“Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.” – Batman, The Dark Knight
Evidently, fans of the X-Men franchise were due for a reward this past weekend. In honor of the terrific X-Men: Days of Future Past (just watched it and LOVED IT!), this post will focus on eight ‘Scene-Stealing’ performances in comic-based movies. Not only did these characters steal the scene, but they also helped propel the actors & actresses portraying them to Hollywood’s “Mega-Star” List.
So, without further delay… “Here We Go”!
I think Joss Whedon owns a shawarma franchise. But I get ahead of myself.
There were a bunch of ways to watch The Avengers opening day. Okay, a bunch of legal ways. You could go see it during the normal evening hours on the Friday it opens. You can go to the Friday midnight screening. Or you could attend a marathon screening of all the films in the Avengers series, followed by a midnight premier.
The experience was definitely a unique one. I met with a group of friends at a local Denny’s for breakfast (it was convenient to the theatre as much as anything else).
Following that, it was fifteen hours of film madness.
