Comic Timing Episode 156 – X-Men: Days of Future Past

xmen-days-of-future-past

To me, my X-Men! Kris joins Ian for a late night conversation on the latest movie in the up and down X-Men franchise of movies, X-Men: Days of Future Past. We go into what makes this one work, what could have been done a little bitter, the retcon oh the retcon, the diversity of new characters, new meeting old, Rogue’s deleted scenes, the very end of the movie and what’s to come, and the X-franchise trying to play nice with Fantastic Four. And Sentinels outside of a Danger Room sequence! Woo!

We also make random deviations to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Dinklage’s attempt at a voice-acting career (“That Wizard Came From The Moon“), Tumblr, and more.
