FleshEatingZipper says: "I sat down today (finally) and watched the latest in the X-Men franchise. Read on after the jump to see what I thought about the new film. The latest installment of the X-Men series of movies takes us back in time to the age when Erik Lensherr (Magneto) and Charles Xavier (Professor X) were working together toward a mutual goal. One could say they were “friends”, though one would have to admit the “friendship” was somewhat tenuous."
With Disney reportedly looking for a person of color to fill the role of Magneto in the MCU, Denzel Washington appears to be one actor being eyed.
If the movies have taught audiences anything, it’s that fictional characters make a lot of dumb decisions – like, a ton of them. All the time. In most cases, this happens as a result of lazy screenwriting – filmmakers force characters to do things that they’d probably avoid doing in real life in order to move the plot forwards. Sometimes it’s just easier that way, and who – really – is all that bothered about things like “realism”? Right?
