Timelines? pt.1

As the popularity of comic book-adaptations into movies grew, as did the extensivity of the immense amount of timelines already existing, where a number of variations of backstorys to the same character or storyline co-exists side by side, and as long as you’re not a super-geek, you’re none the wiser. But every know and then, even the common man found errors in movies, making them profoundly confused, wich in turn made them post angry, cynical and most often then not, insane and ridiculous posts, all over the internet.

For example, the X-men franchise was, is and will always be a widely discussed subject when talking about timelines. Since the latest adaption X-Men: First Class struck the world, with what was supposed to be a prequel to the earlier films in the series, the forums lit up like the New York City-skyline on the 4th of July, with angry fans complaining about the contradictions amongst the movies etc.

But the one thing EVERYONE seems to be forgetting, is the fact that the comic books are reaking havoc (X-man name-play intended) with the timelines themselves, giving every screenplay-writer and movie-maker in the world free reins to do pretty much whatever they want, as long as they have the support of the company’s behind it or whatever.

I’m not going in to deep with this right now, but it is a subject I am very much interested in delving deeper in later on, but for now, I’m leaving you with this little thought. And I hope it’ll spark some discussion amongst you readers aswell! 😉

Until tomorrow….. Peace out hombrés!


About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
