The X-Men reunion continues unabated as Bryan Singer reveals the return of Rogue, Iceman and Kitty Pryde in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Marvel do not like to rest on their laurels. Phase One was a formidable task; introducing movie audiences to Iron Man, Thor and Captain America and then bringing them all together with a renewed Incredible Hulk for the first ever big screen superhero crossover. They somehow pulled it off, The Avengers is one of the biggest movies of all time, and now there is no stopping them.
Phase Two begins this summer with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, continuing next year with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, a fairly out-there cosmic action movie by Slither-director James Gunn. This will culminate in 2015 with the release of The Avengers 2. Where next for Marvel's movie master plan?

Hey all, me again. So, Bryan Singer is returning to the movie franchise which initially kicked off the renaissance in comic book movies way back in 2000. The first X-Men film was flawed but faithful, while his sequel, X2 (aka X-MEN UNITED and X-Men 2) was incredible, and perfectly captured the essence of the X-Men concept and team. Singer gave up directing X-movies and went traitor by making the insipid SUPERMAN LIVES instead. Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand followed, and while it was mostly faithful to the characters, it did go kinda off the rails after, well, the opening credits. I liked a bunch of stuff about it (I loved Beast. He was spot on), but the story wasn't what it could have been. I remember getting excited by the preview footage of the battle against the Sentinels, and then, lo and behold, it was a Danger Room simulation rather than an actual battle.
Hey, thanks for checking out Panels To Frames, the comic movie column by an angry and bitter geek who spent his twenties propping up the counter of a comic shop. There's a new Superman film coming out soon, albeit without the word 'Superman' in the title. No, it's thankfully not a Smallville movie, although it does look rather like one in some shots. The Big Blue Boy Scout himself is the most iconic superhero of all time, and while he wasn't strictly the first, he is everything that sums up the notion of the superhero in our culture. He is brave, selfless and powerful beyond imagination. He is the symbol of an era, an icon in blue with a red cape and the legendary 'S' symbol.
