More casting news coming for Ultimate Spider-Man, Arrow, and even a Titans show on TNT?! Whoa, yeah, that’s real! Oh! And let me not forget the line, “And much more!” That line’s important.
The X-men finally get their shit together, having defeated their Revenants (literally their inner demons) along with their long and drawn-out pasts, and now coherently assembled with Bishop, a large Revenant bear and Spiral, the nostalgic X-Men villain. Previously, the Revenant Queen revealed herself with some surprise, as
It goes without saying that I’ve been less than kind to X-Men: Days of Future Past. I’ve mocked Storm‘s costume, laughed at the PEZ dispensers looking Sentinels, and even criticized Bryan Singer’s return to the franchise in general.

Being able to accurate portray the on-screen interpretations of a character’s funny book counterpart is now the rule rather than the exception. Simply put, Singer has rather large shoes to fill.
