That’s Real Great About ‘Apocalypse’ Starting Principal Photography In April But Um…
Yeah, I’ma need 20th Century Fox to hop on that ish…like yesterday.
Seriously, this man is serving all kinds of greatness as that character and I cannot be satisfied with these scraps they’re throwing us in terms of screen time any longer. Ensembles are
charitable great but Michael Fassbender’s Magneto needs his own film. Look at that photo above. Look at that face. Why does young Magneto not yet have a film in the pipeline?
Then we get this in DoFP:
Still serving all kinds of badassery, still raising all kinds of hell, still not giving a fuck what you think of him, still hating your non-mutant behind and still making you love him. Fassbender.
The man deserves his own Magneto movie. Why? Because…
Oh, and I’m gonna need Quicksilver all up in it ‘cuz Evan Peters is baby Bae.
Can we make this happen, Fox? And soon, man. Not 5 years down the line.
This has been a stan rant.
X-Men: Apocalypse Will Begin Filming In April 2015 In Montreal
When X-Men: Days of the Future Past was released earlier this year the franchise was at a definite crossroads. 20th Century Fox took a huge gamble by reuniting an enormous cast of returning actors with a production budget of over $200 million dollars. If the film was received badly it could have crushed the property. However the movie performed extraordinarily well, grossing over $745 million dollars at the global box office and critics loved it as well (read our review). During the leadup to the film’s release, director Bryan Singer (whose legal entanglements have since cleared up) openly talked about his and writer Simon Kinberg’s plans for the next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Those plans were confirmed with the after-credits scene which featured a young En Sabah Nur, the young Apocalypse, in ancient Egypt.
Filming for X-Men: Apocalypse will begin in April 2015, in Montreal. According to ScreenRant, set construction will begin in December and all signs are pointing to the core members of the First Class team returning including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence, and perhaps some members of the older cast. (It seems that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is a given at least.) Singer previously gave his thoughts on the upcoming sequel to Slashfilm:
"We’re going to deal (with) the notion of ancient mutants – the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it’ll be a contemporary movie – well, it’ll take place in the ’80s… The ’80s is a period now – it’s hard for me to believe that! ‘Apocalypse’ will have more of the mass destruction that ‘X-Men’ films, to date, have not relied upon. There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle…One thing that interests me is the notion of ancient mutants. What would people thousands of years ago, without the benefit of science, think mutants were? And more importantly, what would mutants thousands of years ago think they were? Gods? Titans? Angels? Demons? And if such mutants did exist thousands of years ago, what became of them? Did one survive?"
This will be the X-Men franchise’s first disaster movie. It almost sounds as if there will be destruction on a Man of Steel scale. Hopefully much like the last film, all the set pieces and action serves the plot’s larger purpose. Apocalypse is one of the first mutants in Marvel lore and it seems that Singer is going to give him a serious god complex. The film will be set in the 80’s which should be fun for the crew, which did a great job with 70’s themed production design in Days of the Future Past. Even more exciting is the introduction of the core members of the X-Men who have yet to be seen in the franchise’s new timeline. Expect to see Cyclops and Jean Grey, and judging by past comments it is very likely we could see characters such as Angel, Nightcrawler and Gambit.
X-Men: Apocalypse will open on theaters on May 27th, 2016.
Here’s Michael Having A Bit of A Spoiler
Alert Moment At The ‘Meet The Actors’ Event (x)
This was one of my favorite moments & correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think it was included in the published video.
Here’s Michael Signing Autographs At The Apple Store Soho Event On 8.7.14 (x)
Yeah, this right here is the part of my story I was describing when I wrote, "things became kind of chaotic". Though, it doesn’t look as chaotic as it felt.

Here’s Michael Fassbender Playing Guest DJ On KCRW’s ‘Guest DJ Project’
Gurl! You got to meet the man, the legend himself?! Ahhhhh lol, so happy for you!
Thanks, babe! I think I was actually caught off guard because I didn’t think I’d get to meet him. Once the event was over he (being the amazing person he is) walked over and sat down at the edge of the stage and started taking pics with people. Naturally a crowd began to form and there was no way I was going to break through it to get to him so I didn’t even try. Things became kind of chaotic with people trying to get at him so the Apple people ushered him off of the stage and seemingly out of the room. I started to leave looking like
Anyway, as I was about to walk down the stairs I turned around and there he was. He had come back out to take pics, sign autographs, give hugs and chat a bit with folks. The Apple people had those who were still there form a line and one by one the man met us all (and there were a lot of us). I’ve seen him in person numerous times (never actually meeting him) but this time he seemed especially welcoming, really warm, sweet and personable. He just seemed in really great spirits. Of course none of that stopped me from being a nervous wreck. First off, I wasn’t prepared for that stare. I’m sure it’s normal for him and everybody always talks about it but I was taken. the fuck. aback. So I actually averted my eyes to the floor because his stare is beautiful but intense. And I wasn’t ready. No, ma’am. But he was really sweet and greeted me with a “welcoming smile” (yeah, just like ‘Frank’…Lol) and his arm around my waist when we took our pic. People keep asking me what he smelled like but I honestly have no clue because in line the whole time I was like, “ask for a hug, ask for a hug, and don’t forget to friggin’ smell him, dummy!” (yeah, the teenage fan girl in me straight up chloroformed the grown woman who had minutes before inhabited my body and threw her in a dark, quiet corner). But anyway, his stare put the breaks on my breathing. And I wasn’t expecting him to put his arm around my waist, hand on my hip, or his head against mine when we took the pic so I really don’t think I drew breath until I walked out of the damn store. And by then I was like, “what the fuck just happened to me in there?” The Fass Effect is real.
Anyway, he looks really happy in our photo. I look like my laxative had just kicked in. But for those who have asked how tall he is in comparison to me, I’m under 5’4 but over 5’3 and the top of my head meets the bottom of his earlobe. And I was wearing flats with a very thin platform. Man, I was so nervous and probably a bit standoffish as a result, unfortunately. But he was just smiling the whole time. Seriously, he was looking like:
And I was feeling like:
I have got to have my shit together next time.
It was amazing being in such close contact with him for those few seconds but overall, the thing that I was most affected by is what a class act he was. I have a feeling it was his idea to come back out to meet everyone. He didn’t need to stay and he could’ve left with his co-stars but he chose to stay. Maybe he was really humbled by the fact that, as the Apple people said, it was the largest event they had ever had and that no one had ever shown up as early for one of them as people did that day. I’d like to think that’s why he chose to stay and show his appreciation for his fans. And the fact that he seemed in no rush to leave seriously left the most indelible impression on me. Such a sweet man and a class act. I’m so happy I went.
How Cute Is He Here? Y’all Know Good & Damn Well You’re Not Looking At His Face.
Because his arms are EVERYTHING. What did you think I was talking about?

Michael Fassbender At The AppleStore Soho’s ‘Meet The Actors’ Event 8.7.14
Here are some more screen caps I made & edited of Sassy Fass at this event.
This blog. It's the best and worst thing to happen to me... So much Fassy - so much procrastination at work. Thank you.... You're fighting the good fight.
Muah! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
so... is Michael dating Zoe again or are they just friends?
LOL. No, no… I’m just kidding. LMAO. I don’t know who Michael is dating. He and Zoe are obviously good friends. Maybe there’s more. Maybe not. It wouldn’t surprise me either way. Now, if there was a gun to my head and I had to guess, I’d say there’s probably more to it than meets the eye. But honestly, I’m the type of person who would see a guy standing next to Minnie Mouse and be like, “what the hell is he doing next to Minnie Mouse??? Is he f***ing Minnie Mouse? OMG, he’s totally banging that bitch!” So please don’t base your opinion off of mine. Zoe’s a pretty laid-back, drama-free, free-spirited chick, though. So it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s longing for that right now.
Just wanted to say that I love your blog, and it's one of the first places I go for my daily dose of Fassy!
Thanks, girlie! Hey, I just saw your pics of him at the Apple Store. Gorgeous! eserei27
can you do a gifset of michael fassbender and nicole beharie when they were both in jail from there movies Hunger and American Violet?>
Uh-uh. But only because I don’t make gifs. There are loads of people who do, though. Maybe one of them would be happy to oblige? That would be an interesting set to be sure.
What I say here I don't say to be mean but to make you think. Do you realize how petty you sound when you make digs at other people/sites? I used to like your tumblr but it has become so negative. It's more about you and your ego than Michael Fassbender and his fans. Please try harder to filter the negativity and be only positive.
Negative? I don’t say this to be mean and pardon my French but WHAT in the actual fuck are you talking about? Maybe you could enlighten me without the ‘anon’ option since I know you wrote me from within Tumblr and not outside of it. But for the record and just to set things straight, my site has always been about me and what I think and what I want and what I like - FIRST and foremost. Hence it’s inception. I don’t get paid by anyone to do it and therefore it’s always going to be about me. If you like it, that’s fine. If you don’t, that’s fine, too. But what’s not fine is you trying to make your problem my problem. And if you happen to have a problem with me taking issue with other fan sites taking things that I made and listing themselves as the source, well, friend, you’re going to continue to have that problem. As for negativity or anything else, I don’t know who gave you an impression otherwise but it’s only ever going to be up to me to decide what I need to “try harder” to do or not do. So feel free to stick that in your filter as I have no use for it.
