i think you can sync profiles from both to this site.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (25 March 2017 - 05:04 AM)

So I'm looking around at my settings at the moment, and I'm noticing "Manage Facebook" and "Manage Twitter," but I have to log in with those to see anything. What do those offer?

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Thanks.

@  Jalaguy : (24 March 2017 - 03:38 PM)

A gun was definitely jumped, we'll make sure it doesn't happen again. Big apology to everyone who wanted to stay spoiler-free.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 March 2017 - 03:08 PM)

Oh hey the news post in question turned up on my Tumblr dash, too. Thanks for that. Thanks a lot.

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

I was actually looking forward to playing along with the surprise aspect this time, yes. I'm not heartbroken or anything, but it would have been fun. It's more the lack of consideration by some newb mod.

@  EShadowP : (24 March 2017 - 10:25 AM)

The only silver lining to this being the final TFSS is the fact that I no longer have to explain to people why some of us actually ENJOY THE @#$%ing SURPRISE ASPECT OF THE SUBSCRIPTION.

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 07:24 AM)

Wow, not that big a deal, but the big front page article revealing the TFSS figures is pretty douchey considering a lot of people were discussing the surprise element and there was already a spoiler thread set up. Nice move.

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:45 AM)

Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 11:21 PM)

That's relieving to hear.

@  Jalaguy : (22 March 2017 - 05:33 PM)

I didn't know he was meeting the Fantastic Four's enemies.

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  unluckiness : (22 March 2017 - 06:45 AM)

Is Eddie Murphy still Mushu?

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:30 PM)

what....? b-but that song's so awesome! *lookd up info* oh, it's just "for now", but could change since it's not planned for release until 2018.

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

@  NightViper : (21 March 2017 - 01:54 PM)

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 03:40 PM)

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

It's like in Star Trek Into Darkness where Vulcan being destroyed means Khan is a white guy now.

 

 

Besides, we're talking about a film franchise where Emma Frost seemingly ages in reverse, so "continuity" is barely an afterthought.

There's also the really, really easy out...

 

Jubilee is, like Psylocke, never named in her appearances. So it simply wasn't the same person.

 

Or the Jubilee in the original films is Jubilee, daughter of Jubilee.

In X2, when Storm and Nightcrawler go to rescue the children abducted by Stryker, Storm very quickly says "Jubilee" before Kurt teleports in to save them.

 

Ive kind of just accepted that DOFP was a soft reboot in a sense and just hope the movie is good.

 

The x-men comics are convoluted enough;i guess that is one aspect the movies got right.

I'll take anything that gives Jubilee more face time. I know she's not the most popular character ever, but I kinda like her. And if they make her an actual mutant with her oringinal powers (you know...as apposed to a de-powered mutant turned vampire) so much the better.

Seriously, it's kind of amusing...my apathy for Days of Future Past has transformed into wild excitement for Apocalypse.

So we're up to Beast, Cyclops, Jean, Storm, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Jubilee, Havok, Angel, and possibly Gambit?

 

That's a lot of people to fit in between the introduction of Apocalypse and giving the majority of the screentime to Lawrence/McAvoy/Fassbender.

I've just come to accept that X-Movie mutants will have little in the way of actual characterization.

The rumor is that this and the third Wolverine movie are the end of the Singerverse X-Men movies anyway, and we'll get a series wide (rights protecting) reboot in a few years.

 

Makes a certain amount of sense. Jackman's pushing 50, Jennifer Lawrence is done getting painted blue to play third banana, Fassbender's likely moving on as well.

I hope thats one rumour that isn't true. I mean, one of DOFPs major things was freeing up the X-Universe continuity with the time reset.

Eh, makes sense to me.

 

Apocalypse wraps things up - leading Magneto into his plot to mutate all non-Mutants and setting up the team from the first X-film. I can't blame Lawrence for being done with that absolutely silly makeup for Mystique and as much as I love Fassbender's Magneto...he doesn't need to be typecast into that role. The man's got talent in change, no sense wasting it playing a costumed super villain.

I think Fassbenders unlikely to be typecast. He's too good for that.

I doubt typecasting is the concern with Fassbender. I'm sure it's the same reason Jennifer Lawrence is moving on: he's one of the most in demand actors in Hollywood, and he signed a multi picture deal right before he got super famous. I'm sure he's just ready to do other things.

She's naked. Even at the time of the first film, the justification for such was flimsy.

I actually kind of liked Magneto's reasoning regarding that in First Class: "Have you ever looked at a tiger and thought you ought to cover it up?"

 

It's very Magneto, if nothing else.
