Sticking with Marvel films their writers has been some buzz this week about another X-men film. Joe Shwartz writer and creator of Gossip Girl and Writer for The O.C and Chuck has been hired by 20th CenturyFox to write X-men: The First Class. It is thought that this will be based loosely on the comic of the same name and feature characters who had roles in the first three films.
Now if we follow the logic that sequels get worse the more there, which has proved true with this franchise so far, then this is gonna be the shitilaz (Stolen!!). The rumoured lineup will include Iceman, Angel, Rogue, Collossus, Jubilee and Shadowcat. Thats a good sounding lineup but I just hope it is delivered properly. It does have a couple of things going for it however.
Firstly although I said the sequels in this franchise are getting worse, the clips I've seen for the Origins: Wolverine project look pretty good and the lady who produced all three x-men films along with Origins, Lauren Shuler Donner is also set to produce The First Class with Simon Kinberg from Mr & Mrs Smith... Well I didn't say it was all good news did I!!
Now hands up if you've seen the latest Watchmen trailer. If your hand is in the air well done if not *SMACK* that was for not paying attention to what may possibly be the greatest comic book film ever. I know I've had my critical moments about this but it doesn't stop me wetting my pants a little every time I think of it and the poster of the Silk Spectre from last week didn't help either. Anyway if you haven't seen it here it is and if you have just enjoy watching it again and again and again and again and... well you get the point.
Now I challenge anybody to tell me that this doesn't look like the greatest thing since... well since TDK but you know what I mean. and whilst we're on trailers check this baby out!
This is the final trailer for The Spirit which hits our screens on Christmas day. I think it looks great, the makers have changed a few things so big fans of the books may be a bit worried thankfully i've never read them so will be watching it with fresh eyes and will review it in full here when it's released this side of the pond. Have a great week Geniuses and..
May the Spirit be with you!
