Today we turn the spotlight to a man who, for all his ups and downs, is perhaps the finest villain in the Marvel Universe.
Magneto has definitely evolved from the madman who first appeared in the pages of X-Men #1. Originally, he wasn’t too far removed from the fascists who we would later learn had set him on his course to misanthropy. He led a goose-stepping army in his tyrannical crusade toward the destruction of another race and showed no signs of humanity.
Here it is X-Dweebs, the Evil Geeks dissect X-Men: Days of Future Past, the new movie from Fox, and give you their in depth take on pretty much anything with an X Gene. It’s an all hands on deck show as Arthur Harkness, Biff Tannen, Big Evil, C-Mart, Greekimus Prime, Lilith Assisi, and Martian Luthor Kang the 117th engage in a mutant melee!
Afternoon Merry Mutants!
This holiday weekend was host to the return of the X-Men on the Silver Screen. Financially it was very successful pulling in more than $110 million dollars and far surpassing the opening weekend for First Class just a few years ago. But does the seventh movie in the franchise ward an eighth? Read on to find out!

Whats up Merry Mutants!
Last week I was a little pissed at Wolverine and 20th Century Fox, but Fox made me feel better over the weekend when it announced that Jackman would in fact return for The Wolverine sequel in 2017! Then this morning 20th Century Fox released the final trailer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and thanks to Youtube user X-Men Movies you can see it below! There seems to be a lot of future-esqe scenes in this trailer, with a lot of Nimrod-like Sentinels (just call it Project Nimrod dammit…) Check it out now! Read the rest of this entry
Let’s talk about the Amazing Spider-Man film series, shall we? As you may know Sony has rebooted the Spider-Man film franchise with its first movie in 2012. It made sense, the original Sam Rami helmed Spider-Man movies were successful and in its wake the superhero movie genre had exploded. Christopher Nolan proved that the general public can accept a swift reboot of a franchise if it’s done right.
It’s shocking that recently 3 more sequels were announced for the Amazing Spider-Man, the second of which is coming out in the summer of 2014. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to feature both Electro and the Rhino as villains well as Harry & Norman Osborne with a teaser shot of the Green Goblin on a promotional poster. I must admit, the trailer looks pretty good. I’m nervous though that for one, Sony is biting off more than they can chew. Everyone wants to follow the Marvel Cinematic method to create a full bodied universe where characters can cross over and spin off into other films. Here’s the thing, Marvel had a lot of successful properties to include and had a slow build up where each character could be highlighted over a few years thus creating a fervor for them all appearing together in one movie as the Avengers. DC is also trying their hand at the accelerated version of this with the sequel to Man Of Steel by including both Batman and Wonder Woman. Hell, Fox is getting in on it too with X-Men: Days Of The Future Past by combining casts from the First Class as well as the previous 3 installments as a way to help tie in the franchise. That one at least is unique and kind of makes sense a little more given the storyline.
Whats up Merry Mutants!
20th Century Fox released the first full trailer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and thanks to Youtube user X-Men Movies you can see it below! Days of Future Past is the official sequel to 2011’s X-Men First Class and also bears the same name of one of the most classic X-Men stories to date. I’ve kept my ears closed about this feature, despite the amount of leaks that director and X-Men fanboy Bryan Singer has leaked online. All I know is that it includes time travel, Sentinels, and about everyone who has even been an X-Man; including past, present, and future incarnations of themselves! But check out the trailer yourselves right NOW!
Days of Future Past is schedule for theaters on May 23, 2014, with a star studded cast from the recent First Class movie and the original trilogy that includes but isn’t limited to Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.
