas with much more realistic plot lines (fight me), superhero weddings are always something of a Very Big Deal™—the sort of big to-dos that get turned into semi-major events. Take, for example, the marriage between the X-Men’s Ororo Munroe and T’Challa, the…
If the X-Men and the Fantastic Four are entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige doesn’t know about it.
Chris Claremont isn’t exactly sure just how many times Jean Grey and the Phoenix have returned from the dead, but when we spoke with the comics giant recently about the character’s impending return to Marvel’s books, he responded only with a heavy, slightly-annoyed sigh.
The Juggernaut. Real name, Cain Marko. Inveterate bruiser. Step-brother of Professor Xavier. Weird meme.
Looking back on The Gifted’s first season, it’s charming to think that at one point in time, we assumed the show was about a new generation of heroes chosen by the X-Men to save mutantkind from humanity. For all its comic book-y trappings, The Gifted was never really a show about superheroes.
The months ahead were slated to be big ones for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men universe, with three different mutant-centric films on the docket. But in a surprise move, the studio has decided to switch up the timetable on when we should expect to see a certain merc with the mouth and his mutant pals.
At any given point in time, studios are juggling multiple projects in various stages of development. With some films, the path from inception to theatrical release is a straightforward one. But for others, like Gambit, the road’s... rocky. And that film has just lost its third director.
The ink may still be drying on the massive deal between Disney and Fox that’s bringing mutants back to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean Fox has any plans on slowing down production on one of the last X-Men movies it may make: A spinoff starring Kitty Pryde.
Marvel buying back the film rights to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool was once only the stuff of nerd dreams, but now that those dreams have become reality, we should really consider just what this reunion might entail. We may very well see an Avengers vs. X-Men film one day, but that might not be a good thing.
Bryan Singer has been removed as executive producer from the FX series Legion, at his request, following allegations of rape and sexual assault.
If you haven’t been watching Fox’s The Gifted, you’ve been missing out on some of the best X-Men stories the franchise has ever had. The good news is that there’s still time to catch up before the season finale. The better news is that the show’s coming back for a second season, and that’s incredibly promising.
This week’s episode of The Gifted, “3 X 1" is unique from all of the rest because it definitely feels like the entire series might actually be a stealthy supervillain origin story. The Stepford Cuckoos are playing an incredibly long game that no one else in the Mutant Underground seems to realize.
Comic books are their own worst enemies. The very same narrative complexity and density that pulls some readers in and turns them into lifelong fans can also turn people off—people who see comics’ sprawling storytelling style as a barrier to entry. This is particularly true of Marvel’s X-Men.
After weeks of teasing the public with reports of false starts and stops, Disney and Fox have settled on a massive $52 billion deal in which all of 21st Century’s film rights are being sold to the House of Mouse. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is about to get a whole lot more, well, fantastic.
In an attempt to cash in on the original Wolverine’s popularity without rushing to bring him back from the dead too soon, Marvel’s recently introduced a whole slew of Logan’s “children”—clones created using his DNA. The youngest and most well-adjusted of these clones is a girl named Gabby.
