“Some of the best kills that I have ever seen… and that ain’t bad for a PG-13.” With a Rotten Tomatoes score of 47%, X-Men Apocalypse wasn’t exactly the best of the franchise. Sweetlegs’ rap about watching the movie while hungover reminds us of some of its more redeeming qualities.
With his adamantium skeleton replaced, Wolverine is impervious to just about everything. But his underlying bone claws aren’t nearly as strong. Rather than actual bone, The Hacksmith made himself a set from steel and tried to break concrete with them. Test footage starts at 10:00. They’re pretty awesome for Fruit Ninja IRL.
In this offshoot tale from the Marvel X-Men universe, a group of young mutants find themselves held in a psychiatric facility, and when they realize the truth about their captivity, they must work together and use their powers to help escape. After a long series of delays, the film drops 4/3/2020.
We’re not sure why 20th Century Fox didn’t just start with this trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. It has everything you need to know about the film – how Jean Grey got the Phoenix Force, why she’s losing control and why she’s going up against her friends. Premieres 6/6/19.
Rejoice, mon ami. The latest action figure in Revoltech’s Amazing Yamaguchi line is the X-Men’s charismatic Cajun, Gambit. The figure stands almost 7″ tall and has an articulated coat. It comes with an extra face, three pairs of hands, a staff, and four card effects.
The debut trailer for Dark Phoenix was intriguing, but Darth Blender’s take on it looks way more exciting. They used scenes from the classic ’90s X-Men animated series, which did take on the Dark Phoenix saga. It’s a shame they didn’t use scenes from the actual battle.
Nearly a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, Professor X’s team of mutants are sent on a mission in space. There Jean Grey is struck by a “mysterious cosmic force.” She is unable to control this unspeakable power, driving the team – and the world – into chaos.
Sculpted by Paul Harding for Gentle Giant, each of the Wolverine Collector’s Gallery statues commemorates the various iconic looks of the famous X-Men member. There’s Wolverine ’74, Wolverine ’80, Wolverine ’92 and Wolverine ’08 aka “Old Man Logan.”
The X-Men’s deputy leader Scott Summers joins Mezco Toyz’s 12th scale action figure line. The Cyclops action figure is about 7″ tall and comes with two swappable heads, both with an LED light on their visor, two optic blast effects, six hands and a jacket.
(Spoilers) Screen Junkies reminds us that not every superhero needs to be bombastic, consequence-free, CGI eye-candy, and instead a solid story, compelling characters, and a little gravitas properly applied can produce a great film, superheroes or not. And Deadpool agrees.
Is there anything The Q can’t make? The mysterious YouTube builder shows us how to make a set of nasty claws like Wolverine’s – without using any adamantium. These ones are made from popsicle sticks, toothpicks, rubber bands, paper, and a bit of Krazy Glue.
YouTuber Yoko Higuchi shares what is surely just one of the thousands of inevitable online tributes to Hugh Jackman and his 17-year stint as Wolverine. Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt is the slow motion of soundtracks, but if you watched Logan you know that the song is a great fit.
Professor X is suffering from Alzheimer’s, Wolverine’s healing powers are failing him, and the rest of the X-Men are dead. But when they discover that Mister Sinister is hunting down a young girl that was cloned from Logan’s DNA, the student and his teacher go on one last ride.
Whether you loved it, hated it, or just thought it was “meh” like we did, the guys at Screen Junkies are here to shoot all kinds of holes in the latest X-Men film, and reminding us that sometimes the best thing you can do with a beloved franchise is give it some time off.
