With all the 1980s influences used in Stranger Things, there’s little doubt that the Duffer brothers thought of Eleven as a bit of a mutant. In another universe, maybe she was a member of the X-Men—which is why this mash-up by artist Lance Schibi is so fun.
Speaking at the Edinburgh Television festival, Bryan Singer said that Legion and the other, unnamed X-Men-based TV show “will relate to future X-Men movies.” This might not work as well as he’s hoping.
Wolverine 3 won’t just be the swan song for Hugh Jackman’s take on Wolverine—apparently it’ll be the last time his co-star Patrick Stewart takes on the Xavier mantle, too.
Using liquid nitrogen inside a thermos with a tube sticking out of it, YouTube’s TheBackyardScientist created a crude home-made freeze ray. To see what it was really capable of, and to answer a question that has been puzzling comic book fans for years, he then blasted it at a flamethrower to see which simulated…
I’ve given them time to ship out multiple story arcs, find their footing and sketch out whatever themes and big ideas they’re aiming for. But there’s no denying it any more: The X-Men line just isn’t exciting nowadays.
Superhero comics are full of death-defying action... that sometimes results in actual death. And for every epic, brilliant final stand, there's a death that's less than satisfying. There are plenty of candidates for the worst superhero and villain deaths of all time. But here are the 10 stupidest ways that comics…
It’s 2016, and things are looking pretty grim. As prognosticators of the future, io9 is here to assess the present, and remind everyone that as bad things are, they can always get much, much worse—and they are much, much worse in mirror universes and parallel worlds. Here are 16 alternate realities that make the…
Legion just telekinetically moved to the top of our “Must-See” list for this fall. The FX show—about David Haller, an incredibly powerful mutant who doesn’t realize the things he sees, hears and does are real—is completely unlike any other Marvel or superhero show, and it looks intriguing as hell. Watch this first…
Ever since Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” universe began, tensions between the Inhumans and Mutants of the Marvelverse have been high. Scott Summers supposedly died doing something to majorly tick the Inhumans off. Terrigen mists are sterilizing and poisoning mutants. And now, those tensions are boiling over.
“Whoa. You’re Captain America.” Scott Lang’s hilarious awe of Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War goes both ways later this week at Comic-Con, as each superhero is getting an awesome, exclusive new Mondo poster that’ll first be available at the event and we’re the first to bring them to the world.
The X-men spinoff film starring everyone’s favorite card-throwing Cajun has been in the works for a while and has changed hands so many times that it’s been unclear as to where it is in the development process. It was supposed to come out in October of this year, and so far we don’t have anything.
Oh, and Mutants will be fighting Inhumans because of course they will. But after months of uncertainty as to what went down with Cyclops in the run up to Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” reboot, a new miniseries will explore the events that lead to Scott Summers’ mysterious disappearance.
In May, we got a look at Dan Stevens looking more moody than superpowered in the above first publicity still for Legion, the forthcoming show from Noah Hawley (Fargo) about the X-Men character of the same name. Now Hawley’s shared a photo of Stevens, as David “Legion” Haller, looking a bit more agitated.
Two fundamental rules in most science labs are 1) always have protective eyewear on and 2) don’t stick your face next to stuff that’s on fire. For these reasons, Sufficiently Advanced’s flamethrower welding helmet presents a conundrum.
For some reason every superpower has to come with a downside. The X-Men, for example, are rejected from society for being mutants. But why can’t it just be win-win? It turns out it can, you just need to be a mad scientist like Colin Furze, and build your superpowers yourself.
Good news, X-fans: Fox is going forward with the first of its X-Men universe TV shows, Legion, and has given it a series order. Check out the first picture of Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as David Haller (who may or may not be Professor X’s estranged son) above!
Basically, imagine that Bryan Singer is Michael Corleone and the X-Men movies are the mob. Only he’s not upset so much as he is resigned and kind of happy about it.
The X-Men movies just can’t quit Wolverine, it seems. Hugh Jackman’s take on the world’s most beloved Canadian (okay, maybe next to Justin Trudeau?) has managed to show up in every main X-Men movie, whether in a starring role or as a cameo. But it turns out his savage appearance in Apocalypse could’ve been even bigger.
The latest X-Men movie is sadly a bit of a bummer, with grand scale but no soul. But what if Fox had included it in its plans to slap an R-rating on every superhero movie it had going in the wake of Deadpool’s smashing success? It probably wouldn’t be as goofy as this parody trailer presumes.
And Bryan Singer reveals a disappointing secret from X-Men Apocalypse. The Walking Dead begins casting a big character from the comics. Another actor has already met with James Bond producers about the role. Plus, new pictures from the set of Power Rangers, and more footage from Independence Day: Resurgence. Spoilers…
