Ryan Reynolds has repeatedly said that he is less than happy with his appearance in the 2011 "Green Lantern" movie - he even admits that he has never seen it. Ryan Reynolds provided this explanation to EW, highlighting how although there were a lot of people working hard to make Green Lantern successful, Warner Bros was more concerned with releasing the ...

TL;DR: It is possible, but not very easy to pull off. Real life examples: One bullet, two deer killed: A few years ago, a 10 year old boy on his first hunting trip killed two deer with one round. One bullet, two men killed: In 2009, a British sniper in Afghanistan killed two suspected insurgents who were fleeing on a motorcycle; the bullet passed ...

From his wiki: Wolverine's natural healing also affords him the virtual immunity to poisons and most drugs, except in massive doses. For example, it is extremely difficult for him to become intoxicated from alcohol. So to answer your question: Intoxication is a state of being poisoned. Shouldn't his powers prevent him from it? They do, largely. ...

Its the same as his comics counterpart: After the healing factor was given to him, it made his normal cells as well as his cancerous cells unable to die, giving him a heavily scarred appearance beneath his suit. - Wikipedia So these cancerous cells made his weird appearance and his healing factor assumed it was part of himself and keep it in the same ...

They're the "first class" of Xavier's school for gifted youngsters, as well as the "first class" of the X-Men. With regards to the title being some sort of pun intended to denote the characters as "high quality", I'm going to argue that it's not and is simply intended to indicate they are the first class of both Charles' school and the X-Men. From the ...

That post-credit scene is CANON as the writers said during their reddit AMA: Q: IS THE AFTER CREDIT SCENE CANON??? Please tell me I’m dying to know! A: Yes, the after credit scene is CANON! Don't expect that device to stick around beyond this movie, though! So yes, Vanessa is alive and in a universe that is beautiful and just, Green Lantern movie and ...

Its Hugh Jackman, the actor who plays Wolverine in the "mainstream" x-men movie series. Its one of many fourth-wall-breaking Hugh Jackman / Wolverine jokes in the movie.

It's really clear that Magneto's powers are extremly enhanced. Let's compare his newly enhanced powers to his old ones: X-Men: First Class: From Wikipedia: In the middle of the movie: ... and [Erik] Lehnsherr uses his magnetic power to lift Shaw's submarine from the water and deposit it on land. At the end: Fearing the mutants, both fleets fire ...

It's a pun. 'First-class' as in 'excellent' or 'high quality', and "first class" as in they are the initial group of students.

He actually tries something very similar in one of the X-Men movies, where he controls Sabertooth and has him grab Magneto by the throat during a standoff with police, where Magneto has taken all the police weapons and pointed them back at the officers. Magneto responds by firing one of the floating guns and holding back the bullet from penetrating the ...

Ryan Reynolds is Canadian by birth, therefore, he uses this line as a reference. He was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He is not very fond of the Green Lantern movie as is seen in many of his interviews. He also stated it in Deadpool first movie when he said that don't make the suit green or animated. He thought that it was a mistake to take ...

Plagarism... NO. Plagiarism is using someone else's work without giving proper credit. Copyright infringement... Possibly. Copyright infringement is using someone else's work without getting that person's permission.

Yes, but no. It's feasible. But not likely. Consider it only shattered two skulls and deflected off the third. In fact, this bit seems to mirror a Mythbusters segment: A bullet from a .50 caliber Desert Eagle pistol cannot penetrate 25 watermelons. Tory and Kari set up a line of melons, but Kari's shot only penetrated the first three. They noted ...

There are a couple of ways to interpret the series of events and how each mutant has lost their powers. 1. They're both getting old. At the time of Logan, Xavier is about 97 years old. Logan's physical body is reaching about 150 years old (although depending on the timeline shenanigans he could mentally be a lot older). Logan hasn't been kind to his body,...

Wolverine and Sabretooth were not in the American Revolution. They were born in the mid 1800s, nearly a century after the Revolution (1775-1783). The first scene of X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes place in 1845, when Wolverine is seemingly a pre-teen (typical age mutant powers emerge). The American Civil on the other hand, did have James and Victor fighting ...

No, they are completely different characters. As discussed in this Sci-Fi & Fantasy question and this Movies & TV question, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are rare exceptions to the general licensing deal that Marvel made with Fox. Part of that deal is that Fox has the exclusive rights to make movies about any of the "mutants" in the Marvel Universe:...

Yes, dialogue referring to the Hindu God Krishna was removed from the final cut of the film. From this article (which I've edited down somewhat); Hindus are thankful to 20th Century Fox and Director Bryan Singer for deleting reference to Lord Krishna in the movie “X-Men: Apocalypse”.   Hindu statesman Rajan Zed wrote to 20th Century Fox in March ...

Deadpool is not cured of his cancer. When he gets his healing factor, so does his cancer, becoming super cancer. His healing factor fights it at an accelerated rate, but neither wins. Hence his face. And anti-telepathic brain. And insanity. The cancer is just mutations in normal cells. Wade is genetically predisposed to it, so the healing factor can't stop ...

There is a very good list by denofgeek: Early on, Wade discusses how horrible his father was. This is 2/3 on point to the comics. In the comics, there were three different takes on what Wade’s father was like. First there’s the Christopher Priest take, where Wade’s father was a lowlife who walked out on him when he was a child. Then Fabian Nicieza had his ...

As stated on the Marvel Comics webpage for X-Men: Xavier spent months recruiting his early students (code-named Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Marvel Girl), dubbing them "X-Men" because each possessed an "extra" ability normal humans lacked.

Because they know what Magneto can do. After the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Erik's ability to control magnetic metals are well known and he was a wanted criminal. So after getting information about him, they avoided bringing any kind of metal at all when attempting to capture him. But going without any kind of weapon would be stupid. The bow and ...

From Wolverine V3 #33 In this scene Mystique seems to be sad that Wolverine abuses pills and drugs. It doesn't seem logical for her to be sad for they can't really hurt him. But maybe the backstory might be suggesting him having some probably romantic problems. But still, this comic shows that Wolverine can certainly drink for reasons other than taste. In ...

To give the audience the sense of meeting the characters for the first time, in every movie. From a 2014 interview with Simon Kinberg by Steve Weintraub for Collider on X-Men: Days of Future Past: KINBERG: Yeah. One of the things, and this is an idea that came out of my work with Matthew Vaughn was, we didn’t want to do what most sequels do, which is ...

Firstly, the post-credits scene from X-Men 3 hints at his survival. If for any reason you can't view the video, this is what happens (from the wiki): After the credits there is a scene at the hospital, where the comatose man from the video that Xavier showed his students is lying in a hospital bed. Dr. Moira MacTaggart enters the room to see the ...

According to this interview with Bryan Singer: “Is that the Scarlet Witch? No, that’s his little sister,” Singer said. “I even had a line which I cut, where Quicksilver’s mother says to the little girl, ‘Go up and bug your sister,’ and the little girl says, ‘She bugs me!’ You never see the older sister, but it was to imply that there is an older sister ...

Are the two movies supposed to exist in the same universe? Yes...and No The "universe" is not exactly stable and has been rebooted and recreated a few times as described in this Deadpool/X-Men Timeline question & answer. Bryan Singer adds, “I rebooted the universe so now anything can happen,” with the caveat that their theory of time-travel and ...

Probably because Gina Carano asked them to. I couldn't find any statements from her one way or the other (I doubt anyone is brave enough to ask her to her face), but it's probably the same reason that any other actress does or doesn't get naked in a movie. Actresses in movies that have to do sex scenes agree to do so upfront, and typically require ...

Xavier was the person who killed the 7 mutants that died in the Westchester incident. In-universe, the reporter described that event as being nearly identical to the accident at the hotel when Xavier has a seizure, so we're obviously supposed to piece together the connection. We don't know for sure who those 7 mutants were that died in Westchester, but ...
