X-Men: Days of Future Past, in my opinion, was the pinnacle of the X-Men cinematic franchise. I don’t know anyone who could have done a better job of bringing together two timelines and killing the movie that everyone hated in the franchise.
They finally gave us a look into what the next movie in the X-Men franchise will look like. Honestly, I dig it. Cast is top notch and Bryan Singer is sticking with an X-Men film. Because we all know what happened when he switched sides. There really isn’t anything I’m worried about here. I’m sad we don’t get to see Sir Patrick Stewart or Sir Ian McKellen again (jeez, still with the knights), but McAvoy and Fassbender will do. Not to mention we get to have another Evan Peter’s deliciously amazing Quicksilver moments:
Also, all the actors portraying the younger versions of the X-Men we’ve come to love and hate, *cough* “Cyclops”, look great, especially Nightcrawler:
Anyway, I’ve been looking forward to this for a long while, so even though 2015 had Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Fantastic Four and The Martian (what, are you really going to argue that Matt Daemon wasn’t a superhero in that movie when we had to include the Fantastic Four movie in this list?!), it looks like 2016 is shaping up to be pretty epic superhero movie wise itself:
- Captain America: Civil War
- Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice
- X-Men: Apocalypse (just look up there for the trailer, lazy readers)
- Suicide Squad
The only thing we have left is to talk about how bad Apocalypse’s costume is, and we’re trying not to beat a dead horse, but c’mon Singer! Did your costume department even look at the comics? As many have pointed out, cosplayers can even do Apocalypse more justice.
Hope you Bleary-Eyed fans enjoyed the trailer and are as excited as we are for 2016 and its stellar lineup of superhero films.
