X-Geeks Unite!

I am so looking forward to a few comic book summer movies. I certainly cannot complain being a comic book geek since I have Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern and my most anticipated comic book movie, X-Men: First Class.

There are a few reasons why I am very excited for this X-Men movie. Now my favorite comic book movie is the 2nd X-Men movie in the franchise, X2. I liked the first one and the third one isn't so bad and Wolverine: Origins was absolutely horrible. So I am not sure what X-Men: First Class will be like, hopefully it will be better than Wolverine.

I do have faith in the director. He also directed another fantastic comic book adaptation in Kick Ass and making it his own. So I do think he can do the X-Men justice. I also love that is set in the past, back in the 60's around the Cuban Missile Crisis. Having the awesome Kevin Bacon in the film doesn't hurt either. But of course, I am stoked to have my all-time favorite X-Men, Banshee, in the film.

This summer cannot come fast enough!  I'll have to do a List-Mania sometime and list my favorite comic book movies.


  1. I'm with ya! For reasons I can't explain, I love the comic book movie genre.

  2. I'm really excited about seeing X-Men: First Class! It'll be so cool to see Professor X and Magneto when they were friends/allies! I agree that Wolverine was not so hot, but I have high hopes for this movie! Can't wait! I'm also excited about seeing Thor, Green Lantern and Captain America! The summer is going to ROCK!

  3. I'm not sure I agree on the hate for Wolverine, but I think I just enjoyed it because it was fun and entertaining to watch. The characters he meets along the way have really cool abilities. But I have no ability to comment on whether or not it followed the comics, etc.

    Totally can't wait for Thor though! Looks so amazing from the previews! :)

  4. Wolverine had a ton of plot holes and just plain lazy writing.

    This film and the X-Men films loosely follow the comics and that sorta thing doesn't bug me.
