Fox Planning a New X-Men TV Show

According to a new report from Bleeding Cool, Fox is currently mulling over plans to develop a new TV series based on the X-Men franchise. Only this time, it’s not going to be in animated form (man, I miss that old 90s cartoon.) – Fox is considering a live-action series. If the report is true, then it means Fox is approaching the comic book properties that they still have with the same strategy as Marvel’s, although Marvel will be airing theirs on Netflix.

X-Men: Apocalypse May Feature a Bald James McAvoy

One of the key defining aspects of Professor X is that he’s bald. It’s a bit shallow, but yes. When people say Professor X, you imagine a bald man on a floating chair. In the first two films in the rebooted X-Men series, James McAvoy managed to work the role effectively despite sporting a full head of hair, mainly because he’s portraying Charlex Xavier in his heady…erm…younger days and because you really can’t find any fault with his acting skill.

However, times may be about to change and we might see McAvoy portray a bald Xavier. The info came from the actor himself, who revealed that he’s portraying an older version in X-Men: Apocalypse:

The X-Men Meets the Avengers in Marvel Disk Wars Anime Series

The current mess that is the movie rights to Marvel’s comic book properties (majority of which is currently split between 20th Fox, Sony, and Marvel with a few overlaps on some characters) means that a big-screen crossover between earth’s mightiest heroes and the children of the atom “ain’t gonna happen soon.” However, the picture changes when it comes to anime, as Toei’s Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime series will soon pit the X-Men against the Avengers via the X-Men Edition storyline.

Simon Kinberg Explains Decision to Cut Rogue’s Part from Days of Future Past

It was previously reported and confirmed that Rogue, played by Anna Paquin, was originally part of a subplot in Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past but was cut off after the subplot was deemed unnecessary (and would have extended the runtime to more than 2 and a half hours.) The film’s screenwriter and producer, Simon Kinberg, has also chimed in and explained in greater detail why the scenes had to be cut from the finished script:

Gambit and Nightcrawler Could Show Up in X-Men: Apocalypse

In a recent interview with Cine Premiere, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer revealed plans for the third installment in the franchise, even though X-Men: Days of Future Past is still awaiting its cinematic release.

According to Singer, he was thinking of bringing back two fan favorites who have already made appearances in the previous iterations of the X-Men franchise: Nightcrawler, who last appeared in X3, and Gambit, who sort of appeared in X-Men: Origins.

New Images of Bishop and Mystique from Days of Future Past Released

Stop Motion Recreation of X-Men Cartoon Intro

Stop Motion Recreation of X-Men Cartoon Intro

If you were comic book fan in the early 90s, the X-Men cartoon was a really big deal. First, it was the X-Men, which reinvigorated the comic book industry at that time. Second, the cartoon was not dumbed down for kids at all. Some of the more violent aspects were removed, but the cartoon stayed as dark as the source material and tackled mature subject matter. Best of all, it had one of the most kickass intros to ever grace an American cartoon.
