We’ve been waiting for a new X-Men film for quite some time now, including the infamous Magneto solo film, but Bryan Singer, director of X-Men and X-Men 2: X-Men United, is dishing out some secrets about the story of the film:
-The movie is set in the 1960s. JFK is President.
-Charles Xavier will have hair and use of his legs (mostly).
-The Hellfire Club are the antagonists, with Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones as Emma Frost (which means they are indeed ignoring the character as established in WOLVERINE).
-Costumes will be more “comic bookish” than previous mutant movies.
-No Cyclops or Jean Grey. But there are still MORE characters we haven’t heard about yet.
-The movie will have “a much more international feel than the prior X-MEN movies.”
I hope its good. You can read the entire article here.

It has been well documented that the bloom may be off the rose for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in 2010. Desperate move after desperate move, from time slot changes, to management changes, to Hulk Hogan, to the acquisitions of Rob Van Dam, Jeff Hardy, and Kurt Angle, to changing the ring; it seems like TNA has tried just about everything to become successful and what do they have to show for it: reports of embarrassing buy rates and an audience that quite simply will not grow.
