Brian Wood’s New X-Men Series Launches Next Week
Wednesday, May 29th marks the release of Brian Wood’s X-Men #1. This new X-Men series will focus mainly on the women of the X-Men. Check out the preview above and the solicitation below.

Meanwhile, Jubilee has come home, and she’s brought with her an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the earth’s survival…or its destruction. Against a backdrop of what seems like an alien invasion and an eons-spanning war between brother and sister, Storm steps up and puts together a team to protect the child and stop a new threat that could destroy all life on earth!

Quicksilver Joins the X-Men in Days of Future Past
Today, director Bryan Singer tweeted that not only will Quicksilver be in his upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past but that he will be played by Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story). His tweet read:
Now, this may or may not cause some complications with Marvel Studios’ Avengers 2. If you hadn’t already heard, director Joss Whedon came out and said that both Quicksilver and his sister, Scarlet Witch, would be in the upcoming Avengers sequel. It seems that both Disney/Marvel, who are behind Avengers, and 20th Century Fox, who is behind the X-Men films, both have movie rights to the characters. It makes sense since in the comics Quicksilver is not only a longstanding member of The Avengers but he is also a mutant and the son of Magneto.
But what’s going to happen now that both of these directors have claimed dibs on Quicksilver? Are the fans going to get two different Quicksilvers from two different movies? Will X-Men: Days of Future Past feature a younger Quicksilver while Avengers 2 will feature an older Quicksilver? Will this be the first step into Disney/Marvel and 20th Century Fox building an even bigger Marvel cinematic universe? We do not know. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Now tell us, how do you feel about this news? What would you like to see happen in Quicksilver’s cinematic future?

Quick Reviews by Drewtos
Iron Man 3
Review: Iron Man 3 definitely didn’t meet my high expectations but it was still enjoyable. Overall, it’s funny and has decent action. There’s a lot of scenes with Tony Stark out of his Iron Man suit which I appreciated. The only thing I didn’t like, and what prevents me from giving this movie a higher grade, was the twist with the movie’s villain. Other than that I enjoyed it. Check it out if you haven’t already done so. I’d recommend catching a matinee.
Fast & Furious 6
Review: In theaters tomorrow, Fast & Furious 6 is everything you would expect from a Fast & Furious movie… minus the drag racing. The action is amazing and sometimes too ridiculous and too unbelievable, but I still loved it. It’s action packed from beginning to end and a real pleasure to watch on the big screen. Go see it this weekend.
