A few additional pics, to further whet your appetite.

Here are a few more X-Men 3, or X-Men: The Last Stand, pics for you to check out. Judging from these shots, they seem to have kept the right feel and style of the movie's look intact, so that's certainly a promising start.
Ben Foster as Warren Worthington III, or Angel: Well, he looks a little bit camp in this particular shot. Kinda reminds me of that "lord of the dance" dickhead, Michael Flatley. Which isn't really a good thing. Don't worry though, he actually looks cool in the movie itself. Check out that preview footage again click here - you get to see Angel and his wings in action and it looks pretty awesome. This image is just hampered by an unfortunate pose really.
|Flying away on a wing and a prayer. Who could it be? Believe it or not, its just Angel. |
Halle Berry as Storm: The Storm character isn't one of the most popular in the comics. In the movies she is even less so. As undeniably beautiful as Halle Berry is, there's just not a lot of love for her version of Storm out there from the X-Men fanboys. That's putting it politely, too.
|At least it isn't Catwoman. |
Adding to this problem were the reports that Halle would only agree to return a third time if her part in the movie was increased, along with her wages.
She's an oscar winner now, you see, and should apparently be treated better because of that. Yeah, whatever.
One thing I'd like to know is, why did Miss Berry's take on Storm have a funny accent that came and went in the first movie and disappeared completely in the second? Oh well, at least it'll allow for more cool special effects when she uses her weather-based magical powers. That stuff always looks great (as does she, despite the white hair, which has been improved to be a lot less goofy looking now).
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine: This guy, on the other hand, is a huge fan favourite. It freaked me and most people out when we were first informed that "The Boy From Oz" was set to portray the ferocious fighting machine that is Wolverine. But Jackman not only pulled it off, he did an outstanding job of it.

There are a few people out there who claim that Hugh's Wolvie sucks, but don't pay any attention to those morons. Wolverine and the way Jackman plays him are the single best thing about the X-Men flicks. Which is high praise indeed, since there's so much else to like about them.
Chicks dig him too. A lot. Many females have told me how sexy he is. I don't know whether or not that means gay dudes also dig him. If there are any homosexual blokes reading this, let me know if you guys find him hot as well. I'm not being a smart arse, I'm genuinely interested in knowing that, just out of sheer curiousity.
Rumours have constantly been around that there will be a spin-off Wolverine movie. I believe that plan is still going to go ahead eventually. The other supposed spin-off is a Magneto film, which would take place in the past, when he was young. I'm really not too sure how good that one would be. I guess it could work, but it sounds rather less appealing to me than a Wolvie flick.
Okay then boys and girls, I hope you've enjoyed looking at these pretty pictures. We'll bring you further X-Men 3 coverage as it comes to hand.
