What can make X-Men better? Time Travel. What makes Time Travel better? Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy’s awkward bromantic relationship. It’s okay, we forgive them. Because this summer, we get the next installment of Marvel’s X-Men legacy.
This installment finds previous stars uniting with current favorites. We have Hugh Jackman (from Scrubs infamy) with James McAvoy, Halle Berry with Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender with, well, who are we kidding. He’s good enough alone.
What we expect: star power. And lots of it.
What we hope: actual plot worth watching.
What we will tell our friends: come with us!
What we will tell our acquaintances: it was a fun summer movie.
Who we will root for: Hugh Jackman (guilty pleasure?)
Who we will really root for: Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellan
Who we hope dies: Beast. Twice. And then again for a third time just to prove a point.
