Old Man Xavier is about to stage a comeback — and he's got a brand new outfit just for the occasion!
As he's done with somewhat astonishing frequency over the last several weeks and months, director Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter once again to reveal new secrets about "X-Men: Days of Future Past," his first time directing an X-movie since "X2: X-Men United." This latest revelation is perhaps the greatest to date, too: Patrick Stewart back in action as Professor X.
After being Biebered (that's the opposite of humbled, y'all) at last night's MTV Movie Awards, "Marvel's the Avengers" director Joss Whedon worked the crowd into an uproarious applause by just mentioning 2015's "Avengers 2." Since that first film shattered all box office records to become literally one of the biggest financial successes of all time, it's not surprising that fans want more.
"The only pressure is the pressure that is there every time I do a new project," explained Whedon. "Is it going to be good? It is going to be different? Is there even a reason to make another one? Is there a reason for this to be my next thing? Can I pull it off?"
It may not have much in the way of clear footage, but this new TV spot for "Man of Steel" still sheds a lot of light on the upcoming Superman film. The clip features an ominous, static-y image of General Zod wearing his alien helmet and giving Superman an ultimatum. The ultimatum threatens to put the people of Earth in harm's way, thus giving us a glimpse at Zod's master plan. Just judging by this threatening voice over alone, "Man of Steel" seems to have much more punching-potential than "Superman Returns." The spot also ditches the previous trailers' more contemplative and serious tone, switching that out for a creepier, more thrilling angle. I have to say, this is the clip that finally got me excited about "Man of Steel."
Check out General Zod's full message below.

If you missed out the exclusive "Iron Man 3" clip debuted during last night's MTV Movie Awards, you're in luck! The clip is online and awesome. The awards show, which gave "Marvel's the Avengers" a Quinjet full of awards, contained an extensive look at the assault on Tony Stark's oceanside property. The clip gives us a look at Tony Stark's new prototype armor and features one of the most original uses of a grand piano ever captured on film.
Last night's 2013 MTV Movie Awards were an explosive celebration of 2012's films, and that celebration wouldn't be complete without some "Avengers." Luckily Earth's Mightiest Heroes took home a few Golden Buckets for saving the Earth from Loki's invading army in last year's mega-blockbuster, "Marvel's the Avengers." The film took home Best Fight, Best Villain and Movie of the Year, becoming the most awarded film of the night.
"We are humbled to be standing here," said director Joss Whedon while claiming the award for Movie of the Year. "We're not humbled, we won. What's the opposite of humbled? We're Biebered to be standing here." Whedon accepted the award alongside Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston.
The director himself is shown outside of a spherical set, which we assume is Cerebro (a.k.a. the spherical set). The set piece is monstrous, just the right size to help telepathic mutants make contact with any mutant mind on Earth. We can also assume that this is the original trilogy Cerebro and not the more low-tech version shown in "X-Men: First Class." Unless, of course, Professor X and friends have made some upgrades in the decade that's passed in-universe since the last film.
2012 was a big year for superhero movies, with both "Marvel's the Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises" breaking records. But as super as each film is, they're up against some stiff competition at the MTV Movie Awards. The two blockbusters are not only up against each other, but they're also competing against two Oscar-winning films and the biggest comedy of last year. But... there can be only one Movie Of The Year.
The winner is crowned via your votes, so get to voting! And loyal Splash Pagers, which comic book film do you most want to see awarded the Golden Bucket at this Sunday's MTV Movie Awards? "The Avengers" redefined the genre and became the blockbuster of all blockbusters, but "The Dark Knight Rises" finished off Christopher Nolan's groundbreaking and definitive Batman trilogy.
If you need help casting your vote, check out the trailers for the two films below. Again, don't forget to vote for your favorite and tune in to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Sunday April 14th at 9 p.m.!
When Christian Bale gets a nomination for doing shirtless push-ups in a prison-pit, you know you're dealing with the MTV Movie Awards. Bale's Batman joins three other buff dudes (and one teddy bear) in the Best Shirtless Performance category. One thing's for sure, though: Batman's only shirtless because he has a city to save and has to get back into peak physical condition. What about you, Magic Mike? Are you shirtless for such a grand cause? Didn't think so!
To prepare you for this Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, here is Bale's shirtless performance as Bruce Wayne in "The Dark Knight Rises." Don't forget to vote for your favorite and tune in to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Sunday April 14th at 9 p.m.
"Cap is much more about realism. They’re tonally quite different genres, almost, so things get a lot more way out in Thor so the chance of tonal overlap is pretty slim," says Markus.
Mc Feely adds, "It’ll feel like a different genre, we can say that. We’re very proud of the first one because it was our love letter, and Joe Johnston's love letter, to Indiana Jones, so it had that Forties vibe to it. This is much more of a modern conspiracy political thriller. So it's a fast ride. The action will fell commensurate. You’ll see Cap fight in a way that you have never seen before, or at least not for him. The DNA is the same, but the animal is different."
