X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
The newest trailer for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” has hit, and it’s easily the most revealing yet. Narrated by Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, it gives an elegant elevator pitch for the film with almost every cast member getting a bit of screentime.
Meanwhile, Buzzfeed has confirmed that Anna Paquin will still appear as Rogue in the upcoming film, despite reports of her being cut. That said, the studio stated Paquin’s appearance is essentially a cameo.

WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?
New developments for the adaptation of “Who is Jake Ellis?”: “Hanna” screenwriter Seth Lochhead has been tapped to write the script. Lochhead is also currently working on the upcoming film adaptation for Sony’s “Shadow of the Colossus” video game. “Harry Potter’s” David Yates is attached to direct.
Mark Millar’s Millarworld film count is growing — “Superior,” Millar and Leinil Yu’s 2010 limited series, is getting an adaptation courtesy 20th Century Fox and producer Matthew Vaughn.
“This project actually means an awful lot to me. It’s something Leinil and I really loved doing and, after years of wanting to work together, gave us our chance to collaborate,” Millar said via the Millarworld Forums. “Matthew’s producing, which is great news, and the kind of names he’s been chatting about to write and direct is really genuinely exciting.
“Millarworld’s building quite a little home at Fox. Universal has the rights to three Millarworld properties and we have some interesting news in the next couple of weeks about another,” Millar continued. “But Fox now has a mighty five Millarworld books in various stages of development, ‘The Secret Service’ with Matthew and Jane this October (starring Colin Firth, Taron Egerton and Sam Jackson), ‘Nemesis’ (screenplay completed by Joe and Matthew Carnahan), ‘Kindergarten Heroes’ (screenplay by Carter Blanchard due this month), Starlight produced by Simon Kinberg and now ‘Superior’ with Matthew. The kind of talent Fox attaches is impressive these days. From Jim Mangold to Singer to Josh Trank on the Marvel movies has been pretty amazing and I’m delighted with the kind of people they’re attaching to the Millarworld books. They’re genuinely nice people to work with and I’m more excited than anyone to see this all coming together.”
