1.Fox Remembered Way Too Late That These Characters Were Based On Comicbooks If you recall The original X-Men movie their costumes were black leather, which was probably done because the producers thought that audiences wouldn’t accept superheroes in all their technicolor, spandex-clad glory.

For instance one critic called foul on the black hole being visible. And while it’s true that according to science they cannot be seen–you don’t see the black […]
