Let's talk Star X-Wars Men

Or more specifically the rumors surrounding the upcoming X-Men and Star Wars movies.

First the X-Men. X-Men: First Class was sort of a weird movie. It was the prequel that was kind of a reboot. If you ignore X-Men 3 and Wolverine, it works as a prequel. If you accept that while both those movies suck, they are indeed part of the original X-men movie universe, it's a straight up reboot. It just doesn't work with those two crapfests no matter how hard you try to shoehorn it in.

So where does that leave its sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past? Well, Bryan Singer just announced that the majority of the original cast is onboard, plus Ian McKellen and Jean Luc Picard, and the current rumor (straight from the tweet of Rob Liefeld) is that Hugh Jackman is also in talks to appear. It would seem that Fox is perfectly happy pretending that X3 and Wolverine never existed. Hugh Jackman has already said that the Wolverine sequel is supposed to be a stand alone story that doesn't tie in with any of the other films. Personally I'm fine with the decision to cut bait. No sense in building on the awful decisions made in X3 and Wolverine.

Now Star Wars. I really haven't felt up to blogging about all the Star Wars crazy Star Wars rumors that have been flying around since Disney purchased the rights. Every day there's something new and it's exhausting. The big big rumor right now, that seems like it's almost confirmed is that Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class) dropped out of the X-Men sequel to direct the as yet untitled Episode VII.

Also being rumored is that Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Bake, ROTJ, Indiana Jones) has been hired to write co-write episode VII. Of course he's the 5th writer I've seen everyone on the internet jump all over so who knows on that one.

As far as rumors that sound smart enough to be true, it's been reported that Disney is looking to take the Marvel Comics shared universe approach to the new Star Wars films. Meaning that characters introduced in the previous movies (ie Dengar!) and the new films (ie Jorus C'Baoth!) would be spun of into new films as indirect sequels. Again, not sure how this is considered a rumor. I mean this is the whole point of Disney buying Star Wars in the first place. They're not going to remake the originals, nerds would literally storm the magic kingdom.
