Jim Carrey Joins Kick Ass 2

5 Sep

Jim Carrey has officially joined the cast of Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. Carrey will play Colonel Stars who assembles a group of misfit superheroes to fight evil. This will be Carrey’s first comic book movie since Batman Forever where he played The Riddler.

Without Matthew Vaughn directing, I’m scared that the dark humour and grittiness of the first Kick Ass movie will be traded for over the top performances and slapstick humor. Let’s pray that Kick Ass 2 is closer to The Avengers than Mystery Men.

X-Men Sequel: Days of Future Past

3 Aug

Producer Brian Singer confirmed that the sequel to X-Men: First Class will follow Marvel’s Days of Future Past storyline. Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men:First Class) will direct the sequel.

If you don’t know about Days of Future Past, here’s a little synopsis…

The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, giant robots or Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future. (The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe: Alternate Universes 2005 gave the numerical designation of “Days of Future Past Earth as Earth-811).

Bryan Singer is excited and promises us a great movie.  Uh-huh, I heard that before and then audiences were given X-Men: The Last Stand.
