New ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ set photos show Ellen Page and Hugh Jackman

- May 5th, 2013

Bryan Singer gave X-Men fans their first glimpse of Ellen Page as Kitty “Shadowcat” Pryde and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine this week from the set of Days of Future Past.

The director snapped Page looking at Shawn Ashmore (who plays Iceman) and tweeted the pic with the caption: “Hello, Kitty.”

He also gave us a glimpse of the back of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine sporting his trademark coif and leather duds. “Fitting @RealHughJackman,” Singer tweeted.

Kitty Pryde plays a major role in Days of Future Past, which brings together the casts from the original trilogy and 2011′s First Class prequel. The storyline deals with an alternative future in which mutants have been gathered and put an internment camps. A future version of Pryde travels back in time to warn the present-day X-Men. The film will reportedly be set in the 1970s.

And for those of you who haven’t seen it, the CinemaCon trailer for this summer’s The Wolverine has hit the web, as well as a brand-spanking new poster. Hey, you can never have too much X-Men, right?

The Wolverine takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand and finds Logan in Japan, where he’s protecting Mariko (Tao Okamoto) from the Yakuza. The new spot gives us a look at one of the villains – Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova) – as well as the main antagonist, the Silver Samurai.

Director James Mangold tweeted a new poster for the villainous Silver Samurai, which looks absolutely stunning. I love how it uses the same watercolour style as the first teaser poster that just showed Wolverine.

The Wolverine is being adapted from a 1982 comic book arc from Frank Miller and Chris Claremont (one of my all-time favourites) and is skedded to hit theatres July 26.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on July 18, 2014.

New photo of Hugh Jackman as ‘The Wolverine’

- February 21st, 2013

From Bryan Singer’s constant tweets about Days of Future Past, it’s easy to forget that there’s another X-Men film coming out this summer – Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine.

Well that film’s official Twitter account has just released a new image of Jackman as everyone’s fave adamantium-enhanced mutant.

The photo hit the web with the following tagline: “The past is always behind you, but the memories still remain.”

The Wolverine is adapted from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s 1982 mini-series and takes place after X-Men 3.

This is the second pic from the new film this month. On Feb. 1, an Armani-esque Logan was posted with the message: “Black suit. Black tie. Adamantium claws.”

Jackman’s Wolverine will also appear in Singer’s Days of Future Past. So if you dig the character, there’s plenty of him on the way.

And in keeping with comics movie talk, here’s your first look at Josh Brolin, who will be appearing as Dwight in Robert Rodriguez’s adaptation of Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill.

He tweeted the image earlier this week saying, “Here’s bad ass Josh Brolin driving a Rodriguez-mobile.”

Pretty cool, I’d say.
