We’ve heard for some time now that Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is casting the roles of young Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm, as the film will focus more on the younger generation of ‘First Class’ rather than once again uniting both old and new casts. While several names were floated, Fox has officially settled on their choices, with ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner set to play Jean, ‘Joe’ star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ star Alexandra Shipp taking on the role of Storm.

That ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Post-Credits Scene Gets A Comic Book Sequel From Marvel

Marvel

The post-credits scene for Guardians Of The Galaxy featured a rather unexpected comic book character, which inspired fan speculation over whether or not this particular character would make another appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we won’t see him on the big screen again anytime soon, he is getting his very own comic book sequel to help explain how he ended up in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Run For Your Life: Samsung Integrates Ultron Into New Marvel Tie-In Products

Now that the threat of Skynet destroying us all has been averted by an increasingly crappy series of Terminator movies (or maybe they're just disappointing us to death), a new technological threat to all life on Earth has emerged. In order to promote the forthcoming pic Avengers: Age Of Ultron, tech giant Samsung has joined forces with Marvel to put Ultron in all your smart devices. Yes, the word "smart" to describe technology has never been more insidious than it is now. Smart; scheming; devious.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Screenwriters Tease Possible Connections to ‘Agent Carter’

Marvel
Marvel

If you think the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating your life now, just wait until 2016 when Steve Rogers and Tony Stark go head-to-head in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’ It’s a movie so big that it actually scared ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ away from its original release date. So when you read the latest comments on the film by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who also wrote the first two ‘Captain America’ films), just try to imagine the amount of pressure on their shoulders. Lesser screenwriters would be crushed.

Patton Oswalt and Nite Owl Actor Patrick Wilson Dissect ‘Watchmen’ Movie

This is a fun clip. It’s from a recent appearance from actor, comedian, and author Patton Oswalt (whose new book, ‘Silver Screen Fiend,’ all about his obsession with movies, will probably be of great interest to ScreenCrush readers) at the WORD Bookstore in Jersey City, where he did a public conversation with actor Patrick Wilson. Oswalt is a hardcore comic-book nerd in addition to his passion for film, and Wilson starred in one of the most polarizing comic-book adaptations of all time, Zack Snyder’s slavishly faithful version of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ ‘Watchmen.’ When a fan asked a question about the movie, both Oswalt and Wilson shared their honest feelings about the project, which you can watch above.

This Live-Action ‘Jem’ Movie Sure Is Different Than We Thought It Would Be

Jem00

As regular readers will no doubt be aware, ComicsAlliance's most anticipated movie of 2015/ever is the upcoming live-action adaptation of the greatest glam-rock cartoon of all time, Jem and the Holograms. That said, there are a lot of rumors floating around about changes made in the transition from the small screen to the big screen. Some of them are interesting (possibly recasting Eric Raymond as a woman), some of them are worrisome (making an entire Jem movie without the Misfits), but they're all pointing at a Jem that's pretty different from the one we're used to. We just weren't quite expecting it to be this different.

As you can see from the video above, it seems like the live-action Jem has recast its stars as men who sing in Italian. So... that's unexpected.
