In the event you couldn’t glean the fact that I habitually stalk all remotely comic book-related news (especially those with franchises starting with the letter X), let me clarify it for you:
“I habitually stalk comic book related news.”
There. I’m glad we settled that.
In the interest of my news-stalking, allow me to present exhibit X, Bryan Singer’s Instagram feed; which lately has been practically oozing tidbits of the upcoming X-Men movie, due out May 27, 2016. I know, right? I can barely contain myself as I X out the days on my calendar in anticipation of the 3rd chapter in the X-Men First Class series. Which reminds me, I need to buy more red sharpies.
Bryan’s latest post sent ice-cold chills down my spine because of what I saw: Angel, strapped and tied down as circus attendants gawk at his impressive wings.
Given that the next installment of the series is titled X-Men Apocalypse, any devoted followers to the Children of the Atom, MUST realize that this could very well signal the birth of Archangel.
Allow me to also point out the Ben Hardy, known for his work on EastEnders, was recently cast in a “key role” in the upcoming X-Movie. Just TRY to tell me that guy doesn’t just scream Warren Worthington III?!?!? Also? WOOF!
We all know from the end of the last movie, that Apocalypose’s horsemen were featured in the way, way, waaaaaaaaay background, so that can only mean he intends to give rise to DEATH (a.k.a. Archangel). I am tickled Pink, Purple and Chartreuse at the sheer speculation of this. I may be grasping for straws here but DAMN IT, these straws require rigorous amounts of grasping!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to read old issues of X-Factor and the debut of Apocalypse and his Four Horsement so I can make unfair comparisons when the movie is released…
… don’t judge me!
