Kids these days. Getting cast in every movie. It's been 15 years since Bryan Singer's original X-Men suited up and now that X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past have revitalized the franchise, the original team is getting recast. Specifically, Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm (played by ancient geezers James Marsden, Famke Janssen and Halle Berry in the original) are going to be played by a trio of teenagers in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. Oh, teens. With their Ariana Grande and their Code Red: Mountain Dew. What superhero roles will they steal next?

The most famous of the bunch is your new Jean Grey, Game of Throne's Sophie Turner. Only slightly less high profile is the new Cyclops, played by Tye Sheridan, who made an excellent impression in Tree of Life and Mud. Finally, Storm will be played by Alexandra Shipp, rebounding nicely from her last stint in Lifetime's widely loathed Aaliyah biopic. So, Hollywood's most unbreakable rule holds true: If you're an actor who is in any way popular, you will eventually be cast as a superhero ... Discuss

The tone of the upcoming Star Trek 3 may be a bit lighter than J.J. Abrams’ other recent contributions to the franchise. Deadline is reporting that Simon Pegg—one of the masterminds behind send-ups like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz—has signed on to co-write the new film. As Vulture notes, Pegg isn’t the only reason to believe that the upcoming Star Trek film might actually be kind of funny: In addition to the Fast and Furious movies, the Star Trek director, Justin Lin, was behind the lens on several episodes of Community, including the now-legendary paintball episode ...

Two of the universe’s greatest heroes have become mortal foes, and the NFL is to thank. It started when Chris Evans, better known as Captain America, tweeted Chris Pratt (aka, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord) some good-natured football smack talk. Pratt is an avowed Seahawks fan. And what other team would Captain America be cheering for other than the Patriots?

Well, as fate would have it, the Patriots and the Seahawks just happen to be squaring off in the Super Bowl next weekend. Evans tweeted to Pratt, “Well, well, well @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy,” to which Pratt replied, “@ChrisEvans We both know there's only one Captain America and his name is Russell Wilson. #SuperBowlBound #LOB #Repeat.” Obviously, Captain America did not take these words lightly, replying, “@prattprattpratt them's fightin words. Stakes? #whatisaseahawkanyway #somethingtombradyhunts”

At that point, the two made a wager worthy of their hero status. Pratt suggested, “@ChrisEvans OK. Seahawks win you fly yourself to Seattle, visit @seattlechildren hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th man flag.” Obviously, it was a challenge Captain America was proud to take on. He tweeted, “@prattprattpratt I accept. And when the Patriots humiliate your seachickens, I expect Star-Lord to arrive at @chris_haven in a Brady jersey.” Superheroes do exist after all, and they take their football seriously ... Discuss

Anne Hathaway made an appearance on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show to discuss her new movie, Song One. The interview is a little slow and uninteresting until about the 1:45 mark when Hathaway describes the movie.

I play a young anthropologist getting her Ph.D. in Morocco ... And then her little brother who's 19 calls her up and says, "I'm dropping out of college to become a musician," and she doesn't react very well. And they hadn't spoken for six months and then he gets hit by a car and is in a coma.

Something about that last phrase struck Stewart and Hathaway with a fierce case of the giggles and the rest of the interview is pretty much just the two of them trying to stop laughing. Not great for Song One PR, but definitely good television ... Discuss

In one of the most iconic moments in American movie history, underdog prizefighter Rocky Balboa runs up the stairs of Philadelphia’s Art Museum as “Gonna Fly Now” triumphantly blares in the background. Obviously, tourists to the city regularly visit the staircase to reenact the epic scene and relive the magic of the Rocky franchise. This week, a group of friends got the surprise of a lifetime when Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone, happened to spot them. One of the lucky fans explained to Philadelphia news station 6ABC, “He said to us, ‘Man, you guys are fast. You’re making me look bad!'” Stallone, who was in town to film yet another addition to the series, even posed for a selfie with the Rocky fans. Even when he’s not in character, Stallone still manages to inspire greatness ... Discuss

If you thought Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy was a bloated, overly long exercise in battle scenes and dwarf sing-alongs, you are not alone. After all, the three-movie epic is based on a single, 320-page novel. An Internet user that goes by the name “TolkienEditor” has taken it upon themselves to edit down all of the annoying songs, never-ending battles and unnecessary side-plots to turn the nine-hour trilogy into a single, four-hour film. Currently, TolkienEditor’s super-cut is only available through torrent downloads, but hopefully Peter Jackson’s people will come to their senses and just offer this one on BlueRay. What TolkienEditor is doing is illegal, so we can’t support it, but by removing hours of dwarf slapstick, his heart is clearly in the right place ... Discuss
