I guess it was only a matter of time before it happened and the timing is pretty much perfect given that X-Men Apocalypse premiers in theaters this week; Men.com proudly (I’m assuming ‘proudly’) presents the XXX-Men…. yikes! Not entirely sure how I feel about this given my affinity for all things X and we haven’t seen a lick of a single trailer… yet. But I can tell you this: I WILL be buying these scenes. Purely for scientific reasons, of course….
… yeah… I barely believe that, myself. I should point out that despite the subject matter, this is a 95% SWF post with 100% NSFW links. Click at your own peril.
The cast they’ve chosen is surprisingly kinda good with one exception; Landon Mycles (or Marcus Mojo, if you prefer) as Colossus. Not that Landon/Marcus isn’t damned attractive or anything. It’s just that Colossus is supposed to be a HUGE bodybuilding slab of Russian man meat. Landon/Marcus looks more like your All-American, Boy-Next-Door archetype. Now is that gonna stop me from viewing all the scenes? Hell to the NO.
So who’ve we got? Let’s take inventory:
- Wolverine played by Colby Keller: totally on-board with this, although I would’ve appreciated Colby Jansen more in the role. He’s actually Canadian and he’s got more of the rough-and-tumble body I would want from Logan. I think Men.com is more just trying to pattern after Hugh’s iteration of the character.
- Iceman played by Mike DeMarko: Yes… just yes… F*CK yes.
- Pyro played by Paul Cannon: Pretty sure I read somewhere that Paul is a pretty unapologetic racist or general tool bag, so yeah, this kinda works.
- Cyclops played by Brenner Bolton: no clue who this guy is other than he looks damned good in those visors. Cyke is my least favorite character so we’re moving on.
- Colossus play by Landon Mycles: see above and just know that I’m right.
- Magento played by Paddy O’Brian: Let me preface this by saying Paddy O’Brian is brutally hot and could do a million bad things to me that I would cherish for eternity. That being said: NO. Why? Dumb. Magneto should be older anyway. They should’ve gotten someone like Rocco Steele, Dallas Steel or even Dirk Caber for the role. Like HELLO? Why is Men.com missing out on a golden opportunity to play up some Daddy fetish stuff with the XXX-Men? DERP.
At any rate, you’ll have to head over to Men.com for more pictures, preview trailers, etc. Before I depart though, can I just point out who (IMHO) would’ve made a much, MUCH better Colossus (at least in terms of physical stature)?
Zeb Atlas! DUH.
I can’t breath! Oh my Stars and Garters, I CAN’T breath! It’s here; the trailer for X-Men Apocalypse!
I won’t even bore you with text. Just watch and let the invariable goosebumps overwhelm you!
I CAN’T BREATH!!!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! I chortle in my joy! The official trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Deadpool move is here! And I mean the REAL trailer; not the trailer for the trailer that came out yesterday…. although, that was pretty hilarious… I’m talkin’ like for realsies, yo.
Can we also briefly take a moment to note the apparent cameo by the X-Men’s resident organic-steel powerhouse, Colossus?!? I love how they did him this time. His previous incarnations have always been a tad too shiny for my taste. They were also missing the segmented plating look that the Deadpool team have just nailed! Like… with a big effing hammer!
At any rate, I feel the need to stop fangirling all over this post and just let the trailer speak for itself. Sidebar though? Did we notice the cross-comic-universe dig at Ryan’s foray into the DC Universe as Green Lantern? We’re talking serious metaphysical side-eye here. ENJOY!
Floored. Absolutely floored! That’s the only way I can describe my reactions to these EPIC pieces rendered by artist Joe Phillips. He takes some of Comic Books’ most iconic characters and pairs them with actors and actresses from Hollywood’s Golden Age. I grew up in a house that watched movies and television programs that highly featured these legendary performers, so this was an extra special treat for me; particularly Lucille Ball as The Scarlet Witch!
I wonder if I can get him to do one with James Dean as Gambit? Wouldn’t that be just an absolutely PERFECT pairing?!?
Because there has GOT to be a parallel universe where this MUST exist, gifted illustrator and art director, Josh Lynch, brings to life some high-profile Marvel heroes and villains in the form of dogs! These canine comic book characters hit all the right notes and make you just want to bring them home to poop on your carpet, tear through your home and potentially either save or ruin the day.
If I had to levy any criticism on these fantastic pieces, it’s that it’s one big sausage-fest. Where’s Phoenix? Where’s Rogue? WHERE’S STORM?!?!?
Oh gawd… oh no… Apocalypse??? Why does he look so? Umm… so THAT?!?
Entertainment Weekly recently shared some exclusive pictures to the much anticipated, X-Men Apocalypse movie, due out in 2016. Some of the set images gave me chills and then others, I just shudder. I really and truly do NOT get why it is that the great and powerful En Sabah Nur looks like Ivan-freakin-Ooze from the Power Ranger’s Movie! There is nothing even remotely threatening about him with the possible exception of that multi-layered, purple, cheerleader skirt he’s trying to make happen. It’s not gonna happen. Stop trying to make that happen.
I’m slightly on board with Pyslocke’s outfit and I appreciate that they clearly patterned it after her most iconic costume; but even that is bordering on a little too much with all the peek-a-boo fleshy parts under her midnight blue ninja garb.
Storm, I can’t see too well. She’s a little too purple and silver for my taste, but since I can’t see the front, I’m reserving judgement. Kudos for the mohawk though. We like that. We like it bunches and bunches.
And Michael Fassbender just looks extra delicious all sweaty and perturbed like that.
