So happy with the FOX movie panel, I bet that must have been a blast to be in attendance!
So it is up to Future Xavier to send Wolverine into the past, not Kitty. I can live with that.
I guess it also makes sense to do it this way as it isn’t like the future is 2044 and the present is today. Movie Kitty could not have been alive during the 70s, and Comic Kitty would have been just a baby, as she was only 13 and a half in 1980.
Sounds like the cast gets along well.
I would love to see a Broadway show with both Magnetos. I know Stewart and McKellen did a play together years ago that must have been amazing.
Ellen Page seemed to be having fun with the actor who plays Bishop in this movie.
In other movie news, so glad the Avengers are not going into space in their sequel. Was not looking forward to that!
I know Bendis had plans for Age of Ultron for a while, as he gave Hitch like a year to get his four issues completed.
I know the movie will have absolutely nothing in common with the comic, as that seems to be a lot to put in a movie. Plus, they are not going to do alternate timelines AND time travel in a two hour movie. Wish they grabbed Ultron Unleashed as the title and movie plot, as that would work so well with the movie cast and it is a quasi-simple straight forward concept. Killer robot picks a small nation, completely destroys it on live television, and the Avengers have to set right what once went wrong.
So excited about the next couple years for comic movies!
Only X-Men news from the Ultimate Universe. Bendis confirms that the Ultimate X-Men will appear in Cataclysm, which is when our Galactus shows up on on the Ultimate Earth. Bendis revealed that the Hunger mini deals with Galactus in the Ultimate Universe, so I can skip on that mini, though the final pages of the final issue might be worth picking up. Not sure how Ultimate Spider-Man can play a major role in this, but if he can, so can Ultimate Kitty Pryde, I say! I remember, and should try to figure out who said it, an interview a while back where they said that the Big Three in the Ultimate Universe is: Spider-Man, Kitty Pryde, and Captain America. As oppose to our Big Three of: Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor.
Marvel’s Arune Singh said that. He was the Director of Communications then.
He still holds that title, if it was up to me, I would promote him to Super Director or something like that.
I haven’t been to a San Diego Comic Con since 2004 when Spider-Man 2 came out and we got to see the first scene of Doctor Octopus waking up with the arms in the hospital room.
These images of the Sentinels and the cast of characters in the future, look awesome!
Let’s hope the Sentinels are skyscraper size robots, or a mixture of giant ones and man sized ones.
Bishop looks dead on from his 90s counterpart. Loving the way they got Wolverine looking for the future. Something about how war tired Xavier and Magneto look, makes me excited about X-Men Days of Future Past.
Now there a slew of rumors out there that might kill your buzz from the movie, but let’s hold out hope that those rumors are not true. Like how I was worried Jennifer Lawrence was going to steal the Kitty Pryde role seems to be not happening, Hugh Jackman is going to do that. And apparently Kitty Pryde is going to have “time phasing” powers now, which is so weird but if that’s what they got to do, then I guess that’s what they got to do. Just irrupting as there are a sub group of people, that once they see something in the movie, they think it is part of the comic lore. Comics doesn’t do any favors by then making it part of the comic lore to try to cash in on this new audience, that I don’t believe actually sticks around pass the first two months.
But like I said, those are rumors and let’s try to not jump at any conclusions just yet.
Right now, the images are awesome, wish we got Ellen Page instead of the dude playing Colossus but time will tell and there has already been a photo shown of Ellen Page on set, so we should be happy with that.
