It has been confirmed that Daniel Cudmore will reprise his role as Colossus in the upcoming X-men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer tweeted the image below which features Cudmore’s head shot alongside the rest of the confirmed cast for this upcoming film.
Here is the newest trailer for Bryan Singer’s ‘Jack the Giant Killer’ which will hit theaters on March 1st.
Jack the Giant Slayer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack (Nicholas Hoult) into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend–and gets the chance to become a legend himself.
It was announced over the weekend that Anna Paquin, Ellen Paige and Shawn Ashmore would all be returning to the X-men franchise. They will be taking on their roles of Rogue, Kitty Pryde and Iceman respectively.
Bryan Singer tweeted the following confirming their return:
Very excited to welcome
#annapaquin, @ellenpage & @shawnrashmore to #XMen #DaysofFuturePast – thank
@BrettRatner for letting them live!
Bryan Singer who was recently announced as returning to the X-men universe to direct X-men: Days of Future Past had the following to say via his Twitter today.
‘I’d like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, & Nicholas Hoult to #XMEN for #DaysOfFuturePast’
‘Thrilled to announce @ianmckellen118 & @SirPatStew are joining the cast of #XMEN #DaysOfFuturePast #magneto #professorX More to come…’
This returns McAvoy as a younger Professor X, Fassbender as the younger Magneto, Lawrence as Mystique and Hoult as Beast. Patrick Stewart returns to his role as the elder Professor Xavier while Ian McKellan returns as the older Magneto.
It will be very interesting to see where they go with this as X-men 3: Last Stand killed off Professor X and de-powered Magneto. Will this just be an alternate timeline or will (fingers crossed) X-men 3 be disregarded and we go on as if that was an out of continuity story so as to keep many X-men alive and connect the stories more cohesively. We shall see.

Whoever created the image above…kudos to you. I dig it and I have been hoping for awhile that one of these comic book movies would do a series of real world movie posters based on classic comic book covers. Maybe they will this time around. Fingers crossed. Below are a couple of small news items regarding the new Wolverine and X-men movies in the works. While not too spoilerish they are cool bits of info on these two upcoming mutant movies.
Bryan Singer is back in the X-men director’s chair as he is confirmed to direct the X-men: First Class sequel. Matthew Vaughn decided not to come back after the success of the first film choosing instead to pursue other film interests such as The Secret Service, a comic currently being done by Mark Millar. Singer directed both X-men and X-2. Both were great comic movies with X-2 proving to be pretty exceptional. This sequel subtitled Days of Future Past will of course deal with that famous story arc. This will allow for a lot of faces from the X-universe to show up. I look forward to more announcements as this nears production.
We have thousands of programs on hundreds of channels to watch and still we find ourselves sometimes saying how there is nothing on. Well, make your way to your computer and take a look at some new possibilities. Many filmmakers are creating short form web series programs in a number of different styles that may not have made it on cable or normal networks. They allow for more creative freedom and lower budgets while still providing episodic story telling along with the ability to dip into higher concepts and things that network executives might frown upon. One of these news web series shows is H+.
H+ has been a labor of love for Bryan Singer for years and is finally getting its chance to shine via web distribution. It’s synopsis is this:
H+ The Digital Series takes viewers on a journey into an apocalyptic future where technology has begun to spiral out of control… a future where the world’s population has retired its cell phones and laptops in favor of a stunning new device by Hplus Nano Teoranta, an innovative technology company that has found a way to connect the Internet to the human mind 24 hours a day.
