X-Men 3 gets a (dumb) title
From Iwatchstuff, "20th Century has confirmed that a title for X-men 3 has been chosen and is currently being cleared for usage: X-Men: The Last Stand. The title had already appeared in USA Today, making it the rumored front-runner up to the confirmation. The Last Stand narrowly beat out fan favorite title: The One That Will Probably Suck. I Mean, Brett Ratner Is Doing It. And Juggernaut Is Way Too Small. But Did You See Beast? He Looks Kind Of Good, Huh?
Also confirmed yesterday was 13-year-old Ira Schultz, whose bar mitzvah went splendidly. Congrats, Ira!"
Also, from Superherohype, "Just wanted to pass on these new X3 pics of Storm, Callisto, Psylocke and Stacy X, Brett Ratner & The X-cast, and Angel. These have leaked onto the internet recently. It appears that Storm (Halle Berry) is wearing a new navy X-Men uniform without a cape. I'm not sure if this means the old leather uniforms will go obsolete at some point in the film or not; time will tell. The other shot features our first glimpse at Stacy X and Psylocke in costume! The third still shows Brett and the gang for a posed group shot. The last one is of Angel and appeared in Entertainment Weekly.
Meanwhile, 'Ryan' says Vinnie Jones again confirmed he has signed for X4 and X5:
I have some exciting X-Men news. I was watching the entertainment today channels on ITV's GMTV and they were interviewing Vinnie Jones at his children's charity avent where he was auctioning off his movie chair.
Of course, they asked him about the upcoming X-Men movie and he replied by saying about the long make-up process and how his character has some good one liners.
Then, just as the interview was finishing, he said he is looking forward to work more as Juggernaut as he has signed for X-Men 4 and 5. I was pleased to hear this news and I hope that it is true that the X-Men phenomenon won't end with just three movies."
