It's not cause I'm going bald, it's purely just a choice, I don't even have a receding hairline. It just depends on my mood and how much work I actually want to put in to it. My hair grows very fast though so if I use a razor in the morning it's already returned to rough stubble by mid-afternoon. I usually do just buzz it but during the summer I'll take it all the way down a lot more often when I'm in the sun a lot, feels good. Cool

Taylor Swift Dazzles with APOCALYPSE Stars and Screenwriter
Now, on one hand, Taylor Swift is rapidly becoming a great American icon, so it’s no wonder that UK celebrities James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, and screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg would happily take a picture with her. (Wouldn’t you?) But now we get into the somewhat suspect territory of a pop superstar who has turned in soundtrack efforts for numerous TV shows and movies, even dabbling into acting herself in various projects, appearing in a picture alongside X-Men: Apocalypse’s cast and crew. Before you start your speculation engines, don’t worry; we’ve done the heavy lifting for you.

In a rational world, I would look at this picture and say, “Hey! These folks look like they’re enjoying each other’s company. And boy does McAvoy’s psychic dome look extra shiny today!” But in an alternate universe, a universe based only on conjecture with no solid evidence to base conclusions on, an unanswered question embedded in this image begs for my attention: Could Swift join the mutant franchise as Dazzler?

Yes, my friends, Dazzler, the superheroine long affiliated with the X-Men who has the ability to convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams. Originally conceived as a collaborative character between Casablanca Records and Marvel Comics, Dazzler aka Alison Blaire, started out as a disco dancer who eventually moved on to rock and adult contemporary stardom in addition to landing her own solo series in the 1980s. In short: An attractive blonde woman with an incredible voice trained as a singer/actress/dancer who possesses powerful mutant abilities. Now let’s first ask ourselves if Swift embodies that character, with the follow-up of, would it be a wise move to integrate her massive fanbase across media? I’d answer yes to both. Whether that happens or not is another story.

Swift's success is quite something though. I read a couple of days ago that her latest album sold by the millions and it was mentioned that it was the fastest selling album in 10 years, she must be filthy rich now.

She's got some beautiful ladies on her pack for sure!

Tyger, she hangs out with Victoria's Secret models on occasions and a bunch of other ladies as well. She's cool with everyone really, she's got many friends.

I don't stay up on Taylor either but she's constantly in the news, I don't think a day goes by where she isn't in a headline online or in the checkout stands. But as for Apple, she backed those bastards down almost instantly because of her massive and rabid fan base. The girl has racked up some serious power in the industry thanks to the buying power of teenage girls. Also I tend to pay a lot more attention when I find out hotties are tribbing, it's just how I roll.

Apocalypse's Four Horsemen Revealed
At 20th Century Fox’s Hall H panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego, the studio showed off a new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. While the footage has not yet been officially released online, in presented our first look at both the villain Apocalypse and what appear to be his Four Horsemen as they stormed the Xavier institute.

Those Horsemen include some interesting choices. They are Magneto, Storm, Psylocke, and Angel.

Angel, or presumably Archangel, is the most obvious choice, since the character’s history has been inextricably tied to Apocalypse since the villain transformed him in the 1980s. His role as a Horseman seemed to be a given from the moment he was confirmed as appearing in the film.

During “The Dark Angel Saga” that ran in the pages of Uncanny X-Force, Archangel ascended as the new Apocalypse in the wake of En Sabah Nur’s death. Psylocke, his longtime girlfriend, was then transformed into the new Horseman of Death. It didn’t stick – she was transformed back within the next issue or two – but its precedent, and perhaps we’ll see that long, tragic romance between Betsy and Warren explored as well.

At first, Storm seems like an odd choice as a Horseman, but it makes sense with some creative editing of her history. In the comics, Professor X’s first encounter with Ororo Munroe is when she is a young pickpocket in Cairo, working for a master named Amahl Farouk. Farouk is revealed to be the incredibly powerful psychic entity called the Shadow Lord, and he and Xavier battle on the astral plane.

Storm’s inclusion as a Horsemen then seems to take that same origin story and tweak it a bit to suit the film’s narrative. Instead of being in the service of the Shadow King, she’s in the service of Apocalypse. She’s a little older, probably has a bit more agency, and the battle will likely be a bit more physical, but the pieces still fit in a pretty similar way.

The most interesting choice has to be Magneto. Putting Magneto in the role of Horseman avoids the common superhero movie problem of too many villains by simply making him a part of Apocalypse’s plans. There’s an interesting character arc opportunity as well. For most of his history, Magneto has walked the line between hero and villain. Apocalypse, on the other hand, has always been pure evil. It will likely be up to Magneto, probably with a bit of help from his old friend Charles, to see this contrast for himself and to come to realize what makes him and his mission for mutants different than Apocalypse and his goals for domination.

This also seems to dunk one theory, that Mystique would bring Wolverine to Apocalypse to be turned into a Horseman. With Hugh Jackman ready to call it quits after the next solo Wolverine movie, it’s possible that the end of Days of Future Past is the last we’ll see of Wolverine in the core X-Men movies for now, with audiences left to assume he follows the same path as was laid out in X2: X-Men United, leading him to a government program that gives him an adamantium skeleton and wipes his memories.

This shits me.

I want to watch it ... but I fucking hated the "Age of Apocalypse" reboot they did with the comics in the 90's.

For no other reason than it forced me to buy multiple titles. My memory is probably exaggerating here, but it seemed that every 2nd page there was a panel with a noted asterisk, saying * refer to issue XX of [insert title here].

I hated that shit with a passion. I couldn't just read Weapon X. The narrative ensured that if I really wanted to know what was going on, I had to read X-Calibre, Gambit and the X-whatever's, Factor-X - and a slew of other half-arse X-titles.

It was what pushed me away from the majors (Marvel and DC), and threw me into the loving embrace of Spawn and Image comics (and indie comics by default).

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Will Be “The True Birth of the X-Men”
Bryan Singer has taken an interesting approach to the X-Men franchise. He built it, left it, returned to it by picking up a sequel to a prequel, which in turn became a quasi-reboot that now, says the director, will lead to the conclusion of the previous six movies while also working as a “rebirth.” While this may seem convoluted, it doesn’t hold a candle to the kind of storytelling contortions the X-Men comics have had to do over the decades.

Speaking to EW, Singer said X-Men: Apocalypse “is kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters.” Specifically, the movie will be introducing Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), and ­Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) among others. It’s preparation for losing current cast members like Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender, who probably won’t renew their contracts.

“This is the true birth of the X-Men,” Singer says. “This is how it happens,” although it will now be on his terms where Nightcrawler is no longer introduced after trying to assassinate the President like in X2. It’s also interesting that there will basically be two team-assemblages in a three-film span, but that’s the demands of franchise filmmaking, and I like seeing how Singer is trying to balance those demands with his own vision the X-Men series. Now we just have to wait and see if he managed to pull it off.

So basically you're looking for a DC approach to the X-Men, or apparently Deadpool based on what people said of that first trailer.

I don't see the creation of the DC cinematic universe to be rebooting Batman or Superman franchises. That happens more as a byproduct of building their own Marvel model. Deadpool is pretty much the hardest reboot you can get while using the same actor.

The X-Men movies...you could easily argue really started the boom in comic book movies, but comic book movies have changed so much in the last 15 years. I don't think the franchise holds up, personally. I know plenty of people loved Days of Future Past, but I found it pretty lackluster. We just got a soft reboot and now they're doing another all in the same franchise. Come on. Just take it out back and put it out of its misery.

I'd love to see what it would be like without Brian Singer's involvement, I think he worked on most of them in some capacity. Probably why First Class turned out so great. If he's taking a different approach with this movie then this could turn out great too.

I wonder the same thing. Singer does nothing for me as a film-maker. X1 & 2 worked, but it was all downhill from there.

The only thing this franchise has going for it at the moment is it's not part of the Marvel Cinematic cheese factory. They have the chance to do something with it, but why rock the boat when the current one is heading straight for cashville.

Shit, they have no better Wolverine in Hugh Jackman, and they can't even get his films right.

I get it, my love of X-Men pretty much began and ended with the 90's cartoon series as a kid. First Class thanks to Vaughn was the first X-Men film I did ever bother to own but with the return of Singer killed any real shot they had at making something great.

Apocalypse picks up ten years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past timeline (the 1970s portions, not the grimdark future), with Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) still estranged from one another. Their paths are forced back together when Apocalypse awakens in his tomb and, finding the 1980s era wanting, decides to give the world a forced evolutionary jumpstart.

“It’s a chaotic world of conflict and war and destruction,” Singer says. “It’s one giant civilization that now requires one giant culling. That’s why he needs ­special assistants in this process.”

Those assistants, his Four Horsemen, are mutants familiar to X-Men comics fan. Apocalypse finds Ororo Munro, a.k.a. Storm (Alexandra Shipp) on the streets of Cairo. Angel (Ben Hardy) is participating in a fight club in Berlin. Psylocke (Olivia Munn) is working in Eastern Europe for Caliban, a mutant power broker. The final Horseman is Magneto, who has been attempting to live a normal life in Poland with a woman he loves.

“He’s fallen in love and he’s basically left his metal ways behind,” Fassbender says. “Apocalypse finds Erik at a low ebb and recruits him.”

Meanwhile, Mystique has been helping to rescue oppressed mutants, including Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and becomes involved in the struggle against Apocalypse when she hears what happened to Erik. This leads her to Charles Xavier, whose school for gifted youngsters has grown significantly over the past decade. His students include young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops (Tye Sheridan).

Fassbender Goes ‘Method’ in ‘Big Lebowski’ Live Read
Michael Fassbender put his magnetic superpowers aside Friday night to play stoner icon “the Dude” in a reading of “The Big Lebowski” in Montreal, but it was Patton Oswalt’s performance as Walter Sobchak (the role originated by John Goodman) that stole the show.

Organized by the Just for Laughs comedy festival, the sold-out Live Read — at which a cast of nine read the Coen brothers’ cult-favorite screenplay for an audience of 1,300 — took clever advantage of the fact that “X-Men: Apocalypse” is shooting in the same city where North America’s biggest comedy festival is headquartered. As such, the fest managed to lure X-women Jennifer Lawrence (who performed Julianne Moore’s Maude) and Olivia Munn (stepping in as Tara Reid’s Bunny) to join Oswalt and a handful of “Silicon Valley” players — T.J. Miller as Brandt, Martin Starr as Jesus and showrunner Mike Judge doing a dead-on Sam Elliott as The Stranger — for the one-night-only event.
Local interest was so intense that the festival switched venues, upgrading from a much smaller 420-seat theater to the city’s historic Olympia. Dedicated fans showed up as much as five hours early to get in, queuing around the block for a show that started 40 minutes late. (Such delays have been typical at Just for Laughs this year, which seems to be running more or less on Dude Time.)

It also marks the first time that Montreal-born Jason Reitman has put on one of his popular screenplay readings in his Canadian hometown (though he did a Live Read of “Boogie Nights” not so far away at the Toronto film festival in 2013). These star-studded events — which give fans a chance to see how their favorite movies might sound in the hands of a completely different cast, while Reitman reads the scene-setting description — have become hot tickets in Los Angeles, where the director mounts them monthly at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

With some of the more popular titles in the series (such as “American Beauty” and “The Apartment”), Reitman has been known to repeat a Live Read with an entirely new ensemble. As it happens, he gave “The Big Lebowski” the live treatment once before, having rather notoriously cast Seth Rogen (who reportedly smoked a joint onstage) as “the Dude” in 2012.

It practically goes without saying that Fassbender brought a very different energy to the role, though the British star shed his accent and demonstrated his serious-actor commitment by ambling onstage in boxers and a ratty old bathrobe, carrying a cocktail in a plastic cup (en lieu of the Dude’s signature Caucasian) and smoking three hand-rolled jazz cigarettes over the course of the evening.

“I think Fassbender went a little too Method on this one. I hope TMZ isn’t here,” Oswalt quipped from an adjacent chair, though Fassbender’s “Big Lebowski” shenanigans were small potatoes compared to the 40-plus pounds he lost to play I.R.A. activist Bobby Sands in “Hunger.”

Whereas Fassbender gave what appears to be the most laid-back performance of his career, Oswalt went into overdrive, pouring his full energy into the part of Walter, occasionally even rising from his seat to gesture wildly or wave his finger-gun in the air (while his eight co-stars sat in folding chairs onstage).

When it came time for Walter to threaten Larry, Oswalt broke character for a moment and begged Reitman’s permission to read the “TV edit” version of his part, substituting, “You see what happens when you find a stranger in the alps?!” for the Coen’s original, more colorful expletive. (Fun fact: The Coens penned all of the replacement dialogue heard during TV airings of their film.)

After Oswalt, the evening’s next most enthusiastic performer was Mae Whitman, a regular participant in Reitman’s live readings back in Los Angeles (here, her roles ranged from Steve Buscemi’s Donny to one of the heavily-accented Nihilists). The evening’s most popular surprise was the last-minute unveiling of Dennis Quaid as the wheelchair-bound Big Lebowski — another convenient get, since Quaid has been in Montreal shooting the upcoming Crackle series “The Art of More.”

Audiences were also surprised to discover that Jennifer Lawrence can’t read. When the time came, the tongue-tied Oscar winner may have stumbled through her lines (not helped by the fact they’d been highlighted in the copy of the script given to Munn, rather than in her own), but sitting onstage between Fassbender and Starr, laughing as hard as anyone in the room at the Coens’ best lines, there’s no question she really tied the room together.

RUMOR: Michael Fassbender And James McAvoy Sign On For More X-MEN Movies




Both Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have previously expressed interest in returning as Magneto and Professor X once their contract comes to an end with X-Men: Apocalypse, and it now appears as if Channing Tatum's Gambit deal wasn't the only one closed by Fox this weekend. According to a new report, the duo have reportedly signed on to reprise their respective roles in future X-Men movies. So, both characters clearly survive the events of the 2016 movie anyway! 

The franchise wouldn't be the same without them, and while it's not clear how many more movies Fassbender and McAvoy will star in, we obviously haven't seen the last of the two mutant friends turned enemies in Fox's X-Men Universe. It's also mentioned that Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence are wanted by the studio to return as Beast and Mystique, but as has been previously reported, the latter seems unlikely to commit. Take this with a pinch of salt until we hear something more concrete, but how do you feel about the prospect of more Magneto and Professor X?

If they're making other X-Men movies I'd want these two in it so this is a good thing. I don't know if McAvoy is willing to shave his head though.

Fox Near Deal for 'X-Men' Live-Action Series
Fox is inching closer to a live-action X-Men series.

"[For] X-Men, we're in negotiations with Marvel. We're hopeful we'll be able to announce something soon. We're not closed on a deal yet but it's something we're definitely pursuing," Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden told THR on Thursday at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour stop. 


As THR previously reported, Fox's potential live-action series is being penned by Star Trek 3 writing duo Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne; they will share a "created by" credit with 24's Evan Katz and Manny Coto, who also will serve as showrunners.

Fox studio counterpart 20th Century Fox owns the rights to the film franchise (with seven features already released based on X-Men characters and Gambit with Channing Tatum in the pipeline). While conversations to bring the franchise to the small screen are underway, sources indicate a deal is far from complete, with Marvel — which owns the comic rights — still having to sign off on the deal. The comic book powerhouse is based at Disney, with ABC shows including Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter on the network and five upcoming straight-to-series programs in the works there. Marvel would have to sign off on the deal.

"The characters from the X-Men franchise are with Fox on the feature side so we won't be including Marvel characters that are at ABC with Disney," Walden said of how the deal with Marvel will be structured. "This will be exclusively the franchise as it has existed at Fox."

The goal, she said, was for X-Men to be a "long-running" series — not a limited revival a la 24: Live Another Day and the Prison Break revival, which Walden and Fox TV Group chairman and CEO Gary Newman announced early Thursday.

They cast some of the biggest up and coming under 21 banking on them being the future of this franchise when they can still get them for peanuts.

Well, Munn would but Psylocke wouldn't. Your hate for Reynolds knows no bounds. Deadpool will change that perspective. Twisted Evil

Olivia Munn Did All Her Own 'APOCALYPSE' Stunts
Fans rejoiced when they found out that Psylocke was going to appear in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and be handled in a more faithful way than when we last saw her on screen in X-MEN: THE LAST STAND. For one thing, the relatively unknown actress Mei Melançon has been replaced by Olivia Munn, who's got tons of geek cred thanks to her four year stint on G4's ATTACK OF THE SHOW. For another, she's a visual dead ringer for the role, aided mightily by the fact that she's actually wearing her signature costume. The importance of the visuals has not been lost on Munn, who has revealed that she turned down the option to use a body double for Psylocke's action sequences. "That was me from the beginning to the end," she revealed to Entertainment Tonight at the Sci-Tech Awards. "That was a really cool thing to feel like when I showed up on set I was like, "Oh wait, I can do this! Throw me onto a wire, give me a sword – I'm good!" As for why she opted to be so hands-on Munn added, "Psylocke is such a powerful, lethal character. It was important to me that I was able to do all of the stunts because the more believable it is, the better it is for the audience -- and the only way to make it believable is for me to actually do it." So when we all sit down to see Fox's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE in May, we can rest assured that we're actually watching Munn do all of those stunts.
