X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Bryan Singer’s upcoming "X-Men Days Of Future Past" can likely be seen in two different ways: either you’re anticipating the hell out of this movie with its ultimate X-Men fanboy-driven cast of characters or you’re generally worried that a movie with over 25 super heroes and villains is going to be one big disaster.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Though the its cinematic universe in divided into three — “Spider-Man” is with Sony, the “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” characters with Fox, and the rest with the comics giant itself — Marvel is still far ahead of the competition with each of its futures more or less for the next several years. In fact, with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” the company hopes to slowly introduce more obscure characters from their catalogue to general audiences with the expense of a large blockbuster. In fact, yesterday came news that the middling ABC series will be adding two characters absent from the Marvel cinematic universe up until now.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
They may be from rival studios, and feature a whole host of different characters, but fuck it, we're combining new pics and promo material from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" into one post because you can bet some studio executives are trying to figure out how to crossover the franchises anyway (even if it's logistically impossible given the vying business interests involved).

Even with the Avengers-izing of comic movies now de rigeur in Hollywood, it was bound to happen that with all the characters squeezed into Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," some of those cameos and appearances wouldn't make the final cut. And indeed, the first casualty from the movie has been revealed.

How The 'Avengers'-Izing Of Blockbusters Is Killing Movies
Is it enough to just make one movie anymore? In the wake of Marvel’s audacious world-building in an assembly line of completely indistinguishable adventure movies, the studios would answer no. What used to be one series of movies has become a web, one that involves various other series’ and offshoots of one particular brand.

Last week came a double whammy of news over at Fox, that was more or less an early Christmas present for comic movie fans: first, it was announced that "X-Men: Apocalypse" was set for a 2016 release date and second, it would likely be part of a Marvel-esque universe of movies writer Simon Kinberg was building. Well, today brings with it a couple more updates starting with Vulture confirming that Bryan Singer will be back in the director's chair for 'Apocalypse,' but perhaps more intriguingly, word has already surfaced on how it links to "X-Men: Days Of Future Past."

X-Men: Days Of Future Past,
With extensive work on Neill Blomkamp’s “Elysium” and also the upcoming “Star Wars” films as a writer, producer Simon Kinberg has locked in recently on the sci-fi/fantasy front, but those aren’t enough—comic book adaptations have found his focus as well. Next summer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and the Josh Trank-directed “Fantastic Four” remake both bear his name as writer/producer, but in a new development over at 20th Century Fox, which owns both franchises, he stands to have even more of a corner on the market.

After next year's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" which is going to be a super size smorgasboard of every character Fox seemingly has the rights too, stuffed like a Blondie sandwich into the movie, what we of course need is announcement of even more, right?
