FANS CALL "X-MEN'S" SCHOOL FOR GIFTED YOUNGSTERS

Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: X-Men | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




Last week Fox released a viral video for "X-Men: Apocalypse" designed to look like a 1980s recruitment commercial for Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Hosted by Jubilee (Lana Condor), the fake spot ended with a voiceover from Stan Lee encouraging viewers to call a 1-800 number.

And, boy, did they ever.

More than 75,000 responded, with some leaving rather creative messages. In a followup, the studio has unveiled a new video that offers a sampling of just some of those calls.

One caller reported he sneezed and blew the entire second story off of his house, while another said had quills coming out of his body. And then there's the one who sounded a lot like a certain Merc With a Mouth, who asked for Jean Grey's phone number.

STAN LEE WEIGHS IN ON MARVEL'S CONTROVERSIAL "CAPTAIN AMERICA" TWIST

Marvel Comics stirred a hornet's nest last week with the shocking revelation in "Captain America: Steve Rogers" #1 that the Sentinel of Liberty is secretly and agent of Hydra, and may have been since the very beginning. The surprise twist drew mainstream media attention, a good deal of criticism, and even threats directed at writer Nick Spencer.

During an appearance over the weekend at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, legendary writer Stan Lee was even drawn into the discussion -- but his view might just surprise you.

"It's a helluva clever idea," the 93-year-old creator said in response to a question from the audience. "I don't know that I would ever have thought of it, for him to be a double agent. But it's going to make you curious, it's going to make you want to read the books ... they'll probably do a movie based on it, so I can't fault it. It's a good idea."

"I think it's crazy," he added with a laugh, "but it's a good idea."

Of course, Lee's no stranger to Captain America retcons. After all, it was he and Jack Kirby who revised Steve Rogers' history when they reintroduced him in 1964's "The Avengers" #4.

While doing an interview with BBC Radio One, Kit Harington received a surprise call from his “Game of Thrones” co-star Maisie Williams.

The pair began to chat as if they were on the phone with each other, making plans to see Harington’s current play “Doctor Faustus.” Williams even said she would invite “Game of Thrones” co-star Sophie Turner along, and asked if they could all grab drinks afterward.

The radio host seemed happy to be in the middle of this conversation, which began as an interview with Harington about his previous media comments about his — and his character Jon Snow’s — status on “Game of Thrones”

The Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons rallies her troops for war in 'Blood of My Blood.'

[Warning: this story contains spoilers for episode six, season six of HBO's Game of Thrones.]As an old warrior once said: "Freedom!"

Daenerys Stormborn (Emilia Clarke) of House Targaryen — The Unburnt Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and of the First Men; Queen of Meereen; Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea; Breaker of Chains; and Mother of Dragons — channeled her inner William Wallace and delivered the rousing battle cry the show has been promising for years and years.

Although she still has a way to go before reaching Westeros, Dany's current mission statement has been announced loud and clear: She's coming for the Seven Kingdoms, and she has an army of thousands of blood riders backing her up. Forget winter; the Dothraki are coming, and they have dragons.
"CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR" PASSES "DEADPOOL" AS TOP-GROSSING U.S. FILM OF 2016

"Deadpool" has reigned at the top of the 2016 North American box office since its record-breaking opening in February, fending off competition from the likes of"Zootopia," "The Jungle Book" and "Batman v Superman." But as of this weekend, the Merc With a Mouth officially lost his 2016 crown.

Box Office Mojo reports that Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" is now the highest-grossing film of the year in North America with $372.6 million. "Deadpool" slips to No. 2 with $362.8 million.

"Deadpool" remains the highest-grossing "X-Men" film and the highest-grossing R-rated movie, two titles Wade Wilson would surely be proud to hold.

"Civil War" has grossed $1.1 billion worldwide, with "Deadpool" trailing distantly at $736 million. However, the Merc With a Mouth should receive a bit of a boost when his film finally opens June 1 in Japan.
MELISSA MCCARTHY RESPONDS TO ‘GHOSTBUSTERS’ BACKLASH

One of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, Melissa McCarthy has found commercial and critical success with films like “Bridesmaids,” “Spy,” “Tammy” and “The Heat.” However, her role in the upcoming “Ghostbusters” reboot has seen McCarthy and her co-stars become the targets of online abuse.

In an extensive interview with The Guardian, McCarthy shared her thoughts on fame, comedy, working with director Paul Feig, and the barrage of negativity aimed at the new “Ghostbusters.”

“All those comments — ‘You’re ruining my childhood!’” she said. “I mean, really, four women doing any movie on Earth will destroy your childhood?”

“I have a visual of those people not having a Ben [Falcone, McCarthy’s husband], not having friends, so they’re just sitting there and spewing hate into this fake world of the internet. I just hope they find a friend.”

That’s a kind sentiment, considering the amount of hate directed at McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

The Guardian also points out that while there has been negativity surrounding other franchise reboots and sequels, none of the male co-stars of, say, “Karate Kid” or “Jurassic World” had to deal with specifically sexist backlash.

Directed by Paul Feig, “Ghostbusters’ opens July 15.
‘FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST’ DIRECTOR REVEALS MORE ABOUT LIVE-ACTION FILM

In contrast to adaptations of “Attack on Titan” and “Rurouni Kenshin,” the live-action “Fullmetal Alchemist” will be told as a single film.

That comes from director Fumihiko Sori, who told Oricon (via Anime News Network) that his take on Hiromu Arakawa’s action-fantasy manga will also age protagonist Edward Elric aged from 15 years old to 20. Hey! Say! JUMP and NYC member Ryosuke Yamada, who’s 23, has been cast in the lead role.

Set in an alternate Edwardian-era world where alchemy is a science, and State Alchemists work for the government, “Fullmetal Alchemist” centers on the Elric brothers, who attempt to perform the forbidden human transmutation to resurrect their dead mother. After the transmutation backfires, severely injuring Edward and destroying Alphonse’s body, Edward sacrifices his arm to rescue his brother’s soul and bind it to a suit of armor. Edward becomes a State Alchemist, and the two set off in search of a philosopher’s stone to restore their bodies.

Set to begin filming from June to August in Italy, Sori’s “Fullmetal Alchemist” will rely heavily on CGI to create elements such as Alphonse’s armor.

“It is my dearest wish to turn this wonderful story into a film,” the filmmaker told Oricon, “and it is not an exaggeration to say that I am living for this reason.”

That’s Lois and little Zod (courtesy of The Maryland Zoo)

The Maryland Zoo clearly doesn’t know what it’s in for.

The 135-acre park in Baltimore welcomed a new addition to its herd of African pygmy goats on March 16, and promptly named it Zod. Yes, after the Kryptonian supervillain.

You see, the zoo has established a Superman theme for its pygmy goats; Zod’s parents are Lex and Lois, which opens a whole other can of worms that will likely be addressed in DC Comics’ Rebirth initiative.

Zod now weighs seven pounds, and according to the zoo, is growing rapidly, undoubtedly from absorbing energy from our yellow sun.

“He is still quite young, but is exploring his new barn, playing with Lois and napping,” Carey Ricciardone, mammal collection and conservation manager, said in a statement. “As always, our staff will continue to monitor Lois and Zod closely to ensure that they are doing well together.”

Ricciardone added, “We encourage visitors to stop by to visit Zod and watch him grow up all summer long,” after which point the Kryptonian kid will launch his conquest of the zoo.

Although Lex Luthor was last seen behind bars in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," he may not remain there for long.

Appearing at MCM London Comic Con, actor Jesse Eisenberg confirmed that he'll reprise his villainous role in 2017's"Justice League: Part One."

"I'm kind of in wait," he told the audience, according to Digital Spy. "They just started filming 'Justice League,' so I'm kind of, like, waiting for my crack at it. I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off."

Eisenberg previously indicated he wasn't sure where Luthor might appear next, saying, “I only hope I have another opportunity to work with these wonderful people and play this interesting character. ... The character has so many different faces. He has a public persona that appears charming and friendly and then a deeply disturbed private persona, so it will be interesting to see where he goes.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, "Justice League: Part One" also stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons and J. K. Simmons. The film opens Nov. 17, 2017.

In this hilarious video from MTV, each of the young mutants from "X-Men: Apocalypse" share what's been bothering them at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.Evan Peters, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp and Lana Condor answer questions as their characters, with Storm complaining about Mystique's nudity, Quicksilver giving Cyclops a hard time about Jean Grey, and all of them taking jabs at father figures Magneto, Professor X and Apocalypse.

"I can rip on my dad, because he's my dad," Quicksilver cautions Jubilee, shortly before revealing he's a little self-conscious about his hair.

The video features profanity and sexual references, but it's a hilarious look at what these gifted youngsters might say in a therapy session.
