: MOVIE / COMICS :
the NEW X-Men 3 Announcement Teaser Trailer is out. don't wait. = go check out both the regular and high-definition versions :: here ::
based on the trailer: the color palette seems more intense now = cool. with a heightened (TVC) sense of "realism/hyper-realism" - which i insist a movie of this calibre and magnitutde requires and needs, IMHO ... and from what i see so far? it seems to be going that way ... no more "hesitation", no more "partial usage of powers", let's see an all-out-battle between the forces of good and evil and we shall see who's the Last Mutant Standing ...
*please do not read below if you don't want to spoil the teaser viewing*
: DEDUCTIONS / ASSUMPTIONS :
we see Colossus (*whoo-hoo!*) / Wolverine / Rogue / Storm / Iceman and Kitty walking down the corridors - when are they gonna feature Colossus more? dude's steel-skin effect "hard to conjure in post, izzit?" *dammit* ~ bad enough he isn't a "Russian" (ala comicbooks) but to deny him "face-time"? :p
Wolverine standing amidst explosive chaos, chopping on his cigar ... and in a later scene, Storm jumps in to save him = i deduce they are in a Danger Room Simulation Session! are they? are they? that would be effin' cool that would be (IF that were lah *sigh*) ...
seems they were in a danger room session :p
the elemental fury that is Storm's power, waiting to be unleashed - something which bugged me in the 2 previous films, where the mutants had to "raise their hands" to simulate the "operation of their powers", somehow seem a bit trite, IMHO.
it's effin' Juggarnaut! / Japanese-looking-dude = Sunfire? / Magneto / ?Gambit? / Callisto / ??? / Pyro / JEAN GREY!
yes, i reckon Jean / Dark Phoenix-ish-clothes, has joined up with The Brotherhood = *kewl* ... altho she doesn't seem that "focused", is she? like neither fully "evil" or just plain "drugged-out-looking", ya know?
Magneto breaking out the Juggarnaut? dude looks like his wearing a leather-bra, innit?
yes, Jean Grey is awake and back!
or has the Dark Phoenix arisen? judging from the effortless execution of her powers in destroying the steel doors (as opposed to her effort in lifting the Blackbird in X2), seems her powers has increased enormously = DARK PHOENIX! *whoo-hoo!*
Moiria ? / Beast / Colossus / Kitty Pryde / Iceman / Rogue @ a funeral = presumably for Jean (maybe at the start of the movie?) ~ which shows a great looking Beast btw (as opposed to the mockery i made him out to be in the first place :p)
what a stately looking Beast here = *kudos* - seems about right, this time around ... but we shall see, eh? :p
aaahhhhh - ye good ol' days of comicdom = Wolverine, Beast and Storm in the cockpit of the blackbird ... great 'do btw, Storm! - and yes, i figured it is the Ultimate Storm-'do :)
The Brotherhood Of Mutants walk the earth! *shuddered-shiver-down-me-spine* = can imagine this'll be quite a scene in the darkened-cinema! :)
the bridge collapses ... but is it all Magneto's powers? ... or does Dark Phoenix help? ....
*well, im effin' excited, aren't you?* :)
