HBO's ‘Westworld’ First Look with Anthony Hopkins & James Marsden

HBO's ‘Westworld’ First Look with Anthony Hopkins & James Marsden

Fans who attended the Person of Interest panel at Comic-Con on Saturday were given a surprise treat, the first trailer for HBO's Westworld. While it may seem odd for an HBO trailer to debut during a CBS panel, Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan also co-created Westworld, which has been confirmed to debut sometime in 2016 on HBO. The network hasn't released the first trailer yet, but the show's page did debut four new photos, featuring series stars James Marsden, Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Westworld trailer shown at SDCC opens with an "ominous character voiceover" saying, "Bring her back online. Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?" Anthony Hopkins' character is also briefly featured in scenes that, like the photos below, depict a Western setting. The series is based on the 1973 film by Michael Crichton, which is set at a futuristic resort where wealthy patrons can visit recreations of different time periods and experience their wildest fantasies with life-like robots.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’: James Marsden Praises New Cyclops

This isn't the first time that another actor has taken over the role. Tim Pocock also played a younger version of Scott Summers in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. About taking on the new job, Tye Sheridan dropped some quick comments on The Hollywood Reporter, saying that he 'loved the last movie' and that shooting on the sequel starts 'this summer'. THR hasn't posted their full interview with the actor just yet, but they did supply a tweet. We also have some new fan art that depicts Tye Sheridan as he'll look in his Cyclops costume. Will he flaunt the original 80s visor as seen here? We can only hope so!

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’: James Marsden Wants Luke Bracey as Cyclops

X-Men: Apocalypse writer-producer Simon Kinberg revealed last month that the production will re-cast iconic X-Men characters such as Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey and others, since the movie is set in the 1980s, years before the events portrayed in 2000's X-Men. James Marsden, who returned as Cyclops in this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, revealed that he knows exactly who should play a younger Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse, his The Best of Me co-star Luke Bracey.

Simon Kinberg also revealed last month that X-Men: Apocalypse will close out the trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, the latter of which created a whole new timeline that brought Cyclops' girlfriend Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) back from the dead. It remains to be seen if the end of this trilogy will mean that the franchise will go back to focus on the original X-Men characters in this newly-established timeline.

James Marsden Wants to Return as Cyclops in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

James Marsden Wants to Return as Cyclops in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

When X-Men first debuted in 2000, a lot of fans had the biggest problem with James Marsden as Cyclops. Maybe he was too young. Maybe he was too pretty. But now that time has passed, 14 years to be exact, most fans have a strong affinity for his performance, which has only gotten better with age. By 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, the actor owned the character of Scott Summers, and just as many fans who hated his appearance in the original movie were now disappointed to hear that he wouldn't be returning for this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Especially since his diverse career turns since 2000 have pulled in a variety of different fans across genre spectrums.

But maybe he won't stay gone for long. Asked if he was going to return in X-Men: Apocalypse or any of the other impending sequels or spin-offs, James Marsden admits that he'd like to reprise his role as Scott Summers in some capacity, somewhere down the road. He has no ill will towards the X-Men: Days of Future Past filmmakers, and is as excited as any fan to see this next chapter. He also champions the return of Bryan Singer to the franchise.
