An Extra Life On… Captain America And X-Men First Class

Paul W Franklin writes weekly for Bleeding Cool about the life of an Extra. “Anyone who can’t get it right this time will feel my dick in their arse! It’s not big but there’s a lot of weight behind it.” Another day in the life of an Extra, another day of casual sexual harassment. This […]

Saturday Trending Topics: Conspiracies And Secrets

I’ve seen a lot of new conspiracy theories spun up in response to Rich’s debunking of the original one on Saturday, but the truth is we might never get the inside scoop about how this plan was developed until one of the DC Five or Diane Nelson write their bios. Or maybe Rich will tell […]

Friday Trending Topics: X-Men First Class Beats Thor’s Midnight Opening

In the middle of a very DC-centric week, there’s still been an awful lot of excitement about the US opening of X-Men First Class. Brendon told you this was a good movie a couple weeks ago, and it seems that pretty much everyone agrees with him. And with the acclaim comes some controversy as well, […]

Monday Trending Topics: Watch The Skies

In day 2 of the X-Men: First Class skywriting campaign, the logos spread from LA to other parts of California. You have to wonder if they’ll start appearing above cities around the rest of the country as the week progresses towards the June 3 US opening day. That would be pretty cool, even though the […]

Californians, Look Up In The Sky: The X-Men Logo Skywriting Campaign Is Spreading

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool told you about an interesting X-Men First Class marketing campaign that involved skywriting the X-Men circle-X logo over the skies of Los Angeles. Right now, the campaign appears to be spreading to other areas. Reports have the logos spotted in Newport Beach and San Diego so far. Where will they appear next? […]

X-Men Logos In The Sky Above Los Angeles [Updated With Video]

When I first saw The Surrogates writer Robert Venditti mention this a few hours ago, I dismissed it as perhaps a one-time prank or coincidence.  But it would appear that there is a rather unusual and ambitious marketing campaign for X-Men: First Class in progress right now in the sky above Los Angeles: [blackbirdpie url=”http://twitter.com/#!/caseymckinnon/status/75003095167414272″] […]


Tuesday Trending Topics: Matthew Vaughn Takes Names

He seems to be done with the Kick Ass part of the equation, according to what he told Brendon earller. He said lots of other things too, about X-Men First Class, his super spy project with Mark Millar, and more. Speaking of, it was a big X-Men First class day on BC, with more coming […]


Matthew Vaughn On His Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons Super Spy Project

We don’t yet know the name of the Matthew Vaughn–Mark Millar–Dave Gibbons super spy project, an undertaking that is already underway as a comic and later set to become a film. This is apparently because some kind of legal clearance needs to be attained, but this was expected to be resolved weeks ago. I wonder […]

Why The Kick-Ass 2 Movie Probably Won’t Ever Happen

Time for another slice of Matthew Vaughn pie. Later on, we’ll get to some in depth discussion of X-Men: First Class, with both Vaughn and screenwriter Jane Goldman, but before then, let’s take care of Any Other Business. Speaking to Vaughn on Sunday, the subject of Kick-Ass, and its potential sequel, was pretty much guaranteed […]

Sunday Trending Topics: X-Men First Class And Getting It

The thing that jumps out at me the most about Brendon Connelly‘s embargo-induced non-review of X-Men First Class is the reference to X2.  Because I’ve always thought of X2 as a level-up in the recent history of the comic book movie, in the same way that Tim Burton‘s Batman was for the generation before, and […]

Wednesday Trending Topics: An X-Men First Class Exclusive, An Avengers Filming Mystery

The BC was dominated by film and tv today, what with Rich on television (again!) and an X-Men First Class trailer exclusive and Brendon unearthing a bunch of other film stories, as usual.  Also, there’s Greg Capullo Batman. Tomorrow? The world. Today… this: Most-Read Comic Stories Today: Greg Capullo’s First Batman And Robin Pencils This […]
