I used to be a big comic collector (e.g. X-men, Wildcats, Spawn), the extent of which I would spend all my lunch money on these popular works of art. One thing though: I was never fond of the X-men movie adaptations. The whole production just seems very contrived to me, satifying more of a commercial urge than the true passion of story-telling. Alas, that is the nature of movie adaptations… it is hard to stray from this assumed intent.
Still, I do take solice in the special effects crew for really stretching the human imagination. Even Penny says she wants to watch it because it’s simply fun seeing colorful characters with their amazing powers. I just hope this third X-men installment delivers on the action.
Needless to say, this is definitely a film that everyone will be watching. That being the case, IGN FilmForce shares with us an important tip…
This weekend, when the credits roll, when the audiences begins to filter out of the exits… keep your seat. And then, perhaps, share this little secret with a few of your friends: the movie isn’t over. We don’t want to spoil anything for you, but we want you to know that the scene that follows isn’t your typical post-credits tack-on. It’s a coda for one of the main characters. The scene is maybe 30 seconds in length, but it’s enough. And it will surely be one of the more talked moments in the fan community.
We’re entitled to make guesses, so I think it’s going to be about Wolverine. What do you think?
UPDATE: I’ve added the much requested spoiler in the comments. See comment #11 below…
