X-Men Days of Future Past

The Quicksilver of Two Worlds: How A D-List Speedster Became Hot Hollywood Property

quicksilver days of future past avengers age of ultron marvel

The Marvel superhero Quicksilver is not a big deal. I say that as someone who counts the guy among his favorite characters. What can I say? His snotty superiority has always spoken to me on a profound level. Yet I concede that the mutant speedster is not a marquee name. He's not even as popular as his nearest DC equivalent, the Flash. Calling him "B-list" may be a little generous.

Despite this he's going to appear in two separate movie blockbuster franchises played by two different actors in a single year -- a feat that Superman, Spider-Man, Batman and the Hulk can't match. None of this is because of public demand. So what is it about the character that landed him in this unique position?

Chris Vs. Twinkies: Comics Alliance’s Exhaustively Thorough Review Of Hostess’s X-Men Snack Cakes

Chris Sims with an EXtrme Creme Twinkie

One of the things about being America's most beloved comic book critic is that strange things tend to show up on my doorstep. Sometimes, it's a Power Rangers Fan Club kit from 1994, and sometimes, it's a copy of the comic book adaptation of Space Jam, and it happens often enough that I didn't think I could be surprised when it came time to pop open a box anymore. And then I opened one up to find two boxes of X-Men themed Twinkies resting on a bed of glimmering golden Easter basket grass.

Yes, those diabolical bakers at Hostess are marking the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past with two new flavors for everyone's favorite golden sponge cake, complete with the somewhat unfortunate name of EXtreme Creme, in Strawberry and Blue Raspberry. And I have eaten them.

Hugh Jackman Takes On Magneto On WWE Monday Night Raw [Video]

Magneto01

If you were wondering whether the existence of a Jem movie and an impeding Gallery Edition hardcover of The Dark Knight Returns were in fact evidence that I had gained mysterious, reality-warping powers that allow me to control the world as we know it, yes. Yes I have. I am master of reality now. I mean, how else can you explain the fact that last night, Magneto showed up to challenge Wolverine to a battle on WWE's Monday Night Raw?

Okay, admittedly: It was actually professional wrestler (and Intellectual Savior of the Masses) Damien Sandow, in cosplay, confronting X-Men: Days of Future Past movie star Hugh Jackman, who responded by busting out a pretty sweet wrestling move. Still, that's close enough, and by "close enough," I mean it was the greatest thing I have ever seen.

bryan singer allegations of sexual abuse

The director of Superman Returns and three X-Men films including the forthcoming Days of Future PastBryan Singer has been accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old male in 1999. In a lawsuit filed in civil court in Hawaii on Wednesday, plaintiff Michael F. Egan III alleged that Singer "manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements."

Egan, now 31, has asked for unspecified damages on four counts of emotional distress, battery, assault, and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion. A lawyer for Singer has denied the accusations, claiming they are "completely without merit."
