NEXT BOURNE A PREQUEL?


SEQUEL HEAVEN FOR 2011/2012


Coming soon to a theatre near you...

It looks like the Hollywood machines are pumping away to make sure we never lose a good thing on the tube and the big screen. Just take a look at what sequels and prequels will be made and coming our way in 2011/2012. Its going to two back to back years of Sequels!

SUPERMAN GETS A DATE!

MATHEW BOMER
HENRY CAVILL

The Superman reboot entitled THE MAN OF STEEL has been set a slate for summer 2012.

The race is on now to find the next Superman actor. Already mentioned in an earlier article, Superman Returns actor and Christopher Reeve lookalike, Brandon Routh is out of this one as well as previous director, Bryan Singer. Warner Bros wanted a fresh new edge on this superhero movie franchise and brought in Chris Nolan of The Dark Knight fame to inject some magic.

The front runners for Clark Kent/Superman are Tom Welling (Shown pictured about looking over the earth) of Smallville fame (but he is constantly turning this one down because he does not want to wear tights?) Mathew Bomer and Henry Cavill.

Lets see who makes the cut. In the meantime, look out for a more flirty bachelor type Clark Kent in this one, who's parents are still alive and who's Superman counterpart isnt the type to be able to pick up a planet!

MAN OF STEEL goes into production next summer.

FIRST CLASS XAVIER IS McAVOY


British actor James McAvoy ("Wanted,"" "Atonement") has been picked to play a young Charles Xavier in the coming soon, "X-Men: First Class" a prequel to X MEN and in between of WOLVERINE.

The story is said to "chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time.

Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men."

Patrick Stewart played the wheelchair-bound older version of the character in the four previous "X-Men" films. Matthew Vaughn directs 'First Class' which aims to kick off shooting this Summer in the UK for a release next June.
