New Ad Shows Off Just How Fast Quicksilver Is! Trust Us, Watch This!

~Matt Key Alright guys, forgive us. We here at the Geek Girl Authority do not endorse this product and, frankly, are a little disgusted at ourselves that we are sharing an honest-to-god advertisement with you as a news story we are writing — but it’s REALLY flipping cool and we just had to. The commercial features Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters himself, flirting with some other random mutant student in the X-Men school who is just DYING for faster broadband service. This sends Quicksilver into a high-speed action sequence where he runs faster than one of Cyclops optic blasts...

Quicksilver Sequence In X-Men: Apocalypse Is Bigger Than You Can Imagine!

~Matt Key Holy Crow! We knew they worked hard on these superhero films, but this is an all new high! In the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer that hit the internets just today, we saw what looks like it will be one of the more memorable sequences in the film — Quicksilver (Evan Peters) running down a hallway, looking like he could be scared. We also knew that they worked on that one sequence for about six weeks, as reported a couple weeks ago. That one three minute sequence equaled the same production time of a small independent film! Three minutes! Well, now...

Evan Peters Is Excited For How Much Quicksilver There Is in X-Men: Apocalypse!

~Matt Key In X-Men: Days of Future Past we had some wonderful moments, but one of the best, most popular came in the form of Evan Peters portrayal of Pietro Maximoff, a.k.a. Quicksilver. In it, we saw the world from his perspective when he used his mutant power, which is superspeed, to save Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) a.k.a. Magneto, from some guards in a kitchen. Here’s the scene in case you A. forgot what I’m talking about or B. just want to see it again. Which you should. What was slow motion to...

Anything DC Can Do, Marvel Can Do Better

by Paul Preston The Movie Guys DC and Marvel cinematic universe spoilers abound. Sing it! “…Marvel can do anything better than DC” This title reflects an old Irving Berlin song, but, although catchy as hell, doesn’t really frame the Marvel/DC dichotomy correctly because it lists Marvel as following DC, which has never, ever happened. To DC’s credit, they’ve wanted a Justice League movie since the early 2000s, before the Marvel Cinematic Universe began. Directors like Wolfgang Petersen and George Miller were batted around to make it, but it could never get off the ground. By 2007, production on Iron Man had begun and the...

The Hulk To Get Expanded Storylines in THOR: RAGNAROK, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR and UNTITLED AVENGERS

Think back to 2015. Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theatres. You’re in the audience, excited to see the birth of The Vision (Paul Bethany), excited to see Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (Evan Peters and Elizabeth Olsen, respectively) use their powers, and eager to see all of the Avengers take on this evil AI — Ultron, as played by James Spader.    And then you’re surprised that Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) are falling for each other. And in the middle of you trying to figure out if you like this pairing or not, as the...

Our Favorite Twinkie Eating Speedster Evan Peters Returns For X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX

Excellent news! According to THR, Evan Peters will be returning for the next X-Men film. Quicksilver is back, baby! The fan favorite is set to join the other returning cast members. For fans of the comic, they will remember Quicksilver was not a part of the Dark Phoenix storyline. So we’re unsure how he will play into the overall story. Since the character’s popularity, we’re sure he’ll be prolific but hopefully not too overbearing. As said, he joins returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hault, James McAvoy.  RELATED: Jessica Chastain in Talks to Play Lilandra in X-MEN: DARK...

Movie Review – LOGAN

LOGAN RUNS Logan by Paul Preston The Movie Guys Halfway through Logan, James Mangold’s take on the last adventures of Wolverine, elderly Charles Xavier is in a hotel room, hiding out from those who would like to end mutant-kind once and for all. He sits in the room with Laura, a young mutant, something he and Wolverine were not prepared to see again, and he watches Shane, the enduring Alan Ladd/Jack Palance western. This is fitting because Logan is very reflective of a classic western with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine as the gunslinger who’s seen bigger days making a last-ditch...

X-Men: Apocalypse Deleted Scene Gives Us Everything We Hoped to See in the Film

~Matt Key See. This here is what we all want to see in an X-Men movie. Team building. Friendship. Camaraderie. That’s not to say we don’t love seeing Cyclops tear things up with his optic beams or Nightcrawler bamfing all over the place or Storm shooting lightning from the skies. Of course we love that stuff. The problem is that we want to see all of that stuff in the context of a team that, though they may have their interpersonal conflicts here and there, they love each other and work together as a team. That is, we want...

The Justice League On-Set Media Scrum

The Justice League On-Set Media Scrum I wasn’t there, but I read all the articles so you didn’t have to! IMHO by Chris Morris Lapsed DC Fanboy So if you are like me, you woke up the other morning to a blitzkrieg of articles on my Facebook feed, all about the upcoming “Justice League” movie, set to hit theatres in November of 2017. So why did this even happen? Apparently, with the internet being all like that these days, promoting movies is important to do, even while the films are still shooting and won’t be out for 17 months!...

Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

EVERYTHING THEY BUILT WILL FALL…BUT NOT YET X-Men: Apocalypse Review by Paul Preston The Movie Guys Ah, screw it. I enjoyed this movie. Going into X-Men: Apocalypse, I couldn’t help but have the nagging negativity of the critical base floating around somewhere in my subconscious, to where I was waiting and waiting for this movie to totally fly off the rails. It got BIG, perhaps too big, but it never got out of director Bryan Singer’s control, and if you’re like me and haven’t missed one of these movies, you’ll find a visit to the mutant world of The...
