Here at IGN we occasionally like to showcase something from geekdom’s rich history — a pop-culture Time Capsule, if you will, that gives us a peek in to the past, perhaps providing a new appreciation for previous projects.If you’d like, please check out the past few Time Capsules:
Check out the first Star Wars Comic-Con panel in 1976 The Office: Watch Seth Rogen, Bob Odenkirk, and more audition for famous Dunder Mifflin characters Watch Batman v Superman’s 2013 Comic-Con announcement Why Tim Burton wanted an ‘average’ Batman in Michael Keaton That time HBO and Tom Hanks made Hamilton the bad guy
This month, the first X-Men movie celebrates 20 years of SNIKT!’ing and Cerebro’ing, and so to celebrate the occasion our Time Capsule is a loving look back at the film that made Hugh Jackman a star, Ray Park a toad, Bruce Davison a puddle of slime, and brought so many comic book fans’ dreams to life for the first time on the big screen.This film would give birth to a long-running franchise; one filled with highs (First Class, Logan) and lows (too many to list here) that would unload a bub-ton of Wolverine into multiplexes. These 12 films would delight us with Deadpool, dizzy us with a nonsensical timeline, and drag us with two failed attempts at a Dark Phoenix storyline. And one day, in the future, on a giant spaceship holding the last remnants of humanity, exploring space in an attempt to find a new hospitable world, The New Mutants will finally air in the community corner of the cafeteria.The first X-clip for our Time Capsule is a fun flashback to the Wolverine vs. Mystique fight. This behind-the-scenes video features Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Romijn, their stunt doubles, some wire work, and a cruel joke about a Mystique sequel that would take 1,200 days to shoot (it took Romijn seven hours to get fully blue)…This next clip is a lot longer, containing Storm vs .Toad, Logan vs. Canadian Cage Fighter #2, Magneto throwing cars, Wolvie rockin’ that Double-D (Double Denim), and Cyclops being a total loser (it’s implied). Take a look!In the realm of X-news, one of the best X-Men films, Days of Future Past, heads to Disney+ in July. Also, check out this sneak peek of the second half of Robot Chicken’s Season 10, revealing how the X-Men really discovered their powers.Plus, watch Ryan Reynolds hilariously try to join an online X-Men reunion.The Best Superhero Movies and TV Shows on Netflix Right Now
