Our weekly column looks at the recent trend of superhero film production through Twitter.
That’s right folks, it’s that time of the week again. By far the biggest news to come out the superhero tweetsphere has been the unveiling (finally) of The Wolverine teaser trailer… and it kicks ass. Mr James Mangold, director of said film, unveiled the trailer initially through Twitter using the Vine platform, which director James Gunn, of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy has also been using to post brief snippets of footage from his daily comings and goings. By doing this, Mangold is really utilizing the platform of Twitter for maximum effect, and I can’t wait to see what footage Mr Bryan Singer might unveil through his Twitter feed, which has also been buzzing with interesting things.
So far, Singer has been using it tweet pictures of his travels to and fro across the land, but he did post an interesting peek into the wardrobe department, which I quite liked, and I hope Singer may post footage at some point as the production of X-Men: Days of Future Past marches on:
Marc Webb meanwhile has been continuing his almost daily run of BTS pics, which reveal more of the infamous Ravenscroft Institute that seems to be the focus of filming right now, and I can’t wait to see how it figures into the film. Here’s a nice peek at it below:
James Gunn and Robert Rodrgiuez, director of Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, continue to be quiet on the superhero front, so I shall mention them in the column when they post something along those lines, but I will instead leave you with some very nice posters that Mr Gunn posted recently for The Wolverine. Although not as impressive to me as the initial teaser trailer, they do a nice job overall I feel and making me want to see the film even more at this point.
Or I could just go and watch that trailer again…
